FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!
Freya Barker always writes an incredible story. Each book of hers I’ve read has been beyond amazing, but A Change Of Pace just may be one of her best books ever. Every book she writes draws me in and steals my heart but there was something absolutely magical about the way this book hooked me deeper than ever before. I just can’t even begin to explain how much this book not only captivated me but dug deep into my heart. There is something uniquely special about Freddy, Newt, and all the amazing characters in this story that not only grabbed me but made me fall completely in love.
Of course there’s a heart pounding romance here. Newt and Freddy made for an amazing couple with a deeply moving and extremely sweet romance. But there’s so much more in their story than just their incredible love. However I’ll start there with my unending list of things I loved in A Change Of Pace. Freya Barker has a wonderful talent in writing couples that have an incredibly deep connection that is real and true to life but without any unnecessary drama.
Her couples being more mature is one of the things I love most in her writing. I’m not talking drama free here. Both Newt and Freddy are amazingly real characters and life always comes with drama, plus lets be real here a little drama makes it fun, but these two don’t have the ever present in the genre unnecessary drama. And when life knocks them down these two come together becoming even stronger for it. All and all I adored them #FreddyAndNewtForever
Take that incredible romance and toss it with a beautiful young lady in the form of Newt’s daughter (that’s right folks! Single dad alert!) Millie was an outstandingly beautiful character. I related so much to this young girl because I was very much once a young girl like her. Freya beautifully and honestly detailed the feelings and turmoil Millie had in a way that more than once brought me to tears. Much like Millie and Freddy my love of animals and the strong bonds I formed with them helped me many times throughout my life and I absolutely loved what a huge part they played in this book.
To sum it up, A Change Of Pace is pure beauty. I will forever cherish and go back to read this book just to feel the magic it brought me. A truly emotional read, this book makes you FEEL while you become lost to the words in a way that is completely breathtaking.
