Publisher's Summary

Falling in love is easy.
Falling out of love is the hardest thing in the world.
And Elin and Ty Whitt are terrible at it.
The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build.
Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible.
Through the tears, the second-guesses, and the memories of a life built together, the world keeps spinning. With each turn comes clarity and hope - sometimes in the form of a pair of muddy boots by the back door or from the words of a wise friend.
When Ty shows back up with a newfound determination to put his family back together, Elin's torn between the fights of the past and the possibility of a new start. This is the man that holds her heart, the man she loves beyond anything else. But this is also the one person in the world that can cause her the most pain.
Life's not always easy. Love's not for the faint of heart. But with life comes lessons and Ty and Elin have the scars to prove it. But it's their love written in those scars that will hold them together...or break them apart.
A brand new standalone romance from USA Today best-selling author Adriana Locke.

Ty fell in love with Elin in the eighth grade and they've been inseparable ever since but now the tension of trying for a baby, too many fights, the damage of a Mine accident and the heartache of a miscarriage has finally taken its toll on their marriage and Ty does the unthinkable - he walks out on the love of his life. Erin is left broken but not alone - she has her best friend, her brother and another close male friend so, for weeks, they support and guide her.. until Ty walks back into her life - and this is where their emotional story starts (well after the sweet prologue).

Ty and Erin were, and are, deeply in love but the building stress of their lives got in their way and this is an account of a lost husband desperate to claim back his devastated wife, his life and his future but it isn't going to be easy.. but it will be worth it. And it's the story of a shattered wife whose broken heart needs to forgive, to heal and to build up faith that her trust won't be shattered again. It's also a story of close friendships and how their wisdom - and their sacrifice - can change lives.

A romantic dual POV plot as Ty and Erin slowly find their way back to each other and there's also nail-biting haunting drama that left me in tears. It has sex, angst, humor and passionate tender loving pleas that just made me want to swoon. Kai and Wen did a fantastic job as usual and their style of narration (where Kai does the male voices and Wen does the female ones) brought realism as each scene to life and their pain, heartache, anguish, love and hopes came across loud and clear.

Worth a credit? YES definitely it touched my soul - but not if you want a light listen or an easy-going listen.. because, at one point, I'm sure you'll be in tears too. Spoiler/reassurance - no cheating involved.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"


What A Powerful! Raw! Emotional Story! Perfectly narrated! Kia Kennicott and Wen Ross's did an amazing job bringing all the emotions to life! I could feel the hurt, anguish, love and all the emotions the characters went though. By the end, I was in tears!!!!

Ty and Elin's story will not leave the listener untouched. This married couple takes the listener through the uglier side of a relationships, the side if survived, only makes a couple stronger. The emotions are real, raw and all over the place. One moment I was frustrated with the characters, the next I was happy, then I was sad, and finally I was left feeling bittersweet. You know you've listened to a well written story, when you feel all the emotions, and boy, did I felt them all.

Between the heart-wrenching plot, and stellar narration this was an unforgettable story! Well worth a credit!
