New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak returns to Silver Springs, where no past mistake is so big the heart can't find a way to fix it.
Jada Brooks couldn't have known how her life would change when she fell for bad boy Maddox Richardson back in high school. She couldn't have known his troubled brother would leave hers forever crippled. Or that she'd be forced to shun Maddox completely--only to discover she was carrying his child.
Although Maddox was devastated by the events that transpired that fateful night, losing Jada was the worst of it. He's back in Silver Springs, ready to make amends and provide the kind of youth outreach that once saved him. If he'd known Jada was in town, too, he would never have come.
Jada has returned to Silver Springs to be with family after her father's death. But when she sees Maddox, every tough decision she's made concerning their now twelve-year-old daughter begins to haunt her. Falling for him again is so tempting, but not only does she stand to alienate her family--if he finds out about Maya, she could lose what matters most.
This book was another amazing, sweet read! After all, a story about a couple who were split up because of one horrible night-and the fact that she had their daughter and didn't tell him, yeah, that's quite a story!
There was a bit of this story where she anonymously contacted him, and yeah, that was pretty hilarious to read, because they both let their guards down, as well as some flirtations. That he wants to know who she is, and she knows that can't work, well, it was an interesting dynamic!
I kinda really didn't like her parents. Well, her father died, but given that he seemed to be of the same opinion as his wife, well, I don't think I'd like him either. I mean, they favored their son, and while Jada made a mistake going to the party, it's not like she pulled the trigger. Her mom acted horribly.
There were a few fears in this book. That Maddox would take Maya away from Jada. That Maya would hate her for not telling her about her dad. And I just had to read more, to see how they found their happy ending!
Really enjoyed reading this book, and can't wait to read his brother's story in the next book!
