After the loss of his parents, Archer Hart is consumed by grief. Each day, he struggles his way through classes, parties, and trying to put on a good front for the sake of his best friend. But at night, he falls asleep to the sound of gunshots ringing in his ears.
Mallory is a man fighting a war of emotions all his own. When his son invites his best friend back home to Banff over a college break, he’s happy for the company.
Some time during the late-night talks, subtle smiles, and long, long silences, the two men begin to find solace in one another.
But love isn’t always easy, especially when it strikes you straight through the heart.
This book was so heartbreaking and beautiful. I loved it. It was so amazing to see the sweet character that Archer was. I loved him above everything else.
Reading this book was a great experience, it had a lot of sad moments but along with the sorrow there was a lot of hope. It was a bit too slow pace but it work fine considering the emotions portray by the main characters, there were a few moments when it was bothersome but overall I enjoy it.
I loved how the book didn’t try to force the idea that love would conquer everything. They love, but they still struggle with their emotions. They still have a long way to go to overcome grief, but it seem easier by the side of a beloved one. Mallory and Archer’s relationship felt realistic. The age gap was something I generally wouldn’t feel that much comfortable with, but I didn’t find any problem with it, they were just two people in love and so perfect for each other. I just wanted them to be happy, it feel like they deserve it.
It was a great book, there were very few things that I didn’t liked, among them sometimes the pace, and sometimes too Danny’s attitude. None of them important enough to make me like it any less.
