Kate has been through more than her fair share of tragedies in her life. After suffering the loss of her mother, daughter, and the love of her life, she’s finally found the strength to open herself up to love again. For once, everything is finally as it should be. Kate should’ve known that things were too good to be true; her life doesn’t work that smoothly.

It’s been four years since Michael left Kate, but he’s back now, and determined to win Kate’s heart once again. After discovering that Daniel and Michael are best friends, the situation spirals out of control quickly. Instead of dealing with her broken heart, Kate ignores it.

When Kate’s actions drive her to do the unthinkable, she knows she’s crossed the line. Unfortunately, she doesn’t realize it until it’s too little, too late. Her actions have consequences and now she’s trying to fix the unfixable. Can the men in Kate’s life grant her the forgiveness she can’t even find within herself?


I have followed this author even before she published the first book, Breaking Kate. I have become addicted to this series, and this installment in the Acceptance series is by far the best to date. I love how within the story there are so many different points of view and yet, they are all right. The situation Kate is in has no easy out, there is no way everyone can come out of this unscathed. And Kate is finally reaching her breaking point. After having dealt with the traumatic loss of Mike four years earlier, to the loss of Lila, then to struggling to find her new normal, she had fought so valiantly. She had finally decided to move forward and date again. Falling for Daniel was the happiest she had been. And then the walls came down around her. Mike came back, and he is like a brother to Daniel, Vanessa shows up with her surprise, and the announcement that either one could be responsible, and her nerves are at the breaking point. How can she be with either of them when they need each other just as much? When Kate snaps at a scene she did not see for what it really was, can her life ever be ok again? Or will this finally cement the guys' fate in regards to her? Her struggle is so gut wrenching, and then her dealing with and helping Vanessa opens very raw wounds for Kate. Her journey and struggle will tear at your heart and make you want to throw your kindle, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. The cast of characters and the things that they each go through has endeared them to me. I cannot wait to see how their struggle comes to a conclusion in the next book. This one ran me through the wringer, and the ending had me leaping out of my chair. Can Kate come out of this in a good place? Only Ms. Kelly has the answers.
