This Love of Mine (Raine Series)

This Love of Mine (Raine, #1)=
 
I needed an escape. An escape from my momma, a woman who cared more about herself than her own daughter. A woman who couldn't stand the sight of me since my father left. A boyfriend who was nothing but trouble. Trouble that I couldn't say no to.

Unfortunately, leaving them both would prove to be either the best decision I could ever make, or the biggest mistake of my life.

My plan was to escape to the one place I always felt safe. A place where life is simple and quiet, and a place where I could finish my senior year of high school unscathed. Abernathy, Texas was my second home, and my grandparents were the parents I aways wanted. There was no one around this one horse town to complicate my life any further, or at least that's what I thought. That was, until I met Madison Raine.

He held the power to turn my peaceful escape upside down and inside out with just one look. He was beautiful, in every sense of the word and with that beauty, came trouble. There were a million reasons why I should stay away from him, but none of them seemed to matter when I caught sight of those emerald green eyes. It was becoming clear that staying away from Madison would be harder than I had anticipated.

A past like mine never fully disappears, until you find yourself faced with the irreparable truth that sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands, consequences be damned.

Kayla James (KJ) was everything I never knew I wanted. This was the last summer I would be on the farm before I headed off to college, and meeting her was the last thing I expected. I didn't know what had brought her here, and I honestly didn't care. I had my own things to deal with and a relationship wasn't one of them. Little did I know that this girl, would wind up being exactly what I needed in every way possible.

Life hasn't always been easy, and telling my grandparents that I was going to college in another state was going to be the death of me, but it was something I needed to do. I needed a life outside of Texas, one where no one knew who I was or what I had lost. Between baseball and my band, I thought I had it made.

All it took was one look into those baby blues and I was a goner. I ended up needing her like I needed air to breathe, and everything inside of me wanted to be with her regardless of the outcome. How do you choose between love and life, and convince the one person who trusts no one, to take a chance on you?

This is book #1 of three in The Raine Series. It contains mature language and situations

*******

This book nearly brought me to tears in the first damn chapter. I hated even going on, but it was worth it.

Kayla had basically had the shit life handed to her with a druggie boyfriend and mother. But what happens before she leaves to go her grandparents house to live. She deals with something that is so horribly nasty that I can't even begin to tell you. (must read to find out sorry gals/guys).

Madison and his grandpa are the one's to pick her up from the bus station and he is so drawn to her, but see's her as one of many screwed up girls he's come along.

They end up having a spot they keep finding themselves at and love grows from their. It's not perfect but its theirs and theirs alone. They have choices to make and obsticle's in the way not to mention age old broken friendships that seem to get in the way of  happiness.

This is a series I absolutely adore because it speaks of high school/college/rock star youth that can't seem to end. This is a 3 book series so suck it up and buy the damn books because its so worth it!
