Hey word nerds!! I know I’m kind of behind the curve with this release but I do what I want so whatever haha!
As always the queen slayed with yet another heartfelt story of life. I think one of the things I love most about CoHo is that her work is usually pretty eye opening and makes me think about things that I may know nothing about.
Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.
All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?
This couple starts off in the most swoon worthy way and then real life hits and reminds us that even the greatest love of our lives aren’t safe the harsh realities of life. In her usual style CoHo creates a world that pulls you in and makes your heart hurt right along with her characters.
I ignored family and friends at a camping trip so I could delve into this amazing and heart wrenching story. My bestie had already read the book so every time I gasped she would just look at me and nod. I think that this is a great book that can bring healing to some and understanding and a new respect to others.
Quinn reminded me so much of myself because she was so afraid to open up and be vulnerable and was actually willing to risk her marriage to a man she still loved rather than “drag” him into her hurt. So many times I wanted to reach into this book and shake her because so much pain could have been avoided with communication. I don’t even feel bad for being a hypocrite about this.
Graham. Oh sweet Graham. He honestly reminded me of my husband. So stoic and always taking care of Quinn. He is not perfect but I think that adds to authenticity of the story. He is a flawed man that loves his flawed wife and is willing to fight for her. My favorite quote in the book came from a side character that was explaining the longevity of his marriage and said “Our marriage hasn’t been perfect. No marriage is perfect. There were times when she gave up on us. There were even more times when I gave up on us. The secret to our longevity is that we never gave up at the same time.” This is a reminder that we all need because even our perfect love takes word and a willingness to fight for what we need.
Overall CoHo nailed it again and reminds me why I will one-click any of her books, even before there is a cover or description! What did you guys think about this one? Let’s chat!
