I'm typing through tears pouring down my face my heart hurts and loves at the same time. I wish I could explain my emotions right now, I'm a hot mess. I lived and breathe these characters lives along with them. It was a wonderful combination of old and new characters in the mix. A must read emotionally riveting original love story. I said it in the past and I will say it again, you are my female version of Nicholas Sparks!
In the present we meet Jesse Winslow, a rock star who has it all, but is throwing it away with substance abuse and lack of emotional relationships. He is charming, intriguing, handsome, but a tortured soul headed for self destruction. He has the illusion that he can keep things in control, but his life is spinning far out of it.
Kylie Martin is a former beauty queen turned plus-size model. She is snarky, fiery, smart, honest, but has some self esteem and food issues. She doesn't fit quite right into her world at this point.
Both are chasing their demons in regression therapy with psychiatrist, Claire Stoddard. She definitely has an interest in research and therapy, but also seems to have an unhealthy interest in Jesse as well.
So they are three people in the present, each of them broken in some way and chasing visions of distance pasts.
The connections, the feelings, the twists, the turns, and the tragedies. How do all the pieces fit? How do their past lives shape their present?
It is a convoluted story of missing halves, healing hearts, acceptance, and true connections. They both have self work to do. And as they become more vulnerable and open, strong feelings emerge. Is it destiny, fate, divine intervention? Can the mistakes of the pasts be rectified in the present? Can two lost souls find their happy ever after or are they destined to lose their chance again?
This book. Damn. It got to me. It really did. It started out a bit slow as there was a lot to establish. And then it just kind of sucked me in to all of the rich character portrayals, settings, and tragic situations. And I loved both Jesse and Kylie. They were both growing and finding ways to improve themselves and how to give love a chance. They seemed real, and their hearts and souls truly seemed joined. I was getting really tense the closer I got to the end, and I could not wait to find out where the story was going to end up.
This is a story of true love that knows no bounds and a connection that could not be broken. But it is not an easy, fluffy, or predictable story. This is different from anything this author has written, and it is definitely unique and has pieces of various genres, while not following traditional romance formulas. It smacks you in the face at times with things that hurt your heart. But at other times makes you smile and feel how meant to be they were. It is intriguing, funny, romantic, emotional, and heartbreaking. It is told in multiple points of view and flashbacks clearly marked that flow well and transport you to the situations. It takes you on several poignant journeys and makes you become invested in the characters. There are also some fun cameos that made me smile.
It has good messages about empowerment, self worth, sacrifice, and true love. It is a book that makes you ponder things once you are done. I am going to have to take a minute to recover from this. And I would love to see the author continue with stories in this vain that make you uncover hidden treasures, and think as well as feel.
I have held this review for a few days and I am still thinking about this book and having an emotional response to it.
