There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.
Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.
Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.
Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.
Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?
How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY GEMINI. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Not my favorite book of Mia’s but her writing ability is so strong that she still created a beautiful story that I couldn’t peel my eyes away from. Her writing never ceases to amaze me.
“Someday I am going to leave here, but a part of my heart is going to remain. With you.”
The beginning was rushed. It was just too many time frames and POVs squeezed into 10% of a book, and I just didn’t care for that. It was like Mia was giving us all of this information just to make sure every one was at the same point so that she can begin the GOOD part of the story. And they ask themselves a lot of questions in their mind. A lot.
And honestly, a little communication goes a long way, Lia and Preston. For real…
I didn’t connect on any level with Lia but I connected with Preston and that’s pretty rare for me to connect to a male character in a book. But his thoughts and his perspective really stuck out to me and that is something I can appreciate because that means Mia excelled in executing a powerful story not just about one person but two.
There wasn’t much angst in my opinion but enough emotion in the story to keep you wanting more. As a reader, I’m so attracted to Mia’s writing style, she could have wrote this book about Lie and Preston doing nothing but sitting around eating tacos and I would have loved it.
