Fantastic book about Love, Hope and Family
This was a terrific book which I enjoyed from start to finish. I could tell right form the first few pages that I was going to like the story and I wasn’t disappointed. The two main characters characters were fully developed and supporting characters, mostly family members and a few friends fit perfectly into the story and worked well with the subject matter.
The story was original, unpredictable and it was at times heavy subject matter. There were a few times I found myself on the verge of tears and the supporting characters would come in with some comic relief that would have me laughing and dry up my tears.
The story surrounds the heroine, Claire who is a triplet, the other two being brothers Cole and Liam who came out 5 and 10 minutes before her and are both over 6 feet tall while she is 5’6”. So they consider her their baby sister. When things go wrong for Claire, she moves in with her brothers and comes into contact with their best friend Jake, whom she met at the stadium when she went to run with her brothers after their soccer practice.
Claire has walls up and doesn’t want Jake to get past the walls, but he is persistent and she tells him her problems but he doesn’t care and they fall for each other, despite the objections of her brothers. Jake has an inner strength that is pretty awesome in this book and the way he loves Claire is the way every girl wants to be loved. I think that is one of that things that makes this book so great.
They go through some difficulties that are pretty overwhelming and neither of them know how to handle the situation. The emotional journey that the author, K. Dosal McLendon takes us on is sometimes heartbreaking and at other times uplifting. Overall it is a journey that is really worth going on.
There are times in life when when certain people get near the point of losing hope for one reason or another, I know what that feels like because there was a point in my life where I had chronic pain so bad that I had to realize it was never going to get any better and my life was never going to be the same as it was before. Losing hope is a terrible thing and the author deals with that very well in this story.
The next story focuses on Claire’s brother Cole and his childhood sweetheart. I can’t wait to read that one as well and I hope there is more of Claire and Jake in that story, so we can see how they are faring.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
