Review for Loosing Me Finding You by Natalie Ward (Spoilers)

Loosing Me Finding You by Natalie Ward

The 29th of February, the day I was born.

When I wake up on this day, I’m in a different city, with a different life and no memory of the lives I had before this one. Today is the tenth time this has happened to me. The tenth time I’ve had to figure out where the hell I am. The tenth time I’ve had to try and work out who the hell I am. This is the tenth alteration of the person I am. Each of us has had different lives, different backgrounds and different families. But there’s always been one constant.


He’s the reason I keep doing this. He’s the reason I spend four years searching. If I’m lucky, I’ll get the trigger and find him quickly and we can spend those four years together before I disappear again. If I’m not, we might get a year, a month or even just a day. Once we got nothing, but that was a choice. 

And every time it happens, he patiently waits for me. He says that every time I come back to him, it’s like falling in love with me all over again. I say that every time I come back, I fall even more in love with him than before.

It scares me that one day I won't be able to find him at all, because when that day comes, I'm not sure I'll want to keep going. He is my strength, my protector, my one and only constant.

I love him.
He loves me.
But every four years, I lose myself. 
And every four years, I have to find him.
This is our story.

We human beings are naturally curious creatures. Our curiosity and the constant need to know things is what has led us to progress.
Nope this is not a lecture, I do have a point.

This book was good, it had its "Aww.." moments, and it was sweet, but what bugged me to no end is that how can you wake up in a new life every leap year and when you finally get back your memory of what actually happened and all of your previous lives, HOW CAN YOU NOT QUESTION IT?!?!

I mean how can one person not want to know why it happened, how it happened??? I cannot, cannot accept that because you desperately want to find and get back with the one you love, you will not question why or how things, impossible things are happening to you.

Maybe it was because I was so excited to read this book, maybe I had set the bar of expectations too high for this book, maybe because I'm a naturally curious person, I just wanted an explanation.... :/

*Sigh* I hate leaving reviews like this but I just had to vent!

I'd recommend it to those who do not mind knowing why and how and just want a nice romantic read...
