Okay, Colleen Hoover can do no wrong in my book. Her stories are an immersive experience that will make you forget your real-world exists!
So when I finish a CoHo book, a lot of times, I’m completely wrecked. She has twisted me up and wrung me out, and I need a minute before I tackle another one. This one though, it was a really good balance of emotion, character development, and plot. I found myself in love with the characters and invested in their stories, but I feel like I could pick another one up right away this time!
Auburn and Dallas find a connection after a chance meeting on his art studio’s front step. For Auburn it’s the first time they’ve met, but for Dallas, he’s holding a few secrets about when he first saw her…
Auburn is holding a few secrets of her own, and as the story progresses, more and more information is confessed between the two of them.
I really loved the way this story unfolded. We understand much more about Auburn’s past than we do about Dallas, but there’s so much to unravel still. Their relationship is tender and loving, and it’s so clear that Dallas wants to protect and love her. Watching their ups and downs was a wonderful experience, but my favorite part of this book was really focused on the hurdles in Auburn’s life that she had to overcome.
I really enjoyed this read, and I would highly recommend it for readers who enjoy contemporary romance!
