My rating: 4 of 5 stars
All Maisie wants is to get through her days without breaking down, she lost everything is the twister and is barely getting by even though its been two years.

He sees her sadness and as he begins to pull back her layers he sees a future he's determined to have. If only she'll let him in.
Maisie has allot of sadness in her, but as the story unfolds we see as she begins to open up and live life and you get excited for her for every step she takes.
Ryan is a sweetie with a heart of gold, he won't let his ex come in the way of his future and will do whatever it takes to prove to Maisie how much he cares.
This is a story about opening up even after tragedy has struck and about continuing to live. Good short read.
