The Day We Met by Roxie Cooper

My Thoughts

A romantic story full of emotion and fated love💕

Roxie Cooper has painted a beautiful Story with her words… she turned me the cynic into a true believer in soulmates, well for at least the length of this book… sometimes I wonder why I Love reading romance, I certainly don’t believe in epic love or one true love or soulmates or any of that… but then again I occasionally enjoy a vampire or werewolf book and I certainly don’t believe in them either… this is a book that on paper I really should not have enjoyed, it is about two people who are involved with other people who cannot help but be drawn to one another… my cynical and jaded brain says, BS people can help who they are drawn to, and people aren’t drawn to others unless they’re out looking for it, so I don’t buy this premise for one single minute! And I probably still believe all this, however this book was aBSOLUTELY FABULOUS!

Stephanie and Jamie meet one weekend at an art retreat… Stephanie and Jamie have instant chemistry, the problem? Stephanie is engaged to Matt and Jamie is married to Helen… Stephanie and Jamie recognize there is a strong connection between them unlike no other, but they respect their significant others…. for the next decade they meet up about once a year as friends, but can two people with this strong of a connection stay just friends? Now my logical brain at this point was saying, I certainly wouldn’t want someone to stay with me when they were this fated to be with somebody else? And I think that was my biggest struggle with this Matt and Helen deserve better than what they were getting… but life is messy and nothing is ever black-and-white, this book really had my emotions flying all over the place….

The story is told from the perspective of both Jamie and Stephanie… and not just when they are together we also got a front row seat look at their family life with their significant others who were good people…. Stephanie and Jamie were also extremely likable, seriously I really liked these two characters and I really wanted them to end up together, even though I thought it was wrong… or maybe I didn’t? See what I’m saying very messy and a whole lot of gray! Matt and Helen were very likable as well I wanted nothing but the best for them, I was so torn throughout this entire book… this book was truly playing with my emotions and then… and then… that ending! What? All I’m going to say is have tissue handy!

An exquisite love story that will pull at your heartstrings and leave you reeling and in tears! Recommend!

🎵🎵🎵 Song Running Through My Head

The day we met,
Frozen I held my breath
Right from the start
I knew that I’d found a home for my heart
Beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed I would find you…

*** A big thank you too Ebury Publishing for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

Stephanie doesn’t believe in fate, true love or living happily ever after. She’s content enough being engaged to Matt. But then she meets Jamie, who understands her more than anyone else ever has.

Jamie is happily married to his childhood sweetheart Helen and believes in everything Stephanie doesn’t. So why does he have such a strong connection with Stephanie?

When Stephanie and Jamie meet one fateful weekend in 2006 it will change everything…

Ten years. Two people. One epic love story.

have a lovely day full of love and words!🌹💕
