When you’ve lived your life as a criminal…When you’ve done unspeakably evil things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…
The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.
Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.
Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.
When Kyle’s secretive past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness finally extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?

“If you knew who I was, you’d despise me".
I love it when an author takes her readers on a storytelling journey that leaves them with the strong urge to want to throw themselves into that very same storyline and just be a part of everything. From the setting, to these unforgettable characters, you find yourself wishing that you could be one of the best friends to anyone of these characters. That’s what Sawyer Bennett brought to the table with this story and through her words, we saw two of the most unlikely people, form an everlasting bond while healing each other.
Kyle Somerville has been deep undercover for the past several years. His soul has been tainted, and he’s seen and done things no amount of alcohol can take away. When his work finally pays off bringing down one of the biggest MC, he has no choice but to go into hiding on his own after refusing the witness protection program. Now living in Misty Harbor Maine, Kyle is determined to lay low and keep to himself. That would be an amazing plan, if it wasn’t for the cheery neighbor who refuses to leave him alone and is determined to get to know the new guy in town.
“I see a man who wants something for himself but is too afraid to take it. He’s afraid of failure. So I throw my shoulders back, determination forging my spine into steel, and I vow to myself I’m going to get through those walls he just put up around himself, no matter what it takes".
Jane has always been a simple girl. Her love of painting and teaching it to her students has always been the highlight of her days and she wouldn’t have it any other way. When she notices she has a new neighbor, her friendly demeanor has no choice but to come out and embark on the new man. But Kyle wants no part of her friendship and telling that to Jane is like telling a two year old, they can’t have candy. It’s not going to work. With Jane’s refusal to give up on their future friendship, Kyle is starting to realizing that this woman is going to cause an huge impact in his quiet little world.
I loved seeing the buildup between Jane and Kyle’s friendship and their unspoken sexual intensity. Kyle’s refusal to take their friendship had me wanting to smack him for a good minute but lucky for him, he redeemed himself and my palms were safe. I liked that Jane was this quirky character who made Kyle see things differently without it ever being forced and she was never annoying in her antics to become his friend. These two were absolutely perfect our each other and I’m glad I got to experience their story.
If you love a hot friends to lovers story, then you should definitely read this one.
