Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.
After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.
I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.
All I wanted was for him to come back to me.
Then, Jackson Emery appeared.
He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.
We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.
Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.
I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.
When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.
Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.
I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…
I prayed for him to be mine.
Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.
This was one of my most anticipated reads this summer. I didn’t even know what the book was about, I just knew Brittainy was releasing a new story. I read this book in one sitting. The feels. Always Always the feels with a Brittainy C. Cherry read. At 20% I was overwhelmed with happiness at how connected I felt to these characters that early in the book. I looked down at my kindle and screamed “FCUK YASSSS!!!!!!!!!!! CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Then I allowed this book to take over my life. I fell into Grace and Jackson’s story and didn’t come up for air until the very last page. I felt like I actually went on a visit to Chester, Georgia. This story of forgiveness, family, and love consumed me.
