NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
I could have put the typical blurb here.
Boy meets girl.
They fall in love.
Live happily ever after.
But this isn’t THAT story.
“Sometimes you have to find the patience to wait for good things instead of seeking it out.”
Sometimes you find a diamond in the rough. You search through Amazon looking for that “one book” hoping you find a gem. I’m notorious for reading tons of samples. After reading Micalea’s synopsis, I was more than intrigued. I immediately grabbed the sample and found myself one clicking after only a few pages. Next thing you know, it’s 1 am and I CAN’T. STOP. READING. Needless to say, thank God I didn’t have to work the next day or I would’ve been a hot mess. Waking up the next morning, I dove right back in. And, WOW, this book was EVERYTHING.
I’m a big believer in fate, everything happening for a reason (even though I know sometimes we won’t find out the “why” while we’re here. I find that books land in my lap when I need them the most and often it’s to teach me a lesson. Micalea’s book taught me lots of lessons. It wasn’t a story perfectly wrapped with a pretty red bow. It was real, it was raw, it was life. Her writing style is brilliant, you feel as if you are on a journey with these characters and come to know them as your friends. You will fall and you will fall hard. There were times I laughed out loud, and other times where I sobbed, big fat tears and was so grateful that I was home where no one could see me and my ugly cry outburst.
This is not your typical love story, but it is a beautiful one. There is a girl who meets a boy and they share a love so deep, so strong, so incredible that you actually have to catch your breath hoping that some day your own children find a love so pure. Happiness isn’t always easy to hold on to and sometimes you have to reach out of your comfort zone to find out where you fit. This is a story that teaches you to never give up, to hold onto your loved ones, cherish each and every moment and know that life doesn’t always turn out the way you thought it would, but God is it a beautiful journey.
I know I’m being vague, but I went into this story knowing NOTHING and you should too. Trust me, you do not want this story spoiled for you. This was the first book I’ve read by Micalea and it won’t be my last. Just an incredible, amazing story.
