“Every scar means you were stronger than whatever tried to beat you.”
This has been an amazing read week for me, after having a drought of 5 stars, this week I have had quite a few and this was an amazing read to end the run with. This is the first book in a duet and by the end of this one you will be clamouring for the next one. Anyone that knows me knows that I crave emotion in my reads, that emotional connection to the characters as well as a well written book, and this one ticked all those boxes. Monica James delivered and then some. This week seems to have been a weepie week, how my tear ducts still have any tears left is a miracle in itself and whatever was left, this book drained. This book is EMOTIONAL, one of the most emotional reads I have read in a long time. A book that made me question what I would do if I found myself in the same situation, so many what if’s, so much empathy and sympathy, just every single sense and emotion heightened until they were strung so tight the avalanche of tears was the only way to break the hold. Despite those tears, I adored this book.
“…I know if I dream, I’ll dream about the fact that Saxon and Samuel aren’t identical after all.”
Monica James exceled herself in this book, she brought these characters to life with a bang, she took a scenario that any woman would dread and made it real, she makes you live it, she makes you breathe it, she makes you question yourself and she makes you cry for our heroine, Lucy. I felt everything in this book, I experienced everything and I cried about everything. This is a book that grabs you from the get go, from the very start you are hurtled into the situation and the emotions hit you fast, the emotions only intensified through journal flashbacks into the past to show where it all began. A love born in teenage years, a love that has stood the test of time, a love that everyone was envious of and wanted to have. What should have been the happiest day of Lucy’s life turns out to be the worst and the hits just kept on coming.
“But I know, just as an unseen iceberg is dangerous to an unsuspecting ship, it’s what I can’t see that will do the most harm.”
This is a book that makes you question everything about the characters, their pasts and their presents. There is a lot of unshared history and you know throughout that whatever it is will have a huge impact on your thoughts, feeling and you dread their ramifications. It is this fear along with the scenario that these characters find themselves in that keeps those pages constantly turning and those tears constantly falling.
“You’re standing in a room full of people, but you’re still alone.”
One accident changes everything, everything you believe about the person you love and about the person you became. I want to go into details, I am desperate to try to make you understand why this book was so powerful, but you need to read it for yourself, to experience those highs and lows for yourself the way the author intended. Does this contain cheating…technically…yes, but you need to read the book to understand. Did it bother me? Hell no! Lucy was so strong, she was fierce, she was protective and she was loyal, but there is only so much a person can take before every single feeling is chipped away until nothing remains. For the person you love with every fibre of your being to destroy every single one of those feelings is devastating to witness, every barb I felt, because Monica James made it that way.
“You heard me. Get out! And take your memories with you.”
I felt for Sam, I truly did, but it seems that he has a god complex. He can do what he wants, when he wants, and f*** the consequences. He has been enabled by a mother I seriously wanted to stab and the victim has always been his twin brother, Saxon. Saxon had a heart of gold, he was the quiet one but deemed the delinquent by the actions of his twin. Saxon had the one thing he loved the most ripped away from him and despite being forced to leave the town he once called home, he comes back to save the brother he despises. It is Lucy’s pleas that make Saxon return but is Saxon here to save Sam or save Lucy?
Seriously, stay away from spoilers, read this book the way the author intended. Experience it for yourself, ride that rollercoaster, embrace those emotions and make yourself feel. It will be easy. This book is one that I will not forget, this is a book that is running through my mind at the rate of knots still not content with leaving these characters behind. I am desperate for book two. I need to know what happens, and while that last scene decimated me, I have read between the lines, I have my hunches and I think their golden, I just need Monica James to confirm and try to help me put these characters to bed, because they are relentless, how am I supposed to move on after that? Read this book!!
“You may not be my rose, but you’ll always be my sunshine.”
Ms. James has written a book so deep, so emotional, it goes beyond an emotional roller coaster, its an emotional wasteland. It is a story that you will need to just hang on for it will be a very bumpy ride. When you think things are finally resolving, Nope, she flips the switch and everything is in upheaval again and that is what makes this an amazing read.
I cried, I yelled, I grieved right along with the characters and that is what makes this one of the best books I have read this year. Again I have to stress, this book is EMOTIONAL so keep tissues by your side and just hang on because all will be resolved in book two. I had to put myself in the character’s shoes and wonder what I would do if this happened to me and I literally had no answer. I felt so bad for Lucy and all she was put thru. Ms. James brings her characters to life and makes you feel everything that they are going thru, every good thing and every bad thing that they are living thru. She made me experience everything and I Mean EVERYTHING AND I hurt Lucy especially, because that is how Ms James wrote and her beautiful and emotional story got to me in such a way, I was an emotional basketcase but what a wonderful way to experience this story. This story shows a love that started when in teen years . a love that has stood test of time , a love that everyone wanted but didn’t seem to have. What really should have been the best day, the happiest day of Lucy’s life ended up being the worst of her young life and just kept getting worst from there on out. One accident changes everything that you seem to know about the person you love, about the past that you know it to be and the person you love AND the person they have become. This is a book that makes you question everything about the characters (Lucy, Sam and Saxon), the present and their past. I want to go into more detail but I don’t want to give any spoilers. This is a book to be savored, to be read and devoured because things move and there are a lot of twists and turns. There is a lot of unshared history and what you thought you knew, you don’t know and whatever it is will have a big impact on your thoughts, feeling and as your reading this book, you start to worry about the outcome. I read this book in one sitting and then I went back and re-read it again because this was so good. I now am jonesing for book 2 because I need to know what ends up happening to all involved. This is one story that has stayed with me . These characters, especially Lucy, will have you invested in their story and the outcome. Because the last scene in the book about did me in and the cliffhanger was earth shattering. This is one duet that everyone will remember.
My Rating: 5.0 stars *****
