I hated Phillip's mother, but I hated Sophia and her spoiled rotten ways, even more. I didn't think much of his father either, especially when he didn't step up and put a stop those two. And I LOVED Maggie's dad to pieces and back, as well as Ed, Phillips roommate. He was both hilarious, and the voice of reason Phillip needed.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone. And remember.... this is coming from someone who doesn't normally YA books, so that's saying something, right?
The book tells the story of Maggie and Philip, two people who come from completely different worlds. They are polar opposites and yet they are the perfect match. Maggie is a fisherman's daughter with a big heart and even bigger dreams. She is a free spirit who lives for fun and adventure. She wants to sail the seas and see all that the world has to offer.
Philip is the son of a business mogul who is expected to follow in his fathers footsteps. He has lived a life by a tightly organised schedule and tries to please his parents but never seems to succeed. He is slowly suffocating under the weight of responsibility his family is piling on him. He has never known true happiness and doesn't even know what he really likes besides what he has been told to like.
All that changes when he meets Maggie. She challenges him to step out of his comfort zone and to take a walk on the wild side. To fight against the chains his parents have imprisoned him in and to finally live his life.
These two had fantastic chemistry. There were so many things standing in their way, from Philip's family to Maggie's free nature. Their relationship didn't take off straight away and I have to say I loved this. This book has to be one of the most realistic summer romances I have ever read about. They had so many obstacles to over come and dreams to realise first. They had to work for their happily ever after.
Loveday and Knoebel have written a moving and captivating book. So emotional and heart wrenching. I cried so many times. This book ripped out my heart. And it has such a great message, especially where Philip's story is concerned. It tells you to fight for what you love, to never live under someones thumb, and to follow your heart. As Maggie says:
"The only power we had over life was how we chose to live it."
In regards to the writing, it was superb, the words just flowed across the page. You will have no trouble getting sucked into this one.
I don't know what else I can say other that READ THIS BOOK!! The perfect summer read, I cannot recommend this enough.
So when they announced they wrote a book together… Well, it was a given I would read it. And boy, am I glad I did!
Bring forth the tissues my friends, because you will definitely need them before the book is over. Fair warning *smiles*
Maggie is the daughter of a fisherman and she has a free spirit. In a way. Let me explain. She sees the world in a different way than others might. She appreciates the small and big things. Embraces every opportunity she gets tossed her way. She’s like a wild horse – running free. She’s also afraid of letting her heart go. She guards the one thing that is most precious to her and in doing so, she has closed herself of from one of the most beautiful things in this world.
It’s not that she isn’t capable of loving, she is. She loves her father, her friends. She loves the work she does with the kids, but she has closed herself off from falling in love. Afraid of being trapped, of being hurt.
Phillip is the son of a wealthy family. His entire life consists of schedules, appointments, lunches, doing things he would rather be free off. Every detail of his life is planned.
By his mother.
All his life he has done what was expected by him. Doing tennis because his mother proclaimed that was what a proper young man should be learning, wearing the right clothes, buying the right things. Everything to behave like a son of a wealthy businessman should behave.
For Phillip this has been normal, the way it was supposed to be. But one afternoon, he gets enough. Being forced to take a walk with the beautiful but spoiled Sophia is more than he bargained for. She’s the daughter of a friend of the family. Also from a wealthy family, mind you. Phillip’s parents wouldn’t want him to be seen with anyone less than stellar. *rolls eyes*
And in comes Maggie. With her orange hair, her “who gives a s***” attitude and her rollerblades, she rolls right into Phillips life and tears it into tiny pieces. One by one, Phillip begins to realize that life can be so much more than plans, order and expectations.
But it isn’t only Phillip’s life that is changed. Remember I told you about Maggie being closed off from love? Something she chose herself, I might add. Phillip opens that door and forces Maggie to take a good look at her own life, her own decisions.
Three weeks is suddenly way to little time.
As you know I stated earlier that I loved Sonya and Candace’s books separately. Each of them are unique and they have an amazing way to pull me in as a reader and make me go through the whole rollercoaster of angst, horror, gasping, anger, hurt, joy, love and utter surprise. Yes, they have more than once knocked me over with a feather –or quill if you like. There are messages from me to them where I have cursed at them for doing stuff to their characters. Other times I have cried my heart out (particularly The Summer I Fell, but that was also due to stuff happening in my own little world that collided with stuff that happened in that world.), and I have loved every second.
Love Always, is just as good. Just as heart breaking, provocative and filled with love and hope as their individual stories. Except…
In Love Always, they have taken the best from themselves and matched it.
I cried. I cursed. I read 70% of it in one go. I couldn’t go to bed once I was done, because my heart was racing so badly. (No cliffhangers, I might add)
The relationship between Maggie and Phillip is honest. It feels realistic, they leap off the pages and it felt like I knew them before the book was done. I got so caught up in the story that I actually yelled at my kindle when I found out what ******* was up to in the end (sorry, the name had to go LOL – spoilers you know *winks*).
And OMG love letters. That was just a freaking awesome detail and I loved it every time I got to read one of them. It was a peek into their thoughts, their memories and it was beautiful.
Love Always, is a story about love, honesty. The pull between doing what everyone thinks you SHOULD do and what you WANT to do. Expectation, tradition and free will.
Three words to describe this book?
Expect the unexpected.
