Life's been hard for Zeke. Being a punching bag for his alcoholic father has turned him into stone. Not even the dodgy trailer park he lives in can scare him. Fighting is his release and sex, drugs, and his guitar bring him peace, but deep down Zeke isn't quite as hard as he makes himself out to be. When he meets Patience, she finds all his broken pieces and puts him back together. She's a ray of light in his shadowed life and the last thing he wants to do is bring her into his dark world. Playing careless is easy, playing the bad guy can be fun, but playing Patience is impossible, especially when she can see right through him.
Zeke isn't the only one who's broken, and for the first time in a long time, Patience feels alive. Her black and white world gets a shot of color when she meets Zeke. With his tattoos, piercings, and blunt honesty, he's unlike anyone she's ever met. She wants nothing more than to let go and ride the wild side with him, but some wounds never heal and the broken pieces of Patience aren't so easy to find.

"Truly a love story."
Anticipation, disappointment and salvation. Two damaged people from different worlds fall in love, but not easily or prettily.
Zeke. He makes bad decisions and can be a serious ass, but he is still learning what feelings are, while working his way out of the trailer park and avoiding the pitfalls that he doesn't even know are there (drugs, alcohol, violence, bad women). When he fell in love he was all in, and when he figured out what life is about he chose to live it properly.
Loved 2 narrators. It made the story more realistic and enjoyable. I loved how Megan was portrayed.
People can surprise you.
This book has more to it than you think and is worth your time and credit. Very engrossing and entertaining.
This was an audio book for me. It keeps you on the edge throughout the entire story. So much heart break and uncomfortable moments.
"Drama! Drama! Good story!"
Yes, I will listen to it. Zeke and Patience had a roller-coaster romance.
Tatiana yes - first time with Todd Haberkorn.
Yes, when Patience defended Zeke against his father. I like how Patience was getting Zeke jealous at the night club.
"This book is not for me"
This story is not for me. The main girl lead, Patience, is being sexually abused by her father. Wish i had known more about the story content before purchasing. The preview to the story doesn't mention this. Must say that Tatiana Sokolov is one of my favorite narrators.
"Not your typical love story"
I generally do not listen to audio books twice.
I believe this one stands alone because of the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the couple..
Snowflake was my favorite .... as she battled her demons to fight her way to love.
I do not intend this to be a spoiler ... but there is non-consensual sex between a daughter and father.
This book was worth a credit!
