Publisher's Summary

He was my best friend, my best not-really-big-brother and my best protector. He was my best everything. He was mine.

Coming home is hard for Lane. Hard because Harry, her beloved uncle, has died suddenly, but also because of him. Kale.

Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane's reason for leaving home and moving to New York. Seeing him with someone else, in love with someone else, shouldn't have hurt. But it did. It really, really did. So she upped sticks and left, started a new life and cut herself off from her past.

But now she's back and all the feelings are right there. As if she had never left.

Emotions are running high for everyone, and tragedy has a funny way of bringing people together. But is Lane reading the signs right? Are they still just friends, or is there something more?

Not your typical romance

This story is compelling. It has sweet and tender as well as traumatic and emotionally distressing. I liked the characters and the narration was great. The various accents were well done imo.

My only complaint is that there was just way too much time in the past dealing with backstory. I don't really enjoy stories that go back and forth between past and present and this one does. Mostly it's in the present. I would have preferred to spend more time with the main characters getting to know each other again and resolving the past.

Many good things about this one

OMG....

Best book I have heard in a long time. It surprised me again and again. And I cried so hard through some of the chapters. This is definitely a book I will read/listen to again.

Terrible Narration ..... READ THE BOOK!!!

AMAZING!

It is not often that I fan girl over a book. This book is the exception. The narration almost caused me to walk away and not read the book. If I had done that I would have missed this beautiful love story. It literally had tears pouring down my face. That is how good the portrayal of Laney's emotions got to me.

This is the first book I have read by this author. It will not be the last. I do not often have a book that stays with me and touches me in the way this story did. It is extremely well written, very detailed and I became invested in this story without realizing!

This is a book I will buy in hardcover and keep. It is that good. Bravo Ms. Casey I cannot wait to read your next book!!

The audio is NOT credit worthy. If you have Kindle Unlimited you can read the book for free and the audio is included.

This book is so good...

This story was so real. The emotional roller coaster had me laughing, crying and thinking of all the similar experiences in my own life. This is by-far the best book I've listened to in a very long time. It is romance but there are so many things outside of that included that it feels true!!! Great book!!!!

Outstanding!

I absolutely love this writer! I've read this book and Frozen from L.A. Casey, both of which are written so well. Great writing! This author is ruining me for other romance novels because the stories are so much better. Can't wait to read more from this exceptional writer.

More than I was expecting!!! Well done LA Casey.

I had the pleasure to listen to this in audio book.. the narrator did a wonderful job so easy to understand.

I didn't know what to expect, the name doesn't give much away but I was in love with the story from page one.. the story itself is a beautiful one. wonderfully written and with so much love.. the right amount of sexy.. the Right amount of playfulness. and what's more important.. a HEA. who doesn't love a HEA?. I do..

Very emotional but beautiful story!

Narration was wonderful in the English accent. Kale & Laney's tale is a heartbreaking journey but it is definitely worth a credit!!!

I loved this story

I have read and listened to so many books, these also included books written by L. A. Casey she writes in such a way that you get into the book and forget that you are ready about fictional characters and just think that they are really, to a fact that you want to talk to them and console them as a friend for them to lean on you.

You get sucked into the story and lives of these lovely people and you can't help but read on and try to find out what happens next.

I cried so much in this book and they are for obvious reasons when or if you have read this book.

this book will give you a sense of FAMILY and that family is everything... to which I agree.

L. A. Casey I have read many of your books and to which comes to no surprise. I will continue on with reading, I hope for many more books to read in the near by future.

Most long winded book I've read in a long time

Omg this book is awful, it's so long winded and dragged out, I had so much trouble finishing it and it really wasn't worth making it till the end.
Don't waste your time and money

Simply depressing really

I really struggled to like anything about this book. One of the central characters is not explored enough. Hard going.

Tear jerker lovely story

Meant to be...
beautifully written and emotionally heavy - definitely a few ugly tears were shed. Narrator does a lovely job. It's so nice to have a story not based in America too with appropriate accents used.
