"One universe, nine planets, 204 countries, 809 islands and 7 seas, and I had the privilege of meeting you.” –Unknown

When Tessa Talman meets Simon Fremont for the first time, not only is she attracted to him, she’s intrigued by how different their lives are. He’s a dedicated scientist, practical, pragmatic, and grounded—while she’s a head-in-the-clouds romance author. As their relationship grows, they agree to meet in places around the world, while continuing to live on opposite sides of the globe.

Though their feelings for each other deepen, their priorities remain the same. Simon is in a hurry to be financially sound and settle down, but Tessa is enjoying her freedom and newfound success. Neither is willing to give in, but as each goodbye gets harder, Tessa begins to wonder whether fame is the path to happiness, or if she has everything she needs in Simon.

Just as Tessa finds the courage to go after her own happily ever after, the unthinkable happens, separating them in ways they never imagined.

To move forward, she must let go of the past, and determine once and for all if love is truly more powerful than the pain of goodbye.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

This book left me in tears! Oh no! I was in tears, because of all the emotions flowing throughout the story. This love story spanned the globe with a globetrotting romance author and an organized businessman/scientist. Anyways, a chance meeting on an airplane started it all. It was also a sweet story of these complete opposites coming together with each "goodbye."

Although I am new to this author, I enjoyed reading this story. I fell in love her characters, because they were complex with their personalities and their emotions. But, when a traumatic event hits them in the "heart," their love is tested. The pain runs so deep that it "broke" these characters. Can their love overcome? That is the question, right?!? That's where turning the pages to the end will answer that question. I thought it was well worth the read.

Eight Goodbyes is a gripping and emotional romance that ran deep in the heart and tested it. It would be difficult to not feel for them as you read along their travels and their reunions. Well, I sure was an emotional mess after turning the last page. Ha!
