Let me start off by saying that I read this book in one day. It grabbed my interest right from the beginning and kept me flipping the pages until the very end. I was in the mood to read an angst-filled book that would take me on a whirlwind ride of emotions…and this book delivered.

Caitlyn Michaud grew up in poverty on a small island off the coast of Maine. She didn’t grow up in the ideal family with a picture perfect life. Since her mother had mental impairments and her father lost his hand in a fishing accident, employment opportunities were few and far between. Over the years they took in foster kids in order to make ends meet.

Heath Deprey was used to being bumped from foster home to foster home. He never really had a home to call his very own. When he arrived at the Michaud’s house, he began to feel a sense of normalcy in his life. He also met his younger foster sister, Cat (Caitlyn).

Cat and Heath became very close in the year that he lived with her family. They fell in love and shared the most intimate parts of themselves. Their relationship seemed perfect…until Heath left suddenly and without warning.

Four years later, Caitlyn has moved on and has reinvented herself into the young woman that she had always wanted to be, but she has never forgotten her first true love. She is a university student, a sorority sister, and she has the perfect boyfriend. She has left “Cat” back on the small island and is now “Caitlyn”, the girl who is on the right road to success.

Everything in Caitlyn’s life seems to be perfect until Heath shows up. Old feelings that had been buried are forced back to the surface and the painful heartache of their four year separation is a nagging reminder of what could have been. When Caitlyn’s past meets her present, she is having difficulty deciding who her future will be.

There are so many questions that need answers, so much time has passed, and there is still a deep love that is burning strong. Caitlyn had finally found a boyfriend who offered her love, support, and a stability that she never really had before, but now she is torn between the man who is ideal and the man who still owns her heart.

There is a ton of turmoil in this book and that is exactly what I like! This is not an easy love story where everything is cut and dry. The characters are flawed and their emotions are real. Call me a sucker for punishment, but I appreciate a story that can tear at my heart. This was the first book that I have read by this author and it definitely won’t be the last.
