High powered divorce lawyer, Victoria Larkin, is known as the ice queen. Tough. Emotionless. What they don’t know, is that ten years ago, she lost everything. Including her hope for the future.
Chase Monroe struggles with his own demons. Devastated by guilt and on a mission to correct his past, he uses his skills as a college psychology professor to help others move beyond their grief.
When Victoria is forced to attend grief counselling, she meets Chase, and there is an instant attraction. Chase is determined to help her confront her past and find happiness. Victoria is afraid to relive her pain.
Just as they begin to step forward, tragedy strikes and throws them backwards, and they find themselves, once again, shackled to the past.
Can Chase and Victoria find the path to a happy future together? Or will they forever be wishing for yesterday?
(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
I agreed to give my honest review of this book. 11 percent in and I knew that this story would wreck me. What I did not expect was that I’d be sniffling and bawling my eyes out while I was on break at work, and trying to hide the fact that it was because of a book.
The writing was so good that I could not put the book down. I devoured it any chance I got… and in turn it devoured me. From the beginning, I had the story-line pegged, and I was right. Did it affect how I read the book or how I felt? Definitely not, because I shelved presumptions away and hoped beyond hope that I was wrong… forgetting about it until I felt like I was punched in the gut with certain revelations.
Alternating POVs throughout the whole book give you the whole experience. Feeling Victoria’s pain and her cold demeanor had me wanting some ray of hope for her. And when I met Chase, there he was, the beacon of light to pull Victoria out of her darkness. For the record, Chase can man-handle me any time!
Not giving much away here, because frankly, I’d rather the reader experience it first-hand. Have the tissues close by and forget the mascara while reading this book.

I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.
I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.
I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention.
