Dying . . . Dead . . . Deceased . . .
It doesn’t matter how many times I say it or how many different names I give it, it still means the same thing. One of these days I’ll be nothing but a passing memory, a familiar face in a forgotten photo. But there's three things I need before this life of mine ends . . . I need to tell him I love him more than life itself. I need to feel the strength of his arms wrapped around me just one more night. Most of all, I need him to forgive me. Eight years ago I broke the heart of the only man I’ve ever loved and today I’m moving home in hopes that he’ll let me put it back together. I’m not sure how many breaths I have left, but I’ll use each and every last one fighting for what I destroyed. My name is Laney Jacobs and this is my journey.

I don’t think I’ve ever felt so many emotions at once while reading a book.  I had to prepare myself before diving into it because I had been warned of it’s emotional ways but it was worth every tear shed, heart palpitation, and moment of weakness in which I felt the need to throw my kindle.  If you like an ugly cry book you better do yourself a favor and buy this one. 
Laney’s strength throughout the entire book is just life changing.  I love a character that can make me look at my life and wonder what I can do to change it for the better.  That’s exacltly what she did.  I loved that despite going through the hardest time in her life, she was still sassy and full of life.  In a way, she reminds me of my mother in law, who went through similar circumstances, and came out stronger and happier.  And for anyone, especially a character, to remind me of such a spectacular human being, must mean the character was written flawlessly.  Seriously KL, good job. 
Levi was written perfectly for this book.  He had the edge of dominance, only when it’s needed, and the heart of gold.  There were times where I just wanted to reach out and hug him.  I think KL has this way of writing characters that are so real they come to life. 
Five stars for this phenomenal book! 
*Review by Danielle Middleton

“I wish it was someone else,” she croaks, swallowing hard. “There are thousands of bad people in the world, but it happened to you.” I watch her eyes fill with tears and then I look away. It’s pathetic of me really; that I’m unable to look my best friend in the face when it’s obvious that she is struggling with this almost as much as I am. But I’ve cried my fair share of tears and although I’m certain my tear ducts have yet to dry up, I don’t want to cry tonight. Somehow I know that if I watch Mia break, then I’ll shatter right along with her. “I’m glad it’s me.” She gasps, startled by my words, and I rush to try and explain. “If it wasn’t me, it would be someone else, and I would never wish this upon someone else. You know that saying that God will only give you what you can handle?” She nods. “Sometimes I tell myself that he just thinks I’m really strong and I can handle it, whereas someone else couldn’t.” “Does that help?” she asks. “Does that make you feel better about it?” “No, but it eases my mind. Sometimes when I’m having a good day, it brings me peace, however temporary it may be. But no, it doesn’t make me feel better.” “Peace,” she whispers, seemingly trying the word on for size. “I want you to have peace.”

K.L. Grayson resides in a small town outside of St. Louis, MO. She is entertained daily by her extraordinary husband, who will forever inspire every good quality she writes in a man. Her entire life rests in the palms of six dirty little hands, and when the day is over and those pint-sized cherubs have been washed and tucked into bed, you can find her typing away furiously on her computer. She has a love for alpha-males, brownies, reading, tattoos, sunglasses, and happy endings…and not particularly in that order.
