It’s time for Sawyer to start living her life. Since she was fifteen she has taken care of everyone but herself, including her older brother Dane. She has been lying to herself to keep from feeling the pain of her parent’s death. Now she is twenty and she’s ready to start a life of her own. Moving into her parent’s lake house would be the perfect escape. Wouldn’t it? That’s what she thought. Only, it led her right into the emotional place she’s been hiding from all this time. All of those years of running from her feelings, she now has to face them. It’s too much. She can’t deal with it alone. Someone has to help. She’ll do anything to escape the heartbreak, but you can only run so far.
Travis can’t believe his eyes; his half-opened, blood shot eyes. Sawyer Evans was in the flesh and standing over him. He hadn’t seen this girl since he was ten years old. Travis only saw the Evan’s during the summer when they moved into the lake house. He and Dane were best friends. When Dane invited him and the old gang to a welcome back party at the Lake House, he couldn’t wait to go. It turns out getting wasted was only half the fun. Seeing Sawyer was the other half. She was the sexiest girl he’d ever seen and he was going to make sure that she knew it. Only she shot him down time and time again. He’s determined to break down those walls and get inside her head, but he’ll have to be sober to do it, and no matter how hard he tries, she’ll always run. He can’t keep chasing her. He has to figure out a way to make her stay.
It’s time to stop running, stop hiding, and start learning where the true escape lies. Everyone will face heartbreak, but not everyone will find love.

This book was wonderful, and had my heart melting for Travis. I loved the feelings this book emits and the many emotions I was feeling while reading it. I fell in love with the characters right from the start.
Sawyer lives with her Uncle Jake after both her parents had died. It has been six years since that horrible night. Her brother Dane, attends college not too far away.
Sawyer is now grown up a little almost 21 and now she wants to move out on her own. Moving to the lake house that her parents owned, she was set to try new things. Dane helps her move, and throws a party. She meets Travis, who she has known her whole life.
As she reconnects with Travis, the story begins.
“You wouldn’t like me at all if you remembered who I was.” – Travis
“There aren’t any rules Sawyer. We can do this any way you want to do it. Just as long as we are both in this together.” – Travis
This was a great read, that left me breathless. I loved all of the dynamics with the characters, and hopefully there will be another book about some of the side characters.
Regina captures the reader’s heart with the love she writes into her characters. I think everyone will enjoy this book. I only wish the ending was a bit more, I felt it ended too quickly. Travis is definitely worth it.
I felt this book was very well written, and can’t wait to read other titles by this author. She did a very good job at story-telling and bringing her characters to life.
