My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When a woman decides to try and right wrong that was done to a man she has never met she had no idea of the high cost it would have on not only in her life but also his and their families.

Twenty six years ago a man cheats on his wife and a child is the product of that. But the man has high aspiration and a wife and child and does his best to conceal that mistake from the world. That child has paid his whole life for the sins of his parents. After a stint in prison for a crime he didn’t commit he has been trying to make something of this life at his foster father’s auto mechanic business. What he doesn’t know is his life is about to change by a woman who is engaged to his half-brother.

Christine Andrews was different type of heroine. She was raised by wealthy parents and had a privileged life. Just out of college she moved back home not knowing yet what she wanted to do professionally. She took at job at her father’s company and in the interim met and got engaged to her father’s assistant Trent Gallagher. But when she finds a folder at his house about a brother he has never told her about and she hears a bit of history about this brother she cannot believe what her fiancée and his father have done to him. She sets out to meet him not knowing that this is going to change the course of her life and her relationships with everyone in her life.

Christine was so naive to the ugly that people do and Jason had a huge chip on his shoulder from all the wrongs done to him but when these two met it was like the universe finally aligned for them. But it was doomed from the start and Christine is the one that pays the highest price.

Your emotions are on a rollercoaster all throughout this story. Your rooting for the underdogs hoping for that Cinderella ending but life isn’t a always a fairy tale and where Jason is used to this Christine is devastated. But will all those that have wronged Jason finally atone for their sins so the star crossed lovers can finally get their HEA??
