Product Description

**Standalone Contemporary Romance**

He found me in blood and tears.
I stayed with him through darkness and fire.

We loved each other in the moment between innocence and bitter truth.
We were the kids easily ignored, who grew into adults we hardly knew.

We weren’t meant to last forever. And we didn’t.

He ran away.
I tried to move on.

Yet I never stopped thinking about the boy who had fought to keep me alive in a world that would have swallowed me whole. He was the past that I buried, but never forgot.

Until the day I found him again, years after believing I had lost him forever.

And in cold, resentful eyes, I saw the heart of the man who had been everything when I had nothing at all. So I vowed to hold onto the second chance that was stolen from the children we had been.

Sometimes fate is ugly. Life can be twisted.
And who we are can be ruined by who we once were.

For two people who had survived so much, we would have to learn how to hold on before we were forced to let go.

**trigger warning- contains mature themes that are intense and imply abuse, though are not graphic**

5.0 out of 5 stars My emotions are still all over the place. It took me hours to write this review I’m sure I won’t be able to give it justice. 18 February 2016
By Ana Rente - Published on Amazon.com

---Read and reviewed for The Bookery Review---
ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

If you could take a look at me right now, while I’m writing this review, you would see me crying. Since the beginning and throughout the whole book, I sobbed like a baby.
A. Meredith Walters has a manner with words and she didn’t fail this time again.
I had a feeling this was going to be a heavy reading; full with angst and love. I was not wrong. If anything, I underestimated the power of A. Meredith Walters for this kind of stories.
It only took me to read the blurb and then the first chapter to realize that once I started, I wasn’t going to be able to put it down.
This is a story about two young teenagers. Yoss is an eighteen year old boy who lives in the streets for far too long. He meets Imi accidentally (or not) when she runs away from home at sixteen years old. From that moment on, he becomes her protector. And she becomes his savior.
Together, they are inseparable. Until one day soon… Life goes on and after fifteen years, they reunited under very bad circumstances … again.
The story is told in two distinct time frames (fifteen years ago and present day) and from Imi’s POV. But in the end you get a glance on Yoss’s POV. And, oh boy, I felt like someone was ripping my heart out of my chest. I curved like a ball before I started the epilogue. It was too much to bare!
It’s not an easy story. If you’re looking for a funny and light reading, this book is not for you. This book is so intense that I had to stop sometimes, put myself together and then go on. It deals with sensitive subjects. A. Meredith Walters did it with perfection. Sometimes I see warnings about explicit scenes. Well, this book is not explicit. Doesn’t have to be. Because you can see and feel everything.
The characters are so complex and yet so well developed. We have the chance to meet Yoss, the boy, fighting for a future and Yoss, the man, somehow defeated and with no hope for a future.
And Imi, the stubborn young girl with no hope whatsoever, now a woman fighting for a future, fighting for Yoss.
I felt as if after fifteen years the roles have changed. Now they will have to challenge fate in order to stay together. Imi will have to decide if she wants to stay and fight or just let go. The story is heart wrenching. Brutal even.
I would not say this is a second chance at love. Not in their case. This is the only chance. Life had other plans though.
The cover is fantastic.
I found myself reading, ending a chapter and saying: “Ok, just one more”. And so on and so on. I was reading what happened fifteen years ago but then I felt compelled to go and see what was going on now.
I quickly became addicted to Yoss & Imi’s story. Each chapter is an episode you don’t want to miss.
As I was approaching the end, I knew things were going to get worse.
When I reached it, my heart was shred into tiny little pieces and I didn’t know what to do next. I released a breath I didn’t know I was holding and hugged my Kindle, next to my heart because that’s I wanted to do with the characters, I guess. Hug them!
My emotions are still all over the place. It took me hours to write this review because I’m sure I won’t be able to give it justice.
I want to write more. I want to say more. But I have no words right now. I’m still overwhelmed by all the events.
Friendship.
Sadness.
Companionship.
Fear.
Hope.
Love.
Angst.
You have all this in Yoss & Imi’s story. I guess life was too short for a love like this.

I highly recommend this book. But I must warn you: get a bunch of tissues before. You’ll certainly need them!
I guess I’m a lucky lady. Thank you A. Meredith Walters and The Bookery review for giving me the honor of reading this ARC.
I give it 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 Amazing Stars... A Phenomenal Reading Experience! 19 February 2016
By shellbelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There are some novels that are in a class by themselves. One Day Soon by A. Meredith Walters is one of those books. It is by far one of the best novels I have ever read. It was more than a fictional story. It was more than an epic romance. It was a story that opened up the emotional vault and gave the readers a very real story. A story that was beautiful and brutal. A story where hope and hopelessness are just mere words that can change within a moments notice. A story that portrayed the true meaning of love and giving of the heart. It’s an ugly story that has a beautiful message. Love is hope and without hope life is just an empty vessel.

One Day Soon consumed me. I could not pull myself away from this story. While reading it I couldn’t breath and found myself drowning in tears. The emotional ups and downs, twists and turns, and moments of truth made this book more than a fictional story or epic romance. It was a thought provoking eye opener making me aware of some of the injustices of the world. When I finished this book it left an impression on my soul.

I have sat down several times and tried to write a review for One Day Soon. Each time I found I didn’t have the adequate words to do justice for this novel. I don’t want to give away spoilers because this is a book that every reader needs to experience on a personal level. This novel can appeal to readers of all genres and of all ages. Although it is brutally graphic, it is brutally honest. It gives the reader a very vivid picture of Yoss and Imi’s lives. It takes the reader on an emotional journey as these two teenagers try to survive their lives. As they journey through the different phases of life, neither one is untouched by their time together. It’s not about the heartbreak from a young immature relationship that leaves a multitude of regrets and what ifs. It’s about losing the other half of your soul because life reared it’s ugly head and shredded the map. Trying to get back on course and navigate through each crossroad to reach the final destination seems impossible because you feel hopelessly lost. When you finally reach the final destination, you find that you are not the same person that began the journey. The only thing that remained the same was the truth in their souls. This is Yoss and Imi’s story.

The story is written from Imogin Connor’s POV, past and present. Each passage is delivered with precision that draws the readers into Yoss and Imi’s lives. The reader gets to experience the cruel, turbulent life that they find themselves in during their teenage years. Their lives and means of survival become intertwined into more than just physical actions. They become dependent on one another on the deepest level. They are beginning to build their hopes and dreams around one another even though they are in a hopeless situation. One Day Soon takes on a whole new meaning for them, giving them hope until it doesn’t. One Day Soon becomes the very thing that tears them apart. One Day Soon takes on another whole new meaning in their present lives. One Day Soon is more than their hopes and dreams. It’s the defining moment in their lives.

As Yoss and Imi’s story begins to evolve the reader is introduced to a cast of characters that validate their lives. Each character adds a significant piece to their story .The good, the bad, and the in between, their place in Yoss and Imi’s lives helps mold them into the adults they are now. Each character leaves a mark on their souls.

As I finished this book the first thing I wanted to do was hug my teenagers and tell them that I SEE THEM, I LOVE THEM, and NEVER LOSE HOPE. I looked at world beyond my front door with a very different view. I won’t turn a blind eye on some of the injustices I see on street corners. I now see that it could easily be one of my children, their friends, or schoolmates in the same situation. My door will always be open for them.

A. Meredith Walters delivered a profound story of life, love, and hope. The love Imi and Yoss shared was beyond epic. Their journey was tough and A. Meredith Walters did not dilute it or sugarcoat it. She delivered an honest and vivid picture of their lives. She delivered a story that is beyond memorable. It is epic!

As I read over this review, I once again wanted to trash it and start over. I then realized I will never find the right words, the perfect description, or adequate thoughts to praise One Day Soon by A. Meredith Walters. I am not a writer, I am a reader that was lucky enough to experience this profound story.

Read One Day Soon by A. Meredith Walters.

By 1987 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A Meredith Walters can pen a story. I was so captivated by Yoss and Imi that I couldn’t stop reading. Imi runs away from home and Yoss who is homeless steps in to save her from trouble and keeps her safe. It is with Yoss that she meets his street family. Family not built on blood but loyalty. The things that have happened to these kids and what they do to stay alive will crack your heart open, more so, because these things really do happen on our streets.
Imi and Yoss’s story is told in alternating past and present. I am not a fan of alternating POV’s and normally don’t like them at all. These were very well done. It enriched the story and needed to be told that way so you could feel all the emotion, shame, and pain and understand where they are coming from.
The character development and storytelling is brilliant. I do think Imi's excuse for deciding to be homeless was petty. I still loved the story.
The angst, the emotions and the heart pounding of this book was worth every single hour I ignored my life. This was the first time I have read a book by this author and can’t wait to read more. She writes human emotion with such truth and pure reality. Grab some tissues and a nice quiet spot. You’ll need it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 18 February 2016
By Diane Plourde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"One Day Soon"

99% of the time I read the epilogue halfway through the book. Why? It fuels my anticipation about a story. This one was different even though I was tempted to, believe me but I resisted because if you read the acknowledgments you'll know why I'm saying this (I'm bragging). I knew a little bit about this story that Meredith was working on. I wanted to experience for a change not knowing the end. So I stayed glued to my kindle way past my bedtime. Let me tell you, this is one of the best stories I've ever read so far. A skillfully gifted writer like Meredith is my sole reason why I love to read so much and praise great authors. This story went above and beyond my expectations. It goes way above 5 stars, more like 10.

" I promise"

This is a beautiful, compelling and inspiring journey that stole my heart. I couldn't truly understand pure unconditional love until I read this story. It grabbed my undivided attention from the very first page to very last one, even hours after I was done reading because I get to write a review, hopefully worthy of this amazing story.

"We sobbed"
"We laughed"
"We promised"
"We fell apart"

I've pretty much read everything that Meredith has written so far and I keep telling myself every time that it's her best one yet but she always surpasses my expectations. The author was invested and prepared with her researches in order to deliver one of the most memorable stories yet.

" I won't leave you, Imi, not ever. You and me, we're definite. I don't have anything if I don't have you. You have to believe that"

I always keep my reviews spoiler free because I don't want to ruin this amazing journey and experience, a reader gets while reading a great story.

" One Day Soon"

It involves an homeless boy named Yoss, a homeless girl named Imi that relied on him for survival. Flash forward 15 years of separation, now Yoss needs Imi. The story goes from the present to the past. It's the story of two lost souls who found love and compassion even in darkness. Their love story is intense and beautiful. That's all I'm going to say about the blurb. Trust me you don't want me to say more, it needs to be experienced at its fullest.

"Tell me a story Imi"

It's not just another romantic, steamy novel. It's so much more than that. It's about respect, helping each other in a time of need without expecting anything in return. People watching out for each other with selfless acts. This story is unique, sweet, gripping and raw. It's one of my best roller coaster ride of emotions I've had the pleasure of experiencing. This story broke my heart over and over again but to be put back together in order to leave me smiling every time. Even writing this review, I can't stop myself from being emotional. It can be heartbreaking as well as heartwarming.

" One day soon"

I've thought constantly about this story. I guess it's called a book hangover. The words, the storyline, the characters and the plot were seamless. Even if the story was told in Imi's POV, I felt Yoss's pain, anguish, sadness and happiness. I'm a huge Meredith fan because her stories have heart and compassion. It's fiction but her stories deal with real life issues that just get to me. The author grabbed me and I had no choice but to become emotionally invested in the story and especially the characters. She taps in to human emotions and feelings so profoundly. Her characters are flawed, broken with real life issues which makes her writing matchless.

"I promise"

I admire how Meredith insinuated events that happened on the streets in order to survive. Kind of reading between the lines. I don't think I could've stomached some descriptive details of some of these tragic events that occurred.

" One Day Soon"

This is a standalone told in Imi's POV with one from Yoss at the end. It as an HEA, but the prologue had me at the edge of my seat. If someone's ask me for a recommendation, without hesitating I will recommend One Day Soon by A. Meredith Walters. All her previous books are worth the readers time and money. Trust me they are all good. I'm anxious to see what comes next for this author because I will be at the forefront of her next book.

P.S. Have plenty of Kleenex handy.

5.0 out of 5 stars I.LOVED.THIS.BOOK! GET.THIS.BOOK!!! Like NOW! 27 March 2016
By Book Nerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
There comes a time when you will read a book that will pull out of you every emotion that you have to share. THIS book is one of them, THIS book is such a…..complex book, but in a good way. The title of this book should be “Beautiful Heartbreak” because that is exactly what happens. This book breaks your heart but does it so beautifully and so subtlety that you’re ok with it being broken. Your heart immediately gets taken by Yoss. Yoss is everything that you like to read about in books. Yoss is also the same character that makes you wish you could reach into a book, and hug a character. Especially one that you instantly fall in love with because Yoss is written that well.

Imi, she is well written but she isn’t the star of this book even though we spend all of our time with her. Imi’s reason for being homeless isn’t a good enough reason to me, and I felt that her reasoning should have been a better one. However with that aside her reason for staying homeless after meeting Yoss IS an understandable one. Seeing Yoss through Imi’s eyes is just a wonderful way to see someone, and I loved every second of it. To me Yoss alone is enough of a reason for me to even be homeless too! If I were in Imi’s shoes. The author did a wonderful job of telling Imogene and Yoss’ story.

This book, though fictional was told in a very realistic way that, and it didn’t give you that too fiction for fiction aspect. This author showed us two broken kids who lived in nothing but ugliness, that were able to find beauty in a place where there was none. This book gave me hope and then slowly dripped it from me. My heart was destroyed and my energy was depleted. So much so that I was reading to simply end the book. Because the author had ruined my faith and obliterated my hope that there would be a happy ending and then………sorry but you have to read the book to find out the rest. Lol my overall opinion is get this book because it was TOTALLY worth the money and the time. This book was awesome all the way until the end!
