Rory is a girl’s just wanna have fun type of girl. Falling in love with someone is the farthest thing from her mind. Casual sex is simply that, casual sex. She’s a guy’s girl, as in, she hangs out with her guy friends as if she were just one of the guys. It isn’t that she doesn’t believe in love, she doesn’t really care for it. If one day true love knocks on her door, she wouldn’t know what to do with it. Yes. There she is: fun, sweet, loving and caring Rory for you.
Sam.. aawww Sam! He’s a teddy bear in my mind. A BIG teddy bear. Throughout the story I wanted to reach out, and hug him. He’s broken hearted. He loved; still loves his deceased wife. He’s not ready to let go, or thinks he isn’t until he meets Rory. His heart is shattered, he wasn’t the best husband he could’ve been, and by the time he tried to make it up, it was already too late, his wife had moved on. The guilt is eating him inside out. Then he stumbles upon Rory, and needless to say she rocks his boat.
The love letters Sam writes for his wife telling her everything he never had a chance to, and the love quotes/poetry on the billboards made me teary eyed.
Rory’s ways help Sam accept what he can’t fix and be OK with moving on. Sam’s let’s-not-rush ways take Rory for a ride in the TRUE LOVE HIGHWAY.
I had never read anything by Cari Quinn before, and now, I am a new fan. Heart Signs made me aawww so many times I lost count. It’s that great!
