* Thanks to the author who gave me a free e-copy of this story in exchange for an honest review. *
After feeling as though she’s been suffocated by her family and everything around her in her hometown of Georgia, Quinnlan Reynolds escapes this oppression to the lively busy state of New York in order to start over and live her dreams. After being heartbroken by Quinn, Jonah Walker left everything behind in Georgia in search of something that would suppress all of his pain. After a few years, both return trying to fix what they couldn’t before, including their relationship with one another. One tragic event however leads one of them to become buried in their demons it becomes more difficult as that one person becomes haunted by those of the past and present.
A testament of true love and will , this book. I really did find myself loving this book. Quinn and Jonah are both such tortured souls and it’s heartbreaking to see them suffering. I mean yes they do have their issues, but it is clear as day that they both still want one another to everyone who is around them. Throughout the book, there are snippets of the events in the past that led to the both of them leaving town. These snippets are really interesting and do help you to understand everything that goes on in the book. Out of all of the characters, I really do feel for Quinn and I understand her feelings completely. It really is hard to let people in after some tramatizing events. I’m glad though that she eventually found it in herself to tell everyone she loves. Jonah is such a sweetheart of a guy, although there were parts in the book I didn’t particularly enjoy reading about him, he was such a charmer and so sweet to Quinn. He would’ve done anything for her, anything. I also loved his brothers, Quinn’s cousin and also her dad. Jonah’s brothers had such different personalities and I wish there were interactions between them and Quinn. Also, I loved Quinn’s cousin since he was so protective of her and loved her with every bit of his soul. Her father; I was glad that were able to come to an agreement of trying to move on with their lives and try to rebuild it together.
Second chances are sometimes necessary The whole time I was reading this book, I was thinking that both Jonah, Quinn, Quinn’s father, and others were all getting second chances to fix what was already broken and sometimes in life, second chances are needed in order to move on and create something new.
In order to show the real you, you need to at times break down your walls and let people in otherwise, you wouldn’t truly be living At times, it is hard and it does hurt, but in order to help you create a life there are times when you need certain people in your life to help you and at the end of the day, you will find who those people are who will forge ahead with you.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and liked the messages that were ingrained in it.
