If growing up in her home wasn’t enough to shatter Madelyn Stone’s illusions of happily ever after, then serving several years behind bars certainly was. Her crime? Believing in family and growing up on the wrong side of the tracks. She’s learned the hard way that there is no such thing as a prince who’ll ride in and save the day, and she pledges never to trust anyone again. Never.
Between a career in the Marines and plans to marry his childhood sweetheart, Holten Andrews had his future all mapped out…until life took an unexpected, heart-ripping turn. Now he’s moved on with a new career in law, as well as vowing to confine women to one of three categories: family, professional, and f*ckable. No blurring the lines. Ever.
Love is the last thing on Maddy’s mind as she attempts to forge a new path out of the wreckage of her life. Holt’s sense of loyalty is rocked when he’s blindsided by feelings for a woman he would normally condemn. When revelations from Maddy’s past threaten her safety, Maddy has to put her faith in Holt, while Holt fights not to lose the one woman who’s blurred all of his lines. Every choice they make will figure into whether or not they can make yesterday’s dreams still come true tomorrow.
Yesterday’s Tomorrow is ME Montgomery’s newest novel (and the first I’ve read from her). I LOVED this book.
Maddy was dealt a crap hand in life. From the death of her mother, to her craptastic father, to her no good sister. She had a grandmother that adored her but old age got the best of her and Maddy was left alone (for all intents and purposes) again. Poor decisions lead to Maddy spending 6 years of her life in jail.
The book starts with Maddy getting out of prison and beginning a new work placement program sponsored by the husband of one of Maddy’s elementary school teachers.
Holt has had a rough few years. It takes a while to learn fully what happened with Holt but as the story goes on we learn his past and all I can say is that my heart absolutely broke for him.
Can Maddy and Holt help each other heal? Can Yesterday’s Tomorrows be today’s good days? This book is about healing, perseverance, strength, forgiveness, and love. I will definitely be picking up more books by this author!
M.E. Montgomery has been an avid reader her entire life, and after falling in love with so many characters created by other authors, a new one began to form in her head. With the support of her family, she decided to to write it.
She is the homework queen to her four school aged children who think she is a genius in math, science, history and spelling. Fortunately, her biology and elementary school teaching background help her to keep up the expert façade, at least for now.
Although born and raised in the Washington DC metro area, she has considered many places to be called home since she left to attend college in North Carolina. She is a proud Navy wife, setting up a home wherever the Navy sends her husband. When she’s not reading or writing, she loves to go camping with her family, drink wine on the deck, and be swept off to romantic getaways.
