To Whom it May Concern,
It was easy to call us forbidden and harder to call us soulmates. Yet I believed we were both. Forbidden soulmates.
When I arrived to Edgewood, Wisconsin I didn’t plan to find him. I didn't plan to stumble into Joe's bar and have Daniel's music stir up my emotions. I had no clue that his voice would make my hurts forget their own sorrow. I had no idea that my happiness would remember its own bliss.
When I started senior year at my new school, I wasn’t prepared to call him Mr. Daniels, but sometimes life happens at the wrong time for all the right reasons.
Our love story wasn’t only about the physical connection.
It was about family. It was about loss. It was about being alive. It was silly. It was painful. It was mourning. It was laughter.
It was ours.
And for those reasons alone, I would never apologize for Loving Mr. Daniels.
Book Review: 4 Stars
Okay, so. My rating here is all over the place. Even though I’m writing this review now, I have honestly no idea yet how to rate the book So I’ll simply split up my ratings:
- Plot: Ranges from 1 star to 5
- Writing: 5+ stars
- Characters: 5 stars. Or minus 4,567. Most of all one person, how could you??? *cries*
- Heartbreak: Don’t ask…
- Ending: 4 stars
Don’t get me wrong, this book was beautiful, the writing is… I don’t have the adequate words to describe how amazing Brittany C. Cherry’s writing is. The romance between the two MC’s is so tender and heartwarming. But therein lies my problem: The author broke my heart so badly with all the sad things happening (present and past) in this story that it’s like trying to mend a vase back together. If it’s shattered in pieces too small to reconcile, you can try all you want – you won’t succeed in rebuilding it. Or at least too many important pieces would be missing inevitably. That’s how I felt while reading this book. It was a constant battle between swooning and crying and I guess the crying won in the end. I’m all for a good sob-story. But this was too much. Sorry to say this, I can definitely see the beautiful parts and how addictive they are. But are they really worth suffering through so much heartbreak? Mh, not so sure.
For the forbidden element of the book. I have to say that it was definitely heartpoundingly good written but never creepy. All the characters are over 18 and the age difference is almost nonexistent, so no issues there. I’d say the only hard-limit was the emotional overload I experienced.
I for myself can definitely say that I’m glad I gave this book a chance, it was an experience I’m glad I made. But I will probably never read it again in my life. And maybe after that being said, you wonder why I rated this book with 4 stars after all – but honestly, a story that can make me feel so much has earned nothing less.
All in all, I rate “Loving Mr. Daniels” with 4 heartbroken stars and can’t recommend it to anyone, really. Or maybe I should, I have no idea if it has that big of an emotional impact on everyone else like it hand on me. Gah, just go ahead and try it for yourselves if you can handle heartbreak. Or you think you can…
