Disclosure; I received a copy of this book in exchange of my honest review. No monetary compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
Sapphire has come to grips with the fact that she’s a failure as a wife and an even bigger failure as a mother. Resigning herself to a life of simple detachment, she lives by one rule- No men.
That is, until she meets Collin. He is able to see past her inked skin, her pierced features, and her hardened heart. He is determined to worm his way into her life, even if she pushes him away at every turn.
But once her defenses are lowered, she remembers exactly why she erected them in the first place. She fears loss. She knows that the world is a dark, unforgiving place and doesn’t need another reason to be angry.
Can she open herself up and take a chance on someone who could eventually leave? Or will she run from from her fear of inevitable failure?
As she is tested time and time again, she realizes that she does have a sliver of control over the things that happen in her life. Not everything is predestined and doomed to fail. Or so she hopes…
At the precipice of a most important decision she wonders if she has the courage to step back into the roles she once failed to fill. She is tired of living with only rubble and destruction to keep her company and is faced with only two options.
She can fall, relinquishing her fate to the control of someone else.
Or she can jump.

Here are my thoughts on the book;
I think out of all of Nicole’s books that I’ve read, this one is my favorite so far! From the start of the book, I was completely immersed! I didn’t want to put it down in order to go to bed, but I knew if I didn’t, I would wake up late the next morning & my boys would miss their bus! The characters in the book are extremely easy to relate to & very like-able. There were definitely times in the book where I wanted to reach in & smack the crap out of Sapphire because she was just being foolish, like when she trashed her room! But other times, I really wanted to give her a big high five, like when she accidentally spilled hot tea on Todd! The whole book was very good & this is one that I would highly recommend to anyone! I laughed through out quite a bit of the book, there were times that I was scared – I was on the edge of my seat waiting to find out of Collin was okay after the storms. Being from Southern Missouri, we’ve gotten some really good storms, so I know the feeling of wondering if someone was okay after a storm! The very ending of the book made me tear up a little bit! Overall, Yes, this is a book that you MUST read!! It’s fantastic! I am very much looking forward to the next book in the Hopeless Heritage Series!
