Description: Some promises are made to last forever...
What if you fell in love with a stranger...but that stranger had come from your past, a past you never knew existed until the moment your eyes met?
When Tess Winters locks eyes with a stranger at an airport bookstore, it ignites a feeling of passion somewhere deep inside her that she can't explain.
Although the encounter is innocent and brief, the intensity of it lingers, leaving her overwhelmed by a yearning for the mystery man now consuming her every thought.
Struggling to break the powerful hold he has over her heart, Tess starts to experience strange but familiar dreams...dreams from the turn of the twentieth century of the charming Mr Addison Taylor.
As her dreams start to materialize into reality, and past and present begin to blur, Tess is forced to put the pieces of a forgotten time together, and soon discovers that love isn't the only thing that can find you after an eternity.
Captivating, mysterious, and romantic, Life Lived Twice will leave you wondering whether love is so powerful it could last more than a lifetime.
My Thoughts: Life Lived twice is the story of Logan Bailey and Tess, two people who run into each other at an airport and find that they know each other from somewhere. The crazy thing is, they know each other as Lylah Elwood and Addison Taylor, and they know each other from what Tess believes are dreams, but what are actually memories of a past life.
This story is a good one about reincarnation, the importance of forgiveness, and the importance of love. It also ensures that you live life to the fullest. It tells the story of Tess and Logan Bailey in a way both like every other book about reincarnated love, and much different than every other story.
I began thinking I knew exactly how it would end, and though most of it followed my predetermined ideas, it changed toward the end and ended in a way I would never have expected.
As characters, I didn't much connect with Tess or Logan. Tess slept all hours of the day for no reason it seemed, and is ridiculously awkward, and has strange bodily reactions when she's around anyone. She gets guilt for no reasonThey're all sudden and intense, and often unrealistic. Logan isn't nearly as bad, though I was unable to really get to know him.
There is also a strange love triangle/foursome. That being said, this one is quite interesting from anything I had read before. Some of the conversations are a bit too formal sometimes, and a little stiff, but if you can get past that, this is a great book.
I give it 2.5 stars.
