If you are a sensitive reader please be aware that you may find topics in this book to be terribly offensive. I'd rather you not read it than receive a bad review because you have been offended. This is a fictional story but the hideousness of what happens is gut-wrenching. This book does have a gorgeous HEA that will move you to tears.

The soul is not where it lives, but where it loves.

A countryside ranch, naughty notes and a neighbor boy. Kissing in silos and skinny dipping under a full moon. Ten years gone. An ocean, a tragedy...secrets and buried things. Letting go and hanging on. Remembering to forget.

My reality became his nightmare, but then my nightmare became reality.

Hawke Slater was not only my brothers’ best friend, he was a tender, sweet country boy. I never wanted to leave, but there was no choice for me. Two things kept my soul alive, and I’m hanging onto hope that one might be an option for my future.

I wish none of it had been my fault, but it was. 

Sloan Story McQueen has returned. Why would I hold out an ounce of hope that she’d want me once she finds out what I do for a living. Some call it obscene, but I’m just chasing storms and rainbows.

She’s holding onto something big. If only it were me.

This novel contains adult content and is not intended for sensitive readers.

" How the hell does a fifteen-year-old girl fall in love with an eighteen-year-old boy? I hardly fell. It was the opposite of that. A soar. A hurdle. A breakthrough to a new place in my heart."

Well, butter my biscuit and call me Sally!! I continue to be surprised and flabbergasted when I stumble upon such amazing authors I didn't even know existed. I must have been hiding under some unknowing rock. I'm so glad I muscled my way out from under that dreaded rock and found the A. Wilding Wells glowing light. This story was so beautifully written, that I wanted to literally cannon-ball myself right into the pages.  The characters rocked my world in every way. Hawke Slater was one tasty foul-mouthed treat.

"Each goose bump has his name on it, and the memory of his touch."

Sloan and Hawke were high school sweet hearts who fell in forever-love. Then Sloan leaves to go overseas to Amsterdam to live with her grandmother with no real explanation. 
*Cue Mysterious Music* 
Hawke was left confused and completely heart broken. So what does a young hot stud do when his heart is broken? He puts his other throbbing organ to good use.
 *Taps Mic* Introducing Hawke Slater...pornstar extraordinaire!!

"Well, look at you, Mr. Porn Star. Ejaculating your thoughts all over me."

Sloan comes back to her home town ten years later with a bag full of mystery in tow and a whole lot of worry over how she would be received. When Hawke and Sloan reunite, the remembered passion was off the charts hot. My Kindle was steaming up, Rose-and-Jack-rolling-around-in-a-car-on-the-titanic style. The obstacles they have to maneuver around were not limited to Hawke's lack of clothing career status though.

"Ten years become breaths, moans, and memory, as though we'd never left each other that last night on the willow bank, as though I'd imagined the torture and grief I'd gone through." 

"Our hunger rocks in hot sparks as we grunt out words in fiery machine-gun rounds of desire."

The love they once shared is clearly still burning fiercely within both of them. Hawke wants her back in his life, but Sloan kept a wall of distance between them, due to all the mysterious going-ons that happened whilst she was away for a decade. Details were revealed painstaking bit by bit. It drove me, as the reader, to the edge of Kindle abuse, and it eventually caused road blocks for their relationship. They couldn't move on until all the secrets were revealed. Once everything was out in the open, could they get through all the old scars and the fresh wounds?

"We're stained by each other and our combined past. Both of us seek the ink of our future..."

This story was not only enthralling and enchanting, but it was beautifully told. There was so much heat, mystery and beautifully written magic. The author's words flow so poetically that I found myself repeatedly rereading lines, just so the magic can really soak in. My highlight function on my Kindle was pushed to its limits. I didn't want it to end, but I couldn't stop reading. This was the first book I read from this author, but not the last. I plan to do some catching up, in true book junkie fashion. The unjust ban that Amazon put on this book was finally lifted, so now you can go and pre-order this amazing book. Get those one click fingers flexing my book junkies.

"She makes pain look beautiful, like a springtime blossom trapped in an ice storm."

4.5 out of 5 Magic Between the Pages, Passion-laced Stars!!!!
