It all started with a simple phrase. 

Love Sucks 

The moment Vanessa Hilliard walked into the tattoo shop uttering those two words was the day my life began its downward spiral. 

Or maybe it’s the day my life began. 

My name is Rex Grayson. 

And this is my story. 


The day I met Rex Grayson, I got a hell of a lot more than I bargained for. He sparked something inside of me -- possibility. A word that never existed in my world before. He caused me to question who I was and made me want things I never dreamed were possible.

We’ve both got a mountain of shit in our past. 

My name is Vanessa Hilliard. I have an affinity for the unusual and seriously twisted. 

He thinks this is his story. 

But it’s really mine.
**This is a full-length Adult Contemporary Romance that contains mature sexual content and language and is not intended for readers under the age of 18.** 

    I subtly open my legs, hoping he might take the hint and move his hand where I really need it. Instead, he continues to drive me crazy with his calloused finger circling just above my knee. His warm breath fans my neck, and I bite back the noise that wants to escape when his tongue makes contact with that sensitive spot behind my ear.     “You taste so good,” he murmurs,
“and I bet you’re already wet for me.”
    “Beyond wet,” I whisper back, not wanting the taxi driver to hear and think that I’m a sex-crazed freak, even though I feel like one. Rex inhales a jagged breath, his hand finally wandering higher up my thigh.      “I can’t wait until my tongue can find out just how much,” he says quietly.
     And when I glance up at him, his eyes denote a hunger that lights a flame inside of me. One that’s been buried for quite some time. I press my lips together, staring out the window in an attempt to distract myself. My skin tingles with anticipation as I try to rein in my breathing that is currently out of control.
But I don’t have to wait too long. Within minutes, the taxi pulls up in front of his building. Rex pays the driver and practically jerks me from the seat, latching onto my hand as we fly into the building like two sex-starved lunatics.
He hesitates the moment we enter the glass door, glancing up at the flight of stairs then back to me.
With a devious grin, he scoops me up under my knees and I let out a yelp of surprise.
“Ahh! What on earth are you doing, Rex?” I laugh, my head dropping back.
He continues striding up the stairs with purpose.      “What does it look like I’m doing?”
“Why are you carrying me? I can walk, you know.”     “Blondie, shut up and kiss me,” he demands.
    “I need motivation for climbing.”

I was totally sucked into Beth's writing style when I read Finding Autumn. I was anxiously awaiting Rex's story and it definitely didn't disappoint. 
Rex was the dark brooding tattooed hero that plays it off like nothing gets to him. But inside he had pain and battles that broke my heart. Vanessa had a childhood that would turn anyone into a anti-love cynic. She couldn't recognize it because she never had it. Once they met it didn't take long for Vanessa to see right through Rex's facade and his pain called to her and she couldn't walk away. 
 Whatever has him this rattled, I want to be able to carry it away, ease his pain, even if only for a little while.  
Rex didn't know why she affected him like she did. Women for "one thing only" and he always kept it no strings attached. But it wasn't like this for him and Vanessa. 
Everything about her disarms me: her smile, her touch, her spirit. Little by little, she’s diffusing the bomb that constantly ticks, the one threatening to rip me apart—and I don’t even think she gets it.  
What started as two people attracted by a deep lust turned into something they both couldn't deny. Fighting demons from years past and trying to tightly hold on to each other. 
I felt that Beth wrote a love story about accepting the past and realizing you could change your own future. To give into feelings didn't make them weak but gave them back their strength. Passionate encounters that took my breath away . There were so many playful moments between Rex and Vanessa. (His "Blondie") Rex wasn't all pain and shadows, no he had a snarky and funny disposition that made me laugh out loud so many times. Without even knowing how, he took care of Vanessa in ways she never experienced before and it was so tender and sweet.
He was a bright soul that made her laugh and their sweet and sexy times together made this one beautiful love story. His dirty mouth was fantastic and she gave as good she got.
  I couldn't put this down for longer than a few moments. I am definitely happy and satisfied by this sexy emotional love story and it was so totally worth the wait.
