An extraordinary gentleman <3
on February 18, 2018
I honestly don't know how to start this review, not because I didn't like the book, but because I loved it so, so much.
Have you ever had that feeling that someone is squeezing your heart to the point that you feel it could burst? That's just what mine felt like while reading this beautiful story. Penelope took me to new hights with this story. Three friends who were inseparable throughout their teenage years, two boys attracted to the same girl who made a pack to never let their feelings show, until one of them breaks that pack and friendships change and life as they knew it would never be the same. But life happens and when Channing, the boy that was left behind, comes back into a heartbroken Amber's life new feelings develop and once again destiny will show them that even the best laid plans can change in a heartbeat.
The friendship between Channing and Amber was so pure despite the sexual desire they had for each other, the respect that they showed not only between them but to Rory was admirable. It also filled my heart with joy that the author included two characters as beautiful as Milo and Christine, I cried reading some of their parts, not because they saddened me but because she treated them with so much respect and love, just the way it should be.
There are so many emotions embossed in this story, one moment you could be laughing and the next crying. This is a love story, an incredibly well crafted love story with ups and downs and a few surprises along the way, with characters you want to get to know, you want to be friends with, with situations that could happen to any of us. It is a story with a bit of humor, a bit of sadness, a lot of joy and so much heart. My heart was happy by the end of the book, my soul was flying high.
This might be Penelope's best book yet.
