Tiernan de Haas doesn’t care about anything anymore. The only child of a film producer and his starlet wife, she’s grown up with wealth and privilege but not love or guidance. Shipped off to boarding schools from an early age, it was still impossible to escape the loneliness and carve out a life of her own. The shadow of her parents’ fame followed her everywhere.

And when they suddenly pass away, she knows she should be devastated. But has anything really changed? She’s always been alone, hasn’t she?

Jake Van der Berg, her father’s stepbrother and her only living relative, assumes guardianship of Tiernan who is still two months shy of eighteen. Sent to live with him and his two sons, Noah and Kaleb, in the mountains of Colorado, Tiernan soon learns that these men now have a say in what she chooses to care and not care about anymore. As the three of them take her under their wing, teach her to work and survive in the remote woods far away from the rest of the world, she slowly finds her place among them.

And as a part of them.

She also realizes that lines blur and rules become easy to break when no one else is watching.

One of them has her.

The other one wants her.

But he…

He’s going to keep her.

Review: To be honest, I really had no idea what I was getting into with this book and it’s hard to describe without giving things away! All I will say is that this story was deep, dark, suspenseful, romantic, and unique. It’s about a girl who never had anyone who suddenly has to discover who she is and let down the walls she’s built to protect herself. This is a romance, but it’s also about healing, family, and forgiveness. If you’re looking for the perfect angsty read, you need to check this one out! Lastly, keep an open mind when reading this story because it’s definitely different.
