Book Review: Truly, Madly, Deeply, You by Cecilia Robert

Synopsis: Four days before Valentine’s Day, Liese Hansfeld is determined to shut the door to her house, as well as her heart, for her annual four days of mourning her one true love. Little does she know her best friend Freytag Meier is just as determined to keep her from her ritual. He’s ready to pick the lock to her apartment door and camp in her living room if that’s what it takes.

What Freytag isn’t prepared for is the surge of deep-rooted emotions he feels for Liese, but two things stand in his way: the grief and guilt she still clutches close to her heart, and a man who threatens to snatch Liese from under Frey’s watchful eye. Frey is determined to distract her into forgetting her pain. But is that enough to ease her grief, or help her see he can be more than her best friend?

Review: This is a novella so I can't write too much without giving everything away. Liese is still in grief over a lost love, and Frey is not going to stand by another year letting her lock herself off from the world. This book kept me very invested into the characters. I really liked them, and wanted them to be happy more than anything. There was some real heartbreaking moments.

Character Breakdown:
Frey: He is a super sweet guy, who cares so much about Liese. Any girl would be lucky to have him. He picks her up when she is truly down.

Liese: She is still getting over the loss of someone, and needs someone to kick her butt into gear. She can't mourn forever.

I suggest this book to anyone who wants a quick and romantic read. She is in the middle of writing the second novella in the series. She had to put it on hold to finish Reaper's Novice, but now she is back to the second book. I can't wait to read it.

FTC: I got this book from the author for an honest review.
