I was asked by the author to review her book and received an ARC.*
I love stories like this. I am not morbid I promise. Sometimes I feel like you need to be shaken up a bit. Remembering Zane did just that for me. It is a quick read (but took me a lot longer as I was sick)
I love happy ending as much as the next girl.
We all know that sometimes life is not fair and we don't always get that happily ever after with the one. That is what I enjoyed about this book. Bonnie was in love with her High School sweetheart, they dated for many years broke up and she felt like most of us who still have hope with "the one" that some day he would return to her. Like that saying "if you love it set it free, if it returns it was meant to be."
Unfortunately, for Bonnie that would never be. Life is not always rainbows and butterflies (thank you Maroon 5 for that) this is what Bonnie learns, the "one" that got away from her dies in a car accident. She will never know if they ever had another chance to be happy again.
I know you are saying WTF? how is this supposed to make me want to read this? Well lets just say that life has a crazy way of always presenting different doors for you to open. Bonnie needs to learn to let go of Zane and try to find true happiness. I know that is hard. I have been here, so I could relate. Sometimes life is crap, someone you love dies, and you feel as though there is a huge hole in your heart. While reading this I felt as though Bonnie wanted to give up and die and say "SCREW YOU LIFE" but in the midst of all that,She had to learn to be strong and move forward, to remember the great things in life and hold on to the precious memories of Zane. Ready? Open door one, Zane's best friend Jonathan.
and then door 2 Sexy Dentist Bonnie works with
Now I know your like HUH? Zane's best friend oh heck no, and wait a sexy Dr. too? Well I am not about to give up all the details so you need to read this to find out for yourself, what happens and how Bonnie learns to love again.
J.S. has written a beautiful novella of the courage that it takes for Bonnie to move forward. Yes, it was hard. Yes, she grieves but in the end she learns to open herself up for more. I enjoyed this novella because of that rawness. Its not easy to go through life when the one you love is no longer in this world. I laughed, I cried, I cheered for Bonnie and swelled with happiness when she finally decides to open herself up again for love.So for that I am rating this novella with
