I'm finding it hard to put
into words my feelings about this book. I loved it and I hated it all
at the same time (though there was much more love than hate). I
couldn't put it down while I was reading it, and I couldn't stop
thinking about when I finished. There were parts of the story that I
did not like or agree with (thus the hate), but at the same time, I have
an appreciation for the story and the points of view of the characters
that may be different from mine.
I knew very little about the
book before I picked it up, and I think that is a good thing. So I
won't spoil too much here. Don't read too much about this book; just
read the book yourself and let the story unfold for itself!
is the story of Will, a man suffering serious injuries from a
motorcycle accident, and Lou, the woman hired to care for him. And it
is a romance, though that term is misleading. It is a love story, but
it definitely doesn't read like a traditional romance novel. The cover
makes it look like a light and fluffy romance, but this is a book that
you shouldn't judge by its cover.
It is a fairly predictable
story, and I had a feeling where it was headed early on in the book.
But it was still enjoyable and unforgettable to read the story of Will
and Lou and about how they ended up where they did. It is a book that I
will remember for a very long time.
I really would like to write more about this book, but I can't write any more without spoiling it. So, go read the book and then come back and talk to me about it!!
