Let's start off by saying this is a brand new author for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our first read by them.
This was story unique I have never read a book like this before so it was a bit refreshing.This story was a bit emotional but, not in a heart wrenching way.Emmaline and what is happening to her it tragic and sad and even though she is dying her life is about living her last days to the fullest and making new friends and love and laughter and seeing to her family before she goes.I found this women to be so strong and brave and loving and we loved her witty sense of humor.
Then you have Davan who was the complete opposite and bit of a bear and controlling and overwhelming and threating and his constant presence is like that but, due to his occupation you understand him better this way and why he is the way he is but, his situation makes him vulnerable and he just hates that and he is an honorable man.
Davan and Pia (nickname) definitely had chemistry and their romance was a bit unconventional but, it made for some really laugh out loud moments and some heartbreaking ones to.We loved the love hate kind of thing going on between the two but, it really wasn't hate just a whole lot of bad timing and the situation itself.
We loved the unlikely friendships that formed and you could tell that if things were different it would be a lasting one.Then you had Pia friends who made us laugh time and time again and how Pia's work situation here again made some pretty laugh out loud moment as well.
Overall we really enjoyed the story from cover to cover.The story made us sad but, it was also funny and then you had some some really interesting surprises that arose with its character's that we didn't see coming.We really loved the characters and found them fun and refreshing.Looking forward to part two of the series and the series itself whetted by appetite to go back a read the series from the very beginning.
