♥‘Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along' ~ Remi ♥
One night, young, Charlotte Anders' life is ripped apart, never to be the same again. Her best friend makes a bad decision and suffers the irrevocable consequences. Quickly wind forward.......two years later and we see Lottie, as she is known to her friends, begin her freshman year of college; she is ready to make new friends, not forget, but move on with her life.....
Zack & Zan, old school friends, make an unwelcome reappearance into her life at college!! Unwelcome because they are the brothers responsible for the devastation and Lottie cannot see past this!!! Do they deserve a second chance??
The story is told from the POV of both Lottie and Zan and I loved hearing their inner feelings. Zan is the character I fell in love with the most!!! My heart ached for him, for his memories and regret, his helplessness and anxiety. He will never be able to change what happened that night, if only he could.....
“It’s one of the last things I think about before I go to bed and one of the first when I wake up. I see the scars every day.”
Zan has a book of poetry by a 13th century man called Rumi; the poems have been his saviour many times in the past. They help ease his tension, his dark moments when things all get too much, he’s memorised the words and they often pour out to Lottie~“I couldn’t stop thinking about her.”
“I f*cking wanted her. So much that my pants got tight walking behind her…”
“She made me want to grab her and kiss her and run my fingers through her hair and promise to bring her the moon.”
Ahhhhh...sigh.....Zan, the lovely young man with so much on his shoulders. I really felt for him, he warmed my heart with the person he was and I wanted Lottie to see that too!!!!!
There was still her best friend, Lexie, the girl whose life had changed......“It’s between you and her and I choose her.”
“Why can’t you be someone else?”“He lay on top of me, skin to skin, chest to chest. It was the most connected I’d ever been to another person.”
“She fit into my life and filled up all sorts of cracks I never knew I had. She made my life feel complete. Whole.”
“You amaze me on a daily basis, but this…it blows me away……..Because you’re you……You’re so selfless and kind……” Yay!!! Lottie realized he is wonderful!!!!! XXX
“I’m so glad we found our way to each other,” she said, before giving me one slow, sweet kiss. It was an always kiss.”
I fell in love with the rest of the cast also, they all added something to the story, Katie with her pink fetish, and her lovely twin Will bought 'twindar' and a love of 'Star Wars you like' I'm not going to talk about Zach, except to say, he's a bad egg!!!!
The characters in this story are young but the emotions are mature, real, heart breaking; I cried, but by the end I had a smile of contented happiness on my face. I felt all was right in the world of books. ♥ ♥ ♥click to get More Wishes & Graphics“I never thought I could be this happy……I never thought I deserved it.”
