4 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes

I really enjoyed this book and the characters, but what I loved about it was the storyline itself and how different it was.  It is the story of a woman who is trying to get redemption for the wrongs that happened in her life, the ones that she balmes herself for.  It is about second chances, learning how to forgive yourself and move on.

Lissa has a tragic past that has left her alone with no one to turn to.  She completely blames herself for what happened and therefore is still just living in the past, unable to move on. One night she unexpectedly meets Dan and she starts to see the light again.  He is everything that you would want in a man, hot, and sexy but loving and sweet. They connect instantly and as they spend more time together Lissa finds herself falling for him hard. 

Dan happened to be in the wrong place at the right time.  He was looking for the wrong woman and ended up meeting the perfect woman.  He instantly connected with Lissa, both physically and emotionally.  They met and talked for hours not wanted the night to end.  It was as if they had known each ther for years.  Dan loved how selfless and kind she was.  Lissa lovee how protective and caring he was.  But she was still hiding her past from him, afraid that once he found out she would lose him.  When is the right time to tell him the truth?  And when she does will he go running?

Dan and Lissa were perfect together.  They just fit like two perfect pieces of a puzzle.  I loved the banter between them but most of all I just loved the way they loved each other.  Over time the author goes back to the past, unraveling piece by piece what happened that has caused Lissa to pick up and start all over.  I had some idea of who the people were but I had no idea how it all happened.  When that moment came when you saw the tragedy that struck her life I hurt with her.  It is something that no one she ever have to experience but I think what made it all worse was how the people around her, the ones that were supposed to love her unconditionally, completely let her down.  I felt so bad for her in those moments and wished that things would be different.  But as time goes on you see that maybe things happen for a reason.  Maybe Lissa is right where she is supposed to be.  She is helping someone out in a major way, a way that is both selfless and kind.  And if her past never happened she wouldn’t be here.  That is what made this story so special and so real.  It is what made this story so unique as well. 

As always the story is well written and the characters are people that you will love.  This story is at times emotional but overall I think it was a n easy read with not too much crazy drama or angst.  Great job by Ms. Walls.
