“That special someone can walk in and out of your life, yet leave a permanent mark that lasts a lifetime…’


Lucy Love always wanted to travel and explore the world before being forced to grow up and act like an adult in the big bad world laid out before her.

Deciding to stick to her dreams, she ensues on a summer of a lifetime, making memories, having fun and falling in love for the very first time.

Like most things in life, all good things must come to an end, but will she be able to move past her broken heart and love again, or is that perfect summer destined to haunt her once again?

Now, ten years on Lucy has a budding career and the best family and friends that a girl could wish for, but after many failed relationships what’s in store for her love life?

Is fate destined to bring Lucy and her one true love back together, or is it just an evil way of life, destined to break her heart once again?”

My thoughts:

“Since you’ve been gone was a great 4 star read.

We start out in the beginning with Lucy at her best friend Hannah’s wedding, when she sees a certain someone she is in shock. Why is he here?

We jump back 10 years to Lucy in Spain working for the summer. The first time that Lucy meets Jake is not the most pleasant of experiences. I enjoyed watching these two get to know each other, Lucy opened up more and more to him. You could feel the connection they had. Could he be the one?

If I thought I was scared before, it’s got nothing on how I’m feeling with him looking at me like that.

Something happens that causes Lucy to run. Which totally blew my mind. This story was great, although I think I would have liked a little more of a look into their lives the 10 years they were apart. Why did it take 10 years to find her?

The secondary characters added a great element to the story. Fran was not my most favorite of people, she seemed to always put herself first no matter what. 

I would like to see more from these two, I want to know where they go from here, I need more from Lucy and Jake. 
Thank you S.M Phillips for the great read.
