Arianna 'Ari' Williams thought she experienced the depths of true love until the man of her dreams dismissed her with no explanation. Heartbroken and humiliated, she found herself changing the course of her life and picking up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now four years later, she has a successful career, amazing friends, and a young son with crystal blue eyes that reminds her every day of the love she imagined. Emotionally she has moved on but the wounds never healed. Reed Matthews has it all. Playing professional football was his always his dream. Being one of the most successful wide receivers in the league comes with money, fame, and all the women he wants. Even with all his wishes coming true, he never stops thinking of the one woman that owned his soul four years ago. A chance encounter brings Reed to the realization that Ari Williams not only hid a life changing secret from him, but also things weren't as they seemed all those years ago. He's determined to get her back and build their lives together. When the truth behind their deception is revealed- friendships are tested, families are torn apart, and the one person behind it all is relentless. Can Reed protect those he loves and build the future he dreamed of?
This is the kind of love story that will sweep you off your feet and remind you that true love is worth the work.
College sweethearts who through no fault of their own fall prey to a manipulative b*tch, find each other after 5 years. Reed's reckoning comes and he must decide how the rest of their lives will evolve. Without hesitation, he chooses. The rest of the story is what he must overcome in order to deserve, protect, and enjoy the rest of his life.
Well written, with endearing characters, this beautiful love story was one I could not put down. Reed is the lover and friend we all want. Persistent, brave,and totally committed he is that man you want to rely on. He will not let you down. Caveman, yes! A little stubborn, absolutely! In the end, he has a heart of gold and is more apt to nurture you and protect you than "beat his chest" like a gorilla.
Arianna is such a strong woman. She is the kind of young woman we all admire with her determination to survive and improve her life no matter what the circumstances. She is a character to look up to.
The trials these two characters go through while fighting this maniac stalker in their lives, will keep you at the edge of your seats.
