Book Review- Nineteen Letters by Jodi Perry


Genre: Contemporary Romance
POV: Dual
Heat Level: Mild


Nineteen. There’s something about that number; it not only brought us together, bonding us forever, it also played a hand in tearing us apart.

The nineteenth of January 1996. I’ll never forget it. It was the day we met. I was seven and she was six. It was the day she moved in next door, and the day I developed my first crush on a girl.

Exactly nineteen years later, all my dreams came true when she became my wife. She was the love of my life. My soul mate. My everything. The reason I looked forward to waking up every morning.

Then tragedy struck. Nineteen days after we married, she was in an accident that would change our lives forever. When she woke from her coma, she had no memory of me, of us, of the love we shared.

I was crushed. She was my air, and without her I couldn’t breathe.

The sparkle that once glistened her eyes when she looked at me was gone. To her, now, I was a stranger. I had not only lost my wife, I had lost my best friend.

But I refused to let this tragedy be the end of us. That’s when I started to write her letters, stories of our life. Of when we met. About the happier times, and everything we had experienced together.

What we had was far too beautiful to be forgotten.

Forever Boy Stars

This was an amazingly sweet love story! The patience, love and unwavering commitment that Braxton had for Jemma had me absolutely SWOONING!

These two had my favorite type of friends to lovers romance. They grew up together as kids living next door to each other and eventually they drift into their romantic relationship. They were each others first in every way. There was never any OW/OM drama.

Then tragedy strikes and Jemma suffers from head trauma and does not have any recollection of their life together. My heart absolutely broke for Braxton. His pain was so PALPABLE.

THIS MAN WAS EVERYTHING! Even though Jemma physically recovered from her accident, he basically lost his wife. Despite the pain he is in, he makes every attempt to comfort Jemma and puts her needs before himself. This man was so patient, so understanding. His love was so SELFLESS. He then goes on to write the most romantic letters to Jemma to give her reminders of their past and the love they had for each other.

This story will make you cry and it will make you laugh and it will make you SWOON!
