The Impact Tristan hit rock bottom, and no one felt the impact harder than Danika. She was forced to see, in the most brutal of ways, that love does not conquer all. Bruised, bloody, and broken, she had to walk away. The Aftermath Picking up the pieces of your life after a tragedy is a daunting prospect, and that´s considering you still own all of the pieces. But what if you don´t? What if someone else owns those pieces, and those pieces are a part of your soul? You dig deep and work with what you´ve got. That´s what Danika told herself and believed, every single day, for years. Tristan and Danika´s love had failed every test that life had thrown at them. She couldn´t forget that, not for one second. And if those tests had been overly harsh, well, she wasn´t one to wallow in self-pity. The failure was the thing she had to focus on. The failure was the lesson. She had no intention of working so hard to make it out of hell without learning that lesson well. The Reunion Over six years after the night that changed everything, Danika finds herself forced to spend the weekend constantly in Tristan´s company, as they attend the wedding of two of their dearest friends. It´s been long enough that she feels they can be friendly again without it destroying her peace of mind, but just a small amount of time in his presence has her remembering something she had forced herself to forget: There´d been a reason she´d gone through hell with this man, for this man, some true good to precede the bad. She shocks herself by quickly giving in to a hunger that she never imagined could still consume her. Even the best intentioned denial has a breaking point. This book is intended for readers 18 and up. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Ruen, Sarah Naughton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/018701/bk_acx0_018701_sample.mp3.
