I’d like to thank Sienna and Terrie for sending me an e-arc of this book, it is a spinoff to Irish Kiss which I read earlier this year, I really enjoyed it. I fell in love with this book it got me in the spin and it was just perfect. It is a way more better than Irish Kiss and it was fantastic!
I really enjoyed the plot to this, I also loved although Ailis did have cancer when she was younger it didn’t take a central focus to the story that she used it to gain what she wanted which I thought was really good. I liked the attraction both Ailis and Danny had for each other and how they were trying so hard to fight it.
Ailis I loved her character, the way she tried to be so strong around Danny and then eventually she was strong enough to deal with him. I loved how passionate she was about music and yet when it came to performing in front of Danny she had stage fright. I loved how she wanted to concentrate on her music.
Wow at so many times Danny was an asshole. But he always believed in Ailis and what she could do with her music and I loved that. Despite wanting to push her away he still believed in her music. So many times his emotions were in a spin because for some odd reason he was pushing away. We do discover why but I won’t spoil that for you guys!
The story is told in dual point of view and we go from the past to the present and I loved how we got to see their relationship in the past and then the rebuilding in the present. I do have to say in some stories not many quotes stick out but this one did:
“I’ve only just learned how to breathe without you.”
This absolutely destroyed me. I have never felt so much pain than when I read this line, the emotions I felt. I could totally relate. It’s such a beautiful story, and it honestly destroyed me. Something about Sienna Blake’s writing just gets to me and she writes some of the most beautiful stories. That quote will always stick with me when I think of this book!
It’s an amazing story and an amazing book!
