It knew if Jake and I got back together we’d make our past relationship look like child’s play. It would be a sweet footnote to this new, torrid love affair. ‘Jake and Eve 2.0’ would be an uncontrolled explosion of sex and adoration.
Uncontrolled explosions were dangerous. Everyone knew that.
And yet, I couldn’t seem to stop myself from playing with the matches…” ~Eve
Loving someone and being in love aren’t always the same thing.
That’s what Eve Daniels is trying to come to terms with when Jake Spencer suddenly returns to her life after ten years of silence. Haunted by a past he had no power to control, Jake left everyone and everything behind in hopes of saving Eve from his demons. His one regret was breaking her heart.
From the moment they reconnect, it is clear to Eve the passion, brilliance, and determination that first attracted her to Jake are stronger than ever. So strong that fighting their pull seems useless. But falling back in love isn’t as easy as letting the walls down. Eve soon realizes the choices they’ve both made come with consequences. Ones that will test how deep her love runs for a man living with a storm inside.

Honestly, I expected so much more from this book. From the first moment I was presented with the opportunity to read, I knew I wanted to. That is why I signed up for the tour. Sadly, I was a bit disappointed.
The book is well written and the writing style makes it easy to read and to enjoy. I liked the main idea of the plot, but I felt like it was not truly developed. The book contains an enormous number of sex scenes. I would have preferred to see how the characters solve their problems, all their problems and work things out so they could start over and have a healthy relationship.
Despite what I mentioned above, I liked the characters and the few moments we got to enjoy them interact with others and work on their relationship. I admire Eve for being so adventurous, but at some point I believe she crossed a line. There are places and places… Jake seemed like an interesting character, but I got the feeling that he was hiding something. There is more to his story than we learn in this book, a least that was my impression. I felt like it was so sudden that he returned. What exactly did he do during those ten years he’s been away? He tells us some things, but there has to be more. Ten years is a long time.
Overall, I lied the story, the characters, the book is okay, but I would not read it again even though I do not regret reading it in the first place. I would read a sequel if there were one.
