Five stars is not enough to rate this book. I am still reeling from the emotions I felt while reading this. I feel as though someone has delved into my soul and put it on paper. I do not personally know M. E. Montgomery but I feel as if she has known me my whole life. From the first page to the last, I was sucked in and refused to stop reading.
It’s hard to read a book that hits on so many levels, to feel so exposed by someone else’s words and I don’t think I have ever related to a character like I have to Maddy. I want to refrain from using cliches because this book deserves better, but this is truly about second chances, the ones we receive and the ones we give ourselves. I love a book that gives me an opportunity to delve into the mind frame of the characters and live out an alternate reality, this actually helped me to start to let the past go instead. To begin a healing process that I did not know I needed.
This is the first book I have read by this author. I can guarantee it won’t be my last. I know now that I should have a box of tissues next to me though.
If growing up in her home wasn’t enough to shatter Madelyn Stone’s illusions of happily ever after, then serving several years behind bars certainly was. Her crime? Believing in family and growing up on the wrong side of the tracks. She’s learned the hard way that there is no such thing as a prince in shining armor.
Between a career in the Marines and plans to marry his childhood sweetheart, Holten Andrews had his future all mapped out…until life took an unexpected, heart-ripping turn. Now he’s moved on with a new career in law and vows to confine women to one of three categories: family, professional, and f*ckable. No blurring the lines. Ever.
Love is the last thing on Maddy’s mind as she attempts to forge a new path out of the wreckage of her life. Holt’s sense of loyalty is rocked when he’s blindsided by feelings for a woman he would normally condemn. When revelations from Maddy’s past threaten her, Maddy has to put her faith in Holt, while Holt fights not to lose the one woman who blurred all of his lines. Every choice they make will figure into whether or not they can make yesterday’s dreams still come true tomorrow.
