Getting over Hawke is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
I couldn’t breathe, sleep, or eat. Every day was more agonizing than the one that followed. But somehow, after two years of suffering, I finally got back on my feet.
And I moved on.
Now I’m living in the city and running my own bakery. Life is good again. I’m surrounded by good friends that I love, and every day is even better than the last.
Until everything changes.
Now I have to face him after two years of silence. I have to look him in the eye and act like he has no effect on me. I have to hold my head high and pretend he didn’t shatter me into a million pieces.
I have to act like he doesn’t mean a damn thing to me.
Can I fool him? Can I fool myself?
I highly would recommend all bloggers have surgeries that put them on bed rest. I am blazing through books I need to review. Its ridiculous how much time one can really devote to reading when they aren’t supposed to be doing anything else.
So after the way “Monday” ended, I am not going to even try and act like I was looking forward to reading “Tuesday”. E.L. Todd has woven such a connection between Frankie and Hawke and I honestly felt like a part of me died at the end of book 1. But back to that surgery that’s left me with more time than I know what to do with…
“Tuesday” starts with Marie and Axel becoming engaged. Frankie has her bakery in Manhattan and its been two years since she’s seen Hawke. We don’t hear about anything else that’s happened in the meantime. I, personally, appreciated that the author took that approach. There is a scene where Frankie and Hawke basically have almost a confessional type of moment and I actually felt that although it was intensely painful to experience, I felt it was right for Frankie to be the one to tell Hawke everything she experienced. Had it just been narrated, I don’t think it would have done it justice.
It was really interesting to see Frankie and Hawke both just existing. I don’t think anyone really noticed their connection until they truly focused on it. I appreciated that when Frankie or Hawke tried to communicate to Axel or Marie about being soul mates, no one really understood. Not because I don’t think Marie and Axel aren’t meant to be together, but I think when you have that special connection with someone, its just there.
I think in life, we sometimes meet people and that connection is just there. No one else understands but its there. That’s what Frankie and Hawke have. This book seemed to more, to me, about both Frankie and Hawke both healing. Its like they were both forgiving themselves and each other at the same time. But even as those things are happening, we are seeing them evolve as a couple. There is a scene where Frankie was upset about the other women in Hawke’s past who have been in his bed. He initially talks to her about it but he rectifies the situation. Not because he just has money and can, but you can tell he truly can see why Frankie feels the way she does. To me, it was a poignant moment.
Not going to lie, I am SO nervous for “Wednesday” because I just don’t know that I think E.L. Todd will make it easy on Frankie and Hawke and I want them to have their happily ever after like, 5 books before this even existed.
