Carly Summers and Greyston Sterling were each other's first kiss, first sexual experience, first love, first everything...

They were a match made in Heaven, that was, until Grey took a job as a freelance photographer which took him to the other side of the world. When it came down to a choice between his career and his girl - he chose his career.

Now, 10 years later, Grey's back in town and wants to see if they can rekindle what they had all those years ago. Carly has had relationships but nothing that lasted. No one ever compared to Grey.

But how can they if he's engaged to somebody else?

Excerpt:


“So your career comes before me?” I asked, already knowing the answer. “At least
look me in the eye and answer me, it’s the least you owe me Grey.”
“I don’t want to have to choose Carls,” he said as he caught my eye. “I just don’t
want to miss out on the experience of a lifetime. I get to see amazing things,
capture them on film while I experience the different cultures.”
“Just answer the question Grey – you want your career more than you want me.” I
started to cry again, I had wanted to get through this without crying but I was
fooling myself when I thought that.
“I’m sorry Carls,” he said as he took my hand into his. “I love you, I always will.
But this is the opportunity of a lifetime, it may never happen again. I need to
do this. I’m not making a conscious choice to put you second but if you weren’t

so stubborn, you’d come with me like I asked.”

MY REVIEW:

Carly and Greyston were childhood sweethearts, met young and madly in love as teens. They did everything together and had many firsts together. A picture of young love that lasts forever. Until it all goes wrong. Grey has the opportunity to take his dream and make it bigger and better, with the perfect job offer of being a photographer abroad. He is madly in love with Carly, but can't see beyond this huge opportunity. He asks Carly to go with him, but Carly is hurt and her heart is breaking at the possibility that the love of her life is going to choose a career over her. She tells him, she won't uproot her life and they part on bad terms.
Ten long years later, Carly is a freelance journalist and has moved on. She has her own home, loves her job and although content, never really got over her first love. Although having had a few relationships, nothing that has lasted. Not when her heart was given to Grey, and he took it with him ten years ago.
That's when all changed, Carly spots Grey and something within her is fired back up. As soon as he spots her, it's obvious that his feelings haven't changed after all this time. Yet, Grey is there with a woman, who is showing off an engagement ring. Carly is polite but aloof, keeping her distance and shielding her heart. Yet Grey is persistent, he remembers exactly what he missed from home, and wants it back.
So begins a game of chase, Grey is determined to win back Carly, and make up for the time they lost. Carly wants Grey more tan anything, yet can't possibly comprehend giving in to an engaged man.
It's obvious the chemistry is still present and probably as strong as it was before he left. Whenever they are together, it's sweet how strong they feel for each other. Grey is adorable and seems willing to fight tooth and nail for Carly. Carly is torn on her morals and feelings. The man she never stopped loving, who is also engaged. So follows a series of events to bring these two back together.
It really is quite a sweet and lovely tale of second chance love. Although the odds seem stacked against them, time and again. Fate would seem to step in and give them a little helping hand from time to time. I loved seeing the journey they took and how they handled all the obstacles to get to their happy ever after and finish line. Although they seemed to have to deal with some pretty horrid things thrown at them, they were both strong characters and came back fighting. A very sweet love story that makes you sigh at the perfect moments, and gasp at the heartbreaking ones.

About the Author:


Keren lives in the UK and is an avid bookworm; she has been since she read things like Black Beauty, What Katy Did
and The Hobbit as a child. Her first real memories of reading are the summers she used to lie on her bed and re-read What Katy Did and What Katy Did Next.
Over the years she has come to realise that she is a bit OCD about books. They have to be in perfect condition without the slightest bit of damage.
She is a book reviewer and has been for the past 18 months or so. The idea for Stolen came to her one day but she never thought she’d actually write it let alone publish it. If it wasn’t for her author friend Kira Saito, the idea would still be stuck in her head not on paper. But constant love and support from Kira is why you are now able to read Stolen. Stolen is her first novel but now that she’s written one, she knows she needs to write more. There will be one sequel, called Freed which will be from Bodhi’s POV. This will be set a couple of years on. Then, the plan is for her to write either NA or Adult Contemporary Romances. She has a big crush on Lady Antebellum’s music at the moment and their songs have inspired a few book ideas. Keren loves hearing from her readers and if you want to contact her, you can do so at any of the following places:
