Restoring Us

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: January 11, 2015


Two years.

It’s been two long years since Ava packed everything and left the life she once knew far behind her seeking a new adventure. All, except for her broken heart.

Once upon a time Ava and Ethan were in love. Their relationship was perfect, and they both planned a future together, filled with promise and hope. It wasn’t until an unwelcomed event storms into their lives, tearing their plans and dreams away; leaving Ethan broken and Ava unable to recover.

Two years later, fate crosses their paths once again but the shadow of their haunted past lingers. Ava has slowly rebuilt her life, finally finding some normalcy in it. On the other hand, Ethan has sorted to releasing his guilt and remorse in questionable ways, but his thoughts never strayed from the memories of Ava.

Will they get a second chance to rewrite their story, or will the pain and rejection be too much for Ava to bear and furthermore forgive?

My thoughts:

I loved this story. First 2 chapters made me cry and cursing Ethan. I wasn’t his biggest fan. I even thought that Ava should fall in love with someone new, someone who won’t walk away whenever hardship is thrown their way. But when the story progressed I fell in love with him. I understood his reasoning and to be honest I started wondering if I would not react the same, if something like that happened to me when I was young, stupid and whole life was ahead of me. Of course leaving Ava was his biggest mistake and regret, but he feels it. And is trying his hardest to make up everything to her.

Ava is such a sweetheart. She is kind and is not your typical rich daddy’s daughter. She works hard to fulfil her dreams. One of her dreams was to be forever and ever with Ethan. Her best friend, her lover and her soul mate. Until she was diagnosed with cancer and all her world collapsed. Her dreams were shattered, when the one who made her fight to stay alive, left her. Even though she won the battle with cancer, she has lost him. We meet her in present time when she returns from her 2 years adventure in Europe, where she was sightseeing and gathering knowledge about European Culture. She thinks she was able to move on and forget Ethan, but only one word from him, simple “Hi” made her shiver and caused all feelings, memories and emotions to come back.

The story is beautiful way of showing about second chances and how hard it is on those, who are sick and also the ones that are around people who are slowly dying.

I loved how Fabiola showed Ethan persistence to prove Ava that he has changed and he is no longer that stupid, 21 year old boy, who was afraid. And she beautifully shows the power of forgiveness.

On the other hand, not only main characters are amazingly build. But side characters, Katie, Dan, Jess and Aiden are well developed and strong characters in the story and without them, it would be just another ugly cry book. But thanks to them you have also times when you can’t stop laughing.

Beautiful story and it well deserves 5 stars in my opinion.
