From the outside, Abby’s life looks like a fairytale.

Loving family, wealthy lifestyle, education at a prestigious university. The truth? She’s barely managing to survive. Few know the nightmare she lived before she was adopted. And no one knows the secret agony that still haunts her nightmares.

With a degree from Berkeley, she could have gone anywhere, but she’s back in Colorado. Not for a fresh start—fresh starts are only an illusion—but for Wes Ahern. Her protector, who throws around words like “therapy” and “talk to me.” Her brother in every way but blood. The one man she wishes could be so much more.

Maybe, just this once, she can stop running from her demons.

But does she dare let Wes see inside the darkest closets of her pain…or will love be the biggest mistake of her life?

An inspirational and emotional contemporary romance Begin with You is a heartbreaking tale of fresh starts and old wounds. This jarring and dark novel will leave readers at the edge of their seats. This is part one of a duet, thus containing a cliffhanger that leads into the next installment. It contains references to childhood trauma, kidnapping, and PTSD.

Claudia Burgoa is one of the few authors I one click without reading the book blurb, this time I really wish I had. I have a hard time reading anything that involves abuse of children - and no it doesn't matter what type of abuse I find all abuse of children to be repulsive but the sexual abuse of a minor is beyond anything that I can comprehend. The one thing I am thankful for is that while there is mention of various abuse of minors, not just one, we are not given the gory details of it all...and because of this I was not only able to complete this book but I am actually looking forward to reading Back to You which is the next book in the duet.

Abigail Lyons is finally taken from her home and put into foster care after the death of her stepsister, what no one knows is the horrors that went on in the house before that night. But the saving grace of it all is the family she is sent to live with Will and Linda have taken in several children over the years and with the help of their son Sterling and adopted son Weston they hope to be what Abby needs to heal. Right from the very beginning Abby and Wes form a deep friendship, this one line sums them up perfectly.... "You're my anchor, just like I'm your compass."

Throughout the book we are moved through time with flashbacks and time progression, this book takes place over a six year period, from the time Wes and Abby meet to the crazy cliffhanger we are left with, but the flashbacks have us going even further back in time. Both Abby and Wes have had trouble childhoods, and hopefully in the next book they will find a way to heal themselves as well as one another.

I always recommend Claudia's books and this one is no different but please be aware that It contains references to childhood trauma, rape, kidnapping, and PTSD. This is not a very dark read but I wouldn't consider it a light contemporary read either there is also a hint of suspense so if that sounds like something you may enjoy I say grab it and give it a chance...I don't think you'll be disappointed. Happy Reading!!!
