HE is trying to piece together his broken life.
SHE is running away from her wedding day.
THEY meet in San Francisco.
From the beginning they agree not to exchange anything truthful about their lives, not even their real names. Instead, as they embark on an unplanned tour of California, they construct the perfect lives they wish they led. As they hide behind grandiose stories, witty banter, and suggestive winks, their romance blooms. But when their dark pasts finally catch up, will they have the courage be who they really are and find a future together?
He + She is a free-spirited romance about soul-awakening second changes, heartbreak, and hopeful beginnings.
My review :
He + She is an intense, wonderful trip about two lost souls in the pursuit of a fresh start.
One day, two of them met on a airport and all their journey began.
She, with a torn wedding dress, eloping the day, looking all crazy and He, wanted to start a new life.
In a way, their two souls recognized in each other, attracted like two magnets.
The story began like a “fairy tale”, a girl and a guy met and started to get to know each other. But some subjects are not allowed and they didn’t vive their names. Attracted to her, He couldn’t help to be next to her, always coming back to her.
Their journey filled with lust, love, concern about each other real lives, hope to be a better person, the desire to have someone to rely on, even if everything is not real and for a short time.
I like how their relationship evolved, their connection was so poignant, intense. We can sense that they want more but there were some containment from both parts. They felt ugly inside and kind of ashamed of their past, heavy luggage they carried on.
Could they have a future together? What happened when the trip is over?
This is how their trip continued and the more they stayed together, the more the lies and the truth collided, leasing to a point of no return. But fate had other plans and we can sense that they definitely meant to be together, even of the truth was really a shock, a big slap in the face!
Michelle Warren’s writing was so full of life and i enjoyed living the journey of Shea and Hew. Through their trip they grew up together and even after the truth was revealed, they grew up apart as individuals, finding their own place in this world. When people meant to be, whenever the time, place, they’ll always find each other. Beautiful story about new beginnings!
