Charlotte and Nathan were supposed to be forever. They grew up together. Their families were intertwined. Charlotte was Nathan’s first love. Nathan was Charlotte’s first everything.
Until they weren’t.
How do you hold on to the person you know in your heart you are supposed to be with when everything and everyone in the universe is telling you it’s over?
How many times does a heart break?
When is enough…..enough?
How long is forever?
But when I close my eyes, I can see him—and me. I can see me pressed up against the mirror in the bathroom, my hands making starfish prints as I brace myself against his thrusts. I can hear his harsh breathing, his commands to come, come now, Charlotte. There was that passage of time that felt endless when he was between my legs, licking me softly and leisurely as if there wasn’t anything in this world that gave him more pleasure than helping me find my own. I touch myself, but it’s useless. My body wants one thing: Nathan Jackson.
I’m on fire and the ache of want is so acute it’s like a knife in my chest. I’ve had multiple surgeries, chemo treatments, radiation but that’s nothing compared to what I feel now.
Time and distance had dulled my pain and that my desire and love for Nathan had actually started to ease only to be stoked into high, hot flames by his reappearance in my life.
He is the poison and the antidote.
I was scared to begin this book. After reading the synopsis, I was expecting angst. I was expecting all the feels. I knew it was going to be good. I knew it was going to pull my heart strings… I love Jen’s writing and I had high expectations.
I had every right to be scared, but oh my stars did Jen make it worth it. So. Worth. It. So once I started?
This book… oh, this book got me. It knocked me on my ass. I have read books that are constantly on a high. They never build, so it somehow makes them dull. It doesn’t work. There’s no climax. Imagine riding a rollercoaster without the climbs and falls. The Charlotte Chronicles starts off with an emotional bang that ricochets until the very end. It works and it’s brilliant.
I want to tell you so much about this book, but I don’t want to give you any hints. This is a beautiful story with real-life situations that aren’t written about often enough. It’s a journey you just need to experience.
I laughed, I nearly cried, I squirmed… this book has all the good, the bad, and the thought-provoking. Sweet, sexy, and hilarious.
Charlotte is amazing, brave, stellar, insert every adjective that makes a woman everything you want her to be. She isn’t perfect, but that only adds to my love for her.
Nathan is learning. He wants to become his own man. He wants to be everything Charlotte needs, but isn’t sure if he deserves her.
They both have to grow up. Learn to love apart, learn to love together. Learn to fight, learn to survive, learn to forgive. Their love is undeniable and everlasting. It’s quite beautiful to read and did I mention sexy? There is some dirty, steamy, sensual, loving, romance in this book.
“A hand dips between us, and his sure fingers find me, pressing down, circling and bringing me over the cliff into the free fall of space called ecstasy.”
I cannot say enough good things. This has hit my Must Reads List. So… read it. Haha.
Oh and to Mrs. Frederick?
