My life changed forever the night my husband died.
I was left with a shattered heart, a heap of bills, and our daughter, EVERLEIGH. I don’t want to rely on anyone, least of all CREW GENTRY. He’s my first love and the man who almost destroyed me, the man who has let me down every time I’ve needed him.
But when tragedy strikes a second time, Crew just might be my only hope.
My life changed forever the night my brother died.
I was left with a guilty conscience, a pile of mistakes, and little else. I take care of JULIA GENTRY, my brother’s widow and the love of my life, and their daughter. I know she doesn’t want my help, but she gets it anyway. I owe her that.
When another disaster hits, I’m given the opportunity to make things right. I’m taking it. I'm willing to sacrifice it all.

I received a ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.
Adriana Locke is a new author to me so I was curious as to what she could bring to me as a reader and I'm glad to say she didn't disappoint. This is a emotional book all about second chances and learning how to move on and the sacrifices you'll make for those you love. the author got the emotion spot on, I felt as though I was right there too feeling every last emotion and putting myself in that situation too and wondering what if. this book will stay with me even now after I've finished it its the type of story that affects you so much you never forget it.
This books about Crew and Julia and her daughter Everleigh (Ever) and what happens when the worst thing possible happens and you have to put your past and feelings aside to work through everything together. I loved Crew Gentry cause he wasn't my typical book boyfriend I go for but he was so much more and Crew and Julia together you could feel everything they felt. Without giving to much of the major plot away this book will pull on your heart strings till your left and emotional blubbering mess but that's what makes it so good and that mixed in with the fun aspects and the hot sexy scenes is what makes this so special. I cant wait to read more from this author.
“She’s been missing him a lot lately.”
Julia’s voice is barely a whisper and my chest constricts. Our conversations don’t normally make it to discussing Gage unless we’re already arguing. The fact that she just brought it up shocks me and I’m not comfortable with it. I don’t know how to take it. I feel my jaw pulse with frustration and scramble to change the subject again. “Why is it so chilly in here?”
Her smile disappears and she tugs her sweatshirt nervously. “I didn’t know it was.”
“How can you possibly not know?” I start to the thermostat across the room when she clears her throat.
“The heater isn’t working right. I asked Lane to come by and look at it earlier this week.”
“And he hasn’t been here yet?” I shoot her a look and she shakes her head. “He’ll be here tonight.” I dig my cell outta my pocket.
“Crew, don’t. Please. The last time you called my landlord he was a complete jerk to me for a couple of months. I just got on good terms with him again.”
I scroll through my contacts list, looking for his name.
“Crew ...” I know her doe-eyes are pleading with me. I also know if I look up at her, I’ll be somewhat inclined to give in.
So I don’t.
