He left me shattered and mentally scarred. Our divorce should have healed those emotional wounds. It didn't.

Nine months have passed, and I am still trying to piece together my life that was torn to shreds. I am a shell of the person I once was.

Shrouds me in a cloak of darkness, isolates me from family and friends, and barely leaves me treading water. The only thing keeping me afloat is my rambunctious three-year old son, River.

Brings Liam Bowers into my life. He offers me everything my ex did not - love, adoration, romance and peace.

Slithers it's way back into my life, threatening to kidnap the only glimpse of happiness I have found.

My past and future are colliding, and I am afraid the only fatality will

This was a great debut novel. I was intrigued by the synopsis and knew I was in for a treat and I wasn’t disappointed. This is a story of hope, growth strength and determination. And as a reader I felt honored to join the characters on this emotional ride.

Riley has just broken up from her ex Aaron but she is drowning in depression. She is lost and is trying hard to find her way whilst bringing up her son who suffers with a speech impediment. Aaron was a bit of a prat, he didn’t treat Riley well and she knows deep down she did the right thing by leaving him.

River has had many speech therapists try and help him but none of them have worked out so far that is until Liam is sent to help them. Riley and Liam hit it off straight away and there are definite sparks between them and what makes him even more special is the way he is with River.

Riley and Liam could build on their strong foundation and really become something great but Aaron has other ideas. He doesn’t want Riley happy and will do anything in his power to sabotage all the good in her life but the question is will Riley be strong enough to fight hi, to stick up for what she wants and can Liam stick around and be the man Riley and River need?????

RD Berg lives in the great state of Texas with her three boys who drive her to the brink of insanity most days. She loves to read, write and watch her two favorite shows, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. When she isn’t enthralled with a novel or a gory show, you can find her in the stands loudly cheering on her boys at their basketball and football games. She has three strong beliefs in life; Vanilla cake and Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream should be a major food group, Halloween should be celebrated every month, and Harry Potter’s birthday should be a national holiday.
