Madison has come far in her life. She has changed and grown up in many ways. The only problem she has is Luc is still a big part of her life even if he doesn't know it. She has to get him out of her head. I liked her and how she pushed to become better. She has that scorned woman feel that I know several of us have felt like. Luc is a very sexy rich man used to getting what he wants. He used to be a user but has changed in many ways. I like the man he is now and I could see the appeal he would have to a teen girl years ago.
This is a short story but a great one. You have two remarkable characters and plenty of steaminess between them. The story has a good plot to it so it's not just a sexy book.
