UGH, THIS BOOK and all its emotions and feelings and just EVERYTHING. Sometimes I want a book that is going to really make me fell and then give me that HEA I have been chasing and if it ONE OF THOSE DAYS, I want a Kandi Steiner novel.
This was one of those days and this was REALLY one oh those books.
Cooper and Emery took em on such a ride, both figuratively and mentally. This book felt with some heavy stuff and did so in the most beautiful way. By the time I got to the end I was filled with that feeling you get when you are about to cry but are just so overcome with the feeling you can’t. I Loved every page. This book wasn’t insta-love and it definitely had a nice slow burn, but when things took a turn, they really took a turn.
If you love a good road trip and on-the-whim decisions, throw in a shirtless guy this just does it for you, grab this book. Also, grab it if you don’t, you’ll like it anyway.
What makes you happy?
That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.
And then, I got in his car.
It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.
We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.
Discovering his journal changed everything.
I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.
I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.
Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.
