Nathan Thorne has a past of his own. On the surface he is loved by all, personable, extroverted; everything Delilah isn’t. Hidden beneath is a dark and tormented man that only Delilah has to power to unveil.
Crammed in a small office together they see through each other’s masks, and the draw becomes too much, igniting an explosive relationship. Holloway and Holloway Law has a strict non-fraternization policy, forcing them to conceal their breach. Despite their efforts, separation becomes impossible, deceptions escalate, and Nathan has trouble coping; teetering on the edge of being overtaken by his past demons.
What secrets does he harbor that could keep him from giving in? What keeps him from healing and moving forward? And Delilah, where does she fit into all this turmoil?
Can they accept love and deal with all the trials that come their way when secrets are exposed? Or will they fall through the cracks of their pasts and be consumed by all that haunts them
Well Nathan sure knows how to talk dirty. Not sure if I would appreciate to be called a slut during sex but hell.
What is this story about
The story is written in Delilah or Lila's point of view. Lila is 29 years old and she is a lawyer. Lila has a really messed up past which left her with a really negative image about herself. She is convinced that she is worthless, ugly, that she is nothing. And that's really sad to read about because I know how that can feel and how much you can hurt yourself by thinking that. And I thing Lila is amazing. It is really hard to become a lawyer, so that's something she should be proud of.
Well in the beginning of the story Lila meets new co-worker Nathen. She and nathen have a hate/bitching/sassing/ banter/ but are attracted to each other relationship. Nathen is a hardworking hot guy but due something that happened in his past, build up some big walls around himself. Lila sees right threw it, like Nathan sees threw hers.
Lila really dislikes nathan in the beginning. She things he is an asshole. I really didn't see why so that left me thinking oh noo will it be this kind of book again. But no, no, no no, it really isn't
This book is really about two people, that had really bad things happen o them in the past and there learning to move forward. They really need each other for that. To bad the company lila and Nathan work allow no relationship what so ever among the employees. Luckily Nathan and lila work past this rule and keep there relationship a secret. But will there secrets and past catch up with them and break them apart or will they stick together.
What did I love about this story
I didn't think I would love this story when I first started reading it. I thought noo will it be like the main female hates the male ( for no danm reason, at least I didn't see it) and then fall in love but doesn't acknowledge it but the main male convince her otherwise and they will be together the end. But the story didn't go like that. Not exactly. Yes they fell in love but they also grew together.
They really helped each other out with moving past there secrets and horrible past. But they have some massive problems and those problems could prevent them from truly being together.
I loved the secrets and horrible past. I know that sound horrible but that made the story more interesting. And I love seeing how Lila works past her insecurity and bad self-image. And I really like that there not perfect, there far from perfect but there imperfections work together. Sort of.
