been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin
watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old
baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never
Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters.
The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the
pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction.

on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she
can’t resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her
since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the
trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love

Holy crap. The dreaded cliff strikes again. I really need to start doing my research before reading a book.
From the first moment I saw this book during a cover reveal, I knew I had to read it. It sounded awesome. This book kept me hooked from page one. I loved the history between Corabelle and Gavin. It added so much depth to the story. It was easy for me to feel the connection between them, and feel how connected they once were.
There was so much sadness and grief I this book. My least favorite thing about the book is the exact same thing that made it so great…the emotion. The author literally had me in tears.
My only other complaint was the ending. I’m not sure how many more books there will be, but this had a definite Fallen Too Far feel…like it stopped right in the middle of the story. I seriously hate that. And I could spend page after page ranting about it, but I just don’t have the energy to do that right now.
I’ll definitely be reading the next book because I HAVE to know what happens to Corabelle and Gavin. I really want to see them get their HEA. After everything they’ve been through, they deserve it.
