Goodreads Summary:

How long would you wait for love?
How hard would you fight for it?

Samantha Johnson never thought she would meet her soul mate at the age of five. Yet she did. She is irrevocably in love with the man that has always been there for her. He is her strength, and she is certain he’ll be in her life forever. But she doesn’t realize that life doesn’t go the way we plan, and he is about to rip her heart to pieces.

Jonathan Smith doesn’t believe in love. His parents’ failed marriage is just another testament of the deception people willingly put themselves through. A mistake he will never allow himself to make. No exceptions. He only needs one thing, Sam. She has been his best friend since they were kids. She knows him better than anyone, and he owes her everything.

Until one fated night, and five unforgettable words, changed their lives forever. Now, thousands of miles apart, they will be forced to build a new life. But sometimes the worst of heartbreaks are meant to be.

Can they find their way back to each other, or does true love have an expiration date?

REVIEW:
Stars: 4.5/5 Stars
** spoiler alert ** So I love this book. I couldn’t put it down. I feel heartbroken by that cliff hanger ending too.

Writing: 5/5
Love Interest 1: 1/5
Love Interest 2: 4/5
That 5 Year later part is gonna haunt me..

Feels on the book:
Samantha: I LOVE HER. It was insta love for me. I felt like I could relate to the character and that is such a big deal for me. I love her story with Jonathan(In the beginning if I’m being honest, more on that later) and Christopher . Just wow. Amazing.

Jonathan: Well I hate to say it but ugh. Just No. I had no love for him at any part of the story except for when he was little. I don’t know if it was just me but I didnt like him. He seemed like what my gen would call a “Fuck boy” I feel bad for hating him but I just didnt like him. (Might be personal reasons but he reminded me of my ex and I spent the WHOLE book wanting to punch him in the face)

Jonathan & Samantha: Ill admit it was super cute that they grew up together and they had a deep connection, but I just didn’t feel like they belonged together (Horrible right?) In my mind I’m just stuck in the the asshole is doing great, go figure. jack off. Samantha deserves better… which leads me to…

Samantha & Christopher: WOW. Okay. I loved them together. I felt like they fixed each other. I didnt feel it in a rebound way I honestly wanted them to be together. I still do. They fit together, they have the same interests and he is amazing. He is the guy Samantha deserves.

Let me say again I love this book. It is going to stay with me, but I can’t help but feel robbed. Jonathan just reminds me way too much of the Guy that you should stay away from when Christopher is much rather the guy you should be with. Maybe its just me?

Goodreads Summary:

Kate Taylor had the perfect life. That is until an accident took everything she had away. For two years she has been living moment to moment and day to day. She’s lost and can’t seem to find her way back. Finally, in a last ditch effort, she decides to leave town in search of a fresh start. In walks Ryan Grant. The perfect man with dark hair and sexy green eyes. Doesn’t hurt that they have smoldering chemistry either. Too bad Kate’s heart and mind are trapped in the past.

Ryan Grant is stuck in limbo, floating through life with work as his only focus. Probably because he’s been betrayed a time or two by the people he thought he could trust. Needing a change, he plans on moving his company west to Seattle. There is just one big problem. He doesn’t fly. So when a girl from his past offers to drive him across the country, how could he say no? Katie is his dream girl after all. Always has been.

Stars: 5/5 Stars

 

Thanks for ripping my heart out. *cries for hours*
So I’ll be honest. I love this book. I loved Katie & Ryan. I love the story line. I love the ending. (And pretty much everything in between, naturally I loved it.)  J. Saman became an auto buy for me now. Eck!
My heart was in this book the whole time I was reading it. Which is a big deal simply because recently I have been going through a huge slump and this book put me in a book hangover. (Thanks, now I’m messed up because I just want to reread this for a couple months)

Katie was such an amazing character. I cried for her when Maggie & Eric were at the hospital in the beginning of the book. It broke my heart, I could never imagine having to go through that. She was so amazing and incredibly strong. Right then in the intro I knew I was in for it.  I cried when she cried at the memories of them. My heart was breaking with hers every time she remembered them.  I never get so attached to characters this quick. but boy did I.

Ryan was gah. I just. I want to hug that boy. (Also other things *wink wink*) I really loved how we find out more about his job as we go rather then knowing straight from the start, defiently makes me interested in the character more. It builds more mystery around him which just makes him more of a heart throb in my personal opinion. Combine that with the fact that he is obviously smart AND Good looking?  Is there a sign up sheet? I want to be on it!
Pick up this book if you get the chance everyone! Your heart will break in all the right ways and be sewn back together. J. Saman did an amazing job! I cannot wait to read the second book.
