REVIEW: The Note by Teresa Mummert

Title: The Note (originally published as The Suicide Note)
Author: Teresa Mummert
Genre: Contemporary Romance.

SYNOPSIS
Sometimes in life it feels like everything that can go wrong does, but everything happens for a reason. A relationship crumbles so someone else can mend the pieces of your broken heart. A change of plans can lead you to something you didn’t even know you were missing. We help others and discover that it was us who needed to be helped all along.

Jenn’s life is nothing as she had imagined it would be. She is twenty-something with a failing career and her love life has officially ended with an ultimate act of betrayal. She is ready to throw away her dreams when a chance run-in with a soldier, dealing with his own misfortunes, altars her course and changes her perspective on life.

Everything happens for a reason.

MY THOUGHTS

“She was my gravity. She was the light in the darkest of my days, and her smile ignited a flame inside of me that had gone out a long time ago”

The Note is an inspiring love story that I personally enjoyed. I have been leaning into the paranormal YA field for sometime now that contemporary novels have kind of been taking a back seat. This story reminded me why I should read more contemporary romances. Why I used to enjoy them in the first place.

It was a romantic, funny, cutesy and at times heartwrenching story. I loved the plot. Two people from different walks of life meet and from that run-in, a beautiful love story begins. It was a believable relationship and though Jenn annoyed me at times, I loved reading about her.

She was 20-something, or like she said “old enough to know better” and despite all that, she came off as a bit of a cry baby. Okay, fine, in her shoes, I’d feel crappy about my life too. So, I gave her a pass. She had a douche ex and a somewhat selfish sister, an awful job and parents who sucked. Add in some hell dates in there and you have yourself a messed up protagonist.

Shane stuck around because he wanted to help her, to save her but in the end it turned out that she was his salvation. They ended up saving each other. In a world where all he knew was death, blood and sand, she opened his eyes to a what he was missing out on.

“You were the light when my entire world was dark. You gave me a reason to keep going when all I wanted to do was give up.” – Shane ❤

I'm a sucker for beautiful words and I always go "awww" whenever the guy describes just how he feels about the girl. Come on. We read romance for a reason.

Shane was a loveable character and like most soldiers I’ve read about, he was a perfect gentleman. I have to admit that I got a bit of a “Dear John” vibe when I was reading this. Whether that bugged me out of made me love it more, I still don’t know.

Now, I just want to pick up more books by Teresa Mummert 🙂
