I fell in love with Thomas Wells and knew he was my forever.
I was sixteen when I gave him my heart.
Our love was the kind to last a lifetime.
But Thomas was broken.
The first day we met he told me he was going to become a Navy SEAL.
At nineteen he enlisted.
At twenty he married me.
At twenty five he left me pregnant and didn't turn back.
I knew he was suffering….
I also knew I couldn't save him.
He left me broken.
I was scared and alone.
Until I met Ryder St. John a wounded soldier…
He was lost.
I was lost.
Together we made sense.
I fell in love again…
What Ryder forgot to mention was that he held a secret so explosive that it could shatter both our worlds.
Halo is the light in the dark. She is Thomas' guiding light in a life of bad experiences. But the darkness and experiences of war overwhelm him and takes him away from Halo. Thomas leaves Halo pregnant and alone. When she gives birth to her son, she falls into wounded SEAL Ryder. Ryder is recovering physically and emotionally, whilst trying to remember who he is.
This was a story of forgiveness and healing, and of confronting your past and moving forward towards your future. It was a beautiful read that emotional and poignant. It is the flaws of the characters that pulls you into this book and keeps you hooked. Whilst the direction this book takes may appear to be obvious, you will want to ride out this journey with the characters through their many ups and downs.
