Leila’s charm bracelet tells a story of love, a story of loss, a story of hope.
This is the story of her… and the story of Jake.
When Leila Jones loses her precious charm bracelet and a stranger finds it, she has to tell the story of how she got the charms to prove she’s the owner. Each and every one is a precious memory of her life with Jake.
So Leila starts at the beginning, recounting the charms and experiences that have led her to the present. A present she never could have expected when she met Jake nearly twenty years ago…
I received a copy of this audiobook from Harper Collins Audio via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
This story is a slow burn, to begin with, I wasn’t sure it would hold my interest, It’s a new adult romance, and that was many years ago for me. The characters are engaging, and they soon draw you into their world. You care what happens to them, and then you’re hooked and have to keep listening.
From the beginning, you have a feeling that this story will break your heart, and it does. There’s also laughter, love and so much growing up for Leila and Jake in this story. You want them to get the happy ending they deserve.
I enjoyed listening to this love story. The narrator is professional and brings the characters to life. You forget she’s there and it’s just you and the characters telling their story.
This is a beautiful story, believable, emotional and raw, something that leaves echoes in your mind.
