She is the only woman he has ever thought about forever with. He sees the same feelings mirrored in her eyes. She just cannot past the promise of a future with his best friend. Regardless of his warnings, they marry anyway.

Kerris is a woman of her word. She has promised her husband she wants a future with him and she means to be faithful. They have so much in common from the past. They have scars others would not understand. If only she did not dream of Walsh.
Such a heart wrenching story with an open and raw, almost gaping wound. I felt the emotions right down to my soul. It just makes you want to take the characters and smack 'em up side of the head. I just have to give this book 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
