*Thank you to the author for giving me an eARC in exchange for a honest review.
It’s been two long years since Ava packed everything and left the life she once knew far behind her seeking a new adventure. All, except for her broken heart.
Once upon a time Ava and Ethan were in love. Their relationship was perfect, and they both planned a future together, filled with promise and hope. It wasn’t until an unwelcomed event storms into their lives, tearing their plans and dreams away; leaving Ethan broken and Ava unable to recover.
Two years later, fate crosses their paths once again but the shadow of their haunted past lingers. Ava has slowly rebuilt her life, finally finding some normalcy in it. On the other hand, Ethan has sorted to releasing his guilt and remorse in questionable ways, but his thoughts never strayed from the memories of Ava.
Will they get a second chance to rewrite their story, or will the pain and rejection be too much for Ava to bear and furthermore forgive?
Restoring Us is definitely worth FIVE FREAKING-AMAZING-DEVASTINGLY-HEARTBREAKING STARS!
I find the love between Ava and Ethan so beautiful it hurts!
IT HURTS TO SEE JUST HOW IN LOVE THEY ARE AND IT’S EVEN WORSE WHEN ETHAN LEFT HER.
Their goodbye, oh god, is the worst. They say goodbye without actually saying the exact word but deep down, they know what it actually means so the readers, mainly me at that moment, was bawling my eyes out and just making really loud whale noises.
I understand both Ava and Ethan’s actions. I mean, I tried imagining myself as Ava and then, as Ethan, aaand I gave up because if I was really Ava, I’ll probably be hugging myself in a bedroom and eat lots of ice-cream and just wailing like a baby.
My point is…
WHY DID ETHAN WALKED OUT ON HER AND SERVES HIM RIGHT FOR GETTING THE COLD TREATMENT FROM AVA!
Then here comes the problem, you’ll understand why Ethan did what he did and feel sad because this novel is from both Ava and Ethan’s point of view.
It’s such a beautiful story.
Restoring Us more like PLEASE RESTORE MY FEELS AND FEELINGS BACK IN ORDER BECAUSE I’M SUFFERING FROM THE BEAUTY OF THIS STORY!
Highly recommended for readers who love to read a frustrating-infuriating love story that will have you tearing your hair out and bawling your eyes out while reading!
