4 Stars! Crazy set of circumstances bring two broken-hearted people together and I loved it!!
Considering the title of this book, even with the disclaimer, I wasn’t quite sure how I would feel about it. Well, feel I did and it was all good.
Told from alternating first person points-of-view, this is the journey of two jilted lovers, Jenn and Shane who, by chance, are brought together. They form a friendship and eventually realize that something more is evolving between them. It was lovely to grow with them and I enjoyed the time they spent together as friends. It was a relationship that blossomed rather quickly, and considering their history, they were rather cautious of what was happening. But time was not on their side and when it comes to matters of the heart, you can’t always control how you feel, neither do you want to. I thought it was all plausible and well played out. I was rooting for these two all the way.
I felt the story was rather unique, the dialogue was fun, and the chemistry between Jenn and Shane was believable and although the steam factor was on the light side, the desire and passion they had for one another was strong. I didn’t need heated love scenes to know that these two had it bad for each other and I felt that they were meant to be. There is also heartbreak when the reality of war hits home, and the character’s struggles with what happens is well-written and was unbelievably touching. I would be remiss if I revealed the circumstances behind the tragic event.
Don’t fret, there is an HEA, and have some tissues ready, you’re going to need them. It’s a little bittersweet but very appropriate! I think if you’re looking for something different and a book that will warm your heart, then I recommend this read!
