(The above is the cover of the book I read and the lower right right cover is the CURRENT COVER - Publishers - always changing!)
But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D.
Kacey doesn’t want to feel. She doesn’t. It’s safer that way. For everyone. But sexy Trent finds a way into her numb heart, reigniting her ability to love again. She starts to believe that maybe she can leave the past where it belongs and start over. Maybe she’s not beyond repair.
But Kacey isn’t the only one who’s broken. Seemingly perfect Trent has an unforgiveable past of his own; one that, when discovered, will shatter Kacey’s newly constructed life and send her back into suffocating darkness.
"I loved it!! A MUST READ! I won't say any more. The shock value from the very start to the very end must be experienced blindly for full impact. Just know I think you should read it."--Maryse's Book Blog
"This is one of the best contemporary novels to hit shelves this year, and a must-read for those who love realistic stories about strong females."--Jen, Hypable.com
Perhaps what you learn about this book, if you are a parent, can be explained to your teenagers, if you have them. This is one book that has a powerful lesson to be learned.
Kacey is one person not to be messed with. She works out every day in a boxing gym doing kick-boxing with guys, mostly out of anger because of what happened to her years ago. She is still stuck with all this anger, and it still hasn't gone away. She feels alive when she is working out and getting all her frustration out because when she is not working out, she does not feel.
Mostly, can Kacey ever find it in her heart to forgive?

This novel was compelling to read. She had me glued to the pages, and I didn't really stop reading until I was done. I didn't even know how much time flew by! I remember this story like I just read it yesterday. It's one you will not forget - ever.
