Title: Becoming (Limitless novel #3)
Author: Danielle Ione
Lily was all of the above. She spent her entire life fighting the person she truly was inside. Lily waged a war on her reflection, hating the things she saw that no one else could. She refused to accept that she was different in hopes that one day, things would change, that she would be normal. And it wasn’t until Cambria Miller came into her life, that she started to realize that loving yourself, let you see the beauty in the imperfections.
Cambria let the world see what they wanted; the social butterfly, the logical girl, the one everyone relied on. But no one saw what was underneath it all; the loneliness, the depression, the hurt that was caused by losing the one you love. Since the death of her girlfriend, Cambria refused to move forward, letting herself live in a world filled with memories of what she had lost. But the day Lily became apart of the equation, that all stopped. The lines she had set blurred until all she could see what the girl she wanted so desperately, despite the fear, the memories, and the shattered heart.
As they come together on the broken path, supporting each other in the journey of discovery; the prospects of their future shatters in a tangled web of lies. Cambria and Lily are faced with the destruction of Cambria’s past, leaving them wondering if they bond they had was strong enough to survive.
Becoming is part of the Limitless standalone series. Each book can be read individually, but it is encouraged to read them in order to gain the best experience.
I’m a mama of an amazing set of twins, and a wife to a pretty cool dude. I live off of coffee, books, and sarcasm. I mean, there’s no other way to live, is there? I’m not a romantic person, not really anyway. So I always find it humorous that I only read and write romance, as if it were ingrained in me. My addiction to reading turned into a love for writing. And in all reality, writing is what keeps me sane. Any spare moment I have in my entirely too crazy life, I spend spilling the words from my head onto paper.
Book 3 in the limitless series, Becoming is Lily and Cambria’s story. Heartbreaking and beautifully written, this story about one confused girl and another girl who was deeply hurting by her past was an emotional journey.
Lily is confused, being attracted to women but not willing to open up, is searching a way to move on from a tragedy, when she was attacked by her ex-boyfriend. Thanks to the help of her friends, she met Cambria, who quickly became her friend, a relationship with blurred lines and intense sexual tension.
Cambria wasn’t able to move on from her own tragedy, but with Lily, everything gets better, brighter. Aware of Lily’s reluctance to truly show to the world who she really is, she was patient and each moment with her was a light in her darkness, she was giving her hope. As the story unfold, we understand Cambria’s issues and the present and the past collided in a destructive way.
As usual, the thread is powerful, gut-wrenching and once again, Lily moved me, through her fears, sorrow and pain. They were two broken souls who became whole together. Healing together. I really appreciated how the author managed to entwine each characters’ stories, to bring such emotions.
Each book has it way to show how limitless love can be and if you fight for it, it can give you the most beautiful stories. just straight to the heart. I have one question : is there a story about Matty or Nixon?? I really hope so!
