My emotions were all over the place as the jagged puzzle pieces of Josie's memories finally find their rightful place in her mind. My heart was in my throat as Cole tries his hardest to keep shielding her from the pain of the tragedy that continues to haunt both he and his Josie Bird. My shock at the revelations that are finally set free matched Josie's reactions and her sister Vanessa's as well. And even though it all made sense and just the thought of what Cole put himself through in order to protect Josie made me sigh more than once, I still hurt badly for all of them. Everyone's lives were put on hold all because a boy met a girl and loved her enough to make sure nothing would ever take away her happy. Even if that meant being hated by the town he was so desperate to leave. Cole embodies the very definition of selfless and I was both mad at him and wildly in awe at his choices in life. But to think he loved his Josie that much, was beyond beautiful.
I will admit I teared up more than once while reading this book. Nina Lane masterfully delivers the right amount of feeling and creates characters who react in a real way. Seeing members of the small community of Castille come to Josie's aid, whether it was simple act of asking to help paint her mural or the sincere offer of possible employment, they showed they cared. There isn't that relentless over the top anger at Cole despite what he may have been alluded to have been doing all of these years at the town's expense nor is their despair over what really did happen on that bridge after Josie's parents's anniversary party many years ago. Instead there is understanding and forgiveness, delivered together with the promise of a love that was clearly always meant to be.
The entire What If Duet (including the prequel novella) is a must read. There are numerous twists, turns and detours as Cole and Josie try to find their way back to each other. Both change throughout this series and in particular, I was thrilled to see Josie take back control of her life and find the determination to set things right. Along with some well-placed easter eggs and some very engaging secondary characters who I wouldn't mind seeing more of in the future, there is the overwhelming hope that love can and will conquer all. I never want it to be easy though, and this book delivers perfectly. And quite frankly isn't that what most of us want to see? I know I do and If We Fly checks off all those boxes for me.
If you love a well-written second chance romance, then the What If duet is for you. Start with If We Leap and get lost in the love that is Cole and Josie. It is just wonderful and you won't want it to end.
5 huge stars!
Nina Lane packed an emotional punch into If We Fly, in many ways. Some moments were so beautiful they made my heart skip a beat, and there were times when the revelations were so heartwrenching the pain Josie and Cole were experiencing was palpable. Ms. Lane did a remarkable job of conveying the range of feelings her characters were going through in this book and took her readers on that roller coaster right along with them.
I loved that Ms. Lane didn’t add a lot of added drama and suspense to If We Fly. There was already so much going on with Josie trying to recover her memory, the town’s perception and treatment of Cole, and the tenuous rekindling of the relationships in Josie’s life, anything else would have felt gratuitous and unnecessary. Focusing only on healing from the mistakes of their shared pasts made this story more poignant than it would have been if any other elements had been brought in.
If We Fly is the third book in Nina Lane’s What If duet. These books are one story written in three installments – If We Leap, the prequel novella telling the story of Josie and Cole’s relationship ten years ago – and must be read in order; If We Leap isn’t strictly necessary to the understanding of the second and third books but does add a level of understanding about the extent of their love and devotion to one another. If We Fly is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Josie and Cole.
Oh, this series...I’m so in love with this series. I can’t say it enough...if you can, read this series!! Nina Lane has such a beautiful way with descriptive words. Her words tore my heart out at times. But read these beautiful examples:
"I keep going, desperate suddenly to run and keep running until the wind pushes me up into the sky, and I disappear."
"A smile opens up from the middle of my soul, and a strange feeling lifts my heart. For an instant, I don’t recognize it. It’s light and airy, almost sparkly, like a purple balloon rising into the sky....Happiness."
There were others, but I didn’t want to show you any that gave away anything.
This story about Cole and Josie really is heart wrenching. As I said in my review for IF WE FALL a tragic accident tears their world apart. Now in IF WE FLY, slowly we see things coming together again. But it’s not so easy. Nina Lane did a beautiful job weaving together love between Cole and Josie, love for family, and solving Josie’s mystery from her amnesia as a result of the the accident. By the time the book ended, I was so in love with the story that I wanted to start from the beginning and read it all over again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
5++ Flying STARS!!!
