Omg omg Sam has outdone herself here. I love sams books she does emotional, angst in the best way and raw love and well we totally got her best here... I am not joking when I say I haven't been reading a great amount recently that said once I started this I couldn't stop until I finished, it was delicious and unputtadownable..
So what's it about?
Daisy has spent the last 18 months paying her time in prison for a crime is didn't commit. She lost her little brother Jesse and everything she had and was now she's out its time to get her family back. So she gets a job as a maid on an estate with the one and only 'Kas'....
Kas Kas Kas is a lovable asshole. Kas-hole he has given Daisy a job, a mindless job but a job is a job and she is a hard worker. But Kas-hole has that name because he isn't nice to Daisy at the beginning, there is definitely a love/hate thing going on here. Thing is Daisy is gorgeous and Kas is HAWT with lots of angry tension so ummmm that equals to lots of arguments that yes I wanted them to get together.... butttt Daisy is doing all this for her family she needs to keep Jesse, she needs to get him back. She needs to gain the respect of everyone who's important around her. So she's 'trying' to be professional in the best way...
Gah what I loved about this without giving anything away is the way Samantha pulled at my heart. It felt so real while reading the 30% mark, the 60% and the 90% mark there are certain parts that had me in floods of tears. There was moments of angst, moments of emotional pain. Moments of lust and down right sexyness. Yet there was true LOVE throughout the story. This book was a story about two broken half's that made a whole. And I'll be holding these characters close to my heart for a good while.
There was a good plot integrated into this love story, and I'll tell you that Sam put this story together so very well. It's different that anything she's written before. I cannot tell you anymore but it was brave for her yet she pulled it off soooo very well.. omg I have tears just thinking about it. I am surely involved in both characters and their outcomes. I loved every page and word that was poured into this book. And if nothing else it'll make you feel...
Read it people. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
