This book was honestly a tear in my heart. And although, it wasn't as emotional for me as it could be seen in the synopsis, I still enjoyed reading about their story and what the had to go through to get to where they were meant to be.
I thought that the beginning was adorable and the writing style was very pleasing. *whispers* And so was the choice was names.
The story of these two
friends lovers was one that was great. A story you would like to hear on a bad day to make yourself feel happy again. I was not stunned to my seat or thrown into a river of heartache, but it was something that I liked reading.
Oliver was kidnapped by his father when he was little and returns back home to his family and to Emily who has been waiting for his return.
I loved the flashbacks that were fit into the story perfectly. I loved how subtle yet so important they all meant to the growth of Emmy and Oliver. I didn't have any problems with caring or connecting emotionally and mentally with the characters. I was comfortable with the pace of the overall books/romance.
I loved the characters and the way they were first introduced into the story. Each and every personality had it's own place to fit in and bring the whole story together just like puzzle pieces would.
Emmy & Oliver was fluid, lovely, and overall special in it's own way. I did feel at times that there could have been "more" to the story (see even I don't even know what I'm saying right now), a spark that for me, was just not there. BUT I am giving this book all the love it deserves.
tell me: have you read this book? what did you think about it?
