Jess is a sweet shy girl. But Jess is going through a tough time.  She is diagnosed with depression and instead of a supportive boyfriend, he is a jerk and walks out and never comes back.  So on top of dealing with her depression, she is also dealing with a broken heart.   With the love of her two best friends Jay and Katie, she will heal.  But will she heal completely.

Luka is an amazing cellist.  He has moved to Bristol to start over.  His heart is broken and he needs to heal and learn to trust again. Sometimes he feels like his loneliness will swallow him whole.  So he pours his heart and soul into his music.

Jess is on the edge of her depression.  But one day the music coming out of the apartment next door knocks her for a loop.  That is how Luka finds her.  In the hall on the floor crying.  What has this beautiful girl in tears?  He feels protective over her.  Can they both heal their broken hearts?

This book was amazing.  “Bravo! Bravo!”   If I could give it more than a 5 star rating I would, because it deserves it.  This book is so emotionally charged.  There were so many up and down moments that you will feel it deep in your bones.  Love, sorrow, betrayal, self-doubt, happiness…..just……everything.  Claire’s writing style is amazing.  It feels as if she poured her heart and soul into this novel, into her wonderful characters.  Claire really does know how to write an emotional book, that will draw you in and have you invested from the very first chapter.

Overall this book was outstanding.  Claire is a very talented author who knows how to blend emotions together and create a wonderful master piece in her story.  Her characters are not only lovable, but easy to relate to.  This creates a very life-like story.  The story flowed at an easy to read steady pace, that contained flash backs to help build the characters up and help the readers to get to know them better.  I was so blown away by her story.  I can’t wait till the next book comes out.  I bet it will be just as good as this one.

I was only existing.Then I met Larkin, my gorgeous blonde neighbor. She’s got curves in the right places, and toffee-colored eyes that beg me to do unspeakable things to her.I don’t want to want her. I don’t want to look at her, and I definitely don’t want to long for her.
I want to avoid her.Except… I can’t. Everywhere I go, everything I do, I am brought back to Larkin.And when we finally cave, falling into bed together… It’s fucking explosive and passionate and deep. Soon enough, it’s as essential as breathing.

I’m starting to fall in love with Larkin… but it was never supposed to turn into this.

If I want a future with Larkin, I have to figure out how to let go of the past.
And nothing has ever felt so good… and hurt so bad.

My Review


Wow!  This book was very intense.  An emotional roller coaster, that will have you on the edge wondering if you should pull your hair out and scream or cry.

In this story Larkin is a bleeding heart, who takes in the unwanted and disabled type animals.  She is caring and sweet and tries to fix them.  She has moved back to Pacific Pines to fix up her mother’s house to sell, so she can move to New York.  That is until a dark-haired intense and sexy as sin stranger walks into her life, with the most adorable two-year old.

Charlie is damaged.  He lost his wife when his daughter was only 3 months old.  Not only does that leave him broken-hearted, but he has served in the military and the CIA, which has left him with a scarred soul.  His only reason for living is his two-year old daughter Sarah.  Sarah who looks more and more like her mother everyday.

Larkin is determined to help Charlie and Sarah.  She sees the darkness he tries to hide.  But will she be enough to help him see the light at the end of the tunnel?  The one he so desperately wants to find.

This book has amazing characters that are well-developed with depth to their souls.   I really enjoyed reading about the journey of Charlie and Larkin.  Larkin is a wonderful and caring person.  Charlie is brooding, dark and sexy.  A cute little Sarah is a doll.

This book was an edge of your seat good read.  A real page turner.  This book flows so smoothly and is life like in detail.  It tells a story of healing the soul.  Not only that but of reconnecting with family and change.  A beautiful love story that will reach in and grab your heartstrings and pull.  I highly recommend this book.
