☆✮ My Review ✮☆
☆ I received an ARC via Love Between the Sheets in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆
Two individuals, both not a stranger to heartbreak and loss, come together in this unforgettable story that left me a little teary.
I’ve always loved reads that circle around the importance of love and family and this book has it in every single breath of it.
Jules is a woman carrying an unbearable suffrage that only those who have experienced it can imagine. And Guy (hah, what a name!), is man carrying the world on his shoulders.
When both meet through Finn, one of Guy’s children and also Jules’ new patient—Guy and Jules find themselves whisked away on a tumultuous attraction...
Along with, finally confronting heart-wrenching grief, loss, budding friendship, and the thrall of falling in love.
It was not an easy partnership, that’s for sure. Each have hang ups and heavy real-life issues on their plates. With Guy being a doctor, a father to one healthy and one ailing child, and a tragedy on his back. And Jules being scarred beyond compare, it was quite a trek, watching them open themselves to the other and learning how to heal from their pasts.
Guy and Jules are absolute perfection and most certainly “soul-mates” in every sense of the word. Authors Riley Mackenzie did an astounding job bringing these characters to life and bringing home the vulnerability of valid predicaments and how in the end there is always a light at the end of the tunnel no matter how bleak things may get.
Gawd, this book was a gem!!
☆✮ About the Authors ✮☆
Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us!
We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.
It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.
So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).
When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school.
Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?
Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.
So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
