A chance encounter. An undeniable connection. An unimaginable twist of fate.
Kailey’s life is crumbling. Her best friend and sister, Jen, is dying, leaving her young family devastated. With little hope of saving her, Kailey is forced to face a reality she never expected.
Trey’s life is fun and carefree. He loves the girls, his drums, and his friends. That’s not to say he isn’t continuously plagued by a difficult decision made years ago—one that changed the course of his life.
Despite the connection they make when their paths unexpectedly cross, Kailey knows her life has no room for anyone else right now. But regardless of how many times she pushes him away, Trey only fights harder to make a place for him in her life and in her heart.
Trey thought he knew heartbreak, but he had no idea until life gave him a second chance, only to snatch it away just as fast. This time he’s determined to keep his place in the life of the ones he loves.
Is there such a thing as fate? If so, can Kailey and Trey hold on to one another long enough to discover there’s no such thing as a chance encounter?
I curl my knees up to my chest, shivering, my face glued to the couch. I peel my mouth away from the leather, wiping the drool as I sit up. Shit, it’s cold in this state. Staring at the practically empty bottle of Jack sitting on the coffee table, regret hits me. I’ll be useless for the rest of today. That is, until I can drown myself into another bottle tonight.
After I stand up, I attempt to steady myself by holding my arms out, like a toddler on a balance beam, willing the room stop swirling. “He’s down here,” Dex screams up the stairs.
“Shit, quiet the fuck down,” I tell him, and he laughs boisterously. Jackass!
“What the hell, man? We’ve been searching all over for you,” he says, plopping himself on the couch.
“Well, you found me,” I say, sitting back down, grateful for the excuse not to move for the time being.
“You got to get it together. We’re going to that party at Sam’s tonight. Screw Kailey, there’ll be plenty of girls begging to have your dick tonight.” Dex’s attempt to pull me from this funk, only reminds me of who Kailey thinks I am.
“Shut the hell up, Hulk.” Brady smacks Dex across the back of his head. He tosses me a bottle of water and sits on the other side of me.
“Just because you and Grant have gone all in, doesn’t mean the rest of us want one pussy for the rest of our lives,” Dex adds with humor in his voice.
“Grow up,” Brady says and picks up the nearly empty bottle in front of him. “If this,” he waves it in the air, “and fucking a different pussy every chance you get is being single, then I’m more than happy where my dick lands every night,” he finishes, setting the bottle back down.
“Save us the whole commitment is the best speech,” Dex banters back.
Brady stares Dex down in annoyance while all the back and forth makes my headache a little more intense.
“If she has you doing this, she must be worth it.” Brady cocks an eyebrow at me, and I stare back at him, already recognizing he’s right, but no way in hell am I going to admit it to him.
“Shit,” I mumble, and Brady drones his fatherly know it all ‘uh huh’ under his breath. Cocky bastard. Standing up, I take the steps two at a time. Right before I reach the top, I hear Brady and Dex talking.
“You give shitty advice,” Brady tells Dex.
“Fuck off, Mrs. Sadie Miller,” Dex says in return. “He’s gonna become pussy whipped, just like your ass.”
“And believe me, he’ll be happier,” Brady adds. As I reach the main floor, I pray Brady’s right.

The Invisibles Series
✯✯10 Huge Stars!!!✯✯
"I'm sorry I never noticed you before Kailey but I see you now. You're all I see...all I want. You have to believe me. No girl comes close to what you do to me."
Let me start off with the fact that I'm such a huge fan of Michelle Lynn & a huge fan of this series. But, I must say that this book is seriously my FAVORITE book of the whole series!! This story seriously had everything in it. You will learn why Trey is the way that he is. You get more of Brady & Sadie. More Grant & Jessa. More Dex & Rob. Michelle did a fantastic job at continuing all of their stories while telling Trey & Kailey's as well. I literally was laughing out loud one minute. Then, crying hysterically the next.
We pick up right where 'Let Me In' ended. If you read it then you know that as the gang was headed to Jessa's families house Dex & Trey meet Kailey on the plane. Kailey and Trey hit it off and hung out the whole time. But, that's all we knew.
"You're everything...everything I've needed and wanted."
Now, we get the whole story. We learn that Kailey is visiting her aunt & uncle. Kailey has a lot of stuff she's dealing with for a 22yr old college student. My heart went out to her. Trey is still Trey. Hot, sexy, doesn't have a care in the world, has a different girl every chance he gets. Then, they meet and both of their lives are changed!!
They are back at home at Trey can only think about Kailey. She has done something to him. Trey knows that she is it for him. The problem... Kailey is doing everything to push him away. She just wanted him to use her the way he used every other woman. See, Kailey has seen Trey at school & at the bars. She needed an escape & when she saw him at the airport she wanted him to make everything go away. What she wasn't prepared for was Trey to fall head over heals for her & not let her push him away.
"Be arrogant, be smug, be confident baby. To me you're the top number one billboard hit of all time. That one song that people try to redo but nothing compares to the original. The first version is so amazing and beautiful that no one can even come close."
Kailey decides she'll give him an easy way out. She takes him home. Trey didn't know what to expect. They walk into to house and Trey finds out that Kailey's sister who was also the one who raised her after their parents died is also dying. Kailey moved in with her sister to help her brother-in-law take care of her 2 nieces & nephew and her sister. After her sister dies she plans on staying to help him out. In Kailey's mind that is all she will have time for. Going to school and taking care of her family. Trey is not part of that plan.
Trey on the other hand can not and will not let Kailey push him away. He does everything he can to prove to her that he is in it or the long haul. Trey has never felt this way about anyone. He knows he adores Kailey's nieces & nephew. He loves Kailey. Trey will not be pushed away.
Kailey & Trey are different from every other couple in this series. These 2 have gone through hell & back. I can not believe what has happened to them. The people that they have lost. I love how we finally get to see the real Trey. Not the player that he appears to be. He is so deep in so many ways. When he cares about you he will do just about anything to make sure you know it. Trey is always there for his friends. He really is the perfect guy. Kailey is another one who will do anything for the people she cares about.
I really can tell you everything about this book. But, I honestly don't want to give much of anything away. Lol. But, I will tell you set a whole day aside, get a box of tissues and find a good place to read. You will not be able to put this down once you pick it up. I loved everything about this book!! Michelle out did herself with this one. I have said this to her & my friends that this is her BEST BOOK YET!!! She put so many twists & turns in this story & I loved every one of them. I honestly can not wait to see whats next for everyone!!
"I fucking love you Kailey and you're not going to toss me away because you're scared,"
"I'm here. Do you understand? I'm not going anywhere I'm yours."
