The man.

Both come without warning.

My heart opens to Cooper Haywood the moment we meet. How can it resist? He’s charming, devastatingly handsome, and sweeps me off my feet before I realize the impact he’s making. And then it’s too late.

We fall too fast to worry about the consequences.
We love so hard that we ache when we’re apart.

Even though I have a past that still haunts me and he has a future that could put us at risk, none of that matters when we’re together.

Until it does.
And then everything changes.

Although the best thing he ever gave me now calls me Mommy, I can’t help but wonder if Cooper Haywood and that fateful storm were one and the same.

My Review 

This is a new author to me and one I’d not heard of before. 

This story is told in three parts no cliffhanger, and as Cooper likes to quote its his life before and after meeting Story. 

Cooper Haywood has it all, but he’s constantly fighting with his family, he’s generous, thoughtful and genuine (not at all like his family) I liked we got to see his side of the story.

Story Salenger is a great character, not coming from a great background it’s made her see things in a different light, but I wouldn’t call her bitter, she’s resilient, she’s resourceful and she was great to read about. 

There is drama, heartache and sadness. But there is also joy, love (of a different kind) and we get to see how each character has grown through the book. 

First part of the book: I loved, it told of their story, how close and how wrapped up in one another they were (almost instalove feel) 

Second part of the book: I found a little slower and a bit repetitive. 

The third and final part of this book: Not nearly as long as I would of liked. But when they finally catch up with one another, I couldn’t put it down. 

Secrets and hidden pasts weren’t really necessary in my opinion (felt they were for drama purposes) the storyline was strong enough to carry it without them. 

So will I recommend this book? Definitely. It’s really well written, thought out and carried out with lots of care and consideration. 

I’m going to add this author to my ever growing list of new and to watch author’s.
