Customer ReviewsSee All
I thoroughly loved all the characters! Even the background characters stood out. This book made me ache for my lost soulmate. This book made me feel pain for the characters. Made me feel happy for them and sad. Well thought out and I can’t wait to read the next book. I loved how it went back and forth between the present and past. Between Houston and Rory. I like how she has ambitions, but also shows that she is like every one else. A hopeless romantic. I hated that Houston cheated on his wife, but this was very realistic.
Mysterious but warning needed
This book should have come with a cheating warning but I guess that would spoil the story. Honestly I had a really hard time liking or even respecting Houston at all. I also could not grasp this all consuming love he and Rory supposedly had. They only dated for 6 months. He was not honest at all and then left her right after she got an abortion. Then 5 years later he runs into her, is married but isn't really into his wife because he's hopelessly still in live with Rory (eye roll). Now he wants her back.
I liked Rory, she went through some heavy stuff and is still a decent, witty person even if she's slightly closed off. She's still in love with Houston but I can not see how. He treated her terribly while they we're dating then just left her without any real excuse. 5 years later he just shows up and expects her to just let it go even though he's married! I was impressed for a while at she spurned all his advance until she doesn't. Things happen and Ben your he says he's leaving his wife, he leaves Rory to deal with he aftermath all alone.
Not many times to do hope that an HEA is not given to the main characters, but here I really hope that Rory pulls her head out and leaves Houston in the past where he belongs.
Here's hoping for a Rory and Liam HEA!
Even though a lot about the characters annoyed me, the mystery kept me on he edge of my seat and it was something I totally didn't see coming. The ending was very vague and I had hopes that it was leading away from Houston but the very last parts lead me to believe I may not get so lucky.
I kept turning the pages but I don't feel compelled to go onto the next book. I loved Rory and Houston but not Rory and Houston together.
