5-Stars Review

I have read a lot of books, I've read books I loved, books I cried over, books that have awed me, books I adored, books I hated, those I couldn't even stand to finish reading, in short I have had a lot of different reading experiences and I cherish them all. This book, though, was an entirely unique experience for me. I loved the writing style, the story was good two, characters were just amazing, but what made it unique was the way it flowed, so smoothly and naturally, it was simply beautiful. It was so real for me that I felt everything the characters were going through. It was almost surreal. I very much enjoyed reading it and I will be reading more from this author. I love it when I find someone new, a hidden-jem of an author. ;)

Rachel is an author, she has been divorced for a couple of years now but her ex-husband left scars that have not healed yet. Derek has his own scars, he is a widower who is not yet over his wife. They both are fighting their pasts in their own ways. What started as a friendship between the two soon turns into something much more. As unlikely as it seems but sometimes two broken souls make a perfect whole. It's their journey, it's a story which will keep you captivated from the beginning until the very end. Now I can't wait to read book 2.
