A new unforgettable romance by K.M. Scott, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Heart of Stone and Club X Series!
If I dream, will you dare?
All I wanted was my freedom. It's all I'd dreamed of from the first time I stood in the ring. Until I entered Robert Erickson's world. Until Serena. Cruelty and ugliness surrounded me, but she was beautiful and good. I wanted to protect her from her father's world, even though I knew being with her could mean the end of me.
I wanted for nothing as the daughter of one of the richest men in the world. But all my father's money couldn't buy what I truly craved. Until Ryder. I wanted all he was, all he brought out in me. All he made me desire.
Our love was forbidden by the one person who had the power to harm us. We dreamed of more than living in that world, though. We dreamed of having it all, but did we dare?
This was my first book by K.M. Scott and it won’t be my last. I really enjoyed her writing style. It flowed extremely well, making it very easy to read in one sitting. Which I did.
Ryder has been fighting for his life since he was fifteen. He has not had a good life and he’s fighting to survive. When a man shows up to one of his street fights, everything changes. He now lives in a big house and he’s well taken care of. As he becomes the man’s new prized fighter, something shifts and Ryder is taken under the man’s wings. The one thing that is off limits to Ryder turns out to be the one thing that he can’t live without.
Serena has been living under her Father’s tight rule all her life. Desperately wanting her Mother back and the affections of her Father, Serena becomes fascinated with the new guy that shows up in her house. As time moves on, the two can’t seem to stay away from each other. Their love is forbidden and has to be hidden. Will these two ever be able to be together or is Serena’s life planned out for her and she must follow through with it, ending them forever?
One of the things I like the most about this story is how much Serena wants to be her own person. While her Father has plans for her, she fights to try to remain the person that she wants to be. Her struggles are real and sometimes raw but it’s honest and a battle that makes you want her to overcome. I also like how soft Ryder is with her. He doesn’t hide his feelings and he does everything he can to show her how much he loves her.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and I look forward to seeing what happens next with Ryder and Serena. If you are looking for a forbidden/hidden love story with some real struggles that might just make you want to throw your kindle a few times, then this is the book for you.
