Genre: Contemporary Romance
Left or right.
It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all.
If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back.
If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me.
I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn’t know I had.
And I love them both.
My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself.
The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too.
Left or right.
All I have to do is take a breath and turn.

This book picks up right where the first one left off and thank goodness because OMG I needed to know what was going to happen with these three characters that I was so invested in. I was so torn after finishing the first book. Who will Charlie choose and who’s heart would be shattered? My heart was pulled back and forth like a game of tug a war on who I wanted her to be with, who I thought was her true love, her home.
“I was at the fork I knew I’d eventually get to all along, the decision I never wanted to make between two choices I never knew I had before two months ago.”
Sometimes I find stories like this one have some level of predictability, but oh no, not this one. Not by a freaking long shot. The author wrote a story that holds our hearts and minds hostage until the very end. Where I ended book one torn, I knew without a doubt pretty early on in this book whose “team” I was on. As I read on and obsessed over who she would choose, there was no clue or indication.
“Just..give me this time with your heart before you decide to give it all to him.”
Who will Charlie choose? I can’t tell you that, but what I can tell you is this book was crazy emotionally intense and it was so damn good. Kandi Steiner is such a talented writer and in this duet she gives us some amazingly, unforgettable characters. If you are in the mood for a ton of angst and a hell of a story then pick up this duet and take a journey with Charlie, Cameron and Reese.
“We are all sinners. We all make mistakes. But today, I would right my wrongs, and I would make my choice, and I would accept the consequences as they came.”

About Kandi Steiner
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
