Oh god! This story was everything.

This was my first read from Rachel Leigh and was certainly not what I was expecting... she did not disappoint.

Firstly her writing style is magical, I loved the flow of the story - particularly in the beginning where we get the sense of a re-telling, it was done to perfection. Then there is the attention to detail and the way she is able to immerse you in the story, it was all done beautifully.

I loved the characters! I personally felt their unique trauma and loved how they progressed individually and together throughout the story. Ryker and Kit are just perfection, both multi-layered and fighting their own demons, but so much stronger for having each other. Plus I loved the secondary characters, especially Kaylee who brought such a fun energy to the story.

Without any spoilers (which will blow your mind... you will not see this one coming) this story is a powerful, emotional, heartbreaking, and beautiful read about love, life, and enjoying "all the little things".

Amazing job to Rachel Leigh on such a beautiful read!

"The little things aren't to be missed. Whether it's a moment in time, a memory etched in your mind, or a candy bar before bed. One day, they all become the big things."
