My Rating: 4 Stars
Through all the years that passed, the memory of their love never faded.
Motivational speaker and drug rehab counselor Ward Gemmell can hold an audience in the palm of his hand-because he knows what it's like to have everything he loved slip through his fingers. When a particularly heartfelt speech reunites him with the daughter he never knew he had, suddenly the love of his life is back within his grasp. What could a guy like him do to earn a second chance?
Good girl Ansley Marlow was heartbroken the day Ward revealed his hidden life-the kind of secret that would tear anyone apart. But so many years have passed and so much has changed that it isn't as hard now for her to believe in fate and redemption, even when those around her are unforgiving. All she needs is the strength to reach out and reclaim the beautiful life she should have had so long ago.
I really liked this book. A drug addict, that became clean, a long lost lover and a daughter he never knew he had. Will They have their ever after?
Ward Gemmell is a drug rehab counselor, who helps teens overcome drug abuse and does motivational speeches at high schools. One day while he was at a high school he was approached by a girl begging him to let her volunteer at the rehab because her dad had been a drug addict and she thought that maybe if she helped someone like him, she would feel like she was helping him. He felt bad for the girl and said he would send her parents some information about the program, and then when he looks at the paper with the familiar name on it, he realized he was face to face with his daughter. I liked Ward, I also felt a little sorry for him. He is like a handsome guy that you really could relate to, but he is also a jerk and hurts people without even realizing it. He is one of those guys that lots of books have and that make him so enticing.
Ansley, the mother of the daughter, the girl Ward has always been in love with. She is a bundle full of emotions where ward is concerned, she misses him, yet she doesn’t want him to be around their daughter because he might hurt her, and then she’s angry at him for not coming back for her. Until she learns the truth, and its enough to make you feel sorry for them.
