There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.
This is ours.
The cardinal rule of friendship is you don’t mess with your friend’s sister. That goes double when she’s his little sister.
It was just supposed to be fun. She wasn’t supposed to end up being the love of my life. And I definitely wasn’t supposed to break her heart.
Ainsley is a wedding dress designer. That should’ve been a warning that she’s a hopeless romantic. That should’ve clued me in that she believes love conquers all.
But there are some things that love can’t fix. I’m one of them.
She thinks love is the answer.
But love is the reason I let her go.
This is one of those books you read and you don’t forget. The storyline is beyond words. It’s next level. It’s so emotional, so deep, so beautiful, so hopeful. I can’t stop thinking about it. I can’t move on. One of the BEST BOOKS OF 2019! A must read. Truly unforgettable.
I am a wreck after reading this book. Every time I think of these characters I start crying—and it’s not sad tears, it’s tears because my heart feels so much, it feels so full, it’s almost bursting. These characters became a part of me. I pulled so hard for them as I was reading, wanted everything to work out, and just the thought of Rhett and Ainsley squeezes my heart. Their story is such an intense journey. A story full of angst and heartache and beauty and hope and love. LOVE LOVE LOVEEEE! Going into this I didn’t expect all that. In fact, I’m not sure what I was expecting. But this was so much more than I ever could have dreamed.
Prescott Lane writes with PURE heart and an intensity that stole my breath. Every word was BIG and DEEP and REAL. I was immersed in the detail of the characters, consumed with their lives right from the start, and my emotional connection to Rhett and Ainsely, Brody and Skye was immediate. These characters are wholly lovable. They’re the kind of characters you want to be friends with, the kind you want to see achieve every hope, dream, want, and need.
From the first word (our hero) Rhett’s personality bursts off page. He’s so charming, so swoony, so sexy. But more than that, this guy is smart and funny, caring and nurturing, pure and good, and ugh! I want to start crying again because I just can’t handle the way I LOVE him. I love him in away that words can’t describe.
Rhett and Ainsley are soulmates. They know each other because Ainsley’s brother (Brody) is Rhett’s best friend. This is the “falling for your best friend’s sister” trope. BUT, if you’re expecting just that, you’re going to be SURPRISED. This romance is so much MORE! The twist is one I didn’t see coming. It hit me like a tsunami. It was INTENSE. Rhett and Ainsley’s road to love, to life, is bumpy, hard, and all consuming.
These characters go through MAJOR things! Things I can’t even imagine having to go through! It broke me. Reading as they climbed these obstacles was indescribable. And honestly, this story is more than I can ever really say. It’s deep. It’s about accepting life as it comes, about self love, self acceptance, unconditional love. It’s about living life to the fullest no matter the situation, about making life your bitch. LOL! It’s breathtaking, moving, and I felt every word, every moment. I truly lived (yes, lived, and loved) these characters.
Overall, I don’t know what more I can say. I just LOVED this book. I really hope you take a chance on it! It’s not your traditional romance novel, it’s more. So much MORE. The realness, the rawness, the heart, the love… It’s wow! A top read for me. A MUST READ. A favorite of 2019! I can’t recommend it enough.
