5 Star Review
I have been wanting to read this book since I finished Pieces For You.  This book did not disappoint me, it exceed my expectations!!!

Sam is trying to put her life back together after a brutal attack that almost killed her.  She complete shuts down and won't speak to anyone, but her best friend Everleigh.  Sam was not happy with Ev when she found out that she had to move across the country to get help.  She only went for Ev.  She couldn't hurt her by become a shell of a person.  Sam doesn't want to get help at first and fights it until the therapist reminds her that she made a promise to Ev that she would try to heal and get help. Is Sam strong enough to survive and put her life back together?  Will she ever open up to another male again?

Griffin will never regret anything more in his life then not making Sam his girl right away.  He knew that Sam was meant to be his the moment he met her, but it always seemed like the timing was wrong.  After her brutal attack he wanted to be with her, but knew that she wouldn't want him there.  He ended up joining a gym to let out all the frustration he had from not being able to help her.  Even after her two month stay in Cali he had to wait another two months.  He knew that it would be a long shot for her to even want to be around him, but he had to try.  He was so scared he would frighten her with his feelings, but he needed her to know that HE was HERS!!  Will he get Sam to open up to him?  Can he help her heal?

This book is amazing.  It deals with a very hard topic.  I knew this book was going to be hard going into it, but Genna did an amazing job with giving us some happy, laughter filled moments.  It didn't take away from the seriousness of the situation, just let us know that even in our worst moments there is always something to look forward to.  That as long as we have loved ones around us we have something to FIGHT for!! If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would!!  It is a must read book and I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Genna Rulon has for us!!!!
~ Excerpt ~
I raised up on my tippy-toes to peer through the peephole in the door, a recent addition courtesy of Hunter, and saw nothing but a wall of black. I paused for a moment, wondering if the person on the other side placed their thumb over the glass, but dismissed the idea when I noticed the contours of the black abyss before me. I verified that the security chain was engaged before unlocking the deadbolt and opening the door.
Jiminy Crickets! The black void was a shirt, specifically a tee-shirt undergoing durability testing as it strained to contain a scandalously muscled chest and shoulders most NFL linebackers would envy. I was confronted with a decision that no woman should ever have to make; do I look upward to assess the face attached to the scrumptious MMA pecks or go downward to find what other gifts God had bestowed on this specimen. Who was I kidding; there was only one right answer. As my gaze headed south I was greeted by a mid-section that was clearly well tended and hard as stone. Despite his sinfully tight shirt, I couldn’t make out his abs, but I suspected the shirt was covering a defined six-pack. Would it be rude to ask him to remove his shirt before inviting him in? Continuing my exploration I discovered, distressed denim, bulging in all the right places, draped over long thick legs. Hot damn! Hunter was finally paying off with the hot guy friends. I knew this day would come, it was inevitable, but I was still overwhelmed with gratitude—Ev would be getting an extra nice Christmas present this year.
I slowly raised my gaze, verifying that the sight I beheld was not a mirage, and it happened…finally. There was no tingle or twinge, not a whisper of desire or hint of arousal—no, the floodgates of my previously dormant libido opened and a tsunami of lust swept through me. My breath caught and I was forced to grip the doorframe to prevent melting to a puddle on the floor or climbing this tree of man-flesh like the primate I had been reduced to. I gathered the remnants of my cognitive function—the miniscule part of my brain not dedicated to making an erotic laundry list of the many naughty activities I wanted to enlist this man’s help with—to prepare for the possible disappointment should the face accompanying this god-like body be one that sent children shrieking in horror. On the other hand, guys had practiced the “bag over her head” technique for years. I needed to do it, rip the Band-Aid off and accept the possible disillusionment. I reinforced myself, inhaled deeply, and raise my eyes. You’ve got to be kidding me!
“Griffin?” I accused more than asked.
“Hello Sam, good to see you too,” he returned wryly. “Shall I turn so you can get the 360-degree show?”
