Stephanie and Jamie are meant to be. The problem is they're both with other people...

Stephanie doesn’t believe in fate, true love or living happily ever after. She’s content enough being engaged to Matt. But then she meets Jamie, who understands her more than anyone else ever has.

Jamie is happily married to his childhood sweetheart Helen and believes in everything Stephanie doesn’t. So why does he have such a strong connection with Stephanie?

When Stephanie and Jamie meet one fateful weekend in 2006 it will change everything...

Ten years. Two people. One epic love story.

Wow this was amazing. 

I have literally no idea how to describe this, the blurb has one thing right - it is certainly an epic love story. 

Taking place over 10 years, with chapters from both Stephanie and Jamie's points of views, we see a relationship form between them that is evidently fated, and probably as close to soul mates as you are going to get. 

The connection between the two leads is believable and right from the off you can feel it, and wonder just how everything is going to develop. 

For Stephanie and Jamie are both in their own relationships and one thing they are both adamant about is that they love their partners.  But yet they are drawn to each other deeply and seem to be their true selves around each other. 

They only meet once a year, but we also see what their lives are like outside of their connection.  So we get to know Stephanie and Jamie's partners, their families and friends. 

It may sound like its a book about adultery and somehow it didn't feel like it. It's not sordid, its rather beautiful and after all you can't help you you have a true connection with.  If I ever felt like they did then I would count myself as a lucky person. 

How it this even possible that this is the authors second book, this is so accomplished, superbly written and I was completely enchanted by connection between Stephanie and Jamie.  

I was loving the book and couldn't really put it down much, and then I reach the last section and suddenly just OMG, I can't talk about it, I can't hint at it, I can't give spoilers but if you are looking for a book that will surprise you up until the end,  that has beautiful writing and wonderful sentiment and truly feels like quite a special book then this is the book for you.  I just didn't want it to end. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Ebury for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
