If you love books that tear your heart out, then this is the one that wrecks you. 5 STARS and a BIG HEART for this book. This book was Cruel and Beautiful at the same time – the book title really fits perfectly to the story because I couldn’t come up with other words to describe this. It felt like I fell in love for the first time just to get pushed over the edge of a cliff. My heart got huge with all this love for the characters just to get shredded to pieces. This story is perfectly written and the time switching from the past and present was well done. This is one of the best and saddest books that I’v read. It will stay with me forever. I’m an emotional person but to be honest I haven't cried this hard in a long time. This book is a whole 'nother level of sad but to be fair I have to say that this book isn’t all about crying, some scenes were hilarious and I had to laugh so hard. There was so much love involved and also a lot of funny moments. How can you not love Drew McKnight? Sexy and handsome doctor Drew. He is the perfect man a woman can wish for. He is loving, caring, selfless and gives everything he has – body, heart and soul. And did I mention he looks yummy?! =) But even though Drew could have outshined all of the other characters, he didn’t. He let them even shine brighter and that speaks a lot for him. Cate was heartbroken, lost and struggled over what she has done. With Drew at her side she was like a blooming flower. I loved how the characters in the book were written and made up. They felt so real to me and that’s what I felt already when reading the Prologue - which had me in tears. Even the Families of Drew and Cate were well written and I could really imagine them clearly in my head. Everything fitted perfectly together. Also the friends and colleagues made the story so much more real and interesting. Ps.: Don’t judge the book by the cover because it doesn’t prepare you for the heartbreak which you will experience when reading this beautifully cruel story. - I received an ARC of this book from the author through the Fifty Shades Support Group on Goodreads in exchange for a honest review. -
