Oh my goodness what a gorgeous story!
Jennifer Hartmann, you sure know how to pull at my heartstrings!
Once again I was taken on an emotional roller coaster ride with this intense and exciting book.
My review follows the book blurb.
Book 📖 blurb 🌈 🐘
Want to know what happens to a man who barely claws his way out of a tragedy, only to fall right into the arms of the one girl in the world he can never have?
Another tragedy, that’s what.
When I was six years old, my father made a choice that altered the course of my entire life.
Because of what he did, the only girl I ever loved became the only girl I couldn’t have.
In a lot of ways, I did have her…
I had her first steps, her first words, her first smile. I had her milestones, her heartbreaks, her dreams. I had her heart so woven in with mine, I didn’t know where she ended, and I began.
Only, as the years pressed on, lines became blurred—and the blurrier the line, the easier it is to cross.
They say tragedy comes in threes.
For me, that was true.
The first one changed me, the second one broke me, and the third one healed me.
But at the center of all that tragedy… there is a love story.
And at the center of that love story,
There is June.

My 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 review
Jennifer’s books always hit me straight into my heart, and this one was no exception! From the first few pages I was gripped by this emotional story. I utterly bonded with all the main characters, but Brant completely stole my heart.
Such a fascinating story that kept me avidly reading.
I won’t go into any details, I don’t want to spoil the twists for anyone, just to say that it was heartbreaking and uplifting all in one beautifully written book.
