"I couldn't have forgotten about you even if I'd tried. The seas could have frozen over. The heavens could have come crashing down to earth. Time could have stood still, and I would never have been able to cleanse myself of you." 


Twelve years ago, I ran to stay alive.

Port Royal, South Carolina, was my home. I was born there. I fell in love there. And I nearly died there. I never thought I'd go back. Now, after so many years, I have to return to bury the man who made my life a living hell. Some nights, I used to cry myself to sleep, praying my father would die. Other nights were different. Other nights, there was him.

Callan Cross.

My first confidante. My first kiss. My first love. My first everything: Callan was the glue that held me together when everything else was falling apart. He was my savior. He was there for me whenever I needed him...Until he wasn't.Every night, I've seen the love of my life in my sleep. I just never thought I'd have to face him again.

Twelve years ago, I f*#@ed up big time.

Living life through a camera lens is sometimes easier than dealing with it head on. Scratch that. It's always easier. For over a decade, I've been a master of my art, taking photographs all over the world. Yet despite all of the countries I've visited, the amazing things I've seen, the beautiful women I've screwed, my heart has remained in pieces.

Coralie's the only woman I've ever loved, will ever love. And I'm determined to show her that we're meant to be together. Even if it means unearthing the bones of the past in the process.

A lifetime and a thousand miles have stood between us.
Now, there's no length of time I won't wait, no distance I won't travel, in order to make her mine. 
*** STANDALONE contemporary romance, with hints of darkness. This novel contains serious themes of violence that some readers might find uncomfortable*** 

Callie Hart has been one of my 'go-to' authors since I discovered her 'Blood & Roses' series.  Matter of fact, you can find a couple reviews from her 'Dead Man's Ink' series HERE & HERE.  I was waiting for the third book in the 'Dead Man's Ink' series to come out when I discovered this standalone.

I knew that I would enjoy this book because I am a huge fan of the author but I was totally going in blind (as I prefer to do). The cover also worked in the book's favor because it is simply gorgeous!  Once I dove in and started reading, I was hooked!

This book is definitely unlike anything I have ever read from Callie Hart.  It's just as good as the other books except for one big thing: It's WAY better!  I laughed.  I cried.  I even screamed with emotion from time to time.  I even hounded my best friend until she read it.  Waiting by the phone for her to call when she got to "that one part."  I hadn't spoiled it for her.  I didn't have to.  And guess what-- She definitely called!

I guess what I'm trying to say is: Get this book now!!  It's a quick, but dynamic read that will give you all the feels.  It's also at the top of my favorite books read in 2016 list.  And that's why I rated it

One of the Best!
