I loved to draw and paint, throwing those spectacular colors across a blank canvas and turning it into something unique. Young, carefree, with the world in the palm of my hands. The options limitless.
My world ended the night the door creaked open. It was their first of many visits. Life as I knew it went blank. It became a survival game and counting my only solace to get through the pain.
It all became too much. I ran into the darkness of the night. That blank canvas long forgotten and uncomplete. The ways of the streets became my new home. Drugs and sex my new survival. Until one night, it all went too far.
I was happy to know the pain would finally end; welcomed being murdered in a lonely alley. All of the weight on my shoulders and vicious memories would be long forgotten once I took my final breath.
Life hates me, and I didn’t die. A second chance was handed to me, but what happens when I don’t want it?
This time, I have the chance to make my own art.
One person’s Blank Canvas is another’s Graffiti.

If you're wondering if when I finished reading The Hitchhiker did I jump right into this book. Then, yes! Yes, I did and I loved every page and every word of Blank Canvas.
When I read The Hitchhiker I was intrigued and wanted to know more about the sexy doctor who put his job on the line for Katch and Caitlin. I wanted to know what made him do what he does.

That nights different though. When she's getting attacked he jumps into action and finds her foaming at the mouth and bloodied to a pulp barely clinging to life. It's her eyes he sees. As blue as a bluebird. Hs bluebird. It's then he promises to save her life ad get her away from this alley.

Zeke is drawn to Amelia for a few reasons. He wants to get her help and save her. Maybe he needs to do it bc he couldn't save her. He won't loose Amelia either.
What starts as a slow building friendship, turns into something much more hot, passionate and real. Unlike either of them ever had. Zeke needs help getting his charity event to help women get the help the need set up he goes to Amelia. He needs help. She needs a job. Its a win-win for both of them.
Zeke and Amelia's story is beautiful. They're both fighting their inner demons. Zeke really is the perfect man. The way he fights to save every patient that ends up on his table. To the way he'll do anything for his brother and the MC. To the way he wanted to give Amelia aka his bluebird anything and everything was amazing. Lets talk about Amelia. She had a crap life. But, when she got the chance to live, man she took it. Even though she went all she went through she was definitely mature for her age and all she went through. She's beautiful and never once took anything given to her for granted.
Charlie Lee is killing it! The way they took on Amelia's story was perfect. This book was better then the first. I am beyond excited for the next book which belongs to Brick. I can't wait! I'm hoping its Brick and Zoe's story. Even though this is considered a standalone I'd recommend reading The Hitchhiker first. You'd get what they speak about in this book and it not be spoiled when you do read it. I was also already crushing on Dr Zeke before opening the book.
