Synopsis:

Two Lives Torn by tragedy. 

Eight-year-old Becca and twelve-year-old Hunter cling to each other and life after surviving a plane crash which stole their families. 

Two Souls Seeking Love. 

Each year, from the time she was old enough to travel on her own, Becca met up with Hunter on the island that altered their lives forever. 

Until he stopped showing. 

Her constant. Her link to the past. Gone in the blink of an eye. 

Two Lives Bound by Secret. 

Suffering more heartbreak, Hunter returns to the one place he’s always sought comfort, the island where he and Becca met. It was the place that stole from him, and in the same instance gave to him. He hasn't been back or spoken to Becca in four years. 

Though he’s sure she must hate him for disappearing, Hunter discovers the girl gone, now a woman in her place. Hunter is determined to prove to Becca he isn’t the same twelve-year-old boy of yesteryear. 

But someone isn't happy about their reunion... 

Strange things begin happening. Letters start showing up in their hotel rooms and at home with cryptic messages. 

Two Broken Hearts Heal as One. 

With the mystery unsolved, Hunter convinces Becca to spend the remainder of the summer back home with him, both for safety and to give them a chance to discover the adults they’ve now become. 

Will love get a chance to blossom, or will the past come back and tear the masterpiece of their love apart once and for all?

Review:

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Hmm...I don't really know what to write about this book. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. It was alright. I just don't think it was the book for me,. It was a bit too sentimental for me. It seemed like a lot of romance, but sappy romance, and not enough suspense for me. It also had a lot of plot points and might have been trying to be too much. It was still a good read and I would read the next book to see what happens.

Hunter and Becca were united in a tragedy that took their families years ago. They used to meet up every year close to where the accident happened, but Hunter has not showed for the past 4 years. Becca decides to go one last time and then that will be it. She was raised by her grandparents who always treated her like she couldn't do anything and was helpless. They still do, and they want her to marry a much older man who does the same thing. She doesn't want to, but she seems like she is about to cave and just let them do whatever. She likes to paint, but her grandparents and Vince, the guy they are trying to get her to marry, just think it is some silly hobby. Hunter though thinks she is amazing. He knows she can do whatever she wants and hates that her grandparents treat her as though she can't. Yes she has had some mental and physical injuries in the accident, but she has come a long way since then. She can really do anything she wants.

Luckily Hunter shows up this year. They instantly fall back into the easy friendship they had. When odd things start happening it pushes them closer and they become intimate. They have both always likes the other, and something almost happened that last year, but then Hunter stopped showing up. He had a good reason to stop showing up, but not to cut Becca out of his life entirely. I got it though. Hunter doesn't really share anything with anyone. Through the book he learns that he needs to share with Becca if he has any chance of making this last. There is a bit of suspense in it, and what happened at the end was a bit confusing (I was a bit confused by it all much like the characters in the story were). There is also a child and crazy ex to deal with as well. The ex story was...well it was too easily resolved, at least for now. It was just like okay everything will be fine now. I don't know it was alright.

The story was mostly just Hunter and Becca being a couple and working out how to be together and be there for each other. Like I said above it was a bit too sentimental for me. A bit too sappy. If you like a more romantic story this would be a good one for you. Still I am curious what will happen and who the person really is who was leaving them the notes and stuff. What does she want? Who is she? What really happened?

Rating: 3/5
