My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure what to think about this book. It’s unlike any other romance I’ve ever read before. It begins with the end of a relationship between the Hero and Heroine. The book is about them moving on with their lives…apart. And that’s just the beginning! But, I kept an open mind, and kept on reading.
Luke and Lila were happy together…..until they weren’t. They decided they weren’t good together, that they wanted different things from life, and split up. They each went their separate ways and tried to get on with their lives. But that was easier said than done.
This book took everything that I expected from a romance and blew it out of the water. This book had none of the usual elements of a romance, but still managed to come out with a HEA. Right from the beginning, even when they were in the process of separating their lives from one another, I could tell they belonged together. There were so many emotions that went through me while reading this book, that it took a while to sort through them all: frustration, hurt, and finally, joy. Both Luke and Lila had many issues that they had to work through to be able to be together, but this book just drives home the point, true love conquers all, but only if you work at it!
and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she loves cats, reading,
Shakespeare, and Poe.She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high
sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, Marjorie, and Bob; and their
mastiff, Henry.Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of
life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers
have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming
from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the
tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look
at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and
powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that
novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing
a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That
could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows
she’s done her job.
Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of
her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants
them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of
the realm of possibility.
