After breaking up with her long time boyfriend, Jackson DeLacey, eighteen-year-old Zara Borzilleri promises herself to focus on school and play the game she loves. Stepping foot onto the lacrosse field, in front of a cheering crowd, pushes aside the pain and reminds her of the future ahead at least until she graduates in four years.
Lacrosse star Treston 'The King' Parker dominates the field and to everyone else he has it all. Behind closed doors he's just Treston Parker- a monster full of secrets, deep, dark secrets only he knows. He won't allow anyone to get close and for the past two years he's kept his promises to her, but never his last promise: falling in love again.
One weekend he gives in and everything changes when he meets Zara. The rules change and she sees Treston for who he truly is, not what everyone else sees. But to Treston, meeting Zara means nothing, even though her blue eyes invades his mind.
We can be friends, but don't ask about my past or where I go.
He draws the lines.
She erases his lines.
Can Zara help Treston escape his painful past before he sinks deeper into oblivion?

I once knew what love was. It was the best feeling, knowing someone cared about you and you cared about them. Then again, love can be taken away from you like that. In the blink of an eye, your whole life changes. Some people can survive, but not me. You don’t survive the heartbreak I’ve been through. You can’t. The way she made me feel, the way she kissed me and lit my body aflame, no other woman could do that. Nothing would ever be okay and since the day I lost her, I’ve been on auto pilot. I go through the motions of school, the game I love, home, parties and errands, but nothing feels real anymore.
Though talking to and hanging out with Zara is okay for me. She’s not someone I want to avoid.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
S moose is a new author to me and after this book I will be purchasing her other books too. It wasn't quite a 5* for me as there was to much up and down for that but it was still a great read and well worth 4*s.
When Treston and Zara first meet there's this instant connection that you as a reader feel too. Zara's just broke up with her boyfriend so tries to deny her feelings for Treston at first. Treston's your typical man whore who uses girls for sex and that's all. When he meets Zara he wants her but his stubbornness and secrets cause a lot of conflict (bit to much for my personal liking) Question is will Zara still be there when Treston realises and will Treston divulge his secrets.
I loved this was a great read apart from the constant conflict was a bit hard to keep reading at times but apart from that it was a perfect read.
