Now ten years since he watched her walk away, he’s desperate to win back the only woman he ever loved.
But it won’t be easy.
Mia’s heart was shattered by Nick and now, just when she’d begun to piece it back together, it’s been broken again, bringing their past to the surface, including her own secret about that day everything went wrong.
Claudia Connor. Enough said. The book made me feel like I was at Disney on Mr Toads wild ride. From the emotional mountaintop down to the pit of hell, this is one great story. Since I assume you read the blurb and get the general idea, I'll just throw my feelings for the book out here.
Nick couldn't have been more abrasive initially with his sister in the hospital, seeing Mia and then blaming everyone in the span of about two minutes. But that's Nick, federal agent, raised his siblings, fell in love with Mia in college, endured his sister's kidnapping and torture and let Mia slip away.
Mia was off to med school when she decided to come home to help him with her, after the incident, Nick isn't coping, he pretty much opens the door for Mia and out she walks. And there's a lot Nick doesn't know about Mia and what's happened between then and now. 10 years is a long time, so matter how you cut it. Mia isn't sure she can risk her heart with him again and has so much healing to do from an unbearable loss. She slowly lets Nick in. Nick, I don't know. There were times I looked at him and wanted to shake him and times when he made me melt.
He has to deal with the notion that his sister is in love and engaged, has a job she loves and a man who loves her. I really liked Stephen. Stephen stood his ground with Nick and I liked that. He's good for her. He has to deal with the aftermath of how he demolished his relationship with Mia and her life after that. He's got an overflowing plate.
This book is stunningly beautiful, despite the pain and the history. It's second chances, new love and forgiveness of others and self. It's a huge do over that not many people get and or are given and will take the risk. Thank you Claudia for a deeply moving story.
If you haven't read the series, please do. And yes, you can start here. I highly recommend this book.

This is an amazing addition to this series. I laughed, I cried. I read slowly so it wouldn't end too soon. But it did. I always think it can't get better than Worth the Fall (the first book in this series), but if not better, it's just as great! While each book can stand alone, start at the beginning & read all 4 books. Trust me, you won't want to miss any one of them.
Worth the read
I was captivated from the first page in this continuing series of the McKinney brothers. This is the first book by Ms Connor I've read, but now feel the need to read the first two books in this series.
It's been quite awhile since an author has been able to evoke as much emotion from me for a book as this author has. Her characters have so much depth, dimension and heart that they fairly leap off the page...with her descriptive narratives, it was very much the same as watching a movie in my mind...Ms Connor is just that good. In many ways, her writing brings Nora Roberts to mind in how well the characters are developed and real.
I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more work from Ms Connor as this book has whet my appetite for more from this author.
