Cole St. Clair has come to California for one reason: to get Isabel Culpeper back. She fled from his damaged, drained life, and damaged and drained it even more. He doesn't just want her. He needs her.
Isabel is trying to build herself a life in Los Angeles. It's not really working. She can play the game as well as all the other fakes...but what's the point? What is there to win?
Cole and Isabel share a past that never seemed to have a future. They have the power to save each other and the power to tear each other apart. The only thing for certain is that they cannot let go."
My Rambles: I miss Sam and Grace. I know they had their "happy ending" and now it's time for Isabel and Cole to get their shit straight. Oddly enough, Leon is my favorite character for no reason lol. I know Isabel is "supposed" to be the mean person but she goes too hard on Sofia for no reason. I'm glad she got nicer at the end but still. Child is a cinnamon role. I feel bad for the two, so broken and fighting against it. I do greatly enjoy Maggie's writing, how concise she can get and transfer large amounts of emotion through a few words and formatting. Its a fantastic companion novel and wrapped up things I didn't entirely realize I wanted to know. I still think Isabel needs to actually use therapy as its intended, she needs the help processing her world.
