“I promise you Adaline, I will do everything in my power to never hurt you and I’m not walking away. These past few weeks have been some of the best in my life, you… you helped bring me back to life.”
Let’s just get it out of the way and admit I Love this Book!! It’s original and not just your typical romance. This book is one of those books that leaves you believing that regardless of how hard life can be at times, with enough patience and maybe a little help the best can happen for you too.
‘Where did this guy come from? It’s like he’s saying exactly what my heart needs to hear.’
Adaline (Addy) is struggling trying to make her aunts coffee shop a success and to honor her memory for all the wonderful things she did for her. Her luck seems to be on a downward spiral with no upturn in sight. Needing a break from the stress she heads over to the park across the street to her favorite bench trying to make sense of what to do next. A picture appears at her feet and the man in the picture is so breathtakingly handsome that she is compelled to take it with her.
As luck would have it Adaline gets the chance to meet this stranger who captured her attention and trust me when I say you will swoon over him, from his fun-loving personality and ability to make Addy forget about her worries and return to her former happy self. The adventures they go on leave Addy wanting more and looking forward to every time she sees him, although she doesn’t always know when that will be.
“I know we said this was a date, but call me selfish because when we have our real first date I want you all to myself,”
This is where things get interesting and will take you on a twist you won’t see coming. This also leaves me with a limited amount I can say without any spoilers. What I can say is the growth and love the characters have is wonderful. They realize that together they can move past their former heartache and regrets to focus on the future. Of course, it’s never as simple as that, there are ups and downs along with a few setbacks but their love shines through. I highly recommend this book and I can’t wait for what J.E. Benoit has in store for us next!
“Tell me this is real, Adaline. I’ve dreamt of seeing you in my bed so many times, tell my I’m not dreaming now,” he pleads.
