Jason Bradley is a charming country guy. He lives a simple life that’s nothing like what Cassandra is used to. A single moment in life changed everything he thought he once knew, leaving him with a broken heart and an unplanned future.
What happens in Keaton is nothing Cassandra or her heart could have ever prepared for. The instant connection she shares with Jason is no secret, but what they're keeping hidden from one another is.
Will these two be able to find a way to trust each other or will their secrets tear them apart?

She never could’ve imagined that Jase wanted more to. He just knew his more was the forever kind of love. But what Cassie didn’t know was that even though she had her secret, Jase was carrying one of his own. Both would change everything.
After both fighting their amazing chemistry they finally decide to try for more. When they are together you can feel how strong their love is for each other.
Insert the forever teaser.
Once both their secrets are out my heart was hurting. I dont know if i really ever stopped hurting. And the end, man did not see that coming. And my heart hurts for everyone in this story. I am still reeling after a few days. I am sure I will be still thinking about this boom for some time.
I absolutely loved all the characters, Jase who has made it to my top book friend list, cassie for her strength through it all, Moose and Mel for sticking by their friends no matter what life threw their way, Trish and Bart, Jase's parents for their loving hearts.
This book is far from only 5 stars but since that is the max I will just have to give this amazing story of finding yourself and your soulmate.....
5 GIGANTIC HUMONGOUS AMAZINGLY STARS
At first I didn’t know how I felt about Cassie that is until I learned her story and why and what she was running from. I would be running too. I ended up loving her and felt her every emotion. She literraly crashes into Jason’s life and from the moment their eyes meet there is an undeniable connection.
I fell in head over heels in love with Jase from the go. I absolutely adored him. He threatened to take over my top book boyfriend spot and he is sitting right up there still pushing him off that perch. I cannot get this book out of my head and heart. There will always be a special place for Jase.
There were so many moments that my heart soared for these two and then my heart was shattered into a million pieces and I felt like I had suffered it all first hand. That is the signs of an outstanding book right there. When you are left staring into space and wondering how to move on from it and still reeling days later.
BA Wolfe has a masterpiece on her hands and I cannot wait to see what is in store for us next. Five stars is no where near enough!
I GREEN LIGHT THIS BOOK!!
5 OUTSTANDING AMAZING STARS!!!
“Alright.” He raised his brow as he walked over to the nightstand, writing something on the notepad. “Here’s my cell number, call me if you need anything. I only live about ten minutes away. Seriously, if you need anything, just use the motel phone.”I took the ripped piece of paper he handed me. “Thanks.” I knew I needed it so I could talk to him about my car, but that’s as far as it would go.“I mean it, anything,” he said as he walked to the door, resting his hand against the frame. “Can I get you something before I leave? Dinner?”
“No, I’m not hungry at all, but thanks for offering. I think I’m ready to get some sleep,” I admitted.
“I’ll keep you posted about your car,” he said.
“Thanks,” I said, thankful that I would get to see him again, but feeling like a mixed up basket case for not trusting him. I was a freaking mess.
“Goodnight Cassandra,” he said quietly before closing the door and walking away.
Yeah, right. Goodnight in this place was going to be hard to come by. I locked the door after he left and walked over to the bed. I drew the covers back and found exactly what I’d pictured… Stains. Gross. I pulled the covers back over the bed and decided to sleep with a towel over me instead. I walked into the filthy bathroom, quickly grabbed a towel, and ran back to the room like a scared child. I put on a pair of yoga pants and a t-shirt and was ready to get some rest. It had been an unusually long day between the long drive, the accident, and the hospital. Too exhausted for continued thinking, I let my brain off the hook and laid down on the hard mattress. As I pulled the towel over my body, I noticed my feet were going to be hanging out all night. Great.
I gently laid my sore head back onto the pillow and blinked my eyes a few times. I was right. Sweet dreams were extremely hard to come by in this place, but I tried. I closed my eyes and fell asleep.
Based on the way I felt the next morning, I’d gotten only a few hours of sleep at the most. Between the noises, the creaks, and the foul smell, I didn’t know which was worse. That was, by far, the worst night’s sleep I’ve ever had. The morning sun shone brightly through the yellowed curtains, and I decided to give up on trying to get any more sleep.
I ripped the towel off of me and was about to put my feet on the floor and there it was. Staring back at me as if I were invading his turf was an over sized, nasty, grey rat. “OH MY GOD!” I screamed as I jumped up and stood on the bed, unsure of what to do if he were to start climbing up. I let out another loud scream as it raised itself up with its beady little eyes staring, making it scurry off under the bed. This was even worse; now I couldn’t see the damn thing.
I jumped off the bed and collected my belongings faster than I even realized I could. I threw on a jacket before making a mad dash for the door, slamming it behind me. “Holy shit, that was gross,” I said breathlessly. I took a moment to compose myself, and to think about what to do next. I was not going back into that room. That was for certain.
“Are you looking for a place to stay yet?” I heard his familiar voice from afar. I peeked over the railing, and there he was standing with his arms crossed, wearing a sexy grin, faded jeans, and a tight white tee.
