I knew the moment I read the blurb that this book was going to be memorable. And it definitely was.
A few days after reading it, it was still on my mind; Ames and Mila literally stole my heart.
How from darkness, you could find someone who can complete you, in the unexpected places? How after the pain comes finally happiness?
This is definitely the kind of stories I’m looking for. The ones that made me feel, giving me goosebumps and chills but mostly, the butterflies.Their story totally made me feel how good it is to fall in love, to be in love, for a moment, just hanging on, like time has stopped and I was just living vicariously through them.
Don’t get me wrong, this is not flowers and chocolate, the road for happiness is far from being easy, but this encounter between two tortured souls will change their lives forever. Sometimes things happen for a reason, more likely to reunite them. Just one moment, one look. I was holding my breath.
Mila is the kind of person to see the bright side of things, enthusiastic and genuine, she has this incredible way to make people gravitate around her. She is magnetic and so giving. Helping others without expecting nothing in return. She is still mourning but she has the way to not let the pain eating her, definitely more like living with it.
Ames… le sigh. From hot and cold to definitely something more. The broody man at first confused and in denial about his feelings that brought with Mila’s encounter, just won my heart. Very close to this family, protective and always being helpful and kind, just a man after my own heart.
In spite of the things I told before about the main characters, they are far from perfect, but their flaws, imperfections, well their whole being made me just fall in love with them. Two people who know about loss and recognize each other’s souls, attracted by magnets. Time wasn’t on their side. A few weeks to make their feelings all over the place, a second chance to find love, to feel something else than pain or sorrow.
I can’t tell you more about the storyline because it’s something you should discover by yourself. To let you feel and being overwhelmed. The power of words were so intense, but with a bit of lightness in between. Ethereal and so beautifully written.
I couldn’t put it down.
It’s a bit melancholic and sad at times, but I adored this second chance romance. All the feels, this book is absolutely fantastic and incredibly romantic.Whitney Barbetti has a way with words, a way to pull you in from the first lines and you just don’t want to let it go.
This is the kind of story that stays with you for a long time. As you might guess I have a crush on this book. I smiled, I swooned and I almost cried. And I read the last three chapters, like 5 times. Well, it’s a crush. Definitely. Highly recommended!
