Description from the publisher:
Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him. Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a “work hard, play hard” lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.
Cameron Bridge has spent the past five years married to the military, trying to escape the painful memory of losing Maya. After fighting his own war in the desert, he starts a new life in New York City, with his siblings, Olivia and Darren, by his side.
When fate brings Maya back to him in the heart of a city filled with its own hopes and shadows, can Cameron find the girl he once loved in the woman she’s become?
This is the first release in the Bridge series. They will need to be read in order.
Second chances – how often we all wish for a second chance to make the right decision. In Maya’s case, it wasn’t the wrong decision, it was just wrong timing. She and Cameron were so young; they made many of the impetuous mistakes of their youth, believing in now or never. When they are reunited after five years of trying to make it through their own lives alone, they both learn that sometimes we all need a second (or even a third) chance to get things right.
I loved both Maya and Cameron. I see in both of them the ways we all would like to be seen, headstrong, determined, confident, and all of the ways we all know we truly are, bull-headed, hesitant, and flawed. In other words, they are so real that you can’t help to relate to them. Your life story may not be the exact same, but we all have our mountains to climb. I cheer for each of you as I did for them, as you take that trail and conquer it. May we all be winners!
The story flow was natural; nothing felt forced or awkward. The characters and the narrative are well-developed. The grammar and editing have been very well done. This is a polished, professional release. Sit back and enjoy your read
Maya’s friend Eli needs his own story; I’m just sayin’. The next book, INTO THE FIRE, is Darren and Vanessa’s story. This should be good! I look forward to reading many more stories from Ms. Wild.
