Oh my goodness!! From beginning to end I was in love!! Emily is amazing!! This is my first read from this author and it definitely isn’t my last!! I am hooked for so many reasons; first being the characters because having these type of characters in a book blend together so well just made me swoon! The depths of each character you get a glimpse of is unlike any that I have read before because usually it’s just a quick understanding of what they went through but seeing Emily and actually experiencing moments of panic with her brought tears to my eyes. The dialect is different than I have read because Emily is from New Zealand and I haven’t read many stories including words from her area but I was quick to catch on because it was so easily read in the story!
I’m in love with these characters and I loved watching everyone become better friends and it broke my heart at the end to watch all the tears but these types of endings leave lasting memories. I fell hard for Austin and I’m not letting him go and I can’t wait to see what this author has in store for her next book!!! Austin went from a different type of man in my eyes to super sexy man to freaking SWOON SWOON SWOON through it all and I know he has demons he is dealing with but you could just see his soul seeking a home! Such powerful supporting characters as well with Austin’s mom Grace, she held a strong hold of my heart during this book as well as a few others!
I am so honored I got to read this book! It was a little longer than I thought it was but oh ending it before I was ready would’ve been a crime. This book was meant to be this long and I CAN NOT wait to read the next one!!! You did a fantastic job Ms. Baucke and I’m a fan now!! Congrats!!
