The Things I Never Said by Jo Raven
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Things I never Said by Jo Raven.
Evangeline (Ev) loves Micah Owens, he is strong, patient and protective, totally different from her crazy ex-boyfriends. However lately Micah has become quiet and sullen, with a tense and worried look, and when asked by Ev he says nothing is wrong. Ev knows there is something wrong, her Micah smiles all the time, right now he is not, and she is going to find out what is wrong, she needs to help him be happy again.
Micah grew up in care, he had a troubled time of it, nothing was good in his life until he met Ev, being in the care system had scarred him, in his eyes he was broken, and that he was someone who didn't deserve love. Micah realises he loves Ev but is fearful that his past will destroy their relationship.
This story just absolutely melts your heart. The present is tarnished by the past, how can Micah hope to go on if he cannot deal with the past? Ev is strong and sets out to help him, the pair is perfectly matched, she is his rock, and he is her everything. The sexual content is hot and steamy, and the Author has a fantastic way of drawing you in, making you feel the character's pain (and pleasure). This is a prequel to the Damage Control series and I cannot wait on reading more.
