Just brought to my attention and now HIGHLY recommended by Joanna, and yep!! Another series that looks right up our angsty, tissue-riddled, emotional alley! And book #1 is free right now 🙂 This just may be my next read after I’m done the one I’m reading now… (updated: 02/20/2013: OMG YES!! Loved this series!)
Joanna: Okay, mentioned this one earlier, but now I’m into the second book of the series and it’s tearing me apart. Good tearing me apart, in that angsty can’t-hardly-stand-to-read-it-but-can’t-stop way. I about died at the end of the first book, and then about died at the beginning of the second. Damn… The first book is free, and you might really like it if you’re into emotional ups and downs… Yeah… Remember, I warned you. This one will RIP OUT YOUR HEART.
Abby: I totally loved this series. Never cried so hard while reading but it was worth it n the end. A must read for everyone!!!
Joanna: Read books 1 & 2 and loved them! I’m going to start 3 soon but I needed a little break 🙂
Jennifer: One of my favorite series of the year so far and maybe ever, it drew so much emotion out of me, like your review said peace and pain! So glad you read and enjoyed it!
About book #1
This is the beginning of an atypical romance.
When artist Nate Wilson falls in love, he falls hard. The problem is, he’s only been in love once, and the girl of his affections is his best friend, Emi Hennigan. In high school, the two bonded over painful breakups, and swore off a relationship to save their friendship. Thirteen years later, Nate has had more than his share of emotionally-unfulfilling, sexual relationships with beautiful women to distract himself from his true romantic feelings.
When a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity takes Nate away from his friend and his comfortable lifestyle, he is forced to reflect on the distinct void that Emi’s absence leaves in his life. To Nate’s surprise, Emi has a similar experience; but as the friends embark upon their journey toward happiness together, destiny reveals other plans for Emi.
