Beware of falling in love with the boy across the street.
Disappearing from their dangerous life in Chicago, Ginny and her mother went from riches to rags by way of a new life in the sleepy, rural suburbs of New York. Under the illusion of safety, Ginny blossomed into a beautiful young woman with hopes and dreams for a future her mother was determined she would have.
Lucas Young, her best friend’s oldest brother, was the dashing hero in all of her dreams. The man she fantasized about sweeping her off her feet and giving her the happily ever after she had only heard about in her mother’s fairytales.
Sometimes, reality wasn’t what we wanted it to be, though.
What would happen when Ginny found out Lucas wasn’t her Prince Charming after all? Instead, he was a rough and tumble soldier in extremely tarnished armor who had a propensity to break her heart.
Maybe happily ever after wasn’t meant for everyone.

Part 1 of Ginny and Lucas's love story..
From how this first book went I am assuming the three books in this series are going to be the past, present and future of lives of Lucas and Ginny.
We’ve know Lucas since the start of the Ex Ops series. Knew he was brooding over the one that had gotten away. This book gives us what happened between and to Lucas and Ginny from when he was 9 and she 7 up until he is 30 and she 27. It actually ends where book 2 in the series left off. So main purpose here was to show us the intense love these two had for each other when they were kids but it had been doomed from the start first with their ages, second with Lucas not wanting to make her have to suffer during all of his deployments and third with the past coming back and yanking Ginny and her mom back into hell. For 5 years Lucas has had no clue where Ginny disappeared to. He still doesn’t know at the end of this book but we the reader do and with that we also know it’s not going to be an easy road for these two to get to a happily ever after.
