This book is a good 2nd chance love story. I found easy to read and couldn’t put it down.
Kat has had devastating loss and Rey has loved her from a far. When they both have a second chance they take it. This book you feel all of the characters emotions and Janet has gave it a realistic story line. I love that you can really connect to the characters.
My heart went out to Kat for all she had to endured. You will smile, laugh, and cry. If you want a good read then this it.
