NOTICE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

It will haunt me. It will claim me. It will shatter me. And I don't care.

Faith Watters has a picture-perfect life. She's captain of the dance team, popular, happy. She even spent her junior year traveling the world before returning to Oviedo High School for senior year. But she's living a lie.

Diego Alvarez hates his new life in the States, but staying in Cuba is not an option. Covered in tattoos and scars, Diego doesn't stand a chance of fitting in, and doesn't want to. His only concern is his secret past--a past, which if it were to surface, would cost him his life.

Everyone knows that Faith and Diego don't belong together. But fate has its own plan. All they want is to be free. What they get is something different entirely.

Love--it will ruin you. . .and save you.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Diego and Faith. There are tons of books about guys from "the wrong side of the tracks" but this one has meat. The author writes with grit, heat, compassion, and love. I was sucked in straight from the start and emotional all the way through. It was a roller coaster ride I didn't want to get off of.

Both lead characters are 3-dimensional plus! Faith works very hard to maintain a good-girl image. She's a pastor's daughter with a shady past no one knows about. It's interesting to watch her mask fade away as she lets Diego into her world.

Diego, on the other hand, is pretty up front about who he is, besides one tiny "little" secret. He's rough and smooth and isn't afraid of anything. Mix that with Faith who's afraid of everything and you'll either get a train wreck or a lasting love. Read the book to find out!
