**I was given this book as a ARC for an honest review**

I just finished this book, and all I have to say is OH WOW!
I CRIED, feels gif photo: cry tumblr_lwxn1xwbWX1qewxhd.gif I laughed, laugh gif photo: laugh laugh.gif
This book gave me so many feelings !! feels gif photo: feels gif HOWDOIHOLDINTHESEFEELS.gif

So that being said I give it 5 heart wrenching stars!!!

There is not much to say without giving spoilers away, but I will do my best. This book had me captivated from page one!
I would have to say this book is different then any book I have ever read, the author sucked me right into Kayley's life and I never left, I think I still might be there.

Kayley loses her perfect life when her husband Alex dies in a tragic accident right before their child is born. She has to learn to live without this man, and raise a child, and be a Mom and learn to be strong right when she doesn't feel like there is anything to be strong
for. She has a great support system, Mom and Dad, in-laws, and best friends, but her heart is still broken and feels like it will never mend or be right again. She has given up on love, and happily ever afters, I feel Kayley just exists, even with a beautiful baby she is just half of the person she could be because of all she has lost.


Ben "Dr Yummy" meets Kayley when she has nothing left to give, BUT he is willing to help Kayley bring out in her what she thought was long gone. And he is willing to accept her as she is. Damaged and all. Together she learns to put back together her life. She learns to love again. And anyone who has lost someone that they love, knows how hard that is to do. And this book shows her ups and downs, her sadness and her happiness.

Ben is damaged too, he may not have lost someone so tragically, but he has lost none the less. He has trust issues, and although he has let Kayley in a big misunderstanding happens and he has to chose whether he can trust again, or if he is going to put up walls and shut Kayley out.

I think my favorite part about this book was not Kayley and Ben, and that is saying a lot because I LOVE them.. It was Ben and Alexis~ Kayley's daughter. The way he interacted with her and the things he did with her and for her, just tore my heart out and it was just beautiful. I wish all men could be this way with children. I cannot say enough about this, it was just perfection to me.

This is a heart wrenching story, it brought out all these feelings in me and half way through the book, I just sat there and cried. I got it together and kept reading, but it was an emotional roller coaster that kept me wanting more! OH there is so much I want to tell you and I can't !!

YOU must read this!!! It is not a book to pass by. I cannot wait to read more from L.L. Collins she is an amazing writer, so much talent.

This book is about first love, tragedy, heart break, love, second chances, family, best friends, trust, and life. the end gif photo: the end gif.gif
