Affected by her parents’ highly publicized divorce, Isabel grows up isolated and alone, with a resolve to never fall in love and repeat their mistakes.
When Jesse Cain enters her life, she falls hopelessly in love with him, and every sadness she’s ever felt is washed away by his intensity and passion. But people change as they grow up. Things can never stay the same forever.
Jesse and Isabel fight to stay together, determined to hold on to what they once had. Isabel wonders if a second love can ever be enough to make her forget her first.
The trip to the airport took about 45 minutes—enough time to transform my outfit and freshen up for him. Once we got to the airport, we didn't have to wait at all. He was standing outside in a gray suit with a white button down shirt, already unbuttoned due to the heat. Bernard waved at him and he stepped up to the right side of the door to get in.
"Hi," I said shyly.
"Hi, baby. Wow. You look amazing, as always."
The blazer had come off and the four-inch leopard print shoes were on. The skirt looked much shorter on me without the blazer. I slid toward him as he grabbed me and placed me on top of his lap.
"Happy Anniversary," he whispered sensually into my ear. His nose traced a line from my jaw to my neck and his fingers softly rubbed the inside of my thigh.
I giggled nervously. His touch felt so good, so safe.
"One month down, 959 more to go," he groaned, his hands now on my back, pulling me close.
"That's 80 years, A."
"I'm in love with a math genius."
I love to read, write about reading, shop, write about shopping, three day weekends, high heels and purses. I’m a wife, a mother, a corporate executive, a loyal friend and a passionate believer in true love. This is all you need to know about me. If you get my stories, you get my heart.
This is a powerful and emotional read about one woman’s struggle to decide which path her future will take.
‘I’ve learned that giving your heart away to someone is the bravest thing you can ever do. The one moment that it’s cherished, no matter how brief, can help it to survive a lifetime.’

‘So this is what it feels like to be in love. My pulse raced and my knees went weak, and in that very moment, I knew the course of my life and the integrity of my heart would be forever linked to this one sweet kiss.’
Alex is one of Isa’s best friends and makes no secret of his feelings for her. He loves Isa for who she is and wouldn’t change her for the world. Alex yearns for Isa to return his affection.
‘Never accept a counter offer. If they weren’t good to you the first time, they’ve lost their chance to gain your loyalty and trust. What makes you think it will be better the next time?’
How do you decide between two very different men? One who has forever stolen a piece of your heart and one who loves you the way you deserve to be loved.
An amazing book about the power one woman can hold over two very different men. The author has poured her heart and soul into every word. Very highly recommended!
