    Soul mates finding their way...

    I started this book without realizing that it was the second in a series. It didn't hurt me, but I'm still going to read the first one and if I had known i definitely would have read it first. I could tell I was missing out on important foundations of relationships that had been established previously. The book starts with Lauren having professed her love to her friend Matthew, but he hadn't reciprocated the way she had hoped he would. Her boyfriend of 10 years, Eric, had finally proposed to her offering her everything she had always wanted but she realized she didn't want it anymore. She figures out that she's in love with Matthew and doesn't want to marry Eric. Matthew rejected her, Eric is upset and hurt since she turned him down, so she's all alone and trying to figure out what to do with her life. This is where the story begins. She spends five months picking up the pieces and getting on with daily living on the outside, but her feelings for Matthew don't diminish and the pain is always there. She's in a deep depression but doesn't try to contact Matthew because she thinks it will break her even more to be rejected by him yet again. I don't want to give this story away, but I will say that I was so frustrated with the both of them! Even though we weren't getting Matthew's POV I was still yelling at him in my head. They just needed to talk to one another! Instead of just assuming they knew exactly what the other was thinking and feeling they should have fought harder for what they wanted. They wasted too much time that could have been spent being happy and together by being alone and in despair. They eventually reconnect but I won't spoil how that occurs for you. During a conversation about their time apart Matthew said, "The heart is an amazing thing...It never lies, though we may not choose to listen. It continues to beat even when it's broken, even when you wish it wouldn't. It's almost as if it's determined to pull you through the darkest hours, as if it knows that better days are ahead." That line perfectly summarizes in the most profound way the desolation they both lived through. They end with a definite HEA and seeing how perfect they are together makes all the heartbreak worth it. If events hadn't occurred exactly in the way that they did then maybe they wouldn't have been given this second chance at being with 'the One'. Matthew tells Lauren she's always been his One when he says, "From the moment that I laid eyes on you, I knew you were the one. But for the longest time, you weren't mine to have. ...And you slipped through my fingers and that loss nearly killed me." Swoon!! Every time Matthew says something you just can't help but fall for him a little bit more. He's my new book boyfriend, for sure....and I'm hoping he appears in later books of the series. I can't wait to read them all.
