As usual, Colleen Hoover is a favorite author that I only discovered a few years ago. She never disappoints…especially when I’m in a reading rut. We all get there, no matter how much we love to read. I have found lately that between the craziness of the world, family emergencies and sickness, the holidays, and work, my time to read is getting less and less, so I am working hard to read these days. But, when I feel the need to get back into reading, I can always count on CH to get me there.
Okay, so I’ll stop rambling and start focusing on one of the most amazing books I’ve read this year…definitely a 5-star read! This book is highly emotional, which I’ve come to love of CH’s books. I find that each book generally touches a very emotional topic, generally a make-it or break-it topic that forces the characters to look beyond what is right in front of them and push through a very large obstacle. I think I’ve discovered that this is one of the things I love most about CH’s books and why I keep coming back for more.
We begin by riding along with Morgan and Chris and their journey into early parenthood. Morgan’s sister, Jenny, and Chris’ best friend, Jonah, are also part of the story as a couple, but everything changes when a strange accident happens and throws everything they think they know into their faces and force Jonah and Morgan to re-evaluate everything they know, or thought they knew. Additionally, Chris and Morgan’s daughter, Clara, is on this rollercoaster ride along with them, and as a teenager trying to find her way, be mad at her parents, take part in revengeful roles, and figure out how to move on with her life, it makes for an interesting (and frustrating) ride.
This book is full of it all. But rather than bogging you down, it carefully weaves you in and out and along the journey of some of the best characters, and keeps you coming back for more! You won’t want to put this one down!
