Whatever you want to call it, the bride-to-be won't be at the church on time.
Walking away from her fiancé was the hardest thing Ava has ever done. After all, the sexy and charming Mateo is everything she's ever wanted—and more. But she needs to protect herself—and her heart—before it's shattered once and for all.
Mateo has no choice but to let her go. His woman needs space, and he loves her enough to give it to her—no matter how much he hates it. The only thing keeping him sane is the certainty that their separation will be short-lived.
Ava thinks it's over, but she's about to find out that Mateo will stop at nothing to turn her "I Don't" into an "I Do."
Unexpected, captivating, intensely passionate love
So not what I expected. Ava and Mateo almost feel star-crossed in their love but Ava has left Mateo and wants space. She is angry with him and feels betrayed. I love how Ella Fox took us back in time and allowed us to experience this first love and passion that Ava and Mateo felt. We also learn about how unbelievably nasty Ava’s mother truly is, she is the definition of gold digger. Ava is blessed with an amazing father that loves her to the ends of the earth and back. As Ava and Mateo prepare to get married, the unthinkable happens and Ava’s father dies which sends her into a tailspin. But then other forces intervene resulting in an accident where Ava loses part of her memory. What she remembers is a betrayal by Mateo. Mateo struggles to see Ava suffer so he gives her the space she needs until he can’t any longer. The struggle is real as Ava tries to reconcile what she knows of Mateo with a warped memory that she really doesn’t want to remember. All she knows is that it will cause her intense pain. Can Mateo help her break through the walls she’s built? Will Ava allow herself to embrace love no matter how painful? Truly an incredible journey told in past and present giving all the depth of emotion that these two lovers feel.
This book is really boring. Too detailed and descriptive over things that don’t matter and at times it felt a though I was reading a teenager’s diary. I skipped around a lot and was still bored with the storyline. By the time I reached the end, I didn’t care what happened.
Loved the book.
