First Comes Love, #3
"How do you make a person your final destination?"
The last book broke my heart. Seriously. And I wonder how can these two people who are obviously so in love with each other can’t be together? I’m on the third book, I’m crossing my fingers, because I can’t be sure if they two will end up together, or they will go separate ways by the end of the novel – because the second book, I ended up with a bad case of heart ache and have left some dull pain at the pit of my stomach.
Maybe that’s why despite all those emotions evoked by the second book in the series, I felt compelled on reading this – deep in my heart, I’m still pinning for these two stubborn characters. I still have huge hopes that they will come into their senses, just settle (for the love of god), and be together. Fate had brought them back together every now and then, can one of them take a hint?!
Gray Thomas had let her go, Dylan was not your ordinary kind of girl. You will love her immensely and you can hate her just as much. She has this optimism that can brighten up dark days, and the energy not to stay put in one place. She didn’t know where the wind would take her, but she knows that one day, she will marry Gray. And I’m hoping that with her type of personality and optimism, it will happen.
After fifteen months, fate had brought them back together. He didn’t expect it, she didn’t expect it. They were once again thrown into each other’s path – and once again, one heck of a road trip began.
Gray tried his best to save himself from any future disasters of the heart…
"I can’t let myself remember. I can’t let myself want her. She is the one thing I can never have. I look up at the door she’s about to walk through. I gave you up. I realized I wasn’t born to love you. I was born to lose you. You are my sad song. My melancholy mix. My regrets, my what ifs. You are my past until you suddenly crashed into my present. But you will never be my future."
But as usual, Dylan was the only girl who can get through his walls and his façade. He was the girl that can make him do crazy things, make him smile and yes, make him cry.
She broke your heart and then you broke hers.
Dylan loves him, and she knew he still loved her. But first, she must break the walls that he built around his heart, and restore the heart she broke in the process. He was the only person who knows her, her passion, and what she really wants in life. She had travelled far and wide, met new and different kind of people but there was only one person whom she fell in love with, and her heart would only belong to Gray. They may not always have the perfect timing, and sometimes things would break them apart, but then fate would just led them back into each other’s arms. Seeing him again, with someone new in his life – her heart bled, and she’s wondering if there was a possibility they can start anew, or did her zest in life threw away the best possible thing that could ever happen to her?
For Gray and Dylan being together is always an adventure. You can never know the ending, you can’t predict what is going to happen. Maybe that what makes this series very interesting – you can never expect anything. Every page, every chapter, every moment will surprise you. You will either swoon with delight or your hearts will just tear apart. I loved some moments, hated some of it – but fell in love with the whole series. This was something different, something new for me, and I have embraced these two amazing characters that have imprinted themselves inside my heart.
The ending? It was so Dylan. It was so Gray. It was so them. I completely loved it, and completely believed that after they have been through, there was no other road to take, but the road to their ultimate happy ending.
