a book in review!

Brief Summary:
A timeless tale of young romance. 

Lorona Connelly is ready for a change from her carefully planned, bookish life. When sparks fly at a costume party, she embraces a chance for romance with the handsome Kestrin Feather. However, she quickly realizes that even love and destiny may not be enough to overcome the reality of an overprotective mother-in-law and Kestrin's long, tarnished history of relationships. 

When Lorona's curiosity leads her to Kestrin's journal, doubt plagues them both with insecurities and threatens the relationship. Can true love overcome the odds, or was their whirlwind romance just a frivolous crush? Author Elise Stephens shares a journey of young love, fate, and wounded trust in the story of Lorona and Kestrin, a couple who must learn to overcome their fears to share a life together.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This story was written very well and the characters build throughout the whole book. You can feel the connection between Lorona and Kestrin. The story reads like a movie, everything is very easy to "see". The romance part of the book will make you swoon and you'll find yourself not wanting to put it down. I recommend this 3 star book to anyone who loves a good romance, xo!
