About this ebook

A secret threatens to consume her…

A man who challenges everything…

A connection so strong nothing will ever be the same.

Amber has always been in control. Of her high-powered career, her social life (or lack thereof), and well…pretty much everything. At least that’s what everyone thinks. So, when she finds herself back in her hometown, she’ll do anything to keep up the pretense. Including lying to her best friends.

‘Little’ Logan Myers has grown up since high school. In all the right ways. And the first time Amber runs into him in town, sparks fly—but not in a good way.

She’s opinionated, controlling and overbearing. But there’s something else—a vulnerability Logan’s pretty sure no one else has seen. Amber has secrets, and a deep hurt that he’s sure he can help her get past. If only she’ll open up.

After a lifetime of maintaining tight control an unexpected and overwhelming connection to Logan threatens to turn Amber’s life upside down. She can’t let herself get too close or trust too much, because if she does, the secrets she’s been keeping could ruin everything.

Attorney Amber Monroe was the strong, capable, and in charge of her destiny friend, at least that’s how she wants people to see her in When We Begin by Elena Aitken, book three in her Timber Creek series. However, Amber is actually reeling from the upheaval in her life and trying to figure out how she can move on now that she has temporarily come home; to help her best friend deal with the aftermath of death of her husband. Amber needs to come to terms with her old life and her new one before she can move on. Logan Myers is slowly healing from a tragic loss with the help of his horses. He started an Equine Therapy Program that helps children and adults heal. Amber’s dad is one of the volunteers and she doesn’t think he should. Confronting Logan about this, he senses that she too is hurting, and Logan challenges Amber to try the program. The healing horses play a large role in helping Amber understand what she must do in order to truly live life and deal with her issues. We get to meet old friends and new and they all play a part in both Logan’s and Amber’s lives. Grab tissues because the ending is amazing... Ms. Aitken wrote a wonderfully moving story filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

After two books in the Timber Creek series, I admit I was a little more than curious about what was going on with Amber. She's powerful, she's ambitious, she's goals personified. But I knew there had to be more to her than meets the eye because no one can have it all together all the time. Amber and Logan have incredible back stories that I wasn't at all expecting. The strength and perseverance that they both showed in picking up and moving forward was pretty inspiring. I loved them, both individually and together. The one thing that I didn't like much in this book was Christy, the MC from When We Were Us. I loved book two in this series but the way that Christy treated Amber toward the end of this book was just so disappointing. I'm really excited for Drew to get her own story and whatever comes next for this great group of friends!! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*

I absolutely love this series and I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next book when it comes out in the winter of 2019. Amber Monroe didn't expect her life to turn out this way, but it had and now she was going home to regroup and figure out what was next for her life. Being able to help Drew and Austin during this heartbreaking and difficult time gave her something to focus on besides herself so that was a definite plus. As far as the rest she was still struggling and hoped her friends and family never found out. Logan Myers had to find something to direct his focus when his life spiraled out of control after losing his wife in an automobile accident so starting up an equine therapy program in his hometown made perfect sense. All he wanted to do was help others and when he saw Amber in the local grocery store struggling he hoped she would turn to his program for help. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
