About The Author~
My name is Wendi Hulsey. I was born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin, just south of Milwaukee. After several vacations to the sunshine state, my husband and I fell in love with the warm weather and decided to have a house built in Florida. I miss my family and friends up north;however, I will never regret not having to shovel snow again. I have been a registered nurse for about ten years. I currently work on a medical/surgical unit, preferring to work the night shift. My husband and I have been married for sixteen years, and I appreciate his support during this endeavor. I have one son who is a hard working grown man now living on his own. He has blessed me with the most precious grandson and a wonderful future daughter in law. My daughter is a beautiful and smart teenager who excels at just about anything she tries. She enjoys playing soccer and we have spent numerous hours on various soccer fields. I am blessed to have my mother, a retired cook, living with me and she is a great help with cooking, cleaning, and chauffeuring the teenager. Other members of our family include; one dog, one cat, two turtles and several fish. My love for reading began at the age of twelve on a stormy day. With nothing to do I was bugging my mother, she said, “Go read a book.” I have never stopped. As a teenager, I preferred horror books, mainly Stephen King. As I age, my reading tastes change and I currently read mysteries, romance, or erotica. It has always been my dream to write a book. Although writing is a hobby for me, I hope to produce a book to the best of my abilities and hope you have enjoyed what you read. Thank you for your support.

I didn't know what to expect when I 1st started this book. But, I ended up really, really enjoying it. This is Wendi's debut book & what a debut it was!

We start off with a very scared Kylie. Kylie has been in a relationship with Dylan. He keeps her prisoner in their apartment and uses her as a punching bag. Kylie has kept in touch with her childhood friends, twins Courtney & Cameron. They moved away years ago. She's best friends with Courtney. Cameron is her 1st & only real love she's ever had. After Kylie tells Courtney what's been going on, Courtney & Cameron buy her a one way ticket away from Dylan.

Once Kylie gets off that plane and see's Courtney it's like a huge weight lifted off her shoulders. Kylie & Courtney pick right back up like they just saw each other yesterday. Cameron on the other hand. He's a NASCAR driver & trying to get sponsors. So, until he can meet up with them at dinner he sets them up with a spa day. While Kylie is getting the massage of her life, the massage therapist gets a little too frisky. When she jumps up & turns around she sees the same eyes that she fell in love with all those years ago, Cameron. I must say I was very jealous of the massage that Kylie got. Hahaha!!

Thing's really, really pick up from there with Kylie & Cameron. That night when they go out to dinner, Cameron brings Blake. Cameron is thinking of renting  a room to Blake and wants Courtney & Kylie's thoughts on him. Which is a automatic yes! Especially since Courtney noticed him playing volleyball on the beach that day & planned on trying to find him and get to know him if you know what I'm saying. **Wink Wink**

After Blake & Courtney go home together, Kylie ends up at  Cameron's. From that night they very rarely leave each others side. The only times they're apart is when Cameron is trying to get the sponsors he needs & Kylie is with Courtney. They are either shopping or trying to find Kylie a job. 

You'd think that everything is picture perfect. Well, guess again. Kylie is on edge! Every time she turns around she's either smelling Dylan's cologne, her stuff is moved or she feels like she is being followed. Everybody thinks she's just over reacting. Only Kylie knows how bad Dylan is. He always told her if she left him he'd find & kill her.

I really liked this story. I liked that it was in both Kylie & Cameron POV. I really did love their relationship. They really were so much in love & the sex!! They had such incredible sex! I mean WOW!! What I didn't like was how fast their relationship developed. I mean Kylie was with Dylan for 3 year. He beat the hell out of her  for  absolutely no reason. I don't know any woman that goes from being beaten on a daily basis. To starting a new relationship, even if you knew him when they were younger. I mean if you didn't know about Dylan, you'd never know she had it that bad. That was the only thing that annoyed me. That, and the cliffhanger!! What a cliffhanger it was too. I'm so mad that I have to wait until Spring to find out what happens next!!

 "Kylie, I've never wanted someone as bad as I want you right now. You have no idea what you are doing to me. I just don't want to push things too fast and scare you away. I want to do things right, and cherish you."

"You make me feel things I have never felt before. I dreamed about what it would be like with you; however the dreams were nothing compared to reality. I'm certainly a lucky lady."
