After Polly ends her relationship with the father of her young son, Louis, she is determined to move on. All she wants is to focus on her job, her friends and to be a good mum. No more looking over her shoulder. No more complications…
Then Polly meets Ben.
Ben is guardian of his niece, Emily. They become close, with Polly teaching Ben how to plait Emily’s hair, and Ben playing football with Louis. Their friendship is unexpected. Polly’s never been happier.
But when Louis’s dad reappears in their life, all Polly’s mistakes come back to haunt her and her resolve weakens when he swears he has changed.
Will she give herself a second chance to love?
Thank you to Sharon a fellow book blogger who sent me this in exchange for a book I sent her .
I have not read any of Alice’s books before but had heard good things about this book .
The blurb already had me hooked and knew I would relate in some ways .However I could have been reading my own thoughts and feelings in many parts of this book .
Alice deals with many sensitive subjects in this book ,2 that are close to my heart addiction and abusive relationship .She writes in such a heartwarming genuine way .Once I had the time I flew through this book .
I loved Ben and the positive effects he has on Polly and the new adventures they have together to erase their troubled past and addictions .
Alice managed to capture the raw emotions that are felt in these situations .
A beautiful and touching read with a added unexpected twist .
I look forward to reading many more from this author .
