I fell in love with this book from the second I started reading it. I have been fangirling about it for weeks and now I finally get to post my review! :)
Lily can’t find it in herself to leave Florida and go home to Colorado after her parents and sister died in a car accident three years ago. She has a traumatising past that she has been neglecting since the accident. While working at the beach, she meets Kyle- super hot! He later returns and carries her home after she falls asleep while working on the sand. He is my definition of ‘Prince Charming’.
“I want to chase the sunset with you.”
Kyle is attracted to Lily and promises to protect her cause he can see the hurt in her eyes. They continually meet on the beach until Kyle tells her what plans he has for her on their first date. At 24 years old, Lily’s date with Kyle is her very first. Kyle just wants to get to know her; when he asks her about her parents, he realises that it is a touchy subject. Lily knows that she has not been able to deal with the accident and the death of her family. She doesn’t want to drag Kyle into her dark past but he refuses to let her walk away – SWOON!!!
“I hope to one day lift that burden in those beautiful ocean blue eyes of yours and bring light into them.”
Kyle slowly starts to break down the walls around her heart and she starts to finally deal with the death of her parents and sister. But when a someone starts to send her cryptic letters; is it a fan of her books or someone seeking vengeance?
“For nearly three years, I had planned to never give my heart away in fear of loss, but now, I was afraid I already had.”
Kyle’s protectiveness of her is absolutely adorable. Between his romantic gestures and his admittance of his feelings at every chance he gets; he is the perfect book boyfriend for any female reader. If only he was real!
This book ends in a somewhat happy manner but there are so many unanswered questions. I NEED ‘MY BEAUTIFUL’ NOW!!!
