A tragically beautiful story.
Allison, a young woman who is struggling to find a way to avenge her childhood best friend Samantha. Decides to change who she is to accomplish this. She goes to college and acts like a girl who sleeps around and doesn’t care what others think of her. She is estranged from her mother and has no one left to confide in. She meets the guys on the rugby team at college and one boy stands out to her when they meet.
Dean, a young man who is struggling with past issues and anger management. He is at college due to a benefactor who wanted to help him out of a tough situation. A friend of his uncles, offered to send him to college, a classmate, Kevin, is the benefactors son. Dean is not the type of guy who wants to fit into the college boy mold, he plays rugby for the physical release he gets when he is playing. He’s never been the type of guy who commits in a relationship. When he meets Allison, his whole world is turned upside down, completely.
Kevin is the son of a rich man who is powerful and has money to keep his son out of trouble when he finds it, a party boy. This has given Kevin the attitude that he is above everyone and everything and he can always have what he wants no matter the cost or consequences to his actions.
The past for all three of these people will come back to haunt them in the worst way possible. It will even cost lives. The love that comes out of this story is beautiful, but the lives that these three have lived are the tragedy in this story. This story is about a very touchy subject and it is very pertinent to what is going on in the world at this time. Ms. Winters did a great job with the story and the path that she took to tell the story was very heart wrenching, but well written. I give this story a 5 star rating and I look forward to reading more about the characters in the near future.
