“That’s what unconditional love is. You don’t get to choose.”
My favourite Kahlen Aymes book and I never knew I could EVER be disloyal to the Remembrance Trilogy. Emotional, with fantastic characters and heart tugging dialogue, this book will have you crying and smiling throughout. Such a stunning story. The ultimate second chance romance, every heart string will be tugged, every emotion felt and one love that truly lasts a lifetime.
“Do you think the life I dreamed of, didn’t have her in it?”
First love and true love, a love so powerful, a soul mate connection, love that when it works its euphoric and when it doesn’t…soul destroying. The only love that transcends it, is the love you have for your child and Kahlen Aymes regales the reader with an emotional story about both. Ultimate sacrifices made, friendships tested, love, forgiveness, reconnection and one gorgeous little family.
Kahlen Aymes will have you running the gamut of emotions as her story navigates the trials and tribulations of a young family battling childhood leukaemia. Every mother’s worst nightmare and when nothing works, desperation kicks in, even if it means re-hashing a past that left you broken hearted.
While I did not agree with some of Teagan’s actions, they were made from the heart with the sincerest of intentions. Young, naïve and hopelessly in love, left to make the toughest decisions, it was inevitable some may not be the right ones.
“You made your choices, now we’re all paying the bill. You didn’t believe in me at all.”
Chase, the hero of the hour in more ways than one. A man that would do anything for the love of his life even after six years apart. A man that would cross the world based on a heart-felt text message, even though the woman requesting his help left him on the brink of destruction, his heart in tatters. His propensity to forgive is truly tested and it doesn’t come easy.
Kahlen Aymes truly delivers on the emotion with this story. My heart broke for everyone involved, I cried a river, my heart was battered and bruised, not only for the little girl undertaking the toughest battle of her life but for the three main characters whose connection and friendship will be truly tested. Some of the most heart-felt scenes were between Chase and his best friend Jensen. These two men totally owned my heart and the dialogue between them was full of emotion, truly powerful and two particular scenes that had my rapt attention and played out in vivid technicolour as if I was watching it on the big screen. Stunning writing.
“My choices were ignorant and careless of the possible consequences. Despite my noble intentions, despite all the other sh*t that happened that made it impossible to take it back or change it…”
This was a story of love and hope, friendships and forgiveness, honesty and integrity. Yes, it was angsty, yes, it is a meaty read, but the story speaks for itself. This is a relatively long book, but it didn’t read that way. From first to last page my attention was held throughout. The character connection was on point, the dialogue was perfect, but the moral of the story is what made this book a winner.
Kahlen Aymes always write a good book, but her first trilogy has always been my favourite, until now. As much as I love Ryan and Julia, Chase and Teagan stole the mantle that they have held for over five years. I simply adored this book.
So to sum it all up we have : A single phone call ... A saboteur ... A love triangle that will break your heart ... A very ill little girl that wraps you around her little finger.
As you read, it's easy to ask yourself... When is cheating not really cheating? How does true, brotherly love between friends become hatred? How can one phone call change so many lives? You find that you can't pick favorites because none of the characters were really wrong.... they don't know the whole story. What they know are half truths. But there always is a villain.... a deceiver, a backstabber, a saboteur... that's plays their role so well.
As you weave your way through all the trials and heartache, you feel as if you are in the story watching it all takes place. No story is perfect and as much as devoured this story I do have my list of wishes, wants and don't likes:
... the cursing was way overboard. It was unnecessary. It actually weakened the storyline. I hate spewing out the GD word and it happened over and over and over again. The 'F' word was pretty prominent too.
... partial spoiler here, but, the timeline of that phone call had me confused. I thought the 'breakup' already had occurred, then deep into the book it's explained that no, it hadn't.... that Teagan thought Chase had 'moved on', forgotten her and that's why she made that fateful choice.
... I failed to see Chase's leaving Clemson as wrong. It was discussed and settled. He was kept in the dark, not told anything. I don't see how 'Kat', Jensen or Teagan could blame him for his mutual decision made with Teagan. They kept telling him he chose to leave Teagan behind.... but it was mutual.... for their future and his career.
.... OH HOW I WANTED BRONWYN TO REAP WHAT SHE SOWED. I WANTED TO SEE AND FEEL HER COMEUPPANCE. She needed to pay the consequences and feel some real pain herself. She got off way to easy.
If you believe in real soul mates, the one you cannot breathe without or how you feel just to be in the same room with them. With one decision it all goes to hell and you feel like your missing the other have of your heart. Can that kind of love withstand lies and betrayal and the biggest secret that will change your life forever? This is the ultimate Love story and you will feel every emotion pos ...more

However, it's your typical storyline about college sweethearts and secret baby where the the hero, Chase goes off to play "soccer" in England leaving his love, Teagan behind whilst unbeknown to him she is pregnant and doesn't tell him. The twist to the story is that she goes on to have the baby, a daughter and ends up marrying his best friend. Their daughter then becomes gravely ill and she needs his help so she sends him a text from across the miles and he can't help but to go to her. We then experience a rollercoaster of all the feels and the emotions as they both cope with the lies and betrayal, but the hardest thing of all, is how they cope with the sadness of their daughter's illness. It is a very tense and emotional read at times but throughout it all there is an underlying theme of true love and eventual forgiveness that conquers all.
My only criticism (hence the 4 stars) is that the author had very limited knowledge of British football and it showed! She really shouldn't have gone there if she couldn't even describe the game! We Brits love our football, which is so much more than David Beckham and Arsenal! My other bug bear was with Bronwyn, the ow and that phone call! This part of the story line was left unanswered as we don't know how she got hold of Chase's phone and he didn't ask her!
I hope I've given enough to wet your appetite because all in all this was a really good read and I would highly recommend.
Kahlen Aymes. 15/11/17
Oh my flipping goodness!! I think Chase has overtaken Ryan. 😱
This was a beautifully written story, and just the thing for a 10 hour plane ride!
I knew it was going to be emotional, after the short story, from the love anthology.
Apart from a couple of comfort breaks, I read this in one go! And now I'm a hot mess, I have a stuffy nose and there has been some wierd leakage from my eyes.
I absolutely loved Chase and Teagen, from the short story, this grew into an amazing un-put-downable story.
A second chance story, with secrets, to crack the toughest of hearts.
The love story was beautifully told with all the other characters playing an integral part, not forgetting Remi, a sweet, full of life, little girl, going through some tough stuff, but still manages to stay up beat.
As hard as it was, finding out about Remi, Chase and Teagen had a ton of feelings to deal with, I even warmed to Jensen, siding with Chase at first too! I was so happy that Jensen and Chase were able to get over the hardship and get their friendship back on track.
I despised Bronwyn, and would like to say we British girls are not at all like her, but maybe I might be biased! She was despicable and as her insecurity unfolded you just knew she had more to say. Karma is a sweet b*tch, and I believe Bronwyn got what was coming to her.
I am so pleased that 2nd chances can work out how they are supposed to! And everyone involved got to really shine throughout the book.
The pages kept turning, with my fingers crossed for all the wrongs to be righted.
A lovely story, great page turner, with 2nd chances and big secrets and a wonderfully humble family at its heart.
I am ashamed to admit Chase as knocked Ryan into 2nd place as favourite book boyfriend!
Can't wait to see how Jensen's story unfolds in his book next.
The other issue to spoil the book was the explanation that Teagan begged to give Chase for over 60% of the book. It was dragged out for far too long that it became massively frustrating. She spent pages explaining why she wanted to explain when she could have just spat it out! I know the author wants to create some tension but it became ridiculous and put me in such a bad mood that all the incorrect football references then annoyed me more! As a minor complaint, I did not feel that the incident with Bronwyn and the phone call was adequately dealt with. As a reader, I wanted Bronwyn to be confronted about it and an explanation as to how it happened to be given but it was somewhat glossed over.
That said, there were some positives. Jensen was a wonderful character and I'm happy to see that his story is next, though I'm undecided as to whether I will read it. Also, the book highlights the issue of bone marrow donation which is a very worthy cause, so well done for that.
This was a fantastic read, angst, heartache, love and passion.
Chase really is put through the ringer in this one.
Teagan does what she thinks is for the best, but oh the repercussions.
You will fall in love with Remi. She’s amazing.
Your heart will break for Jensen.
You get it all in this, certainly has all the feels.
Bravo Kahlen x
