~ Review ~
This book was hard for me to read. I really loved Jase and didn't want to let him go. He was it for me. I knew I needed to let myself fall for Dan!! I did love him, but he didn't take Jase's place!!
Cassie is trying to piece herself back together after being broken. She has had a very difficult life. Her parents are worthless pieces of crap. So when she ran and crash in the middle of nowhere and met Jase she thought she had it made. Then Jase was taken from her and her life was going downhill. She has a baby to take care of and her best friend Mel and Moose to help her out. She doesn't want to find anyone else to replace Jase, but Mel is encouraging her to live again. She has been depressed for a year. Mel doesn't want her to forget Jase just let him go so she can move on and live again. But when she keeps having run ins with Aiden she finally wants to open up. But when she finds out who he is will she still give their relationship a chance? Or is the betrayal too much for her already fragile heart?
Aiden wasn't expecting to ever run into Cassie. His only goal was to watch her and protect her. He has been doing that for the last year without any run ins. But after their first run in he can't stay away and he can no longer watch her for his brother. He wants to watch her for himself. He wants her. He wants to be a man she can be proud of and call hers. He feels like he has let everyone down and he is scared to let Cassie down. Can he be the man she needs? Can he forgive himself so he can move on?
This was a good sequel to Away. This book will finish up any loose ends you had with Away and it may also kill you slowly ;) This book is very emotional and will have you in tears. I couldn't find myself falling in love with Dan like I did Jase. But Dan is just as sweet as Jase was. Be prepared with Kleenex before starting this book.
B.a. Wolfe is an amazing author and knows how to draw you in and keep you there. She writes brilliant stories of love, heartbreak and redemption! I couldn't have asked for a better story. Even though it didn't play out the way my mind wanted it too it ended the way it should have!! I could see myself in a theater watching these movies!!
~ Excerpt ~
Chapter 1 – One Year Ago
My hand shot left and landed on the alarm clock, silencing its incessant beeping. There was no point even setting it. I’d been awake for hours, anyway, but inside my nerves were having a hay day. Heartbeats thudded against my chest as I sucked in deep breaths trying to calm myself.
“Fuck it,” I muttered, kicking my heavy comforter off.
I swung my legs over the edge of the bed and ran a hand through my messy morning hair. My eyes traveled to the phone on my nightstand. I picked it up, sent a quick message to my brother, then tossed it beside me on the bed and made my way to the kitchen in nothing but my boxers. After dumping coffee grinds into the maker and setting the machine to brew, I braced my arms against the white countertop and stared down mindlessly while I waited. Your brain knew when something was important. It wouldn’t let you think of anything else. It was all-consuming. Today, it might just be the death of me.
I filled my lucky Denver Bronco’s mug and paced my way through the house. Wearing a path in the floor was the only thing slowing my thoughts. I downed a few sips and stopped in front of a tall bookshelf. A covered box containing all my letters from Jase was nestled there.
It had started out as a joke, but neither of us could stop writing. I told him I had a mailbox at college and then every week I had a letter waiting for me. And every week I’d write him back. I saved them all. His latest had me smiling hard. He was happy. Really happy—thanks to her. I needed to meet that girl. My eyes caught a glimpse of the clock; it was nearly time.
I took a shower and slipped on a pair of worn jeans, a plain tee, and my Nikes. Sucking in a deep breath, I grabbed my keys and left, bracing myself for the day ahead.
I was only an hour into my drive when the red engine light caught my eye. It came on every once in a while, so I pushed it to the back of my mind. My foot pressed a little harder on the gas pedal. As the needle on the speedometer crept higher, a new light on the dashboard lit up. And then it happened—my car started to shut down. “Fuck.” I banged my fist at the wheel as the car slowed. But no amount of banging or cursing helped. I veered to the shoulder of the highway, dodging car after car. Finally, the piece of crap stopped dead.
“No, no, no. Don’t do this to me now.” I pounded the steering wheel again, ready to beat it to death. “Not today. Damn it!” I reached for my phone in the cup holder, dialed the number for Triple A, and within minutes the rep said a tow truck would be on its way. Estimated time of forty-five minutes. Great.
It was too important of a day to be starting out like this. I only prayed things turned around.
