There's a girl asleep by my bed. Her name's Sophie and she's the love of my life.
She doesn't know that. I've never told her.
I've been the biggest a$$hole the world has seen.
I want everything from her but I can't ask for it. I f*cked up, I'm probably dying, and it's too late for second chances…
This is a long standalone novella. It tells the story of Sophie, sister of Cosima (Merc's girl from Dark Child).
Wow I loved this book so much second chance at finding out the one you have loves after coming back from war and fighting to live through the cancer. This is a amazing read that grabbed me by the heart and soul.
Emotional... so good!
Griff and Sophie’s story... breath... hand at my chest trying to relieve the aches..swallow down my tears. I am a MESS after turning the last page of this book. Ms. Raven’s is back doing what she does best, taking me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. It is what I love most about her stories. Yes there is a tale to tell but all the feelings weaved throughout fills the heart often reducing me to a blubbering fool.
Griff broke my heart from page one. He is SOOO MISUNDERSTOOD. Adding all the medical issues in combination with his depression ugh I just wanted to hug him forever. Umm it didn’t hurt that he sounds like a complete hottie too (wink).
Sophie amazes me. She takes ownership to her misstep and is trying to make up for past wrongs with Griff. Her insecurities along with her desire to care for him give her a heart wrenching monolog.
I really loved this book and possibly need therapy after reading it (EEK). This is such a beautiful story. Happy Reading!
One of the best.....
This has probably been my favorite out of all Jo Raven’s books and yes, I have read them all!
This book was such an emotional read and really allowed you to take the journey with the character. We got a small glimpse of the characters in this book ( Sophie and Griffen) in another book Jo wrote about Merc & Cos (Sophie’s twin sister) called Dark Child.
Sophie and Griffen has been a couple for a short while when things fell apart for the couple. After some twists and turns Sophie shows up at Griffen’s door step to try to mend the broken bridges between them but learns a heart breaking truth. Not only does she need to win Griffen’s heart back but she has to stand by while he fights for his life becoming a shell of his former self.
Griffen lacks communication skills when it comes to Sophie everything he does or says seems to cause another hurdle for them. Now she is determined to be back in his life no matter what he says or does. While he fights for his life he is fighting to keep Sophie at a distance. But when it comes to matters of the heart things don’t always go as planned. With the possibility of death looming over this couple is rekindling the flames really worth the risk of a broken heart?
This book is absolutely a must read for anyone even if you haven’t read any other Jo Ravens books you can read this one. It made me laugh, cry and even smile which makes this a fantastic book in my opinion. I wish I could write even longer review but I don’t want to give out any spoilers! This is a A+++++ read for my 2019 book log!
