Blurb

That moment your life changes.

That moment that changes your life.

That moment you love someone more than you love yourself.

That was the moment we gave our son up for adoption and the moment I was left bare. A wide-open space that would forever be empty.

There are moments that define you as a person, moments that prove just how strong you are, moments you push yourself to keep going forward when all you really want to do is give up. It was in one of those moments when I reached out and found him waiting for me.

When Shelby Calder left home fifteen years ago, she never planned on returning to the Alaskan town she left behind. But after the death of her grandfather and a bitter divorce, she hopes going home will be a fresh start for her and her ten-year-old son.

Zach Watters has made a lot of mistakes in his life. But when he sees Shelby Calder, looking more beautiful than ever, standing outside her childhood home, he promises himself that letting her go won’t be a mistake he ever makes again.

Some things never change and love is one of them.

Excerpt

“Then why did you marry her?” I ask, wondering if I’m really ready to go there with him, but it’s too late to change my mind. The question is out, and as much as I don’t want to know the answer, I need to know the answer.

“I wanted my kids to have what I didn’t. I believed that, with time, we could find a way to be happy.”

“Maybe we shouldn’t talk about this,” I say, changing my mind as nausea and jealousy turn my stomach.

“You loved your ex, baby. I know you did. I didn’t have that. I wanted it but never had it with her or anyone else since you.”

“Please stop.” Feeling tears burn the back of my eyes for him, I close them tight. Max and I were happy and in love in the beginning, and I hate knowing Zach never had that… the kids didn’t see or feel that.

“I wish my past didn’t hurt you so much. I’m sorry for hurting you the way I have. If I could take your pain away, I would.” He gathers me against him and tucks my head under his chin.

“As sad as it makes me, I wish you would have had that with her or someone else,” I say, and his arms tighten so much that my lungs compress.

“I don’t,” he growls.

“What?” I wheeze, and he loosens his grip just enough for me to take a breath.

“I don’t want to think about what would have happened if I had been with her or someone else when you came back. I don’t want to face that demon inside of me that knows what I would have done.”

“Zach—”

“I’ve been in love with you for almost eighteen years. I carried your missing pieces around inside me for that long, Shelby. I know it would have made me an asshole, but there is only one you. You’re the only place I’ve ever called home.” His voice is thick with emotion, and that wound inside of me fills up a little bit more. I hate his words, but a part of me is relieved he feels that way, that he feels so deeply for me.

“There’s been a wide open space inside me since we placed Samuel and I left you behind. But, from the moment I came back, it’s slowly been filling up.”

He goes quiet at my words. Several moments pass before he speaks again. “One day, that space will be full. I swear, with everything I have in me, I will make sure it’s overflowing and that you never feel empty again.”

REVIEW

5 Stars

Aurora Rose Reynolds has surpassed herself with this book, I always love her books but this one has definitely topped the charts! This was a beautifully written book about getting a second chance at love!
Shelby and Zach were childhood sweethearts who after doing something so brave and selfless lost their way from each other! This book jumps 15 years until they are reunited after both facing the trials and tribulations life threw at them! Both characters have tried to move on with their lives with other people but finally end up realising they are meant to be together.
You could feel the connection between the two characters when they meet again after so many years. Even time and circumstances couldn’t change their love for each other.
These two characters are definitely one of my favourite couples from the amazing ARR, they were just so loveable and you couldn’t help fall in love with the whole family.
I loved the fact that this was a dual pov book, I felt like had this just been in Shelby’s pov it wouldn’t have had the same impact. There were also a few chapters written in Aubrey’s pov which was great, we got to see what she thought of certain situations and her reaction to things!
Anyone who follows Aurora will know that this book has a special place in her heart and I think it shows the type of writer she is when she can make it a special place in a readers heart! This book had me gripped from the very beginning and I couldn’t put it down!
This book had so much raw emotion in it I felt like my heart was breaking but that wasn’t the only thing it had. There were tears, some laughter, some HOT steamy scenes and a whole heaping pile of love thrown into the mix!
This is one of the best second chance romances I have read and a must read book but definitely have some tissues at the ready!!
