I always think to myself, I wondered how Alannah is going to make this one different from the last But each time she does and im in awe of her for that.Now lets get to the book..Hadley has the hardest thing to do in this book, she has to say goodbye Goodbye to a loved one, her brother best friend How do you cope after losing the person that means the world to you The person that pushes you to do different things, be braver, bespontaneous They make you want to be a better person Hadley had plans for her life mapped out and she was well onto her way to fulfilling her dreams, until one night sees them falling into abyss.She never expected to lose someone she loved, especially so young.I ve been where Hadley is and the worst feeling in the world, is knowing there s not a thing you can an do to change it You would give anything to wake up and for someone to tell you it was all a bad dream Unfortunately that s not the case and she has to face that her nightmares are real.Hadley has to leave her dreams behind her, and set of on a new life pathnot set by herself, but the choice of a loved one, someone who used to be a rock for her family now was a shadow of his former self and this was her fathers way of regaining control I guess.Hadley sets off for her 6 month stay at a Ranch in the deep Alberta Rocky Mountains.All she has with her is a bad attitude her nightmares and measly possessions I guess she feels betrayed by her loved ones, I mean if they really loved her they wouldn t send her away, to deal with this all alone I can understand her mom and dad though, no one can brase you for the loss of a child All they want now is to keep their only living Daughter alive and well, but in wrapping Hadley in cotton wool and shipping her off to somewhere they think there are no distractions or harm they are inevitably stopping hadley from living the life she desires.Once on the Ranch her whole outlook on life changes she meets Collin and exchanges smartmouthed comments and flirty banter Little does she know he will change her whole life.Collin is the jack the lad on the Ranch, screwing pretty much anything and no will to settle down, despite his mom s best efforts.You see Collin flirt with Hadley and her shoot him down, after her over hearing a conversation about her, she would never give him the satisfaction of being right in what he was saying.In true Donnelly form, you see Collin set out as one thing and do a full 180.The journey this book will take you on will have you gripping your heart.You will sit there hooked as the story developes.I honestly don t want to say any on the story for fear of spoiling it for people.I read half the book in a matter of hours and messaged alannah, to tell her I was going to read a fewchapters then head to bed.Well I couldn t do that, there was NO stopping for me I had to know there and then how their story ends.I absolutely can t wait to read the next book in this series, to see what Donnelly fate has in store for Luke.If you love heartbreakingly beautiful stories, this is definitely the book for you A book of Loss, confusion, heartbreak, Friendships, family, love, jealousy and self growth Wow,
