I started reading the sample of these books. I got sucked in right away. Knox and McKenna are two lonely people looking for a place to belong. Knox's mother died and his father took off a few years later leaving him a senior in high school with three younger brothers to care for. Kenna's parents died and ever since she has felt lost. She is a therapist and volunteer's a lot. She runs a Saturday morning group for Sex Addicts. This is where she meets Knox. He got caught driving drunk but a counselor said he sought sex to forget his problems and sentenced him to the counseling group.
Kenna does not know that is why he is there. She offers to counsel him outside the group because he feels uncomfortable. She goes to his house and see a different side of him and also finds the family she needs.
This is a sweet story about two people that desperately need love but don't find it until they meet.
Twenty-one year old McKenna is trying to make amends. After losing her parents in a horrific accident, she knows if she can just be good enough, maybe she can forgive herself for what happened. With her newly acquired degree in counseling, she begins leading a sex addicts group where she meets the troubled Knox and her life takes on complications she never bargained for. She doesn't have time for a bad boy who only wants to take her to bed, even if her body disagrees. The fixer in her wants to help, but trusting Knox's true motivations might take more courage than she has.
The girl’s voice wasn’t familiar. Probably because we hadn’t done much talking when I brought her home last night. I wondered if the screams and moans she let out during sex would be more familiar to me. Probably not; I was pretty wasted when we’d gotten here.
The girl sucked her lower lip into her mouth, her eyes welling with tears. There was nothing I hated more than seeing a girl cry.
