“Heart-searing, sensual, and life affirming.” ―EMILY HENRY, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Soledad Barnes has her life all planned out. Because, of course, she does. She plans everything. She designs everything. She fixes everything. She’s a domestic goddess who's never met a party she couldn't host or a charge she couldn't lead. The one with all the answers and the perfect vinaigrette for that summer salad. But none of her varied talents can save her when catastrophe strikes, and the life she built with the man who was supposed to be her forever, goes poof in a cloud of betrayal and disillusion.
But there is no time to pout or sulk, or even grieve the life she lost. She's too busy keeping a roof over her daughters' heads and food on the table. And in the process of saving them all, Soledad rediscovers herself. From the ashes of a life burned to the ground, something bold and new can rise.
But then an unlikely man enters the picture—the forbidden one, the one she shouldn't want but can't seem to resist. She's lost it all before and refuses to repeat her mistakes. Can she trust him? Can she trust herself?
After all she's lost . . .and found . . .can she be brave enough to make room for what could be?

I inhaled this book. I started reading it at 6pm and did not stop until I finished it at almost 3am. We’re first introduced to Soledad in the first book in this series “Before I Let Go” and as the reader, you already know something is up with Soledad’s husband. What I didn’t expect was the twist! Not to spoil anything, but I was pleasantly surprised there was more to his sketchy ass than just being basic sketchy. I really felt for Soledad and I very much appreciated how her role was celebrated and that she found intrinsic value in being a mother and ALL of the various hats she wears while in that role 24/7. Just because she stayed at home and did ALL THE THINGS didn’t mean she wasn’t also a feminist. Now, let’s talk about Judah. He’s my favorite hands down. AND WAIT — The realistic autistic representation not only in his twin sons, but also in him! I work within this population and the varied presentations and realistic experiences really shined through. But back to Judah. He didn’t play games. He knew what he wanted and he respected Soledad enough to give her the time she needed to grow. To forgive and love herself. It was so beautiful. This is one of the best book father, ex-husband, and partner I have ever read. The only qualm I had with this book was a personal one. It totally made sense within the book and was realistic, but I don’t like reading about influencers and social media. But like I said, that’s a personal preference.
