What Others Are Saying:
Louise from Goodreads – “This was a great read that I devoured from start to finish and would happily recommend to other.”

Would you risk it all for your one true love?
The one boy who’d broken my heart.
He promised he’d come for me…
But he never did.
Faced with a choice, I succumbed to a life I never wanted. Now I’m on the run. The goal: buy a fake passport and get out of the country.
Then I ran into him.
The skinny, shy boy was all grown up. Sexy, confident, and promising me everything I’d always dreamt of having with him.
Could I trust him with the truth? With my heart? Again?
Listening to Alex say that he had always thought of me tugged at my heart. Could that really be true? Alex. If it hadn’t been for seeing both Jay and then Granny, I might not have believed it. Granny was unmistakable. There was no way I’d ever forget her. Time might have aged her appearances, but to me she’d held onto her timeless beauty as the grandmotherly figure I’d loved so much. Then there was Alex. I had stared at him and thought of the possibilities of him being my Alex. Really my first real love. My best friend from way back when.
More than anything, I wanted to open the door. However, doing that would open the wounds that now were faded scars. I had waited for him after we moved. He had promised he’d come for me.
What a powerful read! This story was as real as it could be in the feelings for the heroine. She has a hard life that keeps getting worse yet deep down she still has hope that it will get better. She doesn’t know where the feeling comes from but it is there is her need to keep fighting. Josie does a marvelous job of seeing the struggle that goes on with our female lead. She is strong, determined, and trust no one. Well that’s not all together true. She trusted one boy long ago but he let her down when it mattered most. She has been fighting to stay true to herself and what she knows to be right and wrong ever since.
When she runs into Alex the shock almost makes her run once again, it is her go to. When things get dangerous she always has an exit plan. She has a new name, new look, there is no way he will remember her, right? Wrong, he does and it drives poor Alex crazy until he gets it confirmed one way or the other. The new waitress at his favorite bar tunes him on like only one girl ever did, but this girl looks different and says her name is Sarah not Cory. He decides to ask her out and go from there.
I really loved this book because of the trust and leap of faith it took for both characters to move forward. They needed to forget the past and figure out what the future might hold, if Cory/Sarah can stay alive that is. There is suspense, passionate love, and fun moments you don’t want to miss. I can’t say more without ruining the story. This is in a series but can be read as a stand-alone. Just buy it and enjoy!
