Sometimes in life we can’t help who we fall in love with, no matter how hard we try. No matter what type of person they make us become. Wren Porter knew that first hand. Her best friend’s brother, Dane Evans’ was the only guy she’d ever had eyes for. He was, “The One.” The one she was supposed to marry someday. To grow old with, but it was hard to love someone that would never love her back.
After revealing to Dane that their one-night-stand had resulted in a pregnancy, she knew that the baby would be her only real link to the boy she loved. After tragedy strikes, Wren was left feeling like her heart would be broken forever. But hearts were made to mend, and people were made to love. And when an unexpected person comes into her life, it forces her to feel, something she hasn’t done in a long time. She thought it was too soon, and that she wasn’t ready. What she didn’t know was that love doesn’t come when you expect it or when you’re ready. It came crashing in at the craziest of times, and when you thought you’d never be able to love again.
Would she ever fully recover from the boy that would forever cause her heartbreak? Because the green-eyed boy wanted her whole heart and nothing less?
It’s time to stop running, stop hiding, and start learning where the true escape lies. Everyone will face heartbreak, but not everyone will find love.

This book was very hard to listen to at the beginning because of the topic it is heart breaking. Wren is pregnant but is not with the baby's father, Dane. She has had a crush on him for years but bad boy Dane has never seen her as anything more than his sisters friend until a drunken night. Wren approaches Dane about the pregnancy and he acts like he doesn't have any responsibility to Wren or the baby. Dane ends up dying from an overdose and the story really gets interesting. This is a tale of love, loss, finding oneself and rediscovering a true love. It was beautifully written, I will say though that sometimes I was sad at how immature Wren seemed to be as she was hung up on this kid crush and felt the need to be faithful to Dane even after he passed away. The narrator Aundrea does a great job with this novel switching between the characters with changes in her voice for the males and females. I didn't feel like she was reading the story but getting into each character and their feelings.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
