Running away was Zoe Sinclair’s answer to her problems…
Zoe has missed too much since she fled home ten years ago. Now it is finally time to go back. And with her friend’s birthday party days away, it is the perfect opportunity. On her way into town, her car breaks down, and then she’s attacked and left for dead among the dirt and dust on the roadside.
Spencer McLaren never left home, but his heart did. In the same moment Zoe fled…
Spencer had always been in Zoe’s life. Every time she’d needed him, he’d been there, arms open wide. When he spots a broken and battered Zoe stumbling along the side of the road, he can’t help but swoop in and rescue her. He rushes her to the hospital, but when she’s released, he can’t seem to let her go. Not again.
Physically, Zoe feels fine. Emotionally, her head and her heart are a disaster…
Spencer takes Zoe into his home and assigns himself the task of guardian and nurse. But her return puts strain on Spencer’s relationship with his brother, who isn’t happy to see Spencer falling for the girl who broke his heart again. Zoe knows she should leave, but her attacker is still out there, and being with Spencer is the only place she feels safe. She wants to make up for the pain she caused him in the past, but the attack has left her so broken and scared.
Despite Zoe’s hesitations and constant battle to keep her emotions in check, Spencer is determined to keep her safe and make her never regret finally…

Rebecca, one of four kids to her parents who are both primary school teachers, was born in Wollongong on the south coast of Australia before moving to the country with her family.
After a few years of embracing all that country life had to offer, the family relocated to Port Macquarie with its white sand beaches. After a brief period enjoying the sun and the surf they finally settled in Canberra where Rebecca still lives today. But all through her childhood a notepad and a book where never far away.
These days Rebecca is an avid reader, and when she isn’t buried in a book or cheering on her beloved football team she’s spending time with her husband Robert and their overly spoiled dog Levi.
This was a good book and my first from Rebecca Barber. I feel like not knowing what Zoe left originally kind of clouded this book to me. I kept waiting on some big mystery reveal and it never happened. I dislike unanswered questions in a book. So that is really my only complaint with this book but I feel it’s a big one. It impacted the story so much since this is what broke Spencer.
I did have a hard time sticking with this book. I’m really not sure why. Barber is great with her words and Spencer is a fantastic love interest. But I’m so happy I stuck it out. The ending will come as a complete shock and it was one worth sticking around for....it certainly broke my heart.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
