Angel and Chase come from two different worlds. Angel grew up privileged. Her father is CEO of Cavanagh and Associates and her mother owns a successful dance school. Chase on the other hand grew up with a neglectful, manipulating mother, who put her numerous husbands and boyfriends before the welfare of her own son. So much so that when he was twelve, his stepfather at the time, who also happens to be a member of a notorious bikie gang, walked away from his marriage, taking Chase with him.
Angel Angel is daddy’s little princess. In his eyes, no one is good enough for his little girl. Due to his overprotectiveness, at the age of twenty-two she’s never had a serious boyfriend. She decides to move away from home to finish school, so she can experience all that life has to offer. That includes men. When she meets Chase Daniels, sparks fly. He’s the ultimate womanising bad boy. Even though her common sense says stay away, she can’t seem to control the attraction she feels for him.
Chase Chase doesn’t hold women in high regard due to his past. With his good looks and charm though, he has women falling at this feet. Just the way he likes it. He’s a playboy and doesn’t do commitment. Then he meets Angel. She’s not only beautiful, but sweet and innocent. Nothing like the women he’s used to. The feelings he has for her are foreign to him and he doesn’t like it one bit. Despite all this, he’s drawn to her, like a moth to a flame.
Not only do they have their families to contend with, there’s also the secrets from Chase’s past. These secrets have the potential to destroy him, and will also tear them apart. The odds are stacked against them, but will they still be able to find happiness together? Or will it be enough to stop the one thing they want more than anything, each other?

I had so many feels during reading this book. One minute, I’m happy right along with the characters and the next I’m crying for them. This book was an incredible read! I love seeing two characters fight for love and win. Angel, comes from a very privileged and spoiled life. She never had a boyfriend and any time she tried, her overbearing dad would end it real quick. She is out to show her parents she can survive without them and lose that pesky virginity. After being warned by her best friend not to fall for Chase’s charm, she can’t help the connection between them. They start out as friends until a rainstorm and it changes everything for them. Chase, has never believed in love, so he basically becomes a manwhore. He watched what his mom did to his Pops and didn’t want that at all. Chase is charming, sexy as Hell and knows how to get the ladies but that all changes once he connects with Angel and can’t help to fall for her. They have their ups and down including a very determined father/son duo who won’t stop attacking her. Throughout it all and with the help of their families, they find the love and keep it. This book bought out so many emotions for me. I was crushed right along with Angel and felt the loss. I had tears running down my face. Along with the main characters, the supporting ones captured me as well. This is just one big family who stick together, support each other and just love each other. I laughed, cried and fell in love with this book!
