What a wonderful story about Heather and Channing. Loved the whole story of their lives together from 1st grade to the present. I loved them in the Fallen Crest series, and how they got their happily ever after. What a wonderful happy ever after it was. The epilogue with Maddy Kade and Max, was heart warming. Loved, loved, loved it.
This would be one of my favourites of tijan I reckon,I loved seeing and hearing about Sam,mason,Logan and so many more,getting the full story from when heather and Channing started,to where they are now was awesome
I have been waiting for Heather and Channing’s book and it didn’t disappoint. I like how we see into the past to their very first encounter and over the years, it sets the relationship dynamic between the two.
We first meet channing and heather in Crew. Crew is channing sisters Bren story so if you haven’t read that one yet I suggest you do.
This story was magnificent, it will hold your attention from the beginning and you just absorb everything in this book. It’s definitely a page turner.
Channing and Heather story flows from past to present. These two meet each other when they are in 1st grade, since then they haven’t been able to shake each other. This is where their love story really begins.
Heather and Channing have been through many hurdles, changes to their lifestyles and growing. Their relationship has went through many ups and downs. It wasn’t perfect far from it really. These two were like magnets, they were pulled to one another. Their story is wholeheartedly consuming, deep and a once of a lifetime love story.
I fell in love with their story from the moment it started. It starts off with flashbacks of them having a hilarious, banter friendship and something blossoming into something stronger.
Channing has a lot going on in his life with his crew and becoming a parent figure for his sister. This unfortunately leaves heather being last.
The question is when is it time to give up? You either need to sacrifice, make a change and accept or make the hardest decision and walk away from the boy you grew up with.

Yet again Tijan tugs at our heartstrings and pulls us into another world of heartache, raw love, and the real brutal existence of her characters. I loved Heather Jax the moment she was introduced in the Fallen Crest series. She was tough, loyal, sassy as all hell with that hint of vulnerability, and I wanted her story.
Well, I got it.
Through the Fallen Crest series, I struggled with the "on-again, off-again" relationship she had with Channing. I couldn't understand why a woman as strong and tough as Heather would put up with not being the number one thing in her man's life.
Well, Tijan certainly told me!
