About the book
This is not a typical love story, but it’s our love story.

Anna wasn’t looking for love when Adam swept her off her feet but there was no denying their connection, and she believed they would be together forever.

Years later, cracks have appeared in their relationship. Anna is questioning whether their love can really be eternal when a cruel twist of fate delivers a crushing blow, and Anna and Adam are completely lost to one another. Now, Anna needs Adam more than ever, but the way back to him has life-changing consequences.

Is a second chance at first love really worth the sacrifice? Anna needs to decide and time is running out…
It's fair to say that Anna is in a complete funk when she goes on holiday. Dumped and feeling unwanted - a pity party is the way to go. What she doesn't expect is to meet the love of her life quite unexpectedly.

Adam and Anna are a match made in heaven until Anna and her 'plans' start to destroy their solid foundation. Her obsession comes between them, but it's something else entirely that leaves their relationship in tatters.

There's a part of the book about halfway through. I can't go into details because of spoilers, which is a shame because it is an incredibly interesting idea. Personally I felt as if Anna was absolutely crossing boundaries and it was all about her, however the world it explores is futuristic and opens plenty of doors.

Henley gives readers the perfection the majority hopes for when it comes to relationships and romance, whilst simultaneously giving us the more realistic aspect of the same. Love is never perfect. Lives are never lived the way we quite expect.

It's a story that has a magical and inexplicable element to it and it's also one of hope. A tale of loss, being able to forgive oneself and understanding that sometimes life can be fulfilling even when it doesn't turn out the way you planned it. Enjoy the moments you have instead of longing for what could have been.
