Like nothing you have ever read from L.A. Casey before, a story of loss, love, and finding yourself in the darkest of times.
He was my best friend, my best not-really-big-brother and my best protector. He was my best everything. He was mine.
Coming home is hard for Lane. Hard because Harry, her beloved uncle, has died suddenly, but also because of him. Kale.
Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane’s reason for leaving home and moving to New York. Seeing him with someone else, in love with someone else, shouldn’t have hurt. But it did. It really, really did. So she upped sticks and left, started a new life and cut herself off from her past.
But now she’s back and all the feelings are right there. As if she had never left.
Emotions are running high for everyone, and tragedy has a funny way of bringing people together. But is Lane reading the signs right? Are they still just friends, or is there something more?
Wow this story had me feel every emotion. I cried, laughed and smiled all the way through it. Once I picked up the book, I couldn't put it down and had to know if it will work out okay.
We meet Lane, she lives in New York and works as a freelance Editor. She moved away from York six years ago, running from heart ache, and she only now speaks to her Uncle Harry as her and her family are still arguing over the move. Until one day she gets a letter from her brother Lochlan what breaks her heart to let her know her Uncle had passed away. She rushes to return to York to attend the funeral. Her life and heart break comes all back to her when she walks into her parents house and sees her family and the one person who held her heart but broke it.
We meet Kale Hunt, he lives in York and is Lane's best friend. But his life got turned upside down when she ran away six years ago and then again five years ago. He is no longer the same man he was when Lane left, but he can't help but smile when he hears stories for her. He doesn't know how to act now that she is back in York for Uncle Harry's funeral but he knows they need to talk.
Will Lane and Kale talk? Will they get over what teared them apart all those years ago?
This was so beautifully written, you couldn't help but fall in love with every single character and want to pull them in for a hug when things get rough. We also see visions of the past to further explain the story. Reviewed for Words Turn Me On.
I pushed my glasses up the bridge of my nose as I reread the letter from my brother for the millionth time since I received it two days ago. It stated two things. One, my uncle passed away. My godfather and dear friend was gone. And two, I had to go home.
I wasn’t jumping for joy about either fact.
I looked up from the worn paper Lochlan’s letter was scribbled upon and gazed out the window of the train I was sitting inside.
The Yorkshire’s countryside passed me by, and in seconds I was lost in the green beauty of it. Unfortunately, the glamour of the never-ending dreamlike view wasn’t enough to mask the pain in my chest. The horrendous agony quickly brought me back to the present, and it screamed that I couldn’t run from it.
Not this time, Lane, a sour voice in my mind hissed. You can’t escape this.
Nothing beautiful to the naked eye or soothing to the delicate ear could erase the inevitable reality I would soon have to face head on. I shifted in my seat as my stomach roiled at the thought of what the next few days entailed.
Why did this have to happen? I glumly wondered.
