Blurb: How do you hold on to a love that is slowly slipping away from you?
Can you let go of the past when you know what is in the future?
And how do you cope when you know that every kiss is a countdown to goodbye?
This is the story of a love affair, of Ryan and Molly and how they fell in love and were torn apart. The first time Molly kissed Ryan, she knew they’d be together forever. Six years and thousands of kisses later she’s married to the man she loves. But today, when Ryan kisses her, Molly realises how many of them she wasted because the future holds something which neither of them could have ever predicted…
Review: So, here we have what I would call a predictable read, saying that though I still liked it. I did struggle through the first chapters, and I believe it would read so much better as a straight diary. It was so jumbled & confusing, I found myself putting it down a few times. Once I managed to get past the struggle I automatically knew what came next. Is this because I’ve read so many books? Or is this a problem to everyone? The ending I thought could have had a bit more depth too. I would have liked a bit more. I feel truly awful here 😦 (sorry, Ali)
OK so to the good! The storyline is fabulous. It’s well researched & holds no bounds, which is a big plus.
As much as I struggled through and guessed what would happen earlier on. I actually liked the book. It was warm, caring, emotional and honest. The closeness between all characters is one longed after by many. What was refreshing to see was the every day mishaps, arguments, friendship and love throughout. It did make me want to kiss my husband every time I seen him, and want to remember my memories I have with him. Without a doubt this book will be a favourite by many.
