That’s all it took for my life to fall apart. Now all that’s left is deception and betrayal. I don’t know who I am anymore. I don’t know who to trust.
So I leave, searching for the truth hidden behind a web of lies.
The only thing I take with me, besides a bag of clothes, is the memory of one night. That one night with Frankie, my best friend’s little sister. The woman I have loved as long as I can remember.
The memory is what keeps me going when I learn the truth. It’s what keeps me sane when I feel like I’m losing my mind. And, it's what drives me back to a life I ran from eighteen months ago.
Yet, nothing is the way it used to be. Frankie has a secret. One that changes everything. Changes who I am. Letting her go is not an option. I have to make her trust me. I need to make her mine.
But I have a secret of my own. One that keeps me awake at night. A secret that could make me lose Frankie forever. It’s not a chance I can take.

*Though this book can be read as a standalone, it's recommended to read 'That One Night' first to get the full picture.
|OH WOW! I really enjoyed That One Night last year and to read this story, it melted me even more towards Ben, not like my heart wasn't gooey for him prior, but this novel really lets you in and see how he came to do what he did.|
My heart honestly broke for Ben reading through his side of the story. I felt that Wright wrote a perfect companion to That One Night with this one. It mirrors beautifully and you really get a sense of the pain that Ben went through. Reading his ups and downs really hits you hard with the feels. When he does finally come back, you get to feel the range of emotions he felt finding out about Frankie. The chemistry between Frankie and Ben is stunning as she fights because of being hurt, which I cannot blame her honestly, and he never stopped wanting her. What I love is that this tale could be playing right out in front of you. That this could really happen. You get such a sense that these two belong together and that love never died no matter the pain that was caused.
Since half the novel mirrors That One Night and you see things through Ben's eyes, the sorrow and pain when it comes to his dad, then seeing his parents had me bawling. Mending your past to move along to the future he was building with Frankie was beautifully written and I really cannot wait for more from Wright. She is an amazing writer who should not be overlooked!
Josie Wright has always been a bookworm, spending every free moment with her nose buried in a book. While others were out partying, she spent her evenings with Heathcliff, Sydney Carton or Snape. Romance, fantasy, thrillers - you name it, she read it.
Thanks to the Kindle, she finally arrived in the 21St century and discovered the Indie literature world. Josie has been lost to it ever since. With her love for the written word and her promiscuous feelings for countless book boyfriends, the next logical step was to start writing. The voices in her head and her imaginary friends wanted out to play and so she wrote her debut novel "That One Night", that's to be released early summer 2015. And the good news is, there are more voices and imaginary friend where Ben and Frankie came from.
Josie is a financial expert by day and a writing junkie by night. The rest of the time she's a bit of a hippie, a bit of a goth and many things in between. Josie loves to spend time with her husband when she can tear herself away from her book boyfriends. She loves video games, movies, good food and even better music. She's addicted to chips, long baths and shoes. Oh, and books of course. Definitely books.
