New Adult sensation Christina Lee is back with a sexy and emotional tale about a bad boy on the edge and a good girl about to lose control....

A college baseball star isn't supposed to have skeletons in his closet. But Daniel Quinn is hiding a past so dark, he refuses to let anyone get close. Except there’s something about Ella Abrams that goes beyond attraction—something that makes him want to open up.

Ella has suffered enough heartache to fill one of her psychology textbooks, but she keeps that part of herself hidden behind a bubbly exterior. Until she receives an anonymous call while working a suicide help line and the voice on the other end touches something inside of her that she can’t ignore.

Soon Ella and Quinn’s physical connection heats up, even as their revealing hotline talks intensify. But by the time Ella realizes that her seductive jock and her sensitive caller are the same guy, it might be too late to save him—or to stop herself from falling too far….
Holy smokes! Talk about sexual tension, steamy scenes and hot boys! Once again Christina manages to leave me open mouthed and craving for more. This book was really good, so good that I finished in one seating. Forget about house stuff and social life, this was too good to put down! I fell in love with the characters.  They lured me into their world and kept me captive. But everything is not sunshine in paradise, there were moments that I was a sobbing mess because of what (trying to be vague) that was happening.

This story is told in dual point of view, which I have a love/hate relationship with. In the case of this book, the dual POV is well done, I felt connected, with each one of the main characters. They had their own voice and characteristics. Ella is so sweet and I love her! I love her relationship with her friends and family. Quinn on the other hand, handsome and mysterious. The boy is hot, he is an athlete and he drives a hot car. I mean what else can a girl ask for? The chemistry between Ella and Quinn is amazing. When they are together they can light a forest on fire. I was really pleased with how they were able to overcome all the obstacles in their way, and found a way to make their relationship work.

Overall, I absolutely loved Ella and Quinn's story! The plot, the twists, the romance, the tension, and the steamy sex scenes made this book unique. The story-line was really close to reality and I feel that it could be someones story.  The author did a great job at making the characters have their own voice and style. I enjoyed every moment. I cried and laughed. At the end I was left waiting for more. Christina Lee keep the hot boys coming!
