Smashwords - Kobo
Two women. Carly & Tabitha. Both have suffered life-altering events that have left them both traumatically damaged.
Carly Sloan’s life was perfect until the night her security and innocence was torn from her. The vast repercussions from that horrific night threaten to destroy her stability and her chances for a happily ever after. Kyle Finnegan comes into Carly’s life at the height of her turmoil. Can he help her find what she desires most?
Tabitha Fletcher, on the other hand, has suffered from a very young age. She has been hiding from her past, which was full of abuse, loss and turmoil. She has been so brutally damaged that she has very little hope of redemption. The revolving door of men only leads her deeper into misery.
What circumstance brings these two women together unexpectedly and can they help each other heal? And will they each find what they need?
This book is not suitable for young readers. It is intended for mature adults only (18+). It contains strong language, adult/sexual situations, non-consensual sex and some violence.

I love this book!!  To have both women's POV is wonderful.  Carly is a strong woman who survived a horrific assault and found the love of her life. Unfortunately she is unable to have children due to that attack so long ago. Kyle her husband is so supportive and loving and has no qualms about adoption. 

Tabitha has lived through hell. She is on the run from an abusive ex and has already given up one daughter. Now after her boyfriend leaves her she finds herself pregnant again. So she decides to give this child up as well. She picks Carly and Kyle out of all the perspective parents and is going to give Emily to them. 

Each woman writes to their daughter Emily and we see through these notes how much each loves her. We hear each woman's story about their past and what makes them come together for this child. They build a relationship with each other as well. Carly just wanting to thank the woman giving her the best gift in the world. Tabitha working through the jealousy of giving up yet another daughter. 

Ms. Stiles has hit this one out of the park with her first try! I cannot wait to read more from this great new author!!

4.5/5 Stars!!
