This was an amazing joy ride! My first book by S.E. Hall and it definitely won't be the last. This is a very enthralling love story about a boy who meets his true love at 10 years old and holds fast to his commitment to her through time and life's ups and downs. This is such a well written story with flawed characters and plot twists that in the end seem like a straight line. There were surprises throughout that kept me hungry for more. All I can say is that I want me a Keaton F*cking Cash -- are they handing those out somewhere?
Brooke Bloomingdale did a fantastic job as the narrator. I was feeling all those emotions with Henley and Keaton -- the laughing, the crying oh and all that hot loving. Another enjoyable listen by BB.
Absolutely worth a credit and multiple listens.

What a life-changing journey S.E. Hall has just taken me on.. through the heartache, regrets, loss, self-doubt, guilt and shame.. to then emerge on the other side renewed, regenerated, whole, sane.. and very much loved. There's depth to the storyline and the character growth that Henley went through was nicely paced as she lets go of the past, forgives herself and begins to live again in the here and now. Because there's a happy future ahead where she's not alone, where she's contented and where she's very much loved by her man.
After eight years away Henley returns to her childhood farm where bitter-sweet memories bombard her, familiar smells stop her in her tracks and a bucket full of regrets weigh her conscience down. However, she must persevere because Henley has her estranged Mother's funeral to arrange and a farm to run.. but a new friend is waiting to help her on the farm, guide her to make the right choices and offer her wise words of wisdom and encouragement. Gatlin won't be the one to steal her heart, that's reserved for Keaton,. but he is important and will help Henley write her own HEA ending.
Keaton Keaton Keaton.. Keaton f'ing Cash was Henley's childhood nemesis - his farm was next to hers and from the age of 10 a feud bickering developed between them that would last through her school years and until she returns 15 yrs after their first meeting. But Henley soon finds out that NOTHING was as she thought, years have been wasted and Keaton would turn out to be her rock, her salvation.. and her HEA.
What a well-written and delicious unfurling of a woman's struggles as she comes to terms with her life, the losses she's had, the years of assumptions she once made, the mistakes she has to own up to, the wonderful life she could have if she forgave herself.. and the forever kind of love that was always hers for the taking. Each scene was captivating, the characters felt real, the hero was a swoon-worthy sexy possessive yet supportive Alpha, the chapters flew by, the romance was beautiful and slow to develop, the passionate sex scenes were worth waiting for, there's some humor and the hero's impassioned words of devotion were heartfelt and raw. S. E. Hall has managed to weave angst, drama and a nice twist into the storyline too. Told from Henley's POV (except one important chapter towards the end which was from Keaton) and the narration that brought it all to life was just perfect.
Worth a credit? Yes, it was moving, addictive and emotional as Henley and Keaton are helped by Fate and Destiny to get a second chance to get it right.

This book was flawless and faultless. So pure and so giving...ahhh, I can't help the sigh. I've been reading / listening to so many books that have been leaving me a bit frustrated because they are completely ridiculous over the top or just underwhelming. Now this one...a story after my own heart, lots of laughter and tears in equAl measure, my husband had to check on me a few times because of sniffling and my kids wanted in on the joke when I was chuckling - what more can one want in a book? Well done SE Hall, like I said, faultless. Henley and Keaton! What a duo and Gaitlin --didn't see that coming! Had me in tears.
The narrator just brought it to life even more. What a performance, she definitely made the book go to another level, I will certainly be stalking the books she's narrated just for the experience she gives, whether she doing a male, female or child's impersonation - ah, divine! This is one pleased customer and I don't give my good reviews lightly!!!
