They were friends, lovers, and then husband and wife.
They were supposed to be together forever.
He was her Superman.
She was his happiness.
And then he went pro.
And she doubted something that was supposed to be forever.
Mistakes were made in exchange for dreams, and hearts were shattered.
Their forever crumbled right before their eyes.
He went on to play for the Washington Warriors. He ate, breathed, and slept professional hockey. All he had left after her was the ice. He was in magazines, he won a Stanley Cup, and he had a crowd of people screaming his name. He had everything. Didn’t he?
It’s hard to move on from an addiction, and she was addicted. Drunk on love too early on, she never truly moved on from her first love. She faded in and out of life, trying to ignore her need. But bad habits have a way of coming back when you least expect them too.
For years they went separate ways, until her Superman falls from the sky.
He was on a helicopter after a big win when the engine cut out. He knows he’s not making it out alive. Even with the screams of his teammates shouting in the background as they crash toward earth, all he can think of is her. He’ll never get to see her again…
Love is unforgiving dragging her back to heartache. She only wants to help him get better from the accident and move on with her life. She never planned on falling back in love with him. She never planned on falling so hard a second time.
Lovesick and broken, they crash right back into each other.
A second chance at love with your first love under extreme circumstances.
Gavin's success in his hockey and the trappings that came with it drove a wedge between him and his wife, childhood sweetheart and best friend Jasmeen. When Gavin's helicopter crashes and kills everyone else on board, his life is put in perspective and he reaches out to Jasmeen to help him back from the dark place he finds himself in.
True love can stand the test of time and can overcome the worst odds. This was a book where the focus was very much driven by the characters and the way they are feeling rather than outside events. The isolation gave them the time they wouldn't have gotten any other way. This was a heart breaking, heart warming and heart felt read.
