Still Human by Kerry Heavens

Danny and Liv are back...

Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him because she ran without a word when she saw their future mapped out before her. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her and this time he doesn’t think he can move on.

Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her because he broke her heart in the worst possible way, right when things were falling into place. She knows she will never love anyone like she loves him and this time she doesn’t think she can move on.

They needed a second chance because they just weren’t ready for their first, but when events changed everything between them, they discovered they were just human after all. Now Liv and Danny have to find a way to survive being hurt by each other. 

They doubted, they underestimated and they did believe the worst, but only because they were too young the first time and too vulnerable the second time. But now they have changed and if they are not the same, surely things can only turn out differently?

So when the first book ended like it did, I did expect that this book was going to start off being quite a bit sad. A bit?! Right. I was on a high reading the first book only to come crashing loudly back down to the ground. You have favorite books and then you have favorite characters. Liv and Danny were fast becoming mine. These two were just beautiful to read together.

And somehow, as KH maintains the natural prose and relaxed yet intense storytelling, she took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. From the feeling of despair to the high of highs, this second book in this series had me crying in most parts of it. Either that or I would have just imploded! At the risk of not giving away any spoilers, I just would like to say that their wedding was a happy cryfest. I just loved everything about it. Sniff. I want someone to put ointment on my new inks, too. Gaaawd.

I don't think I have ever described a book as being generous. But I guess I will do so in this case. Apropos to the title, there were a lot of human emotions in betweens these pages. An influx of amazing secondary characters that made me all smiley. An extended epilogue? I cannot complain at all. I was glad I set aside my Sunday for these two.

Final verdict: 10/10. The awesome-est of great reads. Must read.
