4.5 stars at 24% I wanted to put this aside because I was not feeling it at all. I stuck with it and in the end I am very happy that I did. Hence the 4.5 stars. I had a hard time getting into this one in the beginning. Just could not seem to connect with the characters at all. Then about 30 % in something changed and I was connected completely with the characters and had to finish reading it to see what was going to happen with Slade and Samantha. Samantha Is broken hearted and moves to a new City to get her life back on track. She takes a job as a bartender and has a couple people that she calls friends and trusts. She realizes all to soon how one person's wrong decision has changed her life forever. Samantha is strong, she is independent, she can be rude when she needs to be, and we see that when she meets Slade for the first time. Slade swoon worthy for sure, but Man-whore who does not do relationships at all, that is until Samantha calls him one night looking for her Boyfriend and he falls in love with her voice. He says she sounds like an angel. once the two of them meet Samantha is Rude at first, but then decides to give things a shot and see where they go. It is hard for Samantha to keep her distance and she is finding that her feelings for Slade are undescribable. Slade doesn't do relationships so all the feelings he is starting to have for Sam are hard for him to figure out. He has never felt like this for anyone before. I love how the Long Family was already connected to Samantha and how they all treated each other with so much love and affection. It made you want to be a part of their family. This book was Hot, And by the end I was wanting more and did not want it to end. I hope we get more from the other characters in the book with some nice cameo's of Sam and Slade mixed in there.
