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.


You have got to be kidding me? I am speechless. What a cliffhanger.... Ugh, where's the next book? I'm having withdrawals. This is why Claudia is one of the best authors ever. She writes these angst love stories that get you hooked on her characters and you never want their story to end.

Abby is sweet, beautiful and amazing on the outside and her friendship with Wes is a very special one sealed when she was 17 and came to stay with his family as a foster kid. Wes quickly became her protector, but never really knew what made Abby terrified enough to have constant nightmares and pretend she couldn't talk for the first month she was living there.

Abby had just lost her sister and needed a place to feel loved. Abby was not at all what she appeared to be on the outside. She was quiet and wouldn't talk for awhile because it was easier to shut everyone out, even the ones who were trying to love you. You see Abby learned that love always comes with a cost. She learned that it was so much better to be mute and pretend she wasn't there than to show herself to others. Hers is a tragic story but will she ever share it with the one man who might be able to heal her?

Wes was adopted at five by the same family Abby came to stay with years later. His start wasn't the greatest either but with the love of his adoptive family, he learned to rise above his troubled beginnings. Wes was tough on the inside, helped run his fathers business and didn't show his heart of gold to just anyone. I was HOOKED on Wes right away. He wasn't the typical playboy gone wrong. He always put his family first and went above and beyond for those he loved. 

Simply phenomenal those are the perfect words for this novel. Phenomenal characters, phenomenal storyline and a phenomenal ending although I must say I have NOT slept since finishing it as I HAVE TO read the next book like NOW!!! 

If you follow my reviews, it is no secret that Claudia is one of my favorite authors and she has been since her very first book came out. If you haven't picked up her books, this would be a great one to start with. Fall in love with Abby and Wes and at the same time, fall in love with this author! I promise you, you won't regret it!
