Having the wrong things in common with the right girl at the wrong time has always been a tragic issue for Easton Ballantine. At least it was when it came to Georgia Armstrong.
Georgia Armstrong’s nomadic life had left her worn and lacking the desire to attach to anyone or anything. She’d been burned and felt the coldness of loss and was content to drift at will until she found a reason to stay.
Broken roads and bad decisions, which led to right ones, were the demons in both their past—choices that would either draw them together, or rip them apart.
“I tend to attract the broken.”
“I’m not broken,” Easton snapped in a hiss of words.
She felt her body tense before her next bold words came. “Did I say you were?” She lifted her chin. “Am I attracting you, Easton Ballantine?”
He looked right at her, green to blue, a stare reaching past the fraudulent calm surface. Yes, she was. Which only pissed him off more. Not only was she not anywhere near his type, she was Memphis’s kid sister, Lucas’s daughter—she was seventeen. No way in hell this is going down.
He smirked to break the gaze they shared, to put a wall between her and him—to do anything to block the way she was messing with his head.
“I’m every kind of bad habit you don’t want or need, Georgia.”
Review by Lorena
I was completely and utterly entranced with this story. I swooned over Easton -- I mean why can't we have more men in this world like him!!
Easton was the type of guy that went out of his way for everyone and I mean everyone. He fell in love with his best friend's younger sister but he knew she was forbidden.
Georgia lived with her mother but she longed to live and be with her dad and brother but it wasn't an option, she had to live with her mother and she was obligated to do that until she turned 18. When Georgia returned to their small hometown to attend her father's funeral, she and Easton spend some time together and start to feel something for each other, but it's short-lived because she leaves soon after her father's funeral and goes back with her mother.
Years pass and she finally goes back to her hometown but she's broken as can be. But it seems like Easton is just as broken so how would it even work if they're both broken and don't know if they can rekindle their passion and/or even trust that they won't hurt each other in the long run?
Easton decides that she's worth the risk and will show Georgia exactly what he can do for her and show her how much he loves her. Georgia realizes that living without Easton isn't an option and she's willing to give this a try. She's not living in the past or the future, she is just living in the now and see where it takes them. But Easton shows her that there is more to this thing they got going and they can actually look beyond the now.
But in the process of them healing each other and showing each other how much they love one another, their pasts come colliding in and trying to mess with their perfect relationship. Minds get twisted and things get a little out of control, but nothing that Georgia and Easton can't eventually work out.
In the end, will their past eventually leave them alone and let this beautiful couple live the life they were robbed from several years ago? We all know that they were meant to be together no matter the circumstances and what they had to endure to get to where they are now!
This book, I tell ya was good as heck and I just could not find myself to take a break from reading it. The moment I started, I read through it all in one sitting and totally fell in love with Easton so I had to continue reading because I had to find out where this story was going to lead and how it was going to end. Don't get me wrong, at times I would get flustered with Georgia and I wanted to throw a punch at something because she would just get on my nerves from time to time, but from continuing to read and see how much patience Easton had with her and was willing to take it slow for her is what soothed me in the end.
I loved, loved this story and I loved, loved Easton -- he's my new book boyfriend for the moment <3

Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she'd never been, introduce her to people she's never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.
