4 Star review by Heather

This a good book.  It brings out some strong emotions.

Avalynn (Ava) is struggling to get her life back after a brutal childhood.  She almost dies, but doesn't let that prevent her from getting her life in order to raise Abby, her baby sister.  She finished school, gets custody of her sister and then moves away.  She doesn't want to meet anyone because it will disrupt her and her sister's life.  She only wants her sister to have a perfect life and grow up feeling loved.  Will she allow herself to come first? Will she let herself live life and love?

Daxton is a cocky rock star.  He is very closed off about his past.  He just wants to work and play in his band.  He doesn't believe there is one girl out there for him.  Until the night he meets Ava.  It was supposed to be a one night stand, but he couldn't let her go.  Can he love her and Abby? Will he help her be able to love?

This book is a fast read.  One thing that I was bummed about is it is a cliff hanger.  It is really annoying to read a book thinking it will end and then have it be a cliff hanger.  With that said it was still worth the read and I can't wait to find out what happens with these characters.

~ Synopsis ~

Daxton James holds the world in the palm of his hands. He has finally met the love of his life and is more than ready to start a family with her and her precious daughter, Abby. He has the best friends that anyone could ask for, a career doing two things he loves the most-music and helping people and his family piecing themselves back together, slowly but surely. Everything has fallen into place in his life and he couldn't be more happy about it.

There is only one problem---He can’t remember any of it.

Daxton was involved in a serious accident which has left him fighting for his life, while his loved ones wait in the midst, unsure if he is even going to come out of it alive. Thankfully he does, but his short term memory can’t say the same. He only remembers the Daxton he had been years previous. The playboy, the rock star and hopelessly devoted to a woman that is not Avalynn Wright.

The doctors tell Avalynn to just let his memory come back on it’s own and to not push him too much, fearful that forcing his memory will cause permanent scarring and trauma. Avalynn is so thankful to have Daxton alive, that if letting him go will keep him happy and healthy, she will do just that, even if it means killing off herself; bit by bit. Avalynn struggles to get a grasp on what is a reality and what is created by the stresses of her life which causes her to downward spiral, with nobody there to break her fall.

Will Avalynn and Daxton make it through this or is their relationship built only as strong as a House of Cards, ready to crumble at any moment?
