This book was very emotional. I really empathized for the couple’s struggle with infertility, and the reader feels instantly invested in their journey through their marriage’s breaking point. I am happily in love, but always fear the possibility that in some distant future, I could find myself in a similar situation with the love of my life. The fact that they were able to overcome their greatest struggle gave me hope that my husband and I can always overcome any struggles that may hit us in the future. The couple’s emotions were so selfish and complex and deep and raw that I felt like it was a true story. 

Compared to Hoover’s other works, this book left a little to be desired in my opinion. You definitely know you’re reading one of her earlier works while you’re reading it. Still enjoyable, and no doubt hopeful for those in a similar dynamic with their marriages.

here is my grand and miraculous unpopular opinion:

I got bored. 

and life is too short to not connect with books that don’t connect with you. 

this book is perfect for someone (and multiple someone’s judging by how popular this book is!), but that someone is not me. and that’s okay!! different books exist because everyone has different opinions, likes and dislikes. 

I loved loved loved the back and forth between the two timelines of when quinn first met graham and years later when their marriage is rapidly dissolved. 

what I didn’t love was the characters themselves. they were so self absorbed, AND REFUSED TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER, and then ... when they actually talked, they wouldn’t understand where the other was coming from. 

if there’s one thing I can’t handle in tropes, it’s that 😅👍🏼

also I finished this after watching multiverse of madness and I’m equally annoyed at both so maybe that had something to do with that lmao 

rating: 2 stars

"So while this year has been our toughest yet, I know one thing with complete certainty. I love you more this year than any year that came before it"


This book made me cry (maybe i’m just getting emotional)
I found that the two perspectives were really cool and the difference between the two was astronomical. My heart ached for the couple at the present time, and i really loved the ending.
It wasn't thrown away or completely unrealistic.

"I half turn and glance over at the alarm clock, right as it changes to midnight. Graham leans in to my ear and whispers "It's the eighth of August. Ten years later and we're happily married. I told you so" "
