This isn’t the man she married…
Jenny Buchanan never considered what “for better or for worse” meant when she married Adam Buchanan at nineteen. Six years and two little boys later, “for worse” arrives in the form of a tornado that ravages Slippery Rock and injures Adam. Now he’s a stranger to his family…and love won’t be enough to bring him back.
Only when Jenny asks him to move out does Adam become the husband she needs…but Adam isn’t the only one who’s changed. As their attraction sparks back to life, Jenny and Adam must learn what it is to grow up—and grow together—before this small-town breakup lasts forever.

BREAKUP IN A SMALL TOWN
Turmoil and heartache snare our attention with this latest dip into Kristina Knight’s Slippery Rock series. If you’ve read the previous books, you will recognize Adam and Jenny and already be familiar with what happened to him. I was hooked on the story just from enjoying the series, but watching them fight for their relationship kept me even more enthralled. She was hard to like, but I enjoyed their story.
Jenny Buchanan thought she had a happy life until her husband was almost killed in the tornado that struck Slippery Rock. Now she’s living with a cold and bitter man who is nothing like the man she married, and it’s making her take a big look back at their life together in a way she never did. She’s seeing ways that she never spoke up for herself, and ways she settled instead of reaching for what she wanted.
Adam Buchanan is shocked out of his new life of anger and self-pity when his wife asks him to move out. She’s tired of living half a life with him and the man he has become since his injury. He knows in his heart that she deserves better than the life he’s left her with, but he can’t bring himself to leave and give up on what they have shared. Can changing his attitude and trying to find a way to cope with his illness make his wife fall back in love with him again?
