Trish Grant is not a romantic. Okay, so she may read her share of romance novels, but that doesn’t mean she thinks that some fellow with a six pack is going to ride up on a horse and sweep her (literally) off her feet. Romance like that just isn’t for her. It belongs on the page.

Max Jackson noticed Trish at his cousin’s funeral, of all places. She was hard to miss with her citrus-colored hair, violet contacts and fiery attitude.

Trish was just as captivated by Max. He makes her laugh, which is rare, and it doesn’t hurt that he rocks blue hair and the most killer smirk that drives her crazy. Max is there for her during a rough time and even if she wanted to, she can’t shake him.

There are things about Trish that Max doesn’t know, and she’s not going to tell him. She hasn’t told anyone and doesn’t plan on it, thank you very much. But when Trish’s life is ripped apart by a dark piece of her past, will she let Max in? Or will she give up her potential fairytale to protect her already-scarred heart from further damage?

Together We Heal is book 4 in the Rise and Fall series. Although you can read it as a stand alone, it will be a better reading experience if you read the whole series to get better understanding as to what is going on, because this one jumps right into the story with no real back story. Since I read the other books a while ago, I had to go back to my past reviews  to see what I was forgetting. 

This is Trish and Max's story. To say that Trish is a little messed up in an understatement. She has had a rough life. Her parents cooked meth in her basement and never really cared for her. She is lucky because her brother was more like her parent. He raised her and now he is having his ever after with his girlfriend (their story continues here which was a nice treat). 

Trish and Max have this weird relationship. Max is in love with Trish, but Trish is not sure she can handle a normal relationship. She has some things she is keeping secret from Max and doesn't know if when she shares them with him, he will still be there for her. 

I really loved Max. He has to be a good guy. Trish, I knew it was gonna be a hard sell for me to like her. I have to say... her secret wasn't life shattering. While it was different, I wasn't really feeling it. 

This book was a ok read for me. My favorite in this series is still the Deeper We Fall book.
