Blurb : Fairy tales aren’t real…but love is.

 

Sara has a kick-ass life—loyal friends, a house in San Francisco, and an amazing job as a virtual assistant. It’s perfect…except that Sara doesn’t actually exist. She’s just a borrowed name that Andi Clark hides behind. Using a fake identity lets Andi stay safely shielded behind the screen of her computer and concealed from the real world. With her history, pretending to be someone she’s not is the only way Andi can make up for the mistakes of her past. Not exactly ideal, but hey, no one’s life is perfect.Actually…Hayden Bennett’s life is pretty damn perfect. He’s married to a beautiful woman, lives in a luxury apartment, and is prepped to take over the multi-million dollar company his father built. Perfect…except that his wife is madly in love with someone else, his career is meaningless, and he’s forgotten how to live, let alone be happy. But when Hayden hires a new virtual assistant named Sara, her sharp wit and intelligence leaves him wanting something more. Something real. Something incredible.Two people need to wake up to understand how perfect they are…for each other. If they can’t, any chance either of them have of finding a happily ever after will be virtually impossible.

 

Review : Oh my Gosh – was I looking forward to reading Virtually Impossible (Once and Forever #2) by Lauren Stewart – after reading “Darker Water” the first book in that series I had really high expectations about this second book.

 

And now ? well now after reading it I have a huge problem – because I noticed. The author needed two years between the first and the second book and HOW will I manage to wait that long if the next book needs another 2 years ?

 

Yes the book was really THAT good.

 

I could point out reasons that formed my opinion but I would take away parts of the unique way of this authors writing. And it is to beautiful to do that – I remember when I wrote the review for the first book (just a few weeks ago) that I felt this pressure in my chest. (no – my heart works fine – I am talking about the pressure you feel when you read something very emotional and you are sure that this story will stay a long time with you).

 

Virtually Impossible has a plot that can not be compared to Darker Water – as it is unique like Darker Water was. If the author continues in that way of writing I would love to compare her to some of my absolute favorite authors and considering the intriguing kind of plot she uses I am really thinking Colleen Hoover here. (I did not recheck what I wrote on Darker Water but I would not be surprised if I said something similar there too)

 

Dear Author, Please don’t let me suffer 2 years for the next book in this series
