Every time Andra Stone crosses paths with Everett Covington, trouble follows. First she loses her scholarship. Then she loses the apartment she’d wanted more than anything. But tragedy hits hardest when she loses her grandmother—the best friend Andra has ever known. She determines that Everett is a talisman of ill fortune. When Everett comes to work in her hospital and is applying for the same position she’d been working toward since residency, Andra believes him to be her personal poltergeist.
The human heart has four chambers—four chances to get it right. Andra has only one chance left.
Andra and Everett are friends. They have this cute little thing they do to address each other, and even though it is a little silly, it is quite endearing.
At the beginning of the book, Andra has just had her heart broken (or so she thinks) by Everett’s roommate. So naturally she is spray painting Tool on his truck. Everett can’t agree more with her, and wants to help. This kicks off the start of their very intense, back and forth relationship.
I LOVED this book. I would have to say this is my favorite one in this series published so far. That being said, in July Taylor Dean’s book releases, and that one is the absolute best one I have read, but this one is a very close second.
I loved the feel of this book. Andra is fun, full of spunk, a person who knows what she wants, ready to work for it and go get it. I can relate to that. Everett is that nice, fall in love forever kind of guy. The one you can just never quite get over. So the fact that this book covers about 15 years and you see them both not quite over each other makes utter sense. I did not realize the whole time span as I started reading this book, and when the second chamber closed off and moved forward many years I was left reeling. I actually started ranting out loud, my husband thought something had gone terribly wrong. It had, for me, in my little world that sucked me up and had me reading, devouring and losing myself in this book. It took me about a day and a night to get through it, I was absorbed by this story. It was nice to loose myself in the pages, and feel along with Andra an Everett.
This is the first Julie Wright book for me, but I look forward to checking out more of her books in the future. What a great discovery for me 🙂
