Sometimes forever takes a detour
Single mom Lacey McQueen's life has never gone according to plan. She fell in love once, at sixteen, with a man she thought would be her forever. He was her first kiss---her first everything. But one horrific night took everything from her, leaving her broken and alone, with lifelong responsibilities.
Landon Jessup's life revolved around Lacey, but when the unthinkable happened to her, it all fell apart. Unable to make things right, he did the only thing he could. He ran. And he's regretted it for six long years.
Now fate has brought them back together. The moment their eyes meet it's as if time has stood still--the attraction, the pull, the love--it's all still there. But so are complications, new and old. Can this second chance at love deliver the future they've always wanted or will the pain of their pasts destroy them again?
I couldn’t put the book down. The characters were fantastic and the story was full of emotions that tear you apart.55
If I could give this book 100 stars I would. Well worth the read, with all the feels. True to life!!55
This was a great book! Loved every minute!55
Brutally honest, captivating, gut-wrenching, beautiful. That is what I feel like I just read, a truly open and honest look at the challenges a person deals with when faced with a most heinous act inflicted upon them. Lacey’s world is shattered in one night and she has to figure out how to rebuild herself for the love of her son. Landon walks away from the woman he loves, unable to cope with what happened and that she chooses to keep the baby. When years later, 2 boys become best friends at school, who knew that Lacey and Landon would be reunited. This is a full on ugly cry book as you step through all the emotions that both Lacey and Landon face. The challenges for 2 young boys, one looking for a father and the other not wanting his parents to break apart, made my heart bleed. There are so many hard choices in life, no easy answers, this romance showed the beauty of love while being honest that the road to happiness is not easy.55
