About the author:
They shared since the moment they met, an intense connexion, a bond that gonna lie them forever.
In each other, they found a safe place, where their lives weren’t miserable, someone they could rely on, where both of their family failed. But as their age difference, of six years, Nolan was the big brother, always being there for her, protecting her. She idealized him and had a crush since she was nine, but he never looked at her like a possible lover, just the little girl too much perfect, mature that he had to protect from the world.
This story is told from a dual POV, alternating between the past (Brooklyn’s memories, childhood) and present.
But one day, he left her, with only a letter explaining that he was following his dreams, to become a writer.
During six years, he never looked back or stayed in touch with Brooklyn. He was becoming famous and he was trapped into this place that she thought that she would never leave.
At the age of eighteen, Little B, got through a lot, with a family that didn’t acknowledge her, she tried to move on from both the rejection of her parents and especially Nolan, who left her and taking the little B with him.
She wasn’t expecting a relationship and was totally honest with her situation ; she enjoyed sex and she was having a life without too much complications, until Nolan’s return.
His return provoked a rush of emotions, with the realization that Little B grew up to a beautiful woman, hurt by life. The past and the present collided leading Nolan more confused than ever, with feelings that he would never expected, buried deep down. The place, his mother and Brooklyn was a reminded of why he left but with all the success he had, his life in NY with his girlfriend, he felt empty, like something in his soul was missing.
Through the memories of Little B, we could see how much these two were connected, how she was completely in love with him, his expectations and aspirations, how he felt not worthy at all of her, because she has a big heart, a maturity for her young age. They were comforting each other, bared their souls. We saw that Brooklyn was hurting because she couldn’t have him as a boyfriend. Always be the little sister.
These moments from their past helped us to comprehend tbe present. Now they both have different lives, totally opposite. One was achieving his dreams and the other was kind of lost, searching for a future.All along the book, I was completely hooked, turning frantically the pages on my kindle, experiencing every moment, through happiness, pain, love, fight. I really love the banter between the characters. They were honest, and even on bad and hard times, there was this straightforwardness, very existing and important. Even if that their words could hurt one another, there was no bullshit or lies, just unsaid things by fear of the rejection.
And holy cow, Nolan was more than intense, he has this strength to fight for what he believes and coming back here and see that he failed and hurting Little B was unbearable. He knew that he messed up and destroyed her. He wanted to be in her life again but at this time, they were just strangers who shared a past.
But he was confused and scared by his feelings melting with his anger towards his mother. Playing hot and cold, when Brooklyn was admitting that she was still in love with him.
She could run straight to his arms but she was on her defenses, wary and let him know that he couldn’t act like that and messing up with her head. I loved that she was tough and the departure of Big No harden her.Obviously there was this intense and sexual tension, and it was smoking hot!Just wow, their story was passionate, addictive, with his intensity of their feelings which was transcendent. Despite the hurdles and the years, they fought for what they have, but with Nolan’s girlfriend and Little B rejection’s issues, and a lot of catching up about each other’s lives, nothing was easy, everything was scary. Some drama wasn’t necessary at the end of the book but it worked for me, but at some point I was scared about the following events.
We didn’t have much sex scenes in the beginning, but when we have these parts, I could fully feel how much powerful they were connected, as one. ** SWOON and BLUSHES a lot **
I really enjoyed this story about this two soulmates, starting by being best friends to lovers, with a very complicated statuts, with a girl who was fully aware of her feelings, totally realistic to her situation, at the time so determined but afraid of her future. And that about Nolan? I think I found my new book boyfriend !!! He was sometimes an ass, but know to admit when he was wrong and apologize.
You made me feel, Stephanie Witter, and I’m bold enough to say it : Six Years is definitely my favorite and you have really outdone yourself here.
You should be proud because your baby is stunning!
