Can a guilty conscience keep wounds from healing? Fine arts major, Candace Parker, grew up with a mother who thinks image is everything, and her daughter's perfection will never be good enough. About to graduate college and pursue her dreams of becoming a professional ballerina, Candace decides it's time to let go and have a little fun. But fun is short-lived when a brutal attack leaves her completely shattered. The memories that consume and torment Candace are starting to destroy her when she meets Ryan Campbell, a successful bar owner. He feels instantly connected and tries to show her that hope is worth fighting for. But is Ryan harboring his own demons? As walls slowly begin to chip away, the secrets that are held within start to become painful burdens. At what point do secrets become lies?

Fading into obscurity

The story starts off well - tension, anticipation - it's all there. As it unfolds, it loses some pace.

There are many, many books just like this out there. Beyond patches of brilliant writing, the rest is flat. The opportunity to really delve into a rape victim's pain isn't fully explored and the love interest (I've already forgotten his name) is wooden and one dimensional. Even the 'betrayal' is inconsequential, its only purpose appearing to be the opportunity to write about the make up sex.

Overall, it is entertaining but really, there are better books out there if you're looking for mild, bland erotica. If you're looking for drama and angst promised by the rape victim, you'll get some, but not enough to make you snivel, let alone have a good cry.
