Abandoned at birth, Sophie Shields grew up in abusive foster homes, escaping into books and computers for solace. When the constant danger became too much to bear, she ran away, thinking she could survive on her hacking skills alone.
That was until she met Cole Hunter. He became the only person she could trust: her family, her friend, her partner-in-crime. Her everything. After struggling through college and starting their lives together, she believed that nothing could ever tear them apart.
Until it did.
And she’ll do everything in her power to fix what is broken. If it isn’t too late…
When Cole was nine years old, he watched his whole family burn to death in a house fire. Fueled by years of obsession, he started one of the world’s leading architectural firms, with a mission to design homes resistant to fire, earthquakes, floods, and every threat known to man.
Sophie was his secret weapon. She was his purpose. Since they were teenagers, he was determined to build a better life for her, so she could finally be safe, and they could be together.
But disaster has always followed Cole around, ripping away everything he loves. This time, if he isn’t careful…
His enemies might just take him down.
This is definitely my favorite book of 2017! Okay, so we’re only a week into the new year, and this is pretty much the first book that I’ve read. But still!
Many of the hours of my drive were spent processing the words of his letter. They shouldn't have been so surprising, but they were. I knew it all along, how much he cared, but at the same time, I really didn't. Everything is going to be different now, when I see him again. It's going to be a little awkward, perhaps, and we're going to have a lot to talk about. And I'm going to have to punch him in his stupid face.
