MY RATING FOR IT: 5 STARS
Charlotte and Nathan were supposed to be forever. They grew up together. Their families were intertwined. Charlotte was Nathan’s first love. Nathan was Charlotte’s first everything.
Until they weren’t.
How do you hold on to the person you know in your heart you are supposed to be with when everything and everyone in the universe is telling you it’s over?
How many times does a heart-break?
When is enough…..enough?
How long is forever?
MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT
*ARC kindly provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*
LOVED THE COVER!!
This book was on my iPad for a few weeks , I didn’t know what it was about , i just read a little of the blurb and kind of intrigued me.
I most certainly didn’t know it was a spin of something else, but no worries it can be read as a stand alone.
I’ve been meaning to write this review but so many words come to my mind about this book i just can’t get it straight , I love it that is the only clear thing right now, it was the sweetest swoon of a book .
This story is divided in to two parts.
In the first one they are teens , and the book starts right on the day of Charlotte’s procedure for a brain tumor , we don’t know right away about what it exactly the relationship between the both of them , but it’s clear that it’s an important one and everybody knows it even the parent.
Slowly we realized that Charlotte is very much in love with Nathan , and probably has been for ages, she also think that he only sees her as the little sister just like Nick his brother. but she couldn’t be more wrong because by this point and due to her illness Nathan is realizing in his heart what his mind has known all along , that Charlotte is for him , she is his to protect and love , since forever and always.
Charlotte was meant to be mine. I knew it when she was born. Nick is her brother, but I’m her protector.
So as all hormones fulled teen’s ,they get together , all this after much consideration from Nathan’s side, and they star to discover love and lust , well more like Nathan is teaching Charlotte , because he’s been around the block a bit.
This part of the story really tugs at my heart , because young love and young lust is so pure and raw in its truest of forms , when one is learning to love everything is strong and feeling are so true ,that I really ache reading some parts, I was so happy for them and so sad because I knew that the storm was close.
And so … as Charlotte’s illness progresses she eventually has to leave to another country , and feeling lonely and sad some bad decisions and very unfortunate situations happens especially on Nathan’s side , so they split up , an then was when the water works started … for me at least
She writes him this letters and he hardly ever responds , because he fells unworthy of her love.
After some time passes thing get harder and she has to let go of him
I’m still waiting for you, just like I promised. Miss you a thousand times more than the last letter,
It’s been six years! …I’m just done, Nate. Done.
I love you. I will always love you, but for my sake and probably for yours too, I have to move on.
It was so dam sad I could not read because the tears where bothering me … but I had hope because now comes the second part .
In the second parte they are both adults and they have both suffer from their separation, and they havent been able to move on , so Nate realizes that he’s only half a man without Charlotte and he’s ready to search for her and beg her forgiveness and another chance … and her’s where thing get seriously steamy … I mean DAYUMMMM!! ( yeah it was THAT good)
His possessive side is there and he is a very alpha male , but he adores her and he would do anything for her , he worships her with his heart and most definitely with his body.
“I am your shield, your weapon. Fight for me too, Charlotte.”
Then life happened and they have to go thru some stuff that are very unfair but , im not telling anything more , because I have said too much already.
I just feel the need to share this book with anybody who wants to read it , it’s very good I must say it’s one of my top 5 for the year , because I really felt it , it made feel things and long for things that I felt as a teen. and that what’s good about books , they transport us to places forgotten and they make us feel again .
Spoiler!!!!!. IT HAS WHAT I NEED IN A BOOK A HEA!!!
So I think I’m most definitely a Jen Frederick fan NOW !!!!
