Genre: Contemporary Romance BUY NOW
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I was beyond excited when I received this book in my Bookworm box…signed by BOTH authors I might add. At first I wanted to lick the book but quickly decided that wouldn’t be a good idea. I mean come on! These authors are ridiculously good looking.
Anyway were was I? Oh yes as I was saying I’ve had it on my TBR shelf for quite some time and finally decided to sit down and read it. Only now I’m banging my head against that wall that I didn’t run screaming like a mad woman to the bookstore to read it the day it released.
My favorite thing about the book was the completely different POVs. K.L.’s writing was beautiful. She made me feel so much freaking emotion. I instantly fell in love with Katie.
B.T. on the other hand took my breath away at times. I couldn’t wait to keep reading to know what was going to happen next. Intense.
Everyone that has ever loved can relate to the story. Katie’s first love, first….everything leaves her without saying goodbye, breaking her heart in the process. Years later while trying to overcome yet another tragedy from her past. Her therapist recommends that she befriend a soldier through a pen pal program. That’s when she sees the name of the man that will forever own her….Devin Clay.
She is left with so many unanswered questions. Why did he leave her? Why didn’t he call? Why didn’t he care? Forced to finally get answers she lets him have it. The first letter well lol she calls him a dick. Did he deserve it? Most certainly.
But he writes back and then the emails start and the feelings and the phone calls. Katie realizes that her heart never stopped loving him and that she is meant to have happiness (and forgiveness) in her life.
Together they mend the wounds that were left open years ago and when they finally meet see each other face to face they collide…no wrong word they combust! Whew fanning self (hot scene alert).
But the ending will floor you. Sorry no spoilers here. All I will divulge is that it will leave you raw and gasping for breath.
Favorite Scene: The Hotel
Favorite Quotes: I probably should start with chapter one word one but here are a few.
You’re more than my best friend—you’re it for me, Dev. You’re my soul mate. You hold my heart in your hands.”
”She claims my dreams and then consumes every bit of my mind every second I’m awake. And not only has she infiltrated my brain, she’s reclaimed the empty spot in the center of my chest too.”
”Love doesn’t have an expiration date, Katie.”
”All my heart needed was to be near him again to remember that it beat for him.”
