After Raine Copelin turns down her long-time boyfriend Caleb Anders’s marriage proposal, the two are barely speaking, barely coping as they enter graduate school at Lindon University. Caleb doesn’t understand what happened—their relationship has been picture-perfect since high school. He always imagined starting a family together, the same happily ever after his parents had. Until the day she broke his heart, he thought Raine wanted that, too.
But Raine has her reasons. Her secrets. She knows she can’t give Caleb the future he wants, so she decides to let him go, no matter the price she has to pay. But when fresh tragedy sends Caleb spiraling back into Raine’s arms, the unanswered questions between them bring old feelings and new wounds to the surface. Fighting grief, lies, and fear, the two must figure out if their love ever truly ended, or if their uncertain futures might still include each other.
Uplifting, angsty, and sweet!
Lose You to Find Me is an emotive, second-chance romance between the overwhelmed, kind Caleb and the troubled, regretful Raine as they discover that beneath all the hurt, guilt, miscommunication, and past secrets is a deeply rooted friendship, sizzling attraction, and unconditional love that is still smouldering and certainly worth fighting for.
The writing is effortless and smooth. The characters are caring, distressed, and endearing. And the plot is a tender tale of life, love, loss, family, expectations, forgiveness, introspection, acceptance, secrets, friendship, the importance of communication, and new beginnings.
Overall, Lose You to Find Me is the third title in a series that, for me, just keeps getting better and better. It’s a dramatic, romantic, passionate read by Celeste with characters I couldn’t help but root for and a heartwarming ending that left me smitten, satisfied, and ecstatic that there’s still more to come!
