Wow what a ride this book took me on. Sarah the author really knows how to pull on the old heartstrings. She showed us a young girls ability to overcome her hurt and struggle and how she learns to survive.
Lily Grace knows she could always count on Dean till she started falling for him and he breaks her heart. A storm hits killing her mother and older brother leaving her with her father.
Dean ran off after the funeral and her father started physically abusing her. She realised the only person she could rely on is herself.
After 4 years Dean Haven returns, wanting to build bridges and win back Lily's heart, but what Dean failed to release is that might be harder than he thinks.
Lily and Dean both survived the storm and learned to cope with their demons. In time they both grasp that they have to trust one another to move on from their past and gain control of their love and future.
I enjoyed the book and found the characters were well written, you could really feel the pain by the way Sarah writes. Hard, sensitive topics are the main focus in this book, but with massage of survival and courage...
I love Quotes...

“keep in mind that even those who love you can unknowningly inflict pain when they themselves are hurting”
"That young lady has been in hell these last four years and you, Mr. Dean Haven, played a starring role."
"I wanted to run back to him so he could make me worthy of his love, make me feel whole again. But I'm not, I'm not worthy of anyone's love."
Most were asleep in their beds the night Lily Grace’s entire world was ripped apart, leaving only darkness and torment in its place. The only remaining person she depended on abandoned her without a second thought…or so that’s what Lily has believed for the past four years.
Dean Haven has returned for one reason—to win Lily’s love again. He’s already broken her heart because of the demons that haunt him. Can his desire for Lily keep him from succumbing to those demons again?
Dean has no idea what awaits him when he tries to fight his way back into Lily’s life. Everything he remembers has changed, including Lily.
Is love enough when you’re forced to weather the storms life has blown your way?
