From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker comes an epic story about sacrifice, friendship, and the awe-inspiring power of love.
Maggie: Ten years ago, Cash Armstrong stole my heart. Then he promptly joined the army—dragging my best friend with him—and left me crying on the front porch in a red sequined prom dress. Now he's back. They're both back. Cash, the one who still has my heart. And Luc, the one who saved my life.
Cash: How do you know if you’re at the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end? That's what I've been trying to figure out since a traumatic brain injury made me "unfit to serve." I'm back in New Orleans, and picking up the shattered pieces of my past means I must confront where my life's journey began... and where it all might end.
Luc: Long ago, Maggie May was mine. Not mine in the way you might think. She was mine because she was my only friend. Then Cash came along and we became brothers by something stronger than blood. We became brothers by choice. When tragedy struck, I was forced to make a decision that changed all our lives. I thought, after ten years, it was safe to come back home. I was wrong...

I'm not even sure where to begin reviewing this book. I have mixed emotions about the story. The fun times are soooooo much fun. But there's always a BUT during the fun. How can you be having fun when you're waiting for the other shoe to drop? There are some heavy issues in this book. Guilt, love, abuse, suicidal thoughts, heartbreak, desertion and taking care of one another.
I enjoyed the Sunday brunches at Cafe du Monde and the adventures that would follow. They were so much fun. Having been to New Orleans before it was exciting to see something that is not on the tourist map.
Watching Luc and Cash fix up the house left me wondering how are they going to earn a living. They've been home now for a few weeks, but neither has a job, nor are they looking for one. I guess they could've put away a chunk of money while they were in the service, but what are their plans. I guess I'll have to read Volume 2 to see if my questions are answered. I feel I have more questions than answers. I wonder if they will be answered.
Oh my goodness!! I can’t say enough about this series!! I finished it in two days. I just couldn’t put it down. Definitely a tear jerker. Love the story line and Maggie and Luc,Cash and Maggie, and all three of them together!!
Can’t wait to read the next two books
