Publisher's Summary

Love is strange. It comes out of nowhere, and there's no logic to it. It's not methodical. It's not scientific. It's pure emotion and passion. And emotion and passion can be dangerous because they fuel love...and hate. I'm now a reluctant connoisseur of both - an expert through immersion. I know them intimately.
When I fell in love with Miranda, it was swift and blind. She was the person I'd elevated to mythical status in my head, in my dreams. Here's the thing about dreams:They're smoke. They're spun as thoughts until they become something we think we want. Something we think we need. That was Miranda. She was smoke. I thought I wanted her. I thought I needed her. Over time, reality crept in and slowly dissected and disemboweled my dreams like a predator, leaving behind a rotting carcass. Reality can be a fierce bitch. So can Miranda. And I can be a fool...who believes in dreams. And people. And love.

Another great romance from Kim Holden

Love, absolutely love the narrator Alyx Kidd. I loved the life affirming heart of this story, the well written love scenes and the great mix of drama, thoughtfulness and mirth.

So Much More

I read the Audible version. And loved the narrators. This story has had me engrossed for days while driving to/from work, walking on the treadmill and the hours in between.

Let me start by saying how much I despised Miranda. This is a story of goodness. Fathers giving love so freely. Children smiling and playing despite their circumstances. Young struggling women, mature beyond their years, giving free hugs. Neighbors offering support freely. It made my heart ache and gut twist at the cruel and manipulative things she did. Redeemable? Not in my mind, although an epiphany can put one on the right track, her soul is so damaged and almost evil.

Fate dealt her hand. Lessons learned the hardest, most painful way. Soul deep pain. Youthful happiness and spirit restored. Something, rather someone, missing discovered. Hearts healed. Love found...and survived. It's a story of goodness. And we all need some goodness. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ So Much More...

loved it

I have read this on my kindle, I own the paperback and have now listened to it. Listening to it brought new feelings esp in some scenes. The characters voices were good and clear.

Amazing!!

I absolutely LOVED this!!! This story and its characters had so many layers that I was captivated and spellbound through the entire book! I have never read a story quite like this before, and I have also never despised a character as much as I did with Miranda, but kudos to Kim Holden for taking a character like her and allowing her to redeem herself in the eye of the reader. And Seamus has got to be the best dad EVER!!! The love he had for his kids was simply indescribable. What a story!!!!!
