Until years later, fate brings her to an emergency room, and face to face with a stormy-eyed doctor intent on changing her mind.

But how far are Clare and Logan willing to go for love? When their love is tested, is Clare ready to put her whole heart on the line again? Can Logan learn the true meaning of love, even if it means sacrificing his own happiness? When a second chance at love is given, Clare and Logan learn you never know if you are truly ready until you’re ready to risk it all.

I'm not going to tell you the plot of the book in my review. I think the synopsis above gives you enough details that you don't need me to sum it up. But I will tell you how I felt about this story.
You know when you're on a roller coaster and you're heading up the steep climb? Click-Click-Click And you're so dang excited and yet terrified to get to the top? It's that deep burn, the desire to pause the ride and just embrace the height without the drop. That's what this book was to me. It's very rare a love story just continues to climb without the drop so you know it's coming and I was incredibly anxious to get to it.
Oh my gosh, Logan Matthews... swoon!!! Could one man be any more perfect? Thoughtful, caring, loving, compassionate, honest, open with his deep soul and sad past. Seriously, he's the stuff fictional men are made of. All kinds of delicious. And Clare and Logan's chemistry is sizzling.
But the star of the show? Maddie. She is such a bright spot, even when this book gets a little rough. The amount of joy she brought to the book, really helped me pull through the tougher moments. But let me tell you, those tough moments were tough. My eyes blurred, stinging.
Overall this story was amazing.
J.L. Berg is a California native living in the South. She's married to her highschool sweetheart and they have two beautiful girls that drive them batty on a daily basis. When she's not writing, you can find her with her nose stuck in a romance book, in a yoga studio or devouring anything chocolate.
