~ Synopsis ~

You know her side of the story, now learn his.

"It was useless. I felt branded beneath my skin by a girl who left without even saying goodbye."

When Will Price was assigned a partner for a sixth grade class project he had no idea she would become his best friend. After years of friendship, she eventually became so much more.  Then, one day she left with no explanation.

Will’s life shattered right before his eyes and he was left alone to pick up the pieces.  Floundering without her, Will must figure out a way to carry on, to find a way to exist without her.

Seven years later, a chance encounter leaves him desperate to get her back. He has one week to make her his again.  Not everyone gets a second chance with the love of their life and Will is determined to never lose her again.

~ Our Review ~
3 Star Review by Heather

I was really looking forward to this book, but was sadly disappointed. I was thinking it was going to be a continuation of Will and Sarah's story.  It was, but not till around 3/4 quarters of the way through the book.  I am not a fan of reading the same book just in a different POV.  I feel if you are going to do that you should just write book one in alternating POV's.

Sarah is making a life for herself even though she avoids everyone.  She is dreading going home for he brothers wedding because she doesn't want to run into Will, the guy who broke her heart.  She isn't expecting that Will was still hanging around her family even though she wasn't there anymore.  She doesn't want to talk with him, but he isn't going to give her the chance to run away again.  Can they work through their communication issues?  Will they finally get their HEA?

Will has no idea why Sarah up and left him seven years ago.  He tried to move on from her, but no girl could come close to filling the gap in his heart.  They could only give him temporary relief and that wasn't what he needed.  He became a teacher like he planned.  He became good friends with Sarah's brother Brian, when she left.  He knew he would get to see Sarah at the wedding and planned to get her to talk with him. He was determined to not let her run from him again.  Can he get her to open up to him?

This book had potential to be an amazing book.  I think it would have been better if it went past to present like Him.  Then it wouldn't have felt like I was reading the same book over again.  I really had a hard time wanting to read this book.  I was happy with the ending so I gave it a 3 star.
