Sometimes life’s unforeseen paths lead us to discovering sides of ourselves we never knew existed.

Three years ago, Max left for Alaska to find what he thought he’d lost, but now he realizes just how much he left behind. Max teaches Ace that sometimes a little crazy is exactly what life needs while learning that some chances are worth taking, regardless of the risks. But how do you know when you’ve met the right person? And will they be prepared to experience one of life’s biggest obstacles? Falling in love isn’t easy, but holding on to it is where the real challenge lies.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I get this random email from this author, asking I'd like to sign up to review her new release. Naturally, I check out her other books. I jump on Amazon and read the sample. I realize that I'm thoroughly engrossed in the sample. Which, is usually rare. I can tell within a couple pages if I'm going to like/enjoy/love a book. So I download it. I was in a reading slump. Nothing that I needed to read, was doing anything for me.
Max and Ace's story, is a beautiful, heartbreaking and enjoyable romance. I quickly fell in love with these two. I felt what the characters were feeling and that right there is my number one. I love connecting with characters on a deep level. I teared up more than once, I laughed. The Bosse family are hilarious. I even loved Kendall, in her crazy ways.
“Love is an emotion that until spoken, I hadn’t realized the immense power that it holds.”
Their love by far has its ups and downs. Sometimes I was frustrated with Ace, having to run all the time. When things got hard. But then I also understood it. The need to just get away. And how does it end like that?! I had a gut feeling throughout the story, that something major would happen. And I wasn’t wrong.
I'm wondering how; I had no idea who Mariah Dietz was previous to this. I'm glad she emailed me. Otherwise, I would never have fallen in love with their story. Overall, It's Five Boundless Stars from me.
