Wanting You - Review


Wanting You

By: Ryan Michelle




Book Synopsis:
Savannah 'Vann' Kelly knows the pain that love can bring, whether from family or a love lost. Being ripped from her home and forced to leave behind her boyfriend, has caused an ache she's unsure will ever heal.

Five years later, Vann is back. While her day job is kept secret from most, the threat it poses throws her entire world off balance, putting her and those closest to her in danger.

Deke Sullivan’s life has been in a tailspin ever since his brother’s death. Everyone in his life has either betrayed or left him, making him who he is today. But behind his tough persona is still the man that craves the woman who left him all those years ago. One look into those blue-gray eyes sends his heart into overdrive, anger pulsating through him.

Can Deke move past the hurt? Will what became of Vann's life after she left cause greater tragedy? Can first love prevail?

**Please note. This book is for mature audiences only. It contains very sexually explicit material, including a non-consensual sexual scene.**

This has to be every author's worst nightmare........
Savannah or Vann as she likes to be referred to was forced by her mother to move away from the only people that mattered while she was in high school. Now that she is a successful author she has decided to return 'home' back to her two best friends, hergram and the one boy who she never forgot.
Deke is use to loss. He never imagined having to lose Vann though. She had always been his one solid rock through all the struggles. One day he gets home to a letter stating she had to leave... of course, he is angry and mostly devastated. How do you cope when you lose the one person that means the most to you?
The connection between Deke and Vann is amazing. You can feel it from the moment they finally lay eyes on each other again after 5 years of being apart. They aren't the same teenagers anymore and have been trying to fill a void that left them both empty when Vann was moved to California. Deke isn't aware that Vann is moving back so of course when he sees her there is anger there from feeling abandoned all those years ago. He could have handled the situation better because you know deep down how much he cares for her.
Their story is full of ups and downs. There is amazing chemistry and passion between them but at the same time there is so much hurt from the past that feelings gets mixed. On top of that, Vann is hiding a secret that will eventually be revealed. Needless to say I wasn't expecting all the 'players in the game' to be who they were.  
This book was enjoyable, well written and I loved their story.... definitely would read again.
