Sometimes even all the love in the world is not enough to save someone.
Willow Thorpe knows friction… The friction between her parents, Rosie and Rex. The friction inside herself as she tries to navigate two worlds since their divorce.
But life has not always been like this.
When Rosie and Rex first met, theirs was an attraction of opposites. Rosie lived life for those heightened moments when love reveals its true secrets. Rex lived life safely, by the rules. Common sense would say theirs was a union not meant to last, but it was genuine love.
Now Willow just wants to be with Rosie, to bask in her mother’s outsize glow and, she thinks, protection. Because Rosie is the only person who can make Willow feel totally alive and completely loved.
But as Willow and Rosie and Rex try harder and harder to stay connected as a family, Rosie’s manic tornado of love continues to sweep up everyone in sight, ultimately to heartbreaking results.
“Because Rex Thorpe finally knew what love was. And she tasted like Pixy Stix and wore polka-dot underwear.”
This warmed and broke my heart at the same time. From the start, I knew that these characters were going to break me and I wasn’t wrong.
A truly heartwarming read that left me breathless. No words can help me express my true feelings for this book. But I do say these words with tears in my eyes and goosebumps on my arms.
This magnificent tale of family, love, and heartbreak will explore all kinds of love even if it’s tragic. I loved every page of this and I wish everyone would give this a chance. Please judge this book by its beautiful cover!
I’m forever grateful to the publisher and Goodreads for having a giveaway for this book. They helped me discover a book that will be my favorite of the year and the year just started. I’m ready to ride this emotional roller coaster again and maybe live my life a little bit like Rosie. 💋
