There are ugly truths
and pretty lies.
When I lost them,
I chose neither.
I wrapped myself in silence.
My husband, my best friend, became a stranger who gave up.
moved in next door, and everything changed.
You think you know this story,
but you don’t.
Be careful what you ask for because the answer may not come the way you think.

I'm obsessed with blowing kisses. I guess that makes me a romantic. I love books and cute boys and reading about cute boys in books. I'm infatuated with the glamour girls of the past: Audrey, Dorothy, Marilyn, Elizabeth.
I'm a self-confessed girly girl, book nerd, food enthusiast, and comic book fan. Odd combination huh, you have no idea...

"What did I do to deserve you" she asks through tears.
I dived straight into this,
One I loved the cover,
Two, I loved the blurb,
Three, It's Portia Moore.
I've read previous books by this author and loved them, the heartwarming, emotional stories, so understandably I dove in.
This isn't my usual kind of read, it probably won't be your usual kind of read. This book will get so many different reactions.
I've been on a rollercoaster ride with these characters and I've never felt this before but the message in this book feels tangable like you can feel it, it reaches out and pricks your subconscious if you let it.
Portia Moore has delivered a powerful message and I don't know how to describe it only that she cleverly disguised it within a romance book.
A hard book to review, I respect Portia Moore for expressing her faith through the work of fiction combining the two.
For the romance part of the story, I felt the heartache, the marriage problems Bryce and Chassidy were facing which are so very real for so many today, struggling with loss,not communicating with others when you hurt, struggling alone and facing temptation in the moments of weeknes.
This is one you have to read and come to your own personal conclusion and like I've said, I feel it will have so many different reactions depending on how the reader receives it. Just go in open minded.
