He was the only one for me.
When I close my eyes I still see the way he looked at me all those years ago. The way it felt to have someone so amazing in my life especially after my parents abandoned me. The bond that only a childhood friend could understand. He was my balance and never let me fall But I lied to him…
She was my better half.
I remember the fear she hid under her smile when I met her. There were so many adventures that we lived a hundred lifetimes in our minds. She was the reason I got up in the morning. She was my gravity and kept me grounded. But then she lied…
He kept my heart when I broke his.
I was never going to see him again. He would always hate me, even if he knew the truth. It would be better this way. If only he hadn't kept my heart.
She threw my heart away when I wanted her to have it the most.
She ruined every memory that we made with a simple sentence. My life would be better without her. If only she hadn't kept my heart.
At forty thousand feet the Earth shifted, and planets aligned. My world came into focus and for once I was no longer unsteady and ready to fall. As the wings of the plane drifted over the icy cold ocean my heart warmed when I saw him. Once I saw his eyes and the way he was looking at me I knew…
He was the balance I always needed
...And she was mine.
Ten Golden Apples (stars) for this book
Apples and Oranges have nothing on the two main characters who couldn't be more perfect for each other. London and Logan were both young and abandoned when they met. Both yearning for a family they didn't have until they found each other. In their friendship, they found family.
In this book, I felt anger, sadness, hate, but I also felt love, compassion, happiness, and even my own yearning to want to help them. I have to admit that it has been a while since a book both had me in love and in tears, but this one did it. I was crying tears into apple buckets.
Ada is still the most amazing secondary character. I want to meet her in real life just to hang out. Seeing Brooklyn and Kate all grown up and outside their books was fun as they matured and settled into their lives. Mark is as always delicious, but he has nothing on Logan. Sister Katherine, however, always made me wonder if she put trackers into them as kids cause they were always gone. I loved seeing the Montgomery family finally get some closure from all parties. And then the sex; SOMEONE BRING ME A FAN and put it under my desk because this book had a couple of scenes that made me blush.
This author has never failed to surprise me with her writing. This book is unlike any of her others, and to be honest I don't really like books that flash from past to present because they are confusing, but this one wasn't. I was right there with the characters every step of the way and loved every minute.
Elizabeth York has brought book after book of romantic stories to make you swoon, that captivate you with suspense, that keep you locked into the story, and this one is no different. I have to admit I went in with doubts and came out a fangirl. For me, this book is five stars because it is the action-packed swoon-worthy romantic story of the year.
