When there’s nothing left to lose, will you turn to the one person who can save you? A dozen years ago, they were high-school sweethearts, until life took them in different directions. Marine Mike Lindstrom lived and breathed the Corps until an IED ended his career and took away the most precious thing in his life. Emotionally and physically broken, he’s come home to the small Maine town of Jackson Falls to heal. But Mikey’s not the man he once was. Angry, bitter, and grieving, he’s adrift, lost in a sea of anxiety, nightmares, and well-meaning family. He's as broken as Humpty-Dumpty, and nobody can put him back together. Then Paige MacKenzie walks back into his life. Rock-and-roll royalty, Paige was recently dumped and publicly humiliated by her fiancé. She’s come home to lick her wounds and wait for the media frenzy to die down before she returns to L.A. to finish her next album. The first person she runs into is the man she almost married at seventeen. The last she’d heard, Mikey Lindstrom was halfway around the globe, saving the world. They haven’t spoken in twelve years. Until now, that was just fine by her. So why does it feel like Mikey’s drowning, and she’s the only one who can save him?

    I loved this story (recommended by a friend and my first time reading Laurie Breton). Mikey and Paige are perfect together. Mikey is an exquisitely complex wounded hero, an honorable, tough and tender former Marine filled with too much pain and sorrow. There’s a great cast of secondary characters too. And the way music and bands/musicians are interwoven through the story is lovely. I was delighted with the character of Gunther, a Vietnam veteran, and his old record collection, which included som I loved this story (recommended by a friend and my first time reading Laurie Breton).

An awesome and very satisfying read!

    I loved the fact that Paige's rock-star status was just an afterthought when compared to the complex characterizations of just about everyone. I loved how much time the main characters spent simply being with each other before they even admitted that they wanted to be together. Everything felt thoughtful and messy and loving and real.

    Laurie does it again. I could not wait to read Mikey and Paige's story and Ms. Breton did not disappoint. I love the angst that is always present in her storytelling, and the perfect placement of the love story as it fell into place. The chemistry between the two characters was ever present and I can not wait to read more about them. Five stars

Please make this must read a beginning to many more stories of the next generation of Jackson Falls. After-all the first generation of Jackson Falls had me glued to the pages of their lives . Great job Laurie Breton. Thank you for the giving us more MacKenzie's !!! Never enough Casey and Rob !!!

    Brilliant and satisfying. I love a good series and the jackson falls series was great. I like a romance with a good story to get into and this was that. The characters were well defined and interesting, and the topics well explored. The only down side is there was perhaps a little bit too much tragedy. Still, I'm hoping there will be more because I can't get enough of the characters.

    Couldn't put it down All the faithful Jackson Falls reader's waited a long time for this story. It did not disappoint. I have read ever one of Laurie Breton's books and enjoyed them all. This book could stand alone, but I would recommend reading them in order. I hope the "Jackson Falls Book 1" means more to follow. I eagerly anticipate the next book.

    Worth the wait!! I was so excited to go back to Jackson Falls with Paige & Mikey's story! Laurie Breton nailed it, once again, by taking us on Paige & Mikey's journey, while reconnecting with their families. I'll be waiting (impatiently) for the next book in the Beyond Jackson Falls series! Worth the wait!! I was so excited to go back to Jackson Falls with Paige & Mikey's story!

    Another great read. This book was a little different from what I normally read but I have read her other books and decided to take a chance on it and I really liked it.👍 👍 👍 I won't give any spoilers but get that tissue box ready, you will need it and it's all worth it. ☺ Thanks again for the great read. I hope there will be more in this series.

    This was my first Laurie Breton book and it was a very enjoyable one. The story itself was beautiful and I loved the characters and chemistry between them. I did find it a bit long winded at times but that is my only criticism. I'd recommend it and I'll definitely read this author's work again.

    Liked it Interesting young love novel. Well developed characters, storyline, nothing to complain about. A new author for me, whom I will be checking out in the future. Read It in about 6.5 hours. Good book for the weekend

    Couldn't stop reading! As with the other Jackson Falls books it is sad when the book ends! I always check our Laurie Breton to see if there is a new addition to the series. Looking forward to another Paige & Mikey book or a book about the escapades of their teenage sisters... Couldn't stop reading! As with the other Jackson Falls books it is sad when the book ends!

    God, I love the Jackson Falls books. Every time I read one, I'm amazed at how (and I mean this in the best sense possible) human the characters are. I feel like I know them, or could run into one of them at the gas station down the street. They all have passions and problems of their own, taste in music I can appreciate ;-), likes and dislikes, and flaws I think anyone can relate to. They're wonderfully three-dimensional. A delight to read. And frankly, they're a blessed relief from the cardboar God, I love the Jackson Falls books.

I fell in love with Mikey and Paige in the same moment they did and was heartbroken when the Jackson Falls series ended with them so far away from one another. Thank you, Laurie Breton, for bringing them back. This book is lovely and more than does them justice. I sincerely hope to see more of them and the other characters we've grown to love in future installments.
