They say time can heal all wounds…

When Jess and Rupert parted ways, it was the end of a great love story that might have been. Now ten years later, the very different paths they have taken in life will bring them back together for a chance meeting.

But with so much left unsaid about the break up neither ever recovered from and with each keeping their own devastating secrets, will they finally be able to make the fractured pieces of their love for one another whole again?


My Thoughts

Purchase Link:

Have you ever had one of those loves that you just cannot shake off no matter how hard you try?  Jess and Rupert have!  Childhood friends, teenage sweethearts and adult lovers, Jess and Rupert say goodbye.  In the ten years they are apart, neither manages to get over the other and a fluke meeting in York ten years later brings them together again. But, they are no longer the same people and each one has their own secrets and heartaches to bring into the relationship.

Has too much time passed or can they finally complete their stories, together?

I just adore the different devices used to tell the story.

We have diary extracts from Jess, written as a young teen/adult and we get to relive her experiences through these writings.  Told with the words of someone mature but definitely a teenager it’s refreshing to look at things from this perspective.  Your first real love is always special and I think the feelings it brings are captured beautifully in these extracts.

In the present day we are told the story from two perspectives: Jess and Rupert.  Throughout both narratives the missing pieces from the past ten years are revealed slowly so although there are hints to the secrets they are both hiding, you don’t find out immediately.  Jess is such a darling and her narrative is written beautifully to show her vulnerability and fears whilst not making her seem weak in character.  I love the fact that we also get Rupert’s perspective although his narrative reveals less about him that Jess’s, it’s great to read that point of view which is often not found in romance novels.

From the very beginning you are rooting for Jess and Rupert, I mean – Rupert is like the perfect man.  By not revealing everything at once, Ms Burton keeps the pages turning until the very end.

Such a lovely book and highly recommended for fans of romance novels.
