Great read, and I loved how it ended. ❤️❤️❤️
A few reviews said they thought it was all resolved too quickly but I disagree - if the heroine had kept going back and forth and been indecisive for any longer, it would've really peeved me off. I think it was probably just right.
** Spoiler **
*** don't keep reading if you don't want to know.
One thing I didn't like was how she had sex with both guys within a day of each other. I can see why it happened but I still felt a bit icky when I read it.
Otherwise it was such a clever and well written book.
The answer lies not in the men, but who Emma is and who she becomes in the face of tragedy.
This is my second Taylor Jenkins Reid, and I look forward to going back and reading her others.
This is my first TJR book, and I'm sure it won't be my last. I really enjoyed the style of her writing. I'm happily married, but somehow I was genuinely sad.. like after a breakup when this book ended. I'm not sure I totally agreed with Emma **no spoilers** but I suppose that's how life is!
There was no sugar-coating the unbelievable circumstances Emma, Jesse and Sam were thrown in. Although at times I felt the outcome was predictable, still I wasn't so sure if or how things were going to play out especially when I got to the 3rd part of the novel.
I don't want to spoil anything for those who are planning to read this novel so I will just say that, yes, this book will just tear you up and kill you. I've read the previous 3 novels by TJR and this book is the first that just tore me apart- I mean, I stopped reading the book maybe 5 chapters prior to the end of the book because I felt so much for the characters.
But then the last part/ chapters was just wonderful. TJR was just able tie everything in and give this sense of peace which was important for me because of the conflict the characters had to work out in this novel.
To me what makes his novel different from the previous novels of TJR is that it is bittersweet... Which makes me love this book even more.
We go back in time to high school when she became friends with Sam and fell in love with Jesse. We see Emma and Jesse traveling and exploring the world until the fateful day when everyone presumed he died at sea and Emma returns to Massachusetts where the rest of her family is, a place she once couldn’t wait to escape. After two years of grieving, she bumps into Sam and manages to find love yet again. But when she gets a call from Jesse telling her he’s been rescued and is alive, now she’s in the predicament of loving two men, being loved by two men, and not wanting to hurt anyone, which of course is impossible in such a situation.
What makes this such an enjoyable book is the writing and of course finding out how Emma resolves her dilemma. Also, the way Reid writes about Emma’s relationship to her older sister and family is wonderful, as is the way she describes how Emma (and all of us) change over time. In Emma’s case, the tragic death of her husband shifted her life in a dramatically different direction, but also little things, like Emma changing her hair and giving up artificial sweeteners, stuff Jesse couldn't be aware of while he was lost in the middle of the Pacific.
This is two love stories in one. First we read about her falling in love with Jesse at seventeen and then about her falling in love with Sam when she’s thirty-one.
A beautiful book for fans of women’s fiction.
