MY REVIEW

"I whisper, 'This is us,' and he whispers back, 'Always.'

Congrats to you, Dylan Allen! Thanks to your fabulous writing, amazing characters, and witty and heartfelt dialogue, I found it easy to fall in love with Dean and Milly. Through flashbacks of the two, we were pleasantly witnessing their journey through young love. You even had my kids looking at me like I was crazy because I screamed aloud when these two were reunited.
"My heart feels so full, joy leaks from my eyes."

"He wanted me, which makes me feel like I won the lottery."

Thank you for the closure. After finishing Rise, I had quite a few unanswered questions, especially regarding Milly's father and his disappearance. So thanks for clearing those right up. I loved the way it was handled and enjoyed the range of emotions explored with it. The evolution of Dean and Milly's relationship was so beautiful. I loved how supportive, caring, and trusting they were of one another. And how they both just knew that they didn't want to EVER live without the other ever again.
"Then I remember I haven't really been alone since I was sixteen years old. Because that's when Millicent Hassan crawled into my heart, staked her claim on it, and never let go." - Dean

"I now without a doubt that as long as he draws breaths, Dean is the only person I want to navigate through this messy journey we call life with." - Milly

Full disclosure: I wasn't a fan of how often Milly snapped at Dean. Mostly without cause. It drove me nuts. As well as they knew each other and as close as they were, it was unwarranted. Especially because as far as I could tell, she never did that to her husband, who in so many words couldn't compare to Dean. Why was she so blatantly hurtful to the man she loved for more than a decade? Me? I would have clapped back LOL.

If you're looking for a story full of steam, warmth and feels, I can't recommend REMEMBER enough. I may be reaching here, but I swear there's a story brewing with Lilly and I for one am looking forward to it.
