Synopsis

A secret smile.
A haunting kiss.
Life – Interrupted.
Keilen Rivers was the best Lily Campbell never had. He was the promise she didn’t let herself keep. After all, nothing in life seems meant to last, and love is no exception.
When Lily’s life takes an unexpected and tragic turn, she leaves behind both her island home and the boy she could have loved to protect the only family she has left.
But sometimes life takes without giving. Sometimes you cannot bend, only break. And when her career spirals out of her control, Lily can only watch as everything she worked for falls to ruin.
But some lies are hard to come back from. And some promises are made to be broken. Sometimes going home again is the only thing that can save you. But first you have to break. First you have to fall.
⭐⭐⭐⭐✮
Alright so, I can probably name off a couple dozen people that will absolutely love this book. It has all the feels. This story is very well written, and the characters are truly relatable. I absolutely loved Keilen and Zee, but lily didn't cut it for me. I understand that she has had a lot of loss in her life, and that she always had to work harder than everyone else, but I felt she was constantly throwing herself pity parties. It irritated me a little bit. This story was depressing and frustrating, and not for my tastes, personally. I can acknowledge that it's a fantastic story, and that the author did well spinning this tale. My opinion reflects my personal preferences only, and not the author's ability, or this story. In fact the author did a beautiful job telling this story. I happen to be an anti-romantic that likes to read romantic stories, I know it doesn't make sense. There is a HEA, and the angst is massive. I would definitely recommend this book to others. It's a drama and it settles around fate, hope, and heartbreak. I can see this book becoming a best seller. Overall, I was satisfied with the ending, and content with how this story was told. I would also like to point out that this cover is absolutely beautiful!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I absolutely loved this book. The story was full of love, angst, and heartache. The characters were relatable, and I loved Keilen. I felt so sad for Lily and also was very angry with her. I hated how things kept getting in the way of her and Keilen. The story was written well, and I loved the sappy, fate filled romance. This story is definitely one of my favorites. 


“See, there you go calling me pet names and I still don’t have one for you. Unless you change your mind about buggah…
“No,” he said, sliding his fingers into her damp hair. “I rather you say to me, na'u `oe so I can say it back.”
“What does that mean?”
He hesitated, only for a moment, the smile lighting up his face lowered, as though unsure if he should tell Lily the truth. She held her breath when he moved his thumb across her lower lip and then Keilen nodded, decision apparently made. “It means ‘you’re mine.’”
“That…” Her breath shuddered then, and she shook against him. “That’s what you want me to say?”
“That’s what I want you to mean.”
The kiss, when it came, reminded Lily of the first one he’d given her, all those years ago on Tommy’s dance floor. There was no Kiki there to force her to say stupid, inappropriate things. There was no Kona smiling like he knew what Keilen wanted to do to Lily once they left the bar. There was only the press of Keilen’s naked chest against her and the warm, smooth glide of his fingers on her back, pulling her close, sinking into the sandy ocean as he lowered his head and moved his mouth to hers.
She had meant it, that ‘your mine’ promise a thousand times in her dreams. She’d spoken it proudly to him anytime he moved through the hallways and half glanced at, half ignored her. She’d wanted to say it a million times before that night on the beach, but had never had him close enough; had never believed he’d want to hear anything similar from her.
But there she stood, under the rich moonlight, letting Keilen Rivers steal her breath, ravage her mouth like a predator she warmly welcomed. She’d say it a thousand times just to keep him close. She’d say it a million more because it was true.
“Keilen?” she said, holding his head still when he didn’t seem able to break away from her kiss. He grunted low, the only response he gave her. “I mean it.”
He didn’t answer. Instead, Keilen stared down at her a little breathless, stretching his neck so that Lily saw the steady quickening of his pulse as he watched her. A look, it seemed and a small confession, could shift this man’s world and leave him dumbfounded. It was a power Lily would have never believed she could wield. But there she was, holding him, that perfect fantasy, between her trembling fingers, living in a daydream on that dark autumn night, meaning the things she’d spoken with a bravery she never really had.
And he believed her. Maybe she believed it too.
