Hello loves! Here we are on another Sunday which means it is time to get another standalone recommendation from me! Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Megan @ bookslayerReads. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, I know it has been a busy one for me! I am not ready for it to be Monday tomorrow at all, or ever really if I’m honest. I HATE Mondays.
This week my recommendation is…
Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.
I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.
But now he’s back.
I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.
Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.
One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.
*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*
Okay, now I absolutely adores this book. It was emotional and raw. However, I am aware that it has mixed reviews in the world of books. I truly think this will go down as one of my favorite books of this year though. I really just love ever Staci Hart book I have read so far, and I can’t wait to explore some of her other works.
Have you guys read this one yet? What did you think?
Until Next Time…
