A troubled young mother yearns for a shot at redemption in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover. After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter's life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself. The only person who hasn't closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna's daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna's life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them. The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.

"*WARNING THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS* This one was sad... but not sad enough to make me cry lol. I'm waiting for the Colleen Hoover book that will make me sob, I thought this one will be it but it wasn't. So I originally wasn't going to read this one, I've never had the urge to pick it up but my bookclub was going to read it and so I had to get it. But then I never joined in on the discussions, and now I buddy read it with a friend and it was fun. I had to close the book when they said that Scotty was alive for 6 hours and crawling for help, I just couldn't believe that he had to die that way, all alone and in massive pain. I was kind of mad at Kenna, like why would you leave if you loved him? But then I stared reading more and I finally understood why. It sucks for her and his family/friends. I do feel like she should've walked out right away when he said his name is Ledger, seriously Kenna, another bad decision on day 1 or was it 2? Anyways, she messed up and I was upset on her behalf because of all the assumptions they threw at her. Like she just used ledger for details on her daughter and stuff like that. Don't you think she would've been doing many things to get that information? I actually disagree with kenna when she said that all mothers(who made mistakes) should get the chance to see and meet their daughters. Not all mothers deserve that chance. I actually didn't like the name Diem lol. But I did love the epilouge, with baby Scotty. Good read!"
"I’m at loss of words… This book was devastating and heartbreaking. My chest felt heavy even though I was still few chapters in. I cried. I cried like a baby. The more the backstory of the tragic incident unfolded, the more devastated I felt. With absolutely no doubt or second thought, I loved Ledger the most in this book. He is so perfect in many ways. He was supportive, sweet, caring, loving, considerate, respectful, understanding, and compassionate. I can’t find a flaw in him whatsoever. As of Kenna, she deserves the whole world. I started out with feelings of resentment towards her, but I was wrong. I was very wrong. I understand her a lot. I have never been in her situation (or even a similar one) but I felt for her so much as the story went on. I felt like I was experiencing the same emotions as her. My heart broke for her. I cried for her. Usually, I am not this dramatic, but damn this book was just overwhelming to me. This is my third CoHo book… I think it has become my most favourite book, first to It Ends with Us, from this author. It was a great read! "
"Ahhhhhhh! 😭🥰 #ColleenHoover does it again! Another 2 sit read. This was amazing! Pure definition of “one mishap/mistake doesn’t make you a bad person” this story was beautiful, real, raw, emotional and so many emotions all in one. I cried and I smiled, my heart ached and my heart also felt so warm. #ColleenHoover does NOT disappoint. I swear 9/10 ⭐️ if you haven’t already, do so now! 🙏🏼🥰"
