Mary Jo☆☆☆
I loved many aspects of this story and liked others, but in the end, it didn't feel like it truly came together for me.

The flashbacks to the past traumas brought wonderful insight to Nick and Mia's story, but over half of the book was revisiting the past, which to me, interrupted the flow of the story. If the flashbacks had been written as perhaps a part 1 and 2, then with the current storyline, I think I would have liked the story more.

The pace of the current storyline advances quickly and the copy that I read didn't have any breaks or spacing to indicate that weeks or months elapsed since the previous paragraph.

I would like to read the next book in the series.

5 stars of amazing but heartbreaking story

This is not an easy story – in fact, this is a really tough second chance romance. The circumstances build up in such a tense way, taking us from when they first meet many, many years ago, to now, and then tracking back again and seeing what happened to cause the rift. Really agonising and beyond sad as it is all unfolds. I don't normally like stories which don't give us the story in a chronological order, but certainly this made it much more intense here. It takes a while to realise just how long they were together first time around – this is not a meet at school and split up for college timeline – this is much, much longer, and fundamentally much more painful.

Having said that, Hannah brings an unexpected lightness to the story and thanks to her, Nick and Mia do get their second chance.

I definitely want to read future books in the series, as this was well written and really made me think about how I would behave in that situation.
