Corabelle doesn’t feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned.
Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction.
When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can’t resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she’ll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent.
New Adult Contemporary Romance
I loved, loved , loved that we got both Corabelle and Gavin's POV. I needed to get inside Gavin's head and see where he was and what he was thinking. Even though they were just teenagers in love, you could tell it was deep and meaningful. Losing Finn took it's toll on both of them and it just wrenched my heart right along with them.
My favorite part in this whole book was Gavin seeing Corabelle's body and the stretch marks for the first time after she had given birth.....
“They’re beautiful.” He began kissing each pale line, hip to stomach and back down again. “It’s proof that Finn was once here.”
OMG...blubbering mess! LOVE Gavin!
This book is great! I cannot wait to read more of their story. Please, Deanna, give us more! I soooo need it!
