He broke me.
He gave me everything I never knew I wanted then in one moment destroyed all my happiness.
Now I’m back in Araminta to finish senior year before I move on and leave this town full of fake and corrupted people behind.
I don’t expect him to chase me. To change the game. He wants my heart but it’s destroyed. Even as we fight back against his enemies who want to ruin his name, he puts me above all else.
He wants to protect me. Fix me. Claim me. Too bad I’m not the same girl I was. I can’t forgive him....
So fuckin sober.
I’m broken and bruised but the only pain I feel is watching her and knowing I can’t have her. Danger lurks around us. My enemies are growing in numbers. I need to keep her safe and untouched by the chaos I created. I will destroy the walls around her heart and prove to both of us that I am the man she wanted me to be. She wants to breeze in and fade out...not this time. She’s back and she will be mine. I can’t live without her.
5 Heart Review by Lorena
I absolutely love second chance stories because whoever messes up has a chance to redeem themselves and Darrian definitely redeemed himself in Hearts and Flowers.
I get it, Darrian was a major jerk to Nora in the first book BUT he thought he had a reason to hate her and in the process of hating her, he fell in love with her and when he found out the truth, it was too late for him to go back and explain to Nora why he did what he did because Nora had left and wasn't planning on coming back.
Darrian will do anything in his power to try and win his girl back. We learn a lot about Darrian in this book and I totally was on board with him rectifying his mistakes and showing Nora that he truly did love her.
Ms. Brooks has totally made me a fan of her writing and I can't wait to see what she has planned for us next!
