Always

51NOQvZeyNL._SX334_BO1,204,203,200_Always, by Sarah Jio, was a bit of a disappointment. The idea was intriguing, but the writing was both weak and predictable. When we begin the story, Kailey and her fiance are enjoying a lovely dinner at one of Seattle’s best restaurants. Kailey seems to have it all – a job that she loves as a journalist and a seemingly perfect guy. After dinner, however, Kailey sees a homeless man who she realizes is the love of her life, Cade McAllister. Ten years earlier (the story is told in alternating chapters between 2008 and 1998) when Cade and Kailey met, the connection was intense. But, Cade mysteriously disappeared, leaving her devastated. Once she has seen him, she can’t let go and needs to figure out how he became homeless and unable to remember her. I really wanted to like this book, but the writing just didn’t hold up. I only finished it to find out what happened to Cade.
