I really enjoyed this story. I'm never sure going in what to expect, especially with an author that's new to me, but this was such a great story. And it was longer than I expected. (Kindle doesn't always give me a good estimation of length.) I loved watching Lacey and Shayne's relationship build, and my heart broke every time either one of them thought of him leaving. I also ached for Lacey and her daughter. And I ached for Shayne and Todd's friendship. I cried. A few times. I rarely cry for a story. Maybe because I normally don't choose stories that make me cry. But ultimately this was such a great story. Now I need to know what's going on with Lacey's brother, Todd.
