This is my first Suki Fleet book, and after reading all of the raving reviews on some of her other works, I knew I had to give it a shot.

When I first started reading this one, I fell in love. Fleet’s writing so so poetic and I could’ve pulled a million and a half quotes to prove it, but I was rather caught up in finishing the story and figuring out what was going to happen to Sam (who, of course, I’d already let into my heart).

Lay me down where the wildflowers grow and my heart will find its home.

Xavi wasn’t my favorite character. Not because of anything in particular, but I found myself struggling to connect with him.

And I hate that I wrote him a letter. He had my heart, and I wrote him a letter to say good-bye.

He made a lot of wrong decisions, which I think is why this book reads similar to a coming of age story (some of my favorite books to read). I had a huge problem with the fact that he up and left his job and his apartment and all of his belongings for this boy that he walked away from so many years ago. I don’t know, his character just irked me…

I read 3/4 of this one in one sitting and after taking a short break I found myself struggling to finish it. I was about to give up and DNF it but for some reason I kept it on my “currently reading” list and several weeks later I finally sat down and read the last few pages. It was somewhat of a relief to finish reading it (nobody likes to DNF a book anyway).

I’ll keep an eye out for other Suki Fleet books. I might give another one a shot, but this book just wasn’t for me.
