The only thing holding me back was my heart. You know, the broken one.
I knew if Jake and I got back together we would make our past relationship look like child's play. It would be a sweet footnote to this new, torrid love affair. "Jake and Eve 2.0" would be an uncontrolled explosion of sex and adoration.
Uncontrolled explosions were dangerous. Everyone knew that.
And yet, I couldn't seem to stop myself from playing with the matches.
Loving someone, and being in love, isn't always the same thing.
That's what Eve Daniels is trying to come to terms with when Jake Spencer suddenly returns to her life after 10 years of silence. Haunted by a past he had no power to control, Jake left everyone and everything behind in hopes of saving Eve from his demons. His one regret was breaking her heart.
From the moment they reconnect, it is clear to Eve the passion, brilliance, and determination that first attracted her to Jake are stronger than ever. So strong that fighting their pull seems useless. But falling back in love isn't as easy as letting the walls down. Eve soon realizes the choices they've both made come with consequences. Ones that will test how deep her love runs for a man living with a storm inside.
Recommended for ages 17+ due to explicit language and sexual situations

You Want *Trashy* Here -If You Want A Plot Move On
I was given this book in exchange for money thoughts, opinions and this review.
The Publishers Summary sounded really good, Eve Daniels and Jake Spencer are a couple and they are in love. Then something happens and Jake disappears for 10 years. During that time Jake has not reached out in any way shape or form to Eve. So, when they meet again Jake hopes to start up where they left off, Eve is not having any of it, for the first couple of chapters anyway.
The plot is a bit weak and the "ghost" that Jake is running from is obvious. But one wonders why a grown man wouldn't take care of this past piece of his life.
There is a lot of intimacy throughout the book and if you are into bedroom scenes, bathroom scenes, kitchen seems and exhibition scenes outside you will enjoy this book.
However, for me, the plot really wasn't there. There was no dealing with any of it until the very end of the book.
Leyna Baltimore is a great storyteller. There are the two main characters, Jake and Eve & a second couple who is given a lot of times in this book. Leyna Baltimore gives each character an individual voice which is tough to do, I would imagine. Good performance.
Notes: This should be rated for mature audiences over 18. Mature themes and strong language
Credit worthy/$: I would not purchase this outright nor would I use a credit on it but if you're looking for something that's hot & easy you may like it. Based on the publishers summary, I was really excited to listen to this book. However, it really didn't have much more then the descriptions of Eve and Jake and the risk and escapades. A couple who does not care who hears them or where they are.
