Book Description:

This is not a typical love story, but it’s our love story.

Anna wasn’t looking for love when Adam swept her off her feet but there was no denying their connection, and she believed they would be together forever.

Years later, cracks have appeared in their relationship. Anna is questioning whether their love can really be eternal when a cruel twist of fate delivers a crushing blow, and Anna and Adam are completely lost to one another. Now, Anna needs Adam more than ever, but the way back to him has life-changing consequences.
 
Is a second chance at first love really worth the sacrifice? Anna needs to decide and time is running out…

A beautiful and emotional love story that asks, how far would you go for a second chance at first love? Perfect for fans of The Man Who Didn’t Call and Miss You.

My Thoughts:

Without a doubt one of the most powerful love stories you will read this year.

When Anna and Adam meet for the first time, you can literally see the sparks fly. A chance meeting where the odds are against them but this reinforces what real love is all about. It maybe a love story but as with any relationship, it has it’s ups and downs and we get to ride along this bumpy journey of which smashed my heart into tiny little pieces.

I don’t want to give to much away but the author touches on some quite sensitive subjects which made it a hard read in places. My heart went out to Anna and all that she is going through. She was such a realistic character and I have a feeling that women that have been through similar to what she has will be able to relate to her.

Adam definitely stole a piece of my heart. His love for Anna put my heart through the wringer. He is such the sweetest of characters of which at times I felt for this sensitive man who at times has to bear the brunt of his wife’s frustrations. I felt empathy for both of them. Even though their close friends Nell and Josh are in the background throughout, they play such a pivotal part in the story.

The Life We Almost Had is a story that broke me as well as my heart. I read the last part of the book through tears and heart wrenching sobs. For an author to grab my emotions in such a way is testament to what a wonderful writer they are. This is a love story and characters who will stay with me for a very long time. Heart-breakingly beautiful.

My thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me to be part of the blog tour. My thanks also to HQ Stories and NetGalley for a readers copy of the book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
