Why did I love this book?
Renée Carlino writes gorgeous second chance romances and this one is the pinnacle for me. Swear on This Life is the story of Emiline and Jase and how through the most tragic beginning blooms the love of a lifetime. Imagine picking up the latest best-selling novel and discovering your deeply painful childhood on every page. Nothing could be worse, except finding out your childhood best friend and first love wrote it. Renée writes a raw story of resilience that first feels like a gut punch but melts into salve to the soul. I devoured all the words and then regretted it when I had none left to savor. I wish I could read this one again for the first time. Bring the tissues, this one will tear your heart out and sew it back together bigger and brighter than it was before.
