Ok here it is….
I have no hair left….
My nails are chewed off……
This author has the ability to stop everything around me, and make me glued to her books. Yet this one, I feel is a bit different than her previous ones. Not a bad thing, I absolutely adored it. Yes it drove me nuts with the angst, I literally lost my hair and my nails in the process of reading this book. Heck, I’m lucky I still have a kindle left with the banging it took.
From the start of this book, I was stolen into the world of Magnolia & Hollis. From small children to grown adults, we are taken on the journey of the most loyal friendship, a friendship that is above all else, fiercely loyal friends that will do anything and everything for each other, right???? Yet, who can communicate openly, who can say “hey I want this” or “I love you more than just my best friend” even as far as loving on each other in EVERY WAY. This story literally wrenched my heart, because its real life, in so many ways. It was simply amazing to watch these two characters grow, not just with each other, but personally. OF course there were circumstances that I hated, because, it made me bang my head, but it made the story that much better. And when it reaches a time where these two go their separate ways, my god, I just about stopped reading it because I was like “NOOOOOOOOOOOO”.
What it comes down to, you love a lifetime story of two characters who love each other beyond measure, grow together, then grow apart, and then see each other and wonder, can we overcome the past, the differences, the changes? Can they really be what each other needs? Sometimes the truth sets you free. A good solid 4 star read for me!! So you love New adult, coming to age books, this is one you do not want to miss!!! Hold on for the ride though, but I promise, if you are like me, you will love the ending❤️
