Book Description:

From the million-copy bestseller Amanda Prowse, the queen of heartbreak fiction.

Amanda Prowse is the author of The Coordinates Of Loss and the no.1 bestsellers Perfect DaughterMy Husband’s Wife and What Have I Done?

This is an unforgettable romance about what happens when two very different people fall in love.

Theo Montgomery grew up in a rich family where he had all the toys and trinkets money could buy. But his childhood was full of neglect and he was bullied at school. Now he is an adult, he longs to find a soulmate. Someone who understands him. Someone who will love him unconditionally.

Then, one day, Theo meets Anna Cole in a lift. Anna grew up in a care home, and has always wanted to create the noisy family life she never had. She brings love and laughter into Theo’s life. But she wants a baby, and Theo can’t imagine bringing a child into this cruel world…

Theo and Anna are two damaged souls, from two different worlds. Is their love for each other enough to let go of the pain of their pasts? Or will Anna and Theo break each others’ hearts?

There are two sides to every love story. This is Theo’s.

My Thoughts:

I first met Theo in the authors other book, Anna. Anna and Theo are novels that gives the reader the chance to find out more about each character as well as see things from their point of view. You don’t have to have read either book in any particular order, the choice is entirely up to you.

We first meet Theo in his novel when he is at boarding school. My heart broke for the young boy who has to endure bullying as well as having parents who are self absorbed and brush away any of his concerns.

Mr Porter is a character that I absolutely loved and was paramount in the story. The friendship between him and Theo was both heart warming and emotional. There is a particular part towards the end that made me cry as it really was so endearing.

The story very much centres around Theo with Anna appearing later on in the book. It was so good to be reading about her as she has been in the back of my mind since finishing her story and I had to know if these two get their happy ending.

Theo was such an emotional roller coaster of a read. I went through so many emotions whilst reading this book and I loved getting to know as well as understand Theo better. It’s a story very much about love, relationships and friendships as well as overcoming your fears and standing up to your past. Absolutely loved it.

Theo is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
