It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.
That was seventeen years ago.
I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.
Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.
This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .
** This book is a STANDALONE **

In the opening chapters of this book, Presley sees her life go from being settled and happy to then just being turned upside down. I don’t think my heart has ever been that broken in the opening stages of a book. I literally wanted to hug her pain away. I could feel her heart breaking as things were slowly being revealed. Her two beautiful boys were breaking me too. I don’t think I stopped crying for a good 30% of this book. It literally did just break my heart.
She goes back to Tennessee where she meets the guy that got away. Zachary Hennington. I swear I wanted to be Presley. His mouth is sinful and he is literally so in love with her. Head over heels in love with her.
As you find out what happened to them all those years ago, you get to see Presley change as a person she learns to stand on her own two feet. This book is about her finding herself again. She realises that she is worthy of love. She is allowed to be happy and she is in control of that happiness.
I’ve moved on in some ways, but Presley… she’s everything. She’s the reason I haven’t been able to move forward in my life. I’ve tried to live, love again, but it never compared. She fucking ruined me.
Presley and Zach both have a journey to go through and I like the way it happened. It was hard but they’re the reason they can keep on living and I love it. Their happiness makes all those years apart worth it. They’re meant to be and I truly truly believe that. I am forever going to be in love with these characters.
5 Epic Stars!
“Hey.” Zach peers at me as I shake off my thoughts. “I figured you’d be asleep.” He climbs the steps slowly as I get to my feet.
“I figured you’d be gone.”
I walk toward him, unsure of why he’s here. “I left for a bit, but wanted to come check on you.”
He snickers. “I couldn’t sleep.”
“Me either.” He’s close enough that I can smell his cologne. Even after a long night, being in the woods, he smells like home.
I take another step.
I’m so close I have to tilt my head to look into his eyes.
I breathe him in, feel his heat, and I can’t stop myself. I want him. I need him. I grip his neck and yank his mouth to mine. I kiss him. I kiss him and give in to everything I’ve been feeling. He doesn’t waste a second. His arms wrap around me, holding my body against his. My fingers grip his neck, keeping him exactly where I need him. This kiss is frantic, but God it feels good.
