When the barriers finally come down and their true feelings are revealed, will they finally become the couple everyone says they’re destined to be, or will the darkness from Gwen’s past tear them apart forever?

The story of Gwen & Craig’s relationship is one that has lasted 10 years from the first impromptu meeting in a park thanks to their siblings. Since then their friendship from their playground days to college life has gone through sooo much and one that they were able to work out together until that one frat party changes things.
Gwen tends to keep certain things to herself to the point where it started affecting the closeness she has with Craig. His future goals entail baseball in hopes that he can reach his dreams of making it big thanks to the company and ongoing cheering team from his best friend. However, playing the field are not the same when Gwen starts acting differently and pulls away from him and he does not understand why.
“I’ve loved you for ten years, and nothing will ever change that.”
I enjoy this 4 stars reading about long-term friendships and how over time things happen and people grow up and whether to see if time can truly test them. Needless to say in Gwen and Craig’s story…years have past and they both have feelings for more with one another but something is holding them back. Their story is more than just the typical breaking of their friendship if things turn bad it is that if walls are not broken down it can be driven to despair. With out revealing anything I will note that some scenes can affect the faint of heart, which in turn will either make or break the long-term friendship. Pick up a copy today and check out the emotional feels 10 years can bring about.
