Forget everything you know about happily-ever-afters…

Sawyer, tattooed and rebellious, intended to stay numb until graduation.

He had never been more captivated or terrified.
She never saw him coming. 

Six weeks was all it took to fall in love.
Then he was gone…
Six years later their lives collide again.

Can forgiveness and faith restore what was broken in those years of absence? Or will the dark secrets buried inside one another destroy their second chance at love?

What happens when the one who ruined you is woven into your soul? How can dreams appear to come true only to twist into nightmares?

Though they ache for the happy ending to their fairytale, fate may have something else planned.

My goodness!  I was not ready for the tears this one brought to me.  The synopsis is vague enough that you will not see what is coming.  Just an absolutely heart wrenching story of love and loss and love and loss.  What does it take to forgive the ones we love the most?  What acts are completely unforgivable?   

This is Sawyer and Lachlan's tale.  The road is curving and detoured.  The story is familiar at first---girl from the wrong side of the tracks falls for the golden boy who can do no wrong.  But that familiar feel ends as the story moves forward.  

My feelings are all over the place on how to rate this book.  The writing is spot on.  The characters are interesting and well developed.  The ending frustrated me so much!  Not that is wasn't the right way to end but it's under my skin now and a bit irritating.  I'm not happy about it and that's ok.  I think the author meant for us to have a revelation.  Some thoughts on life and what makes us happy. 

Give this one a shot.  There is a second book that will be from Sawyer's brother's viewpoint.  Should add another layer to what we already know.  Also should be worth the read.

Jessica Gouin hates talking about Jessica Gouin. Especially in the third person.

I’m a fairly normal person from Windsor, Ontario. I was born here, grew up here, met my hubs here, and had my children here. I really couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

More than anything, I love watching my children grow every day. They amuse the hell out of me. I swear they were sent to earth to provide my life with comedic relief. My babies (I say babies, but they’re 5 and 8, still and forever will be babies, am I right?), and my husband, are the reasons why I get up every morning and continue to fight the good fight.

When I’m not enjoying my mommy-life, I’m writing. Writing is my stress reliever. I go a little mad when I’m not creating an escape path for the characters in my head. I love, love, love to read. I’m a reader first, always have been. I try to branch and read all types of genres, but I always seem to come back to those epic love stories. I’m a sucker for a great kiss. When I need breaks from the literary world, I have a few shows that I watch with the hubs; The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Chicago Fire, and Grey’s Anatomy are my favs. I love rain storms, a good laugh, strong coffee, sleep, and anything with chocolate. I hate mean people, the outdoors, heights.

I genuinely become ecstatic when I receive a like on my Facebook page, or when someone reaches out to say they liked my books. So, thank you for stalking me because I love it!
