One night … one kiss … one touch … will change everything.
Kelley Moore’s tragic home life should make him a survivor. But when he’s uprooted yet again, his plans for a better future seem impossible. Being a player on and off the football field is all he knows, until Lenora Wells. The beautiful town princess makes him feel and want things he never thought he could have…
Lenora will do anything to get out of her town, even if it means dating the wrong guy. There’s one problem: she can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous, complicated boy with the unusual eyes who gives her butterflies and makes her question her choices.
When their lives collide, the world shifts and not in their favor. Four years later, the sins of their past can never be taken back and forgiveness won’t come easy.
College is a different game, a second chance for something better.
She’s not the girl he remembers and he’s the one boy she can never forget.
He’s made a name for himself as the star quarterback — the golden boy who can do no wrong. But he’s only interested in being her hero.
Despite everything, she can’t deny he still makes her heart flutter; and she’s got him chasing butterflies.

Patricia‘s Review – 5 Stars: ☆☆☆☆☆
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Again, Terri E. Laine brings us an amazing and emotional story!
This book is insanely good, once you pick it up you wont be able to put it down until you reach the last page, because you get enthralled by the story, the characters and the need to know what will happen next.
The writing is flawless, the plot unpredictable, the emotions pained… there’s so much pain in this story, so much angst, so much hope…
I finished reading it last night at 1 am, and still now, hours later, just thinking about everything Kelly went through makes me so sad! Angry even! Kelly deserves the world!
The book is told in two parts. While they are teenagers:
Since a little kid, the protection he should have had is none. Growing up in a home full of pain and abuse, somehow he learnt how to be a man, a caring man. A respectful man above all! His love for his mother kept him sane, chasing his dream, until they need to leave, again.
Lenny sees herself in a position that any parent shouldn’t put their kids. She’s hurting emotionally, trying to deal with it the best she can until one day she sees the most amazing boy in front of her. And the butterflies start
But nothing is as easy as it should for these two… they will love, they will laugh, they will suffer, they will cry, but most of all they will grow up with hope in them.
The second part of the book is painful, heartbreaking even. Its where you will get the whys and whens and whats of their relationship.
Nothing prepared me for this part of the story and I really didn’t see it coming! For me that’s one of the reasons that makes this book a favorite and must read!
Terri E. Laine, thank you so much for this beautiful and heartbreaking story!
