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.
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.
