Ever had a book that moved you to the core? Ever had a book that simply made your heart bleed out with emotions. Impressions of You is a debut book by Christopher Harlan that simply told a beautiful story of love, pain and letting go. It was a memorable and a beautiful written story that I simply could not get enough of. I enjoyed reading it immensely.
Impressions of You is the story of Mia, special education teacher who meets Wesley, a wealthy man with a painful past and rocked by personal issues. They meet at an unlikely place and they form an attraction for each other. I went in blind with this book. I did not know what it was about or even who the characters were but I saw the title of the story and I just had to read this story. I was not disappointed at all. Impression of You was a story like no other. It was different and unique. It screamed originality which pulled me to the story. I did not expect at all the situations in this book to be so profound but I was left with a sense of contentment while I was reading this story. Christopher Harlan wrote a book that had real issues which made it so captivating to me. In a way, it gave the story such a different edge and I liked that. I was able to follow the story so well without it being complicated at all. Like I said, it had a realism that spoke so much volumes which carried it to a different stratosphere. Apart from realism, there was so much heart in the story that made me swoon and I feel like the author really brought the right feels at the right time. Plus he did not go overboard with the sex scenes and focused on the plot which got me so into it. The sex scenes were an added bonus lol. They were hot I tell you and I had to fan myself because they had a lot of passion. Impressions of You had angst and emotions that seeped out that I became so moved and deeply rooted to the story. I even got a bit emotional. It was definitely an emotional masterpiece in my eyes.
I loved the characters. Having a great chemistry between characters elevates a story and gives an extra and special dynamic. There was amazing chemistry between Wesley and Mia that I found myself gravitating a lot to them. They both had a deeper connection that was neither rushed nor forced. I liked Mia. She was helpful , caring and loving. It was her insecurities that made me like her more. She had real feelings like I do and insecurities about herself that I do sometimes. This made her more relatable to most women like me. She was someone I could be friends with. Loved her sarcasm, banter and sense of humor that made her such a likable character. There was balance to her strong side and her vulnerable side. Wesley was a different hero. I am used to alpha and dominant heroes in books but Wesley was so different in terms of he was humble. He was not cocky or full of himself. I loved that he had real problems. He did not need to be perfect. That one flaw he had made me swoon and that it made him more real.
Impression of You definitely left a lasting impression on me and also gained me a new author that I will definitely be following. I can't wait what the author comes up with next
