This one has her trademarked wounded hero who shoots his own foot enough I wonder why he hasn’t bought steel toed boots or taken said boot out of his mouth. Here’s a man who can’t communicate worth a damn from trauma... And Lily, the heroine, has been stuck on him for ten years, pining away (as we’re told often). That was disappointing. It made her character weaker, made him not have to work so hard after messing up again and again...it was an easy shortcut for them to get together. I think the story would have been stronger if she’d been less hung up on him and treated a little less like a vestal virgin.
I liked the friends - Chloe and Jennifer - they really should have had a scene together! And the scene between Jennifer and Lily was good, too. Ethan was so withdrawn and emotionally constipated, that even with all his POV chapters, I somehow never felt like I got to *know* him. The real him, the one that Lily had fallen in love with, in the present day. Lots of flashbacks to when they were kids and young lovers. Maybe too many of them? To me, that narrative time could have been better spent in the present, with him changing more into the guy he was along with the businessman he is.
Overall, good story. I have my own quibbles about structure, flashbacks and backstory and so on, but Lace isn’t a newbie writer and she does deliver on guys who really should listen to their best friend’s advice, LOL.
Would you try a new dating app that matched you to only one person - your soul mate? Why not try it, because if the date is terrible at least it’s only terrible once! Ethan is a billionaire whose company invents a new app for dating that will revolutionize the term soul mate. Lily is an artist in a small hometown who has big dreams and a big scar on her heart from a lossed relationship in her past. Lily buys the app and she is immediately connected to Ethan's #1 competitor, who was testing the app for research. Lily and Ethan were high school sweet hearts, so how will he react knowing she is dating his enemy and that his app brought them together?
It is honestly difficult to see who is more the important in the story, but each viewpoint can really lead you to understanding these two people and the other main characters better. There were times that I really felt drawn towards Ethan's past and understanding why he does the things he does, but mostly I felt more connected with Lily and really feeling for her as I learned about her past experiences. Lily decided to use the Destiny app for one more chance to have find her true love
I really enjoyed this book and to be honest, I’m actually enjoying Ms. Lace’s contemporary romances better than I did her Terramates series. Lily was a wonderfully sweet character that stayed true to herself not letting the world try to dictate who she should be. However, she wasn’t a doormat either and didn’t hesitate to tell Ethan off when he deserved it. Ethan was a strong character as well with hints of the sweet boy that Lily fell in love with. The storyline flowed really well and all loose ends were tied up by the end of the book. I definitely give it two thumbs up!
