Talk about an angsty eyes kept springing leaks. If you want an emotional, angsty story, then here it is. Unfortunately, it was just too emotional for me.

First and foremost, I have to say that at different times throughout the book, I wanted to knock the H/h's head together. The making life altering decisions that impacted the others life, without discussing it first, was uncalled for.

Chase had great hero moments. Did he make some bad choices? Absolutely. Did he make them after a hor

I really REALLY hated the hero. I automatically forgiven the heroine for hiding the pregnancy. I mean he doesn't want her for herself, I'm not gonna hold her responsible for cutting all ties and in process not telling him about the pregnancy. He didn't deserve to know. Throughout their whole relationship, she only gave, he only took. He enlisted in army without thinking about her without considering her feelings, deciding for herself to leave her behind because he thought she'd do exactly what h ...more

That was amazing. What well written book. The author did an amazing job making you feel exactly what the characters were feeling. I have cried my eye out, smiled, laughed, blushed, hated, and loved with them. Chase made big life changing mistakes that left Lauren and himself lost and heartbroken. How do you fix that.....they figured it out together thank goodness. Loved this book it's a MUST READ!!!!!!

I just loved this!!!

I swear there was so much angst!!

Chase ♡ Hot Hot Hot. I loved him. I really did feel for him all the way through. He just needed to do what he thought was best.

Lauren.. My heart broke for her. I did want to tit punch her more than a few time just to tell her to snap the hell out of it!!

I had tears at the beginning. Lots of swooning and some parts I was like FFS xx

Chase and Lauren will touch your hearts and have you cheering them on through all of the traumatic drama they had to overcome. The story is captivating and draws you in right from the beginning. I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Don't just Don't

Don't write a military novel if you know NOTHING about the military! it was just a very poorly written book just very repetitive and you just cant relate to either main character they where both selfish people and had like no personally!

Seriously? This book was not well written at all. The story line was interesting but when I started seeing error after error after error, I became increasingly frustrated.

At one point, even the name of one of the main characters ... was spelled incorrectly 😳! Wow.

Will not read any more works from this author. Sorry. There are too many other authors out here to waste time with ones that don't have thorough spell/grammar checks performed before publishing.

I creid and cried , and just when I though I couldn't cry anymore I cried . This book took me on an emotional journey . Poor Chase was really going thru a lot while Lauren was soon faced with a difficult choice that would change her life forever. I loved every page of this book . I felt it pull at my heart strings . it was an awesome and emotional story .

I accidentally ran into this book. And let me just say that I was more than happy to have found it. This is the first book I have read by this author and I was surprised and excited. This love story is for the record books.

Lauren & Chase, Chase & Lauren. Thats what life was about. If you seen one, you were bound to see the other. From early adolescent these two were inseparable. They both knew from a very young age that they were just simply meant for each other. When one wanted to chase

This book had potential but I found both characters so immature. He was just so selfish! And so was she! I had a problem with how she wrote about military life and Camp Pendleton is not in the vicinity of Los Angeles. It's 1.5-2 hours away. His football career was just briefly mentioned. He could've been a plumber before enlisting. It felt insignificant. It was meh for me.

This was a emotional and enjoyable book.

Chase and Lauren had met when they 13 and had been together for 9 years. Lauren was graduating from college and Chase had been recruited to play in the NFL. They were soulmates. Then it all fell apart. It was written in 1st person one chapter Lauren the next chapter Chase. I really like this story and got caught up with the characters that at time I found myself crying for Chase or Lauren.

Lauren feels like her heart has been torn apart, will never heal, she is angry at a Chase. Chase now realizing he has made the worst decision of his life, but no way to contact her, but determined one day he will get her back. Will they be able to mend to broken hearts and forgive, trust again? Beautiful story❤!

A very good short story

I really liked the premise of this book. I liked that they had stayed true to each other for four years. I usually hate long separations but this one worked. The h almost moved on and I was a little nervous about that but in the end she still loved Chase. I understood her anger and why she did what she did but I also loved Chase. He was a good man. He never even thought of moving on. It was always Lauren. I loved that.

** I am voluntarily reviewing an Advanced Reader Copy of this book**
I liked this short book. Cole isn't sure of the direction his life is going, but finds out too late he only wants that life with Lauren. She feels betrayed and abandoned, so cuts herself off from him, his family, and mutual friends. What happens when he comes home to claim her is a solid, fast, interesting read. Free with KU subscription. Nella Tyler has done it again.

This book finished at 19%. It was ok, I liked the story well enough, even the characters, but they did annoy me a bit. There were quite a lot of grammatical errors and mistakes too which I hate.
