First of all, bring out the box of tissues because you will need a bunch by the time you’ve absorbed the last word and closed the book.
I did experience some irritations, but they had nothing to do with the writing style. For one of them, Alexis drove me nuts! She was so wrapped up in her job that she couldn’t eke out enough moments in her work-focused life to be active in her daughter’s life. And irritation number two was Cece’s snarky attitude. Granted, she is a teenager and that’s who they tend to be. But it was still irritating to see how little respect she had for her mother.
All of that was balanced out by Tommy. His love for, and patience with, Alexis and Cece were beyond amazing. I fell in love with him and his commitment, emotional strength, and down to earth personality. Is there really a man like him out there? If so, I want to meet him!
Thank you to NetGalley and William Morrow Paperbacks for an ARC in exchange for my honest review. This book is one you will not be able to put down once you’ve read the first word. The story is a beautiful portrait of love, anger, loss, relationships, growth, insecurity, and healing. Put this on your to-be-read list so you can enjoy the myriad of emotions you will experience as you flip through the pages as fast as you can.
