Stubborn Love by Wendy Owens

Title: Stubborn love
Author: Wendy Owens
Genre: NA Contemporary romance

Even a broken heart has trouble resisting a Stubborn Love.

Emmie Hayes loved the beautiful Ashton Stirling deeply; nobody could deny that. She had given him her youth, and all he gave in return was misery and pain. She was ready for a new beginning, but Ashton wasn’t about to let her go so easily, even if it meant destroying both their lives in the process.

Three years later Emmie convinces herself she is ready to leave all of that heartbreak in the past and find a little piece of normal for herself. She heads to New York City to pick up where she left off, determined to finish art school. Emmie is determined to focus on school and not let anything distract her, but life has a way of throwing curveballs.

Paige, Emmie’s new roommate, brings Colin Bennett into her life. His smoldering eyes and lean muscular body are difficult for any girl to ignore. Only thing is, Emmie isn’t any girl. Her past makes her resistant to his charms. Colin isn’t one to give up easily, and just when he thinks he may have found a way to her stubborn heart, her tragic history may have found a way to tear them apart.
Whoa, Wendy Owens brought a different game to my reading world with Stubborn Love!
Im not lying when i say she had me at the Prologue. Emmie Hayes is my sister, my friend and in some cases myself. Its a view on the inside of a torn sole. With physical and mental abuse it starts slowly and when you find the strength to leave, its only the beginning of the healing of those scars. 
As Emmie finds her way to New York, art school and a new journey. Small town girl meeting the big city is almost always an eye opener, the grind, sarcasm and thick skin of New York is nothing compared to Colin Bennett.

Emmie has no choice but to face her demons, the question can Colin make it through this journey?

I loved this book, sucked in from the first word, and excited for part two in this series.
