One lie can destroy everything…
After enduring years of manipulation and an immeasurable amount of loss, Charlotte Kelly makes one last ditch effort to change her life and try to find happiness again. She knows she’ll see him when she moves back to Wisconsin. She’s planning on it, the connection she still feels to him after all these years is undeniable. But one lie tore them apart years ago, and she’s afraid some mistakes can’t be forgiven.
Travis Parker doesn’t like liars. When he was younger, lies burned him in a bad way. It only took one summer with Charlotte’s innocence to know that she was it for him. When he thought he finally had something to look forward to, one misguided lie shattered everything he believed. Now, Char’s back, but she’s not the same girl he once knew.
This is not your typical love story, it is so much more. Anna Brooks you hooked me in the first chapter and I couldn’t put it down.
Charlotte when she went to her cousins graduation party she had no idea that she was going to meet a guy that had the potential to change her life forever. She was only going to be in town for a couple of weeks before going back to home and to school, so one little lie couldn’t hurt anything, or could it?
Travis has had a difficult time since graduating high school, always dreaming of becoming a firefighter. But his dreams changed after losing his high school sweetheart and their baby. When a gorgeous girl saves him from drowning one night and then he finds her asleep on his couch the next morning he had no idea what to think. He was mesmerized by Charlotte and enjoyed his time with her. But everything changed the day he found out about her lie; he hates liars so he turns his back on Charlotte.
After many tragedies and much heartache Charlotte finally returns back to her hometown, trying to escape her horrible life. She has suffered much loss and torment that require her to begin counseling. She doesn’t feel as though she is good enough to be loved by anyone, that no one will ever want her after everything what she has endured. One fateful day, Charlotte is in a car accident that she shouldn’t have been able to walk away from but she did. Her past comes back into her life and she discovers that things aren’t always as they seem.
This story is very touching. There are parts that are very sad, but you just have to keep reading and not give up hope. The connection that Charlotte and Travis have from the beginning is undeniable. It might even be described as love at first sight. But as we learn no relationship can be built on lies.
Anna Brooks has done a magnificent job in the creating and writing of this story. Some of the surprises that come up caught me off guard and kept me very interested to see where it was going to take me. The characters are so lovable and Travis seems to do a dream come true. I can’t wait to see what you will have in store for us with future books!!!!
“There are so many things I want to say to you. I can’t thank you enough for staying.”
“Youdon’t need to thank me. I take care of the people I love. It’s ingrained in me to be a protector, and I happen to love you very much, so my services are all yours.” He smiles again. “Everything I have is yours, my heart, my home. I know I’m not a millionaire or anything, but I promise you, absolutely nobody will ever love you as much as I do. There is no object, no monetary amount, that signifies my love for you. There are no limits on the hell I’d walk through to make sure you were happy.”
