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 **
I have always loved Corinne's work. This is a brand new book with brand new people. So different from all her other work. I wasn't sure what to expect from it. What I got quickly blew me away while making me sob. I wanted nothing more than to yell at Corinne for not having this book with her in DC when I met her. I have always loved her other series. This one though took the TOP spot for me.
What started out with such heartbreak and tear's soon turned to a story of hope. I had tear's in my heart throughout the whole book while hoping that this strong women would be able to rebuild her life. The strength that came through is something that gives you hope. I was transported to this world. I felt the heartbreak, the love, the anger and everything inbetween. I devoured this book in a matter of hours. I could not put it down. If you want a book that will make you ugly cry while making you laugh this is the book for you. I loved loved loved it and cant tell you enough of good things about it. The book is different from all her other works that you will have to double check that it is from Corinne.
To Corinne: I LOVED your dedication in the book. I have said the same thing as you did! THANK you for that.

“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.
