Clay never stopped thinking of Maggie. Even after ripping their lives apart and leaving her behind to get the help he so desperately needed. He is healing...slowly. But his heart still belongs to the girl who tried to save him.
When a sudden tragedy brings Maggie and Clay face to face again, nothing is the same. Yet some things never change.

And can two people who fought so hard to be together, finally find their happiness? Or will their demons and fear drive them apart for good?
The thing about love, is even when it destroys you, it has a way of mending what is broken. And in the shadows, you can still see the light.
I'm happy with this book. I can really see a change in Clay. He' s growing up and he's working on living with his problems.
I like that the book is written in a dual point of view. I'm happy that we can see what Clay it thinking and what it going on in his life. I found that really interesting.
I didn't think Maggie changed much. She is still much the same. She did learn from her experience and relationship with Clay but she is still a bit blindly in love. On the other hand there relationship has changed. I know I said she hasn't changed much, her personality didn't but she was a bit more cautious the second time in her relationship with Clay. I'm happy with that. It's gotten a bit more mature.
What is this book all about
Well, this book takes of where the last one ended. Clay has been admitted to a psychiatric facility and he's getting better and better. No, his problems wont disappear over night, and he will have many hard years ahead of him but he's healing. And healing takes time.
Maggie is trying to deal with her broken heart, but moving on is more difficult than she thought. She still loves Clay and she is mad at him for leaving her.
Due a family matter Clay is going home. Altho he is getting better, he isn't better yet. He finds it difficult to control him self, control his problems around maggie. During therapy he found out that Maggie is one of his triggers which makes him lose control.
Even after all that's happened Clay and Maggie still love each other. And there willing to give it an other chance. But this time they take it more slowly.
What did I love
I loved to read about Clay's healing procces. He really didn't have it easy and i'm proud of him for working on it instead of running away like he used to. On top of having his own problems, he has hateful, crappy parents which left him with serious self-doubt and self-esteem issues. That with having bi-polar personality disorder it's difficult for him. But I found him easy to love. Yes he isn't easy to handle but I really felt for him.
I liked that Maggie didn't just jumped back into the relationship and ignored their problems like she did before. She really made an effort to work on it.
I'm really happy with the way this story turned out. It was very interesting and I read both the books in one sitting. I just had to know what happened next.
