She was the one for me.
The one that I knew would be mine forever until I made the biggest mistake. I pushed her away and I’ve regretted that decision ever since. I’ve tried to move on, tried
to put the memory of her behind me, but she’s always consuming my thoughts.
Now, she’s back in our hometown, trying to rebuild a new life. I know she’s keeping secrets. She tries to hide them from me, and I will do whatever it takes to prove that I’m the one she needs.
Because Shelby Ross is the other part of me that I can’t live without and I refuse to let her go again.
He broke my heart.
I never thought I would be able to pick up the pieces he left behind. When he let me go, I ran away from it all, thinking it was the easiest thing to do. But, running has a price and I’ve paid it in full for years. Now, I’m back where it all began, back to putting my life together and starting over. It should’ve been easy, but Carter Harlow is reawakening
long buried emotions that I thought were gone.
He wants to make me his again. I can’t let that happen. He ruined me, broke me, and I’m afraid I’ll never survive it a second time around.
I also genuinely liked the story. I love stories where people find love, lose it (for whatever reason), and then have to face their mistakes in order to find their way back. I’m even okay if they DON’T make their way back. When a story reflects real life is when I get hooked. I like stories that are messy, characters that make me angry, and events that don’t always go to plan.
The story, though, seemed to have some gaps. I know that an author doesn’t always choose certain details to be as important as I’d like them to be, but there just seemed to be some parts of the story that were … lacking. The story itself was good, but some paths of the storyline, I felt, could’ve more complete. That being said, I don’t think the story really suffered. And because this is the first of the Harlow brothers books, there could likely be follow-ups to some of these paths in future works.
I quite enjoyed this story and cannot wait to read more about the Harlow brothers!
