Rune moves in next door to Poppy at seven years old and they become the best friends. Over time their friendship turns into the high school sweetheart hometown fairytale. Rune & Poppy’s world gets turned over when Rune has to move back to Norway. Their Promise to always talk and not lose each other forever gets broken. Now with 2 years of silence Rune comes back. But who he is and who Poppy is are not the same. Poppy has a secret and Rune is not the loving caring guy she once knew.
To watch them find their way back to each other is beautiful and Rune although a class A Jerk to almost everyone is simply PERFECT for and to Poppy. Poppy has a dream to collect a thousand kisses and Rune is determined to give her EVERY last one. To watch these two fall in love, out of love, in love and lose love is an emotional roller coaster I was determined to finish. I felt like I closed my eyes, lifted my hands in the air and could only feel the breeze at times, then at other times I felt my stomach in my throat and wasn’t sure I could hold on any longer. I’ve have NEVER held such an emotional pull to a book as I did this one. It almost hit me on a spiritual level of my soul. It all just made the tears, the putting down this book and walking away at times worth it. I immediately want to read it again but I fear I just couldn’t take it right now to go through it all again.
This is a 10 Star emotional read but worth every tear and smile along the way.
