"Marry me.""What?" I stared back at him, unblinking.He moved closer, taking my face in his hands. "I love you, Evie. I look into the future, and the only thing I see clearly is you. Marry me."What's an eighteen-year-old girl who was madly in love with her nineteen-year-old boyfriend say? Of course, I said yes.Twenty-four hours later, I married Adam Gunner at a Vegas chapel to the sounds of "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. Not the best omen. I get that now.Then, exactly one week later, I left him. I walked out, leaving behind my wedding ring, annulment papers, and my heart, and he never knew why. I haven't seen him since. Not in ten long years.Now, he's here, standing before me. Looking at me with nothing but hurt and hatred in his eyes, he wants answers. Answers I can't give.

A second chance romance for me is like nothing else. And when it's written as beautifully as When I Was Yours is, I'm in heaven. This gloriously wonderful story of Evie and Adam made me swoon. I got lost in their world and didn't want to leave. I loved how the author gave us both alternate POV's and past and present perspectives. We get to watch as Evie and Adam meet, fall in love and marry very quickly. Adam, the man who seemingly has it all but in the end, just wants the secure love he has found with Evie. And Evie, the woman who struggles to make ends meet and take care of her father and sister, but who strives to have it all. Together, despite their young age, they seem to have found that nirvana. But soon as it's ripped apart, we are as clueless as Adam is when Evie leaves and never looks back. Their reunion is explosive and shocking and passionate. With 10 years separating them, there is no guarantee they can overcome the hurt, the betrayal and the unanswered questions. I was heartbroken right along with Adam and I didn't want to trust Evie again. But I have to say that Samantha Towle even broke down my resistance with her stellar writing, and I couldn't help but want their imperfectly perfect love to flourish once again. Adam and Evie's journey is not an easy one but I loved that it felt real and every single time Evie held back, I was there rooting for Adam to just hold on. Surely they could work it out. I will only say, without spoiling the ending, that the raw emotion, the deeply-held love these two have for each other, no matter how hard they try to keep from admitting it, enabled me to keep the faith. Their minds might have been stubborn but their hearts never lost their way. A love story that will make you sigh long after you've read the last words. A huge 5 stars!

Samantha Towle has a gift of adding such depth to all of her characters, and in her latest release, WHEN I WAS YOURS, she did a wonderful job creating Adam and Evie. Adam and Evie's story is one of true love, struggle, strife and smiles. The fact that we get a glimpse into their lives 10 years ago and now, is a treat. Evie's Dad and Sister are endearing, Adam's parents, a joke, but it's the support of a few special friends that really stand out, especially Adam's best friend, Max. I love so much about this book! The ocean at Malibu, the belief of eternal love and the wisdom to take chances when necessary. Most of all, I love the author. Bravo on another great one, Samantha Towle!!
