This story is one of finding out who your true self is alone before you can be in a relationship. You have to be able to love yourself before you can commit to another person. The issue of family is a big theme in this book as well. Willow and Hunter both come from a family situation that is less than ideal. Sometimes your friends become your "family" when your blood is no where to be found. I loved that Willow's sister and Hunter's brothers all become a family unit together. They were a key component in helping Hunter and Willow find their way back to each other.
This story was heartbreaking but so well written. I've never experienced anyone with these disorders, but the author painted such a vivid picture of what they were going through that I feel as though I've experienced it. These are strong characters and a family that I fell in love with. I can't wait for the other books from this family! And of course I hope that we will get a chance to see where Willow and Hunter are down the road since they still have a journey ahead of them.
I can't possibly explain how reading this heals a person but I'm going to try.
I love reading. I read because I dream of the perfect romance. I long for the lives of spontaneous gifts, flowers, and proofs of "love". I think I feel more of Willow than most people could. I wasn't abandoned as a child. It just felt like I was. My parents had to focus on my terminally ill brother and I became an afterthought. The pain in this book is real and it hurts.
The beauty is incredible. Most romances are the idealistic meet cute and then some mild turbulence and bam HEA. However, real life isn't so clean. Real life isn't so perfect. Yes, I read to escape or dream but this book gave me an odd sense of hope.
In a world where the motto is "love cures all", it's hard to be damaged in love. You see beautiful representations of what it should be. You should be cured. You shouldn't be lost in a fog of despair. You shouldn't need more...but reality isn't the same.
This book gives hope to those lost. It gave hope to a woman lost in a fog of despair who loves dearly but can't help thinking she missed the bus. It is a healing story and guess what...it's okay to be "broken."
I cried and loved every minute of their heartache and heartbreak. It's funny how in the beginning I wasn't sure I would connect with two very different from me characters...guess that joke was on me. You don't need to suffer from a disorder or a fear to connect to these characters. They connect to your insecurities and your fears and its almost cathartic the release it causes.
So my sappy, happy, sad story aside...it's an incredible book. And even though it ends better than I hoped, I'm still fighting tears. It was just perfect.
My only complaint is that I wanted more in an epilogue! But I hear there's more to come so I'll be here waiting impatiently. It was a great cast of characters here and I can't wait to meet up with them again soon!
Willow is a woman whose parents would abandon her and her sister while they traveled the world, leaving the siblings lost and confused. This childhood trauma has lead to her suffering from a constant state of flux, bouncing between emotions on a rollercoaster of feelings that she cannot control. Hunter lost his parents in 9/11 leaving a young boy not only parentless but also with no sense of safety in the world. He is agoraphobic and in constant search of a connection and making them in the wrong ways.
Claudia's story steeps you in these character's feelings in such a way that readers will be able to experience and relate to their disconcerted, jumbled mental states. I'm not a huge fan of angst but as Willow and Hunter fall for each, yet are unable to fully connect, Ms. Burgoa writing forces the reader to sink into the lives of her leads. In a deft balancing act, Ms. Burgoa gives readers a breath of air and levity so that you aren't overwhelmed and yet can remain invested in what happens as Willow and Hunter's journeys of self realization and healing blooms.
A wonderful read full of very real life people.
