About the Author

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband-a.k.a. the U.S.-with their offspring to start a new adventure.

She now lives in Colorado working for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he's the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.

Hudson and Jade meet at a wedding, he is the best man, she is related to the bride. They have a one night stand and soon she leaves to go to college in Australia. But they connect and start a long-term friendship through phone calls, texting, and Jade’s occasional visits him. Their friendship/mutual attraction spans eight years as she travels around the world. Then she returns home and they take their friendship to the next level. Hudson’s mother walked out on the family when he was five. Jade is adopted, but before that, she passed through a number of foster homes. Hudson and Jade are both are afraid of having their hearts broken by a loved one leaving. I liked how Hudson was so protective and loving he was to Jade. I loved Jade’s storytelling and free spirit. I struggled with their inability to fully communicate with each other but was very happy with the ending. I received an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

They have to fight for each other and then never stop fighting. Will Hudson and Jade win the battle or their own personal war? Will they find there reason to stay? “You have to find a reason to stay. When you do, I’ll be here, waiting for you.” "She is my other half. My soulmate." " I can’t live without her. Jade is everything to me. I waited my whole life for her." It's a great novel! No cliffs; it's definitely different and unique. Go in with a clear and open mind. Allow the characters to take you into their world.

This is a poignant and epic love story between two broken souls. Hudson Drago was abandoned by his mother when he was small, leaving him to help raise his younger sister because his father could never recover from that heartbreaking loss. Hudson never wanted to marry and set himself up for so much pain and suffering when they would eventually leave him. Jade Vance was abandoned at birth and rejected from one foster home after another until she was finally adopted by a very loving and supportive family. She still has anxiety over not being good enough and is always trying to please those around her, ignoring her own needs and desires. Jade and Hudson meet at Hudson's best friends wedding. What starts as a one night stand grows into so much more. Jade is off the next day to attend graduate school in Australia, then travel the world as a photojournalist. Hudson stays behind to prepare to start his own company. They can't stop thinking of each other and soon start calling to stay connected. They become best friends and slowly fall in love. Jade is carefree, passionate, and creative while Hudson is practical, strong, and kind. He comforts Jade and makes her laugh when she needs it. But can time and distance keep you warm on lonely nights? When they are in the same place, can a heart survive the ache it feels when they are forced to separate time after time? Jade finally finds a reason to stay and Hudson is eager to finally begin the life together he has patiently waited years for. But they both looked at a piece of paper very differently. To one it is a prison and to the other it is security. When meddling family, past lovers and a piece of paper comes between them, will they be able to find their reason to fight for their HEA? I fell in love with Jade and Hudson, even though they frustrated me at times. They were so good for each other, helping each other heal. I love that Ms. Burgoa takes her time developing Hudson, Jade and their complex relationship, making their growth, and epic love feel solid, authentic and unbreakable. She expertly weaves a multilayered tale that will make you feel every emotion and capture your heart. This unique and refreshing love story is a must read!
