First off, to be able to understand the characters you might want to go read Let Me Go. I think you will enjoy this story more having a background on them if you do.
We get to see what made Benny the way he is and also get to meet someone from his past that has just as much hurt in them as he does. At first I didn't like Sophie at all. I know she's hurt by actions from her past and losing a loved one but she blames Benny for everything and it's a long road to change her opinion of him. She was very mean and wouldn't give him a chance and see that he changed and maybe he isn't actually to blame. Neither one really knows the whole story from what happened from each POV but eventually, it has to come out. So many parts just gutted me but it was things we needed to know and had to be done. After finding out more, I can now honestly say that I understand Sophie and her actions. Eventually events help their relationship bloom but it's still a stuggle to let go of the past for both.
I was also very exctied to see that we get to see more of Kat, Mason, their kids and the other characters we learned to love from Let Me Go. Kat is hilarious and a meddler but I feel she's the glue to this family more than anyone could imagine. They might not all be blood relatives but sometimes friends are thicker than blood when it comes to family. Great, great read and you'll be missing out if you don't go grab this.
Sophie and Ethan were childhood friends and eventually turned into lovers. They had a future planned, but that future was taken away from them. Sophie blames Benny for her loss, and her resentment at what was taken from her has turned into anger. It’s pretty safe to say that Sophie doesn’t want to even breathe the same air as Benny.
Due to mutual friends, Benny and Sophie are suddenly thrust together and must share the same air. This is extremely difficult for Sophie to handle, especially when her friends tell her about how kind and loving Benny. How can this be? This is the man that killed her future. Surely they can’t be talking about the same cold-blooded killer? Sophie begins to see Benny in a new light as he tries to bring closure to Sophie’s inability to forgive Benny for taking away what should have been a joyous time for her and Ethan.
Sophie is finally able to forgive Benny and realizes that he was not at fault for Ethan’s death. She has placed so much blame on Benny that she doesn’t know how to let it go and be his friend. Through many calculated set ups by friends, Benny and Sophie come to a place neither one of them expected to be – a place of peace and contentment. Both Benny and Sophie have turned hard over the years so they have a lot of wall to break down between each other, but by being patient and trusting in each other, they are able to place themselves in each other’s hearts.
“I love you, Benny.”
Benny may not have a family made of blood anymore because of the blame game, but Benny has family in his friends. They understand the pain that Benny feels on a daily basis and are there to help him when he feels down. They never allow him to wallow, but help him realize that he is a different person now and has people that love him – including his two adorable twin godchildren that he loves and takes an active part in their lives. This was a beautiful quick read that was at times emotional. One thing that I enjoy about reading books in a series is the ability to see what our previous friends are doing…Mason and Kat are still madly in love with each other and have multiple scenes in Benny’s story.
