thought it s story about Cameron and Emily turns out it s her story finding out how her brother died and why Emmy and her brother bill are rich kids, bill was a bad boy, got himself into lots of trouble, selling drugs in private school to rich kids like him and cameron was his parter, After bill died was killed Cameron took his sister as captive to protect her i don t know from what or who, probably bill s enemies , cameron took emmy to his house, people who worked for him treated her poorly for a simple reason, they did not trust her or trust cameron with her, they knew she comes from money so when shit goes down she will be protected unlike them i liked the plot but i lost my interest in the story, it was slow builduing romance Frankly some passages were boring , Kid Rocco was probably the most annoying character i wanted to smash his head with a hammer, Spider arghhhh just the name and the tattoos make me sick , but i found Carly and griff to be likeable characters Whoever

nothing you can do about itWhy did the story have to end thereWHYOK, so this is all actually totally my fault I knew what the ending was and that it was a horrible cliffhanger before I started reading this but it still punched me in the gut Dear lord sniffle Frustrated by her shallow, controlling and uncaring filthy rich parents, Emily just wants to be out on her own Her brother died a few years ago drug overdose and so she leaves her family refusing to take their money to strike out on her own, living near the cemetery where he is buried She keeps running into this guy near the cemetery who tried warning her to stay away, to move away, but of course she doesn t listen and at the same time is very intrigued by himThere was no doubt in my mind that this boy was odd and beautiful a dangerous combination Something about his guardedness, something about the way others in the projects had looked at his with fear, made me think I should probably run the other way next time and concentrate on not thinking about him One day, while out on a run, she gets caught in the rain and, while taking shelter in the cemetery witnesses a brutal murder committed by the guy she kept running into and passes out When she wakes up, she is thrown into a world she never expected to know filled with drug lords, gangs, hideouts, territory wars, and secrets about her brother and the life he was really involved in She is held captive in a house in the country but finds herself falling in love with Cameron, the guy from the cemetery who had been watching her, who committed the brutal crime, who kidnapped her and is apparently just trying to keep her safe and also falling in love with her But in that world, happily ever afters don t come too easilyHow long are you going to keep me here I drowsily continued.Cameron pulled the glass out of my numbed hands and set it on the table next to me For as long as it takes And what are you going to do with me This came out as a whisper My eyes were barely slit open.Cameron paused on this question He scanned my face, like the answer was written somewhere between the freckles I don t know First off, I should say that I went into this book expecting it to be quite dark, but it really wasn t I was pretty surprised by that I mean, the subject matter is serious, but even though she is held captive, its in a fully furnished house, she is allowed a lot of freedom to go around the grounds as she pleases, talk to anyone, swim in the pool with everyone, make dinner etc its not like its a dark and twisty kidnapping not that I m justifying it or anything, it just wasn t quite what I thought it would be and the bad guys aren t evil or mean or cruel they are just involved in some shady business.This book really blurs the line between right and wrong What if a good person did something technically wrong but for the right reasons and in a situation where it was, in many ways, the only solution Does that make them a bad person Can you still fall in love with them Can a relationship in a world where that life is necessary work From the start of the book, Cameron was a total mystery He seemed to be always fighting against himself On the outside, he seemed cold and harsh, but pieces of his softer, caring personality kept peeking through revealing his true nature and drawing the line between the person he wanted to be and the person his position made him have to be.I ll admit it, I got Stockholm Syndrome I totally fell in love with him and despite their less than ideal circomstances, I could really see a solution where things worked out for them and then the ending aaarrrgh WHY grumbles about noble idiotsEverything was different between Cameron and me What I felt wasn t just mind games or some fabricated syndrome What I felt for him, I had seen him, felt him feel for me too I was sure of thisEmily and Cameron very much have a forbidden love In his world, loved ones are liabilities and almost always get hurt or killed And theshe learns about him, theshe begins to understand his world and why he is involved in itYou ll probably die if you stay with me, he told me Then I m dead either way, because I won t survive without youThere were, however, several discrepancies in the book that make me squint at it skeptically but overall the story was good and so I was able to make myself accept them as part of the world But don t read too deeply into the details If you think about them too hard, a lot of the stuff that happens especially in the first 60% can be a little unbelievable or questionable I had a lot of moments where I kind of just shook my head, put away my thoughts on the matter and just accepted what I read in order to not take myself away from the story line Unfortunately though, I can t really talk about them without giving spoilers And I kind of wavered back and forth on how much they bothered me but then, I had to put the book down while I went to work and found myself thinking about it all day and realized that despite all that, I was really sucked into the story and the fact that it made me care about the characters like that was definitely a good sign But I d say that that was the primary reason for not rating the book higher Well, that and also I would have wantedsteam The love scenes were very tame, even for a YA book 100% fade to black The most we saw was a kiss I wantedThe story was actually relatively light until about 65% and then there were a series of twists I didn t see coming and the ending had me in serious emotional knots although, I didn t get misty eyes or cry throughout the whole book That being said, its not an anti HEA ending it definitely leaves room for things to work out in a swoony HEA in the sequel, but for now ARRRRGHHHHH I checked on Julie Hockley s website and she has confirmed that she is in the middle of writing the sequel she s only a few chapters in but thankfully, its in the works I m definitely looking forward toof Cameron and Emily s story I d definitely recommend it for fans of Sempre the two books had a very similar feeling to them but Sempre hadsteam Here s my version of Cameron and EmilyPLEASE NOTE My review is

autora es muy sencilla La historia avanza a buen ritmo, los secretos y misterios te enganchan, por lo que no puedes dejar de leer Si es la cl sica historia de la chica buena y el chico malo, mezclada con un poco de s ndrome de Estocolmo.Historia que si te permites profundizar y leer entre l neas, te dar s cuenta lo hermoso y triste que este libro llega a ser Critica la siempre presente separaci n de clases sociales, y nos muestra que ninguna de las dos es mejor o mas sencilla que la otra, que ya sea que se viva en una mansi n o en las calles, el infierno que se vive en ambas es parecido EMILYThe problem is normal was nt in my DNA I was destined to be forever freakishNuestra protagonista creci llena de lujos, pero tambi n de soledad, superficialidad, e infelicidad Tanto que Emily prefiere renunciar a todo e irse a vivir lejos del dinero y control de sus padres Estudia en una peque a Universidad, vive en un diminuto cuarto, que paga con su trabajo en la biblioteca, y donde le es f cil visitar diariamente la tumba de su hermano Bill La nica persona en el mundo que la amo y se preocup por ella CAMERONHe had been a real person whom I loved and who had, inexplicably, loved meMi amor por Cameron es inmenso y especial, primero porque fue mi primer book boyfriend mafioso, y segundo por su personalidad Es un chico malo, pero NO del tipo pat n mujeriego, l es realmente malo, me refiero a que es un narcotraficante, asesino a sangre fr a Pero no es de los criminales que disfruta lo que hacen, sus acciones han sido simplemente para sobrevivir.Ese es el principal mensaje de este libro, la manera en la que la sociedad moderna ve a los ni os que viven en los barrios pobres, en vez de ayudarlos se les juzga de algo que a n no han hecho, pero que al no tener otra opci n terminan siendo criminales.Obviamente la historia de amor es el principal eje de la historia, la cual se desarrolla a buen ritmo, no es amor a primera vista, es hermoso ver a Cameron un hombre que vive en la obscuridad del mundo criminal, pero que cuando interact a con Emily deja salir esa otra parte de s mismo, esa parte donde no tiene que ser el peligroso jefe de la mafia, en la que solo es un joven conociendo a una chica.A pesar de ser una historia tan intensa, el personaje de Rocco el hermano menor de Cameron nutre la historia con su humor involuntario, la relaci n que lleva con Emily es muy linda y dulce view spoiler La muerte de Rocco fue la primera vez que derrame lagrimas por un personaje de un libro hide spoiler En conclusi n Amo este libro, y aunque odio la espera para poder

brother who passed away because of overdose and for the man in gray sweater She was kidnapped by Cameron, who is a drug lord for witnessing a brutal crime and also keeping her for safety reasons As she spends time with him and his crew, she learns everything about the drug business and also about his life She somewhat feels safe around him and can t help being drawn to him Eventually, she falls in love with her captor Still, it s a question mark because they both live in different worlds and being together is risky The story isn t that dark and graphic mild violence, mild steamy scenes still romantic though , the twists and turns are so good and there are lots of revelations that will keep you reading this book They re so good For the love of crime mob bosses, I love Cameron to bits The romance between Emily and Cameron is so good and I love the development What made my jaw dropped was the ending It took me minutes to recover on that Gonna read the next book is ASAP Final rating 4.5

CANNOT wait for the sequel The end was just GREAT but I had some issues with the story Let s start Emily is a lost soul She s 19 years old and she is in college She lost her brother a few years ago and since then her life changed She is not a conventional heroine, she is lost, she s shy and she refuses all the money that comes from her rich family She is living in a horrible place close to her college and to her brother s cemetery so she runs every day there to visit him.One of those days she cross paths with a mysterious guy who is apparently walking his dog That lovely dog breaks Emily s ancient Walkman seriously, do they exist any and Emily s life changes from that exact moment.A few days later that same mysterious guy and his mates kidnap Emily and I couldn t understand why she didn t try to escape I mean, she NEVER tried to escape from them, I just didn t get it As Jessica told me, that was probably because her life sucked.Cameron, the mysterious guy, asks his kid brother, Rocco one of my fave characters in the book to take Emily to the farm and Emily instantly thinks they are going to kill her so she tries to establish a relationship with Rocco and get some time before he kills her I loved this part in the car What s your name You can call me Sexy Bull OMG, I love Rocco That is all Somehow she discovers what Cameron and his mates do, they sell drugs and they kill people And this was the biggest issue for me in this book I mean, I wanted to love Cameron but OMG, what he does is SOOOOOOO FREAKING WRONG I understand he had a complicated life but COME ON I can t never ever agree with that, I could never EVER fall in love with someone who sells drugs I would say Emily is kinda happy that she s been kidnapped She doesn t like to be alone at home but she is always with Rocco or Griff, one of the guards of the farm I also loved Griff He was always taking care of Emily.The rest of the members are just ok for her Carly doesn t seem to like Emily at the beginning but she is a great person She didn t have a good life tho and she s just trying to save her family for the horrible world she is living in And then, Spider well I guess I cannot talk a lot about him without spoilers so I better shut up Am I that much of a threat to you More than you know Days go by and Emily s feelings for Cameron are growing She likes him, there is something special about him and he cares for her but he also avoids her sometimes so she is confused.He was sooooooo sweet sometimes but so hard another times but I guess I understand him now, he wanted to protect her over all things I don t want to spoil anything but let me tell you that his feelings for her started A LONG TIME AGO view spoiler Em s brother was Cameron s boss a few years back and before he died he asked Cameron to look after Emily so Cameron has spent part of his life watching her and falling in love with her somehow hide spoiler Is this okay Ok, at this point I must say that the author was building a GREAT chemistry between them but I missed my butterflies when they kissed, not to mention when they did the other thing I mean, as my buddy Candace would say, you know when you are watching a movie and they kiss but the camera goes to the window and suddenly is the next day Yeah, that s how this felt for me and I didn t like it I know this is not erotica but come on I needed a little bit of MAMBO between them.And now that I m bitching, let me say that I really don t like most of these virgin heroines I liked Emmy but why oh why do they need to be that innocent That is just NOT real She was asking him if he had had sex with other girls without being in love with them Come on Emmy He s 26, of course he had had sex with random girls, he s just a man But then when he was explaining to her WHY he was having sex with other girls I just wanted to yell at my kindle That s BULLSHIT This is just a reflection but I need to say this I want to read about REAL CHARACTERS, that s why I don t real PNR And sometimes some heroes and heroines make me think I m reading PNR Ok, I want to read about perfect guys and all but I also want to read about REAL people.Sorry for bitching, I just couldn t help it You and I are just too different Ok, I ll just stop talking about the book now because I don t want to spoil anything I was very intrigued at the beginning, then I thought I couldn t like someone like Cameron but then the end was just absolutely FANTASTIC I would have deleted the epilogue, it could beinteresting but I guess the author had her reasons to give us some information about what was going to happen next I knew it couldn t end that way.Would I recommend this book Yes, BUT and this is a big BUT you should know what you are getting yourself into Those guys sell drugs and kill people, no matter what their reason is, that s wrong in soooooo many ways Anyway I will read book 2, I want to know MORE about them, I need to know what happens, I need to know if they are going to be able to redeem their sins and I find this pretty difficult.Whoever said that love hurts was wrong Love is excruciating, specially when you can fell it slipping through your fingers and

and the guy is mad with you because you don t belong there A dog who we later learn jumps to the guy s every command so really he had the power to stop his dog he just chose not to He should have just shouted The dog does everything he says Despite this he buys you an ipod for gods sake, which makes zero sense because he told you not to go backbut he bought you something and waited for you What Don t be Stuuuupid From then on you are inexplicably obsessed with him EVEN WHEN HE KIDNAPS YOU AFTER YOU WATCHED HIM KILL SOMEBODY this is the only interaction so far, in fact you learn the tiny detail of HIS NAME during the murder Yet when he has stolen you, you still converse with him like he is somewhat normal..no fear or anything You are an idiot edit.I tried again and thought maybe she does

connection and stuff but really, witnessing the object of my affections murder someone then kidnap me Yeah it s dead in the water then.If you can write a book so well PAY ATTENTION TO LOGIC They don t interact AT ALL and she s already obsessed with him.Even if Emily didn t like Cameron at all and only started to fall for him over time that would have made it so much better And damn it..I m twisted I love all of this kidnapping stuff I was so let down So I know what will happen.they will fall in love against all odds and..blahhhh I know there is a cliff hanger so something unexpected happens but I just.don t.care.The rest of the book could be the greatest thing ever written but like I said I JUST.DON T.CAREStupiiiiiid booooook pissed me off good and proper
