*I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review*
Having never read a book by Rachel Del, I wasn't really sure what to expect. With that being said, it did take me a couple tries before falling head over heels for this book. I blame my end of year reading mood but whatever the reason, the funk did fade & I am OH SO GLAD it did.
Rachel Del managed to create characters that I both fell in love with as well as hated at times. I grew frustrated with our main characters Lily & Nathan numerous times. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though. The real-life struggles & emotions of these characters were a welcomed breath of fresh air. It was nice to get away from the all too common 'insta-love' factor. I mean, I'm a sucker for insta-love but realistic is good too.
It may have taken me a couple tries to get into this book but once I did, I was hooked. I have to be honest though, the ups & downs that I experienced while reading it though... a full-blown rollercoaster of a ride. Haha. My anxiety was on high alert at times wondering what was going to happen with each new scenario. Some may not enjoy that feeling but for me personally, it seems to be a driving force sometimes. I mean- I literally couldn't put the book down until I found out what was going to happen next.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone look for a real-life read that shares a realistic look into life after divorce & what it's like to get a second chance at love.
Rachel Del is a head-in-the-clouds introvert, homebody and thirty-something writer currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada with her husband and son. Originally from Ontario, Canada she works in publishing and enjoys a cold glass of Chardonnay, road trips and singing in the shower.
Rachel started writing in 1991 with her first journal … and never stopped. She wrote her first novel in the 6th grade, something hopelessly sappy and laced with spelling mistakes.
When she isn’t working or writing, you can find her chasing after her son, reading or sipping on black coffee.
