    Emotionally captivating

    Apologies... if you hate spoilers you might not want to read this. I don't know if I can help myself in not spoiling it because I'm still emotional about the book. Now that I got that out of the way... here I go... First of all, I want to give the author my applause. I don't think I've ever loved a retelling of a story the way I did with GMYT. I already know what happened base on Erik. I know what's waiting for me at the end. Still, felt like I was 'knowing' the story for the first time. It didn't feel like I was reading a retelling of a story in a different point of view. I guess it's the way it was told. Like Erik, I felt I was in a journey with Daisy. You know, I feel like I haven't been this emotional about a book in ages. I actually cried. In fact, I cried a lot. When I read Erik, I told myself I would have probably reacted the way he did with with what Daisy did to him. Reading Daisy, I was hoping Erik reacted differently. Hearing everything from her made the pain deeper. And I almost hated Erik for being so cold, distant and hard on Daisy. I've read about why he did it but still, reading Daisy, I wished he didn't. You know those phone calls? I know from Erik that he never bothered to answer. But as I read Daisy relive those phone calls she made, I could hear the voice inside my head saying, "come on, pick up the stupid phone". And it crushed me the way it crushed Daisy every time he didn't. As Daisy went to therapy I felt like I was in the journey of healing along with her. It almost felt like I was among those people who was part of the Lancaster shootout and I needed to heal too. Every time the therapist asked her a question, I would mull it over my head and try to answer it too. I was really emotionally invested into the story. And for Suanne to pull that off, hands down. I've read tons of books but very few have been able to do that to me. In fact, my tears are starting to flow again just trying to remember what I just finished reading and writing this review. Then came John. You know, I hate his character when I first read him in Erik's. But in this book I seriously loved him. I was like, come on Daisy let's just forget Erik. John is here. He's better. And he will treat you better. Yet I also felt the barrier Daisy felt when she couldn't talk about Erik with him. Yet I hoped. Even if I know already it's not happening. The letter to Lucky containing all of Daisy's feelings, that was were I first shed a tear. There were more people that came along the way but seeing Lucky and Will in the scenes were a relief. Like someone is telling me, it's okay. You're not alone. You have friends. I told in my review of "The Man I Love" that reading Erik's story made opened feelings I thought I have buried a long time ago. Reading Daisy made me understand why did they happened. Why I buried those memories and why it opened. With Daisy, I learned an important lesson. Some things are meant to be forgiven. I still don't agree with it but this time I do understand it well. And I can say that I also healed along with her. I cried again when I got to the happy ending part. But this time around it was because I was happy as well. I don't think I've ever been this happy for book people reaching their happy endings. And before I totally forgot the real purpose of reviews, it didn't escape me that the questions I had from book one got answered. And it was given an answer true. If you haven't read this or book one, please do. It's an emotionally captivating novel. A very well-crafted intelligent romance. It was an amazing journey. Not easy but still an amazing one. Kudos to Suanne Laqueur for writing this novel. here's a few favorite quote that I can't resist sharing: "I changed one word and changed my life. But is a restriction. But is either-or. And means you can do both things at the same time. I can give back the physical things that belongs to you and keep the things I feel about you." "I'm sorry, I will always be sorry. I love you, I will always love you. And I'm forgiving myself."
