“Those moments of loss and death were hell on the soul; no amount of love or life could make the pain less hurtful, but they were the moments that carried you through, gave you strength to fight another day.”
I am always a little nervous starting a new book from a new author who’s work isn’t the typical book I read. With nothing but a single quote, I decided to give it a go, boy was I surprised.
Kate is a Very promising author, and I for one am very excited to follow along with her journey.
“We all suffer from scars of torment. Some are just made more visible than others.”
Then he meets her…..
“Standing on the ledge of the arched concrete bridge, arms spread wide, she looked like a bird about to take flight. I probably would have taken more time to admire the auburn curls whipping around her upturned face, the absolute freedom she seemed to embody in that moment, had it not looked like she was about to jump.”
The more he pulls away, the more she shows up and reinforces that she can be his friend. She is determined to remind him just how fun life can be and that love can come crashing through when you least expect it.
“I inhaled it on a sharp breath and tried to remind myself of all the reasons I didn’t need to get involved with her. But one nagging question kept running through my head: Who is this girl, and what is she doing to me?”
I guess you will have to pick it up to find out 😉
“Even if someone had handed me a map, shown me the way back to life without Willow, I wouldn’t have redirected my course. I wouldn’t have changed a damn thing. That’s the funny thing about love. Sometimes you’re head over heels long before you’ve even have the chance to register the fall.”
Kate Givans has a wonderful way of making you empathize with the characters, makes you believe their stories and leaves you crazy with frustration at waiting for the next installment.I actually had a few days break between finishing the story and actually getting the review in place,my original review was;
“He was… she’s awww… And now he ….. But she’s being …. Cow! ;)”
