Anyone can fall in love. But not everyone can stay there.
Fisher and Ivy have been an item for all of nineteen days. Both of them have been in relationships before, and, this time, around, they know something is different—they are meant to be together. The fact that they know little else about each other is a minor detail.
But over the next year, a time in which their lives are irrevocably altered, Fisher and Ivy discover that falling in love is one thing—and staying there is an entirely different story.
The Two of Us is a charming, honest, laugh-out-loud novel about life, love, and the importance of taking neither one for granted.
I loved this unconventional love story of Fisher and Ivy who after only nineteen days together are thrown into a lifetime of emotions and circumstances that would put a strain on any relationship. We met them as they spent their early days in a love-induced a coma that would be shattered as soon as they ventured out and their love is revealed to others in the outside world. The cracks were soon exposed on their first road trip to meet Fisher’s family when they realized they didn’t even know the basics about each other. While they didn’t take the time to know each other they do know that they fit, they belong together no bones about it.
We see their relationship through the highs and lows and the one thing that brings them their greatest joy will also be the one thing that could break them. In The Two of Us, we learn that love is indeed worth it all, that no matter what life hands you there will be rewards in the end. Also, that love doesn’t have a time table or rules that there is no right way to fall in love. Sometimes we fall fast and deep and with someone, we never thought possible, that despite differences it’s those differences that make us fit together like the greatest puzzle in life.
I laughed and cried and rooted for these two as if I knew them personally. Fisher and Ivy taught me to be open to the impossible and to always to open to love even in the most impossible of possibilities. I highly recommend this read for anyone who has been a fool when it comes to love but especially to those who are guarded when it comes to giving their hearts. You can’t love if you aren’t fully open to all that it brings that means the good and the bad. Trust me the good will always out weight the bad. Life always has a greater plan than anything we could ever imagine, so always be open you never know when or where your soulmate might be.
