He gave up. Understanding women, especially this one, was like trying to learn molecular fusion while drinking Jack Daniels. Pointless.
If there was the slightest chance I was capable of leaving you, there’s a grea ...more

Kelly Moran never fails to pull me into a story while also succeeding in keeping me there. Her character development is always stellar and her details (large to minute) create vivid pictures of every person, place and event.

There are three main characters in this book - Nate, Olivia and Justin ...more
