So hopefully you have read the review of the first book. If not, go do that first :D
I canot express how happy I am with this book. If I could give it 10 stars I would. I Loved experiencing the characters growth in this book. And boy did they grow as people. Maggie and Clay left off with some things to work on. One of the big ones being Clay getting his life under control. You step in with Clay doing exactly that. He grows so much, and becomes such a different and better person through this book. The same goes for Maggie. While Clay is gone she goes through some things, and though she doesn't really get her life under control per say, she beings to become another person. They both go through some trials in this book. Clay has a lot on his shoulders and eventually he has some hard decisions to make. The same goes for Maggie. Is she going to fight for what she wants, or give up.
I enjoyed every part of this book. Though I wish some of the sad parts hadn't happened, I see that they were necessary and got these characters to the ending they most deserved. I wasn't heart set on Maggie and Clay like some others. I saw more of how they were toxic for each other. In this book Clay changes it up and forces their relationship to evolve. In the end I was very involved with what happened to them and just wanted for them to finally have what they deserved.. Forgiveness and a second chance.
This book was as good as the first, if not better. It tied the story up perfectly and I thought it was done well. Each chapter went back and forth with POV and I felt this added a completely other depth to the story. You really get to know them each as people on a whole other level and get so pulled in to the story its amazing. I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed this book. Pleas,e Go buy them, and give them a well earned chance.
How do you keep going when you feel like your life is over?Maggie never thought she’d see Clay again. So, she attempts to put her life back together after her heart has been shattered to pieces. Moving on and moving forward, just as Clay wanted her to.Clay never stopped thinking of Maggie. Even after ripping their lives apart and leaving her behind to get the help he so desperately needed. He is healing...slowly. But his heart still belongs to the girl who tried to save him.
When a sudden tragedy brings Maggie and Clay face to face again, nothing is the same. Yet some things never change. Can the darkness that threatened to consume them be transformed into something else and finally give them what they always wanted? And can two people who fought so hard to be together, finally find their happiness? Or will their demons and fear drive them apart for good?
The thing about love, is even when it destroys you, it has a way of mending what is broken. And in the shadows, you can still see the light.
