I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and grey eyes--light grey, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn't. That year, we found out how much he wasn't. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash.
Now I'm twenty-seven, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him--Dr. Jones.
This book by Ella James absolutely blew me away!! I've never read anything by this author before and I devoured the book in just a few short hours! This book made me laugh, smile, and cry. Crying while reading a book is something I rarely do and I couldn't hold back the tears as the story continued. James had such a way with words and this book consumed my soul! I've heard good things about this book from book friends and it did look angsty but I had no idea I would feel the way I did after reading. My heart is heavy yet content after reading.
This book was told in dual points of view. It was split up into two parts, past and present. I loved the character development and slow agonizing burn between Landon and Evie. You felt everything the characters felt and I couldn't help but get sucked in and invested heavily. This book at times had me wanting to go inside my kindle and give each one of them a hug. Parts of this story wasn't easy to read but I'm happy I did and this won't be a book I forget anytime soon. This is an excellent story about making painful decisions and having faith that everything in the end will work out. Deciding what is important in life and is it worth it and stopping at nothing to make it work. Your words will stay with me a very long time and hands down one of my favorite reads of 2017!
