The girl with an innocent heart knows all about bad choices, but has yet to make them for herself. Searching for freedom, she finds it in the delinquent down the hall.

She’s his reason, but he might not catch her when she falls.
She loves him. He loves her crazy.
This is what happens when a love made of secrets is kept with rules instead of promises.
My Bliss and Dusty:
* 5 STARS * Review:
"I know he loves me. I never doubt his love. I doubt his intentions and respect. I distrust his motives and allegiance. Love? I smother in dictating love. He’s loves traitor." - Bliss
Innocents is a story that will give you butterflies and make you feel all kinds of emotions. It’s a story that will grab your hearts, lift them up and then crush them. It’s difficult read, heavy on angst and definitely not for a faint-hearted. But most importantly, Innocents is the story that readers will never forget!
"Love is a fighting a losing battle."
In this book, Bliss and Dusty went from friendship, through secret young love to obsessive teenage love. Innocents is about the strongest of loves, about hurt and heartbreak, about lies and broken promises, about being emotionally dependant on someone and being unable to let go...
This novel is full of interesting and thoughtfully crafted characters, but Dusty definitely stands out. He lies, deceives and keeps up the pretense. He is temperamental and he always looks for the easy way out. He is not the most lovable hero, yet he earned my sympathies. He is just a messed up boy with good heart, seeking true love but going about it the wrong way. I so cannot wait to see what exactly is in store for Dusty and Bliss in the sequel - Delinquents!
"Love turns blind eye. And it's unpredictable."
I have to admit, that this is the first book in which I didn’t root for main couple to stay together, yet I loved this book to the pieces. Why? Answer is truly simple. The writing. It was lyrical, poetical and beautiful. It was perfect and flawless, I cannot praise it enough. Kudos to authors for creating this epic story. If you are not against reading raw, depressive and realistic story, definitely go for this one, I recommend it from bottom of my heart!
