Book 3 of 2019
Honestly, I don’t know quite where to start with this book. It’s been on my TBR list for a good few months and something made me finally pick it up yesterday. It was the best decision I made all day. I’d already finished one book yesterday and by 11.45pm I finally put this book down. I’d made it to Chapter 25 and I needed sleep. It still took me forever to fall asleep because I kept thinking about this book and wanted to pick it up again.
Today, I have finished it. In less than 24 hours I have absolutely devoured this book. I kept forcing myself to take little breaks and remind myself to go to the toilet or eat/drink. I have lived every second of this book and I urge you all to give it a read.
Cally is 30 years old when she is diagnosed with cancer. She runs away from everything. From her boyfriend of 6 years, her job, her friends, the cancer itself. She runs to London where she starts a six month house sit that just happens to be next door to Bay. Bay is a highly tattooed artist who is rude, obnoxious and usually, either drunk or high. They’re completely chalk and cheese, but they have the most amazing chemistry. Their friendship blossoms and they fall in love but neither wants to tell their secrets and it threatens to rip them apart.
Just reading the synopsis I had a feeling this book may have me in tears and boy, was I right. I was incredible. The ending – WOW!
Cally made me want to run to London and do exactly what she was doing… escaping! (Yes, definitely escaping – not stripping. That, I couldn’t do!)
Bay is a loveable rogue. You know he’s bad news but my god, you love him almost as much as Cally does.
I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads. If I could, I’d have given it more. I highly highly recommend this book. This is one book that won’t be going to the charity shop. I’ll keep this forever and I’ll recommend it to anyone that will listen… but they can buy their own copy.
354 pages and published by Accent Press. This book has made its way onto my list of ALL TIME favourites. Not just for this year… all time! I don’t think I’ll ever forget this book. I will be looking out for more books by Grace Lowrie in the future.
