(Two Hearts, One Soul Duet: Book One)
by London Saint James
Winter Perri never truly understood love until she met Austin Carlyle—the man who would rock her world to its foundations and give her something to believe in. But the night before they were to be married, the fairytale shattered.
Thirteen years later Winter is pulled out of her seclusion only to have a painful past confront her, and when it does, she’s left questioning reality, because the impossible is looking back at her with the face of a destroying angel, and piercing eyes in too familiar shades of blue.
This has been quite a roller coaster! A love story about heartbreaks and second chances. Winter Perri and Austin Carlyle had it good when they started seeing each other, I thought there’s was quite romantic and sensational.. Until everything shattered to pieces on the eve of their wedding day, and I thought I wouldn’t be able to recover myself.
I really thought there’s nothing more that would make me cry the moment Winter Perri’s body had gone limp upon hearing the news about her beloved. My heart bled out to oblivion. When I continued with the story, I was expecting a lighter mood surrounding Winter. But lo and behold, Chandler and Cayden Cain’s involvement in this frozen fairytale got me shocked and gutted. I told myself, this better not be another new lovestory destined to end in doom. But as the pages went, my eyes continued to go misty until I got to the last page and my eyes were already dripping and my nose swollen and my mouth quivering. Gosh, I couldn’t stop my ugly crying!
This story had been long and winding, I thought I wouldn’t be able to finish it. But I did. And I’m glad I did even though I cried 90% of the time. I’m glad I read this because it reminded me about life, about the people we love, about how precious every second of time is. This has been really a powerful book, something that I would cherish forever and always.
This is my first London Saint James book, and even though she had me wailing like a harpy, I am looking forward to reading more of her books soon!
