Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 311 Pages
Amber's always planned to leave her overbearing mother and their stifling small town behind as soon as she graduates. That is until her car breaks down outside Bale and Son's mechanics and she meets Freddy Bale. A boy who'd rather live in the moment than make a five-year-plan. Ignoring her friends' warnings, Amber puts all dreams for her perfect future on hold, and dives into the romance heart first. On their last day of school, however, Freddy decides to call off their relationship, and Amber does the only thing she can think of: Run away and never look back. Just like she'd always planned. Ten years pass before Amber sets foot in town again, only returning to look after her ailing mother. While Freddy wants to make amends, Amber is confronted with her own wrong choices from ten years ago. Choices that could change the lives of everyone she's ever loved. When first love is given a second chance and the secrets of the past come hurtling into the present, will Amber and Freddy be able to lay their mistakes to rest and make this love the strongest one of all?
Review by Lissa
Amber French, has come back to her village. After ten years of being away. Unsure about her life. Then the guy stole her heart comes by surprisingly. You learn how they came together and what tore them apart.
Now, I honestly wasn't sure going in. At first, I wasn't into the story. But something happened. I started to love it. I fell in love with Amber and Freddy's story. Though they had been away from each for a long time, their love didn't end. The secret she had, that had to have been tough. Going through 10 years by herself, never truly being at home.
Amber made a lot of tough decisions. Ones, she regrets. Ones, she wishes she never made. But such is life and you can't look at the past. You have to see what's in your present and what your future could be.
Bloom, really writes a wonderful story about love and forgiveness. Love isn't easy and I don't think it's suppose to be. I love how she writes, a true love story.
