girlfriend saw the light and boy did that light shine bright.Aaron, this man is a freaking hunk I fell for him just like Henri He had a few issues but I totally understand how he was in the position he was in We all get comfortable in situations and relationships and what happened to Aaron is something we can learn from I love the instant attraction he and Henri had and I adore that he was there for her He helped her see the light and ultimately to find herself.Great read and I m glad I picked it up But then I m biased when it comes to Elizabeth Reyes Ohhhh very interesting and very different I can see heartbreak written all over this book but it s so addictive to put down On to the second part of the book.. So respectful of ALL parties involved, truly well done.
