I buried my twin sister six months after she found out she had cancer. Her funeral was three months ago. Today is our birthday and it started with delivery of letters from her.Thoughts on Believe in the Wish: Break out the tissues, y'all. This one made me weepy. *quietly curses Christi Snow as my cold, dead heart cracks open and spills all over the place*
It seems she didn’t trust me to move on after her death. She knows me too well. But how can I go on when my other half is just...gone? That’s not something I can recover from with a snap of my fingers. But I also can’t ignore her instructions even though I’d be perfectly content to cuddle up with my buddy, Johnnie Walker, and call it a year.
She has a list of things for me to do and there are rules attached.
There’s one major problem besides the fact it’s been three months since I left the house. I have to do all these things with her jerk of an ex, Hawk Simmons. He abandoned her shortly after she found out she was sick. If that wasn’t enough to make this a really bad idea, the fact that he makes an appearance in all my nighttime fantasies probably does.
I don’t think I can do this, but I owe it to my sister’s memory to try.
So. Ethan and Hawk. Ethan's a hot mess when we first meet him and he's not looking to pick himself out of his funk any time soon. Getting blindsided by his twin's dying wishes is probably the only thing able to shock him back into the world of the living. But Emma doesn't make it easy on him. NOT IN THE LEAST.
The list of things she leaves is one thing, pairing him up with Hawk is another. Because if being attracted to your twin's ex isn't bad enough, being forced to confront that maybe that ex isn't as bad as Ethan had come to believe is even worse.
Seriously, Hawk has his own issues to deal with and they give Ethan's a run for his money. Grief coupled with betrayal isn't an easy thing to get over and Hawk's kinda stuck in a rut. It takes time and the ingenuity of a dead woman to get him moving at all and his attraction to Ethan is the cherry on top.
What can I say? I liked this book. I liked Ethan. I liked Hawk. I liked the flamboyant Miller and the (seemingly) more reserved Katya. My cold, dead heart is ready to be put back together again, though. Please and thank you.
