***An Amazon Top 100 New Adult & College Romance***

Two years.

It’s been two long years since Ava packed everything and left the life she once knew far behind her seeking a new adventure. All, except for her broken heart.

Once upon a time Ava and Ethan were in love. Their relationship was perfect, and they both planned a future together, filled with promise and hope. It wasn’t until an unwelcomed event storms into their lives, tearing their plans and dreams away; leaving Ethan broken and Ava unable to recover.

Two years later, fate crosses their paths once again but the shadow of their haunted past lingers. Ava has slowly rebuilt her life, finally finding some normalcy in it. On the other hand, Ethan has sorted to releasing his guilt and remorse in questionable ways, but his thoughts never strayed from the memories of Ava.

Will they get a second chance to rewrite their story, or will the pain and rejection be too much for Ava to bear and furthermore forgive?

WOW!! Second chances. Who deserves one in your life? Ethan fights for a second chance with Ava. He broke her heart in the worst way, I was devastated reading the first few chapters of this story. I couldn't understand how someone could love someone so much but yet still walk away. He literally needed to un-break her heart. I felt her pain, everything she had to deal with and not have the one person in the world who she loves the most. Ethan and Ava have known each other since they were children, they were best friends, two souls joining as one. This is a beautiful story showing us true love never dies no matter what you do to forget, move miles away, sleep around, nothing works. when you love someone so deep you can not escape it. You will meet some great characters in this story, I am very excited to read more about these characters, especially Aiden that's Ava's brother, he likes woman on a big scale. I would love Katie that is Ava's best friend to have a happy ever after but it will take some fantastic man to tame Katie. If I could give more stars I would, I loved this story, thank you Fabiola Francisco for another wonderful read.

HASH(0xae263cfc) out of 5 stars Double Standard 27 January 2015
By Just Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Well written but I was disgusted by the double standard. He gets to be what the book called a man whore...but he still loves her. In the meanwhile she stays away from men because she still loves him. That messed up an otherwise entertaining story.

HASH(0xae931630) out of 5 stars A beautiful second chance love story 15 January 2015
By Yvi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was truly excited to be able to read this story. And it didn't disappoint!

This is a wonderful story about forgiveness, the ability to love beyond the hurt and about two people finding their way to each other.

Ava has won the battle against cancer, but lost the love of her life on the way. Devastated, she goes and travels throughout Europe, hoping to loose the shadow that's still haunting her. Now, going back to Chicago, to her own life she hopes that her time away has done enough to heal her broken heart. But life isn't always easy, and most certainly not always giving you what you want. Thrown into a world where Ethan is still a main part, Ava tries to navigate her way into this new life she wants to build in Chicago. But Ethan, no matter the person he used to be, doesn't even think of leaving Ava alone. He has messed up one too many times and will do everything in his power to proof to her just how wrong he was to walk out on her like this.

This story is beautiful to watch. Watching Ava is amazing, simply because of her fight, of her willingness to move on and wanting to live her life the way she wants to. After having survived, getting her life on track is her number one priority. And she doesn't let anyone get her off track. Not even Ethan, who is clearly trying everything to get her to believe him that he changed. She's a strong heroine that I truly admire for what she's been through and what she accomplished on her way to being the person she is in the end. Because while we may never forget, forgiveness is a gift we should always be willing to show to people who deserve it.

Of course I wasn't the biggest fan of Ethan when this story started. I mean, come on, he walked out on her when she was dying of cancer, who does that. But then, the more you think about it, the more you wonder what would you do in a situation like that. Would we be strong enough to stay and watch the person we love die? I don't believe it's as easy as we make it out to be. And yet, still doesn't make me like Ethan because I like to believe that I would stay with the person I deem my soulmate (just imagining that happening is giving me goosebumps). The redeeming thing about Ethan though is that he's fully aware of what he's done and knows that it will take a lot of convincing to make Ava see that he's sorry and that he's changed. His attitude while she was gone clearly isn't helping his case, but at least he's trying. While it might seem a little stalkerish of him to want to be close to her all the time as she's back, in the end he's just fighting for the one he loves.

Once Ava and Ethan reconnect, you see them working through their issues, slowly but steadily getting that trust back together. They have some beautiful moments together that will show you just what it means to have that one person in your life that you would do anything for. And that, no matter how much that person hurt you at some point, is always worth forgiving.

On a side note, I looooooooved the secondary characters. Dan, Katie, Aiden, Jess, all of them made this story a funny story as well, because they bring humor, laughs and the breath from the heartfelt topic in this story, which is much needed.

As this story is told in dual POV as well as in the present and with flashbacks, you really get the whole picture of this story. It's not a heartbreaking story only. In the end, the story itself was light, if you look at what Ava has to go through. Yes, we see the flashbacks with the times when Ava was sick and how everything slowly went downhill, but the main part of the story focuses on the two of them reconnecting, which is why the story isn't as depressing as you might think with a history like that. And I LIKED that. I told Fabiola it made this story so much more enjoyable, simply because the focus isn't on Ava having been sick. Yes, it's ONE topic, but the story does focus on how those two find their way back to each other, and that is a true pleasure to watch.

So if you have a chance, make sure to grab your copy once it goes on sale. It's been a true joy to have been part of Ava's and Ethan's story. And now I CANNOT wait for Aiden!!!!! Bring it on!!!!

HASH(0xae9312a0) out of 5 stars a miss... 12 January 2015
By thirty-five - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Under developed characters, surface plot, and random disjointed flashbacks make up this story. The writing was amateurish, this might be a new author, however I didn't check. There was not much redeemable about someone who abandons the person they love at the worst time, then after a screwing everyone, wants and gets her back. It wasn't believable, the dialogue and secondary characters made it worse. Add the random flashbacks/memories that added nothing to the story and you have one huge miss.

HASH(0xae263f00) out of 5 stars Beautiful story! 19 February 2015
By Heavenly Good Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this story. First 2 chapters made me cry and cursing Ethan. I wasn’t his biggest fan. I even thought that Ava should fall in love with someone new, someone who won’t walk away whenever hardship is thrown their way. But when the story progressed I fell in love with him. I understood his reasoning and to be honest I started wondering if I would not react the same, if something like that happened to me when I was young, stupid and whole life was ahead of me. Of course leaving Ava was his biggest mistake and regret, but he feels it. And is trying his hardest to make up everything to her.

Ava is such a sweetheart. She is kind and is not your typical rich daddy’s daughter. She works hard to fulfil her dreams. One of her dreams was to be forever and ever with Ethan. Her best friend, her lover and her soul mate. Until she was diagnosed with cancer and all her world collapsed. Her dreams were shattered, when the one who made her fight to stay alive, left her. Even though she won the battle with cancer, she has lost him. We meet her in present time when she returns from her 2 years adventure in Europe, where she was sightseeing and gathering knowledge about European Culture. She thinks she was able to move on and forget Ethan, but only one word from him, simple “Hi” made her shiver and caused all feelings, memories and emotions to come back.

The story is beautiful way of showing about second chances and how hard it is on those, who are sick and also the ones that are around people who are slowly dying.

I loved how Fabiola showed Ethan persistence to prove Ava that he has changed and he is no longer that stupid, 21 year old boy, who was afraid. And she beautifully shows the power of forgiveness.

On the other hand, not only main characters are amazingly build. But side characters, Katie, Dan, Jess and Aiden are well developed and strong characters in the story and without them, it would be just another ugly cry book. But thanks to them you have also times when you can’t stop laughing.

Beautiful story and it well deserves 5 stars in my opinion.
