Contemporary Inspirational Romance
Isabel Nichols’s life changed in more ways than one through the years.
As a young child, she experienced a loss that devastated her. It wasn’t until
she was an adult that the universe around her shattered. In a twenty-four-hour
time frame, she lost what she’d thought was her world. What followed was a
year of mourning, a year of grieving, a year of darkness. Now, there’s one man
who can show her the light.
Dakota Jackson left his life behind on a whim, moving to a beach cottage away
from the big city where he grew up. He sees through Izzie’s clouds as he gets to
know her, with the drive to be everything that she’s ever needed. The only problem
is, Dakota holds the key to a secret that could ruin both of their hopes and dreams.
Passion isn’t always enough to heal a broken heart; love isn’t always enough to guide
you through the darkness.
This is about two souls that were meant to be together from the day they were born.
Two people who have to figure out a way to look past the memories. It’s the now;
it’s living your life as you’re meant to, loving the one your heart craves. It’s about
letting go of the grieving, learning to be who you are, and accepting life for what it
Can love cure all things despite its hardships?



I loved this story, and I loved how AM Willard built up the relationship between Izzie and Dakota.
Izzie has been slowly rebuilding her life after her father dies and her husband left her on the very same day. I instantly hated Peter for doing that to her, and when he made an appearance later in the book I wanted to punch him. However, the beach house next to her has been empty for a while and when a new neighbour moves in we meet Dakota.
From the get go I loved him, and he is intent on winning Izzie over, but she has built up so many walls after being hurt by Peter that he definitely has his work cut out for him.
This book will make you laugh and cry, and you will love the characters.

The glass shatters around my feet and a few pieces actually cut my skin.
“Shit. Shit. Shit!” I yell.
“Don’t move; you’ll cut yourself even more.”
In a flash, I’m lifted from the floor and placed onto the counter.
Dakota raised me like it was nothing, and is now looking around for the
broom and dustpan.
“Pantry,” I say and point to the door.
“I’m sorry for startling you; I didn’t mean to scare you. Are you always
this jumpy?” he asks as he stops what he’s doing to glance at me.
“Yes, when I have a strange man in my kitchen that I don’t know is behind
me, I tend to be a little jumpy,” I say with a hint of sarcasm.
“I’m not a stranger, you know. Just a guy that moved in next door and is
trying to get to know the neighbor.”
“Are you done yet? I’ve got work to do.”
“Almost, but you need to let me clean the cuts on your foot first, then you
can go back to work.”
“I’ll clean them. I don’t need anyone to take care of me. Got it?”
“Oh, I’m sure you can take care of yourself, but I think you should let me
take care of you. You know, it’s not a bad thing to let people in.”
God, that smirk he always gives me … it’s about to drive me nuts. Jumping
down from the counter, I decide to do this myself. This is a conversation that
needs to be avoided. In the bathroom, I lock the door behind me and locate the
peroxide and a bandage. I hike my foot up on the side of the tub and dab the
cotton ball onto the small cut. My breath hitches from the sting. Satisfied that
they’re clean enough, everything goes back up and I head back out.
