The book offers so much to the reader. You have Rawson, a man who has suffered the worst losses a person can experience. The life he leads following those losses leads him to a less than idyllic life. Ultimately, one decision sends him into the ever after. He’s left in a battle between Heaven and Hell. More importantly he’s left in a battle with himself, his memories, and his emotions.
Enter Ysabelle, a woman who has faced her fair share of challenges in her life but is a beautiful, caring soul. She’s been on the brink of death more than once and both of those situations left her tied to Rawson. She doesn’t know she’s tied to him because of her brushes with death. She does known that the mysterious stranger that lives in her building intrigues her and she tries to figure out why.
Rawson and Ysabelle are drawn to one another, for reasons they don’t understand. They are both faced with dealing with their past all while trying to stay in the present. Oath, Melanie and Seth are the closets people to Rawson and Ysabelle respectively. All of them serve to help support and guide their friends through everything they go through.
This book has everything. It is funny, thought-provoking, frustrating, happy, sad and unbelievable. Without giving detailed spoilers, because of certain factors in my life, upon reaching a certain point in the book, until I finished it, I felt as though I had stopped breathing because I had been emotionally gutted. Yes, this is definitely a book requiring a tissue or two. In my case it could have been a box! Despite my visceral reaction I cannot praise this book enough. This book was fantastically entertaining until I became so emotionally overwhelmed I wept. I cannot recommend this book to people enough; it is one of the most beautiful books I have read in my life.
Rawson is a man who has lived a life of unmeasurable happiness at times, and the lowest point of tragedy you could ever face. All of this before he even lost his life. But then, somehow he’s brought back along with his guardian angel, Oath. In his mind, his death was a valid one and he’s done enough wrong that he doesn’t deserve to go to a better place. Why can’t he just be shipped to Hell already? He doesn’t even know if he truly believes in Heaven after all that was taken away from him when he was alive. When he died he wasn’t even recognizable to himself. Now he has to rehash everything yet again and for what? What can he really gain from all of this? He thinks he knows where he belongs.
Ysabelle is a young woman who has struggled through life, yet managed to be brought back from death a few times. She doesn't know what her purpose is in the world, only that she wants to give what she feels is right to others. Compassion, understanding, and even love. She believes in a higher power and knows that the reasons for her still being apart of this world is for a reason. Those reasons though are unknown to her. Or so she thinks. How can her life change yet again and will she get answers to all her questions?
There are two moments in both characters lives where they have been put together unbeknownst to them. They have no clue that what happens from one particular moment and forward will not only change their roles in the world, but those around them. How scary is that? They meet once again and the journey that unfolds is a breathtaking roller coaster that has you asking a million questions.
When I was done with this book, I was emotionally drained, my face hurt from all the tears, my chest ached and I had to use a hand towel for my nose because the tissues weren’t enough through my emotional ride. I swear I felt everything they felt, my heart ached for every rough moment, made my heart soar for every positive moment and made me laugh at the rather creative and clever characters that join this duo. Trust me when I say I’ve never read a book that tackles a spiritual theme quite like this. In the end, I was a hot mess but thankful for it. Because I found myself processing emotions I didn’t think I still had in regards to life and loss. With each book Alora shares with us you can see her dedication to her characters, their stories and her readers. She blows us away with the journey we share with them and leaves us wanting more. This is by far one of the best books I’ve ever read. I encourage you to pick this book up! Embrace it, keep an open mind and overall, find peace. Because what you may expect, could be shattered.
Well done my friend, well done!
I was excited when I realized I might have some time to slowly read this and delve into it. It was such a different story than I've ever heard, read, or thought Alora might write. A very interesting concept that I do not want to give away. It was a very slow build, the kind that burns in your gut until it makes it's way up your stomach and then eventually into your throat. There is nothing wrong with this at all, that was just the pacing for me.
I enjoyed Oath's character the most. I liked her gift and humor.
In some ways, because I'm such a romantic at heart, I would have loved to have seen more of that -- but at the core of this, this was Rawson's story, and it was told very thoroughly. I appreciate that.
I think this was her first paranormal story, and I think it's pretty awesome she could come up with such an interesting backstory. Way to go, Alora!
Second chances. How many of us will ever actually get that? How much pain and suffering does one need to go through to earn such a gift. Alora Kate delivers a heart-wrenching story about just that. This paranormal novel with a splash of romance will keep you reading from start to finish in one sitting just to find out what happens next. I fell in love with the characters and thought the storyline was solid and very well thought out. I recommend this book to anyone who believes in soul mates and happily ever afters.
