We live. We love. We die.
He is my ultimate undoing.
She is my strength.
He will destroy me.
She will make me whole.
I need him more than the control that he craves.
I need her more than I need my next breath.
He knows me.
She sees me.
As much as I want to, I can’t let him in.
As much as I’ve tried, I can’t let her go.
Together, we need him.

When J.M. isn’t working her Monday-Friday 9-5 job, she’s spending her time reading, writing and with the love of her life.
She’s an all-around Canadian girl. Born and raised in a small city.
If you don’t see J.M. writing, you’ll find her with her nose in a book. Whether it’s her words or someone else’s, she’s drawn to it.
J.M. loves stories with Alpha broken males and that need to be ripped apart and put back together again. Men that fall to their knees over a wink or a giggle from their females.
Two things you will never find J.M. without; her cell phone and lip gloss. If she has both of those items, you have a happy girl.
Since starting her writing adventure in 2013, J.M. has met many people, real life, online, in her head and she loves every single one of them. Without the support from others, none of this would be possible and she’s grateful for all that has been given to her.

*** 3 1/2 stars ***
I was given an unedited arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I need to start by saying, I wanted to love this book. It had so many great pieces that unfortunately didn’t fit together for me. There were also quite a few plot holes that made it a little hard to follow at times.
This is the story of dependency. It’s a look inside relationships and how they ultimately grow or get destroyed based on your actions. It takes a close look at those demons we all lock away that come bubbling to the surface when we least expect it.
You have Hope, Xander and Caiden who are all very co-dependent on each other, in some form. The dependency is borderline unhealthy in some aspects. Xander and Caiden are best friends, yet Caiden holds 3 pretty big secrets from him (and a few smaller ones). Then you have Xander and Hope who dated when they were younger, up until Hope left town unexpectedly. They cross paths again, but their relationship is still toxic. I had to stop reading a few times because as much as Xander and Hope love each other, I couldn’t help but wonder…. why are they trying to make this work? Xander came across very selfish and Hope came across extremely weak. At what point do you realize that this other person isn’t your missing puzzle piece?
This book is full of secrets and heartache. You are given small clues a long the way that you have to figure out. Some you will and others you won’t see coming.
I gave this 3 1/2 stars.
