So many feels...so many feels! And I loved every single one of them.
I don't know how to describe this story. It's a story of forgiveness. Of healing. Of love.
It's two people who are stuck in a spin cycle of sadness, grief, and emptiness. Two people yearning for a touch of connection, but fearing the need to reach out....to truly let someone in.
Zoe has been adrift ever since her father died while she was in college. She made mistakes. Made decisions that weren't thought through, or if they were, they were things done for the wrong reasons. She's built up a cold outer shell that hides the burning guilt swirling beneath.
Aiden is a man struggling with the grief of losing his brother. He's lost in a world where everything is the same, but nothing feels right. His family is forever changed. His life is aimless and he's just going through the motions trying to make it through one day at a time.
I'm not going to give anything else away because this story has so many layers to it, so many things that get peeled back as you're reading. Motivations. Insecurities. Vulnerabilities. Painful truths. Two people who are rediscovering themselves.
Reading this book is like awakening to spring after a harsh winter. Watching the leaves appear on trees. Flowers bloom. Clouds clear. The warming sun on your skin.
I can't even express how much this book grabs your heart and squeezes the crap out of it. It's such a beautiful story that tugs at every human emotion that makes us all relatable.
But there's also humor and a great balance of light hearted moments to brighten up the story. The book doesn't feel heavy or sad...it feels hopeful. Like you're witnessing the first steps of two people who don't even realize they've veered onto a new path.
As is true with the first book in this series, the friendship between Kit, Zoe, and Greer is just as central to this book as the romance. And for that, I stand up and applaud Kate Clayborn.
And let me just say...that epilogue?!?! Deep, happy sigh from the core of this romance reader's heart. I closed this book looking like a swallowed a coat hanger....just the biggest smile.
Kate Clayborn made me feel ALL THE FEELZ with this installment in her Chance of a Lifetime series. As I shared on Twitter, I was a puffy-eyed, tear-soaked snot monster after this book wrecked me in all the best possible ways. Zoe and Aiden each have emotional baggage that needs some serious unpacking and both are seeking purpose/direction in their adult lives. There are no ridiculous misunderstandings that cause issues with their burgeoning relationship. They are simply two people undergoing some pretty profound growth. They do not do so in a vacuum. Throughout the story they are surrounded by friends, family, and/or co-workers who impact their progress.
I loved everything about this book (which can be read as a standalone).
I didn't like this book as much as the first. Zoe can be abrasive and Aiden's deception was distasteful, especially since it involved people he'd known for a long time. It's still a good read, and I enjoyed the glimpses of Kit and Ben from the first book. I'm looking forward to the third book.
This leads her to Aiden, whose brother had recently died due to addiction recovery gone bad, and Zoe had been opposing lawyer working on the wrongful death settlement. The soul crushing guilt of this last case leads her to quit and find her way to Aiden’s family home to apologize, to get this off her chest. She finds only Aiden living there, and he’s disgusted to see her. She feebly apologizes and turns to leave but faints due to heat, anxiety and not eating anything prior to going there. He helps her up and they’re forced to talk some.
They end up on a short term adventure, a means to an end, but along the way peel back many layers of themselves and each other. They grow to respect each other, and they reluctantly start to really like being together. I absolutely loved the way massively grumpy Aiden eventually started to thaw some, he was such a downer to be around, but it was his grief just choking him at all times. This is a really beautiful story of two lost souls that find each other, just in the nick of time.p
