He likes whiskey and wild women
She likes Ben & Jerry’s
He’s about to get kicked out of his own band
She ate her way off the Miss America pageant circuit
What could these two possibly have in common?
A lot of unresolved issues
A whole bunch of shared lifetimes
And a love that is never-ending
As bad boy rocker, Jesse Winslow, and former pageant queen, Kylie Martin, each fight the demons screwing up their lives, the one person who holds the key to healing their ills and reuniting two souls that have searched for one another, lifetime after lifetime, is the only one who knows the whole truth.
And keeping that truth from them may just be in preeminent psychiatrist Dr. Claire Stoddard’s best interests.
Claire has committed the ultimate sin in the medical world. She’s fallen for the one man she’s forbidden to love.
Her patient, Jesse Winslow.
And she’s not about to lose him to Kylie Martin… Again.

I finished this book in the early hours of the morning and I don’t have enough words to describe how I felt. At one point did I feel like messaging the author, get down on my knees and beg her to “Please, please, please for the love of mercy, give Kylie and Jesse a break!”
This is probably one of the most difficult reviews I have to write only because there are not a lot of details I can share as I don’t want to give away any spoilers. This book is a standalone contemporary romance (with an unusual twist) about two people who both needed help and found each other. Written in alternating “past” and present scenarios Kylie is a former beauty queen who became a plus size princess and Jesse is a rock star on a downward slope to hell. They are both patients of Dr. Claire Stoddard, who plays a big part in their healing and is the catalyst to the couple’s future happiness. What I like about the author is that she also created Kylie as a strong, beautiful and independent woman who tackles weight issues that a lot of us can relate to. And Jesse, oh how I would love to have my own Jesse!
“I have let you into a place so deep, that it is dangerous. It is dangerous to feel what I feel. And I know that you know that. No one else is getting to that place besides you. And there’s only room for you as long as you choose to remain there.”
Serendipity, fate, destiny or whatever you call it Kylie and Jesse were always meant to be together. This book is not only about meeting your soulmate and finding “the one”. When you read their story, you not only get romance but also a feeling of empowerment. Jesse and Kylie’s story elicits a myriad of emotions: everlasting love, despair, heartbreak and hope. Will they finally get their happily ever after? I would have given the book five stars but there is one question which I think should have been addressed regarding Claire’s actions. Highly recommended but I would suggest a box of tissues by your side.
‘But right now, all I’ve got are memories trapped in time
Of that moment when you were still mine
I’ll keep reaching and reaching and reaching
To grab hold of our love on the edge of time.’
About the Author
I must’ve been 5 or 6 when I started writing “stories”. I would write them and hide them.
Not wanting anyone to see my “secret” thoughts. I needed to write – even back then. Now I’m just not hiding them anymore. Is that a sign of maturity? Nah…
Writer, photographer, insatiable wanderluster, edge-player, foodie, music addict, pop culture fanatic, animal lover, warrior for the rights of people and planet, and avid cusser (am a Native New Yorker, so very little offends me…and if I am offended, it must be pretty freaking bad..like bad grammar!)
I am a big believer in signs and if we keep ourselves open, there are guideposts all along the way. Stay humble. Be true. Be you.
Life is not a dress rehearsal…
