Monday by E.L. Todd
Timeless Teaser #1
Or in soul mates.
But I believe in Hawke.
My life has never been whole since my parents left forever. I have my brother, someone I can barely tolerate most of the time, and I have my best friend, Marie.
And I have myself.
But when Hawke walks into my life, there’s an immediate connection. Our eyes lock and an unspoken conversation is exchanged. For the first time in my life, I actually feel something.
But he doesn’t.
He keeps me at arm’s length and pretends there’s nothing between us when there clearly is. I’m not the kind of girl to wait around for any guy, so I don’t.
But that doesn’t mean he isn’t in the back of my mind.
Our paths cross again in a way neither one of us expect and it changes everything. Was it destiny that made it happen? Was it fate?
Or was it something else?
This book is a slow burn, it took me a while to warm to the characters and settle into the story but once I did I mushed right in like a comfy sofa.
That ending what the actual fuck!!!
Honestly I was struggling with this story towards the end and was really hoping she didn’t just accept Hawkes escalating behaviour. I honestly don’t feel like he was going to be abusive towards her but he obviously has some issues that he needs help with.
For the first time ever I’m glad this book ends with a cliff hanger. That’s possibly the first time a book didn’t end with an immediate hea and I’ve been ok with it.
As a couple I really like Hawke and Frank together I enjoy the burn and passion and even when they fight it’s intense and harsh. But at the end of the day they are obviously in love and perfect for one another.
I enjoyed the friendship part of their relationship too; it was lovely watching them build something that wasn’t entirely based on sex.
I think I get this book, I was doubting but now I think I get it and I’m so intrigued to see where this story goes.
Monday gets 4 stars from me.
