Little ConversationEighteen-year-old Devin McKay is a complete and total emotional wreck. Fresh out of high school and on her own for the first time in her life, she's reeling from rejection of a relationship gone very, very bad. Emotionally battered and tormented by the pull of her narcissistic first love, she wants to make a clean break in a small mountain town where he is everywhere—with his new girlfriend.

Ronin Andrews is still battling his own cataclysmic ghosts. He recoils from anything heartfelt, choosing instead to work hard and live wild. Outside of his job, parties and causal hooks-ups are his life until Devin walks in. With her short skirt and her sad green eyes, he can't help but want her… badly. His protective streak wants to provide her with a haven, to shelter and sustain her.

Through a flash of torrid intensity, they struggle to be friends… just friends. She relies on him to nourish her shattered soul and shield her heart from the clawing, gnawing loss that has consumed her. Before long, the attraction proves too tenacious, and the passion between them becomes undeniable. But will the shadows of the past prove too much to overcome?

The Review

I really enjoyed this book, It the journey of a young girl finding herself. Devin struggles with a brake up making her fragile and vulnerable, constantly retreating back to what she feels comfortable with rather than fighting the heart ache. This book was recommended and gifted to me by one of my amazing fan's Michelle Campbell who truly fell in love with it. I have to say that I did enjoy the book however it just didn't leap out and smack me in the face, maybe it's just something I'm not used to reading not enough ugly cry moments LOL.

Devin feels "real" through out the story. Devin's character stays true to herself and the way in which she acts and responds through out the story is that that you would expect from a 18 year old girl going through the break up of her first love. She doesn't do what most characters do and jump straight in to the sack with someone else she stays true to herself and fights her feelings for a good portion of the story.

I have to say Ronin is an "Angel" in disguise fighting for Devin wanting to make her realize the power that Jake holds over her. He finds himself falling deeply for her and trying the biggest sacrifice by pushing her away to what he thinks she truly wants.

I went through this book been angry and frustrated wanting to throw my I-pad at a wall when she kept feeling so strongly for Jake and then when Kim came on the scene i felt like giving Ronin a black eye! Damn blonde dirty ho! The only thing I didn't get which I so desperately wanted was that ugly cry moment.

This book is a wonderful journey about Devin finding herself. Sibylla Matilde does a wonderful job with this story; it is not overpowered with sexual scenes but has bundles of sexual chemistry and some pretty steamy scenes. One of my pet hates was not evident through out the entire book too "TYPO'S", these truly put me off but there is none in this book.

I would like to thank Michelle for gifting this book to me and making me read it because it is refreshing to read a story where the characters stick to something that feels "real". I would also like to thank Sibylla Matilde for a well written novel and an amazing ending to a well written novel! I would most defiantly recommend this book to you it is very refreshing and make a change from all the heat.

Before I go here is a quick quote from the book for me to end on. "Her misgivings kept her silent as her fingers spoke of love, worshiping the skin they touched the skin they touched. Her eyes memorizing every detail. Their lips so close that they breathed the same air. He brushed the wetness from her eyes as the world around them began to come into focus."
