One of the best books I’ve read from this category. I loved it right from the first page. Lately, I haven’t found any books that I enjoyed as much as this one. Books are more and more similar each day and it takes a lot of effort and dedication to make them stand out. This book is fantastic without a shadow of a doubt.
The plot is really, really interesting. I loved the prologue as it gives as an insight in Chase’s life. The prologue is not that long, but it makes us understand better how and when Chase changed and what determined those changes. It is an invaluable addition to the book. The book is also complex with a great number of characters which are not necessarily pointless as we can see the main characters interact with them and it aids us to discover new things about by observing their social interactions.
The world described in this book is the world all of us live in. The story is a bit sad (still a HEA, don’t worry), but it is important to see how people live and go on despite everything that has happened to them. Regret is one of the main motifs of the story.
Kay is definitely one of the most interesting characters I’ve ‘met”this year. I felt so sorry for her because she did not deserve what happened to her. I cannot believe that some parents can be so cruel and blind. I loved the fact that despite everything she managed to survive, I admire her for living where she was living. I don’t think I could do it and I really hope that I do not have to find out. I am really glad that she gave Chase a chance. They are very different and come from two different worlds, but at the end of the day they are perfect for one another. They both need someone who understand their past and their sorrow.
Chase is definitely troubled by his past. The fact that he resembles his father so much doesn’t help him at all, if anything it makes things a lot harder. I know that I’ve said this before, but I cannot understand some parents. I mean seriously? How can you call yourself a parent and throw you child out without thinking twice about it. I liked him before he changed because underneath it all it was clear that he was a good person, but I have to admit that I like him better after he the change took place. Meeting Kay was the best thing that ever happened to him.
Kay and Chase’s relationship is easy. They are in perfect sync. You rarely see people so in sync with each other. They quickly became friends and then lovers, but I did not get the feeling that they were rushing into anything. It seemed logical. It was meant to be.
Overall, the book is amazing and you’d have to be a fool to skip it.
From me: 4/5
