I have read all of Leigh Ann Lunsford's books and by far this is her best work ever. I loved the Parker Siblings series immensely but this book has me feeling emotion in every scene in the book. I felt the sadness, the hurt and most of all, the love! My emotions were on a roller coaster ride in this novel. Leigh Ann has nailed this story and left me emotionally drained. (The best way to feel). She has such passion in the story that just keeps you wanting more and when she's done and she gives you the most perfect H.E.A. ever.
I gave this 5+ stars for the remarkable writing and the emotion you feel when reading it. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who wants a true love story with that one forever love that just never dies the love that everyone dreams of having.
