Niall Donovan is a talented photographer. When it comes to women, he can have his pick and has. But beneath the flirtatious, joking smiles he's hiding long buried pain and traumatic memories. Memories that are breaking the surface once more. Memories that he’ll do anything to shut up. When suicide doesn’t work for him, he indulges in pills, drugs, and physical pain. They seem to help some, but they barely take the edge off.
London Black has been put through the wringer. Between a car accident that nearly killed her, months of physical therapy, and finding out the boyfriend she moved to Midtown for has been cheating all along, she’s done being the sweet wholesome girl everyone thinks she is. A one night stand with the sexy photographer she meets at a club is just the thing she needs to boost her ego. It does more than that when the explicit photos of them are the main exhibit at the local art gallery. Embarrassed, angry, and now without a prospective job, she confronts him on opening night. But when he offers her a generous deal with room and board in return for more photos, she accepts. Taking naked photos with him for a large sum of cash doesn’t seem like that horrible of an option, and besides they both intend to keep things completely professional.
When the shutter starts snapping, however, it’s hard for either to deny what's developing between them. Neither are in a good place and prefer those desires stay hidden in the dark, but the camera doesn’t lie. Baring it all may expose more than their bodies. But exposing their hearts may be more than Niall or London bargained for.

You keep trying to push me away. Telling me I should go, telling me I don't want to do the shoots because they want something edgier, telling me I shouldn't be with you because of how horribly fucked up you are. If I didn't want to be here, I would have taken that check when you tried to give it to me the first time.”

That was incredibly hard to read, but so worth the time. I read the first book in this series before diving into this one so I already had a feel for the authors style and it's a good thing I was prepared – she is not afraid to go to places others might not and this book was no different, was actually even rougher than the first book. Some of the subject matter will be difficult to read but it makes the rewards at the end that much sweeter. These characters were incredibly damaged- Niall much more so, but they were exactly what the other needed. London turned out to be such a strong female lead-forgiving and patient, smart and sexy, and I honestly believe she saved Niall from himself... and so much more. Yes I'm being kinda evasive here, but that's because this book takes a surprising twist three quarters of the way through that I didn't see coming. We gets hints that there may be some trouble on the horizon, but it still doesn't prepare you for what happens. From start to finish this incredible journey had me in it's grip-there is tons of angst and drama, smokin hott sex, laughs and lots of tears as well as some fear and one crazy ass bitch. If you like your romance a bit on the darker side and don't mind the author putting your heart through the grinder, then this is definitely the book for you.

It was my choice. I made it. I want you. Every part of you.”
