“Love isn’t crazy. Love isn’t a degree of insanity. Love is sanity at its purest. It forces your soul to make a rational choice—a choice to make another person’s happiness your priority, to allow them access to your heart and soul. Letting Ezra go was choosing to love him. Letting him go was the best way you knew how to choose his joy over your own. I can see it in both of you. This love isn’t one that will go down without a fight.”
Seven months is a long time to wait.
Ezra has three goals. There is no choice. He has to get better, for himself and for Aysa.
Except, his best friend Roman has moved in in his absence. He’s given Ezra’s girl a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, and a fighting chance at winning her heart.
Aysa knows who her heart belongs to.
But loving Ezra is no easy task.
Ezra never promised simple, he only promised his heart.
Aysa has two paths in front of her, one carries peace and one carries a love that never ends.
"You want to hide, baby?"
The blood rushes from my face. He was asking me so much more than just about hiding.
"I can't. The cabinet is gone."
"You don't need a cabinet to hide. You know that. I'm yours for the hiding. Hide with me."
DOVES FOR SALE is the second half of Ezra and Aysa's story. Will they be able to find their way back to one another? Or will other obstacles keep them from their happiness? Felix skillfully tells their story of struggle, hope and love. Struggle to find their way back to one another. Hope that that the other still feels the same. Love that has never, ever gone away…
I loved the new and improved Aysa that we get to see now. She has come so far since we first met this shy, awkward girl. Now she is a bit fiercer and coming out of her shell. Working on herself and her relationship with her family, we are seeing so much more to her. I guess you can say the same about Ezra. He was tortured in the first book. And now that he has gotten some “help” we are seeing a whole different guy. I think readers are going to like what they read!
I have mentioned in my review of SPARROWS FOR FREE that there wasn't a whole lot of romance in that book. But it was exactly the amount the story called for. Now DOVES FOR SALE is a different story. It screams for the romance and romance is what we get. Felix is in her element when it comes to writing romance. That chick knows exactly what she is doing and how to get it across as sweetly and beautifully written as possible. And she delivered in this book.
"You still love me?"
His tone is pitiful. I wish he knew how deep my love ran. If only words would do it justice.
"If I loved the mess you were then, what makes you think I wouldn't love you now?"
One of my most favorite parts of the whole book was the Knox and Aysa scenes. Aysa definitely keeps him on his toes and his prayer life steady. But you can absolutely tell they are the bestest of friends when they are around one another. Yes, I said bestest! Such fun those two are together. I never knew any cool priests like Knox when I was growing up. We only had the old, crotchety ones. But trust me…you are going to love them together.
My suggestion to you would be to drop whatever measly little book you are reading at the moment and finish Ezra and Aysa’s story. You need to know if they end up with one another. You need to live the romance. You need to see what fun is hiding within these pages. All of this book is an absolute need! I can promise you that. 5 Stars!
