My Review: 4/5 Stars
I was immediately drawn into Haley. Haley has experience pain like no other. A pain that throws her world upside down and leaves her a shell of her former self. Fleeing from the only home she has ever known she escapes to Alabama, hoping to start over.
Kyle King has a reputation of being completely unattainable. With his blue eye and good looks he is every girls dream, but he has a past with woman and a pattern of using them and leaving them. Always keeping everyone at arms length, that is until he bumps into Haley, literally.
Haley and Kyle have an instant connection. Regardless of how much either of them fights it, fate other plans. I found myself cheering them on. Through a series of trials and tribulations they learn how to rely on each other through the darkest of times. They learn the connection they have is unlike any other, but will it be enough?
