“I will always be there for you, Mady, always.”
One month later, I was slammed with the realization that there were some things you just can’t count on being true.
College sophomore, Madelyne Stewart, has it all—a wonderful home, a close-knit family, and great friends. But when tragedy strikes, it flips her world upside down. She struggles to deal with the chaos of her crumbling life.
On the brink of failing her classes, Mady reluctantly agrees to study with a tutor. Max Granger drifts into her life like a breath of fresh air. Not only is he intelligent and an excellent tutor, he’s funny, laid-back, and has the amazing ability to soothe her troubled soul. His striking looks top off a complete package any woman—Mady included—would want. Except, she isn’t looking to add anything else to her broken plate.
Can Mady find a way to make it though her pain and see what is in front of her? Will she take chance on Max? Or will the pieces of her heart be too broken to mend?

He cleared his throat. “Nothing, sorry.”
I took a quick drink of my water bottle, and again, I caught Max watching me. “Why do you keep looking at me? Do you want some water or something?” I asked, holding the bottle towards him.
He licked his lips, and my eyes zoned in to his. Wow, they really were something—sensual and just a shade darker than his toffee skin. He was quite the sight. I shook my head as he grabbed the bottle from me and took a swig.

This book... as I started to read it I knew it would be a book worth reading. I was hooked from the start. If I could I would have read it while working and I didn't even have to sleep. This was not the first book I have read from this author. She had already made me a fan with her first book that I have beta read for her. It was a really great book and I loved it.
This book though....I didn't know what the book was at first because I didn't have to know because I knew this author and loved her book. I'd read anything by her. This book struggled with a difficult subject. Suicide. Although I haven't been the one that had the event with suicide, my mom had and it left a lot of problems and pain behind.
This may have been the event that had 'started' it the book went on so perfectly. The writing is great and I simply can't say enough about this without giving away the important details. Well, the suicide is an important detail but it's also important to know before reading this book.
It's totally worth reading though. Trust me.
