How do you hold on to a love that is slowly slipping away from you?
Can you let go of the past when you know what is in the future?
And how do you cope when you know that every kiss is a countdown to goodbye?
This is the story of a love affair, of Ryan and Molly and how they fell in love and were torn apart. The first time Molly kissed Ryan, she knew they’d be together forever. Six years and thousands of kisses later she’s married to the man she loves. But today, when Ryan kisses her, Molly realises how many of them she wasted because the future holds something which neither of them could have ever predicted…
Hands up if you are a fan of heartbreaking love story! I definitely enjoy a tear or two, (or bucket loads of tears in this case), when reading fiction. Sad and teary non-fiction books don’t exactly have the same effect on me, they are just a bit too sad, feel far too personal and definitely a bit too real. Hence why, when it comes to tears staining my books, I prefer to reach out for fiction.
Admittedly I haven’t heard of this book when one of my friends recommended it to me, but I knew exactly who I would enjoy reading it with the most. My reading buddies Kate and Megs who swam with me through pools of tears when reading Me Before You and following two books from the series.
This story jumps from past to present to even further past and it might seem at times a bit confusing, but it’s so worth to keep reading. You will go through all different emotions and feelings about main characters. You will love them, dislike them at times, be annoyed with them a lot and your heart will break for them by the time the book ends.
I will not reveal much as this book needs to be rather read than talked about, but I can highly recommend it and if you have a friend or two to enjoy reading this book with and discuss along the way, you hit a jackpot.
I can safely say, I will add Ali Harris to my list of authors I need to read more books by, she has a lovely collection of published novels I’m yet to explore.
