I absolutely FLOVED this story! Gabby and Benton will leave an impression on your soul. Gabby has a traumatic past. She now lives her life with boundaries to keep her from suffering again. She is closed off and vows to never enter another relationship. Benton is still grieving the loss of his wife, however, life goes on for him and his daughter. He knows that Gabby is the key to his happiness. He just has to convince her that he is the key to hers. I love these characters. They are so deep and intense. The storyline was amazing and flowed effortlessly. The detail and emotion that was poured into this story was incredible. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

So this is my 1st Mallory Dauphin solo book. I have read other books she has co-written with another author and they were great but I wasn't sure what to expect from a book she wrote solo. Well, it turns out I was blown away!
I adored both of the main characters Benton and Gabby. They each have a boat load of baggage and neither of them believe they deserve to be happy (each for different reasons) until a certain point when they both decide they are going for broke and they are all in.
You may need tissues for this one, this book is pure heartache and a rebuilding and rising from the ashes story. What Gabby and Benton have been through before meeting each other you would not wish on anyone.
There isn't alot of humour in this story but there is lots of steamy sexy scenes, there are moments of torturous heartbreak, there are times when you want to jump into the pages and wrap the characters up in cotton wool and lastly there is hope. Hope that they will find happiness, hope that they find inner peace and hope they get their happy ending.
This story is an emotional rollercoaster ride but it is one you don't want to miss. It is definitely worth the read and definitely worth recommending to other readers.
Mallory Dauphin is an exceptionally talented author and her ability to draw you in and hold your attention while ripping out your heart and putting it back together shines through in this story leaving no doubt she has the gift of being a fabulous story teller.
