Lost on the Way by Isabel Jolie

I was very surprised by the book to say the least. It's a heartwarmingly beautiful story, that pulls at your heartstrings. I was crying so much. :) I just wanted them to be happy and together... :)


So Jason and Maggie meat at college, her boyfriend was Jason friend. And when he dies they leaned on each other and were best friends ever since.


Only the way the love each other, the way the yspend time together and how they are, it's way more than just a friendship.


After one drunken night, when they finally end up together, it brings up all the issues. She is sure he doesn't like her that way and he wants to keep her at arms distance, because he doesn't want to hurt her. It takes time and some pretty drastic move, for them to finally see that they are perfect for each other.


It's such an awesome story, I couldn't put it down, till the last page...


And it felt very real reading it. The way Jason dealt or more appropriately didn't deal with all that he felt, the notion to keep people you love at distance, and at the same time desperately needing them, it him very close to home, to say the least. :)

synopsis

They were friends—just friends. Now they’re something else entirely…

Jason
Maggie was my best friend’s girl. When he died… I don’t have the words. Indescribable pain.
But we healed. Together. She got me through my illness and became my friend, my confidant, my family. She’s everything to me.
And I ruined it all last night.
One drunken night. That’s all it took. Now I’m lost.
I want her with everything I am, everything I have, but she can’t be mine. She deserves someone with better odds than the doctors gave me.
Now, if I can’t figure out how to go back to the way things were, I’ll lose the most important relationship I have. The only one that truly matters.

Maggie
Last night was the best—and worst—night of my life.
He’s made it clear, more than once, that he only wants a friendship.
Then last night happened.
And now he knows how I feel.
He’s my best friend. I love him —mind, body, and soul. We have a visceral connection others can’t understand.
The problem? He’ll always see me as his best friend’s girlfriend, no matter how many years pass.
I can’t lose him. If he wants to stay in the friend zone, I’ll need to somehow accept that and move on. I know it’s true.
But convincing my heart…well, that’s another story entirely.

One night of excess tequila changes everything for two codependent best friends. Will they lose all they had, or can they find their way to something even better?

happy reading,
anie
