However, Luke’s twin, Olivia, doesn’t share in their happiness, worrying the new relationship will change the ones she has with her best friend and brother. This disapproval quickly tests Luke and McKenzie’s intense love for one another.

This is a story of friendship, family and love. I enjoyed this story; the characters are lovable and kind. McKenzie, Luke and Olivia are inseparable friends that started forming this bond since the age of five. But what happens when you are growing up and your feelings begin to change. Can their undeniable bonds stand the test of time and love?
McKenzie has always felt a different kind of bond to Luke, but until the past few years didn’t understand. She didn’t want to act on her changes feelings, in fear of losing the lifelong friendship that she has with not only Luke but also Olivia. McKenzie has overcome extremely hard issues of abuse growing up and Luke (& Olivia) has been there to help her survive and move past.
Luke is a person that has always been told what his plan in life was going to be and he didn’t have a say in it. He struggled with coming to terms not only with his future and how to gain control from his father, but also how to handle his feelings for McKenzie.
Throughout this story both Luke and McKenzie share flashbacks that add great insight to the years of bonding between the three of the kids. The flashbacks helped to demonstrate how the friendship between Luke and McKenzie was evolving and changing throughout the years as they were growing older.
This book is about fate, destiny, true love and growing up. The story of McKenzie and Luke is amazing to read, it pulls at the heartstrings. It takes you through happy times and sad, and shows you that true friendship can stand the test of time. McKenzie, Luke and Olivia find that with the love and support of family and friends anything is possible. As long as you believe in yourself, have faith in your love for one another you can accomplish and overcome anything you set your mind to.
Scarlet Wolfe began writing in January of 2013 as a way to distract and heal from some of the grief she was dealing with after the death of her teenage son.
She instantly fell in love with bringing characters to life. Releasing contemporary romance throughout 2013, she has already branched out this year, releasing erotica and teen.
She loves her family, friends, chocolate, wine, stories about possessive, hot alpha males, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. 😉
She hopes her writing will encourage readers to feel more comfortable exploring their sexuality.
