This is such a beautiful romance. Yes there is drama and there is angst, but in my opinion that just made the romance that much more romantic. And lordy, can Siobhan Davis write some beautiful romance!! She also wrote some great hot and heavy scenes too!
Kalvin and Lana are soulmates.
Definition of Soulmate in the Urban Dictionary:
A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet — a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior. Your soulmate understands and connects with you in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when you are around them. And when you are not around them, you are all that much more aware of the harshness of life, and how bonding with another person in this way is the most significant and satisfying thing you will experience in your lifetime. You are also all that much aware of the beauty in life, because you have been given a great gift and will always be thankful.
Throughout reading the Kennedy Boys series we see this is what Kalvin and Lana have had since they were children and it grew stronger as they got older, until Kalvin’s mother put a stop to them seeing each other. But that connection was still there, even when they tried to fight it. They hurt each other many times. It was just about killing them. Now in Loving Kalvin they are in college. Lana went to University of Florida. Kalvin went there, thinking that’s where she went, and he wanted to find her and win back her love. He knew they belonged together and was willing to try whatever it took to get her back. it was beautiful and he was so incredibly romantic.
Lana feels she’s undeserving of Kalvin’s love. She’s made some pretty horrible mistakes and hurt Kalvin very badly. Even though he says he forgives her, she just cannot forgive herself. It doesn’t help that she still isn’t being totally honest with him and is holding back something very important from him. The guilt is eating her up and making her feel unworthy of his love.
The whole story is so heartwarming and the lesson of forgiveness is a big one. I loved this book so much! Every single page!! We even got some glimpses of my favorite Kennedy, Kyler, and Faye, and the family! Yay!! I totally recommend this book, in fact I recommend that you NOT MISS IT!!! But make sure you have a box of tissues on hand, because you will feel ALL the feels!!!
