For Olivia Adams, the world has always been too big or too small.
Forced to live her life caught between what she wanted for herself and the unfair choices and crazy obsession of those around her for as long as she could remember, Ollie has always felt confined and trapped. It was hard for her to imagine a future beyond the crushing control of those who wanted to make sure she paid the price for her role in a tragic accident that ruined several young lives. However, having no hope and living in a constant state of fear never stopped Ollie from dreaming of different ways to break free and how to reunite with the one person who always made her feel safe. Huck is the only one who ever made her feel like there was a place in his world, right by his side, that would fit her just right.
The world has always forced Huck Snyder to be a guy who runs either too hot or too cold.
Unwanted and barely tolerated, his temper burned hot and bright, often leading him into trouble. After the accident, he was tossed out, disowned, and forced to fend for himself. Struggling to survive, Huck quickly realized the only way he would make it was to freeze out every single memory and moment from his past. Especially those surrounding Ollie. He allowed his heart to harden into a block of ice and refused to let anyone close enough to melt it. Years have passed, and Huck has adjusted to the constant cold that permeates through his new life. He was in no way prepared for the only girl who could ever control his inner fire to show back up. Ollie is on the run and doesn’t seem to mind the chilly reception she receives when she shows up unannounced on Huck’s doorstep.
Fire and ice no longer define Huck because when he’s with Ollie, it’s easy to remember that the temperature between the two of them has always been just right.
When pain shapes your life, the heart becomes hardened to anything that inspires love. For Ollie – the pain comes from the knowledge that she hurt the person she loved so deeply. This was the catalyst that fueled Ollie to prove to Huck that her soul was full of regret.
Huck was entitled and torn over the past. What he didn’t realize was that nothing was the way he perceived it to be. The things Huck thought he knew were incorrect. Now – he was determined to keep Ollie safe. That determination fueled Huck to break through the sorrow and shame. To fight for Ollie in a way that showed her the depth of love.
Nothing for this duo is as it seems. Destruction is lurking, but who is at the bottom of it all? Jay Crownover has once again tackled a unique story plot that will balance love and revenge. Goldilocks is the culmination of that journey for Huck and Ollie. Discover that journey…..one of hope, love and the search for that happy ending.
