I was about to marry the man of my dreams.
We had it all; a life that most could only wish for. I felt like the luckiest woman in the world.
Then, in the blink of an eye, it was taken from me.
Now I can’t grasp how to move forward.
I don’t even think I want to.
Whether I’m dead or alive, my happily ever after is NEVER going to happen.
Emotional doesn’t even begin to describe this book. I spent a good 200 of these pages bawling like an idiot. Also, just know that you’re going to need a clean shirt or a basket full of tissues near you. The story was beautiful, sweet, gut wrenching and wholesome.
You could feel the pain that Bailey was going through as she tried to make sense of the tragedy. I mean, it would have been bad if this shit happened in the beginning of the book – BUT NO. You get to see Major & Bailey fall in love. You get to see how sweet and kind he is. You get to feel how deeply they love each other and look forward to the rest of their lives together. And then your heart is ripped from your chest. I think this was the part where I started attempting to regulate my breathing to hide the hiccup sobs.
Vince is Major’s best friend and a major dick. Calling him a womanizer is actually sort of kind to man-whores. He’s crass, tasteless and rude, but he’s like Major’s brother so Bailey puts up with him. You see where the book is headed, but it’s actually more complicated than you think. I was amazed with Bailey’s bravery, encouraged by her good heart, and uplifted by her actions. Vince also undergoes some major changes of his own – which were so very welcomed.
I seriously loved this book but it doesn’t get the full five stars from me because I feel like we missed out on a few really important parts of Vince and Bailey’s relationship. I sort of understand why the author did it, but I still feel that reading those parts would have been beautiful in its own way. Even though this story is pretty damn sad, it’s really well done. It’s about how to move on from tragedy – how to learn to love again and what that love looks like. This book grabs a hold of your heart and doesn’t let go – go read! BRING TISSUES.
[I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review]
I needed to get myself up off the floor and prepare to bury my very best friend, the man of my dreams and love of my life. On this day I’d say goodbye to him in front of a crowd of people that knew and loved him. On this day I’d bury our hopes and dreams in that casket with him. I’d say farewell to the future that would never be; to the children we’d never make. I’d bury my soul with him, because that’s where it belonged. On this particular day a part of me would die too, much like the moment I knew he was gone.
