From the Author
This is a love story through and through. It's a story of abrother's unfailing love for his twin. It's a story of a girl's fight to get hersister back and find herself at the same time. It's a story of learning to letgo of anger, standing up for yourself, and being kind to others. It's a storyof love between a man and a woman despite the twists and turns that come theirway.
This story came about after a year or so of watching abrother take care of his special-needs sibling during church service. Iwondered about that brother's feelings toward his sibling. Love was obvious.Protector was clear. Burdened? It didn't appear that way. Guilty? Possibly.Nicky doesn't have the severe special needs that this sibling had, but Nickyfaces his own challenges in life.
I also wrote this story because I despise bullying and ther-word. I wanted to share with my readers how painful and damaging both bullyingand the word retard/retarded can be. I want my readers to finish this book witha better understanding of how words and actions can hurt. Or, maybe, my readerswill finish this book with affirmation that the words and actions used againstthem did hurt and they have the right to feel upset by them.
I wrote this story for many reasons. My main reason is toshare the story with my readers. I want nothing more than for you to enjoy thisstory and feel a range of emotions from start to finish. If that happens, I cansay I accomplished what I set out to do.

I did enjoy this story and I am a big fan of dual POV’s, and with this book you get four POV’s! We get the chance to hear from all the main characters in the book, Nicky, Nate, Elizabeth and Audrey (whom I do not like). You will not get confused as to which character is speaking as the name was listed at the beginning of each chapter.
Elizabeth Decker and Audrey Decker are two sisters who are nothing alike, no thanks to Audrey and her bullying ways. Nathaniel Morgan and his twin brother Nicholas Morgan are the best of friends and Nathaniel will not tolerate the bullying of Nicholas.
Elizabeth and Nathaniel finally meet with the urging of Nicky. I liked these two, as they are dealing with real-life everyday issues. You have self-doubt, lack of communication, bullying, cheating, issues with mentally handicapped people, rape, love, drugs, and last but not least learning on how to forgive. There are many, many issues that we readers can relate to in one way or another. There are sweet and tender moments and then there are ugly and hard truths.
There were only two things that I didn’t like about this book. One, there was way too much description in this story. I didn’t really need to have every inch of every room described, sometime less is more. The second item was about that rape that takes place. They way everyone handled it was odd to me. She should’ve be held accountable for her crime and at least punished, but that is just my two cents worth.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the Torey Hope series!
Watching the attraction towards one another break down walls of the beliefs they both felt they needed to maintain for them to survive the lives they had built taking care of the family they loved. Both of them had sacrificed for their family to take care of them putting their own lives on hold without a second thought to themselves. When they meet neither one of them are prepared for the intensity of the attraction they feel for one another and the days following have them wanting to take the chance to commit just a little more than they had ever done before in their lives.
I found this book to be one where I did not want to stop reading, but wanted to keep turning the page even when there were no more to turn.
Great message overall! Nate has spent his life standing up for his "differently abled" twin brother, Nicky, typically with his fists. When a new teacher at the community center befriends Nicky, Nate decids he needs to get to know her and make sure she is truly interested in helping Nicky. Elizabeth has been viciously picked on and manipulated by her younger sister, Audrey, her whole life. Their family life went to hell when their mom died when they were younger and Audrey has been over the top on just about every level since then. Elizabeth is happy for the first time in a long time when she lands the perfect job in the small community of Torey Hope. After meeting Nate and feeling judged by him, the two start to feel each other out romantically...and then Audrey happens. OMG, this girl is so awful. After several misunderstandings and an awful vengeful act by Audrey the two are left wondering if they can overcome the trauma and make their relationship work or if they are meant to go their separate ways.
Great message about kindness, bullying, and respect for others with disabilities or just different abilities. Writing was overly descriptive at times but thought out. Will be interesting to read Audrey's book!

Enjoy :) x
Nate Libby Nick Audrey and all the family...wow

Just loved the ending.
phew what a beautiful storyx
Viele finden vielleicht die unvorhergesehene Ereignisse fesselnd, mir kam es mehr so vor, als ob die Autorin sich immer wieder etwas Neues aus den Fingern gesogen hat, um das Buch in die Länge zu ziehen.
Wie gesagt, das Potenzial war da, aber die Umsetzung war einfach nichts für mich.
