Oops
The Year We Hid Away - Sarina Bowen

This is the 2nd book in The Ivy Years series.  This book can be read as a standalone.  With all that this series has to offer, I would recommend reading this series in order.  This way you avoid spoilers, and get more out of the series itself.

 

Scarlet has had all she can take and then some.  The past year has pushed her in places she never thought she would go.  Now back at school, she just wants to get her education.

 

Bridger understands sacrifice all to well.  He finds himself while learning to love the amazing woman Scarlet has become.  Only secrets from their pasts coming like a whirlwind towards them can keep them apart.  

 

This story happens at such a ferociously fast pace.  It is a sweet and yet sexy story, where two very lonely people come together and find that love can reach you in a very dark place.  I love the character development we get to read while it happens.  I also think the banter is just amazing.  Another win for both the series and the author.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
