Publisher's Summary

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again. 

After 15 years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another. 

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side. 

All I wanted was for him to come back to me. 

Then, Jackson Emery appeared. 

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart. 

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him. 

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat. 

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear. 

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away. 

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me. 

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch....

I prayed for him to be mine. 

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

Another great book by this author! I've listened to them all because I always know that I will love whatever she writes and I know it will always be an emotional ride. This book has everything... sexy bad boy, small town darling, mean girls, family issues and all kinds of other hard things. I loved Grace and how she didn't let Jackson push her around but I wish she would have had that same backbone with everyone else. Jackson is a jerk but deep down his is a good guy with lots of issues. This book has a great HEA! Loved the way this one left me feeling.

The narration was PERFECT! Loved both of them, they were really the best choice for these characters

A Romance about Ordinary people dealing with life

This is a MUST READ ROMANCE. I love the fact that this story is about ordinary people trying to deal with live and death. Heartache and tragedy. Love and hate. It shows that compassion, kindness and love can help heal a broken heart.
NARRATION was AWESOME!

Disgrace

Oh my heart, this book will grab you by the heartstrings. Grace and her husband are separating after a long hard road in their marriage. Grace finds herself back in her hometown where her father is the pastor which means she is one of the town’s darlings.

Ahh, small towns and their gossip normally I love it but these busybodies are not so kind, smile to your face and talk behind your back.

Grace meet’s Jackson the towns “bad boy/reject” he isn’t all that nice but Grace just sees something in him that she can’t walk away from. They forge a friendship that grows.

Graces ex isn’t a nice fella, but once he sees what he can’t have he wants her back. Isn’t that how it always it.

I won’t keep regurgitating the story you can listen for yourself.

I loved the characters; Ms. Cherry has a way of making you engage with them, you root for them you cheer them on. You’re sad when they are sad.
My favorite character was Grace's sister.
My least favorite was Autumn.
My favorite character that grew I have two, Jackson’s father and Graces Mother.

I was blown away by the narration, I loved the southern accent? I think that is what it was. It was perfect and I am so glad it didn’t sound forced but like the narrators actually speak like that.

Small town love

I’m not really sure what to say about this one, so bear with me.

Periodically, I come across a book that really hits me in a weird sort of way. This one seemed a little slow to start. I didn’t love the main characters. I’m not a fan of flashbacks, etc.....
But, I couldn’t put it down. There was just something about it that kept me dangling on the hook.

Luckily, I finished it and realized that despite those items I listed above, the inspiration and overall storytelling was so beautiful. The characters are beautifully broken. It was real and so raw. I was simultaneously gutted and inspired. I think that’s the beauty of what this type of story offers it’s readers. It’s raw and so real. It pulled me in and made me examine the character’s motivations and inspirations. Ultimately, I found it to be a beautiful case study in the human condition.

The character development is amazing. The writing is great. The ending was more than satisfying. Overall, an amazingly heart-breaking and beautiful story.

The second time around

This was my second listen. I loved it the first time and just as equally the 2nd. Very lovely story. Small towns gossip has always been upsetting to me and this book was the definition of it. Great listen

This should be ten stars!

I am in awe. This is an incredible story. It has love, angst, loyal dog Tucker, tragedy, bullying, wonderful uncle and this is just part of Jackson’s story. Her story has a less than supportive Mother, a cheating husband, history of seven miscarriages, an adoring and supportive sister. This goody too shoes everybody pleaser learns from Jackson how to discover herself and those around them get some lessons too. I laughed out loud, cried blooper tears, and stayed up ALL night to finish it. It is a treasure. Get the narration too. It’s excellent. Really brings the story to life. Highly recommend. Gonna be on my to be reread list.

"I loved This Book! "<br />

"This read was amazing. So many things I could relate to. It was so real and dealt with so many ongoing issues - hate, faith, forgiveness, redemption, recovery - the list goes on and on. The narration was excellent and soothing. I truly enjoyed this read and do recommend it to others. "

It was alright

This was an ok listen, but didn’t grab me by the heart like ‘Behind the Bars’ (another book by this author) did. The small town pantomime cruelty and small mindedness got a bit tiresome, and the side character personality turn arounds at the end felt very fairytale and fake. It was alright though!
