“You start out with the best of intentions, but inevitably you hurt each other. I love you, but that didn’t stop me from hurting you last night, or this morning. Love sucks. It’s just the way it is.”
Falling in love is easy. But what happens when that love has been tossed aside and trampled on by the person who swore to cherish it? Can you ever trust again, or will the bitter taste of betrayal keep you from allowing anyone else in?
Carter and Elizabeth come with their own baggage. Both have had their hearts broken and carry the scars of the past into their relationship with each other. Is love ever enough? Can it overcome?
By allowing the wrong person into her heart Elizabeth only knew of love tainted with secrets and lies. Can Carter convince her he wants the whole package, heart, body and soul? As Carter attempts to faces his past with Elizabeth by his side, it continues to haunt him at every turn. Can he let go and believe in her enough to leave his past behind him, or will he push too hard and send her running into another man’s arms?
Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge fan of Danielle Sibarium. Don’t even get me started on how much I love her Heart Wave series. So when she asked me to read Into You I jumped at the chance. I was not disappointed. from the minute I met Elizabeth and Carter I was hooked. Both of them meet at time they are trying to deal with betrayal in their past.
The story is told through Elizabeth and Carter’s POV. Elizabeth is a strong character, which I love. She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t. Elizabeth is not afraid to state her mind and fight for what she thinks is right. I love that she didn’t just give in to Carter and actually made him work for her attention. She is the perfect woman for him, because she knows how to love him without judgement. Her past makes it hard for her to trust, but also makes it possible for her to love with all her heart.
Then there is Carter. Can we all say sexy. He has trust issues, but after what he’s been through who can blame him. The horrid betrayal he’s been through has left him broken and at times cold and hotheaded . Through Carter’s choice of career you can see the amazing man hiding through the pain. Elizabeth comes into his life at the perfect time. It’s nice to watch Carter grow through the book and be able to admit when he’s wrong.
Now can we talk about how hot this book is? There were times I even found myself blushing. Carter and Elizabeth have a chemistry that oozes through the pages. They have a hard time keeping their hands off each other, which trust me is a good thing. Together they learn to love again, but most of all how to trust. Their love is hot, but it’s also sweet. I just loved them together.
Danielle Sibarium has an amazing talent of writing characters that stay with you even weeks after you finish the book. She writes a love story like no other and you will stay up late flipping through the pages and falling in love. I am counting down the days for next book to come out.
