I thought this was going to be the story of two women who each had reasons to back off commitment and how they got past it. It was so much more than that. Kayla and Jackie had difficult pasts neither had dealt with. How they dealt with these difficulties made this novel a very interesting read. They needed each other to become complete and happy but would they ever be able to see that. There was a fair amount of emotional intensity and it was so well written. Donna K Ford didn’t back away from the ugly truths of life but she also wrote some beautiful tender moments and love scenes full of joy. A wonderful read I can highly recommend.
I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
