The second his hand reached hers, Addison felt a warmth spread through her body. The innocent contact stopped her mid-stand and she whipped her head down. His sturdy hand was barely resting on hers, and yet it was as if he had clenched it directly onto her heart. Holy. She pulled her hand back instinctively, confused by her body’s reaction to such an innocent touch. What the hell am I getting myself into?
First of all let me say that I was approached by the author to read this book. She thought I would enjoy it based on my previous book reviews and she wasn’t wrong!
Have you ever laid eyes on someone and got this eerie feeling that you knew them from somewhere? And there’s this pull off ‘em and you don’t know why?
I loved it! This story was so realistic. I couldn’t help but like it and I totally saw myself as Addy. Yes, of course it was in a “day dream!” 😉
Clementine is about a man and a woman who meet and yes they fall in love. It’s not your typical dating as everything seems too innocent. They hang out, talk all the time and though it’s clear they have “deeper” feelings for each other they don’t cross that very thin line. The “relationship status” is unclear and the journey to figure it out was alluring!
I loved the characters, Wilson developed them perfectly. She doesn’t give you too little or too much information. Addison is a smart young lady who…I wouldn’t say has low self-esteem but she sure doesn’t give herself enough credit. But then again what girl in her twenty’s thinks she’s God’s gift to men? She is a student hoping to become a PA. Holden is a very bright, charming, sexy surgeon. With Addison he let’s loose and is so caring you can’t help but swoon.
Life or fate, if you believe in that sort of thing, has a funny way of playing out. Addy needs to leave for PA school and a misunderstanding tears them apart. In life one needs to take the good in with the bad and that is exactly what Wilson gave us. I especially enjoyed the fact that though Addy’s heart was broken she still tried to move on with her life.
I promise you that during the sad parts I felt the pain but boy did it pay off to get to the GOOD parts.
My Favorite Line:
“If souls are reincarnated Holden, you and I have lived a hundred lifetimes and maybe in everyone one, we’ve found our way to one another. You’re my one person; you’re my fate, Holden”
