Title: Yesterday’s Tomorrows
Author: M.E. Montgomery
If growing up in her home wasn’t enough to shatter Madelyn Stone’s illusions of happily ever after, then serving several years behind bars certainly was. Her crime? Believing in family and growing up on the wrong side of the tracks. She’s learned the hard way that there is no such thing as a prince who’ll ride in and save the day, and she pledges never to trust anyone again. Never.
Between a career in the Marines and plans to marry his childhood sweetheart, Holten Andrews had his future all mapped out…until life took an unexpected, heart-ripping turn. Now he’s moved on with a new career in law, as well as vowing to confine women to one of three categories: family, professional, and f*ckable. No blurring the lines. Ever.
Love is the last thing on Maddy’s mind as she attempts to forge a new path out of the wreckage of her life. Holt’s sense of loyalty is rocked when he’s blindsided by feelings for a woman he would normally condemn. When revelations from Maddy’s past threaten her safety, Maddy has to put her faith in Holt, while Holt fights not to lose the one woman who’s blurred all of his lines. Every choice they make will figure into whether or not they can make yesterday’s dreams still come true tomorrow.
This is her first time posting and reviewing for The Book Reading Gals and we are excited to have her! Welcome Andrea!
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it won’t be the last.
I was immediately drawn in to this story. It’s a story about heartache, healing, trust, forgiveness, self-discovery, and learning to love. There was an unexpected element of suspense that kept me at the edge of my seat. Both Maddy and Holt have had a tough life, and had many obstacles to overcome in order to trust and open their hearts. This was not just a romance. There are twists and turns that keep you guessing. It’s heartfelt and emotional. There are moments that will have your heart breaking for the characters and others that will have you smiling so big.
Overall this was a fantastic story about healing, love, and second chances.
