Her rise, her fall, and her will to continue on...
At eighteen, I met him; a handsome young man with amber colored eyes, and with one look, he claimed my heart.
The world was at our feet, and we had our futures planned. But even the best-laid plans go awry when you’re blessed with a most beautiful surprise.
In a matter of minutes, our lives changed.
The years that followed were filled with change and adventure. Our life wasn’t perfect, but we were happy, or so I thought.
As I was living my dream, our life was slowly unraveling. The moment I stepped off that plane, my worst nightmare became a reality.
Now, I’m empty and lifeless.
I live in my own personal hell, drowning in my guilt and trying to forget the memories.
That is until a knock on my door changes everything, and I’m forced to face my past.

* I received this book from Book Enthusiast Promotions and the Author in return for a fair and honest review. *
Disclaimer: Be prepared to have your heart torn out, ripped up, mended, and sewn back together. In other words, have a box of Kleenex ready!
While I wrote that disclaimer to be funny it is absolutely true. This book was written in such a raw powerful way that I don’t think anyone can escape its grasps at your heartstrings. The cover to this book is absolutely beautiful but there is something about it that screams heartbreak and sadness and true enough, it speaks for itself.
This is a love story and is a romance. It has a few sexual explicit scenes. It has some humor and is full of love. That love doesn’t have to just be between two lovers, but between friends and family. You read about a bond so strong between numerous people that it could definitely make those that haven’t been able to experience a bond so strong reach out and grasp towards those things. It sure made me wish I had a little bit more!
This story is full of mistakes and forgiveness. It is a story of a woman with a heart so big that she could teach each and every single one of us a lesson. It’s truly an amazing story. First and foremost, this story is beautiful and raw. Beautiful doesn’t always mean sunshine and daisies and raw doesn’t always mean heartache and sorrow. These characters’ experience more in their lifetime than most. I think if you read this story you will take a lesson or two from this story, at the minimum.
While this book didn’t just have a few tear drops falling out my eyes, it had me sobbing quietly hoping I wouldn’t wake my husband. Just when I thought I made it through all the sadness it strikes again. I’m so glad that I read the story and am so glad to have come across the author’s work. It’s one of a kind and she has a knack of bringing out some real feels in her stories so far! I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
After years of comments from her husband to write and a chance meeting by the city pool where she met one of her favorite authors, ML decided to take a leap of faith into the amazing and exciting world of writing. Terrified, nervous, and with a stomach full of butterflies, she published her debut novel, Leap of Faith, and her second novel, Imperfectly Beautiful will release 26 January 2016.
To all the wonderful people who will read her work, thank you. Thank you for taking a chance on her. ♥
