Shawn Evans has finally allowed someone inside her thick walls that she has used for so many years to protect herself. Rebecca Johns somehow managed to crack Shawn's fortress and the two of them were now preparing for the birth of their baby, an event that Shawn had never foreseen in her future. Just when Shawn was starting to trust that she could truly be happy with someone, life throws a wrench in her plans.

Her father shows up and tries to keep Shawn and her sister Sam from helping their younger sister, Stacy, who has come to Charlotte to settle into a new life and job after college. Will her father's cruel words, callous behavior and all the old pain she's experienced cause her happiness to crumble or will Shawn allow Rebecca's love to heal those wounds? Will she allow Rebecca to see her human side, the side of her that is torn apart by the fact that her parents hate her?

Sam Evans is dealing with her own pain caused by her parent's rejection of her and more painfully, her son. She can't fathom how her sister, Shawn, has dealt with this treatment from them for so long without being crushed. Can she be strong enough to help her sister through the darkness and face her own pain?

This is the sequel to Cori's first book New Beginnings. I love how she writes from all the characters points of view. The book starts where the the last book ended. She did a great job getting a new reader of the series up to speed without re-telling too much for those of us who just finished the 1st book. This book shows the characters creating their own families after being rejected by their family for being gay. It is very realistic portrayal of the raw emotion of the effect of being made to feel not good enough by those who are supposed to love you. It deals with making tough choices in order to break the cycle of hate that these sisters experienced. We are introduced to another sister who is very open and accepting of her sisters' sexuality. There is also the introduction of Randy, a hot police officer who seems to be in the right place at the right time...alot. The hate in this book is nicely balanced with lots of love. Lots of love between best friends, sisters and lovers. There are quite a few sexually charged scenes that Cori seems to nail! She takes her time writing these scenes so much that you'll have to blink to remind yourself your not there yourself! The story progresses nicely and will have you turning the pages quickly to get to the next one. Nicely titled the human side bc it shows the power of love and how it helps to open doors for others who are also in need of love.
