    Poignant and Thoughtfully Written

    Favorite Quotes: I could blame my mother and her loud voice. She’s part Greek and part Puerto Rican. Unfortunately, her entire family lacks volume control. They scream ‘how was your day, sweetie?’ The same they yell, ‘pick up your room before I turn your hide red with my belt.’ This is right, my heart agrees and my soul demands it. Anyone can make your heart beat, not many will shake your soul, You know why I don’t weight much? … It’s because the only part left of me is my soul. It’s light, but able to carry all the love I accumulated throughout the years. That’s all I’m taking when I leave. My Review: I lost my breath several times while reading this book. The storyline and writing were poignant and so very thoughtful; I was quickly swept up by the narrative and transported into Anderson and Aspen’s world. The characters were compelling, endearing, and highly relatable. I was captivated by the dichotomy of Anderson and what and how he was dealing with the extreme shifts in his life. His mother was fading away before him and while he was grieving and coming to terms to a future without his last remaining relative, he was still willing to open his heart for the first time, to an extremely complicated and wounded woman, who was his mother’s neighbor. I adored these strong, intelligent, and appealing characters and was immediately engaged and mesmerized by their story. Written in my favorite form of dual POV, the story was well paced and artfully constructed. Ms. Burgoa has mad skills and strong word voodoo. Once I started reading, I was unwilling and unable to put my kindle down for longer than was absolutely necessary. Sigh. She is apparently as addicting as cheesecake, but thankfully, not as caloric. This was only my second experience reading Ms. Burgoa’s magical words, although it was more than enough to compel me into adding her entire backlist to my TBR.

    Heart warming

    This was a very heart warming read. It was very tearful at times, good and sad ones, and I loved the message behind the book. To live life to the happiest and not the way others want you to live your life. Also to open your heart to love because it's unexpected.
