I’m Harlow Evans. Shortly after my parents were murdered I moved in with my Grandma.
It meant switching schools, losing friends, and moving away from the only home I knew. All I wanted was to finish the school year hassle free.

Switching seats on that first day altered my life. After surviving the loss of my parents I never thought anything could break me, but then HE came into my life….

He wants to hurt me
Destroy me
Ruin me

Tragedy brought me here, and a cruel twist of fate has me desperate to leave. There’s also someone here that has me fighting to stay though.

All my life I’ve lived in the shadows, trying to go unnoticed, until I met HIM….

Malik Carter….

He’s broody, quiet, and holding on to a dark past. From that first meeting I was drawn to him, his painfully gorgeous looks and model physique, but I also knew he was totally out of my league.

He’s the boy next door who, with his domineering personality, has somehow etched his way into my life.

When the Carter Brothers take it upon themselves to protect me from what’s coming, I’m not sure whether to be relieved or shocked.

You see, when a Carter brother loves, they love fiercely, strongly and protectively. No one can get in their way. They’re also used to getting what they want, even if it means getting hurt.

There’s one thing you should know about the Carter brothers before you read my story….
If you mess with one, you mess with them all.


My Review

5 Stars

This is the first book by Lisa Helen Gray and it was so good!!! Harlow and Malik are not your average teens. They have faced more tragedy and heartache in their short lives than most adults do in their longer ones. They are both hurting and have a connection they can’t deny.

Harlow has to move her senior year of high school to live with someone she has only seen 3 times in her life and all three times was when she was a baby. She also has to start a new school well into the year. Her last school wasn’t very good to her she was bullied. She’s very nervous.  All the apprehension she had was warranted.

Malik has had a rough life. He lives with his grandfather and his 4 other brothers. Malik along with his brothers are very protective of their family. Malik is big, broad and sexy. He is a protector and a dominant alpha male.

This story will pull at your heart. It is heartbreaking. Make sure you grab some Kleenex before you start because you will need it. But as you read through it you will also laugh.

“….Then, to top that shit list, I see my very first penis, a very f*@king frightening one for the first time. They’re big Malik. F*@king big”

The banter with all the brothers, Harlow, Harlow’s gram, and Denny just makes this book even more amazing. This book has so many amazing things about it. Hurry and one click this book. I can’t wait to read Mason the next book in the series. Great job Lisa I look forward to reading what you have coming next.

Received this book in exchange for an honest review.
