Cover & Title - 4 out of 5

Favorite Character - Abby

Let me down slow and easy
Cause there ain't nothin' I can do
I hope and pray my faith won't leave me
When it comes down to me and you

This book was fresh, new and interesting. I was confused, worried almost how the author would manage to take a character from a minister to a sex loving woman. However the build up to the passion, sex.. the love, it was perfect.

You lyin' next to me
Fulfilled some destiny
I wanna cry
But I breathe a sigh

Abby did not come across like some wanton, turn coat hussy. No she was a woman who had missed a chance, a moment that changed her life & not for the better. She was still moral, full of understanding and a lovely character, she evolved throughout the book, she realized, they realized they were meant to be together. She spoke about soul-mates and I can honestly say that is what they felt like (for me) during this story. I was totally involved in their love and i adored it.

Overflow of emotion
And a hurt that'll never heal
If you close the door forever
The fate of pain is sealed

Towards the end of the book when the scandal happens, I was emotional. I was so worried everything was going to go to hell. Thankfully I got my happy ending and it came about in an amazing and moving way.
I am so glad i read this book and i would seriously recommend it. I am dashing of to read the next in the series now!

The lyrics quoted in the review are Breathe a sigh by Def Leppard, view them here, listen to the song here
