Hope this letter finds you well. Fuck, what has it been? Nine years? Ten? I guess it would be about nine since that’s how old our daughter is. She found me, Liv. She wants to meet us—both of us. I thought we should make the decision together. I can come to you or you can come home. I know your momma misses you something fierce. Let me know what you decide.
It's been ten years since I left. Turned my back on my home, my family, and him. I wasn't strong enough to salvage what was left after we gave her up. I couldn't bear to see the look of disappointment and blame in his eyes.
I should've fought harder for her; for us. Now, all the feelings I spent ten years burying are beginning to resurface from one letter; one single piece of paper. I'm not sure I have it in me to face my past but I know I can't turn my back on her again; not when I gave up so easily the first time.

Although Nikki is not a debut author however she is new to me and I don't think I could have picked a better one to start with. You couldn't help but feel the emotion in this story. We get both Lincoln and Liv's perspective of their love story and how it all fell apart. I felt such empathy for Liv and why she made the decisions she did. Lincoln is a young man who's made mistakes but when he steps up to fix them he's all in.
This was a story that made me laugh, smile and cry however ultimately I finished the book with a sense of hope and happiness.
