Standalone – emotional second chance at love
Reviewed by Gitte & Jenny
‘It was my pain. I’d earned it. I guarded it closely.’
What an incredibly beautiful yet pain filled story this was. We were utterly swept away on a journey of love, healing, acceptance and forgiveness. Set in beautiful surroundings- two people, who on paper have nothing in common, meet and fall from a great resistant height into the heart of the other. It was so full of emotion as well as passion and we completely connected with both Margot and Jack. Sometimes we are given a second chance at love. A love that never weakens the importance of another but is no less pure, intense nor real.
‘What if I’d come here for a reason? What if he was the something missing from my life. What if I wasn’t supposed to give up on him? What if he needed me to help him heal? What if I never met anyone who made me feel the way he did? What if we were supposed to be together?’
We fell in love with both Margot and Jack. In many respects Margot was the inner strength to Jack’s vulnerability. She knew what she wanted and she fully embraced it, caring not what her family would think or say. She was cheeky, funny and so very sweet. Yet she was also a beautiful woman who stood up for what she wanted, believed and cared about. We felt her heart and soul.
“I know what I had. And it doesn’t happen twice.”
Where Margot welcomed change; Jack is reluctant, angry and stubbornly refused what was in front of him as well as in his heart. Jack’s got a past that emotionally dictates his present which was absolutely heart-breaking. He shied away from anything new and dismissed possibilities; denying life due to guilt. Change and love go hand in hand with hope and new beginnings, and we loved every minute of it.
‘He was kissing me like I’d never been kissed before. Like he was going to war. Like he didn’t care about breathing. Like something in him needed something in me so desperately, he had to find it or die trying.’
