Publisher's Summary

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again. 

After 15 years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another. 

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side. 

All I wanted was for him to come back to me. 

Then, Jackson Emery appeared. 

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart. 

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him. 

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat. 

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear. 

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away. 

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me. 

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch....

I prayed for him to be mine. 

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

A Romance about Ordinary people dealing with life

This is a MUST READ ROMANCE. I love the fact that this story is about ordinary people trying to deal with live and death. Heartache and tragedy. Love and hate. It shows that compassion, kindness and love can help heal a broken heart.
NARRATION was AWESOME!

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

Another great book by this author! I've listened to them all because I always know that I will love whatever she writes and I know it will always be an emotional ride. This book has everything... sexy bad boy, small town darling, mean girls, family issues and all kinds of other hard things. I loved Grace and how she didn't let Jackson push her around but I wish she would have had that same backbone with everyone else. Jackson is a jerk but deep down his is a good guy with lots of issues. This book has a great HEA! Loved the way this one left me feeling.

The narration was PERFECT! Loved both of them, they were really the best choice for these characters

Disgrace

Oh my heart, this book will grab you by the heartstrings. Grace and her husband are separating after a long hard road in their marriage. Grace finds herself back in her hometown where her father is the pastor which means she is one of the town’s darlings.

Ahh, small towns and their gossip normally I love it but these busybodies are not so kind, smile to your face and talk behind your back.

Grace meet’s Jackson the towns “bad boy/reject” he isn’t all that nice but Grace just sees something in him that she can’t walk away from. They forge a friendship that grows.

Graces ex isn’t a nice fella, but once he sees what he can’t have he wants her back. Isn’t that how it always it.

I won’t keep regurgitating the story you can listen for yourself.

I loved the characters; Ms. Cherry has a way of making you engage with them, you root for them you cheer them on. You’re sad when they are sad.
My favorite character was Grace's sister.
My least favorite was Autumn.
My favorite character that grew I have two, Jackson’s father and Graces Mother.

I was blown away by the narration, I loved the southern accent? I think that is what it was. It was perfect and I am so glad it didn’t sound forced but like the narrators actually speak like that.

This should be ten stars!

I am in awe. This is an incredible story. It has love, angst, loyal dog Tucker, tragedy, bullying, wonderful uncle and this is just part of Jackson’s story. Her story has a less than supportive Mother, a cheating husband, history of seven miscarriages, an adoring and supportive sister. This goody too shoes everybody pleaser learns from Jackson how to discover herself and those around them get some lessons too. I laughed out loud, cried blooper tears, and stayed up ALL night to finish it. It is a treasure. Get the narration too. It’s excellent. Really brings the story to life. Highly recommend. Gonna be on my to be reread list.

Heartwarming story

This was a great love story. Not all flowers and sunshine —- it had darkness and mistakes and growth along with deep love. I really liked this.

Loved!

I absolutely loved this story. I cried with young Jackson and my heart broke for “princesses” 7 angels. I loved their accents, I loved their connection, I literally laughed, cried and was engrossed in this story. It’s been a long time since I’ve found a book that has brought so many emotions out of me. I’m having a hard time finding another book now that I’m finished with this one because it was THAT GOOD!

It was alright

This was an ok listen, but didn’t grab me by the heart like ‘Behind the Bars’ (another book by this author) did. The small town pantomime cruelty and small mindedness got a bit tiresome, and the side character personality turn arounds at the end felt very fairytale and fake. It was alright though!
