Paige Abram never faces a problem she can’t solve until her high school sweetheart comes back into her life, and she’s bombarded with memories of their relationship. His presence is almost suffocating, but he’s still just as beautiful as she remembers.
His heart beat differently after its first love.
The moment Drake Wilkins sees her again, the numbness he’s felt since he walked away disappears. But she’s not the same girl he fell in love with back then. She’s colder, not as easy going; she’s a complete stranger now.
Her heart nearly quit after its first loss.
When a funeral has them returning to their hometown, a secret she’s kept from him all these years is revealed. She expects him to push her away but he doesn’t; he tests her just like when they were kids.
Their hearts resuscitate, but in the city, their love will face its biggest challenge of all: survival.
To say I devoured this book in one sitting is an understatement.
It drew me in from the start, with high school lovers being reunited years later. Little did I know the emotional roller coaster this book was going to take me on. Paige is seriously one kick butt heroine. To go through what she has gone through, and still be able to function is awesome. Yes, she had issues with dealing with the demons of her past, but it was awesome watching her go through the healing process. Drake is truly the definition of the perfect man. Even when he had every right to be bitter, angry, and hateful, he seemed to look at the situation from all angles and see the bigger picture.
This book had me crying through at least 75% of it, but it felt so good! The author has a way of drawing you in, and making you feel like you are one of the characters.
This book is definitely a must read!!
