Dane Kauffmann had always lived his life for others. It was something he had never even thought twice about. That was until one night, he met a green-eyed beauty that flipped his world upside down. She made him want to be selfish for the first time in his life. She had him wanting to put his own happiness before others.
This is the story of one man who must make the ultimate decision… Sacrifice everything and be selfish, or sacrifice himself and continue to be Benevolent.
If there was ever a book that has the message of not living in the past, this is it.
It is told in Dane's pov, which I loved. I don't think the story would have been the same if it were told any other way. You know when you read about these CEO types and they almost always have a fatal flaw? Well, I haven't found Dane's. He is sexy, honorable, loves with everything he has, and always puts those he cares about first-ok,well, this could be an issue.The emotions you feel reading this book will have you all over the map. Leddy did an excellent job at telling the reader just what Dane was going through without making him sound like a complete insensitive ass. I really felt for him. For all of them actually. The characters have been through so much, you just want them to find happiness. Just not at the expense of themselves, which is what Dean struggles with. The message I got from the book was, you have to let go of the past before you can mve forward. Also, you can't make everyone else happy and sacrifice yourself in the process. Sometimes it's ok to put yourself first, in fact, you HAVE to. This is a love story with all the angst you can handle. It really puts things in to perspective. A 4.5 star highly recommended read!

My name is Kendall Carrington—or so I thought.
One night, a routine traffic stop turned the world I thought I knew upside down. I wasn’t who I thought I was. No one was. I had been kidnapped when I was young, and everything I had been told was all a lie. But the lies didn’t end there. If it hadn’t been for Lincoln Hunt, I might not have ever found out the truth.
My real name is Danielle Tucker.
This is my story of pain, betrayal, and finding the true meaning of home.
Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped. She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.
She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females. The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. And to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
