I’m on an emotional high, speechless and lost for words! My quandary was how to put pen to paper and give this heart-wrenching story in all its glory, a worthy review. Regardless of my sleep deficit, I was adamant to string my thoughts together as soon as I’d turned the last page. It seemed to be a meagre set back seeing as the option of clicking the bookmark tab was never there. I have to admit my impatience to find out how the story would pan out got the better of me and resulted in speed reading. To wholly absorb certain angst-ridden scenes, I took my time to reread. Some left me flabbergasted, some shocked, others caused already shed tears to flow once again. Suffering alongside two of the most beautiful people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in a long, long time certainly paid off. My pleasure was as such that even though the author pushed me out of my comfort zone; and believe you me, she did . . . she cannily drew me back in making me sigh with relief. Yet it was a false alarm. What I believed to be clear cut from the beginning, was far from the truth.
The excellent meta-plot made a huge impact on me and as the story evolved, my anticipation grew more and more. Finding themselves in dire circumstances require the two-leading protagonists to take desperate measures and was nothing less than heart-breaking. Their tragedy seemed to be unresolvable; in fact, what occurs could possibly trigger off some very emotional feelings in the reader. I went in blind and have no regrets whatsoever; nonetheless, if you have issues with brutally selfish behaviour, sexual misconduct or morality, I would recommend reading the synopsis before one-clicking.
Chapter 3 gave me a teensy-weensy hint about a man who’s a seemingly respected member of his community. Although he gave me bad vibes, I truly tried to give him the benefit of the doubt. Chapter 4 and I was on full alert. From there on in, the story escalates in such a way that made me realise why history was repeating itself. This helped me put everything into perspective, but never could I excuse this person for his unacceptable traits or why he acted as he did following an event which served as a catalyst for even more horrendous actions. His insecurities vibrated off the pages; his dishonesty riled me so much I wanted to jump into the book and give him a good eBook bashing where it hurt most! How he debased a family member and had them living in fear made me; figuratively speaking, pull my hair out.
Camryn Gardner had savoured true love as a young adult; it was reciprocated, promises were made but when she lost her one and only, her broken heart would never heal — never forget. Why then, did she do what she did in the light of her loss! I questioned her past decision many times and couldn’t for the life of me come up with the right answer. Her meek and mild manner was like a protective smoke screen which in effect, confused me. And her conforming to what was dished out to her upset me to the point of desperation! That being said, watching her determination grow from strength to strength as the clock starts ticking gave me hope. Her unwavering protectiveness towards a loved one merits mentioning and exactly the reaction I would expect from any woman in a traumatic relationship as is hers.
Brecken Connelly’s been honoured with the title of hero and quite rightly so. He’s been to hell and back yet his heart is still where he left it. His homecoming was like watching a bomb drop in slow motion and twisted my heart and had me on tenterhooks for what could possibly come. I loved how he gradually opens up his innermost feelings to the woman who had always been the one constant in his life. I loved how he questioned without pressurising, how steadfast he was to make things right. I couldn’t help fall for this guy’s generosity.
I was convinced I was on the right path when actually, Ms Nicole’s shrewd storytelling led me down another. Ooh my, was I in for a surprise or three! She’s one of those authors who takes you on a bumpy ride, keeps you guessing throughout the book and then smooths everything over but not without putting you through the ringer.
When Nicole is about to publish a new book, I jump for joy as I’m never sure what’s she’s got in store for me. She’s one of those authors who takes you on a ride and a half, keeps you guessing and has you hanging on a precipice for the whole length of the book. Nicole, you have outdone yourself, Bravo!
Camryn is left reeling when Brecken returns home after six years of believing he was dead, but now he's back after he was held captive and all the emotions of dealing with what's happened, in that time, and now the man she will always love is moving next door, is a new torture for both Camryn and Brecken.
Nothing is easy and believe me reading the story was hard at times, but both Camryn and Brecken captured my heart and I felt for both them, but Brecken reminds Camryn he's true to his promise even after everything that's happened and will do anything for her until the end.
This read does contain themes some might find difficult, but it's a highly charged emotional and powerful read, that so no matter how tortured people may be, true love is never forgotten.
