I lost her.
No, I didn't lose her. I threw her away.
She was my best friend.

I was never supposed to fall in love with her.
I was careless.
She was heartbroken.

I thought I was doing fine. But here she is, years later, forced to work with me, reminding me why I fell in love with her in the first place.

And this time I'm going to do everything in my power to never let her go.

My Review

To say that I loved this book might be a complete understatement of feelings…. This book consumed me heart, mind, body and soul… As you may know I’m a total sucker for a second chance romance… All throughout reading Kaleidoscope Hearts, Claire gave us little glimpses into the hatred that Mia had for Jensen, but she never gave us the reason why… Thus creating the intrigue surrounding their past and I for one couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book!

Mia is a sharp girl, shes fun loving and witty, but put her in a room with Jensen and she turns down right cold and frothy.  So one would think  they had a bad past and something happened to make her be that way, cause it’s not your typical Mia behavior.  Once you get the full story out of Mia, you can completely understand WHY she is the way she is with him. She’s moving to NYC right into the heart of Jensen’s territory, and her plan is to get in and get out without having to deal with him, but when fate puts them in each others path, her plans to avoid him go up in flames!

Jensen is a man who’s made many mistakes, his feeling of inadequacies were bread into him at a very young age.  When your young you make mistakes, that’s what life is all about, but some mistakes are TOO BIG to overcome, and the one that Jensen made changed his life forever.  Not that he’d have it any other way because his little girl is the light of his life!  This man could not be any more perfect.  He’s only missing one thing, and that’s the girl that got away years ago.  But now she’s in his city, within his reach and all he has to do is convince her that what they have is a never ending love… After all True Love Stories Never End…

You will weep, you will laugh, you will weep some more, and you will want to throw something.  Mia and Jensen don’t make this an easy road to follow but it’s one that is worth every heartbreaking tear, to through the walls of this stubborn woman and the man she’s destined to be with.  This book did drain my emotions on more than one occasion but its one of my absolute favorite books and probably in my Top 5 of 2015!  If you haven’t picked it up yet I implore you to get it NOW!  You won’t be sorry!  XOXOXO
