53 Letters For My Lover Kindle Edition
Shayda Hijazi - the perfect wife, the perfect mother, the perfect daughter. For thirty-three years, she has played by the rules, swallowing secrets, burying dreams and doing whatever it takes to anchor her family. Shayda Hijazi is about to become her own worst enemy.
Troy Heathgate - untamed, exhilarating, dangerous; a man who does exactly as he pleases. Life bends to his will. Until he comes across the one thing he would give it all up for, but can never have.
Born on the same day in opposite corners of the world, their lives collide. And nothing is ever the same again.
Spanning three decades, 53 Letters for My Lover is an intimate exploration of love, loyalty, passion, betrayal, and the human journey for hope, happiness and redemption.

A beautifully told story of two star crossed lovers.
Who learn to "fly damn it, fly".
Troy is my new book bf. Hot, sexy, loving, determined and so in sync with his love.
Shayda has to stay or go?
I held off reading this as I thought it would be heartbreaking to read.
Don't delay, it's worth the read. It's about living life to the fullest.

I wanted to hate Troy so much. He seemed like the typical bad boy who thought the world belonged to him and he could have anything and anyone he wanted. But I needed so little to fall in love with him. How could I not? He completely transformed Shayda. Made her a different person – positive and energetic. As if he was giving her wings to fly just like the butterflies that started everything. Their scenes were so full of love, romance and passion that my heart melted from this cocktail of emotions. The sceneries were described with such detail that I felt like I was living in this word and experiencing every single thing with them.
This is the 3rd book I‘ve read by this author and there is some kind of magic in her words. I can’t fathom it – everything is written with such simplicity and passion that you could feel it to the last detail. There were lots of hot scenes in this book and although I’m not a big fan of too much sex in a book there was some kind of intimacy in those scenes. Both of them kind of opened up to each other in those moments little by little. The ending was so tense and with so many emotions I had tears in my eyes by the end.
I loved that the husband character – Hafez was not made the villain in this story. Yes, they had issues which caused the whole love story between Troy and Shayda to unfold, but his character was a positive one by the end and I sympathized with him. I even hope she writes his story one day.
Beautiful, emotional and enthralling story, showing that the world is not always black and white. The lines are blurred sometimes and the things considered wrong could be those to change your life and make you live it happily and without regrets. I can’t wait to read the short story with Troys’s POV and hear his voice. He was such a remarkable male character <3
I've had this one on my kindle for a while, I felt reluctant to start it because I have loved all Leylah Attar's books and didn't want it to come to an end.
This is a slow burn romance, where both parties try to fight their attraction because Shayda is married, and they both place value in that commitment. That sounds strange to say in a book about cheating, but if you read it you will understand. From the moment they meet Troy and Shayda feel a connection, but he seems to be a playboy and she the happily married woman. appearances can be deceiving.
Its not an easy read, she doesn't cheat because she is in an unhappy or abusive relationship, she doesn't hate her husband. It takes a long time to reach a happily ever after for these characters. Life isn't always black and white and the book touches on difficult topics and the grey areas around love and how much love we have to offer. A beautifully intense story.
Troy and Shayda are drawn to one another. When they were together, it was like magic, incomparable to your average love story, but when they were apart, it was achingly painful. These two had me in knots, thinking obsessively about the book and I almost couldn't bear to continue.
"You're dangerous. And you leave bruises. And your words disrobe me, and your kisses destroy me."
I needed some hand holding to progress, but I am so glad I continued. What these two go through in their lives is gritty, difficult but quite wonderful.
"I lift the bed sheet over our heads, letting the light filter through the soft cotton, while we hold hands in our private little fort."
I couldn't ever predict what was round the corner for these two, their families and where the journey would end. I am captivated by the story that Leylah Attar created. Her writing is seamless, exotic and conjures every scene so perfectly in your mind. I cried after closing the book, not during the book. The emotions evoked by this read leave me in admiration of this experience and the characters.

Beautiful, emotional and EPIC is the only way I can describe this story.
Set over a period of 18 or so years...it tells the love story of Iranian born Shayda and Troy ..
Sent to Canada for a better life, nothing for Shayda is simple, she looks for a sign where her path will take her. Instead, an arranged marriage to Hafez is made for her by her family.
Hafez is withdrawn at times and their marriage starts without passion. He's away from home a lot.
He is a good man, a good husband but because of things he has experienced as a child he is left emotional detached.
When Shayda first meets Troy, an up and coming business tycoon, seductor, a man who has everything....except the one thing he wants...her..Shayda.
Shayda stays in the background watching....but Troy has seen her and is totally mesmerized by her.
Choices, guilt... whilst we see their relationship slowly develop throughout the years into something beautiful we still see the pain, the feelings that pulls them closer and also apart.
When she finally makes a choice will devastating events change everything?
This is a very touching heartfelt story, beautifully written.
Its a brave story to write and I think thats what touched me so much.
I read such a mixture of genres, that when I come across a story like this, one that makes me feel the way I felt.....I know thats the reason I love reading so much.
There were subjects that were painful, heartbreaking but the author had me consumed into their story.
It should be made into a film..
I cried, I smiled, I cheered....I loved it.
Shayda and a Troys love story will stay with me for a long time..
I loved Shayda, she is a fighter, despite everything that happens to her and she stands by her family, even though she can see a different life within reach. I was routing for her all the way through, I wanted her to find happiness. Troy Heathgate is a cocky, successful man, who can have whatever and whoever he wants…except the one person he really wants. I did like him and felt for him throughout the story. I loved the way Leylah weaved the other characters into the story and their lives, crossing in and out, some I loved, some I despised but that is how a good book should make you feel.
This is a really good book and on you should definitely read.
