My Review: Haylee has built walls around her heart due to lots of devastating events in her life. Ryan lost his brother and father to an accident when he was younger, and his Mom never really recovered from the loss. Both swear off anything even looking like a relationship, not wanting to be vulnerable again. They fell into an easy friendship, but once Ryan who is in the Army deploys, they soon realize that they miss each other more each day. They write letters, getting to know each other more, and falling for each other. Tragedy strikes multiple times making you wonder if one person can stand that much tragedy, but it does strengthen their bond. I like that their relationship grew over time, and they started as friends first. A great debut for thid Author’s first book.
Haylee Jordan is no stranger to heartbreak. Growing up, she quickly learned to fend for herself, and after a hellish night in high school, she knows the only way to keep her heart safe is to keep everybody else out.
Ryan Porter considers himself married to the military. After losing his father and brother at a young age and witnessing the subsequent downfall of his mother, Ryan has sworn off any semblance of love.
After Ryan helps Haylee out of a sticky situation, the two find themselves growing closer, but with Ryan’s impending deployment and Haylee’s trust issues, they vow to never let it become something more.
However, Ryan quickly finds himself falling for Haylee, and Haylee is unable to deny that Ryan makes her happier than she’s been in a long time. Will the two of them be able to overcome their pasts and open their hearts? Or will they always be determined to keep everyone at a safe distance?
