I finished reading this into the early hours and I’ve now found myself a little in awe of Christine Brae.

I wish I had the ability to articulate just how much I loved this book but I don’t want to give anything away!

It’s not often a book can make me ugly cry but this was most definitely one of them, this has such a punch, it hit me in all the feels. Front, row and centre.

I found myself invested and thought I knew exactly where this story was going. I had all these theories as I began reading, and so I started making notes. Although I was correct with some aspects, there is a twist even I didn’t see coming. Not until the very moment it happened. And let’s just say it sent me through the ringer.

The English-isms of Simon were bloody brilliant, being from England I couldn’t help but resonate with him and love his character.

Tessa is a writer and puts on a facade for the sake of her readers, and even her friends. Hiding her insecurities. But as the story evolves she really begins to come into her own, her true feelings surface and the tragedies of her past are revealed.

It’s important to live for the now, and love to the fullest. Learning new things and travelling to new cities is one way to do this. Another is to open your heart to meeting new people and let their lives change yours.

This is most definitely bookshelf worthy and I’ve added it to my paperback wish list.

Don’t miss out, grab yourself a copy today.
