So, let’s get the cover out of the way first. It’s my absolute favourite cover from this author, yet. I couldn’t stop looking at it when it was first revealed.
In terms of the story, I love how this author constantly challenges herself with her storylines. They are often intricate and emotionally challenging.
“Loving a woman like Willow Beesley is heaven and hell. She’s the beautiful fire I want to touch even when I know the blazing flames might destroy me.”
Hunter and Willow are two broken people, both scarred by traumatic and troubling childhoods.
“I’d rather have my heart broken than miss the chance to be with you.”
Willow is fiercely independent with a huge defensive wall around her heart. Hunter sees through to the core of her and wants to be the one she turns to in time of need. However, one scary episode has their fledgling relationship splintering, which is a catalyst to their individual journeys to self-help, self-acceptance and, ultimately, back to each other.
This story was sexy, heartbreaking, heart-melting, and incredibly moving. It had all the feels, and as much beauty as there was ugliness, as Hunter and Willow conquer their fears.
“Love makes us one. All of you in me, all of me in you. Everything you are is now fused with who I am.”
Willow is a hugely complex young woman and I feel that she had the biggest journey of the two, especially when she realises that her perception of her childhood and her family is not quite how they actually are. Hunter is a gorgeous soul. He’s looking for an abiding love, someone to take care of, someone to take care of him, in return. I adored his romantic gestures. I adored his tender care of her. I loved that he never gave up on her, even when it seemed like he had.
Again, as with this author’s other novels, family is a big theme. Family through friendship, as well as through blood.
Such a fantastic story and thoroughly recommend.
I don’t trust businessmen, lawyers, or gynecologists… My ex wanted to become a lady’s doctor… I caught him exploring my best friend’s vagina. He called it practice.
Willow, no one is normal… I, myself have several quirks. Since we both live in the land of oddities, I propose we give this a chance.
Life is a sequence of breaths.
…us is a noun that I hope we use often and forever.
Ms. Burgoa has turned out an exceptionally well-crafted and researched manuscript with indelible and catastrophically flawed yet alluring characters. Her well-honed word craft was razor-sharp in this compelling and heart-squeezing tale. The writing was emotive and devastating with a taut and angsty storyline. The character of Willow was mentally ill and untreated, unstable, and an emotional roller coaster that kept me on edge; her rants often had me cringing and holding my breath. Willow was prone to intense and irrational mood swings from elation to bone deep hatred or hopeless despair within a breath. She felt every emotion to a painful extreme and was a total washout with verbal expression for honest communication, although she had some awareness of her behavior and employed her acting skills to maintain a façade. Willow exploded and imploded with regularity, which was exhausting for her, everyone in her life, and for me as a reader as her inner musings and blowouts seemed to hold me in a state of apprehension due to Ms. Burgoa’s exceptional narrative and word voodoo. I adored the characters of Hunter and his quirky brothers. However, Hunter was also an anxious mess with a tender, sweet, and romantic soul and the heart of a poet. I felt conflicted, as I feared Willow was not a healthy choice for him. The sweet things he said would have sounded cheesy from most men, but coming from him they were lovely and swoon-worthy. Sigh; to balance my chi, I definitely need to read an amusing comedy next.

This story is one of finding out who your true self is alone before you can be in a relationship. You have to be able to love yourself before you can commit to another person. The issue of family is a big theme in this book as well. Willow and Hunter both come from a family situation that is less than ideal. Sometimes your friends become your "family" when your blood is no where to be found. I loved that Willow's sister and Hunter's brothers all become a family unit together. They were a key component in helping Hunter and Willow find their way back to each other.
This story was heartbreaking but so well written. I've never experienced anyone with these disorders, but the author painted such a vivid picture of what they were going through that I feel as though I've experienced it. These are strong characters and a family that I fell in love with. I can't wait for the other books from this family! And of course I hope that we will get a chance to see where Willow and Hunter are down the road since they still have a journey ahead of them.
I can't possibly explain how reading this heals a person but I'm going to try.
I love reading. I read because I dream of the perfect romance. I long for the lives of spontaneous gifts, flowers, and proofs of "love". I think I feel more of Willow than most people could. I wasn't abandoned as a child. It just felt like I was. My parents had to focus on my terminally ill brother and I became an afterthought. The pain in this book is real and it hurts.
The beauty is incredible. Most romances are the idealistic meet cute and then some mild turbulence and bam HEA. However, real life isn't so clean. Real life isn't so perfect. Yes, I read to escape or dream but this book gave me an odd sense of hope.
In a world where the motto is "love cures all", it's hard to be damaged in love. You see beautiful representations of what it should be. You should be cured. You shouldn't be lost in a fog of despair. You shouldn't need more...but reality isn't the same.
This book gives hope to those lost. It gave hope to a woman lost in a fog of despair who loves dearly but can't help thinking she missed the bus. It is a healing story and guess what...it's okay to be "broken."
I cried and loved every minute of their heartache and heartbreak. It's funny how in the beginning I wasn't sure I would connect with two very different from me characters...guess that joke was on me. You don't need to suffer from a disorder or a fear to connect to these characters. They connect to your insecurities and your fears and its almost cathartic the release it causes.
So my sappy, happy, sad story aside...it's an incredible book. And even though it ends better than I hoped, I'm still fighting tears. It was just perfect.
My only complaint is that I wanted more in an epilogue! But I hear there's more to come so I'll be here waiting impatiently. It was a great cast of characters here and I can't wait to meet up with them again soon!
Willow is a woman whose parents would abandon her and her sister while they traveled the world, leaving the siblings lost and confused. This childhood trauma has lead to her suffering from a constant state of flux, bouncing between emotions on a rollercoaster of feelings that she cannot control. Hunter lost his parents in 9/11 leaving a young boy not only parentless but also with no sense of safety in the world. He is agoraphobic and in constant search of a connection and making them in the wrong ways.
Claudia's story steeps you in these character's feelings in such a way that readers will be able to experience and relate to their disconcerted, jumbled mental states. I'm not a huge fan of angst but as Willow and Hunter fall for each, yet are unable to fully connect, Ms. Burgoa writing forces the reader to sink into the lives of her leads. In a deft balancing act, Ms. Burgoa gives readers a breath of air and levity so that you aren't overwhelmed and yet can remain invested in what happens as Willow and Hunter's journeys of self realization and healing blooms.
A wonderful read full of very real life people.
