Choices. Everyone makes them. From mundane to unimaginable, one choice can change the trajectory of your entire life.
My mother’s choice was to abandon us with our abusive father.
My brother’s choice was to go to prison for killing the boy who assaulted his soulmate.
Camden Cole’s choice was to fall in love with a shattered girl who had absolutely nothing to offer him but heartbreak.
It was one summer beneath the trees, but with Camden, I had a place where I belonged. A friend who was always waiting for me.
A boy who I caught staring at me more often than not.
He was mine, but when the world closed in and secrets exploded all around us, it was my choice to let him go.
Choices. Everyone makes them.
But mine would ruin us all.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
I don't know if I need a hug, a drink or a hug after finishing Reclaim. Probably both after the emotional ride Aly Martinez took me on. Here is your mini spoiler...this book gets heavy and raw and dark and will drop kick you right in the chest- more than once.
I loved Nora and Camden's story. How it changed from sweet, youthful friendship to feelings that were too big for them to understand at such a young age. How time and life and circumstance couldn't break the tethers of their bond. How their love endured even with all the odds stacked against them. And there was A LOT trying to keep them apart.
I can't even put into words how my heart ached while reading Reclaim. The angst. The push and pull. The pain. The longing. My heart was in my throat the final third of the book as things with Caskey played out. That man is legit the worst. I hated what he was doing but at the same time it was his uncouth antics that brought Nora and Camden together yet again. Nora and Camden's emotional journey put me through the wringer. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more, I sighed in relief, I cried again, I raged. But that ending...my goodness, all that joy and love was made that much sweeter for all they had endured.
