That moment your life changes.
That moment that changes your life.
That moment you love someone more than you love yourself.
That was the moment we gave our son up for adoption and the moment I was left bare. A wide-open space that would forever be empty.
There are moments that define you as a person, moments that prove just how strong you are, moments you push yourself to keep going forward when all you really want to do is give up. It was in one of those moments when I reached out and found him waiting for me.

When Shelby Calder left home fifteen years ago, she never planned on returning to the Alaskan town she left behind. But after the death of her grandfather and a bitter divorce, she hopes going home will be a fresh start for her and her ten-year-old son.

Zach Watters has made a lot of mistakes in his life. But when he sees Shelby Calder, looking more beautiful than ever, standing outside her childhood home, he promises himself that letting her go won't be a mistake he ever makes again.

Some things never change and love is one of them.

REVIEW

This was a tough read. It is extremely emotional, heart wrenching and also frustrating and because of that, rings true to life. I had a day after it released to read some of the reviews to this book and see if other people landed where I did when it came to Zach. I did not like him and apparently I was not alone. I felt for Shelby, loved her and felt her emotional pain like it was my own in this book. But Zach? Wanted him castrated. In the end, I give this book 5 stars for the emotional journey it takes you on, even with wanting the "hero" of the story on a dart board. Along with Shelby's friend, who is a giant whore. All in all, this is definitely one you have to go into knowing you are not going to like everything or everyone in it and still read it and absorb what it gives you- it gave me the feels and it stuck with me- the good, the bad and the horrible. And any book that garners that much emotion in me, deserves 5 stars, whether I like how the story went or not- because it was not my story to tell, just mine to read. And also, I am one to totally get behind a second chance romance and people fighting to work out their problems and end up together through it all, so that part outweighed a lot of the negative feelings that I had for Zach in the beginning and after he ended up with Shelby's friend. Although I struggled with this book and had to process how it made me feel in the end prior to writing this review, I still end on it being 5 stars for the feels. This is definitely a book people will be talking about for a long time. ~ Kellie for Eye Candy Bookstore

Excerpt
“Then why did you marry her?” I ask, wondering if I’m really ready to go there with him, but it’s too late to change my mind. The question is out, and as much as I don’t want to know the answer, I need to know the answer.
“I wanted my kids to have what I didn’t. I believed that, with time, we could find a way to be happy.”
“Maybe we shouldn’t talk about this,” I say, changing my mind as nausea and jealousy turn my stomach.
“You loved your ex, baby. I know you did. I didn’t have that. I wanted it but never had it with her or anyone else since you.”
“Please stop.” Feeling tears burn the back of my eyes for him, I close them tight. Max and I were happy and in love in the beginning, and I hate knowing Zach never had that… the kids didn’t see or feel that.
“I wish my past didn’t hurt you so much. I’m sorry for hurting you the way I have. If I could take your pain away, I would.” He gathers me against him and tucks my head under his chin.
“As sad as it makes me, I wish you would have had that with her or someone else,” I say, and his arms tighten so much that my lungs compress.
“I don’t,” he growls.
“What?” I wheeze, and he loosens his grip just enough for me to take a breath.
“I don’t want to think about what would have happened if I had been with her or someone else when you came back. I don’t want to face that demon inside of me that knows what I would have done.”
“Zach—”
“I’ve been in love with you for almost eighteen years. I carried your missing pieces around inside me for that long, Shelby. I know it would have made me an asshole, but there is only one you. You’re the only place I’ve ever called home.” His voice is thick with emotion, and that wound inside of me fills up a little bit more. I hate his words, but a part of me is relieved he feels that way, that he feels so deeply for me.
“There’s been a wide open space inside me since we placed Samuel and I left you behind. But, from the moment I came back, it’s slowly been filling up.”
He goes quiet at my words. Several moments pass before he speaks again. “One day, that space will be full. I swear, with everything I have in me, I will make sure it’s overflowing and that you never feel empty again.”
