I don't want to reveal the storyline but fast forward 7 years and our characters meet each other again. Old feelings are brought to the surface.
Can they have a relationship or has too much changed in their lives?
I've been in bit of a book slump recently, fed up of reading the same old repetitive things but I got this (I think) as a freebie and it drew me in straight away with effortless writing.
I can't really pinpoint why I loved it so much and that's frustrating but I read it in one sitting, I didn't want to put it down so I didn't.
Blake and Penny's story pulled at my heartstrings, I was rooting for them throughout and I fell hard for another fictional character. I love when a book can do that to me.
This was a new author to me but I'd definitely read more of her work.
I enjoyed the storyline of this book. 2 foster care kids who help each other survive the ill treatment and abuse handed out from their foster carers. As Blake and Penny mature so does their feelings for one another. Both praying for the day that turn 18 and can leave the care system for good and be together.
As it normally does, fate steps in and they are torn apart with no warning and with no explanation. For 7 years, Blake and Penny cling onto life without their soul mate. Forcing themselves to carry on and try to survive. When they meet as counsellors at a summer camp for foster kids they slowly come to realise that neither were given the full and honest reasons of how and why they lost touch.
I won't go into other details in the second half of this book which would help explain my 3 1/2 star rating for this story. That would give huge spoilers. I will say that there are parts of the reasons given for their separation make no sense to me. Blake's character is a strong, take no nonsense, determined young man who would not allow some of the situations to remain unanswered and basically to give up so easily.I really feel his full character would not have accepted things quite so easily. This character in particular would have pulled me in more if his strong will and determination had been continued throughout. I liked this book but sadly didn't love it.
I enjoy this author’s unique writing style. This story is told in a dual POV, of Penny in the present, and Blake in the past, which is intriguing. I was hooked from the very beginning, and look forward to reading more of this authors work in the future. Recommend to all lovers of second chance romances!
This story is amazing. I couldn't put it down after starting.
We meet Penny, who was put in foster system after her parents died in a car crash she survived. She was a scared young girl, lost and upset. Until she meet Blake, one of the boys who was in the foster home. They became fast friends, sneaking out of the house to No Mans Land, to watch the stars. Their love grew for each other. They spent as much time as they could together. Until one day Blake disappeared. She worked odd end jobs, trying to have enough money to pay for her rent in egg roll smelling flat. It all changed, one summer when she joined Camp Chance, her life was turned upside down for the better.
We meet Blake, who has been in the foster system for years after his mother died and his dad ended up in prison. He didn't like that more girls was coming into the house, resented when he heard a new girl joined the house. But that all changed when he saw the broken girl in front of him, who wrapped her arms around herself like she was going to fall apart if she didn't hug herself.
This story is simply amazing. You couldn't help but feel for Blake and Penny, and cheer them on hoping it will end happy.
I recommend this story to everyone who loves happily ever afters and second chances.
Penny and Blake first meet when they are at the same foster home and an instant bond is formed. But life at the Freeman's foster home is far from normal and Penny and Blake make a pact to escape as soon as they turn 18. Things don't quite go to plan when a stranger comes and takes Blake away and Penny is left heartbroken. Years later, Penny and Blake bump into each other and old feelings return. But is Blake the same person he was when they younger and the same Blake she fell in love with?
An emotional roller-coaster but beautifully written and with so much emotion it was felt within the story.
