Unfortunately this is the first book in the series that I have read. After the first chapter I was able to catch up to what had happened before and I was then able to better enjoy the rest of the story. This is the story of Charlene and Thomas and how they began their relationship. I was not a fan of Thomas at the beginning but he slowly grew on me and I fell in love with him along with Charlene. Now, Charlene, I loved her from the beginning. She was strong and brave and knew exactly the way she wanted to go. She helped others to see a different way of living of their lives. This was a sweet story that unfolded into a good romance but it does leave you needing more which will hopefully be addressed in future books. I loved this story and recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different but amazing. I plan on going back to the beginning and read this series to get a better idea of what I missed. I can't wait!
