After reading a number of books where the behaviour of the H and h was immature and the storyline predictable, it was so satisfying to read a book where the main characters acted mature and reasonable. The other bonus was that the book had just the right amount of sexy stuff and not pages and pages of repetitive descriptions of two people going at each other every five minutes.......I usually skip over these pages. in this book, I read every word on every page and felt every emotion the two main characters felt. I just love Jasinda WIlder's books and can't wait for her next one.
Ollie was an organ donor. His eyes, his brain, his lungs, his heart…parts of my Ollie went out and saved lives.
Then His heart, beating in another man’s chest, found its way back to me, and I found myself faced with an impossible choice: hold on to the pain and beauty of the past and the memory of the man I loved, or reach for a bold new
future, knowing each heartbeat will be a reminder of all I’ve lost.
I wasn’t supposed to live past thirty.
My grandfather died at forty-five. Heart failure.
My father died at thirty-five. Heart failure.
The doctors told me my whole life that I wouldn’t see my thirty-first birthday. My heart was going to give out. It was just a matter of time: a rare blood type and an unusually large heart meant essentially zero chance of a transplant.
I proved them all wrong…by dying on my thirty-first birthday.
And then I woke up, alive, with another man’s heart inside my chest, and his widow on my conscience.
I spent my whole life preparing for death, and now I have to learn how to live. Only, as I soon discovered, living is the easy part.
Loving, and allowing myself to be loved…well, that’s a whole lot harder.
This was unlike any book, I think that Jasinda has ever written! In fact, I found this book to be one of those that stick with you way longer than any of the others that she's written. When I first read it, I was sure that I was going to go through a box of tissues and I did. It's heartwarming and heartbreaking. It's a book about a guy who gets a second chance to fall in love with the widow of the man who has her husband's heart in his chest. You always wonder whether or not a person can feel the echo of the other person when that happens and this is the telling of that story. I found that I couldn't hold myself together. I kept waiting for the bottom to fall out. Was his heart going to reject and where would they be left? It was truly a story that I would let my mother read and I found myself wanted a second book!! Jasinda girl you outdid yourself on this one!!!
Lachlan Montgomery thought he was living on borrowed time and chose to live each day to the fullest in the most indulgent way, not attaching himself to anyone. So when his heart stops and gets restarted with Oliver's in its place, Lachlan has to decide if his second chance at life also means living it differently than before. And it starts with seeking out Niall, only to discover that Lachlan might want the one person he shouldn't have.
I liked the overall storyline and dynamic between Niall and Lachlan, without diminishing what Niall and Oliver had. Lachlan and Niall and a push and pull to them that showcased that how despite the amazing chemistry, a person can't be forced into something they are not wanting unless they own up to it for themselves. I loved Lachlan's character development, how he went from a guy who didn't question fate and then turned into a person who needed to make life count for himself and everyone around him. And it wasn't like he got a transplanted heart and then turned over a new leaf immediately, it was a process that he had to undergo step by step, which made him more endearing and real. As for Niall, despite her grief, I appreciated how she stayed true to her core values and didn't shy away from taking risks even when she knew she could lose it all over again.
