Till It Arrives is inspired by Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner’s Save the Date feature. Sometimes I read books that are not released anytime soon, but I want to share some of my feelings on the book right away, so Till It Arrives is born! (It also allows me to read books that appear later in my schedule, so that’s awesome too.) Since I don’t usually use GIFs in my reviews, I thought I’ll use plenty of GIFs to describe my feelings for the book I’m talking about in this feature!
After Quinn’s boyfriend, Trent, dies in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs as part of her mourning process. When the recipient of Trent’s heart remains silent, she secretly goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas, hoping to find peace once and for all.
If only it were that easy. What starts as an accidental run-in with Colton quickly becomes an undeniable attraction. She doesn’t want to give in to it – especially since he has no idea how they’re connected – though it’s the first time in months Quinn has felt happy again. But no matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost…and all that remains at stake.
First Sentence: I don’t know how I knew, when the sirens woke me just before dawn, that they were for him.
