I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.
I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my soul into my music, but I’ve never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.
And now I’m going back.
After ten years.
I hope I can explain that after all this time.
I still want her to be my forever girl.
My review :
This book was recommended by an another book lover and I love rock stars!
From the beginning, we had such emotions here. Reading from their dual POV their feelings, aspirations, life after they broke up, completely melt my heart and it was only the first chapters.
Back to the place he left 10 years ago, Liam was coming back to his town, attending his best friend’s funeral.
He left his soulmate, high school sweetheart and broke her heart.
After those years, he hadn’t move on and coming back here could be the opportunity to explain, to reach her again.
Liam was so tortured, struggling in his youth to be an athlete or a musician. He felt being pressured to be someone he couldn’t be, and realized this was a way to get away from this life and follow his dreams.
Josie tried to move on from their break up and now she’s engaged, mother of a little boy.
We can sense how much her heart was torn into pieces and how Liam’s departure ruined her.
Josie was struggling to let Liam in her life and scared to be hurt again. She was on her defenses. Hopefully her best friends were here to pick her when she was falling down.
How can you move on when the love of your life, broke up with you, because it was too much and never looked back?
When they met after 10 years, both of the feelings buried inside came to the surface. Could Liam could get through the wall she build? This time, he won’t run away. He would stand and be there for her this time. Josie, was,is and will always be his forever!
What if Liam stayed with Josie? Could he be happy, having his career and the love of his life? In this story, many questions were lifted, regrets about making things otherwise. This story was a deep emotional read though Josie and Liam’s journey from loss, pain and new beginnings.
How you can’t be in love with a hot rockstar, loving this woman with all his guts, unconditionally? This story completely gets me!!
