Publisher's Summary

Gripping, heart-stopping, and an incredibly epic journey with a twist you'll never see coming. Best-selling author Meghan Quinn brings you a modern take on an old-fashioned romance that will leave you breathless and wanting more. 

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone. Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me - Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.
My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man. And I learned a long damn time ago the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions - at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination. 

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life...changed. One night had me colliding headfirst with the biggest distraction of my life: Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful. Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend. Each kiss faded decade-long dreams. And with one single incident, I fly off course.

Heartbreaking And Beautiful

This book is so freaking beautiful!

Rori and Colby have a beautiful love story.

This is book one of a duet and ends on an interesting cliffhanger.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell were fantastic in their performances. They really made the emotion real.

Wow...totally in love with this duet

Connected with colby n rory right away. I was totally heartbroken when he left. I was not into rory and strider getting together...although i liked him he wasnt strong enough to be the alpha male that i love to read about. In the end i love how mature colby and rory and strider handled everything. They were emotional but pulled themeselves together. Colby really loved her and his friend. I would love to hear what happens to him and hopefully he’ll beat the crap out of Ted(blahhh hate him)

pretty good

I actually liked this book, I knew what the ending outcome was already going to be but how the author gave a major cliff hanger through me for a loop. i laughed at myself about how mad i got, not at the book but how the characters left it. I recommend this book!

@#$% This book

Wrong and bad and no. You can't make me care about 2 people and then essentially say "None of what you just heard matters." No thanks.
