Seventeen-year-old Jenna can’t take back what she did five years ago. No one will let her forget it. While battling anxiety, self-harm, and a hostile home environment, surviving is nearly impossible. That is until she meets Trevor. He’s the school’s new jock with attractive dark looks and a charming personality. A relationship was something she never planned on, but a relationship is what she gets. Trevor changes everything. She has secrets and scars that she’s only ever shared with one other person, her best friend Courtney, and sharing those with Trevor might just prove to be the hardest thing she’s ever done. But Trevor has secrets of his own, and once they’re revealed there’s no taking them back. Will Jenna give into the darkness and lose what’s left of herself? Or will she give into love, and finally live?

Note: Some scenes may be triggering to those who are struggling or have struggled with mental health or abuse


When I saw this gorgeous cover and read this synopsis I quickly rushed over to Amazon and one-clicked this book! I literally devoured this story in a day and a half (only because I had to work on homework – damn it for always getting in the way of my reading time) and was immediately left wanting more! I have to sat that I cannot wait to read the next book from this extraordinarily talented writer.

As someone who has seen mental health firsthand I have to applaud Rosie C. (Dominique Laura) for doing such a brilliant job at addressing this very controversial subject in such a delicate manner. I could tell that she put a lot of time and effort into every detail of this story. I just want to thank the author for writing a story that dealt with the issue of mental health. Growing up I watched both my father and younger sister struggle to come to grips with their mental health so I am so glad that she has decided to raise awareness for it!

I strongly recommend picking up this story today!
