Posted on
Synopsis 3
Life is all about the jigsaw, right? Finding the different puzzle pieces to complete your very own picture. A career you love, a house to make a home, a lover to complete you, and keep you warm at night.
Danielle Renton has a life, and she loves it. A recent law school graduate, she’d been floored when her boyfriend, Nate Lewis, enlisted during their sophomore year of college. At the time, she’d been concerned with what that meant for them as a couple, but in the years that followed, they’d learned to adapt to the logistics of an army relationship.

But when life throws her a curveball, how will she cope? Can she pick up the pieces and make her picture beautiful again? Or does she realize that, sometimes, the pieces can be too broken to fit back together…

This book is the epitome of the amazing love story that has tragedy.  You will definitely need Kleenex when you read this book.  The book is told from Dani’s point of view.  The author does a great job of showing us the history of the relationship between Dani and Nate from when they met in high school, what happens throughout college, what choices are made that will affect their future forever.

The characters in this book are so very lovable.  The friends and family that Dani and Nate have are amazing and vital within their lives.  Even though this story begins with the love of two high school sweethearts, it also address what happens after true love is taken away too early.  Whether it is in a book or in real life, the lives of military families have to be extremely hard at times.  The author did an amazing job at capturing the feelings of what it means to move on after a tragedy in life.  Survivor guilt and the difficult feelings of finding love again are conveyed very accurately.

Thank you Rebecca for an amazingly written story of how life doesn’t always go as planned and to truly live we must find a way to love and find happiness.  I loved this book, but it is very emotional, so as I said before make sure you have your Kleenex.

Excerpt
My heart beats for you and you alone. I know there will be hard times, times when you’re away and I wonder how I’m going to do it, but I promise to always let my love for you help me through those times—knowing that while I’m here missing you, you’re somewhere missing me.
The kiss seemed to last forever, but it came to a point where I had to end it for fear of never wanting to leave. The tears in her eyes as I stood up to walk to the door broke something inside of me, something that wouldn’t be fixed until she was back in my arms again.
His tongue parted my lips and slid into the warmth of my mouth.
Testing.
Tasting.
Teasing.
My feet shuffled backwards until the back of my legs hit the bed but Nate didn’t stop moving. It wasn’t until he’d pushed me down onto the bed and covered his body with mine, did he lift his lips.
