You can say I had it all. The fancy house, top of the line car, lots of friends and more money than anyone could ever imagine. On the outside, we were the perfect family. No one knew about my abusive father and my mother who drank herself into oblivion every night. My name is Karly and I have scars, deep scars that no one knows about, and when my parents died I was left alone and on my own, to fight through life with no help.

When it came to life and happiness, I had it all until my world was turned upside down. My name is Nicholas and my wife, the love of my life, left me and our new baby girl without as much as an explanation. I didn’t want to accept it, but after our divorce was final and four long years passed, I started to lose hope that she’d ever come back. Emma was growing so fast and I needed help. My sister recommended that I hire her friend, Karly, as Emma’s nanny. I took a chance on bringing another woman into my little girl’s life. Did I do the right thing?  As many days and nights are spent together, feelings can no longer be denied and a relationship is formed.

Life is about taking chances and learning how to fall, but when the past comes back, will they be strong enough to fight through and trust each other? Or will all they worked for fall apart?

“It’s a six pack with a V. You know the thing that girls go crazy over. Can you think clearly?” I walk slowly towards her again, making sure I’m not overstepping any boundaries when clearly I am. This whole staying away from her isn’t working.  His tongue glides along my bottom lip and I swear I think my knees are about to give out. I slowly open my mouth, inviting him in. Our tongues meet and wow he can kiss. The slow sexy dance with our tongues is turning me on full force. The ache between my thighs increases and my heart is beating so fast. He’s leaving me breathless.

"Don't underestimate me sweetheart. I'm sure I can make you nervous," he pauses bringing his lips closer to my ear. "I know I turn you on just by the sound of my voice." The ache between my thighs is back with a vengeance as he touches my hand and pulls me closer. "I'm a very protective man and I'm used to getting what I want," he whispers as his hot breath travels down my neck. "And I want you, Karly."

“I’m not perfect either. We’re gonna learn more about each other as the days turn into nights.” I hold his face in my hands, “I’m not perfect and neither are you, but we’ll be perfect for each other. I’ll wait until you’re ready Nicholas.” 

The depths of his soul are in his eyes, and each time we look at one another, a piece of his soul belongs to me. I’m not sure how we can still be friends. The electric charge between us is undeniable. His kisses make me weak. His eyes make me melt. That smile, wow, his smile, makes the world stop and everything seem clearer.

 “I’ll always be here to repeat our song. I’m not going anywhere.” I kiss her lips and bring her in my arms.  He brings his hand to my face, cradling it. I love how his touch makes me feel. “Because you matter to me.” 

“Life’s hard, baby. But I need you to listen to me when I tell you over and over again how much I love you and how much you mean to me.” Kissing her beautiful head and breathing her in, “Baby we both have baggage, but that shouldn’t get in the way of our happiness. When I look at you I see my forever. You’re it for me.” She sniffles holding me tighter, “and every day we’re together I’m gonna keep reminding you how amazing you are.”

"No baby it's the other way around. You took a chance on me even though I built so many wall around my heart.  You tore them down.  Sometimes we don't have a choice when it comes to love.  Love chooses for us.  Once love finds us our soul mate it's now up to us to keep the love alive so it doesn't die."

We meet Karly just as she is getting out of college and moving in with her best friend Alexis.  Karly is getting ready to start the next chapter in her life and hoping that she will be able to find the happiness that she longs for so desperately.  The only problem is that she has been let down and hurt so many times by the people who should stand by and protect her the most.  No matter what though Karly shines bright and stands tall as a survivor.  

After four long years of trying to make a family for is little girl Emma with his ex-wife Jamie, Nicholas has finally decided to move back to North Carolina where his family is.  Jamie has continued to place her focus on her modeling career while Nicholas has worked to be everything to their daughter.  When he arrives back home he has forgotten that his sister Alexis has a new roommate, but the one thing he didn't expect was for her to grab a hold of him and not let him go emotionally.

This is one of those books that will make you stop and think about how good your life is and how hard others have or have had it.  Not only did Karly have a rough life growing up, but she is dealt a few other hands that have been less than stellar as well.  The thing is that she refuses to let them win.  What she did not expect was to find herself drawn to her best friends brother.  

The way that S. Moose writes this book will keep your emotions on a roller coaster.  The emotions that she wrote into this story were fantastic.  I felt as if I was walking right beside Karly through the whole book living each moment with her, which it what makes this book so good.  I was so happy for her as the book progressed because it looked as if life was finally on her side, but then the unimaginable happens and you are left with yourself going NO, NO, NO!!!!  The twist  that the book will leave you begging for more, which is really my only complaint about this story.  I am one that is not for cliffhangers, and boy does this one leave you hanging on the edge, but I will say that I have marked my calendar for the release of book 2 of this series.  The raw emotion that is in this book for each and everyone of the characters is amazing and you find yourself really hoping and seeing a future for each couple.  This family is so down to earth, accepting, and overall the epitome of true southern hospitality.  I guess in a way it kind of made me think of my own parents and siblings and how much I love them and what it is like for me living so far away from them.  

Again I fell in love with this book... I could keep going on and on about it, but I don't want to throw to much more out there for the fear of spoiling it for you... but take my word for it... read it, you will be glad you did.
