My Review:

I Loved this book even more than the first! Seems to be a trend with me lately but its true. I LOVED getting to share Shayla's story and how it developed. I found this story to be fun and I was enthralled form the start. With the first book I wasn't sure where it was going, but with this story I felt I knew the characters well enough form the first to makes well educated guesses on their decisions. It was really great to read and I Loved getting more from this world. I love series that work their way through the stories of different family members and Beverly takes it to another level with this one. We are given a glance at the other side of a family during the time of the first book. It was a fun way to read it and It had a lot of great elements that kept me turning the pages for more. Shayla is faced with some hard decisions. Her boyfriend is everything right on paper. He has the job, the family, the life, but she isn't happy. Not really. With a last minute not desired proposal,and some crazy realizations Escaping to Greece is exactly what she needs. Its a breath of fresh air for her, and the view certainly doesn't hurt, especially if it looks like John. John knows from the moment he meets her that he wants Shayla, and he isn't shy about telling her so, and her certainly sin't shy about showing it. I really didn't think I could feel more emotion in a scene than I did in book one, but the magic is worked again with these two. Even with the story being a light romance, it still has is deep spots, and Shayla isn't spared from the wrongdoings of other characters either. Someone is out to get her and is could turn her whole life upside down. She is faced with some tough decisions, but I really enjoyed watching her break the barriers that had been holding her down. Another story full of finding love and forgiveness and really doing what is best for one's self. Shayla's has not had the easiest life and John is determined to better her future. Will she let him? You better read and see. I promise you wont be let down in any aspect with this book. Giveaway!
