Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Life We Almost Had by Amelia Henley

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for The Life We Almost Had by Amelia Henley!

What They Say:

This is not a typical love story, but it’s our love story.

Anna wasn’t looking for love when Adam swept her off her feet but there was no denying their connection, and she believed they would be together forever.

Years later, cracks have appeared in their relationship. Anna is questioning whether their love can really be eternal when a cruel twist of fate delivers a crushing blow, and Anna and Adam are completely lost to one another. Now, Anna needs Adam more than ever, but the way back to him has life-changing consequences.

Is a second chance at first love really worth the sacrifice? Anna needs to decide and time is running out…

A beautiful and emotional love story that asks, how far would you go for a second chance at first love? Perfect for fans of The Man Who Didn’t Call and Miss You

What I Say:

This is not your typical love story. It is so much more complex. It's tragically sad and wonderfully romantic. It's clever and sweet and deep. It makes you question how far you would go for love and what you would do if it was tragically taken from you. 

I fully understand some of the struggles Anna and Adam face. I've faced (and am facing) them too and it's so difficult to watch the life you dreamed of disappear time after time. The pressure it can put on a relationship too, is brutal. It takes such a strong resolve to keep it together.

Adam and Anna's relationship is not smooth sailing but it's their love story and it's beautiful and complicated. Complex and yet so simple at its core. 

Tragedy strikes and turns everything upside down. Can they ever recover and have the life they dreamt of? The science in this book is so thoroughly researched it's impressive. Kudos to Amelia for that! It's a huge credit to her as it proves her dedication to her craft. 

There is so much emotion in this story and I laughed and cried. I sobbed actually. Beautiful from the first page to the very last word. I loved it! 10/10

The Life We Almost Had is out now! Thanks to the publisher, HQ Stories, and Netgalley for allowing me to read an advanced e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!

What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
