⊱✿⊰ KAT'S REVIEW ⊱✿⊰ ARC ⊱✿⊰ Love My Way by Kate Sterritt

Love My Way by Kate Sterritt
TITLE: Love My Way
AUTHOR: Kate Sterritt
GENRE: Romance
RELEASE DATE: May 31st 2017
Even without seeing her face, I know that the woman standing at the water’s edge is desperately sad. Her back is to me and her shoulders are slumped, perhaps heavy with regret. It kills me to know I am partly to blame, and for that reason alone, it’s impossible to look at her. Leaning against the rough trunk of the tree, I close my eyes. My life will forever begin and end with her, and I’m unable to witness her heart breaking. 

Standing still is no longer an option, so I begin to pace. Is she still waiting for him or has he already left? Fear pools in my veins at the uncertainty. Above all else, I want her to be happy. If this is too hard, I’ll have to walk away again. I let out a long breath, frustrated by the whole situation. 

Emerson Hart is the love of my life. Unfortunately, I’m not the only love of hers. And therein lies the problem.

LOVE MY WAY: Is a standalone romance novel by Kate Sterritt and is a new to me author but definitely won’t be the last. Set up in two parts, First we’re in the ‘Present’ then as memories assault her we’re thrown into the past ‘Ten year old Emerson’ 

What drew me to this first was the cover it definitely caught my eye, it’s gorgeous, then the synopsis hooked me more into wanting to read this and I know by that, that it’s setting me up for some sort of an emotional ride.

We start off in Present time we meet Emerson who has recently been employed at ‘Carries Cupcakes’ slowly chapter by chapter we see her slowly coming back to life again. 

Then it swiftly jumps to the past as she reminisces (Emerson at Ten Years Old) about the boy who understood her more than she understood herself. He was just a boy who became her best friend He is, always has been, and always will be, my everything. and she was just a girl who wanted to be as free as a feather floating away on the air, a young girl focused on art, who one day wanted to be a famous artist. She created designs out of river stones ranging in size and colour. A story without words 

Age Seventeen: Slowly their friendship becomes blurred as they fought their attraction. He was my compass and, with him by my side, I would never be lost again.

➽ I placed my hand on the page and imagined the feathers flying in the breeze, floating over the markets, over the town, and up into the blue skies, blurred white by the wispy clouds above.

➽ “For a minute or a lifetime, some people try to clip your wings, while others help you learn to fly.." 

Fuck me sideways and then back again, going by the synopsis I was prepared to get pulled into a love triangle, and throughout the book I really thought that's what was going to come at me, but believe me when I say there is no cheating of any sorts in this book, that's the only thing I'm going to say because I don't want to wreck it for readers after me.

Being honest I was set at rating this 4 stars and I was happy with that rating, but then I'm coming up to the finish in this book and my world just crumbled down around my ears and I'm thrown head first into an emotional, gut wrenching, heart stopping journey that I seriously did not see coming. 
Reading through blurry eyes was hard, the chant through my head was like a broken record 'do not cry, do not cry, do not cry' to no avail drip after drip cascaded down my face.

➽ Let's make a pact to come back here on this sunset every five years, no matter what. 

How often do we have soul mates come into our lives? Emerson is one of the lucky ones, though she doesn't see it like that, you see she's had two soul mates come into her life, but to keep one she has to say goodbye to the other. A heartfelt journey, a new beginning, a journey of self discovery.
