#BookReview: The Things We Leave Unfinished by @RebeccaYarros @Netgalley @EntangledPub

Synopsis: Twenty-eight-year-old Georgia Stanton has to start over after she gave up almost everything in a brutal divorce—the New York house, the friends, and her pride. Now back home at her late great-grandmother’s estate in Colorado, she finds herself face-to-face with Noah Harrison, the bestselling author of a million books where the cover is always people nearly kissing. He’s just as arrogant in person as in interviews, and she’ll be damned if the good-looking writer of love stories thinks he’s the one to finish her grandmother’s final novel…even if the publisher swears he’s the perfect fit.

Noah is at the pinnacle of his career. With book and movie deals galore, there isn’t much the “golden boy” of modern fiction hasn’t accomplished. But he can’t walk away from what might be the best book of the century—the one his idol, Scarlett Stanton, left unfinished. Coming up with a fitting ending for the legendary author is one thing, but dealing with her beautiful, stubborn, cynical great-granddaughter, Georgia, is quite another. 

But as they read Scarlett’s words in both the manuscript and her box of letters, they start to realize why Scarlett never finished the book—it’s based on her real-life romance with a World War II pilot, and the ending isn’t a happy one. Georgia knows all too well that love never works out, and while the chemistry and connection between her and Noah is undeniable, she’s as determined as ever to learn from her great-grandmother’s mistakes—even if it means destroying Noah’s career.

Told in alternating timelines, THE THINGS WE LEAVE UNFINISHED examines the risks we take for love, the scars too deep to heal, and the endings we can’t bring ourselves to see coming.

My Review:  
OMG, I simply could not put this book down once I started. I typically don't like stories that bounce back and forth between two different time lines, however Rebecca Yarros made the transitions so seamless that I hardly noticed them. I was immediately drawn to all of the characters, but especially Georgia. Her first interaction with Noakes (and many others afterward) had me cracking up laughing. The dual like ve stories between Georgia and Noah and Scarlett and Jamison were both breathtaking and heartbreaking. There were definitely tears shed several times over their stories. The twist at the end definitely surprised me and caused all sorts of emotion. For anyone who is a fan of epic love stories, sacrifice, and the occasional steamy sex scene this is a must read.
