He broke her heart. When he finds out just how badly, it will break his too.

Nick Walker found the love of his life when he was just nineteen.

Lost her.

It’s been ten years since Nick watched the only woman he ever loved walk out of his life. Now this FBI Special Agent will do anything to win her back.

But it wonโ€™t be easyโ€ฆ

Miaโ€™s heart was shattered by Nick. They’ll have to face their painful past if they want a future, including Mia’s own secret about that day it all fell apart.

Do you believe in second chances?

My Review:
This was an emotional second chance love story that made my heart swoon and collapse in equal measure. I definitely had all the feels reading this one.

Nick and Mia were soulmates who found each other early in life. Nick had just been thrown into the deep end after his parent’s tragic death, and once Mia came into his life they both became quasi-parents to his younger siblings, especially to two-year-old Hannah.

I loved the way this book moved between past and present and how the story was slowly unraveled one layer at a time. I also loved both Nick and Mia and seeing them together from youth to adults I was completely perplexed as to how they could have split up because they were just so perfect together. I knew it was tied up with whatever happened to Hannah and when it was disclosed I felt my heart break right along with Mia. Watching their true love self-destruct was one of the hardest things and I had a painful lump in my throat throughout those chapters.

Circumstances reunite them ten years later and it’s clear they never got over one another, but the demons of the past were never resolved and they are still forming a solid obstacle, preventing them from reconnecting.

This one seriously tugged at my heart strings. I bounced from one emotion to another and I wanted to slap some sense into Nick on more than one occasion.

The ending was amazing and couldn’t have been more perfect.

I’m now totally invested in this series and it definitely makes me want to read the previous three McKinney books.

I enjoyed Claudia’s writing and although the inner monologue became a little repetitive in parts, in the main, it flowed well.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this if you enjoy well written contemporary romance with all the feels.

Thanks to the author for providing an ARC of this book via Netgalley.
