✯✯✯✯✯ ++++ heartbreakingly beautiful stars!
“Where have you been my whole life?”
“Right here, waiting for you to turn up again.”
You know one of those stories that grips you from page one and never lets’ go until you’ve turned the last page? Well Missed Connection is that kind of story. It was everything and more – it was absolutely flawless – it was perfection. It had everything that gets our book hearts completely invested – falling in love whilst devouring every single beautiful word and sentence written by K. Larsen and Mara White.
“What is it about you, Ty? What happened to us that night?”
‘This is what second chances feel like, magical and decadent, almost like you’ve beat the powers that be at their own game.’
When we began reading we were immediately reminded of a Craigslist notice which was shared far and wide on Facebook and Twitter. At the time it brought tears to our eyes and we both said how we’d love a book written about this moment in time. Well, who knew – it happened?!
‘His words are more than poetic. They were meant for me. Ty is looking for me.’
We certainly didn’t until we opened up this book. It was unquestionably inspiring, romantic, emotional, passionate and quite heart-breaking too. It was a story of soulmates – fate, hope and second chance love.
‘The ghost of this woman kept alive only by a matchbook, a tattoo and now, a post, just hanging out somewhere online.’
We loved that Titan and Jesenia were mature characters who’d truly lived; had a past and a present which resembled normality in life with much realism. Whilst living their own lives and bringing up their respective children; Angie and Luke, each knew that twenty years ago their heart and soul connected with a strangers – a connection that lasted one night in a diner after which neither met again…until they did.
‘It touches me deeply to know that a moment that was so pivotal in my life – was important to someone else – that it also lives on through you.’
Jesenia is in a loveless marriage; a politician’s wife who has an incredible bond with her daughter. Whilst she suffers with her own personal demons she still remembers that night when she gave a piece of her heart to a chance encounter. Jesenia stole our hearts – completely.
“So I’ve thought a lot on this whole thing and here’s what I’ve come up with – some relationships are anchored by their faith in God, when everything falls apart, both parties come back to their faith and it holds them together. Some relationships are anchored by their deep appreciation and respect for their partner. But you and I we have something different, we’re anchored by a moment in time. A chance encounter. We’re anchored by hope.”
Ty, the most eligible bachelor in contracting is raising his teenage son as a single Dad whilst reminiscing about the night his soul connected with another. We felt his longing and frustrations at what was such a highly emotionally charged moment which changed his path in life. We fell in utter love with Ty – the man he is – well he is quite simply amazing in so many respects as well as inspiring.
“You are everything I’d always dreamed you’d be and so much more.”
We urge you to pick up Ty and Jes’ story – it’s quite the journey and you will feel every emotion that is possible as you follow their journey both apart and together. Learning with them as well as exploring the mystery and romanticism of a one chance encounter that shaped lives and held such a stronghold on two souls forever.
“I hope you know, that if I could, I would give you the stars. But, instead all I can give you is everything I have in my heart.”
