From the outside, Abby’s life looks like a fairytale.
Loving family, wealthy lifestyle, education at a prestigious university. The truth? She’s barely managing to survive. Few know the nightmare she lived before she was adopted. And no one knows the secret agony that still haunts her nightmares.
With a degree from Berkeley, she could have gone anywhere, but she’s back in Colorado. Not for a fresh start—fresh starts are only an illusion—but for Wes Ahern. Her protector, who throws around words like “therapy” and “talk to me.” Her brother in every way but blood. The one man she wishes could be so much more.
Maybe, just this once, she can stop running from her demons.
But does she dare let Wes see inside the darkest closets of her pain…or will love be the biggest mistake of her life?
An inspirational and emotional contemporary romance Begin with You is a heartbreaking tale of fresh starts and old wounds. This jarring and dark novel will leave readers at the edge of their seats. This is part one of a duet, thus containing a cliffhanger that leads into the next installment. It contains references to childhood trauma, kidnapping, and PTSD.
Today we are celebrating the release of the first title in Claudia Burgoa’s Chaotic Love duet! BEGIN WITH YOU is now live (99 cents till Monday!) and the second book in the set, BACK TO YOU, releases August 9th.

Begin with You by Claudia Burgoa is an emotional and heartfelt story that will leave you drained and wanting more. This is a duet, so be prepared! I only recently found Claudia and already know her stories are gripping and angst-driven, all which I love as a reader, so this was no different.
Wes and Abby meet when Wes’s family takes Abby in as a foster child. They become fast friends, as Wes gives Abby something she desperately needs. They remain friends through the years, even as she travels. But now she is back home and close to Wes again. Wes could not be happier, as he loves Abby, but is prepared to be her friend and support, if that is what she wants and needs. But Abby’s demons still haunt her. We are given glimpses and flashbacks surrounding her childhood, all while she tries to keep them hidden.
Slowly, Wes begins to show Abby what they could have and hopes she could learn to trust in him. To say I devoured this book is an understatement. This book consumed me. I want to share so much, but at the same time, you just need to experience this story. It is heartbreaking at times, but also heartfelt to see these two come together. A must-read for sure! I cannot wait to get my hands on book two!
