About this ebook

Are the bonds of our first true love as strong as they feel when we’re young, innocent and consumed with the promise of forever?

The last time Charlotte Mason saw Simon Wade, he was shoving a paper bag from the pharmacy into her hands with a morning-after pill inside.

Even though he literally left her holding the bag, when love is true it’s limitless...and sometimes it's blind. She wants more for Simon than the ties that bind him to their dead end town. He has one shot at a better life, and she’ll stand aside so he can take it.

Nearly four years later Charlotte is still nowhere to be found, and it’s not as if Simon hasn’t been looking. How can he forget the girl who still haunts his dreams?

When the Night is Over is Book 1 in Lily Foster's Blackbird Series. Second chance romance, enemies to lovers, forbidden age gap, and men in uniform...Find out why readers are calling the Blackbird series "beautiful, heartbreaking and sexy."

Let Me Heal Your Heart is a heartbreaking story of first loves and adversity that can be read as a standalone. This is an emotional roller coaster about two lost souls given a second chance to be together. Told from both protagonists' points of view, Foster allows us to see the story from a unique perspective, and the reader may be surprised where their allegiances lie.

I just read the two negative reviews this book got because I was curious (I loved this book so much). There must have been some glitch because I was so grateful to finally download a romance that is a full, lengthier book. Lately I'm getting shorter romance books with cliffhangers or endings that are sped up. The story is a slow burn, interesting take on enemies to lovers. I cried reading this book and think the author did a great job in creating Simon and Charlotte. Moving on to book 2...

This is probably the best romance I've read all year, and I read a lot of them. This is a coming of age contemporary romance with a forbidden Romeo and Juliet backstory. The supporting cast of characters are well developed, and Simon and Charlotte are leading characters that you can't help but root for. Sexy, romantic, heartbreaking and inspirational. I loved this book and can't wait to read more from the author.
