He was all I knew before I didn’t know him anymore…
For eleven years, Riley Stallings remained completely devoted to her longtime boyfriend, Brian Shepard. In the beginning, nothing could put a strain on the newly loves—not even an unplanned pregnancy or her parents disowning her for it. But as time goes on, work absorbs Brian, leaving Riley at home, lonely and empty, to handle everything on her own.
But then she meets him—a man who causes a gravitational pull and prompts the earth to disappear from under her feet. A man who makes her struggle to remember her name—her son’s new teacher.
Knowing all relationships face difficult obstacles, she turns a blind eye and blames the lure on the lack of attention and fights even harder to fix her broken relationship. And then it happens… Brian presents an inconceivable challenge, derailing Riley and forcing new beginnings for everyone. Will their love be enough to weather the storm?

WOW!! TC Matson you hit every emotion in this book! You made the readers laugh, cry, and took us on an somersault of epic proportions. Being a reader, a mother, a wife I understood all the ups and downs, feelings of betrayal and inadequacy, self doubt and self provision Riley went through.
At time I cheered right alone with Riley, agreeing with her to not give up. I was in her corner rooting for her and when the floor was ripped out from underneath her, I felt every emotion as if it was happening to me. I cried with her and stood shocked just as she did.
TC Matson, you nailed it with this one! This is story I believe many women will find pieces that they can easily connect with. I applaud your work on taking tough subjects from everyday lives and not make them easy but you made this story 100% believable and not just a fictional romance.
I fell madly for both Riley & Brian in the beginning as well as Trenton in the end.
Is this a love triangle, no not really, this is a story of find what makes the heart beat, of finding the true meaning of Love and Understanding.
“Dreaming in Reality…You dream in reality when you pick up a book and get lost in it. In my writing, I strive to take you to a place where reality and fantasy become a blurry line. Everything should be relatable. It could happen…couldn’t it?” ~ TC Matson
TC Matson loves to let her character’s voices be heard. With a head full of stories, she puts her keyboard through a beating daily. With an understanding that love isn’t always instant and full of flowers—her writing mirrors it.
She’s a romance junkie at heart and an avid reader. Add those two together and she will devour books within hours, getting lost in the world the author creates.
Matson resides in the peaceful Piedmont area of NC with her husband and three boys, where staying hopped up on caffeine is the key to her sanity. Chaos is indefinite and a sense of humor is an absolute must.
