He broke her heart. When he finds out just how badly, it will break his too.

Nick Walker found the love of his life when he was just nineteen.

Found her.
Loved her.
Lost her.

It's been ten years since Nick watched the only woman he ever loved walk out of his life. Now this FBI Special Agent will do anything to win her back.

But it won’t be easy…

Mia’s heart was shattered by Nick. They'll have to face their painful past if they want a future, including Mia's own secret about that day it all fell apart.

Do you believe in second chances?

 

 
Nick Walker had to grow up fast following the death of his parents. He took on raising his three teenaged brothers and his two-year old sister while he was enrolled in college. In the middle of this chaos, he meets and falls in love with Mia James. Theirs is an epic romance…until tragedy strikes some years later and he lets her walk away. It’s been ten years and suddenly they find themselves face to face for the first time.

 
This is not your typical second-chance romance with easy issues to overcome the next time around. You’ll fall hard for Nick and then want to strangle him. Mia is sort of a mystery until her story unfolds and then you struggle to not lose it. The story transitions at will from past to present, depending on the aspect of the story being told at the time. It may seem confusing but I had no issues keeping up and it made for more compelling storytelling.

 
I’ve wanted Nick and Mia’s story since they first showed up in Worth the Risk. I knew it would be intriguing and this story delivered and punched my emotions unmercifully. I highly enjoyed it, though I needed just a smidgen more groveling from Nick:) I’m excited about the books to come in this series as the Walker brothers are queued nicely in this story.

    Eight years ago, JT McKinney lost his leg in a car accident and completely upended his plans for a football career and much more. He’s now the co-owner of a successful California-based company, far from his family in Virginia, but he’s living a lonely and solitary life…until he meets diner waitress Paige Roberts and her precocious 4-year old daughter, Casey. She and JT have a common bond.   If you’re looking for heartwarming and cuteness, you’ll love this story. I really appreciated how this was more about the slow development of Paige and JT’s relationship than the angst behind their circumstances. It was lovely to see the three of them (Casey is a huge part of the story) find their way to creating […]

    Quick Summary Stephen McKinney is a highly successful real estate developer but a broken man emotionally. Hannah Walker was a very broken woman, emotionally and physically, who is now triumphing running her horse farm, designed to provide therapy for disabled children. When they have a chance meeting in a grocery store, little did they realize the impact it would have on them.   What I loved about the story Stephen and Hannah Their past trauma was slowly uncovered throughout the course of the story, almost in tandem with their self revelations and shifting emotions. It would be easy to use their experiences salaciously but fortunately it was adeptly captured to help define them, not victimize them. The romance While the attraction is immediate, […]
