APC PUBLISHER: Meghan Quinn RELEASED: june 21, 2018 GENRE: contemporary romance LENGTH: FORMAT: ebook
Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.Be somebody’s hero.That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.
My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.I’m smarter.
Stronger. A man.
And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.
Focus. Resolve. Determination. But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.
One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.Smart. Charming. Beautiful.Rory changed everything.
Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.
Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.
And with one single incident, I fly off course. FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Colby has a dream, a dream that has taken up his whole life. To prove that he can do it, show those that told him he couldn’t. He has one goal in mind and keeps it that way. That is until Rory throws herself into the picture. Not giving up to get to know him, she weasels her way into his heart. They have a love that can transcend distance. One that would never fade. But like every good love story, there’s something that happens. That sets them on different paths. I enjoyed their story, and I loved being able to see them grow together. To see the growth of their characters and how much goodness is in their hearts. Quinn is an excellent storyteller, she has a way of writing gripping stories, as well as downright hilarious ones. As much as I wanted this one to grab me and make me feel this love these two felt. I had a foreboding feeling that something was going to happen. I was able to see their love flourish but it did not grab me emotionally. Of course, this won’t be the same for everyone. This is a duet, so it will be interesting to see how the full story plays out. In the end, you are left with so many questions. I’m hoping that those questions are answered. Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
