This book was real amazing and enticing. This is in Leo/ Jake’s point of view of the first story of this series. I loved books with both the girl and boy’s pov. I like to see what both of them think. This book goes back into the past every once in a while so you must keep updated where you are in the book but I still enjoyed this book. Thats why this book deserves a 6 star rating.

The ending was so sweet I loved seeing how he asked her to marry him. He asked her on there roof to marry him and it was just so romantic. Also what he planned to do with that house was just so sweet and caring and I loved that plan so much because the children needs something so special. Foster children needs to know that they are special to and that is exactly what Leo and Evie doing.
“We didn’t know how much love and forgiveness and understanding would be required to make it back on the path we were meant to be in, together. But what we did know was that we were here because we had both been willing to fight; to fight for each other, to fight for ourselves, to fight for love. And that means that despite all the pain that we had endured to be where we are, in the end, love won.
