Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.
But now he’s back.
I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.
Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.
One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey bought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

Raw, emotional and full of angst!!! Oh the feels!!! Elliot & Wade have stolen my heart with their heartbreaking story. This is second chance romance at its finest. This is a fully emotional book, full of characters that are flawed, that make mistakes, but they are human!

Elliot was young and afraid when she had to choose between her family and her only love. Now Wade is back and all the heartache and bitterness has returned with him.
One tragic event will reunite them and amidst their pain, they will rediscover their lost, painful love. They will realise that the feelings that once united them and at the same time kept them apart, are still buried deep inside them.
Can they move on apart or will they will be brought back together like magnets? Is love strong enough to stand the rough passing of time? Can two hearts keep beating together even when apart?

I do believe this is Staci Hart’s best work yet! I loved the emotion she put into her writing! Simply magical!!! I recommend it.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.
