Hard Love by Joanne Schwehm
Rosa's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones
The difference between need and want...
The author took my on a journey from past to present, from lust to love, and from want to need.
I fell hard for these amazing characters. Their witty banter and crazy friends drew me in. Their chemistry and passion had me convinced. Their fear of the future had me worried they would throw it all away, unwilling to take the risk. I was mentally cheering them on, encouraging them to give in to their feelings. You know, the ones that they refused to admit they had? Even I could see it, through the pages of my Kindle.
I was invested, unable to walk away, even to sleep. I kept reading and reading, unable to stop until I turned the last page. I stayed up all night to get my answers. I needed to know that even though love is hard, it's worth the pain. I didn't believe it was too good to be true, that it was over. No. No. No! I refused to accept that, so my stubborn ass kept reading and reading, fingers crossed, nails chewed, breath held, heart broken.
Love lost, lessons learned, hard choices, hard love. Sometimes it hurts so good. You wouldn't want to go through it again, but you wouldn't trade the good times to avoid the pain, even if you knew it was coming. Will it all be worth it? Or will it just be a beautiful love story that ended too soon? There's only one way to find out, read it. You won't regret it. I'm looking forward to what the author has for us next. The line forms here...
