You can say I had it all. The fancy house, top of the line car, lots of friends and more money than anyone could ever imagine. On the outside, we were the perfect family. No one knew about my abusive father and my mother who drank herself into oblivion every night. My name is Karly and I have scars, deep scars that no one knows about, and when my parents died I was left alone and on my own, to fight through life with no help.
When it came to life and happiness, I had it all until my world was turned upside down. My name is Nicholas and my wife, the love of my life, left me and our new baby girl without as much as an explanation. I didn’t want to accept it, but after our divorce was final and four long years passed, I started to lose hope that she’d ever come back. Emma was growing so fast and I needed help. My sister recommended that I hire her friend, Karly, as Emma’s nanny. I took a chance on bringing another woman into my little girl’s life. Did I do the right thing?
As many days and nights are spent together, feelings can no longer be denied and a relationship is formed.
Life is about taking chances and learning how to fall, but when the past comes back, will they be strong enough to fight through and trust each other? Or will all they worked for fall apart?

When S. Moose said that this book is unlike her past books….she wasn’t lying. This book is an emotional rollercoaster. One minute I was happy and feeling the love and then the next I was either pissed or sad. I really did enjoy this book and storyline. The story kept me interested throughout the whole thing. I loved that it was dual POV….it was nice seeing how each character felt. I will say that I didn’t feel like the story flowed as well as it could’ve. It felt a little jumpy to me. It was like some scenes or thoughts weren’t completed. It’s hard to explain but you’ll understand as you read it. I just felt that if some of those scenes would’ve been expanded on then the story would’ve flowed better. Even with that I still enjoyed the book. I look forward to seeing where this story goes.
This story truly is about learning to move on and learning to trust and let people in. Karly and Nicolas are two extremely broken people…with good reason. What happens to Karly when she was a teenager is horrible and my heart broke for her. Life truly didn’t get easier for Karly as time went on, but once she met Nicolas things started to look up. I have to say I felt I connected better with Karly then I did with Nicolas. I didn’t like him a whole lot in the beginning. Yes he did grow on me but by the end I’m not sure how I feel about him. (You’ll understand when you read the book). Nicolas had his sweet side but he could also be a complete jerk too. I understand he had built walls up to protect him and his daughter Emma, but it rubbed me the wrong way at times. I’m holding out hope that my opinion will change in the second book.
I loved the secondary characters that we met throughout the story…even Bradley. Emma (Nicolas’s daughter) was absolutely adorable. I also loved Alexis and Karly’s friendship. I’ll be excited to see where Alexis and Larry go in the second book 🙂
I would recommend this book if you are looking for that second chance at love type story. This was a very quick read, sometimes I felt things were rushed, but worth the read. I will say that this book did end with a Cliffhanger and book 2 isn’t out until August. Just know that this wasn’t the worst cliffy I’ve read but it will drive me crazy trying to figure something’s out while I wait 🙂
