Goodbye, with Love. by Niquel Review Blitz

Title: Goodbye, with Love.
By: Niquel
Publication Date: January 15, 2016
Genre: YA/Coming of Age Romance
Have you ever wished you could have something so bad, even though you knew it was forbidden? Jonathan Gates was just that—forbidden. He was everything I could ever want in a man: charming, a great listener, open-minded, and funny. It also didn't hurt that he was easy on the eyes. We'd been through a lot together: breakups, makeups, firsts, lasts, and anything else you can imagine. I was once told he was my soul mate, but I refused to believe that. I didn't want to love him. I didn't want to fall for him because...he was my best friend! But I did, and I fell for him hard. I was in love with my best friend, and it was time he knew how I really felt.

Age: Twenty Journal Entry: Why does this keep happening to me? Dear Journal, Why does this keep happening to me? Why is it that every single time he leaves I’m completely devastated and unable to fully recover, but the minute he comes back to me it’s like nothing ever happened? It’s like my heart is playing a cruel joke on me and picks back up where things left off. He is the only person that could affect me deep down in my core and it scares me. It makes me feel like he is the only person I truly belong to, and maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if he’d stop breaking my heart. If he could see through my eyes, just once, maybe he wouldn’t hurt me again. Maybe he wouldn’t toy with me, and maybe he’d believe that we were soul mates. When Sarah told me that all those years ago, I laughed; I didn’t believe in it then, but I’m convinced now. There has to be some fate or strong pull from the universe that’s destined us to be together, and if this was the sign to wake us both up to smell the roses, then I needed more time before I’d accept it. Time. I’ll give you time, Johnny, but you’ll have to work for it. -Michelle

Good-bye, with Love.Good-bye, with Love. by Niquel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Normally I'm not into reading books mostly based in high school. Let's be honest, I'm way over the age to enjoy young kids falling in love. This one however got my attention from the blurb. When I started this book, I didn't know what to think but I was pleasantly surprised with how everything turned out.
Michelle or Mickey as her friends called her met Johnny at a very trying time in life. Johnny became the lifeline she needed to fight this awful disease.. He stood by her side and comforted her when she needed it. He became her best friend until right before high school. Johnny had family issues come up and it separated them. It nearly destroyed Mickey but she fought through it. Once high school started, Mickey was determined to get back her first love, softball and rocked it. Johnny on the other hand, developed the gym and found a passion in that. Both tried to move on but couldn't ignore the ache in their hearts for each other. As time went by, their love never died but things always kept getting in the way. Finally fate steps and they are together. This book turned out to be the exactly right book I needed to read. It wasn't heavy with sex like most books I read and I so needed that right now. I highly enjoyed this book and the sweetness it bought with it.
