I love love love this series!!! The characters are all broken and need each other to be fixed. This story is Mason and Hailey's story. They are more messed up than Kenzie and Hunter.

Hailey comes from a broken family. Her sister, Tara, blames her for her parent's divorce and is cruel to her. Her dad treats her like dirt and abuses her. Her mom is oblivious. So naturally, Hailey has some issues to overcome. Mason has always been the one to protect her. But sometimes to the extreme. He keeps a secret from her that isn't even related to them and it blows up in his face ruining their relationship. Of course this secret has something to do with the town whore and Hunter's evil recently identified step sister. I was really worried that maybe they wouldn't be able to resolve things. But I had faith that the author would somehow fix their mess! (insert giggles here)

Mason has issues too. He wants to protect. He forgets to take care of himself and Hailey first. He does some bad stuff here and I find myself going back and forth on how I feel about him.

They both make way too many mistakes and don't know how to communicate and get over it. I wanted to beat them both upside their heads to grow up and communicate and listen to each other and not take other peoples words before listening to each other.

I love the close knit family that are the Cahill's. I love that even though they make mistakes, the Mr and Mrs Cahill love them all unconditionally. I enjoy watching them all grow. That's part of why I love this series is that the family is the center of everything.

Now, I have to wait for Cooper's story. I really want to hear that one!!

Oh, And we finally get to see Hunter and MacKenzie married. It was so sweet. And I even adored little baby Ryder.

The only thing that always bothers me is all the F bombs. I am not a fan of it. Never have been.

As soon as my feet hit the dance floor the perfect song for Hailey and I comes on, Changed By You by Between The Trees. I heard when I was traveling to one of my away games. I wanted to have Hailey listen to it but that never happened. Maybe this is a sign for us after all.

Hailey’s back is turned towards me; I don’t see her arm candy anywhere so I know I am in the clear, at least for now. I walk up behind her, slide both my arms around her and rest my hands low on her stomach. Her body responds like it always has, and she melts into me; fitting together like puzzle

I whisper in her ear, “Listen to the words. Just listen.”

She nods, for once not fighting me. We start moving, slowly. Very slowly. As the words start talking about change, taking care, melting fears away, reaching inside and seeing the real person, being the one. As the song continues her body becomes stiff and she trembles.

I start turning her around, never giving her enough space to push away from me, afraid I’d lose our connection. “You’re the one for me, Hailey. I’m letting you go for now but know you will always be the one for me. You can hate me all you want.” I kiss her forehead. “You’re my mirror; you make me see things that no one else can, not even Coop. You challenge me, you tear me down, and you build me back up. Somewhere along the way you lost your mirror, me. When you’re ready to see it again you know where to find me.”
