really liked it
bookshelves: emotional

The past pulls. The future shoves. The present just begs for a time-out.

Cursive was one of those books I stumbled upon randomly, a friend of mine had read it and loved it so I thought I would give it a go. I was happy I did! I really enjoyed this one. It was a beautiful story, it was emotional, I laughed, I cried, and there was a pretty big twist that I didn’t see coming( I love when books can surprise me like that!) A compelling read I didn’t want to put down!

Aislynn has spent the last year moving from city to city working on her novel. Writing has always been something she wanted to pursue, but it took something big happening in her life for her to go after it. Something traumatic happened to Aislynn about a year ago, but you only know the half of it. Aislynn is awesome. She has been through a lot, but she is fun and feisty. I really enjoyed her character. Thankfully, Aislynn has her best friend Ellie to lean on. She is currently staying with Ellie in SanDiego. One morning, she walks into her kitchen, barley dressed, and sees a very good looking man. A man who happens to be one of Ellie’s clients. Mr. Jace Quinn.

Jace... I just loved Jace. Jace see’s Aislynn and he just knows she is different, even if he doesn’t want to admit it.
Thats it. She’s breathtaking and she doesn’t even know it. Such a dangerous combination.

Jace has had things happen in his life that make him very hesitant to get involved with anyone. When Aislynn’s friend Ellie, and Jace’s friend Evan become involved, Jace and Aislynn are kind of forced together on these ‘non-dates’. The more they get to know one another, the more they like each other. They decide to try for real. It is scary for the both of them. They both have secrets. After finding out about Jace’s past, everything makes sense. Aislynn wants to be there for him. He knows some things about Aislynn, but not everything. She isn’t sure if she can ever tell him the whole truth. But they make the decision to be together.

Aislynn and Jace go through quite the journey together. It was wonderful to see Aislynn growing and learning about herself. Moving on, letting go, and healing.

Jace and Aislynn were perfect together. I loved how they were both able to learn to love again, trust again, heal and let go of the past. A truly beautiful story. A great debut novel!!!
