Book: On My Knees
Author: Meredith Wild
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him. Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a “work hard, play hard” lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.
Cameron Bridge has spent the past five years married to the military, trying to escape the painful memory of losing Maya. After fighting his own war in the desert, he starts a new life in New York City, with his siblings, Olivia and Darren, by his side.
When fate brings Maya back to him in the heart of a city filled with its own hopes and shadows, can Cameron find the girl he once loved in the woman she’s become?
Thanks to the author, I was allowed to read an ARC of this book for an honest review. This is a story about lost love and second chances. Cameron and Maya parted ways on bad terms after Maya would not accept his marriage proposal. Five years later, they discover each other in the same city only blocks apart. The story follows them as they attempt to get to know each other again, the whole time with Cameron trying to convince Maya to come back to him.
Maya is a troubled soul from the beginning. She doesn’t feel like she is as good as other people because of her background. She struggles from family difficulties that she doesn’t want to share with anyone else. She has worked towards a goal in her professional life seeking something that will help with her personal struggles. The only place she finds relief is with her partying weekends. When Cam comes back into her life, he discovers a young woman who is very different from the girl he left.
This story was very touching in many ways. It was sweet the way Cam worked so hard to help Maya deal with her struggles in ways other than partying. Maya faced some tremendous obstacles with her work and after his initial bad response, Cam was there for her. Cam loved her through everything and pushed hard for her to see that. Maya’s character grew more in the timeline of the book during her time with Cam than she had in her five years away from him. This book had a lot of emotional turns. Well written book that I enjoyed reading. Looking forward to the next in the series. 4.5 stars.
