HOLY SHIT!!What an amazing and heart ripping ride. This book made me feel shit loads of emotions. I wanted to smile. I wanted to cry. I wanted to scream. It is a dark but heartwarming read. It has everything that I love in a book, romance, suspense, drama, heartbreaking twists, mind blowing and intense chemistry, a damn hot alpha, a respectably strong heroine, one of the cutest child in the history of books and some amazing supporting characters.

"Cut Wide Open" introduces the readers to Charlie and Gunner. The story starts with an eight years old Charlie, living with her shitty foster parents. She is sad and broken after all that she went through and prefers the shadows more than the light. She is quite obsessed with the boy living next door that is gunner. She sees him everyday playing and enjoying. As the story proceeds, it covers different stages of their life. Teen Gunner and Charlie were hopelessly in love with each other when suddenly everything changes and he leaves her.
The story takes a time leap and we again meet Charlie who is working as a stripper to support herself and her son Jr. gunner and Gunner who is the president of bleeding scars MC. But when they finally meet hell breaks loose and they are again torn apart.
I don't want to spoil the entire plot so I'm not giving away much and revealing the plot further. But believe me it's worth reading. It's just so amazing. I'm having a book hangover.
It was sweet and dark at all the right places. My heart broke for Charlie. Life was just so cruel to her. What she suffered was so heart ripping but she fought to live and find her happily ever after. I felt so invested in Gunner and Charlie's story I felt like i was living it right along with them. All in all this was a definite hit for me and I highly recommend this book.
