Ost love Lucas again Who happens to be the owners brother And the manager But he does not emember her Ah that was interesting It was entertaining sometimes but sometimes it had too much details too much description and information we didn t need for the plot But still it was a eally cute and important story didn t need for the plot But still it was a eally cute and important story shows you that it doesn t matter how old you are you can always find your way Also what happened when Georgina was young is so important It was so heartbreaking and awful but still so so true Character Georgina was this plane crash of a human being that I find absolutely 100%
INTERESTING SHE WANTS TO BE AShe wants to be a but doesn t write at the moment Huh same girl same She stopped going to university after she had a panic attack and from then on worked in little bars or cafes as a waitress And nearly ever time she had an awful ending But she never gave up Her family was weird and sometimes eally mean to her but when they understood that they said things to her that destroyed her little by little they stopped She had an awful crazy manipulative boyfriend that betrayed her with his PA and then acted like they were in an open elationship And when she said it was over he started going to her new workplace or to her home Trying to force her back with him But she never elented and that was so good All in all I think she is still a little wild but then she is also extremely brave and I loved her so much Lucas was a mystery And he stayed that way Yes we got bit of information about his past and what he thought and felt for Georgina but all in all I think the author could ve given him of a personality But still he was such a sweetheart being espectful and honest Trying to be a good boss that protects his workers and so on The other characters were nice and I liked them but they didn t eally had a full personality like Georgina did But that s no surprise she was the main character duh Relationships Oh the heartbreak of Georginas and Lucas love story It was so devastating And then when they were older and met again I felt the angst and the uncertainty between them Then bit by bit they found their way to each other Only to be parted again Ugh The other elationship in this story was the one between Georgina
and her former boyfriend now ex obin heher former boyfriend now ex Robin He manipulative mean and an absolute asshole I hated him so much He only wanted her back so he could have power over her again And the way he tried it oh my god So awful and embarrassing I felt so much sympathy for Georgina And the way he used her own feelings and thoughts agains her was just evil All in all I hated him But he is not as fictional as you might think Writing style This was written in Georginas POV and the plot was mainly character driven It was eally eally descriptive and full of details and memories that slowed the whole pacing I enjoyed the book even though I sometimes skipped a few passage. So turned into an actual grown up with a thriving business and a dog along the way Crossing paths with him again throws Georgina’s ocky present into sharp elief and brings a secret from her past bubbling to the surface Only she knows what happened twelve years ago and why she’s allowed the memories to chase her ever since But maybe it’s not too late for the truth or a second chance with the one that got awa.
