I kindly received Handle Me with Care in exchange of an honest review by the author.
On September 11th 2001, the worlds worst terrrorr attacks in New York had changed Maddie’s life. Maddie’s boyfriend Riley was working in New York, and that morning he had a meeting in the North Tower of the World Trade Center. On that day Maddie lost her one true love. When Maddie delivers an erotic cake to a one-hundredth birthday party by mistake Evan’s and Maddies paths cross for the first time.They’d only exchanged a few words, but it hadn’t lessend Maddies reaction to Evan. Since Riley, no other man had made her this nervous. Evan had stirred up feelings Maddie had thought she would never know again. Somehow they clicked, and it’ as though they’ve known each other for a lot longer than they actually have. Maddie wasn’t sure wheter anyone got two chances at real happiness, but maybe, Evan was the man to make her take a risk and try again. Can Maddie make peace with the past and finally let herself be happy again?
Descriptive words to describe this novel would be – stunning, fabulous, emotional, flawless and amazing! 100% worth it. Handle Me with Care is a beautifully written, moving, heartwarming and heartbreaking must-read story. The main and other characters are very well-developed as is the unique and fascinating plot, all set in a location that will both enthrall and intrigue the reader.
Helen’s writing enchanted me from the very first moment on. She has an inncredible talent for writing. I really enjoying the author’s calm and detailed writing style, even though I did occasionally feel like more could have happened in the story. This book gripped me that much and I really didn’t want to put it down. I wanted to continue reading through each new chapter that I came to because even though the journey may have been emotional and sweet it was a wonderful one. I absolutely love the real life element of this story, the plot could actually be anyone of our lives. Told from both main characters characters’ perspectives, the author brought this story alive. All I can say is thank you to this fabulous author for bringing this story to my attention. It’s one you do not want to miss out on!
