“When Lenora Baker and Nathan Roqué run into each other in their boarding school courtyard, they have no idea that they are about to begin a journey that will take them the rest of their lives to recover from. Both scarred from parents who were once in love but ended up destroying each other, they are sworn off the possibility that there can truly exist a love that will never end. But when with each other they find a passion so strong that it heals as powerfully as it burns, a love that will run out is no longer an option for them. Together, they discover just how far they are willing to go to preserve what they know they will only find once in their lifetime. This is the start of their journey, and here you will come to realize, that falling in love is only the first part of the story…”
I got an e-ARC of this book in exchange with an honest review. I’ll just be going to plot what I like and didn’t like with it. So here it goes:
What I did not like:
The pacing was slow and there were parts/scenes that bore me. Lenora’s character is one that I didn’t like in the story. One moment she’s standing firm on her decision and other times she’ll easily do what she wants without even thinking about it. Very inconsistent! I also didn’t like how I was taken aback with all the unexpected and quick kisses that happened between them and Nathan.
What I like:
I like how the author managed to squeezed in the different issues that teens face in our generation. She tackled it excellently. You would come across love life, family, school, friends and the bullying issues. It was relatable and it somehow shows that whatever you go through, there’s always a solution that will come with it. Another good thing is that though it had a slow pace, the author managed to put something that will make you think and continue reading. The ending will instantly make you miss Nora and Nathan’s world.
What I love:
I love how most of the scenes were set in a library!!!
