Dr Aspen Zimmerman has known love and tragically lost it. She’s estranged from her mother. She lives with one of her best friends, a fellow doctor. She’s been ticking over for eleven years, mostly alone or with ‘safe’ guys, who don’t demand more that she’s willing or able to give. She’s avoided feeling anything really deep and meaningful.
“I want her by my side. I want her lips, her body. I want her soul. Most of all, I want to give her my heart.”
Anderson ‘Hawk’ Hawkins has never been in love. He’s been devoted to his military career, and now he works for a company who walks the fine line between legal and unlawful - all for the greater good. He’s doesn’t have relationships. It's definitely uncharted territory for him.
When they first meet, there’s an immediate connection between them. He sparks feelings in Aspen that jump start her heart to life and scare her. She makes him feel emotions that are alien to him and prompt him to re-evaluate his lifestyle.
““I hate that I like being around him, he makes me…feel.” Feel different. Feel cherished. Feel alive.”
Anderson’s mother, Sophia, is Aspen’s neighbour and very ill. The two are drawn together through their mutual chemistry and their care of Sophia. As they grow closer, Aspen has to overcome her fear of falling in love, again, while Anderson has to deal with the prospect of losing a loved one, as well as trying to show Aspen that he’ll be there to catch her. On top of all this, there’s his job, which brings a whole host of dangers.
“Sometimes the best part of the journey is falling, gliding, and never letting it go.”
This was a really moving and heartbreaking story. It was about loss, healing, friendship, forgiveness, trust, but most of all, it’s about the power of love, in all its forms. It was about two people who fought hard to overcome fears and obstacles so they could have a future together. There were also plenty of sexy moments and funny moments. Anderson and Aspen were a beautiful pairing.
“Life doesn’t have to be long; it has to be well lived.”
To me, Anderson had a massively high swoon factor – he was gentle and patient with Aspen when he needed to be but he pushed when he needed to. He seemed to know her so well and could see that her body warred with her mind. Above all, he never stopped caring and never stopped believing that he and Aspen could have a future together. Aspen is a strong person with a lot of issues but when life makes her stop and think about what’s REALLY important, only then is she willing to face her fears head-on and fight for what her heart desires.
Without giving away any real spoilers, a couple of things in this novel really resonated with me. I identified with certain things and completely empathised. Fair warning: you may well need tissues to get your through this book!
I could blame my mother and her loud voice. She’s part Greek and part Puerto Rican. Unfortunately, her entire family lacks volume control. They scream ‘how was your day, sweetie?’ The same they yell, ‘pick up your room before I turn your hide red with my belt.’
This is right, my heart agrees and my soul demands it.
Anyone can make your heart beat, not many will shake your soul,
You know why I don’t weight much? … It’s because the only part left of me is my soul. It’s light, but able to carry all the love I accumulated throughout the years. That’s all I’m taking when I leave.
I lost my breath several times while reading this book. The storyline and writing were poignant and so very thoughtful; I was quickly swept up by the narrative and transported into Anderson and Aspen’s world. The characters were compelling, endearing, and highly relatable. I was captivated by the dichotomy of Anderson and what and how he was dealing with the extreme shifts in his life. His mother was fading away before him and while he was grieving and coming to terms to a future without his last remaining relative, he was still willing to open his heart for the first time, to an extremely complicated and wounded woman, who was his mother’s neighbor. I adored these strong, intelligent, and appealing characters and was immediately engaged and mesmerized by their story. Written in my favorite form of dual POV, the story was well paced and artfully constructed. Ms. Burgoa has mad skills and strong word voodoo. Once I started reading, I was unwilling and unable to put my kindle down for longer than was absolutely necessary. Sigh. She is apparently as addicting as cheesecake, but thankfully, not as caloric. This was only my second experience reading Ms. Burgoa’s magical words, although it was more than enough to compel me into adding her entire backlist to my TBR.
