"I want to kiss you so much. I want to show you what a beautiful woman you are. I want to appreciate you for you but I don't want to add more pain to your life. Tell me what you want, Anika."
Wow! This was an amazing book! Fantastic start to The Leaves series! Amazing well rounded characters, a difficult but beautiful story line, and I could not set this book down for the life of me. There was a cliffhanger at the end, so make sure you have COLE, The Leaves, book 2 on hand, because you will want to jump right to the next story as soon as possible. This was my first read from J.B. Hartnett and it will definitely not be the last.
