🌺 𝐀𝐑𝐂 π‘π„π•πˆπ„π– 🌺 The Lovely Return by Carian Cole (π‘π€π“πˆππ†) ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️


What if death doesn’t do you part?

They say be careful what you wish for. But on December 5, Alex Fox makes a wish in the midst of a devastating tragedy. Little does he know that his wish will come true.

Six years after that fateful day, a little girl wanders into Alex’s studio. With her quirky personality, endless questions, and adorable smile, Penny Rose becomes an enchanting yet bittersweet distraction. Penny Rose is an odd girl—at least, that’s what her parents say. Penny herself doesn’t feel particularly odd; she simply feels misplaced. As if somehow, in some way, she is living in the wrong place 
in the wrong life.

As the years pass, Alex and Penny develop a friendship. But it becomes harder and harder for them to ignore their undeniable chemistry, no matter how off limits it is. Alex believes he’ll never find love again, let alone fall for a girl half his age. But Penny is everything he could ever want or need. Not only is she caring, witty, and beautiful, but she accepts the past that haunts him.

Penny couldn’t be happier. She’s been head over heels for sexy, brooding artist Alex Fox since she was six years old. But when her childhood dreams start resurfacing again—dreams of a life with Alex way before they ever met—she starts to think they’re not dreams at all.

They’re memories.

Penny’s revelation to Alex threatens to tear them apart, making them question the impossible and unbelievable. Can love truly transcend time and death, giving them a second chance at their happily ever after? Or is Penny battling a broken mind that has led her down a path of heartbreaking delusion?
My Review

𝐓𝐇𝐄 π‹πŽπ•π„π‹π˜ 𝐑𝐄𝐓𝐔𝐑𝐍
 Is a full length age gap romance book by Carian Cole. Spoken in 'dual perspectives.

As soon as this landed on my kindle, it was game over, life was put on hold, I even took a work day sicky so I could stay in this world the author had created, I never wanted to leave it, trying to slow my reading down did not help one bit, the end result was still the same, the end..

Closing that last page was the perfect ending to a perfectly worded book. I don't normally gravitate towards age gap romances until I saw this author taking that leap and I was all over it, stalked it months on end, this was one read I'd highly anticipated and she didn't let me down once. So that wait was worth it in the end.

🌺 A slow burn
🌺 Age gap
🌺 He waits 22 years for her!
🌺 Angsty
🌺 Small town
🌺 Plot twists
🌺 Reincarnation

This author definitely knows how to work those slow burns, this went off with a bang and a gasp in the beginning, where the world crashed down, then when a six wee old started incorporating herself into Alex's life captured my heart, this was so unique, and beautifully written my words alone can not describe everything this author threw of herself into this book.

And here I sit trying to convey it into my review and god where to even start, every which way I want to write up this review divulges spoilers, I will say that this is one of my top reads of 2023! Saying I loved this book is an understatement!

Go into this book blind, get wrapped up in the feels like a favourite blanket cocooning you, this put me through the wringer, it made me πŸ˜­πŸ• like a baby! But slowly it also put me back together!
