"Darius Bennett used to be in a relationship with Taylor Erickson until he broke things off with her 5 years ago because he believed she was better off with out him. Darius doesn't believe he can truly love Taylor the way she needs to be loved. Now, standing in his half sister Allie's condo, who is also Taylor's best friend, he is looking at Taylor's bruised face and wanting to kill the person responsible....ok....so maybe he still does love her but he will never admit that. Knowing exactly what Taylor needs, he tells Allie to leave. What begins as just comforting Taylor, turns into much more and these two pick back up right where they left off.
While Taylor wants to keep the beating a secret from her parents, things quickly blow up. While Darius is trying to help Taylor, things in his private life are also blowing up. Just when they both need each other, things happen and feelings get hurt. After much soul searching, these two do find their way back to each other and finally get their happy ending. There are also interesting things happening with the DC group and no one knows exactly why, but Ryder is looking into it!
Overall, I loved Darius. He had such horrible things from his childhood that have turned him into this strong, determined man. I also loved how he is able to command attention but at the same time is nice about. Taylor grew up always wanting to please everyone, but never really took the time to please herself first. Over time, she finally became a strong woman who went after what she really wanted. Another great addition to this wonderful series. I can't wait for Ryder's story next!"
