Wow I was really excited to read this book to see how Elizabeth and Christian end up after reading the short story of what brought them together in the beginning. In the beginning, Elizabeth tells Christian that she is pregnant and he basically tells her she has to choose it's either him or the baby, and that she can't have them both. But for Elizabeth she doesn't believe in such a thing as getting ride of a baby, and chooses the baby over him. Well five years have now gone by and believe it or not Christian has felt sorry and regretted his horrible decision with Elizabeth every day. Christian now has the career that he always wanted so badly while Elizabeth, is stuck working an everyday job to be able to take care of her little girl, Lizzie. Even though it might not always be that easy, Elizabeth wouldn't have it any other way. That is until Christian shows up wanting to make things right and wanting to be a better person, only to turn Elizabeth's world upside down.
“Elizabeth.” A chill ran down my spine as his voice penetrated my ears, seeping through my body. The sound came like warmth rushing through my veins, leaving a shock of cold as it passed. My head snapped up, meeting his face, his blue eyes intense, emotion pouring from them as he looked from Lizzie to me. It was all I could do to keep from falling to the ground as I felt the world I had built come crashing down around me.
“Christian, no,” I said, snaking around him to give my debit card to the woman. “Elizabeth.” His voice managed to hiss and plead at the same time. “Just let me pay. Please.” I shook my head in stubborn petulance. “I don’t want your money, Christian.” Darkness clouded his expression, and he lowered his voice, inclining his head toward me. “I know, Elizabeth, you never have. You never even asked for what was yours.” Disarmed by the sadness I saw in his eyes, I found myself too shocked to resist any longer. I stepped back and self-consciously tucked my card back into my shorts pocket, terrified at how easily he’d just persuaded me.
I was all excited in the beginning until I became very mad and upset with Christian, forcing Elizabeth to choose like he did, but as time goes on it turned into a great story all the way through to a great ending.
This book was awesome, the characters were perfect and Lizzie is the cutest little thing ever. So five stars for me.
