Life is precious.

The only hope is that in the broken woman found barely hanging onto life. Having made a promise to her brother, Griffin makes it his personal goal to keep her safe.
He is her protector.
*speechless* Seriously…wow…just wow.
This book took me for an unbelievably emotional ride. I haven’t had my heart broken, mended, broken and mended so many times that I had in this book, ever. I could not put this book down because I became so invested in Riley and Griffin’s lives. I had to see what was going to happen next, which is why I devoured this in a couple of hours. Michelle Horst knows exactly how to build a detailed story with complex characters that will hook a reader. She is able to create a book that makes you feel. That is why this book is amazing and breathtaking!
This story is very difficult to read, yes…readers be warned, but this book is so breathtaking and astounding because it makes you FEEL. A book that makes you THINK. A book that makes you appreciate your life, your family and your friends. This book gives perspective and something to think about days after reading it. This book will stick with you. It has with me.
