“Second chances are few and far between, but there is always…a chance.”
WHOA! OH MY FREAKING GOSH!!! MJ Fields totally destroyed me with this book but in a good way though. I finished it late at night and literally stayed up several hours thinking about it.
Honestly, in 27 Truths I HATED LUKE and said as much in my review – I truly wanted to throat punch him. But let me tell you, Luke redeemed himself in a HUGE way and I finally understand the reasons for his actions that destroyed Eva beyond repair. What he did or said was ALL a LIE… But I SWOONED over Luke badly this time. You just have to read and see for yourself.
“Something amazing came from the wreckage and ruins. Something bigger than love and lies.”
Ava found her knight in shining armor but he died tragically in book 1. I adored Thomas for his kind and caring heart and the way he worships Eva. I still stand by that statement — even in 27 Lies Luke revealed something that Thomas did with Eva that wasn’t quite gentlemanly. I attribute his actions to a man claiming or marking his territory. It also could be that Thomas knows how badly Luke treated Eva so he wants Luke to pay for the hurt. I love Thomas but his journey ended. But anyways… on to 27 Lies, Luke comes back from serving his country a broken man physically and mentally. He needs a lot of help but he is not the only one. Eva is now a widow with 2 adorable children living alone in Brooklyn. She is destroyed and her spirit is broken. Eva is going through the motions, taking care of her children, but she is not actually living – she has isolated herself from all her loved ones. When Eva sees Luke again, so flawed, part of her cares about him. However, the bigger part of her wants nothing to do with Luke. But he has changed and he is not going to let her go without a fight. OH MAN!!!! Talking about the ANGST, it’s beyond what I can deal with. I was bawling my eyes out on and off the whole time. Let’s not forget the TWIST – you won’t know what’s coming until you are knocked on your ass. The relationship between Eva and Luke is turbulent. Eva wants to give in but she holds such anger mixed with grief and feels it is impossible to open her heart again. Luke is a patient man and proved himself to be a man of his word. He is strong, loyal, caring, and with a huge heart full of love. Eva is stubborn but she is strong, and deep down she is still the sweet princess that Luke has known her to be all their lives.
“Love doesn’t come with strings. You love someone, you love them for all they are, faults and all.”
MJ Fields amazed us all with her talent in writing such a beautiful second chance romance but with such a unique plot – a story of love, loss, healing, hope and second love and happiness. The author’s way of storytelling is very unique – I have never seen anything quite like it – it’s gorgeous, thought provoking, and absolutely addicting. Superb!!!!
