Love, life, and happily ever after? It’s all relative.
Marine biology student Emma Pierce lives in paradise—geographically
When a run-in with Jackson and his rowdy crew goes sour at the bar one night, sparks fly and irreversible damage is done. It’s no secret that Jackson loves to get underneath her skin, but this time he’s gone too far. Now all he wants is to earn her forgiveness before she’s gone for good, but their ideas of closure—and the future—are enough to keep them worlds apart.
Love and Relativity by Rachael Wade is one of those books that stay with you long after you’ve completed that last page. The depth of the loss/tragedy coupled with the beautiful love Emma and Jackson share for one another is something that makes you sit back and reflect.
A few years ago a friend introduced me to Brandi Carlile and I must say I’ve been hooked ever since! I knew this book would be EPIC after reading the author’s note in which she states, this story was inspired by one of my favorite Brandi Carlile songs! The author recommends listening to the song “The Story” before reading and this book is as amazing as the song!
I love love love Love and Relativity. I could not put it down. The dynamic between Emma and Jackson is intense and their relationship isn’t an easy one. They have a lot of bumps along the way, but the most undeniable thing is their love for one another! These two drive each other to the brink of madness at times, but it is so blatantly obvious how deeply they care for one another.
Emma wants to be a marine biologist but she’s stuck in her small hometown at community college. She has applied to a school as far away from Sanibel Island, FL as possible in Washington state, but things are changing in her life and the dreams she built may be changing but can she hold on to both her dream job and a budding romance? Jackson’s been through a lot in his life and Emma never imagined the depth of his character. Sure they joke around with one another at their local watering hole, but they’ve been friends…their relationship is complex, but one thing is for sure Jackson loves the hell out of Emma and Emma hesitantly feels the same. Jackson will make you swoon and a minute later you’ll be absolutely infuriated with him…all in the same chapter! Can these two find a way to find happiness together or will the road blocks be too much for them to handle?
This book is a story about love, tragedy and all the complications life can throw your way. It’s a story that shows how complex life can get the minute you think you may have it all together, the minute you think you’ve found a shred of happiness. It also shows how life changing a love like theirs can be. I love how the author takes time to share their stories in a way that gave each character a bit of depth. It makes you understand a lot of their choices.I love this book! I recommend it to EVERYONE!
Now, go forth and read…seriously, go now.
