Eight Goodbyes

When Tessa Talman meets Simon Fremont for the first time, not only is she attracted to him, she’s intrigued by how different their lives are. He’s a dedicated scientist, practical, pragmatic, and grounded—while she’s a head-in-the-clouds romance author. As their relationship grows, they agree to meet in places around the world, while continuing to live on opposite sides of the globe.

Though their feelings for each other deepen, their priorities remain the same. Simon is in a hurry to be financially sound and settle down, but Tessa is enjoying her freedom and newfound success. Neither is willing to give in, but as each goodbye gets harder, Tessa begins to wonder whether fame is the path to happiness, or if she has everything she needs in Simon.

Just as Tessa finds the courage to go after her own happily ever after, the unthinkable happens, separating them in ways they never imagined.

To move forward, she must let go of the past, and determine once and for all if love is truly more powerful than the pain of goodbye.

My Review

This book is what romance and true love is all about. From the first page to the last page, I was in for the long haul. Tessa and Simon oozed passion, romance, heartache, and true love. With each passing goodbye; my heart broke a little bit more as well.

I loved that Simon would meet Tessa across the world to be with her. Even if it was just for a few days. I could feel the love grow deeper and deeper with each goodbye. Tessa found her love interest and hero from her romance books in Simon. Both of them broke out of their shells and experienced "life" when they were around each other. When tragedy struck, I almost cried out in anguish.

If you are looking for an amazing book to read, than, look no further than this book. This book will stick with you long after you have finished it.
