Our thoughts...

I absolutely loved this book. I've loved the whole series, so far. I continue to think about these characters. They’re everywhere. Not a day goes by, that I’m not reminded of them. I want them in my life.

Losing her picks up right where Becoming His ends, however, not everything was happening the way it appeared, following David’s death. The effect David’s death has on everyone’s life is far reaching. Not just the Bosse Family. David was just as much of a father figure/friend to Max as he was to his own children. When David died, it crushed Ace to the point that she wasn't able to function. She felt overwhelmed. She didn't know what to do, what people expected of her. So Ace did what Ace does best. She ran.

We follow Max on his journey of recovering after the loss of a friend and father figure, as well as his soul mate. Luckily for Max he has the support of his friends and family during this difficult time. I feel that the only thing that gave Max any comfort is the letter that David had written for him. What that letter says we really don’t know, other than to let her go. That broke my heart. I may have tossed my kindle and sent a not very nice message to Mariah!

We do get to look back on happy memories with Ace from Max’s POV. I loved that, seeing how he saw her and her family, it warmed my heart. Most of the situations are new, some we just getting a different perspective. My heart hurt for Max while reading this. You could feel all of his love for Ace, his anger over her leaving and his frustration for not being able to fully let her go. I loved that. I liked being in Max’s head, as crazy and heartbreaking as it was.

I think the hardest part for me was that they found people who made them happy. Seeing Ace laugh and smile and it not being directed at Max, crushed me. Max moving on so quickly, I understand he was trying to dull his broken heart. He did it in typical Max fashion, if you love Max, like I do, you will know what I mean.

Here’s the BIG question: If you are soul mates, does time apart weaken that connection? Make it stronger? Can you really move on? 

I laughed, cried and many breakdowns with this book. I love Ace and I love Max. I can’t wait for Book three. 
Read it!
