Can love save them?

After her father commits a crime that shatters her family, eighteen-year-old Delaney Cross is tired of pretending everything is all right. Packing up her car, she sets out to find the people her father hurt. Her search leads her to places she’s never been—and into the arms of Adrian Westfall.

To the outside world, Adrian is a sexy, charming ladies’ man. But his playboy persona is just an act. Secretly his soul is tortured by a memory too painful to share. Only Delaney seems to see through his fa├žade to the real man underneath. And for the first time in his life, Adrian feels he can begin to open up about his past.

Together, Adrian and Delaney share a passionate love they never expected to find. Yet both still harbor their own secrets. When the dark truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together—or tear them apart forever? (thanks to GoodReads for the summary)

My thoughts-
Great story. I think the story is captivating and passionate. It is written well and is an easy read. The plot has depth and draws you into this set of character's lives so completely. I see that this is book #2 in a series, but I never felt I was missing anything relevant to this story - and I really thought that was great.

Laney and Maddox have taken on heavy burdens and are finally being weighed down too much by them. They really got screwed in the parent department, but they're doing their best to stay together and survive.

Adrian and Laney are just meant to be together in this story, but only after the truth is revealed and they forgive themselves. Adrian had a crappy go in the story as well. He lost the most precious thing a person could and really didn't know how to handle it, so he ran away and turned to drugs. That all changed when he met Delaney.

I liked all of the characters and thought this was an excellent story. Maybe more form this series?
