Nick Foti left Riverdale New York, seven years ago, leaving his dreams and the only family he ever knew behind. Most of all he left the one girl that managed to completely unravel him. Samantha Lanza was his best friends little sister. She wasn’t meant to be his, she was his to protect like a sister.
When he finally decided he couldn’t fight his attraction to her, events unfold that force him to leave her and the only life he has ever wanted behind. Forced to work for his father in Seattle, Nick is miserable. He spends most his time in the boardroom playing the corporate mogul. The rest of the time he loses himself in a bottle and random woman that will never compare to the one he left behind.
One day Nick hits rock bottom and decides he’s had enough, he hangs up his suit and tie and sets out to reclaim the life he was meant to have. He heads back to Riverdale just when the family he has always loved as his own needs him the most. Everyone welcomes Nick with open arms, except Sam. She wants nothing to do with him. Can he convince her he’s a changed man who wants nothing more than to have her in his arms forever? Or has is the betrayal she feels too great to forgive.
This is the story of Jake’s sister Samantha and her romance with Nick. These two are fire together. They can barely stand to hear about each other let alone be in the same room. They both have been holding silent on their love for each other and neither of them are ready to step over the line to open their heart.
This is the story that ripped my heart apart. I read this with a lump in my throat the whole time. Janine has written an achingly beautiful tale of love. There is so much love in these pages – lost love, unconditional love, burgeoning love, resisting love and giving in to love. I haven’t had such a physical response to a story like this in a long time.
It’s painful to see the spiral of depression with Cara. Everyone is dealing with tragedies listed in this book the best way they can and it’s like a car crash. We can see what’s going to happen but there’s nothing we can do about it.
Highly recommend this series.
I was given a copy of this book for my honest opinion.
