Forever : A lobster Kind of love was a beautiful, moving and sweet story about two people, both grieving and trying to heal from their loss, reunited by circumstances of life. I really don’t know what to expect from this book; but I was taken by surprise, getting to love it, as its history has unfolded.
This story could be falling into pathos, with two characters, Lynda and Ryan; one was grieving the death of her husband and son and the other a seaman who survives a tragic accident, only to find out paralyzed, but it wasn’t! The plot was brilliant, with a sincerity, and a lightness that makes the story so endearing and so easy to love.
After his reeducation, Ryan needed to adjust to his new life, where he has no idea gonna lead him. And then, the parts about his doubts, the realization that we would never walk again, the loss of all he had, was moving. He was a fighter and a survivor. He wasn’t wallowing in self pity, being surrounded by family and medical staff, proving that he could make it, with a lot of training, but life’s worth it.
Lydia was hiring as a nurse. Seeing how she had to deal with the pain, sorrow was heartbreaking. Having Ryan as a client was a beginning of something new. Like they clicked.
She was a fighter too, definitely wanted to move on, but the wounds were still deeply opened. She has no idea how she’s gonna survive.
The magic happened when she came to this town, where people were caring for each other and stick together.
Lydia and Ryan have a great and entertaining banter. I liked their sarcastic and humorous tone, the way I testified the evolution of their relationship; from nurse-client, to friends and then as a couple.
Lydia was definitely struggling to remain professional, but could she pass the opportunity for a second chance at love?
It wasn’t like insta love; but more as they were healing together, helped each other along the path to a better life. They were strong together.
I couldn’t put it down, totally enhanced by their story, with lovers reunited by a forever lobster kind of love! It was the perfect blend of sexy and funny moments, emotional ones, and a great off the charts chemistry!
