Maggie and Sam’s love was forever, until it wasn’t.

Is it ever too late to go back home?

Maggie Whitaker had always dreamed about the same boy even though she’d never met him.

A loner, with an overly critical mother and a head full of self-doubt, she has spent most of her life isolated. That is, until she meets Trip. He becomes her only friend until he cruelly betrays her, making her feel even more alone.

Sam has endured far more than anyone has ever realized. When he meets Maggie, he feels as though he knows her immediately. They fall for each other hard and fast and Maggie feels as though she’s been waiting for him her entire life.

Their life together is beautiful as they make plans for a future together, until Sam is in a horrible accident and suddenly everything changes.

When Maggie finds herself alone with no explanation, she does her best to move on with her life. She realizes that erasing Sam from her heart is close to impossible, until Dylan.

As she’s finally about to have her chance at love, the unexpected happens and Maggie must decide if love is ever just enough, or if she needs more to be complete.

Caution: This story contains themes of sexual assault, addiction, and mild sexual situations.

***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s Review***
I have read all of author Jennifer Sivec’s books and each one gets better and better! I would be hard pressed to try to choose a favorite out of all of them. It is hard to believe that she can continue to write such amazing books that leave the reader crying, yelling, shocked and yet still satisfied in the end. The reader becomes a part of the books and they never want to leave the world that the author has created for them.

If you don’t fall in love with the Maggie and Sam then this is not the genre that you should be reading! This book has all of the feels that you need and all of the feels that you didn’t know that you needed. This story will take the reader on a roller coaster of a ride that includes all of the loops, curves, twists and turns that you expect and some that you would never expect! There is no way to predict where the author is going with this one – but be prepared to go on a ride you will not forget!! Just when you think you have it figured out – BAM – the author throws one more 90mile per hour twist your way.

If you haven’t read anything by this author, you MUST! She is amazing and each book she writes shows the reader why they love her and her writing style. This book grabs you from the very start and never lets you go! Be ready to spend the day, night and maybe the next day with this read because there is no good place to stop once you start!
