A few things that bugged me:
- I didn't like how the hero lived with another woman for years then dumped her as soon as the heroine came back. Even though she was made out to be a bitch, she couldn't have been so bad since the hero says he was in love with her. A sad kind of love since he dumped her pretty fast with so little angst.
- the hero is made out to be such a big jerk for dumping the heroine and breaking her heart in the past. But when the details are given she's the one that told him to go. I get that she was hurt, but I didn't feel that he deserved the huge amount of blame and resentment that she showed him.
- Also the big drama at the end was annoying. Why was he so angry?
You will feel every emotion. Celebrate the joys of life and love, sink in the misery of depression and despair. Read this book. It's one of the best love stories I have read. I'm so excited that this series will be continuing to follow some secondary characters. There's a lot more to be told, and a lot more life to live.
“…life is a gamble. You played your cards and lost. Doesn’t make you a loser. Means you need to find a new dealer.”
I am a sucker for second chance romance, it is one of my favourite tropes. There are always those instances of reminiscing of the one that got away, but what happens when you get a second chance? Sometimes the past is too painful and there is no hope of going back, but sometimes, those old feelings come back and you cannot help but fall head over heels all over again, especially when “the one” was your first love.
“How can two people remember the same thing so differently?”
Corinne Michaels is known for her emotional, angsty, romantic reads but never before have I been hit with such an emotional impact as the first part of this book. Corinne Michaels takes no prisoners with her introduction to her characters and I cried a river in the beginning. So much so, I had to take a breather. I found myself thinking, well if this is the start…what the hell have I got coming? Needless to say though, it is not like that throughout the book, but such was the intensity of the beginning, it really gave you a feel for our heroine’s story and situation. My heart went out to her and her boys.
Presley had her perfect life in the city, a business she loved, a husband she loved and two wonderful twin boys. One day she comes home from work and her life is destroyed. Everything she thought she knew was a lie, now alone, penniless and desperate, Presley is forced to go back home, to the ranch in Tennessee where she was brought up by her parents and her brother. A ranch that she never thought she would return to, much less live on and a place that had many great memories, but one god awful one and his name was Zachary Hennington.
“We were so stupid to think we could have it all and it would cost us nothing. Life doesn’t care if you’re in love, there’s always a price for happiness, we were just unwilling to pay.”
Presley and Zachary were in the “IT” couple in school, everyone wanted to be them and were jealous of the intense love that they had found with each other at such a young age. They were the forever couple, the whole town thought they would be together till death us do part, until they weren’t. Now, years later, with a marriage and kids under her belt Presley is in no emotional state to be reminded of what she lost, but Zach is back too and it was only a matter of time before their paths crossed once again.
“He breaks me apart. He puts me together. He’s my poison and my antidote…for the first time since…I feel safe. And that’s not a good thing to feel in Zach’s arms.”
Presley and Zachary’s love was never in doubt, their relationship failed because life, circumstances and situations took their lives in different directions even though the ultimate destination was their grand prize. These two were young and naïve to an extent and made choices that they would later come to regret but by that time their new paths had been laid. As with any relationship there are misunderstandings and miscommunications but nothing too dramatic, but will they give the other the chance to explain?
This was more than a second chance romance, this was a test of strength, resilience and determination for Presley, this was a new start, with new foundations and she had to find the strength to build once again. Presley’s character is tested throughout but she is surrounded by people that love her and are determined to keep her head above water and most of all, living.
“…I don’t think we’re doing anything too fast. I think we’re just finding our way back to where we always were meant to be.”
I loved the relationships on the ranch and with the Hennington’s, yes there are more than one Hennington and Wyatt, Zach’s brother was a hoot and totally adorable and I cannot wait for his book, but I digress… This was a small town, everyone knew everyone and of course everyone’s business, but they looked out for their own. The relationship that Zach grew with Presley’s boys was heart-warming and would make even the toughest, coldest hearts melt. The way the boys were taken under everyone’s wings gave a true sense of family values and friendships.
“Face it, Pres. I’m the yin to your yang.” ~ Wyatt
“You’re the s**t on my shoes.” ~ Presley
“I’m the bread to your butter,” ~ Wyatt
“You’re the pain in my a$$.” ~ Presley
Yes, this book was emotional, yes it was a little angsty, yes I cried a river quite a few times but most of all I felt love and happiness throughout. I never doubted these two as a couple, I was itching for them to unveil all their skeletons and move past their past, it takes time, it takes a lot of work, it takes a lot of trust but they get there. Corinne Michael’s really delivered on all those emotions that I crave and her character connection was on point. She delivered Zach and Presley’s story with poignancy and passion. Their love was palpable and radiated through the pages and I couldn’t help but frantically read to get to the conclusion I was so desperate for. The growth in Corinne Michaels writing is prevalent throughout and with each story she hones her craft. This was an unputdownable read for me and now I am anxiously awaiting Wyatt’s story, it cannot come soon enough.
“You and me, Presley. You and me. I’ll give you the world.”
