Thea got wasted in Vegas and married Xander who is her brother Cole best freind. Cole had made it clear to Xander to stay away from Thea. All Thea ever wanted with Xander’s dad as his assistant for the summer and they lived in the same house. Xander asked her to wait till summer was over before deciding what to do about their marriage.
This was an excellant story. It was a romance but more than that. It held secrets, betrayal, physical and mental abuse, friendship, family, marriage, hidden love, terror, anger, fear, stalking, and so much more. For Xander and and Thea to have that special bond from childhood til marriage I have on occassion seen that but it is rare and very awesome to read. This story had me from page one until i closed the last page. Then to have a second story line or even third just came all together in one story I believe I have a new arthur to read. I loved the characters other than Thea’s father. I loved how the characters all interacted and how very realistic this story seemed to me. I loved all the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
