Before A Beautiful Struggle, Katrina and David's friendship was a bond that couldn't be broken.
Starting with that fated moment when David carried Katrina to the emergency room, we travel back through David's memories as he waits to hear that his best friend and the one woman he truly cares for is going to survive...
“I can’t lose her. You don’t understand how important she is to me,” I ramble. I guess I’m in shock because all I can think about is the sight of all that blood over Katrina’s beautiful face. “She’s my world. I can’t lose her.”
This is book one in the novella series 'The Beauty in Between' the companion series to Lilliana Anderson's best selling 'A Beautiful' series
Wow! This one gripped me from the start. David walks into the hospital carrying a bleeding Katrina in his arms. The story then takes us backward through his POV and shows us their relationship from the beginning.
Katrina has been is best friend since they were kids. She is the best thing that has ever happened to him. Sadly, living with a miserable father and growing up to see how unhappy his parents were affects him. He doesn’t think he’s relationship material. By the time he’s ready to face what he truly feels for Katrina and make a move, it’s too late. Or is it?
I fell in love with these characters. While reading I kept shouting in my head for David to just go for it. When I saw several opportunities for him just slipping away, my heart ached. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see if these two can finally get on the same page and get together.
