*****5 emotionally RAW stars*****
This has been a tough book for me to review. I finished it a few days ago, and I've had to sit on it a while. This story affected me so deeply that I haven't been able to organize my thoughts enough to write them down. You know those stories that touch your soul? The ones that make you feel emotions that are so raw they cause you physical pain? This was one of those for me. I have lived many of the experiences in this book, which is why it affected me the way it did. Adriana's writing is beautiful. She is one of those authors that writes characters that are so REAL to the reader. You can hear their thoughts, feel their feelings, and you really get to know them, inside and out.
As usual, I won't recap the book for you. I want you to dive into a story without any preconceived notions from me. But if you're a reader that follows my blog and trusts my recommendations, then you should pick this one up as soon as it's available. You won't be disappointed. As much as this story broke me, it put me back together beautifully. For those of you that read because you love to FEEL, this is a great book for you. Happy reading! XO
Here's the blurb:
Falling in love is easy.
Falling out of love is the hardest thing in the world.
And Elin and Ty Whitt are terrible at it.
The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build.
Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible.
Through the tears, the second-guesses, the memories of a life built together, the world keeps spinning. With each turn comes clarity and hope—sometimes in the form of a pair of muddy boots by the back door or from the words of a wise friend.
When Ty shows back up with a new found determination to put his family back together, Elin's torn between the fights of the past and the possibility of a new start. This is the man that holds her heart, the man she loves beyond anything else. But this is also the one person in the world that can cause her the most pain.
Life’s not always easy. Love’s not for the faint of heart. But with life comes lessons and Ty and Elin have the scars to prove it. But it's their love written in those scars that will hold them together … or break them apart.
