Summary

A broken boy on the path to destruction. A scarred girl without direction. A love story carved in secrets, inked with pain, and sealed with a lie.

Grace Shaw and West St. Claire are arctic opposites. She is the strange girl from the food truck. He is the mysterious underground fighter who stormed into her sleepy Texan college town on his motorcycle one day and has been wreaking havoc since. She is invisible to the world. He is the town’s beloved bad boy. She is a reject. He is trouble.

When West thrusts himself into Grace’s quiet life, she scrambles to figure out if he is her happily-ever-after or tragic ending. But the harder she pushes him away, the more he pulls her out of her shell.

Grace doesn’t know much about anything beyond her town’s limits, but she does know this: She is falling in love with the hottest guy in Sheridan U. And when you play with fire - you ought to get burned.

Absolutely loved it.

I have only read a couple of books by LJ Shen and although they were good, I didn’t expect to live this book as much as I did. The narrators were great and did Grace & West justice. The overall story was great, once I started listening I actually struggled to stop. I found myself listening with my earphones in ad I did all the housework and extending the sleep timer rather than actually sleeping. I’m not sure why I loved this story so much but I do. The struggles & tragedy they both have faced in the past threatening to ruin what could be with West trying to always protect Grace even if it means hurting them both. It was so well written and performed that it’s now one of my favourites. I would really recommend this book.

LJ Shen At Her Best

Angsty, emotional, tragic, sexy, intense, beautiful.

Grace and West are one of my favorite couples from 2020.

ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL

omg listening to this story made it so much more raw.

Desiree did an amazing job with the southern drawl that is grace.
Christian fox has just become my favourite male narrator, damn that deep voice, it made you feel so much more when West spoke.

They both made this audio, I was hanging on thier every word.


grace and wests story completely consumed me and absolutely broke me i couldnt stop listening.

Through their highs and lows I felt it all.

This is that book, the one that stays with you forever.

Could not recommend this book enough💜

Amazing story!

I absolutely loved this story. One of the best by L. J. Shen in my opinion. Performance was great.
I would only point out that I thought it was a bit longer then needed. But other then that, I highly recommended!

So Good

This book was just so good I couldn't stop listening.

I love that West just sees Grace for Grace and not her scars and makes sure she feels confident and feels beautiful.

When Grace decides to speak her mind and be her confident self, she just excelled and realising people weren't even looking at her scars was everything.

Desiree Ketchum was the perfect Grace her southern accent made Grace so loveable, and when she needed to be sassy, she brought it! Christian Fox was everything as West his voice just makes me feel so relaxed, and he really made me feel the emotion in West secret he was hiding.
