Second-chance romance, forbidden love, best friend’s little sister
A promise written on a coaster.
A lost night in a dark room.
Grayson Cole was my brother’s best friend.
He was all of my firsts.
Then he went away…
Drew Harris was just a kid, a senior in high school, my best friend’s little sister.
They said she was too young to know her feelings.
I was too old to have them, so I left to join the military.
Four years passed.
Loss, injury, angry words I can never take back.
I’m home, but I’m not the same.
Neither is she.
Now she’s a woman with flashing blue eyes, long blonde hair, and gorgeous curves.
She’s the same sweet smile, the same sassy mouth…
I could never say No to her before.
I should say No for her sake.
She deserves better than what I’ve become, scarred and damaged.
“They told me to stay away from you.
I went away to try… God, I tried.
Now everything has changed. I’m back, and
I’ll do whatever it takes to make you mine…”
A full-length, STAND-ALONE CONTEMPORARY romance about first love, redemption, and finding your way home. No cheating; No cliffhangers.
4.5 Star Review by Lorena
Best friend's brother, forbidden -- Gahhhh, just my type of read and perfect for a weekend read too!
Grayson was Drew's brothers best friend since childhood and she's always loved him, from as far back as she can remember. Grayson always has harbored feelings for Drew but he knew she was off limits not only because she was his best friend's little sister but he never thought she was good enough for him and she wanted the best for her, even if that meant not him.
Grayson and Drew's brother joined the military and he comes back a broken mess. He can't face Drew and instead he finds the cowards way out. He blames himself for something that was inevitable and totally out of his control. He thinks that Drew will not forgive him for what happened.
Both beautiful people, I loved Drew's determination and how much she loved Grayson and was willing to do anything for his love. Grayson, he was just a beautiful man who had demons that were making it hard for him on a daily basis.
The question was, can these two find a way to each other despite all the heartbreak and pain they both endured throughout their lifetime??
This was a beautiful book, everything about it was just.....beautiful. It was captivating and engaging and you will totally fall in love with the characters in the book, even the secondary characters. There are serious issues that are mentioned in this book and issues that are true life events and people actually go through. I loved how real this book felt.
