VBT# A Lover's Lament - K.L Grayson and B.T Urruela
Review: A Lover's Lament - K.L Grayson and B.T Urruela - October 2016
Normally I am a pretty quick reader, but A Lover's Lament was
one of those books that took me a little bit longer than usual to read. It
didn't feel slow paced, in fact, it was steady, but there was something about the book
that makes the reader want to take their time reading the book. The book starts
off with best friends Devin and Katie finally getting together as they had loved one another since the first day they
met when they were starting school. Then Devin breaks the news and on the sidelines waits for Wyatt to come and pick up the pieces as Wyatt has always
loved Katie. To me, I never really liked
the character Wyatt as he always seemed desperate and interfered and one of those creepy guys who overstep the boundaries
and try and act romantic towards the girl to get her mind off the one she cares for. Wyatt is the fallback type of guy or
the friends with benefits one - the one you care about but never see yourself
ever having a true future with him. Ten years pass and tragedy occur with Katie and her Dad in a car accident.
The cause of the accident was a drunk driver who turned out to be a Soldier- a
war hero. Under her therapist Dr. Perry's suggestion, Katie must write to one
of the participating soldiers in a pen pal program.
One named stands out to her on the list - Devin Clay. Her Childhood friend and
the one who broke her heart completely. The pair start writing and we discover
that neither of them ever stopped loving one another and that the chemistry, passion, and spark is still alive and going
stronger as it was the day they last saw one another. During the letters, we read as Katie learns to heal and in
a way Devin does as well and it gives him a reason to survive. I loved this
book and then just as things start to look up and we are like Yay. We are given a war scene filled with explosions
which results inunanswered mail and leaves us readers hang on the edge of our seats in the hope that Devin is going to be alright.
We then sigh a breath of relief and then pow we are faced with it again and right
up to the last page, I can tell you I was
holding my breath as I didn't want this book to end up as a tragic love story. A Lover's Lament is a book that if you
are a romantic at heart, you will enjoy
and it is one of those love stories for the ages. If you are a sucker for
Second Chance romances, forgiveness and the power of healing and the art of letter-writing, then A Lover's Lament by KL
Grayson and BT Urruela is the read for you.
