At fifteen, I knew I had found the girl I would one day marry. At seventeen, I was forced to move across the country and leave her behind, breaking both of our hearts.
Now, I'm back in Everton and ready to live the life I always wanted. I only hope that after so much time, Faith is willing to give me a second chance.
She still takes my breath away, and I’m going to prove to her that things are different this time around. She has always been the one who got away, and nothing will stand in our way. I’ll make sure of it.
Until my family needs me, and I have to choose between them and the woman I love.
Faith’s friends have good intentions – their hearts are in the right place. Easton shows that you can start over but sometimes it’s not as easy as you think. This was my first foray into the world of Everton. It was a pleasure to get to know both our main characters as well as the people in their circle.
Our author made it very easy to fall in love with her characters. She reminds me what I love when stories revolve around small towns. Living in New England there are plenty of small towns that I love to visit. You feel a part of a community where everyone cares. Her other theme is about second chances. When you know that two people belong together, you want to see them get their happy ending.
The author has a way of making the reader feel as if they are a part of this group of friends. It’s as if we are there watching everything unfold. She makes things seem so real. Not everything is clear-cut and sometimes there are bumps in the road. There came a time where I felt that Faith was being too easy. If you feel the need to talk with one, or more, of the characters then you know the author has created scenes that seem realistic. I also wanted to yell at Easton because there seemed a time when his thoughts seemed too easy – what he does and how it affects Faith’s feelings.
This book could be read as a standalone should you also start the series here. What’s good is because of that, we shouldn’t feel lost when we go back to check out what we’ve missed. It’s also a great incentive to see what other work she has created.

She still stays true to her first love, poems, while weaving longer stories with strong heroines and honest heroes. She aims to get readers thinking about life and love while experiencing her characters’ journeys.
She is continuously creating stories as she daydreams. Her other loves are country music, exploring the outdoors, and reading.
