Aiden and Olivia dated in secret, but events pulled them apart. It has been years since they have seen each other, and Olivia is in trouble. Aiden is the one that she wants to protect her. I really enjoyed this story. It has suspense elements that I love along with the flowing style of Molly McClain’s writing. There were moments that I didn’t love either character, but as you got to know what drove them apart you can understand where Olivia is coming from, but you wished that Aiden had make more of an effort than he did. He holds a lot of anger towards Olivia, but if he has truly stepped up back then I think that the outcome would have been different. That to say, once these two come back together, you get that they are truly two halves of a whole. They are meant to be together. The hang-ups and issues that kept them apart in the past are just that… in the past. I loved getting to check in with Jesse and Hayden and I can’t wait to get the rest of these sibling’s stories!
