It began as a ruse.
Take a girlfriend. Divert the press from the fucked up mess that’s my family until my father is re-elected. Stage a public breakup. Move on.
Only that brilliant plan went straight south the moment I set eyes on Willow Blackwell.
I found her.
My center. My future. A soulmate with the will of a mule and the mouth of a harpy.
I now want things I never wanted before. Permanent kinds of things.
Only Fate—and her ex—have other plans for us.
In some sort of cosmic impossibility, our lives unknowingly intersected years before when tragedy befell both our families. Once the devastating truth is finally revealed, the future I’d found in her will come crashing down around us and for the first time in my life I’m completely helpless.
I may very well lose the only woman I’ve ever loved to a past neither of us saw coming.

As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.
Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

I like this cover. Hot guy. Great use of graphics. Bold text. Fairly good composition. Similar to book one so good unity within the series.
At the end of book one I was a bit on the fence on whether I would bother going on to read this one or not. I enjoyed book one, but it didn’t WOW as much as I expected it to. That said when this landed on my tablet I found myself curious to see how all these twists and turns and secrets would turn out and I am happy to report that I enjoyed this one IMMENSELY.
As I said in my review for book one this author has a very readable way of writing and book two was no different in that respect. Although this was another relatively long read I found the pace to be much better than the first. I was never bored or felt the need to skim. There was no OW drama. Some OM drama. A ton of angst. A whole lot of frustration and feels. Some hot sex scenes. Twists and turns. Interesting secondary characters. I need Noah to get a book..please? Pretty please with a cherry on top?? Both Willow and Shaw remained likable characters. I wanted to smack Willow a few times, but Shaw’s unwavering love and commitment went a long way to smooth my ruffled feathers.
Not much left to say at this point. I am glad I gave this one a chance. It exceeded my expectations and ended up being an enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Two thumbs up from yours truly.
