I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The latest book in the signs of love series is incredible. I went into this story blind, needing only to know that it was a Mia Sheridan book. Preston and Lia’s story is absolutely heart wrenching. This book is a perfect example of the things we don’t say are the things that haunt us the most. There are so many things that these two characters needed to say, so many hurts that could have been prevented if only they had opened up to each other. Their story is complicated by so many outside forces but in the end there is no denying their connection. I absolutely loved Preston. His need to be a man of his word was an amazing thing. That mattered to him more than anything. More than his brother and almost more than Lia. He was loyal to a fault. Unfortunately his integrity is the very thing that causes both him and Lia so much pain. Lia made me sad most of the time. Her life has been so hard from the moment she was born. She has never known love, in any form, not even from her own mother. The only comfort she has ever had is her friendship with Preston and Cole. Even with them though, she feels like a burden. The only way she knows to cope is to keep her head down, and never ask for anything.
The angst factor is high in this book. My heart was twisted in knots for most of this story. The beauty of any Sheridan book is the realness of the story and the raw emotions that she is able to evoke. Preston and Lia’s story could happen to any one. She writes characters that are relatable, writes emotions that we have all felt at one time or another. She has a way of breaking your heart slowly but purposefully, only with the intention of healing it and making it better than it was before. Yes, you will cry, yes you will physically feel the pain of the characters, but the love in this story is so beautiful that it is worth every second.
