From the moment she first learned to read, literary genius Darcy Wells has spent most of her time living in the worlds of her books. There, she can avoid the crushing reality of her mother’s hoarding and pretend her life is simply ordinary. But when a new property manager becomes more active in the upkeep of their apartment complex, the only home Darcy has ever known outside of her books suddenly hangs in the balance.
While Darcy is struggling to survive beneath the weight of her mother’s compulsive shopping, Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future, walks into the bookstore where she works…and straight into her heart. For the first time in her life, Darcy can’t seem to find the right words. Fairy tales are one thing, but real love makes her want to hide inside her carefully constructed ink-and-paper bomb shelter.
Still, after spending her whole life keeping people out, something about Asher makes Darcy want to open up. But securing her own happily-ever-after will mean she’ll need to stop hiding and start living her own truth—even if it’s messy.
This was such a great read. Not just because it spoke to the book nerd in me but for all of the additional growth that is in those pages. From the start of the book we get the reality of what it may be like to hide a hoarder and the anxiety that goes along with it. I would probably spend a lot of time lost in books as well.
The main characters stands on her own and doesn’t need a man. But when said man steps into her life with his own baggage it makes your heart swell that much more. Instead of a perfect man we get baggage and growth. Darcy and Asher must learn to trust each other and more importantly lean on each other.
This is the perfect book for any bibliophile. If you are into depth of characters and tons of personal growth in a sweet romance this is for you.
