“If you leave someone at least tell them why, because what's more painful than being abandoned; is knowing you're not worth an explanation.” ~Unknown~~Caydon~ My dad never wanted me. The little girl at the bus station abandoned me. I’m just a poor, tattoo artist from the wrong side of the tracks. But, Hannah…she wants me. She made me see the light. I don’t need to fight to make people see that I’m worth it. When I’m with her, everyone can see that I am someone. I’m worth something. If only Hannah would return my calls. I know she is busy at college. But, damn, I deserve a phone call. Hell, I’d even accept a text message. Nothing. I get nothing. Without her, I will be nothing. ~Reece~ My mother is an alcoholic. I can’t believe I’ve said that out loud. It’s gotten really bad. Every night is a nightmare. My mother will drink from the time she gets home from work until she passes out. She ended up getting fired from her job because she showed up drunk. Her body is failing so I decided to drop out of school to help her. It doesn’t matter anyway, it’s not like I could study in peace. I feel trapped…hopeless. I know I love her. But, there are days, I am not sure. The end is near. I know it is.
***I received an ARC for an honest review***
This is such a sweet story! The book begins when the kids are 10 years old. Caydon notices a little girl across the street, she is beautiful and shy. He watches the other girls tease her. He goes over and helps her up they lock eyes. There is a connection and all he wants to do is save her. They agree to meet up at the park but he never sees her again!
Reese had to deal with a lot in her life especially taking take of her alcoholic mother at such a young age. Finally after all those years she is finally coming home.
Caydon hasn't had a easy life either, he never stopped missing the beautiful 10 year old girl.
I fell in love with this story from the very beginning. Its a quick read but you will have many emotions, there will be lies, fighting, deceiving, love, fate and second chances. This was a great read and I highly recommend it.
I give 5 out of 5 stars
