First off, amazing job by the author. The emotions for each character were everywhere. I loved and hated both Carly Jo and Colton. Carlo Jo is this tough, hard headed girl left with no one to turn to in a life changing event. She leaves broken hearted to start over and endures even more tragedy and has no one to comfort her as she deals with so much. Colton is the guy that breaks her heart and leaves her broken hearted and alone with no explanation. He is also going enduring his own suffering. Seven years later, they meet again with so many secrets between them. Colton has grown up and will do anything to have the love of his life back. I feel he's a little too willing and doesn't give enough space between them. Carly Jo is confused, hurt, and untrusting to anyone especially Colton. As they fight to get the love they once had back, problems are arising and causing trouble between the two. It's an awesome story and left me wanting the next book now.
Silla Webb is a Kentucky native, raised in the heart of the coal fields. A coal truck driver's daughter, and a railroader's wife, the coal fields own a special place in her heart.
She is a work at home, Super Momma to three rowdy boys, who keep her on her feet from daylight to sunset. As a pass time from her everyday life, Silla started a blog-Momma's Secret Book Obsession, for reviewing romance novels. From there, she realized that not only did she have a natural love for reading and reviewing, but she found that lost love of writing that she once had as a young girl.
When she isn't conquering the world as a wife, momma and Super Woman, Silla loves to lay on the front porch swing and read while sipping sweet tea, just passin' the day away.
