Peyton and Colton grew up not only as brother and sister, but as thick as thieves. After the sudden death of their parents, Colton decides to enroll in the Marines, bringing Peyton along for the ride. While Colton falls for the love of his life, Peyton settles for a man who she has fun with.
But when Colton receives his orders for deployment, he leaves Peyton to take his place next to his newly pregnant wife Julia until he returns.
When double tragedy strikes, Peyton barely manages to hold on to her own life, struggling to make sense of everything happening around her. With her grip slowly slipping, the third tragedy hits when her doctor tells her that it might be time for her to let go.
Will the news from her doctor finally set her free and allow her to truly live? Or will the verdict only cause her to give up completely?
Peyton is dealt a difficult hand. She suffers not one, not two but three major tragedies. And all at the same time as her relationship crumbles. I have to say, Peyton does an incredible job holding it all together. I'm not sure how I would cope under similar circumstances. But she isn't alone. Her best friend Taylor and her partner Ashton are there for her. And Hunter. Ah, Hunter. I adore him! The most kindest and compassionate man who is selfless and giving. My favorite part is when Hunter takes charge and takes care of everyone. Brownie points!
"Let me take care of this."
His large, calloused hands rest on my shoulders. I can feel the heat from his hands seep into my skin, and all I can think of is a heated blanket.
