Carina Painter lives a life she created in between the pages of her bestselling novel. At least, that’s what she outwardly portrays. A heart-rending childhood followed by an abusive engagement leaves her broken in all ways possible. A chance encounter provides the fork in the road she so desperately desires.
Navy SEAL Smith Eppington is fighting the war of his lifetime. One that isn’t fought with weapons and highly sought intelligence. It’s a battle to remember his past. The accident that scarred seventy five percent of his body, and stole the life of his best friend also seized parts and pieces of his memory. When an author asks to interview him for a fiction novel, he’s ready to pour his heart out no matter the cost.
The friendship that blossoms between Smith and Carina is something extraordinary. It’s a living, breathing love story about finding yourself, change that is out of your control, grasping what you can, and letting go of everything else.
In a twist of kismet, remembering could destroy everything, but fiction may be what saves the day. A friendship built on new truths and a relationship torn apart by old lies collide in a poignant novel by International Bestselling Author, Rachel Robinson.
Tera’s 5 star review
I’m really surprised I haven’t heard more about this book because it’s good… really good. I typically don’t do military books, but ever since Making Faces, I’ve been more open to them.
Rachel Robinson created a fantastic character in Carina. I LOVE her. She is such a broken character that we get to watch grow into a confident, strong woman. I also love Smith. We get to watch him learn how to balance love, loss, and honor. Throwing them together was nothing more than just a beautiful, harsh love story that was inevitable. There’s love and laughter in this book. There was heartbreak. There was just purely good writing and wonderful characters. There are a few little cliche parts towards the end of the book, but it really didn’t take away from how much I truly did enjoy it. I will have NO problem picking up the rest of this series.
