What would bring you happiness in a world that was suddenly empty?
For Lucy Crane, the answer is simple: her daughter. When her husband is killed in a tragic accident, Lucy loses her desire to live, but only one thing keeps her going – her unborn daughter. Focusing on being a mother helps Lucy cope with her loss, but kids grow up and they leave home, eventually. Eighteen years after losing her first and only love, Lucy is faced with the opportunity to find the happiness for which she’s always longed. Her own fears become her worst enemies as she learns how to embrace love once again.
Evan Donovan is also facing his own struggles. Forced to retire from the FDNY because of lung damage caused by 9/11, Evan moves to upstate New York where he hopes to find a little peace and quiet. Old habits die hard, and Evan’s hero complex and survivor’s guilt constantly remind him of how difficult it is to be vulnerable. But for the first time in his life, he’s tired of being alone.
Drawing strength from one another, Lucy and Evan discover how beautiful it is to let love be a part of their lives.

I had the honor to get a copy of the book, and I have to say this is one of the best books I have read this year. This book is simple a masterpiece, I have felt for this books in ways that are amazing for me, this was my first adult book, with mature couple not my typical teenage love book, and I regret NOTHING, if this author make books in the future about mature people I will read them all because she is simple amazing. She is one of the many reason I love reading, the power of taking me away for a whole day with a book, with stories  that are so connected to real life but never leaving that spark of fiction that we all love to read is simple great. 

Lucy and Evan story is a wonderful and enjoyable story, they are both broken and ‘’old’’, scare to love again by the different consequences of life, but as everyone says ‘’You have your soulmate, be patience it will come’’ this story made me realize that, it doesn’t matter how old you are if you love is out there it will come eventually maybe sooner, maybe later. 

‘’We’re both so afraid to lose again, that we never let anyone in.’'

This characters and their situation will make you cry, fall in love, laugh, smile like an idiot as if Evan is talking to you because yes he is that wonderful, that will just be captivated by this book since page 1. It will teach you lesson about love, lost and life, which is why I enjoy this book too, so many quotes that you just need to hear it sometimes to keep going on life. This book will provide you that, such a wise author.

‘’If there’s one thing i’ve learned in all of my years, no matter how many downs there are in life, there’s always one more up to pull you out of what you think will be the worst.’’

Besides everything I’m going all fangirl now so Evan, he is so hot ladies, you will want to do him all over, and he is such a sweet boyfriend with Lucy and very patients too that it you will want to do him too! But after all you will see still how real he is, how he is not perfect but yet perfect to the eyes of her love Lucy, and that is how love is not perfect yet perfect for you or your partner when it is true love.
Lucy on the other hand was a beautiful character too, someone I know that if it was real you will look up to her, she is a fighter, she is a strong woman, she is someone that I always have the will to try and be that kind of adult in my future. 

''I find myself noticing beauty in a world I was certain would always be an ugly place.
I know that Lucy’s played a part in that discovery as well.’'

I give this book a lot of 5 stars perfect perfect book!

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm.  Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book.  She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher.  Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students.  Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.

Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently.  When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it.  It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

 “Oh, I love this movie.” She settles on Forrest Gump as I grab my second slice.

“So, you already know about my history. What about you? Have you ever been married?” Forrest’s proposal to Jenny plays in the background.

“No. I mean, I’ve had a few relationships here and there, but work always got in the way. Staying single was somehow easier.”

“Same here. I mean, when Melanie was a kid, it was much easier to just focus on that part of my life.”
“Now?” I hazard a question that takes even me by surprise.
She puts her plate down on the coffee table and swallows back a large sip of water. “Now, I’m not so sure.”
Suddenly, my mind races with the possibilities of what her words mean. It’s crazy to think how just a few encounters with Lucy have made me re-evaluate my feelings. Obviously, she feels the same way. A calm and peaceful air falls on us as a small smile curls at my lips.
A comfortable silence fills the space as we watch the movie, recalling some memories when certain scenes come up.
Nothing prepares me for Lucy’s reaction when Jenny and Forrest get married and she tells him she’s sick. I try not to look at her, wanting to avoid making her feel like she’s in the spotlight or anything like that. I do notice a few stray tears streaking down her cheeks so I can only imagine what’s to come.
As we watch Forrest sitting beside Jenny’s grave, reading a letter from their son, Lucy reaches for a napkin. Clutching it to her chest, I can see her breathing rapidly. What were just a few tears earlier is now a steady stream. She doesn’t say anything, won’t even look at me, but I can’t watch her cry like this.
I shift on the small, overstuffed sofa and drape my arm around her. The top of her head fits perfectly into the crook of my shoulder. The scent of her hair takes over my senses; the sound of her softly sniffling through her tears tugs at my heart.
I alternate between squeezing her arm and tracing my fingers up over her shoulder. When she seems to have gathered her emotions, calming down a bit, my instincts take over and I act seemingly without thinking.
Or maybe I am thinking and I’m just afraid of what I’m thinking.
Gently pressing my lips to the top of her soft, brown hair feels like second nature. She tenses momentarily, and I realize I may have just overstepped my boundaries.
“Sorry about that.” I straighten in my seat and try to move my arm, but her fingers fall to my forearm. She looks up at me through long lashes with puffy, red eyes from crying.
“Don’t be.” Her voice is soft, angel-like. “It’s nice to be held.”
That piece of information prompts me to pull her even closer. “Well, I’m glad I could be of service.”

She laughs softly and then takes a deep breath before she shifts to move away from me, which just makes me pull her close once again. “Don’t,” planting another quick kiss to her head, “it’s nice to have someone to hold.”
