After surviving a devastating car accident that took her father's life, Bryn Woods feels like she has nothing left in her hometown of Savannah, GA. Along with losing her father, her boyfriend, Tyler, unexpectedly leaves town the same time of the accident. Feeling alone, broken and confused, Bryn leaves Savannah for college in New York City to escape her heartbreak.

Four years later, Bryn returns to Savannah to live in her childhood home. Slowly, she begins to let the people of her past back into her life. She lets the protective walls she's built to protect herself crash down around her. As she begins to find love again with Tyler, secrets start to unravel themselves about his past. Tyler has secrets of his own. Secrets connected to the death of Bryn's father. Secrets Tyler didn't even know he kept.
Four years ago Bryn's world fell apart.  She was on top of the world living with a great dad, an amazing best friend, and a loving boyfriend Tyler.  But one day her world was shattered when without explanation Tyler announced that him and his family would be leaving the next day and never coming back.  He never offered her a reason why they were leaving just packed up and left town leaving Bryn completely devastated.  She tried calling and texting the next day and nothing.  No response, just complete and utter silence.  Bryn tried to put on a happy face for her dad knowing that she was just days from starting college.  Bryn's world further shattered around her when she's in a horrific car accident while her dad is driving her to her first day of school leaving her with no one.  No boyfriend, no best friend, and worst of all no dad.  Carter, her dad's best friend and his son Ashton step into the picture helping Bryn out by moving in with her just like her dad asked him to in the event that something happened to him.  Bryn tried to move on and get over what happened but after one semester at college she had enough and decided it was time to pick up and leave for New York for a fresh start.

Bryn makes it four years without revealing her past to anyone, not even her roommate Olivia.  Until one day just two weeks from graduation she receives a call that will send her back home and to a house she hasn't set foot in in the last four years.  Knowing she could never sell the house, Bryn decides to move home for good to Savannah and move back into the house.  When she gets home, she discovers through Ashton that Tyler and her best friend Charlotte are back in town.  She knows seeing them again is going to be near impossible, and she eventually runs into both Charlotte and Tyler.  Tyler is just has handsome as he was four years ago when he walked out of her life.  She still feels deep love for him, but with the way he walked out of her life she's not sure if she can forgive Tyler or Charlotte.  She begins to mend her life, rebuilding friendships with people from back home and even slowly allowing Tyler back into her life.

Tyler knows he must take things slow with Bryn or she will never give him the chance he wants to prove that he still loves her and had no choice but to leave.  But Tyler has a secret.  He never told her why his family really left, and when she finds out will their relationship be able to survive the truth.  When more secrets come out that neither of them knew will their already fractured relationship be able to survive or will it send Bryn or Tyler running in the other direction again just like four years ago?

This book was a sweet romance that I enjoyed.  Parts of this book had me in tears because it was so emotional to watch Bryn and Tyler try to mend their broken relationship and I really felt for Bryn for all that she has lost.  This book was well written and definitely worth the time out to read it and I look forward to other work by Alexandria Rhodes in the future, 4 stars!
