A second chance story featuring Anna and Adam, who were not looking for love when they found each other. But unfortunately years later there relationship breaks down but a cruel twist comes to light. Can Anna find her way back to Adam despite a life-changing twist that life throws at them?

As the quote says above. 'This is not your typical love story' and Holy hell this is 100% the truth.

Characters

Amelia has created the best characters with Anna, and Adam, they are just perfect. All the right likability and also second thoughts throughout. The other characters also just give the story an extra edge. 

5 stars
Writing Style/Pacing

Amelia Henley was born to write this powerful, heartbreaking and emotional book and bring this story to life. Although Amelia is another pen name for Louise Jensen, a psychological thriller writer. This 100% shows her ability that she can write very well in multiple genres and I think this gives her an extra ability to craft this contemporary romance. It is a beautifully researched and also gives you an element of suspense. 

5 stars
