Pippa Gallagher is rushed in to hospital following a traffic accident.
As Pippa lies unconscious, she is aware of fragments. The day she met Steve Gallagher, her best friend and the man who would become the love of her life. The heartbreak she felt tonight as she got into her car, her eyes blurry from tears.
Meanwhile Steve sits at her bedside, his eyes fixed on her pale, still face. He has no idea where his wife was going when she crashed. No clue as to why she became distracted behind the wheel. All he knows is that she is his world. And that he wasn’t there when she needed him most.
For the next twelve hours, Steve tells Pippa all the reasons he loves her.
But is it too late? Can Pippa find her way back to him?
I loved the way this book has been written by not one author but by two. Not only do we experience the woman’s perspective but also the man’s perspective on a love story. It is such a clever concept and it really did work. We also as readers get to hear Pippa and Steve’s story from when they first met and what happens after. Then we flit to the present day and find Pippa has been in a car accident, Steve had no idea where she was going, but will she be ok? they both have a lot of history and they both managed to find each other again but will it be a second time lucky? The story had me gripped the whole way through, some parts of the book I couldn’t believe what I was reading. There are parts that are funny but some parts I did shed a few tears. I was just hoping Pippa would be ok. The last few pages I raced through as I just had to know, I think I was holding my breath incase. A book I will truly not forget in a long time. It is such a moving story. An excellent read, the authors have done a sterling job writing this one.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
