Eva Bennett might be known for her candid approach and sharp tongue, but on the inside she’s still a vulnerable twenty-four year old who’s sick of kissing toads and being habitually single.
Full of comical one-liners and wielding a charming smile, Sawyer Keeton is more than meets the eye. After the news of his brother’s tragic death, however, Sawyer is pulled into a place filled with crippling emotions and pain—a place no one can seem to reach him…until the moment Eva steps into his life.
A twist of fate will bring them together and then tear them apart, forcing the two to learn there are people in life whom you cherish and pray will never forget you.
While Eva is incredibly gorgeous, she’s also very blunt in the things that she says. I myself was first introduced to Eva while writing Control You, she was Cam’s best friend who didn’t take any shit off him or anyone. I loved that about her. She’s very cynical and sarcastic at times, but she has her reasons for that. Her childhood wasn’t all rainbows and pretty pictures.
Eva’s mother was an adict who overdosed when she was six, because she never knew who her father was, she was slipped into the foster system shortly after. Being raised by strangers who mistreated her and broke promises molded her into someone who doesn’t give their heart away easily. Sawyer somehow finds a way to break through all of that in a humorious, sweet way, giving her hope that someone as broken as herself can find a lasting love.
Four Facts About Eva:
* She hates pet names for people.
* Pumpkin Spice coffee is her favorite flavor.
* She loves Ernest Hemingway quotes. It’s something her and Cam share in common.
* She wanted Sawyer from the first moment she laid eyes on him, but she would never admit to that out loud.
(This is Eva’s take on all the single guys at a party she attends.)
I counted all the assholes in the room, and decided in an instant the ratio of nice guys to jerks wasn’t in my favor tonight.
Sawyer Keeton is the type of guy you want to hang around just to hear all the hilarious things that come from his mouth at random. He’s a one-liner master. While Eva first thought he was an arrogant ass, she realizes soon that she was incredibly wrong. Sawyer isn’t full of himself, he’s just charming. Even with a sense of humor like he has, he still manages to be super sweet at all times.
He’s an active member of the National Guard and absolutely loves the sense of duty that comes from it. Sawyer goes wherever he is needed and takes pride in being there.
It’s while he’s away for training that his older brother tragically passes. This is something that breaks Sawyer completely, forcing him to become obsessed with the big question of why. Why his brother was was taken so soon? Why no one was was there to help him? It’s Eva who unknowingly makes him forget his sadness for brief moments at a time. This is why he needs to know her. In his mind, Eva is the beautifully sarcastic girl who relieves him from his inner pain.
Four Facts about Sawyer:
* He drives his brother’s car, because he can’t bring himself to think of anyone else being behind its wheel.
* He has two script tattoos, and lives by them every day.
* He loves to ride his dirt bike.
* The very first thing he noticed about Eva was her incredibly colored eyes.
(Hands down it would have to be Sawyer’s philosophy on wrapping Christmas presents.)
“Wrap it like it’s a diaper. As long as it keeps the shit in, that’s all that matters.”
