Absolutely beautiful - one of the best yet from these amazing authors
8 November 2018
Wow! Just... wow! These authors can seriously do no wrong - this was off the charts good. 5 stars doesn't do it justice!
This was an emotional rollercoaster of a journey. Call it fate, call it determination but what started with a little bit of stalking turned into an amazing and heartbreaking journey for Charlitte and Reed. While they were both recovering from having their heart broken, they saw the world through very different eyes. Reed became Mr Pessimistic; and Charlotte was as definitely Miss Optimistic, seeing the positives in the world around her, and seeming to not let anything get to her.
They were instantly attracted to each other, but Reed put his walls up and responded aggressively and arrogantly, upsetting Charlotte which ultimately led to her getting a job with his family's company (fate I tell you!).
The push-pull that ensues has it all - I laughed at a lot of their interactions, swooned with how sweet Reed could be and how supportive and empathetic Charlotte was, felt my heart break when Reed divulged his secret and again when Charlotte chose to walk away rather than be rejected again and again. The ending was beautiful, and the Epilogue had me reaching for the tissues.
The book was completely rounded out - no loose ends, and with the Epilogue set 26yrs into the future, we really got to see what their lives were like which is something I haven't seen in any other books. Usually the epilogues will be a handful of months or years later, whereas this really focused on the crux of Reed's insecurities and gave us the ending his story needed.
Beautifully done, and I think one of my favourites, if not THE favourite, from these authors.
