You have to fix your first mistake…

An accident drove Dalton Stark head first into a bottle. While he was drowning, he lost his job, his family, and Zoey– the best thing that ever happened to him. He’s sober now and slowly earning back the trust of his family, but his mother is gone and Zoey’s moved on without him. Even though things will never be the same, he’s determined to make it: One Day at a Time.

Before you deserve a second chance…

Dalton’s picking up the pieces of his broken life when Zoey unexpectedly comes back to Rapid City. She’s desperate and alone and needs him more than ever. He’s not sure he deserves it, but he’s been given another chance and he’s taking it. He just has to convince her, and everyone else around him, that he’s…



Dalton, the hot mess drunk from the first book, is trying to make amends for his past sins. He’s sober, a workaholic, attends AA meetings religiously and being around his family more. Good thing because they need him. He just wants to be what they need him to be, what he should’ve been before.

When his ex comes back to town in need of help, he jumps at the chance to do it. He needs to make amends to Zoey more than anyone else. He was a total shit to her. He may have been trying to protect her but still, his actions were douchey.

I liked this but had a major issue with it. When his ex shows back up, she’s just left her husband. Her husband was a wife beater but she was still married. Not to mention pregnant. That’s a hot button for me. It’s still cheating.
