ONCE UPON A TIME...
the most beautiful boy in the world kissed me.
I've never been able to forget.
Perhaps it was his jet-black hair,
or the changing copper-color of his eyes,
the intense way he looked at me...
or the fact that he awakened my passion for the first time,
at once otherworldly yet heartbreakingly real.
After that kiss, I never saw him again.
His name was Jack Beauloup.
Jack, my "Beautiful Wolf."
Twenty years passed.
He has returned.
Jack Beauloup and Darcy Turner share one, perfect kiss in high school before he vanishes from sleepy Carlisle, NH without a trace.
Twenty years later, Darcy, who has never forgotten Jack, is shocked when he suddenly appears as a guest at her cousin's wedding. Their attraction to one another is just as searing as it was in high school, but immediately there are a landslide of questions that need answers. Where did he go? Why did he disappear? And what made him return?
As they find their way back to each other, they will discover that the secrets Jack holds are enough to bind them for life, or rip them apart forever.
The author does a wonderful job of making sure you get every detail of the story pictured in your head. I felt like I was there the whole time. I could even smell the scents that they describe. I loved that about the book and it was what helped me get sucked into the story.
Darcy is such a wonderful person. I understand her side of things with not believing in things that you can't prove. I am also very much into science and have trouble accepting things that I haven't proven to be true. I know this isn't always the case, and that there are things that just can't be explained but are very real. Darcy seems to also be in this situation. I can say though that she seems open to things once she can really think them through. She was a strong character that has so much promise. I agree with her on most things and how it is hard to decide between your head and your heart. I feel for her through this book.
Jack, Jack, Jack. Sigh. I will admit with Jack that he isn't my type physically. As the author described him I could picture him completely but it wasn't a love at first read for me (only physically). As you get to read his side of the story halfway through the book you get to understand everything. All the things he does for Darcy is truly jaw-dropping. He is such a sweet heart and I felt my heart get ripped out when his did. I hope very much he gets all he desires in the end and his struggles he has had for his whole life will be worth it.
This book is set in a small town called Carlisle and it is scattered all over the town. It isn't hard to follow and the author does a great job of giving you the details of all that is around them at the moment. She manages to do it in a way that doesn't make the book seem long winded. It was a nice treat.
There are some steamy moments in the book but nothing that isn't too hard to handle. They are romantic and sensual and worth every word to read.
I can't wait to get ahold of the next book and start to devour it and find out how it all ends.
