Sadie loses her husband in a horrible night. Two years later and she still can't deal with the loss. She is angry, bitter, depressed. She keeps lashing out to the people who care for her the most.
Then, her family decides that maybe getting her to meet the organ recipients who benefit from her husband's death could help her heal.
She hates the idea but in the end, she agrees to meet three. One of them is Alexander McBride. From the moment they meet she feels something for Zander which she tries to deny. She feels guilty about thinking about him but she also feels like maybe he can be the one to make her feel alive again.
Zander doesn't feel he deserves the heart he carries now and he doesn't think he should be attracted to the widow who is still hurting from her loss but he can't seem to say no to his heart.
This is a story of healing with the loss of your soulmate and maybe having a second chance at love.
Sadie was very bitter, she was awful to her family at the beginning of the book and only with Zander's help, she starts becoming the person she used to be. I don't even want to think about what she went through.
Zander was strong, determined but was vulnerable too. He had treated this new heart in the best possible way he could, changing his lifestyle completely. I was rooting for Zander to break down Sadie's walls because he deserved to be loved too.
I almost felt like maybe Jake was helping them find each other.
Sadie's mom also won my heart, her behavior with Zander was just what he needed.
"The connection I feel to this woman was so instant. I’ve never felt anything like it. Something about her, about me, about the situation that we find ourselves in—if I believed in fate, I’d say that’s exactly what it is. If fate exists, if it’s real, I would say that somehow our journeys are the same."
