This was the story I didn't know I needed. Well, I knew I wanted it, but the story itself, I didn't know how bad I needed it.
This family has been through more ringers than you can possible imagine. This book though, I didn't know how much they still needed to deal with.
These two characters both had gone through so much in their life and fate threw them together. Neither of them were prepared to find each other and when they did, it wasn't at all how you thought things were going to play out.
I loved every word of this. I loved reading about these characters and diving back in and watching them both heal. I wasn't the biggest fan of Julian in book one. I mean, he wasn't my favorite person, but this book? You really see him in this book. You see behind the facade that he puts up and you get to watch him become who he should have been for years.
Purely wonderful. Emotional and beautiful.
