Five years after their messy breakup, Houston and Rory are forced to work together opening up a new wine bar. Despite their tragic past, they find themselves once again drawn to each other, unable to deny their potent attraction.
But the secret of the letter hangs like a guillotine over their heads. And soon, Houston finds himself in the same position he was in five years ago, choosing between the truth and the only woman he’s ever loved.
What's New in Version 2.1
Mysterious but warning needed
This book should have come with a cheating warning but I guess that would spoil the story. Honestly I had a really hard time liking or even respecting Houston at all. I also could not grasp this all consuming love he and Rory supposedly had. They only dated for 6 months. He was not honest at all and then left her right after she got an abortion. Then 5 years later he runs into her, is married but isn't really into his wife because he's hopelessly still in live with Rory (eye roll). Now he wants her back.
I liked Rory, she went through some heavy stuff and is still a decent, witty person even if she's slightly closed off. She's still in love with Houston but I can not see how. He treated her terribly while they we're dating then just left her without any real excuse. 5 years later he just shows up and expects her to just let it go even though he's married! I was impressed for a while at she spurned all his advance until she doesn't. Things happen and Ben your he says he's leaving his wife, he leaves Rory to deal with he aftermath all alone.
Not many times to do hope that an HEA is not given to the main characters, but here I really hope that Rory pulls her head out and leaves Houston in the past where he belongs.
Here's hoping for a Rory and Liam HEA!
Even though a lot about the characters annoyed me, the mystery kept me on he edge of my seat and it was something I totally didn't see coming. The ending was very vague and I had hopes that it was leading away from Houston but the very last parts lead me to believe I may not get so lucky.
I fell into an emotional storm from reading this tender and beautifully tragic love story.
Rory and Houston's story told in both POV's.
There are two parts to the story. This story is part of a series.
This is a story that most can relate to. This is Cassia at her best. Cassia writes beautiful tragic love stories that have your heart aching. Cassia writes a great story about complicated relationships and difficult decisions. Some references of the past are crafted into the story. The past helps clarify decisions being made in the present.
I've come full circle in this story. I've reached a point where Rory and Houston once began. Now it's time for the truths to be revealed. The reason for the break-up is finally revealed. This first installment was spend getting the reader acquainted with the history between these two characters.
This story is a romance but it is also a story about depression and grief. It's also a story about accepting choices and consequences. It's also a story about people who want to be saved and who need to be saved.
Cassia I missed these types of stories from you. I'm glad your back. This is your wheelhouse writing with tenderness and compassion. I look forward to the next installment.
