My life was perfect. I had everything I wanted, including the love of a man that intended to make all of my dreams come true. Until… “…the night my life as I knew it ended.”
In the blink of an eye, all I'd once known was ripped away. Suffering in limbo, full of fear and regret, I had only memories and dreams to comfort me, urging me to fight.
"...marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled..."
But they stole it all.
Awakened to betrayal and pain, I struggle to find a new beginning. Yet the past seeps in, pulling me under. No matter how hard I try to keep my head above water, it threatens to ruin me.
How can I really live with my hopes for the future still frozen? And if the ice thaws, will I have the courage to build new dreams?
I'm a stay at home mom to three crazy kiddos all under the age of five. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and I like to think we're living our own happily ever after. My contemporary romance's are all about the happy endings but of course there's lots of twists, turns, and a whole lot of drama added in. That's the fun part, right?

My Review: (ARC provided)
The beginning of this book hooked me. What a great way to begin a story. It was a surprising little twist to the beginning of Emmy's story. I loved how the book alternates between past and present so you get a feel for both relationships. I think I would classify this book as a love triangle but not your typical one.
I'll be the first to say I'm a second chance at romance kind of girl. If there is a love triangle I always almost root for the first love (unless they are unlikeable). So this book was like a tug of war with my emotions. I want her with him, no I want her with him. I honestly can't say I think what Austin did was that bad...he was seeking comfort. It wasn't like he was doing it while they were together and to be fair it had been a years time. Now Ashley on the other hand was unforgivable in my opinion, she was suppose to be best friends with Emmy but was secretly in love with Austin. Now I know the heart wants what it wants but she was sneaky about it. I don't want to spoil things but I couldn't imagine forgiving my best friend after something like that. Austin truly loved Emmy and was in a bad place.
Zep...I loved his character and the way he got Emmy to come out of her shell. He was pretty much all in from day one. They had instant chemistry even if it was the love/hate kind and I loved their banter. I don't want to recap the book because I feel I would be giving too much away. The author throws you for a couple of loops and then the ending...I was thinking NO!
So whether you like love triangles or not this is different and I think you will love Austin, Zep, and Emmy's story. It is somewhat heartbreaking at times but it has a happy feel.
