Book Description
(From Goodreads)

The first installment of The Atonement Series.

Deirdre Bardot is a PhD student at Harvard and on her way home for Thanksgiving when she finds out her father has been murdered in a vicious hit and run by a drunk driver.

Forced to piece her life together after such a traumatic event, Deirdre moves back to Seattle to be closer to her younger sister, Caitlyn, and their mother.

When her psychiatrist, Dr. van der Meer, suggests she needs to get away from it all and take a vacation, her best friend decides to introduce her to a friend of his who has more or less the same idea. Colin is perfect: he's good looking, self-deprecating and sexy as hell but he also happens to be the Dr. van der Meer's son.

Deirdre finds herself falling hard for a guy she barely knows and one who is equally into her as she is into him. They decide a trip to Western Europe together is the perfect way to get to know one another a whole lot better.

Then an unspeakable and random act of violence occurs one night and Colin realizes he is forced to reveal a secret to Deirdre he has been hiding...a secret that is breaking him, and in doing so to free his conscience, he just might destroy the relationship he has created with Deirdre and lose her forever.

My Review
(Thanks to the Author for providing a Review Copy)
This was a good story that definitely had a lot of components, including intrigue. In the beginning, there's the introduction of, really, all the main characters. We read from the main character's POV: Deirdre, throughout the whole novel. I think she's a believable character at times, but I thought there was just a bit more conversation between characters, more than I'm usually used to. I think the concept of taking a European trip was interesting and I think it did bond the soon to be lovers, Deirdre and Colin. I can tell right from the beginning, that Colin was keeping a secret from Deirdre, and you'll definitely know what it is, by the end of the story, and towards the end, it does make you question, if this couple will make it as a couple in the second book, so that will be an intense read. 

My Rating: 3.5/5
Definitely R-Rated (Strong Mature Content; 18+)
