You know how the story goes. Don’t you?

Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.

Not this story.

Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.

I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us, ripping us apart, and forever turned in to never.

He was gone. I was left to pick up the shredded pieces. Punished for the life inside me I couldn’t give up. The very thing I didn’t know would bring me out of darkness years later, could be the very thing that brings us together again for a second chance.

If we can only survive the ripple effects of the pain of the past and what lies ahead…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story will be one of my favorite stories off all times. To say that I ugly cried and was one hot mess over it is an understatement of the year.
You know when you start reading a book and just don’t want to continue reading it because you know what’s coming and what will it do to you but you keep going?

My heart was breaking with everything that has happened to Lacey. This woman had something unthinkable happened to her and she somehow managed to pick herself up and carry on against all odds.

»I see you. I see who you are. You are not a victim anymore. Your are a strong, capable, compassionate women, with a strength I couldn’t even imagine having.«

I hated Landon for not staying with her. As the story begins to unfold you get to hear his side and why he did what he did but still….I’m lost for words and I’m sure this review will not make much sense but this is one heartbreaking, wonderful (despite off all the ugly that happened at the begging) story that is the testament that true love can’t stay apart no matter what and can conquer all.
»Please. Take a chance on me and step out on faith that I would never hurt you intentionally. Faith that my love for you runs deep as the love for my son. Please.«

This might sound strange to read but a part of me wishes that I never read this book. It’s just that powerful. Since I have Kindle I never bought paperback but this will be my exception.

5 brilliant stars!!!

  I smooth my hand across his chest in the early dawn, knowing it’s almost time for this to be over. He has to leave soon. I press my lip over his heart, where my name is scrolled.  “Why did you never get rid of it?”

“Why would I?” His sleep-roughened voice rumbles through his chest, wakening my senses in a curl of sensual need. “I didn’t want to erase you from my life. It would be like erasing a part of my soul.” 

He knows exactly what to say, as if he has a direct line leading straight to my heart. I shake my head. “You say these things—” 

“That I mean.” He rakes his fingers through the hair at the back of my head, pulling my face closer to his. “I’ve never lied to you about my feelings for you. Why would I start now? No one has ever touched me like you do, Lacey.”

“That the truth?” I ask, feeling the answer in the direct line he has to my heart. He nods, kissing me tenderly, pulling my body half over his so I feel the rising need for me in his body. 

Parting my thighs, I straddle his hips, deepening the kiss I can tell he wants to keep light and gentle, but I know he wants more as much as I do.
