This compilation was amazing! There were some parts that I was up reading, late in the night, and I freaked out; causing my younger brother to snap out of a deep sleep.

Good but a hard one to review

In so many ways this was a five star read but there were things despite the wonderful concept of people connecting because of circumstances in their lives (not just the romance part but life) that made reviewing difficult. Firstly I need to say it was a great story with some likeable characters but, for me there was a but.

Some contrived situations like a twenty year old and a billionaire I can suspend my disbelief for as they are a popular trope, and most authors are

Defies conventions

There are words that have become a part of the modern day lexicon that were once considered as abstractions . They have become nouns, verbs , or adjectives and far removed from it's original intent .

Odd but enjoyable

I found the format of this odd. It starts in the past with a wee girl, then jumps to teen male, then off to another teen but female. We have 3 very separate and different tales running and no obvious meeting point.
I kinda lost it after the helicopter crash, but stuck with it.
I was confused when we met the kidnapped girl as it turned out this is a solitary book I've read before...... Its been woven into this book (or lifted from it and published as a stand alone tale).

Not bad, bu

Great book(s)

Really enjoyed the book(s). Well written with wonderful character development. I will definitely be reading more of this author's work in the future. Glad Amazon has a "follow author" feature to keep abreast of upcoming releases.

I’m in my thirties and living in New Zealand. A little over a year ago I lost somebody very close to me. I was lucky in a way, I was given enough time to make a promise. My promise was that I would never forget our young and innocent love, and it’s a promise I intend to keep.

My writing is a way to help me keep that promise. I’ve always enjoyed writing but was forced into being ‘prudent’ and giving
