High powered divorce lawyer, Victoria Larkin, is known as the ice queen. Tough. Emotionless. What they don’t know, is that ten years ago, she lost everything. Including her hope for the future.

Chase Monroe struggles with his own demons. Devastated by guilt and on a mission to correct his past, he uses his skills as a college psychology professor to help others move beyond their grief.

When Victoria is forced to attend grief counselling, she meets Chase, and there is an instant attraction. Chase is determined to help her confront her past and find happiness. Victoria is afraid to relive her pain.

Just as they begin to step forward, tragedy strikes and throws them backwards, and they find themselves, once again, shackled to the past.

Can Chase and Victoria find the path to a happy future together? Or will they forever be wishing for yesterday?

Victoria had it all once, a perfect little family, and even though she was young she wouldn’t have changed anything but then a horrible accident forces her world to change and she is no longer the happy, family focused person she used to be. That is until Chase comes into her life; determined to heal what is broken in her, Chase works at bringing the old ‘Tori’ back but can he do that? Especially since Chase is battling his own battle, one that could break them both for good once it is revealed?

“How can the sun shine? Doesn’t it understand that it’s lost its brightest rays?”

A slow starter this book, but once it gets going and Chase finally starts to pull the old Victoria out, I really got into it and became emotionally attached to both characters. And the huge twist towards the end had me reeling and literally gasping in shock!

“Never love.  Never the all-encompassing, do anything for the other, blinding type of love.  I wonder if I’m even capable. I wonder if I even deserve it. Once I thought I was in love and it was torn from me.”

The beginning had me in tears; I felt absolutely devastated for Victoria and the awful tragedy that happened to her. I could understand how something like that could you shut you down emotionally to protect yourself; even knowing this though it took me a while to warm up to the older Victoria as she was just so cold and unfeeling. But after she meets Chase and she starts to let her true personality shine through, I became impressed by her all over again and wanted desperately for her to see that her guilt was unfounded and that she deserves happiness.

“But, I do struggle every day, just like you do—and everyone else in here for that matter.  Wishing for God to give me yesterday.  To find a way to change the past and to breathe life back into those that were lost.”

Chase I loved from the beginning and never stopped. He was a brilliant hero; wanting to desperately help others find peace with their suffering, despite the fact that he himself is also suffering so greatly. So brave, kind, caring as well as, determined, strong and extremely sexy; he is the kind of man every woman wants and every family would love to have as an in-law.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a sexy expression on a woman’s face. Maybe that’s stepping over the line.” An adorable pink tinges his cheeks. “But I get the feeling that stepping into your space is the only way to pull you out of it.”

After the prologue I felt the plot took a little while to warm up but once it got there it never really slowed down. We had emotionally turmoils constantly being thrown at us, and we were left biting our nails wondering and dreading what Chase’s secret was. It was a hugely emotional story and was very sad in some parts but we also had a lot of laughter with Chase’s plans of getting the real Tori back; so don’t worry, this isn’t just about loss or heartbreak! And the twist at the end literally knocked me off feet! I was completely surprised and had no idea what this was going to do and how it would effect them both. I was grabbing my kindle and turning the pages rapidly, desperate to find the HEA I so desperately wanted for them both!

“I will fix her. I will fill the gaping hole in her chest with everything in my soul. She will feel again.  I’ll make sure of it.”

This definitely isn’t an easy read, your emotions will be put through the ringer; but it is also a beautiful read not only about loss, grief and guilt but also on forgiveness, moving on and finding love and happiness once again.
