SPEECHLESS…this story left me speechless with my HEART pounding! It’s so so GOOD!
This is not just a romantic story! It is so much more! I really feel as though I am going through this with Layla. (Love her name Btw) Her courage, awkwardness, insecurities and at times her loneliness all got to me. I can see why so many people are giving this all the stars! This is simply outstanding! I usually don’t go for book with too much realism. Because it’s a book and I want to escape. But this one just touched my heartstrings.
Kellan was simply wonderful! I want every man to be like him! Kind, thoughtful and sexy all rolled into one package. He does and says the most wonderful thing to and for Layla in this story. I love his never give up attitude!
The secondary characters deserve a mention. Her parents…well her mother drove me crazy..she almost seemed like a “real” mom. But Even crazy has its reasons. Let’s talk Russell! I almost love Russell as much as I do Kellan!! Best brother ever! Check! Best friend ever! Check! Full of humor and love for his family! Check! check! There is Nothing not to like about this man!
This isn’t my first book by this author but I think it’s her best that I have read by her. This is a little different from what she usually writes but like I said….better! This hits a lot of nails right on the head. Nothing is shy-ed away from. It’s perfect and I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend to women and men.
Very lovely and touching!
