Four hundred five billion stars for my boo Lots and Sam!!!

Lotte has been in love with her brother-in-law’s best friend, Sam for most of her life. This unrequited love is one of the many secrets she keeps, secrets that define her and haunt her. She always knew that her love would go unfulfilled until one night which gave her hope. But this hope was short lived that her heart broke all over again.

Sam can’t reveal the depth of his feelings for Lotte. Keeping the fact aside that she is his best mate’s sister, Sam knows Lotte deserves someone who is much better than him, someone who has less secrets and is less broken.

But love always finds a way and for Lotte and Sam the way isn’t easy because the sound of their secrets is too loud to ignore.

I AM IN LOVE, Y’ALL!!! With Samson, with Lotte and with their broken, amazing, beautiful souls.

I cannot even begin to form proper words about this story because nothing can do it justice. I adore Whitney Barbetti’s writing with an intensity that is probably unhealthy. Do I care? Nope. Will I try to fix it? That’ll also be a big NOPE.

Lotte, my sweet summer child!!! I love this woman. She is broken and hurt but damn if it stops her from taking risks with her heart or in life. She is just a lone soul trying to find her way in life and her journey is ABSOLUTELY FUCKING BEAUTIFUL. I want Lots to be my bff so she and I can go on adventures and make fool out of ourselves.

Samson is my boo thang because WHAT MAN IS THAT AMAZING??? This poor man has all the weight of the World on his shoulders but he never complained. I am so happy that Whitney created a character like Sam’s. He is not perfect but he is kind, passionate and so so pure.

I can’t say it enough but Whitney is so beyond amazing, her stories always leave me breathless and contemplating the meaning of life. One day, I am going to sit down and devour every story she has written and then I am going to read them all over again.

5 Stars!

I’ve been in love with him forever.

But to him, I’ve always been off-limits. Until the night that changed everything.

Maybe it was the alcohol. Maybe it was the secrets we shared. Maybe he finally opened his eyes and saw me.

By the time the sun rose, I’d lost him again, my heart shattering on his parting words: “It was a mistake.” So I ran. Ran until I was thousands of miles away, in a country I didn’t know, surrounded by people who only made me miss him more.

I never expected him to follow me … or to pry more secrets from my soul. In exchange, he gave me more of his secrets too.

The more he let me into his heart, the more I loved him, but I’m afraid that some secrets may be too big to overcome.
