I went back and forth with this one. The h annoyed me, she couldn't resist the H then she said we cant have sex and the next morning she's in nothing but her undies asking him to make her come. Total whiplash with her.

I wanted him to be more alpha not that he was a bad H but it just fell short. The story itself was interesting and there were things I liked about the characters but it could have been different.

“Freud believed that dreams are manifestations of our deepest desires, often relating to repressed childhood memories or obsessions.”
~ Caroline

Caroline had been having dreams. Dreams that she thought showed her past. Little did she know that the dreams were much more than what she ever thought they could be.

Caroline has loved Luke since she first met him but there were miscommunications and misunderstandings leading to the demise of their friendship. Caroline was dating Mark, Luke’s brother

Oh goodness, where do I even start? This book has a little of everything: heartbreak, loss, excitement, second chance love, hot steamy sex, suspense, humor, oh and did I mention HOT, HOT sex? I'll admit I was hesitant to read this book as I was not "ready" for a sad story; however, I am so glad I read it. While there is sadness and grief, there is also so much more.

Caroline lost the man she thought she was going to spend the rest of her life with and had not lived in two years. When her mother

Olivia Hayes will capture your attention from the beginning!

You will be consumed by this story line. You will fall in love. You will laugh, cry, and hurt with and for Caroline.

This book is PHENOMENAL!!!!!

Caroline and Luke will capture your heart. Their story is a beautiful yet painful one. They knew from the very beginning that they belonged to one another. The meaning LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT is fitting for them. But, insecurities and mind games get in the way. They don't follow their hearts. One

Luke and Caroline

When we fall in love we think that person is the one. But what if what you think was love wasn't, but was more like a stepping stone to your destiny? Caroline was young when she met Luke, but she knew she loved him then. She had this connection with Luke that was unbreakable. Mark is Luke's brother and when Mark made his move first, Carolina gave Luke every chance to tell her not to. Sometimes destiny is a fickle thing. Sometimes we have to go through some rough patches to make

I was given this for an honest review and I absolutely fell in love with this story!!! I have to say that when I first started reading this I was not absolutely into it. Since the beginning is one of tragedy and losing something and someone so very important to you that you are just not sure how to go on. Once I made it through that I absolutely fell in love with it. This was I thought the perfect story and not just the Luke and Caroline/Savannah story line but the secondary characters ...more
