4 out of 5 stars
The author gave me some broken characters that I fell in love with, only to leave me going What The Hell! Yes I yelled at her on Facebook because here I was happily reading and then all of a sudden wham bam thank you mam! Twist after twist hits and I'm left reeling! I'm left wondering is there more to come? Because I sure damn hope there is! I need more.... I won't say anymore because I don't want to ruin it just read it and be prepared.

“The day I went back to go get Abby. She was just an infant. I was eighteen years old, bright eyed and bushy tailed. I thought that I was bigger than the world, stronger than him. It didn’t end well, though. It ended with me in the hospital, not able to remember too much at first. I have flashbacks all the time and you’ve actually witnessed a couple of my freak outs. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you sooner what was going on. I just didn’t know how. My dad almost beat me to death and shortly after took his own life. He slammed me repeatedly into our hallway mirror and that’s why I have a hard time to this day looking into them. I hate remembering. Sadly, his words hurt me more than the physical. I was used to the physical. I deep down was still hoping he loved me despite it. But he didn’t, he couldn’t. But I would always love him.” I took a breath and sat contemplating to myself why he couldn’t love me, why I was never good enough. Daxton interrupted my thoughts and finally spoke, his shaky voice causing my nerves to throb.

“Well…I don’t know what else to say. None of my words can possibly take away your pain or go back in time but, I love you. I know it isn’t a consolation and I also know it’s too soon for you.I don’t expect you to say it back or expect anything at all for that matter. We have only been seeing each other for a couple of months now, but I just want you to know. I need you to know. I love you so fuckin’ much already it’s hard to breathe. It feels like my heart is trying to escape from my chest and take residence in the palm of your hands. I want to wrap you in my arms and protect you from all the things you’ve ever had to face. I want to go back in time and hurt the bastard for hurting you. I want to hunt down any asshole who doesn’t love you the way that you deserve. You may be broken Ava, but you don’t need to be fixed. You are the epitome of perfect to me. You’re all I’ve ever wanted and I feel so got damn lucky to have you in my life. The both of you complete me. You and Abby are my family, my angels. Our pasts have been both pretty shitty the majority of the time, but happiness wouldn’t be so satisfying if we didn’t have to work for it. I’m not saying that I am happy about your suffering or the broken heart I faced…but I am a selfish fucker for saying that I’m glad we were lead on the paths that broke us down…because that path is what  lead me to you. “

Add to Goodreads -


Daxton James holds the world in the palm of his hands. He has finally met the love of his life and is more than ready to start a family with her and her precious daughter, Abby. He has the best friends that anyone could ask for, a career doing two things he loves the most-music and helping people and his family piecing themselves back together, slowly but surely. Everything has fallen into place in his life and he couldn't be more happy about it.

There is only one problem---He can’t remember any of it.

Daxton was involved in a serious accident which has left him fighting for his life, while his loved ones wait in the midst, unsure if he is even going to come out of it alive. Thankfully he does, but his short term memory can’t say the same. He only remembers the Daxton he had been years previous. The playboy, the rock star and hopelessly devoted to a woman that is not Avalynn Wright.

The doctors tell Avalynn to just let his memory come back on it’s own and to not push him too much, fearful that forcing his memory will cause permanent scarring and trauma. Avalynn is so thankful to have Daxton alive, that if letting him go will keep him happy and healthy, she will do just that, even if it means killing off herself; bit by bit. Avalynn struggles to get a grasp on what is a reality and what is created by the stresses of her life which causes her to downward spiral, with nobody there to break her fall.

Will Avalynn and Daxton make it through this or is their relationship built only as strong as a House of Cards, ready to crumble at any moment?
