Blog Tour: Complete by Lindy Zart; Review + Giveaway





Complete (Incomplete #2)
Author: Lindy Zart
Release Date: 15 March 2014

If the truth sets one free, why does Lily Jacobs feel so trapped?

She's learned doing the right thing isn't always best and now she is living the consequences of her greatest sacrifice. Every day since Grayson Lee left is one she wishes he hadn't. Years have gone by since their friendship turned to more and then was eradicated by Lily alone; enough time for their young love to fade. Only it hasn't, not for Lily.

Now he is back and seeing him is devastating to her at the same time it is rapture. She tries to accept that they cannot be together, but everything inside her shouts that they should be; that they only fit with each other. And so she has to accept the greatest truth of all: She loves him still. She loves him enough not to let him go this time.

Excerpt

He wordlessly holds out a hand to me. His chest is rising and lowering from jumping around and heat emanates from him as he holds my gaze. As I fit my hand in his, the song changes to 'Everything Changes' by Staind. The scent of home wraps around me as he pulls me into his strong arms. His palms span the width of my back as though each finger of his has to be in contact with me.
I vaguely hear Aidan say something about pancakes and then he leaves the room with a grin on his face. My attention is immediately back on Grayson. He is singing to me, bringing me tighter into his arms, his mouth close to my temple. Pinpricks of cold awareness trail up and down my back and arms. I close my eyes, clutching him to me; the front of me pressed to him. It isn't enough. Overwhelming emotion washes over me like the hands of regret.
“Can I tell you something?” he whispers by my ear as the song ends.
I whisper back, “Do I want you to tell me something?”
His lips smile against my forehead. “Does that ever matter?”
Pulling back, I look into eyes that have loved me and haunted me. “Not usually.” I smile.
Grayson brings his mouth close to mine, never releasing my gaze, and tells me, “You weren't my first love.” He pauses and my heart cracks at his declaration. “You were my only love.” And it is repaired and whole just as quickly.

Review

Two years after Lily broke Grayson's heart and pushed him to pursue a music career in sunny California, he's back. Faced with the reality of the attraction and longing they still feel for each other, they have to decide whether a second chance is worth fighting for.
FYI, it totally is.

Lily was devastated when she pushed Grayson to leave, but she did it for him. Two years later and she has subconsciously let Grayson's loss define her and rule her decisions. Gone is the carefree girl of the past who fought for what she wanted, but Lily wants that girl back. Lily is a very relatable character, and I loved being able to see the depth of the pain she has from breaking up with Grayson. She sacrificed their love for his future, but she still misses and loves him.
Grayson has tried to get over Lily but she has a permanent claim on his heart. Whilst Grayson might be more adept at hiding his emotions than he was before he left for California, Lily is still able to bring out the old Grayson.

This is a great sequel to Incomplete and definitely worth the wait. Lindy Zart's emotive writing style makes you feel everything the characters are feeling and she does a remarkable job of it. I swear I was almost crying at work! It's so obvious to the reader that Grayson and Lily are meant to be together, but they have to fight for their second chance at love.
I loved the way Grayson and Lily's story ended and I'm hoping this isn't the last we've seen from these characters!
