Genre: Contemporary Romance. Emotional.
Damn, dude! This book made me cry like a little baby. And I wasn't expecting to either! Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino is another beautiful love story. While I'll admit that I thought it was really slow for the first 20-30 percent, it certainly picked up for me. I mean, the rollercoaster of emotions that this book brings about really made my heart race and made me want to continue reading to see what was going on and what was going to happen. So, while it may have been a little slow in the beginning, I think it worked out well for the story. Because if the author dove right into what was going on, then it wouldn't have held as much appeal. The fact that we didn't know in the beginning made it all the more beautiful.
In this standalone, readers are going to meet 3 very different and very beautiful characters. Each of these characters- Charlotte, Adam, and Seth, are very important to the story. Now, it's not a love triangle like some may think when seeing three names, so don't worry about that. But rather, a journey of love, soulmates, and finding oneself again after the storm.
Charlotte is the heroine and main focus of the story. She is quite insecure, has a hard time holding both relationships and jobs, but it a very realistic character. I love how Renee didn't make her the "perfect heroine" and think I liked her character more because of it. Anyway, Charlotte is on a journey of sorts through this story as she is navigating the insta love of a one night stand, and then trying to find it again. It's am emotional journey, one that is going to wreak havoc on her's and readers lives, and is just plain beautiful. I can't wait for readers to meet her.
Adam is one of the hero's within the story. This man had me by the heart from the minute I met him and held me throughout the story. But there is something not right about him. And when readers find out just what the something is, well, you're gonna loose it. I won't spoil the story. You just have to read it.
Seth. Ah, I loved Seth. I was rooting for him from the get-go and was crossing my fingers in hope that he too would get the HEA he deserved. He is the type of characters that has a magnetism to him and the honesty and care he holds throughout the story made him very likable.
So how do all these characters come together? And what type of impact with they all have on each others lives? You need to READ IT!!! And you'll find out for yourself.
Overall, I truly enjoyed this emotional and heartfelt story from Renee Carlino. She always seems to hit these romances out of the park and I just know that many are going to fall deeply for this story.
