WHAK cover FINAL_1
Left or right. It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all. If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back. If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me. I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn't know I had. And I love them both. My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself. The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too. Left or right. All I have to do is take a breath and turn.

About the Author:
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.

So...Going into this book, I had a clear favorite. Reese. I was Team Reese all the way. I had very little sympathy for Cameron. I had some, just not much. I didn't think he deserved any more than I gave. He decided that shutting his grieving wife out and let her mourn alone.
While I was reading this book, I starting falling in love with Cam as much as I was with Reese. I loved getting the deeper look into Cam's head. Knowing what he was thinking, why he did things, or was going to do things. I loved knowing his thoughts on his marriage and his love for Charlie. I loved getting to know him.
In this book, the roles of the men almost reversed. Cam was the one saving the day and making you fall in love with him, while Reese was the one messing up and making mistakes at almost every turn. Reese disappointed me in this book. I still loved him, I just know that he should have done things a lot differently than he did at certain points. He always seemed to get Charlie back into his arms though. I don't blame her, I would too.
In the two months that Charlie gave Cam, the two months she gave him to save their marriage, I started falling in love with him. The things he did for Charlie and said to her were the most romantic and beautiful things. But like Charlie, my mind would always go back to Reese as well.
I don't know how Charlie could deal with this. I was just reading about it and was dreading her making the choice. I couldn't imagine being in that situation and having to make the choice to break someone you loves heart. It would be torture. It was torture for me as a reader. I didn't want her to break either heart. I wanted her to be able to be with both, but because that couldn't happen, she had to choose.
When it came to the end of the 2 months she gave Cam, I was so torn on who I thought she would pick. When the journey first started (with this book) I just KNEW she would pick Reese. Then as I read, I thought "Nope....she's clearly going to choose Cam!" Kandi wrote this book in such a way that it made you keep second guessing yourself and not being able to figure out who it would be and I LOVED that. I loved that it wasn't obvious.
When she finally picked. I was relieved. I was heart broken for the other guy, I loved him and wanted her to be with him too, But I felt like she did make the right choice for her and her happiness. She chose the man that she SHOULD be with. The one who would make her happiest in the long run.
This duet was amazing. Definitely two of my top reads of the year so far. I'm starting to fall so in love with Kandi and her words. This book just shows how amazingly talented she is as a writer and she's most definitely doing what she was born to do!!!
