NOTE - This book is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary's. The book contains NO CHEATING.
Two years ago, Reed Jackson betrayed Calliope Thorne and broke her heart. So she stole his most prized possession – a white mustang – and drove it into the lake for revenge.
Now, Callie is stuck at a reform school while Reed is off at college, living his life without repercussions.
Until he comes back.
With him comes back all the feelings that Callie has been trying to bury: anger and heartbreak.
But most of all, desire. At the sight of his beautiful but lying lips and his gunmetal gray eyes that still taunt and smolder when he looks at her.
Whatever though. It’s not as if Callie is ever going to fall for her ex-boyfriend again. Or let him corner her in a bar one night and touch her, kiss her…
Neither is she going to kiss him back. Or worse, sleep with him.
Because that would make her naïve and foolish.
Oh, and also pregnant.
And there’s no way Callie is ever going to get pregnant at eighteen and with Reed’s baby, no less. The guy she hates.
The guy who taught her all about heartbreak. Who might look like a gorgeous hero but really is the villain of her story.

My Review 💋
“They say he’s got magic, dark magic, running through his veins. If a girl so much as looks into his pretty wolf eyes, no one can save her from falling for him. No one can save her from getting her heart broken either. Because he never falls. He is mighty. Everyone knows that. He’s a heartbreaker. A player.”

Plot Summary :
“My Roman. My gorgeous, gorgeous villain.”
Callie Thorne made a mistake two years ago. She trusted the wrong person. She gave her heart to the one man , a man with his animal eyes and black magic that made girls go crazy. The one who made her fall in love with him. Only to break her callously . Break her so thoroughly that she would always feel the pain of his actions. He taught her the first lesson of heartbreak and love all at once.
Reed Roman Jackson has always been the villain of her dreams and stories and now he is back. After sending her away two years ago , he was back. One glance at him , she knows that he still affects her. But this time things will be different. This time she will be immune to his magic and the hold he still has on her . She certainly won’t fall to her old habits. She won't go with him and get trapped in his world again. And she certainly won’t get pregnant with Roman’s baby. Because that would mean the end of everything. Her dreams. And the topic of what her brothers would say. Except all of this , becoming pregnant with the villain’s baby is what she does and now nothing will be the same.
Overall Opinion :
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
I have been WAITING FOR SOOOOOOOOOO LONG that I literally have a hard time accepting that I am done with this book! Especially after reading that bonus novella of callie and reed my heart went crazy for these two. I just knew that they are coming in hot and crazy and they are going to make me burn!! Which is exactly what this author did. This book by her is my most favourite read of all time.
“I can’t find joy in his misery. Maybe this is the curse of a brokenhearted girl. The curse of falling for a villain. If you love him once, you hurt for him forever.”
Callie is the sweetest girl of all time and she has always been under the protection of her brothers. Her brothers have been her whole family and there is no other way she would have it all. But there is one thing that makes her a bad sister. Falling for the enemy. The man who has always been the enemy of one of her brothers. Reed Roman jackson. The man whom she loves. The one who has no idea about her. There is no way she would fall for her? No way she would betray her brothers for one glance at her gorgeous villain? But that is what she does. She goes and falls for the villain , destroying everything in the process. Callie is the most amazing heroine ever. Her gentle characters and those sassy moments made me love her so much! She had this raw love for Reed that was always there no matter how much he hurt her. Her broken heart still beat for him no matter how much she hoped otherwise.
“All I’ve known is how to fight, how to go to war, how to win wars.”
Reed Roman Jackson is MY MAN!!! Capiche? He is mine. Period. He is literally the most perfect hero of all time. The one with the perfect looks and the perfect personality to go with it. His character is so amazingly defined in this book that I could feel myself falling for him everytime he made an appearance. He was just so broken that my heart hurt for him. So broken that the only thing he knew was to give hate and not receive any love. He didn’t know how to love and also didn’t know what to do when someone loved him. But if there was one thing he knew was saving his fairy. So that was what he was going to do now. Save his fairy and the only girl who ever had his attention. She didn’t know but he saw him even before she saw him. Their love was crazy and made me sob like a baby!! So amazing!
I have read everything by saffron and the ending of this book was the most emotional one for me. It made me laugh all the while giving me tears in my eyes. Those baby moments between reed and his baby , holy shit, my ovaries were not PREPARED!!! This book was the perfect package for me. The characters, the steam , the ending , the emotions and even the side characters. Name anything and yes this book has that and so much more! I even know the hero for the next book and you guys are NOT PREPARED!! There is so much more to cme and I can’t wait.
“You’ve pissed me the fuck off and now you’re going to pay for it. You understand what I’m saying to you? I’m going to make you pay for it. I’m going to make you cry.”
I AM LITERALLY SCREAMING , OKAY??? FREAKING SCREAMING THAT Y’ALL NEED TO PICK UP THIS BOOK AND READ IT. IT’s perfect. It’s saffron at her best and she is going to slay you!! JUST READ IT ALREADY!
