Trish Hogan’s life was destroyed when she gave her trust to her high school boyfriend, Jackson, and he ripped it away, changing the course of her life.
A decade later she’s living in Manhattan — she has a roommate, a steady boyfriend and a career. When a hurricane puts the city on lock down, Trish gets a message she never thought she’d receive: Jackson is dying and alone.
In a city of millions, she is the only person who can sit by his side.   
Jackson Davis was once the golden child of a senator who went against his father’s plans and became a musician. Tatted up and broken, he wakes up in a hospital only to see Trish — the one person he needs to atone his sins to — standing before him. He will recover from his injuries, but not from the pain he caused in the past.
Trapped by the storm, they embark on a night of reckoning that has one running away to Hawaii and the other following in her steps. As the victim becomes the villain, the two are forced to face the past, live in the present and find a way to navigate into the future.

My Review

Rating : 4.5 out of 5 Stars

I had a very strong feeling that I was going to like this book from the moment that I read the blurb. Also, the cover is gorgeous, with Jeannine Colette’s recurring rose theme. Well, I devoured this book! « True Abandon » is a gut wrenching and emotional story of healing, forgiveness and redemption. It’s beautifully written and the vivid detail and pure emotion in which it’s written is excellent. There are so many compelling elements to the emotional journey of the characters.

This book tells the story of Jax Davis, a man struggling with regrets and Trish Hogan, the girl he betrayed. Years of pain have made Trish a broken woman, scared to love and trust. She has a job she doesn’t like and a boyfriend she can’t commit to. She never wanted to see Jax again, but he has other plans. When they are reunited and Jax tries with everything he’s got to put their relationship back together, Trish is understandably reluctant to let him in. She is confused and frightened by the way he still makes her feel, still consumes her.

I confess I had mixed feelings for Jax at first. What he did to Trish was unforgivable, I felt her devastation deeply and I resented him. So I liked that she made him work for her forgiveness. It was his determination to atone for his actions, his tenderness and undying love for Trish that won me over. The delicious angst of it all had my heart pounding. It was so clear that they belonged together, but there was so much standing in their way!

This book was a gripping love story about forgiveness and second chance. The journey that both Trish and Jax went through was bittersweet and emotional. How they were able to come back to each other after years of being apart was so heartwarming. This story is a standalone, told from the sole perspective of the heroine and has a happy ending.

Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
