Love and the right timing were two things I didn’t believe in.
Love is about walking to the edge of the cliff and taking the leap together.
Timing was never on our side.
My first mistake was hooking up with my best friend.
My second came years later, when we met again, and I fell for her.
My third was letting her go, because I had to. Because a love like this wasn’t built to withstand the winds coming in our direction.
Love and timing.
I didn’t believe in either.
Then there was you . . .
Oh the angst!
I swear, I feel like I haven’t read a book in a while that has this amount of angst.
Then There Was You is my first Claire Contreras book and I loved it! I am a romantic at heart and I am a sucker for any angsty romance (within reason 😉), this book delivered it all. It’s the type of slow burn romance that keeps you reaching for more even though it’s well past midnight and you should be sleeping.
The characters had such strong qualities to them.
To be honest, you know what? This was such an ‘odd’ book to read. I swear i didn’t get a moment of peace! Talk about Angst! Even when they were together, i felt the clock ticking , counting down until something bad happens. I couldn’t bask in the glory that was the chemistry between rowan and Tessa… Sure i thoroughly enjoyed each and every moment of them together and as individuals but like i said… Tick tock! The angst is real in this one.. My young heart wasn’t strong enough to withstand the torment and joy, the emotional uphill, the roller-coaster of this beautiful book.
I loved this book!
PS: This book ends on a cliff hanger. Tessa and Rowen will get you so frustrated that you’ll get a whiplash with their back and forth, they will make you feel their pain, their hopelessness but most of all they will make you fall in love with them.
