When you hear the name ‘Lily’ you start to think about a little girl. This isn’t only Lily’s opinion but also mine that’s why I had to struggle somthimes to imagine an actual grow up woman of the age of 23. But now let’s talk about the plot.
I don’t know where to start, so I’ll start with my favorite character: Atlas Corrigan. Atlas is like God himself in person. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating but serious he’s perfect ! You learn to know him as the boy who lived in that old house beside Lily’s without water, electricity or even without a heater. Nowadays almost nobody would think about helping him out but Lily did it and that’s the best decision she made. Atlas knows how difficult Lily it has living at home with her parents and I love it how he tries to make the best in this situation.
Lily Bloom (yep, that’s really her name) is the person I really admire in this book. Although she had an aweful childhood and many of us would maybe break apart because of that, she made it through it, went to college and followed her passion for the nature and opened an own flower shop. You see the irony ? 😀 She’s such a nice and inteligent girl so I don’t understand how she could meet Ryle.
Yeah, Ryle Kincaid is a neurosurgeon, is smart, charming, funny, sensitive and he even listen when you talk with him and I’m really sorry for what happened in his past BUT, the big but, if someone would treat me like Ryle treats Lily sometimes I’d leave him. But I know how difficult it is for women like Lily to leave their husbands or boyfriends and CoHo showed it to us even more with the book.
At the end I only have one thing I was quite dissappointed about: actually in every CoHo book there’s something like a plot twist or something that shocks you but there never came such an extrem situation like this. Or did I overread something ?? If yes tell me !! 😮
Okay that’s a really long review but if you’ve read it till the end: Congratulations ! You made it ! For more questions about the book just comment below 🙂
