Jesse was freedom when so much of my life meant confinement. He was laughter during dark nights, he was the warrior who scared the monsters under my bed away . . . he was my friend

Scarlett has everything and nothing. She was known as the Ice Princess because they think she has no emotions, no feeling but they have no idea! She is full of anger, full of fear and confusion! The secrets she keeps…

Jesse’s a train wreck, and he taints anyone in his vicinity. Dating him would be a social, emotional and literal death sentence.

Jesse’s family have a farm. When Jesse was six years old, his mother had told him a story about they’re being cursed. And she made him promise to never leave the land. As long as he never leaves the land, he will be safe. The land can protect him but if he leaves, he will lose the protection. So Jesse and land became one.

Each midnight meeting pushes Jesse and Scarlett to confront their secrets and their feelings for each other. But as love blooms, the curse rears its ugly head…

This book grabbed my attention from the first chapter. It has been a while since I’ve read one of this author’s books, missed her writing! The hurt, the sadness, the happiness, I loved everything about this story. But what I liked most was the story wasn’t focused only on their relationship. Actually, I think it was mostly about their own demons and how they tried to fight with it and help each other. This story isn’t a thriller but the whole time I was at the edge of my seat and chewing my nails! Told in dual POV, 1st person. It’s a second chance, standalone novel. So well-written and full-on angst. It’s well-paced with well-developed characters. Overall, loved it and hope you enjoy it as well!
