Kelly Kavanagh was Liam’s happily ever after, his loyal princess. A lifeline to something better than any high school dropout could ever hope for…until the day she left to pursue a dream that didn’t include him and slowly his kingdom crumbled to the ground.
Liam O’Connell was the sun to Kelly’s everlasting moon, her painted prince. A strong and devoted soul to fight the war she was slowly losing against herself…until his promises had become lies and her dream was the only way she would ever survive.
They have more than just miles and time between them now. The twin fortresses they’ve built around their hearts are next to impossible to scale. But, when two parallel fates collide in life and in death, will the impact be powerful enough to break down their self-imposed walls?
Every love story starts with Once Upon a Time, but in real life there are no fairytale endings, and the prince who rescues you...will never wear a crown.
AH! I am so in love with the way A.M. Johnson spins a story. I fell hard for Declan in Possession and we met Liam in that book. Kelly was mentioned in passing, but you just knew there was so much more to their story. As in Possession, the way A.M. Johnson handles family issues is just breathtaking - and this story resonated with me in such an intense way as I am the oldest sibling in my family as well. I felt so much sympathy and affection for Liam and just wanted him to get his HEA. Both he and Kelly were so beautifully flawed and real - this is one of those books where the characters and the story just stay with you long after you read the last word. This is definitely one of my Top Reads of 2017 and I can't wait to read more from A.M. 5 out of 5 wine glasses for sure!
