Wow, for starters, this was a well defined story from several characters point of view. After the Prologue, I just fell apart. The Prologue was the beginning of total heartache, secrets and lies. The beginning of a story that makes any person question the life they are living and if they are living it to the fullest. Live your life now because you don't know what life will bring you tomorrow.
"Moving Forward" is a journey through the death of a loved one and trying to continue coping, living and hoping to feel whole again. Jesika was left to mourn the loss of her husband and keep herself together for her sons sake. She is constantly battling moving forward and letting go. Jesika believed Jake was the only true love she would ever know. That was until Derek walked into her life. Of course Derek is a hottie firefighter who is a drummer in his spare time. YUMMY!

"He has been my refuge, my safe harbor, my potter and so much more."

This story has a cast of characters that are well defined and they lead us through many twist and turns that has heads spinning. Secrets and lies that are revealed has Jesika wondering who her dead husband was and if what they had was real.

Of course no story is complete without a BFF! And Mallory is the best there is. She brings so much entertainment and fun to this story. And the end just leads us to the continuation into the next book about Mallory...... I can't wait.....DRAMA! DRAMA! DRAMA!

The only thing I do wish was that there had been a little more about Jake. But other than that, this book is a MUST READ!
