Life can be cruel. People can be ruthless and evil. The world can be cold and uninviting. No one knows these things better than Josephine Geroux. By her own definition, she is a twenty-five year old “nobody with nothing,” and she is content to stay that way. Growing up an orphan has made her tough and indifferent to the people around her until she meets a strangely familiar man with a face that haunts her for reasons she can’t understand.

Despite the pain that will inevitably ensue, she makes it her mission to discover what parts of her tragic puzzle she is missing. On her journey to discovering why the she feels an alarming connection to an absolute stranger, her greatest fear is reawakening the demons and darkness from the past that will surely overtake her if she lets her guard down. 

Little does Josephine know that the past should be the least of her worries. She is toying with a man who has already broken her heart once. She just doesn’t realize it.
Although she makes it a point to avoid interactions with others, Josephine’s life becomes entangled with the enigmatic stranger. Before she realizes it, she has given herself over to the one person who is close enough to wreck her.

I read this book because I received a recommendation from another reader that this book was amazing and that I had to read it.  I have to say that Marilyn was right I loved this book!  It starts off at the very beginning when Josephine Geroux and her mother and father were in a horrific car accident when she was nine.  In one single moment in time, Jo loses her entire family and her whole world.  She is pulled from the wrecked vehicle buy a teenager whose name she never got; all these years later she still thinks of him as the man that is responsible for single-handedly killing her entire family and what else is she suppose to think when the man keeps say I’m so sorry for what’s happened.  Jo has had a difficult life, she lived for a while in the foster care system but ultimately she leaves the fend for herself and turns to the library to read falling in love with the library and books.  She finds herself years later on the doorstep of a bookstore and asks for a job from the owner who in turn gives her something to wear and tells her she’s expected to show up everyday to work and clean herself up.  Years later she’s still in love with the bookstore and she is now at the age of twenty five.  The story begins on the anniversary of the accident in which we find Jo working at the bookstore on a typical day when she chases a thief out of the store and runs right into a tall handsome man named Damon Cole that Jo knows she must instantly have right there on the spot.  The thing with Jo is that she likes to use meaningless sex with men to get by, she doesn’t do relationships she only does sex.  

Jo and Damon get together that night, and she can’t help but shake the feeling that she knows him from somewhere and he says he feels the same way and thinks they should continue to see one another until they figure out where they know each other from.  Jo doesn’t want a relationship, but Damon insists that he not only wants one but that he intends to keep her.  The sex and chemistry in this book was AMAZING these two characters are so drawn to one another and both coming from terrible pasts that haunt them both they find what they have always been looking for in one another.  Their relationship and passion grows with each passing day and everyone around them can see how great they are for one another especially the bookstore owner Sutton who she calls Captain and Damon’s grandmother Beatrice who they call Grams can see they belong to one another.  But Damon is hiding things from Jo, things that could potentially destroy the relationship and trust they are building with one another and Damon’s father Edward has come back into the picture and you are left wondering what part he plays in all of this.

I loved Damon he was sweet and dominate and everything I could ever want in a male and this book kept me up late at night reading trying to figure out what was going to happen next.  He was so caring towards Jo buying her the struggling bookstore after Sutton could no longer afford to keep it open and even bringing her a stray puppy for her to keep as her own.

I laughed, I cried, and I loved every single second of this book.  I especially cried when Sutton unexpectedly passes away leaving Jo broken and feeling so very alone which teaches her that she does have other that she can rely on through tough times and Damon is there for her the entire time.  So when the truth comes out about Damon and the secrets he has been hiding from Jo, it sends her running for the hills and Damon off the deep end.  He always kept begging her never to leave him and she did the one thing she swore she would never do, she leaves.  But Grams returns to shed some light on the truth but will Jo get there in time to save their relationship?  And who is Noni and what part will she play in this story?  I cannot WAIT to read Restore me, lucky for me it’s already out because the cliffhanger at the end of this book had my mouth hanging open.  You don’t even see it coming.
