I cannot stand to read stories where the two main characters seem like they're together out of circumstance instead of true love. Mild spoilers...
I didn't feel at anytime in the book that Carter truly loved Molly with his whole heart. It was described in the first and second books that Daisy (who died in a tornado) was his soulmate. Then he wanted to get with his best friend, Jo, but she was in love with someone else. So it felt as though Molly was a #2 consolation prize and if Daisy could rise from the dead then Molly would be tossed. Anyone in Molly's predicament would be insecure about whether they were 2nd (or 3rd) choice yet this was never addressed. I was waiting for the drama about Molly not being the love of his life but was disappointed that something that significant was ignored.
My other problem with this book deals with the trauma Molly endured from her "father". Anyone from a small town knows that everybody knows everybody else's business. So I am completely mind blown that no one suspected that any of what happened to her was going on. Molly had several friends but all were completely oblivious.
Basically, instead of this friends to lovers romance I thought I would get, I just felt super sad for Molly. Nobody in town (including her mother and best friends) paid enough attention to her to notice her suffering. And the man she loves is only with her because his soulmate died.
Overall, it could have been a good book but too many issues felt glossed over or completely ignored and left me disappointed. If this was on KU, I would say try it out but since it's not, I say save your money.
Carter & Molly grew up together and had a special bond; he was her protector and best friend. Molly was living in a difficult situation, a nightmare, a frightening situation for any adult, hell for a little girl. Despite her hell, she was a loving and caring person; always thinking of others first.
"What are you doing?" I asked. Enjoying this beautiful weather." "But, it's raining.” “So? It’s still beautiful. Look at the way the raindrops change the way we look. Isn’t that amazing?”
As the years went by, Molly's situation got worse. She was desperately looking forward to leaving her hometown. Her group of friends was doing the usual things teenagers do. Her feelings for Carter grew and at the point of crossing over to more than friendship. But, Molly would not let it happen. They took different paths, but were always there for each other. Life took some unpleasant turns and Carter and Molly had to work through them. Their bond though sometimes strained, never broke. They always had each other, right in front, but their lives took a detour before they could find each other.
This is a beautiful story full of emotions; you will smile, you will cry and you will be angry. But, in the end your heart will swell with happiness. The author's writing flows and she deals with a sensitive subject in a very delicate manner.
“Secretly, I’d wished for their kind of romance many times, but that was only a wish. I knew that I could never be intimate with a man. No man had ever wanted a broken woman, and I was much more than broken – my body and heart felt like they’d been shattered into millions of pieces. In fact, I was certain that some pieces were missing and would never be found.”
How when they were 16 was he making out with Daisy and being rejected, then at 18 mourning her and his unborn babies death. Which happened in a tornado that you didn’t hear about until long after you found out she died.
Also you think Nick died on some secret mission in the military, but find out five years later it was a clerical error. Where was he for five years. I have never heard of a soldier not being allowed to contact his family for 5+ years.
And then the fire.... Molly was at the funeral then the wake afterwards, the fire started while they were at the wake and yet Carter believed she started it. Makes no sense.
Also the jumping from Carter then back to Molly was confusing when it was jumping back a few hours. Example when the fire happened Carters chapter ended with him walking away and in the next Chapter Molly is arriving at Dr Burke’s, took me a bit to figure out this happened before the last chapter ended.
I mostly found this book frustrating.
We first meet Carter and Molly in Yours and Mine and my heart was broken for Carter before I even started this amazing book. Both Carter and Molly have been friends since they were children. They loved each other before they even knew what love was, but time and circumstances never brought them together as more than friends. Molly is so strong and determined but so broken from the unthinkable she has endured her entire life. Carter has been her strength until he had his own demons to fight. At this point Molly became his strength and saving grace.
This book was a wonderful journey that showed that even through tragedy love can overcome all obstacles. I highly recommend this book!
