A new town. A new identity. Pregnant and alone.
And far away from a past that can never find me.
Moody. Sullen. Asshole.
And my new neighbor.
I have no interest in befriending River. And he definitely doesn’t want to be befriended by me.
Then, he helps me rescue an abandoned dog. And, that day, I see something in his eyes that reflects back in my own. Sadness. Pain. Loneliness.
I know all of those things well.
An unwanted and unexpected friendship that somehow works. Then, without warning, it turns into something more.
River and I both have our secrets, and that’s okay. Because I understand him. And he understands me.
For the first time in my life, I have something I never thought I would have—happiness.
But happiness isn’t forever. Not for people like me.
Especially not when my past is waiting just around the corner, ready to come and take it all away.
My Thoughts 💭
This was a nice and enjoyable book. Carrie is pregnant and on the run from her abusive husband. Her new neighbor is River and he’s been through his own abusive situation and carries guilt. River is a jerk but he’s nice to Carrie….sometimes lol. They were so adorable and I loved their chemistry! They were totally different but they fit so well together
