**4 Emotional Roller Coaster True Love Stars**

Knowing that you can make 1 decision and it will completely change your life and the path in which you were on is what happens to Leila.  In love with Garrett and knowing that she was going to spend the rest of her life with him, or so she thought.  She made that one decision, that one choice that changed everything.  After she tells Garrett what she did, knowing it can’t be undone, he slowly starts to pull back and shut down.  Leila is losing him and there is nothing she can do, the damage is already done.  The love they once had is broken and Garrett leaves without a word, until 4 years later he shows back up into her life with his own secret.  Will they be able to forgive the decisions they both made in the past or will they continue to live their separate lives with pieces of their hearts still broken?
This story touched my heart.  It’s raw and will send you on an emotional roller coaster.  I felt Leila’s pain and her lose.  It gave me goose bumps and left tears in my eyes.  I could tell from the first page that their love was something worth fighting for.  It was strong and I had hoped that they would find their way back to each other.  There were times when I wanted to smack Leila upside her head and tell her to go fight, fight for her love, fight for Garrett.  It took me about 3 hours to read this, I couldn’t put it down from the first word to the last sentence I was engrossed with every word written on every page.    Garrett’s passion and love for Leila touched my heart and he held onto it throughout the entire book.  It’s a beautiful story about 1 couple who lost everything and after 4 years of living a life with a gaping hole decided that they deserved their love and they would fight like hell to have it.  
This is the first story I have read from Christa Cervone and if this is the work I get to look forward to than I will be a fan for many years to come.  Can’t wait to read more from this amazing, talented author and see what other stories she puts to paper for us to enjoy.
