In this book, we follow Lily and Luke as they meet and fall in love after experiencing a deep heartbreak in their past.
Lily found out on her wedding day that her fiancée had been sleeping with her sister and that her mother knew about it. Feeling betrayed by her whole family she swears off men all together but when she meets Luke, that swear goes right out the window.
Luke is in a deep denial in life as he lost his long term girlfriend in a car accident that he feels responsible for. He doesn’t think that he would ever find love again until Lily moves in next door and suddenly he feels alive again for the first time.
Luke and Lily have a lot of their own issues that they need to work through. No doubt that the biggest issue is trust for Lily as she was essentially betrayed by her whole family but Luke opens her eyes and makes her see that he’s not like her family and that he wouldn’t hurt her. Getting a chance to read about Luke and Lily letting love in and not letting it stop them is moving and makes you believe that there really might be a thing as fate.
The side characters were a nice addition to the story, even though it was a little too perfect. All of Luke’s friends were able to find a relationship with Lily’s two friends. While it does happen, it just seemed a little too perfect that it would happen that way. The way that Lynn explained was able to justify it but there were times when you were just like ‘well that worked out nicely’.
The ending is perhaps the only bad part of the book. There is a big incident that happens and then there is a quick resolution. There is no build no real ending. It’s so quickly resolved that you really can’t say it’s a cliffhanger because there really isn’t that moment that makes you want to read further. You’re just stuck there wondering if there was supposed to be more.
There is at least one more book in the series and it’s unclear what it’s going to be about as there is no blurb on Amazon or Goodreads. Perhaps we will get more of the story between Luke and Lily or maybe we will be able to follow one of the other couples in the story.
