Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
From the beautiful moment in the prologue when Sawyer and Mindy are just kids to the wonderful end, this story is gripping. I loved the back and forth between them — Sawyer being afraid to commit because of his PTSD, and Mindy keeps going back for the little pieces that he does allow himself to show her. But when he refuses to let her all the way in, it doesn’t matter how much or for how long they love one another.
I really liked that during their split, we saw both of them working on themselves and what they want for their future. Rather than a “Six months later…” chapter header where the story just jumps ahead. I felt that seeing Sawyer’s struggle, and seeing Mindy set up her dream business, went a long way in rooting for them as a couple to get back together and be in a healthy place. I hate being told, not shown a monumental plot point like that.
Here With Me is part of a series, but is a true standalone. Sawyer’s sister and brother-in-law, Noel and Taron, were the couple in the previous book and I am definitely going to go and read their story before Deacon’s book comes out next.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
