Our thoughts...
Struggle, mesmerized, endearing  

How did my life get so broken?  It’s a question Lacey St. James asks herself every day. Stuck raising her little brother in a trailer park while she works a dead end job at a grocery store, she has a stalker ex-boyfriend, a bad reputation, and no way out.

And then she meets Everett, whose presence changes her entire existence.

Everett is an outsider to her small community, in town for the summer house-sitting one of the grand mansions off the Mississippi coast. When he saves her in a bar one night, she’s grateful but wary of his intentions. Lacey doesn’t trust most men in her life, but for reasons Lacey she understand, Everett is completely captivated by her. He’s determined to show her that life can offer more than she’d ever hoped for, if only she believes in herself. As she works with him to free herself, Lacey desperately yearns to trust him, to move on and perhaps start fresh.

But what happens when she finds out that everything he’s told her about himself was a lie?

I have to say that I have had a great weekend of reading!  This book was really great!  You follow the life of Lacey, who has had a struggle since her father passed away and she had to move to Mississippi to live with her grandmother.  She has to live in a trailer park with her mom, grandma, and little brother.
It starts off with Lacey being two years out of high school.  She dropped out because of some really messed up things that happened to her.  You really feel for Lacey and your heart breaks from her story. 
Things begin to turn around for Lacey when she meets Everett.    Their story of falling in love is so beautiful, until Everett’s lies come to the surface.  You are not sure if they will have their happily ever after or not. 

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to any of my book friends.  It was an emotional read that made you wish for so much more for these characters.  It has been a little over a year since it was released and I wish I would have got my hands on it sooner! I will be checking out more from this author.
