You know how the story goes. Don't you?
Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.
Not this story.
Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.
I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us, ripping us apart, and forever turned in to never.
He was gone. I was left to pick up the shredded pieces. Punished for the life inside me I couldn't give up. the very thing I didn't know would bring me out of darkness years later, could be the very thing that brings us together again for a second chance.
If we can only survive the ripple effects of the pain of the past and what lies ahead…

This was a great book! Loved every minute!
Brutally honest, captivating, gut-wrenching, beautiful
Brutally honest, captivating, gut-wrenching, beautiful. That is what I feel like I just read, a truly open and honest look at the challenges a person deals with when faced with a most heinous act inflicted upon them. Lacey’s world is shattered in one night and she has to figure out how to rebuild herself for the love of her son. Landon walks away from the woman he loves, unable to cope with what happened and that she chooses to keep the baby. When years later, 2 boys become best friends at school, who knew that Lacey and Landon would be reunited. This is a full on ugly cry book as you step through all the emotions that both Lacey and Landon face. The challenges for 2 young boys, one looking for a father and the other not wanting his parents to break apart, made my heart bleed. There are so many hard choices in life, no easy answers, this romance showed the beauty of love while being honest that the road to happiness is not easy.
