College senior Kate Camden has learned to adapt - to her last year of school, to the promise of motherhood, to the fact that she’s doing it all alone. But just when she’s learned to adjust, heartache threatens to break her apart.
Pro hockey player Jason “Ryke” Ryker has it all: adoring fans, a promising career, and a beautiful wife. But when his seemingly perfect life is shaken by tragedy, he’s left questioning whether having it all is ever more than an illusion.
When circumstance brings Kate and Ryke together, they discover they don’t have to hurt alone. Bound by a grief that haunts them both, they must rely on one another to survive heartbreak. But that grief is more powerful than they realize, and the tie that binds them together may ultimately tear them apart.
Kate Camden, college senior and pregnant, not really how she planned her last year in college but she willingly accepts it. When an incident happens beyond her control, she finds herself reeling in grief and having a hard time letting go.
Pro hockey player Jason "Ryke" Ryker didn't have time to adjust to his wife's death, one day she was there and the next she was gone. Ryke has dealt with his grief and the grief group he attends has been a blessing in disguise. When he sees Kate for the first time in the group, he is mesmerized by her courage, beauty, and strength. As the two form a friendship, they both find a calm with one another that is soothing. But Ryker wants something more from Kate and Kate is worried about being hurt again.
This was a truly beautiful story. I cried more than once, but it was a a good cry that went from sadness to happiness. Very deep read and the story flows so you can appreciate the growth in both characters. Ryke although gets flustered with Kate and her hesitancy to start something is a true gentleman. Wonderful read.
