I received an ARC, and was unable to read this as soon as I got it because adulting. Once I stared this, I could not put it down. Brittainy C. Cherry is one of my favorite authors. Her stories are always full of the type of emotion that just makes your heart burst. This story was no different. Grey and Ellie had both gone through devastating loss at different times in their lives. Grey and Ellie always found each other in their time of need. It was so obvious they were meant to be, but life always seemed to have a different agenda. I didn’t know how they would fight through all their pain, loss, and devastation in order to get their hea. It was a rocky road and I rooted for them during every twist and turn. This book did not disappoint!
Greyson East left his mark on me.
As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near.
Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again.
When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined.
I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man.
The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain.
When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my job and my job only.
He made me promise not to try to get to know him, not to recall the memories I’d treasured all this time.
But, sometimes, I saw the boy I’d once known in his stormy eyes. I saw the Greyson who smiled and laughed, who had stolen a young girl’s heart, and there was no doubt in my mind that this boy was worth fighting for.
I was given a second chance with the one who’d left his mark on me. All I hoped was that somehow I’d leave a mark on his soul, too.
