Author: Melissa Toppen

Life is full of many things.
No matter how small, each moment has value.
Then there are the big moments.
The moments that define us.
And the people who shape our very existence.
Abel Collins is that person for me. 
From the very first time our eyes locked, I knew there was something about him. That he was the person that would change everything.
And he did.
But Abel isn’t just any man…
His past is his prison.
His guilt keeps him chained.
His grief defines him.
And now it’s up to me to set him free.
To make him see that life isn’t just about what we’ve lost but what we still stand to gain.
Because it’s not about what came before, but what comes after.

When we met Abel in Ten Hours we got to know and love the caring and swoon-worthy man he truly is when he found love and gave his whole heart and soul to a woman that he knew he wouldn’t have forever. Three years later he is still drowning with grief and guilt, but he knows he needs to try and build a new life and that means moving back to Chicago to be close to his family.

Peyton has her own painful past that she is dealing with. She meets Abel as they are both involved in the same wedding. She knows that Abel is not ready for love and getting involved with him is sure to end in a broken heart but getting her heart to believe what her brain is telling it is much harder than she thought.

This is a beautiful and emotional story about love, healing and second chances. After the devastating loss that Abel has endured he needs to accept that moving forward with his life is not forgetting his first love and that she would want him to live and love and Peyton is the perfect person to do that with.
