    A wonderful story where an attempted suicide brings two people together and gives them a reason to live 3What the book is aboutNow, I won t tell you much about the story itself, because you really need to go into this blind DI did it, and it was so great not knowing what to expect DThe most important facts you need to know is that the MCs meet while trying to drown themselves in the sea They help each other out, survive, and form a strong bond of trust, where one helps the other find a reason to live.It is a wonderful and heartbreaking story, sexy as hell and incredibly funny at times DEven though it starts with a suicide attempt, I have to say, that was one of the funniest and at the same time incredibly heartbreaking suicide scene ever So even though there are tough times here, it isn t a terribly depressing book Kate and CharlieCharlie is a megastar singer actor whose fame and lifestyle push him to the edge He feels responsible for the death of his brother and can t get over it.Kate is an ordinary girl, with plenty of bad luck in life After a few abusive relationships, she finally meets someone who is good to her, only for their relationship to crash terribly because it was all a scam.Fed up with their lives, they try to kill themselves, but end up being each other s anchor in life They start a relationship and open up to one another, with the good and the bad, and I just can t say how much I loved reading it What I loved most in this bookThey are both so REAL Their lives aren t sugar coated, the fame thing isn t portrayed as something so awesome where the guy is the embodiment of perfection, and her life is one that s believable, because those things do happen, a lot of women suffer abuse of some kind in their lives A bit of spoilers ahead, but I just have to mention this view spoiler Charlie does drugs He has sex with groupies and the latest scandal that got him to the edge involved an underage girl who overdosed.Now this doesn t sound pretty, especially for the main guy, but for me, it really added the dose of real to it The world of fame is that way, and I bet even worse things happen hide spoiler

    4,5 stars I love you because I can be honest with you I trust you I love you because you ve made me see I m than I thought I love you because you ve made me real I didn t expect this book to be so emotional The story is about famous former singer, now actor Charlie and Kate, a waitress They meet in rather unusual circumstances and form this extraordinary bond He is spoiled and destroyed by the life of celebrity he has led She had a horrible childhood and generally not an easy life And meeting each other is their blessing From lust to love, their love story is full of heartbreak, pain and drama, but also full of devotion, learning how to trust each other and hot sex and smart humor.I really loved this one, writing is brilliant, characters wonderfully done and the story original It also pulls out so many emotions, from laugh to sadness, from anger to happiness, compassion, excitement Long story short, very good book

    I ve read many books with suicidal characters, but usually only one of the protagonists is depressed while the other one helps the former heal Strangers is the first book I ve read where both the main characters are suicidal and it proves that two self destructive individuals can rarely, if ever, have a healthy and healing relationship Charlie s a mega star with a drug, alcohol, and sex addiction whereas Kate s a waitress with low self esteem, little to no self respect at least where Charlie s concerned , and no note worthy people reading skills even after everything she has been through I was than a little curious about how Elsborg would pull off a relationship between these two, but I m actually very disappointed with the way things played out If only Elsborg had taken a few chapters in the beginning to get the reader better acquainted with Charlie and Kate as independent adults before having them fall instantly in lust love, I m pretty sure I would have enjoyed the story a lot .My main concern is how abusive their relationship felt Charlie physically hurt Kate twice in his anger which is the exact number of times he got that mad The first time, view spoiler he about raped the poor girl hide spoiler

    A MAZ ING I loved this book It was not at all what I thought it was going to be, it was soooo much better This is one of those books that grabs you from the first page and doesn t let go These characters consume your every waking moment From the odd first encounter, until the hand wringing, heart wrenching ending There were times that I had to remind myself to breathe The author takes a very serious situation, suicide, and actually puts a little humorous spin on it I can t imagine that it could ever be funny, but the way these two meet, had me smiling It s at this moment that Kate and Charlie, thinking they have nothing to live for, suddenly realize the need to save each other, and just maybe, they have everything to live for The book is chocked full of sex scenes, but yet they felt like so much You can truly feel the desire Kate and Charlie have for each other, and that this connection is bringing them back from the brink As they fall in love with each otheryou ll fall in love with them Kate and Charlie have a little piece of my heart.

    4 Stars I really enjoyed this book.When I began reading, I admit that at first I wasn t really interested as I thought it was a bit over the top of a coincidence but as I carried on reading I completely understood it.Two broken people who want to end their lives because they are so unhappy, Kate and Charlie meet by strange coincidence both trying to kill themselves by drowning at sea but maybe it was a sign he thought Kate was a mermaid I found that so cute KateKate has no idea that Charlie is a famous singer movie star because she lives a simple life with no tv radio etc.Famous CharlieAfter the night on the beach, they go back to Greenwhich at Kate s house and one thing leads to another and they find themselves in this bubble.Having steamy sex and revealing their lives to each other Oh God I want to come all over you I want to fuck your navel, fuck your breasts, fuck your sweet mouth I want to shoot my cum all over your belly I want to rub it into your skin I want you to taste me I want to taste you Kate learns who Charlie is but she likes him for himself and not because he is famous.Along the way we learn that both Kate and Charlie are damaged in different ways and finding each other makes them strong They are the glue that hold each other together.Kate has secrets and so does Charlie.Offcourse they cannot live in a bubble forever.Charlie is famous and Kate is a waitress.They go through trying to be together while the outside world tries to break them apart She was frightened Allowing herself to love meant giving someone the power to hurt her And Kate had been hurt so many times, because people always let her down They said they loved her and then they left her Or hit her Or threw her out Or walked out Or died So it was better not to fall in love Better and safer Only it was too late Too late for Kate, anyway People fell in love with Charlie all the time She was one in a long line It wouldn t last Their conversations were really funny I loved how they spoke to each other Kate was real she didn t say things to make Charlie feel better she said what was the truth Kate met Charlie s family..Bad things happen to both of them but the truth will always come out and Charlie and Kate will feel the love which they both desire so much and the place where it all began is the place that it ends And although I love fucking you, it s far than that I love you because I can be honest with you I trust you I love you because you ve made me see I m than I thought I love you because you ve made me real I m trying to ignore the fact that my dick gets excited when I even think your name I noted that this book has a lot of similarities to Love Unscripted Rehearsed and The Unidentified Redhead series so if you liked those than you will love this

    4.5 sSo, we have a book that starts off with two people trying to commit suicide by drowning, that is, until they literally crash into each otherwell, that doesn t like much of a romance novel does it Butwait, just pull your big girl panties up and hang on because this book is one wild rollercoaster ride of emotions that will leave you wanting And make sure you have the day free because you will get pulled under the spell of Hippo Mermaid.If you are like me and an emotional book junkie, this book is perfect for youeven though I must admit some parts are a bit over the top and dramatic Butit is a story and for the most part, it will make you hurt sooo good The angst is almost overwhelming but I didn t want it to stop The problem was I couldn t quit reading and before I knew it, It Was Over Kate has some problems but she s spent most of her life keeping them bottled up inside No one really knows the real her but she feels a strong connection with Charlie from the beginning We slowly get to find out bits and pieces of what has happened to her and what a train wreck her life has been How can one person go through so much and still function I felt much worse for her than Charlie But somehow she endeared herself to me and I especially loved her bed and the reasonings behind it and how she made such cute bras and panties Charlie is someone who has gotten everything he has ever wantedand , so he lives in excess Excessive drugs, excessive alcohol and excessive womenand whatever else he fancies and everyone wants him or at least a piece of him And just like Kate, we slowly find out about him and what s happened in his life and what s been missing Once Kate realizes who Charlie is she knows this will not last so she decides to take life by the reigns and do what she wants Enter the love s almost as if Charlie has given up all his other addiction for his addiction to Kate and having sex with her There are some hot scenes.and some interesting scenes, some scenes that push the comfort zone and I have to admit I was a bit surprise by Kate but totally supportive Then enters real lifeCharlie has to go to work and that includes social functions Problem 1 that bothered me is that he wasn t exactly forthcoming about what he was doing and it was hard reading about Kate finding out from the papers and then not hearing from Charlie Geezthe anxiety Next, he actually has her met him at a club where he basically ignores her until he can t stand his jealousy over other guys talking and being with her Again, that didn t pertain to him having his arm around another woman in front of Kate Butthe whole celebrity thing made sense especially with all the paparazzi.Luckily, Kate has some good friendsshe just doesn t really realize that they are there for her even when they kind of get caught up with the celebrity thing too But it was great seeing Kate s walls come down and how she let herself enjoy life and what it has to offer Of course, there are some oh so not nice people Problem 2 was with one particular personhow could Charlie not notice this was going on and that things weren t adding up Especially when they both noticed the undergarments This person caused so many problems, it wasn t even funny Problem 3 was with Charlie himself and seeing his ugly side The first part was after they left his parent s house and were at the car parkthat was a bit surprising from him and sort of surprising that Kate would be so accepting especially after what she had been through The next part was after the article came outI get that he was hurt and worried but he said some horrible things and the way he acted Ughhhmy heart went out to Kate Then, of course, was the hotelluckily, things could have been much worse Don t get me wrongeven though I have these concerns, I loved all the emotional drama And with all the lows comes all the highsthe sweet, romantic, lovable parts are just oh sooo good and they definitely make up for any problems LOVED the post it notes and the star necklaceand the song I loved that there was an epilogue, I only wish that we had a bit between the last chapter and the epilogue More of that part that I can t tell you about But the epilogue was fantastic and I loved where it ended.with HELLO.Good newsthis book is a standalone and if you love The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred or God Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo, this has a very similar feel And it does bear mentioning that the author is British so there is a lot of British terminology It s not too hard to figure out most things Favorite quotes If you re my reward for all the bad things that have happened to me, then what am I for you Kate asked My angel I want you so much I m scared, he whispered I m scared I want you so much, Kate whispered back And although I love f cking you, it s far than that I love you because I can be honest with you I trust you I love you because you ve made me see I m than I thought I love you because you ve made me real I m trying to ignore the fact that my dick gets excited when I even think your name He kissed the end of her nose and then pulled back Do you love me Yes, I love you She ran a finger along his lips You re my other path, Charlie Of course I love you I need you so much, he whispered You re the beat of my heart, the air in my lungs You make me feel safe I don t want to live without you I want to spend my life making you happy I want us to grow old together and when we die, I want us to die in each other s arms, because I can t live in a world without you by my side.
