I’ve made mistakes. Some of those mistakes have ruined lives, including my own.
Because of this, my past is something I have kept to myself, so when I found a woman who also wanted her past to remain hidden, it felt like the universe was pushing us together.
It turns out the universe had nothing to do with that.
If a person’s past doesn’t exist, the present may not unravel the way it should.
I found out the hard way, when I learned that my wife is not who I thought she was…living with a past I should know about. Her continuous self-destructive behaviors let me know she clearly has a plan—possibly one I never should have been a part of. I keep trying to save her, but she’s making it hard.
Now, both of our pasts have simultaneously rolled into the spotlight—colliding head-on, and causing the present to come crashing down on top of us.
I learned that since our pasts are part of who we are, they will always be the foundation of our present and our future.
The question I have is, will either of us walk away in one piece?

This is one of the most beautiful and touching stories that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and I loved every second of reading this book! This author has such a way of reaching straight into your heart and tugging on every emotion in existence and I laughed and cried and felt everything right along with these amazing characters that I fell in love over and over again.
AJ and Cammy have been through so much both together and on their own in life and I found myself wanting so badly for them to finally have their chance to be happy together. From the moment I was introduced to AJ and Cammy I felt they were meant to be. Life unfortunately had other plans for them and so many things get in the way of them being able to be together. My heart was literally broken and put back together so many times while reading this that by the time I reached the end I felt emotionally exhausted in the best way possible and I can count on one hand how many books have been able to have this effect on me.
When Ever was introduced into the picture I had tears streaming down my face and this story took on a completely new depth of emotion for me. I began to feel emotionally invested in these characters’ lives and felt like I knew them personally since I cared so much about what was going to happen to them. The situation going on with Gavin and Tori was so heartbreaking for me while reading this. I found myself feeling that everything would eventually be okay once things worked out and went in the direction they were always supposed to go from the beginning.
I can’t recommend this wonderful and incredibly beautiful book enough to anyone and everyone and this is a book that I strongly feel that everyone should read at least once! I’d like to take a moment to personally thank this author for providing me with such an incredibly profound story that will stay with me for a long time from now and I can’t wait to see more from her in the future!
