I had it all.
Breaking into the entertainment business as a teenager wasn’t easy. I spent years of my childhood traveling, auditioning and hoping my big break would come. And when I did, I rose to a level I never imagined.
Elle Tyler: model, singer and actress. I couldn’t go anywhere without security anymore. It was everything I ever wanted and more - fame, fortune and worldwide recognition. At age twenty-four, I was living a dream.
But a single act of violence shattered my fairytale existence. In a matter of seconds, all the goodness in me was ripped to shreds. Overnight, the people around me dropped away, moving on to find the next big thing. I gave up on myself, becoming a woman so dark and forlorn I no longer recognized myself.
But the stranger who saved me that day, Justin Lockhart, never gave up on me. He still saw light through my darkness. And as we grew closer, I started to see it, too. And I also started to see that before that terrible day, maybe I didn’t really have it all. Maybe I was always missing the only thing that really matters.

I'm a big fan of this series, the way the author show us the love and support this family displays for each other as well as the humorous grief the brothers give each other, is what makes this series so appealing and captivating.
This is a book with a bit of angst, romantic flare and a whole lot of love. The writing is raw when it needs to be and definitely realistic. Sometimes life put us in situations that bring out the strength hidden deep inside of us, sometimes life give us an unexpected hero who is ready to show us that the scars we carry on the outside only represent the fire that push us to survive the most difficult times.
