Paul James loved Clara Bateman.
Hating her would have been easier.
She was the past, and he was hell-bent on keeping her there.
Or so he thought...


You’re my father.
I don’t know much about you. I know your name is Paul James, you’re a thrill seeker, and once upon a time you did stunts and people called you ‘Epic.’
I’ve been told you don’t know about me. That it’s complicated.
But for me it’s simple.
Here’s the thing: I’m twelve years old…and I’m dying.
And as much as this could crush my mother, I have to meet you before I go.
In time, I’m sure she’ll understand. She’s still in love with you.
So, Epic, if you read this, please come back. You don’t have to be my dad. You don’t even have to tell me you love me or you’re sorry. Just come see me.

Patiently waiting, but running out of time,

WOW!!!  BN Toler has done it once again by cutting deeply into my heart with another story that is so unlike anything I've ever read before.  Every now and then I stumble upon an author that I click with.  Whether it's their writing style or the ideas that they come up with, I just know that I need to read all their books.  It's breathtakingly unique, heartbreaking with some funny and heartwarming moments that left me an emotional mess but smiling at the very end.  This is not just a romance novel but one with character, heart and with a hopeful meaning to it. Be prepared to embark on a journey that started a decade ago and will live on.

  There were a lot of surprising twists to this story that did build up my anticipations and curiosity to read for hours on out.  This is a powerful read with a second chance kind of story.  Another thing that I love about this story, is that it wasn't predictable and also is that it was not all sad, there were some funny moments that balanced out the sadness of the situation.  He's name was Marcus, perfectly created for it too.

  The characters from this story all played an important role in order to make it a wonderful experience.  I could feel every emotions they were feeling and going through.  None of this author's books have the same pattern that would be expected, I can never tell how it will play itself out.  BN Toler's story telling is beautifully worded that flows flawlessly.

  If a story that is perfectly crafted as this one, can make me cry gut wrenching tears, well to me they deserve all the stars in the sky.  The bottom line is that I absolutely loved everything about this perfect story.

  It's told in dual POV that goes back in forth in time.  It does have an HEA that will leave the readers happy.  I think the readers should go in blindly and enjoy the ride.  I strongly recommend reading it.  It's an experience worth living through even if it's sad at times.  All of this author's book are all worth the reader’s precious time and money.

B N Toler lives in Virginia. When she's not reading and writing, she's thinking about reading and writing. Before she became a self-proclaimed writer, she worked as a real estate agent and as an orthodontic technician. **She will notice your teeth before your eyes or hair or anything.**

She enjoys shopping (way too much) and is on a first name basis with several employees at the local Target in her town.

She loves music,(bluegrass, country, 80's, actually she loves most music ~her favorite song is American Pie by Don McLean and she worships anything that is Elvis and Johnny Cash and Eric Church) dancing, (even though she sucks at it)reading, writing, eating (too much) sleeping late, (which she rarely gets to do) and laughing. If you can make her laugh, she will love you forever.
