"They think Jeremy murdered her."
Drugs pushed them away...will murder bring them together?
Since losing the rock star love of her life, Harvard Law student Dylan Ackhart is doing the best she can to move on. Now in her third and final year, she's doing well in school and just landed her dream internship in Boston's District Attorney's office. She keeps away from the news so she doesn't hear about Jeremy Mason- about his frequent parties, new women, and apparent drug use.
But when the body of a young girl is found in his home, suddenly Dylan and Jeremy are thrust together in the most difficult and awkward of circumstances. Dylan is forced to choose between the only man she ever loved and the only dream she ever wanted. Will she leave everything behind and be with Jeremy? Or will Jeremy find himself in more trouble than she can help him out of?
REVIEWED BY SARAH
*I received a review copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Where I held a few reservations about Tracks, Trials is a no-holds barred, pure angst-filled ride! From page one, your heart leaves your chest and you are left with uncertainty. You see, Trials doesn’t pick immediately back up from where we left Dylan and Jeremy. At the end of Tracks, they have decided to go their separate ways, believing in their current state they are toxic for each other. Though they have ended it, we are led to believe it is only temporary and that they will find each other again someday.
We sit for a few minutes, not looking at each other. The tension in the room is heave and I’m concentrating on breathing evenly so that I don’t give in and pass out. Regardless, my heart is more alive at this moment than it has been in the past ten months.
Imagine my surprise when we pick up a year later, and not only is she NOT with Jeremy, not only is she WITH Scott, but they haven’t spoken in over 10 months. As in he just up and dropped off the face of the earth, switched off his phone and his bodyguards, and all his social networking sites. Out of the blue. Like I said, this book starts off with a bang and doesn’t let up for the majority of the journey.
“Damn you, Dylan,” he says, growling the words in between kisses. “Damn you for making me love you so much. I need you. I need you now. I’ve never needed anything more in my life than I need you right now.”
What I really loved about this couple is the magnetism between them. No matter space nor distance, they are never far from each other’s minds. No matter who they may be with at the time, their heart is already spoken for. I almost feel sorry for their placeholders, but only slightly. The passion between Dylan and Jeremy is OFF THE CHARTS! They have both overcome a lot, but there are still many hills to climb.
“You love me. Stop making up excuses for us not to be together. It’s been long enough, Dylan. I don’t want to waste any more time living without you. My money, my career, my looks, my voice…they mean nothing to me. You give my life meaning. You saved me. Let me make you my life.”
I truly LOVED this book! I am not sure if this is the end of the series or not, but if it is, I am okay with how we left them. There are many trials and tribulations in this book, as the title so aptly suggests, but the strongest of all will always prevail, and that is love. 5 stars from me!
“The truth is, I’m only happy when I’m with you. I’m only comforted when you comfort me. I only feel safe when you shelter me.”
