This book was amazing. I freaking LOVE SC Stephens. She is such an awesome author! I LOVED this book!!! I think this book is absoultely wonderful, even better than the first. I am in awe of SC Stephens and her amazing ability to write such raw, sincere characters and such a wonderful story. This book is all about trust. Given Kiera and Kellans history its no wonder that they have a hard time trusting one another. Kellan and Kiera are not able to be together throughout this novel as Kiera is in school and Kellan is working on his music career. I think this book is a realistic in the sense that most people can relate to having trust issues in a relationship. 

Kellan and Kiera love never ceased to amaze me. Their relationship may not be roses all the time, but Kellan is so sweet, and so thoughtful. He was so romantic!!! It was obvious throughout the book that there were numerous tests and struggles regrading trust and what can love withstand. Does a passion like theirs remain and continue through time and space? What can they withstand over the course of their relationship? It may start with love but it ends with trust. 

I think what I liked the most about the novel was that the tests that their relationship went through seemed typical given their situation. I also really enjoyed getting to know the other characters in the novel. Though the characters are in book 1, the reader really gets to know the other minor players a lot better, specifically Kiera friends at home. I loved Abby. She is so fierce and fun! I think it is a good depiction of other women too. Not all women are these faithful lovers, so are a bit more unruly. It was nice to see how that type of role plays out. I cant wait for the next book!
