Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone or Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: August 15, 2017 Pages: 350 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Publisher (Inkslinger PR) Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Devney Perry is one of the new to me authors that has become one of my top favorites.

Two years later after considering everything, she finally decided to move permanently in her hometown for his mom and the fact that she has been unhappy living in a big […]
