Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren
The story of the heart can never be unwritten.
Macy Sorensen is settling into an ambitious if emotionally tepid routine: work hard as a new pediatrics resident, plan her wedding to an older, financially secure man, keep her head down and heart tucked away.
But when she runs into Elliot Petropoulos—the first and only love of her life—the careful bubble she’s constructed begins to dissolve. Once upon a time, Elliot was Macy’s entire world—growing from her gangly bookish friend into the man who coaxed her heart open again after the loss of her mother…only to break it on the very night he declared his love for her.
Told in alternating timelines between Then and Now, teenage Elliot and Macy grow from friends to much more—spending weekends and lazy summers together in a house outside of San Francisco devouring books, sharing favorite words, and talking through their growing pains and triumphs. As adults, they have become strangers to one another until their chance reunion. Although their memories are obscured by the agony of what happened that night so many years ago, Elliot will come to understand the truth behind Macy’s decade-long silence, and will have to overcome the past and himself to revive her faith in the possibility of an all-consuming love.
5 absolutely Beautiful Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I loved loved loved every single word of this book…. Christina Lauren absolutely hit a homerun with this book…. A book I couldn’t put down filled with characters I absolutely adored and was rooting for….
This is a second chance love story….Elliot and Macy were one another’s first love…. The story is told in alternating time periods between their teenage years and 11 years later when they are reunited…. Macy and Elliot started out as friends bonding over a love of books and words…. Their friends to lovers story develops so sweetly and slowly and perfectly…. I just could not possibly figure out what could have torn these two apart….
11 years later and Macy and Elliot run into each other at a coffee shop…. The connection is still there, but are Macy’s walls too high and too thick to be broken down? What happened to break these two up in the first place? What tragedy and secret has been haunting Macey for all these years? Well you’re going to need to read this book to find out! And I strongly encourage you to do so….. this book has all the feels and leaves you with a huge smile on your face….
Trust me my non romance loving friends even you will be entranced by this book…. and your eyes will not roll I promise…. it is almost impossible not to fall in love with Elliot and Macy and this remarkable love story….
