How much heartbreak can one heart take?

Melisa Dane has made it through the worst. Her heart was broken, but Florian Dane, better known as “Heat”—and the man of her dreams—returned to mend it. Now, with her family almost complete, Melisa is ready to sit back and enjoy life.

But fate isn't done with her yet. The perpetual smile on her face freezes when the second man to steal her heart shows up in her life once again. Scott Bergfeld, the husband she buried and grieved for years ago, is not dead, and he comes back bearing secrets.

Heartbroken and confused, Melisa tries to find answers to questions she never thought she'd ask, but what she learns throws her life into turmoil. Soon, cracks start to form in her marriage with Heat. As her heart is torn into two halves—between the man she loved first and the man she married first—she comes dangerously close to having her whole life destroyed again. How many people will end up getting hurt? This time, does she have the strength to make it through?

Sometimes I think people are generally stupid! Melisa is doing the same thing she blamed Heat for. Melisa also runs at the first chance and needs to learn how to work things out together. But keeping Scott’s still alive a secret from her now husband Hea,t is very stupid no matter the circumstances. I just had to vent that first.

There are a lot of secrets, lies, omissions, selfishness and grieving in this book. At times, it was unbearable. Melisa and Heat have lost a lot together but Heat wants to work on it together and Melisa just can’t do it. That made me not like her so much. Heat on the other hand? What’s not to like. He is willing to buy the world for her. Melisa just took a lot of time to get with the picture and I really thought that Heat would move on and let her go; because he saw that he was losing her.

Scott is a donkey’s butt! He is stupid too. I mean who does that and keeps all kinds of secrets from his then wife???? But he tries to right the wrongs of his life and while he was given forgiveness, things were too far gone to make any changes.

OK, so you get the picture that this book is full of choices and consequences and forgiveness, moving on, second chances and having a family. It is a rollercoaster of emotions, sometimes I wanted to stop reading it as it was heavy. But in the end, I agreed with the choices that were made!

3.5 stars






Dori Lavelle is a mother, wife, and sucker for happy ever afters and mint chocolate. Hand her a great romance novel and a mug of hot chocolate and she'd be one happy woman.
