First, he saved me. I lived because he was a hero. And then he was gone. Uprooted by the fire that destroyed our home, my family moved away and I never saw David Andrews again. Then, he found me. Eighteen years later, he rescued me again – in much simpler terms, of course. By loving me, by giving me the fairy tale I’d always hoped for, he provided me with the perfect life. Now, he needs to be saved. It’s my turn to be strong, to be brave, to be valiant. When flames threaten to turn us to ashes, it’s up to me to pull us From the Wreckage.
Wow just wow! Words cannot even start to describe the feelings I have after finishing this novel. I feel I cannot do this wonderful yet heartbreaking story justice.
The main themes that are being discussed are ones that have affected most of us in one way or another. I clearly remember the day of 9/11, when the grounds keeper came into our classroom to inform us about the events.
Gracie and David are one of those epic loves that are one of a kind. They’ve been friends from when they were little children and one particular event has solidified that bond even more. Unfortunately, it is because of that event that they are forced to part ways and will not see each other again until years after.
Once they do see each other again, the sparks that were there all those years ago, ignite. The relationship that follows is one that is so heartwarming, you really felt the love splashing from the pages.
Now we know David is a firefighter and that that is an occupation that comes with hazards. Around the period of the commemoration of 9/11 tragedy strikes again and what’ll happen next will tug on your heartstrings and will make you grab a big box of tissues.
Man.... I’m still crying after just finishing! I urge you to take your time and savor this story and share it with the people around you. It is one of those that’ll learn you some major life lessons.
Memories are precious but they are not all there is to life. Live your life and treat the people around you like you want to be treated. Seize the day and live your life to the fullest!
Two songs I found to compliment the story:
How Long Will I Love You by Ellie Goulding
I Want You To Want Me by Cheap Trick

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream. Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.
