This wonderful read is until other NA paranormals that I've read. It's character focused, and the supernatural part is not right up in the center. Luc and Rose are two souls trying to find a way to live with what happened, but to do so, they're going to have to forgive themselves. The paths they had set themselves on might not be what they need, and when they meet, they begin to question those paths. I like the twist on Luc's character and sympathized with both of them right off. I can't say much else without giving away spoilers, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
I liked the MCs, Rose and Luc, but I much preferred Luc. He was so broken and sad. It hurt my heart o see him internally struggling with himself and the forgiveness he wanted so desperately. I could feel the desperation at wanting to be forgiven. It came through so clearly on the pages. As for Rose, I understood why she was hurting but at times, it drove me nuts. She was hurtful to the people that loved her because of her pain. But she started to grow up and understand that acting like wasn't okay, even though she was hurting.
Speaking of growth and forgiveness, forgiveness was the major theme here. It is so hard to forgive and even harder to accept that you have been forgiven. Both Luc and Rose had a lot of forgiving and getting of people's forgiveness.
The author really captured small town life so well. As someone who has lived in small towns all their life, I look to make sure they are repped correctly, both positively and negatively (because there are negatives to living in a small town). Patricia Josephine captured the small town life perfectly. From the town celebrations for one wedding to the everybody knowing your business and judging you for it, it made me happy to see it all.
Despite not realizing what this actually was about until I read it, I still really enjoyed it. I looked at the author's other works and I saw more books on angels, which I am very much intrigued by and will certainly be on the lookout for. I only wish that this was a little longer as I would have loved to see Luc and Rose interact more. Other than that, this was a great book.
First, Rose shows up. Immediately the two are attracted to one another, causing Luc to question his vow of celibacy. Then someone from Luc's past shows up, trying to entice Luc into his old ways. Rose is unexpectedly pulled into Luc's past and in order to save her, Luc will have to reveal his true identity and give up his chance at redemption. What will he choose?
This story is beautifully written and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I completely fell in love with Luc and Rose and their love story. Patricia did a lovely job keeping her reader interested and involved in the story. The imagery was beautiful and the story was very detailed.
First, I didn't realize how short the story was. When I got to the end I was kind of mad that it was over. I understand that the story was done and not much else could have been added, but I wanted to know more.
Second, when Luc finally reveals his true identity, Rose is so quick to except it. I don't want to spoil anything for readers, but if it had been me, it would have taken a lot more convincing.
This story is definitely worth a read. If you love a good romance story with a twist, you will love this one. Take my advice and go buy your copy today.
"Life in Thornwood was slow and mundane. It had taken Luc time to adjust to the routine, but once he had he cherished every second. This was life in all its glory. He was blessed to be allowed to experience it."
"'It is okay to be sad,' Luc said softly. 'One lifetime never feels like enough time.'"
"Going to clubs in the city, she had learned how to dance, but for this small town’s sake, she’d keep it toned down. She didn’t need to make anyone’s grandma faint."
