She’s driven to save her life. He’s haunted by breaking one. Some secrets are risky to share. But nothing’s more powerful than falling in love… Nineteen-year-old Sophie has the kind of hope that makes her do weird things—like leave her family and friends behind in her small hometown and travel thousands of miles to a strange city—Los Angeles. She didn’t plan on getting into the middle of a bar fight on the USCLA campus her first night in town. She didn’t want to be rescued by twenty-one-year-old Alejandro, the hottest guy she’s ever met. She has no time to fall for a guy because her stakes are high—life and death. Sophie’s starting a promising, experimental USCLA Medical study that could heal her debilitating disease. But California’s filled with all kinds of alternative healers offering medical miracles. When she ventures on her own to find them, she quickly discovers that L.A.’s a tough city, with bad guys more than happy to take advantage of her. She hires Alejandro to be her driver and her bodyguard. Their journeys take them to sunny beaches, dicey ghettos, campus hang-outs, gang-infested hoods and celebrity parties. And she learns that healing doesn’t always come the way you think you need it. Sophie’s healing is six-foot-two-inches tall, has stunning hazel eyes, black, shiny hair and a rock solid chest that shelters her. Her healing is a smart, gorgeous Alpha Boy with a killer sense of humor—Alejandro. As they fall in love, she realizes Alejandro isn’t your typical college party boy—he has a dangerous past. And Sophie isn’t the only one who keeps secrets. A Story of Hope. A Story of Love. A Story of Redemption. (HEA for Sophie and Alejandro.)

My Rating: 4.5 Book worms.
Oh My Word.
Like for reals.
This super strong girl. She is seriously ill (Well not yet but that’s just semantics) packs up everything and moves to a different city. But not to save her own life. No. That would be way too selfish. No she goes to save the life of someone close and dear to her. On her explorations etc she runs into the ever so sexy Alejandro. And can I say it again? Oh My Word.
These two have like instant chemistry but as with any NA angst filled up and down romance they obviously don’t just hook up from the start. You get to read it all. The good to the bad to the absolutely weird. Not only that though – you also get to meet a whole cast of fun characters.
I loved it. All of it. MORE!
