OMG I just loved this book I wished I could have just closed off the world and read it all in one sitting but the family wanted feeding and work was beckoning. I came home today determined to finish and find out how it would all end, it ending with me blubbering like a baby and my husband laughing at me. I received this ARC copy and have voluntarily written my honest review.
This is a very heartfelt story about young love, lost love and a second chance love. Can you know at a very young age that you have met your one and only? Well Leah Jones thought she would always have a thing for her brother best friend, but he was older than her and never took any notice of the little girl she way.
Leo did not have a great family life but what he did have was is great best friend’s family. Leo returns to town to start a new job and a new life, but waiting for his house to be ready to live in he moves into the Jones house. The welcome from Leah was not a friendly one and he didn’t understand why? He knew why he should not get close to her and he tried to fight the feelings towards her. He knew he was not the Love them type of guy, but there was just something about her that made him want her to be his, to love, protect and provide for.
The prologue starts in the present in 2017 with Leah remember her your carefree days in love with Leo, then we go back to 2000 and read the loving and moving story of how they fell in love with each other. By the end of the book we return to 2017 and then just forward two years to the future of 2019 for the conclusion.
Fate played a big part of both their lives and as well as the decision they made along the way, but can a true soulmate kind of love be fulfilled in the end?
This story has many twists and turns most you will not see coming but one or two you might. I found it a very moving emotional story of love, loss and destiny. This is the first book by this author that I have read and I totally enjoyed her writing style and her wonderful characters that were very relatable to normal life and emotions. I would highly recommend this book and author to anyone that likes some great depth to there reading.
