What if the world didn’t want you to go straight? Out on parole after almost ten years in prison, Emet First is repairing his shattered life. He has friends, a job, and his first date in a decade. The young woman, Mercedes Finch, is lovely but wounded. When her deranged brother learns about Emet’s past, he will stop at nothing to destroy him—and suddenly Emet has everything to lose.

Hey! Here's my review.

A quick, easy read, with depth.

I liked Emet. He was an honest and likable character with a positive outlook. I enjoyed the anecdotal stories that came out through the main character's interaction with other characters in the book. I loved the way the budding romance progressed sweetly, without being overloaded with angst.

I think the author dealt with issues of various types of abuse in a realistic manner. It made me stop and think about how lonely it would be to be stuck in prison and forgotten about by friends and family. 

I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
