*ARC Provided for an Honest Review*
If I had saved my tears it would be in a huge pail right now. This is only the second time in my history of reading that I encountered plots like this. I don't want to say much aside from the fact that the book was perfect at the same time heart breaking.
I absolutely forgot what the book was about before I started reading. I know I read its blurb before I went out of town and I don't know why I completely forgot it. Like, I have no recollection of what it is about aside from the Hero's name. So I said, whatever I'll just carry on and read it. I thought it was the perfect second chance romance only to find my world collapse when I got to the twist. I could not, for the life of me, save myself from the tears that started to come out of my eyes. Since that part onwards, I was a mess. No Joke, When I woke up the next day after reading the book my eyes felt so heavy and they were so thick.
Honestly, I did not read the first book on this series because I knew I would hurt but I think the hurt I endured in this book is so much more painful than if I had read the first one. I felt real pain and this is why I am giving this book the 5 stars it deserves.
Joel and Ellie were exceptional characters. Ellie's life was so heavy at the same time sad while Joel is living his life to the fullest. The love story was perfect, I thought this book was very well written and the aftermath was so inspiring that I had to hold my kindle for a minute and hug it so tight when I finished it. I love this book. I don't know how to congratulate Lauren anymore than praising this.
