Ten Years: The most heartwarming and gripping love story you’ll read this year!
About this deal
It's one of those books that grab you from the start, the kind you can't stop reading till the end and the kind that stays with you for a long time. I stayed up till 2 AM, to finish this book! I couldn’t put it down from the second I started reading it! It’s not your typical romance story, which made me love it even more. The writer did such an amazing job describing the characters emotions, that I felt myself crying when I didn’t think I should be. I truly felt like I was in the story. Heartbreaking yet beautiful, this is definitely a must read! I am looking forward to reading more from this author! An emotional read with a very sad start but develops beautifully with lots of laugh out loud moments.
Just WOW. I'm not sure what I was expecting - but Ten Years exceeded my expectations and then some.

The highlight of the book for me was the character of Becca, an aspiring but largely unsuccessful actor, who I loved. I totally believed in her character, good and bad (she definitely has flaws, pretty large ones in fac) and she was hugely entertaining to read about. About the Book ‘Some days I feel like I’ve lived more than one lifetime, so, couldn’t we be right for each other this time around?’
He’d loved Ally and his heart broke when she died, but after his immediate free fall, he’d worked hard to re-establish himself, mend his heart and live again. He could remember her, he could miss her, but he couldn’t see the value in shaping his life around her. Setting his life in stone for her wouldn’t be a life well-lived.” Becca and Charlie have always had two things in common: their general dislike of each other, and their love for Ally. Becca’s lifelong best friend and Charlie’s fiancé, Ally has bound the two reluctantly together for years. But then Ally dies. And the two plan to go their separate ways forever - to handle their grief themselves without ever having to see each other again.personally, i wouldn't classify this book as a romance, no matter what the synopsis says. the romance only happened around the 75% mark, meaning the development of it was quite rushed in my opinion. if the characters had met more than a couple times a year it would've been a bit more believable, but as it stands, it's only there because They Were Meant To Be™, never mind the 10 years of mutual hatred and the fact that most of their meetings ended in a fight. I honestly loved this novel. It's not an easy read. It's not all that fun, but it's raw and real and very angsty and dramatic and I'm here for it.
Such a warm, lovely read with two characters you're desperately rooting for' Cesca Major, author of Maybe Next Time There’s some really tender moments which show the softer and vulnerable side of both Becca and Charlie.Given their mutual enmnity, the pair decide to space out the activities to one per year. Ally - forever the planner and organiser, was the glue that held them together after they all met at university. Over the ten years we see how grief affects both of them in different ways. Charlie, the 'yes man' who left his decision making to Ally is left directionless. While spiky Becca the actress, continues to struggle in dead end jobs hoping for her big break, misses her big cheerleader in Ally. Ally was her family. I loved watching Becca and Charlie grow into themselves and through their grief, as well as watch their relationship change from one of distrust and disdain to one of genuine friendship and respect for each other.
