The dedication in this book stayed with me throughout my read and it's still in my thoughts now,

“For anyone who has ever been hurt
By those who should love you the most,
your happy ever after is waiting.
You just have to trust. I promise”

I knew this was going to be a hard-hitting and emotional read just from that alone but what I found was a story of struggles, loss, finding ones self, acceptance, friendship, and love.

"Its amazing how one simple act of kindness can help change someone’s life."

Asher and Emma’s story started when they were both at school, Asher was a bit of a loner and he was struggling with things no one should ever have to. Emma was a ray of sunshine in his dark life that showed him kindness.

Emma came from money, but she was far from using this to her advantage. She helped Asher all them years ago as she seen a boy struggling. But she has never forgotten about him and thought of him often.

Fast forward a few years and their paths cross again. Emma wants to help and also finds herself having feelings for Asher, but Asher is a very complicated man.

I would love to carry on telling you Asher and Emma’s story but I don’t want to spoil this Heart-warming beautiful read so if you want to find out more join them on their journey by one clicking this book.

M. A. Stacie is never without a book or her eReader. A voracious reader, with a love of sexy, yet angst ridden novels, she loves getting lost in new worlds. Her need to write did not grip her until after her second son was born, when her previous rambles became fully fledged stories.

She describes herself as one huge contradiction, and though not the most conventional of hobbies, she counts getting new tattoos as one of hers. Along with running, knitting, and listening to loud music. However, she is yet to work out how to do them all at the same time.
