I got this book in exchange of an honest review from the author and I couldn't put it down!
I fell in love with all of the characters like I haven't done in a while.
Since before Christmas I've found myself in a bit of a book drought, I couldn't get myself to start a new book, nothing was inspiring enough, but when I grabbed this one after new years eve I couldn't stop until I was done, it was just perfect.
The story we get to read is not about the complete and constant happiness of the characters, because like in real life, bad things happen and the important thing is how we are able to move forward from this occurrences.
Life is about finding a way to overcome the pain, the loneliness and facing our deepest fears, and only then we are able to be our true selves, to accomplish real happiness.
The way in which the author captures the pain and suffering of each of these different characters is amazing. She puts us in their shoes, and is able to show us how deep some things can affect people and that we should never judge anyone who is in pain, based on what they are going through, because we are all different and are affected in completely distinct ways.
The two main stories in the book are about four people who are going through hell, and learning to live again. They find strength within each other and we can all hope that if some day we find ourselves in their shoes, we can find someone as them to hold on to and lean on.
Like life itself, there are bad moments for all of the characters in this new journey, but it's all about the way in which they fix it, they make mistakes but are now strong enough to fight through and get back on top.
A beautiful story, that is a must read in my book !
And like always, I got my favourites, Daisy and Carter were it for me! The way in which she experiences everything for the first time is just to sweet and perfect, I connected to her the most.
About the Author:
A BLONDE AT HEART Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
