Review - Truly, Madly, Deeply, You by Cecilia Robert

Title and Author: Truly, Madly, Deeply, You by Cecilia Robert
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing
Publication Date: March 21st, 2012
Paperback/Hardcover: 200
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Four days before Valentine’s Day, Liese Hansfeld is determined to shut the door to her house, as well as her heart, for her annual four days of mourning her one true love. Little does she know her best friend Freytag Meier is just as determined to keep her from her ritual. He’s ready to pick the lock to her apartment door and camp in her living room if that’s what it takes.

What Freytag isn’t prepared for is the surge of deep-rooted emotions he feels for Liese, but two things stand in his way: the grief and guilt she still clutches close to her heart, and a man who threatens to snatch Liese from under Frey’s watchful eye. Frey is determined to distract her into forgetting her pain. But is that enough to ease her grief, or help her see he can be more than her best friend?

I received this book from Inkspell Publishing in exchange if an honest review and I have to say this is a very sweet story.
For the past two years and due to a tragic accident, Liese’s life hasn’t been easy and the days leading up to Valentine’s Day are always the worse for her. Knowing this, her childhood friend, Frey has decided enough is enough. He plans to spend the days before Valentine’s Day with Liese whether she wants it or nor. He can’t stand seeing his friend suffer, especially when he realized things are worse than what he imagined.
At first, Liese and Frey are not aware their feelings for each other have gone beyond friendship but when they do realize it Liese is too afraid to acknowledge her feelings. She’s took afraid of losing yet another person who is so important to her.
I liked Liese. She has gone through a lot but she’s still strong, even though she carries a lot of guilt around. I enjoyed reading about her but I have to confess she sometimes made me feel frustrated, especially because she couldn’t seem to realize how great and sweet Freytag was and that she was really lucky to have him.
Frey really is great. He’s sweet, caring, and romantic, threats Liese incredibly well and was always there for her. He knew he loved her but he was willing to wait until she was ready to look at him as more than just a friend.
The relationship between the two of them developed nicely and was really sweet.
I really enjoyed this book. It is about a great friendship turning into an ever better romance.
The story is well told and beautiful and was able to keep me interested. I only wished this book was a little longer.
If you like Contemporary Romance and are looking for a sweet story, Truly, Madly, Deeply might just be the book for you.
