This book is filled with raw emotion. There was no holding back when writing what the characters were feeling. The way in which the characters expressed themselves was gut wrenching. Their emotions jumped right off the page and pierced you through the heart. At times, I felt like I was intruding on something very personal. Then reminded myself this is fiction, keep reading.
Katie and Devin were childhood best friends who became lovers. Before they were able to explore their feelings, they were torn apart by a situation that was beyond their control. For ten years they merely existed until fate and a family tragedy brought them back into each other’s lives.
This story is written in Katie and Devin’s point of view. Katie’s point of view was filled with so much emotion. This girl really got to me. I just wanted to give her a hug and tell her everything was going to be okay. She is the type of heroine I like in my books. She was strong but also had a vulnerable side. The best way to describe her is that she is like a phoenix. Despite all the disappointment and heartbreak life threw at her, she always came out on top.
Where Katie was the emotional one, Devin was the one who was grounded. It was his experiences in life and in the military and how he coped with them that made him the best person to help Katie. The characteristic that I felt helped the most was his honesty. It allowed him to show her empathy when she needed it the most and show her the love that she deserved when she was ready for it. Beautiful.
With BT as co-author, it was no surprise that the portions of the book that described Devin’s experiences in the sandbox were written in great detail. It added to the raw honesty of the book. It gave the reader a glimpse of what our soldiers overseas must do to make their situations bearable. The loss of life they must quickly come to grips with in order to carry out their orders. If you didn’t have an appreciation for our military before you will after reading this book and if you already did, it will just deepen that appreciation. Much respect goes out to all those that serve.
This story is a heart-felt at times gut wrenching love story that will have you feeling for these characters from the prologue to the last chapter. This was a collaboration made in heaven. I hope to see more from KL and BT.
That's all of the back story I'm going to tell you, because honestly much more and I would give the whole story away. I loved this story. It was raw and emotional. It made me feel like I was there watching all this take place. You could feel the emotion behind the words. I think having BT Urruela's experience helped make this book real and bring the experience of a soldier to life. I love K.L. Grayson's voice and how she brought Katie to life for me. This books has twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. I felt every experience each and every character in this book went through. For me this is a book that I will continue to read over and over again.
I truly loved this book! Grayson made Katie so freaking believable in her reactions to a variety of events that you felt you were right there going through the emotional moments with her. Urreala's descriptions of Devin's life on the battlefield gave me a perspective I have never had before-and I thank Urreala for doing so. By not glossing over the difficulties of Devin and his group of men, Urreala gave the story a much grittier and heavier impact that otherwise wouldn't have been achieved. I laughed, cried, even yelled at my kindle at some points, and wouldn't trade the experience for anything-that's just how much this book touched me!
Overall, Grayson and Urreala seamlessly blend their voices to create a very moving and emotional story of second chances at life and love-and I am so glad I was invited into this world. Kudos to BT Urreala for sharing some of his experiences with the rest of us! And thank you KL Grayson for coming up with a wonderful story! I hope there are more stories planned for the future!
