“Goodbyes are final, and you’re my future.”
Two five star reads on the bounce and two five star reads that have had me run the gamut of my emotions. Stephie Walls captured my attention from the first word and never let me go till the end and even then, I wasn’t ready to let these characters go. Sometimes a book just envelopes you and that is what this one did, the characters, the secondary characters and the plot, the complete trifecta. Every word had a purpose, every scene captivating and capturing those heart felt emotions that I crave in a read. Stephie Walls took a headline news story and made it her own, a story that happens time and time again, she took a risk and it more than paid off. Yes, at times this book had me in floods of tears, such was the emotional intensity that this author delivered, a tough topic but the author balanced this out perfectly with one of the most endearing and bewitching love stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I adored this book and it will be on my favourites list at the end of the year.
“Situations like these are never easy for anyone. There are no winners here…”
I believe in fate, I believe that everything happens for a reason, I believe that sometimes life makes it hard so that you appreciate it when it isn’t. Life is never plain sailing, it tests you, it makes you stronger and no one encapsulated this more than our heroine, Lissa. Lissa was a character I wanted to hug, to squeeze so tight, a woman that had experienced something so bad I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemy. My heart broke for this woman, my heart totally and utterly decimated, smashed to smithereens but she made it out the other side…just. If ever a person deserved a happy ever after, it was Lissa. Lissa’s past was tragic, but her future needn’t be, she needed to let go, forgive but never forget. Lissa was selfless, she wanted to be the best person she could, she strived for perfection, but sometimes perfect is overrated, you just need to be you.
“I can’t listen to people pull this apart and not remember that everyone lost – there are nothing but victims still standing…including you.”
Dan was an incredible character a man in the right place at the right time and as it plays out with the right person. A date gone wrong that put him in the path of Lissa, the stars aligned, fate worked its magic. Dan was perfect, he was resilient, he never gave up, he was forgiving, understanding, supportive and loyal to a fault. The reformed manw***e who had finally met the woman to settle him. He had found his forever and no matter what life threw at them, he wanted them to make it and he would do everything he could to ensure it happened. I adored him.
“The part of you that leads, that alpha male who protects, that man who calms my storms and eases my fears. For the first time in years, I feel safe in someone else’s company…”
Dan and Lissa were perfect for one and other, from their first meet to their histories, to their future. They just were so well suited. The chemistry between these was palpable and yet this side to their relationship was never the crux. The depth that Stephie Walls gave these characters was overwhelming and I felt I was living their life with them. The character connection was on point, the dialogue perfection, the plot gripping, the romance…be still my beating heart.
“…if I were lucky enough to be married to a man who believed I brought him life, there’s no way I’d go backward.”
While these characters have appeared in the Bound and Freed duet you do not need to have read this first. They were secondary characters and always had me intrigued. However, if you have not read Bound and Freed and intend to do so, then this book does contain spoilers for that duet.
“…I was just thankful I got a second chance, a do-over, a mulligan. Mother Nature smiled at me, Karma sent me her favour, and God gave me Dan.”
Friendship is a beautiful thing and none more so than the characters in this book. This book was all about a friendship that was so strong, so loyal…you can’t choose your family, but you can choose your friends and these two couples chose well. Such a stunning book, one I will never forget and one that I will re-read again. Seriously adored this book no matter how much it broke me at times.
The author has written a wonderful story of two people who deserve all the love and happiness that life can offer them.
Dan is out on another bad date and as things begin to deteriorate, one good thing happens, he meets Lissa. There is an instant chemistry between the two. More than that however, is the wonderful bond they have. Lissa is carrying more than her fair share of life's troubles and Dan is the quintessential good guy.
I really didn't want this book to end. The story was beautiful, the characters, even the friends were so likeable that i found myself wishing for a happy ever after for everyone.
While Dan & Lissa are mentioned in two previous books by the author you don't have to read them to follow along in this book.
There are some books that you start to read that get the cogs turning as you try to process where the story is going or how the character got there. Stephies book doesn't just get the cogs turning, this book will have them spinning out of control, smoke coming off them as you devour the words on the pages, your mind trying to piece together the little bits hidden in the story line, the bits you know are going to lead to that epic moment when it all just smacks you in the face, the final piece that tears your heart apart, the bit that clicks into place tripping the flood gates open as you read on despite the sobs rising from you.
Stephie has written a heartbreakingly beautiful book that will draw you and not let go.
After having read Bound and Freed, I didn't really know what to expect of this book, I knew it was gonna be the story of Dan and Lissa, but I never knew how much this book would tear apart my heart.
Stephie kept skipping back and forth between current time and Lissa's past and that really kept this interesting to me. The past was written in a way that you got kind of the gist of what happened, but it really kept you curious as to what exactly did since you wouldn't find out the full story until about the end. This way of writing kept you invested in Lissa's story and made you almost live it with her.
The present with Dan.... It made my heart melt. I love Lissa's selflessness and Dan's compassion. They just fit perfectly.
All in all, a well written addition to the Bound Duet, but also very possible to read it as a stand alone, which I really appreciate!
