Live for today...

Tomorrow isn't a promise.
This is the motto of Bryant and Rose's relationship, especially considering the roller coaster they've been through over the past few years.
The problem is, neither of them took into consideration the past they tried to keep hidden.
Until it's too late.
Soon they both realize they are being suffocated by the secrets of their pasts they have kept from one another. When the past collides with the present, it becomes the ultimate test to their relationship with more people hoping it fails, than survives.
They must rely on each other like never before as they fight to survive the secrets they now regret keeping from one another. While tomorrow isn't a promise, with the past waging a war, Bryant and Rose may not be able to survive--even today.

"I love you, Rose," Bryant softly whispered in my ear, sadness lingering in his tone as he placed a kiss on my neck. I could tell by the tone of his voice he knew that he was being kept in the dark, and it was hurting him. Hurting him hurt me. It sucked.

I felt I owed him so much more, so I rolled over looked into his eyes, struggling to find the courage to tell him about my nightmare. While I didn't remember the one I had just had, the real version was a scar the would never heal, a memory that would never leave me. The nerves balled in my throat, choking me and preventing me from speaking aloud. His chocolate brown eyes met mine as I searched them for the strength I needed. He looked at me lovingly with adoration, unaware of my inner demons. I was his. From day one, Bryant had thought me to be an innocent. We had just been through so much over the course of our relationship I just wasn't confident we could survive any more obstacles in our path.

"I love you too, Bryant. Always and forever." I placed three sweet kisses on his lips. Our tradition. Three kisses every time. One for the past, one for today, and one for the future.


Rose and Bryant are finally starting their life together, but Rose is keeping secrets and eventually her past begins to catch up to her and the secrets she kept hidden come tumbling out. 

One of the obstacles that Bryant and Rose face is Jordan - again. I didn't care for him in the first book nor do I care for him in this one either. I don't like how he messes with Bryant and Rose's heads and felt that after all these years he should let them be, because obviously that's the way things are meant to be.

I am a big Team Bryant fan. Yes, he had his jerk moments in Expire Regrets, but you can tell how much he truly cares about Rose, especially in this book. Their connection has been undeniable since the first book and that connection and their chemistry continues on in this one.

Once again Megan's writing keeps you on a roller coaster ride and you have no choice but to hang on. As I was reading my emotions were all over the place - happy, confused, heartbroken. I definitely recommend having tissues on hand as you experience this thrill ride.

I laughed, I cried..

And ultimately that's what all the best books do to you, which is why I have to give this one a big thumbs up and five stars to boot.
