*** Release Blitz & Review *** The Mind by Kate Stewart

Blog Promo Banner




We fell in love in a lightning strike, a sudden anomaly in a sea of lost people.
He knew right away, yet I was hesitant. I could have never prepared myself for a love like ours.
No one could.

As a child, I had conjured an amazing story in my mind. It was a story I could retell about a man that would move me like no other; a story about the way we met and how he had swept me off my feet. But, the ending to that fairytale was so far from the reality.

No one will want to hear that story now, but for Grant, I will always tell it.

My Review

The Mind was a story that I knew the ending before I ever started the beginning since I read The Fall. And yet my heart was ripped open and stuffed full in the most perfectly painful yet beautiful way. This was an absolutely stunning story of two people who completely embody the idea of soul mates and meant to be's. 

Grant is longing for something more. Ever since childhood, he's been searching for something. When he spots Rose on campus sitting under a tree oblivious to the world around her, he feels it. The spark. The electricity. The connection. Grants sets about relentlessly pursing Rose until she admits she feels it too. And from the start she does. Of course she's not completely certain about a guy she's never seen before professing that he is going to marry her, but eventually she can not longer deny that love at first sight is real and true and happening to her. 

As the novella progresses Rose and Grant get to know each other and fall further in love with each passing minute. Even with hurtful pasts, Rose and Grant conquer and overcome everything in their way so that they can make their happily ever after happen. But life isn't linear and either is the future that Rose and Grant dreamed. 

Once again Kate Stewart absolutely slayed me. Her writing is poignant and passionate. She has the ability to pull me into her stories so that I can't feel time passing nor can I separate myself from the characters. That's why I am always affected. Her beautiful story telling allows me to live inside her words.

The Mind is an emotional journey I expected but could never really anticipate. For such a short read, I experienced a full range of emotions. I laughed out loud throughout the first half of this book. I loved Grant and his crazy ways of getting Rose to fall for him. And I loved Rose and her ability to stick up for herself but to be able to be open to Grant in exactly the way he needed. Of course eventually my stomach started to churn because I knew, I knew, what was coming and my emotions were all over the place. When the ugly cries hit, they hit hard and fast. Then just when I thought I was done crying, an unexpected moment came up and I was hit with a punch to my heart once again. As Grant and Rose's story wrapped up, it was a timeless tale of love and longing. Just writing this review I'm getting emotional all over again. I literally have to keep blinking so tears don't fall. 

This is a story in which Rose says, "No one will want to hear that story now, but for Grant, I will always tell it." It's a story that deserves to be told. And it's a story that needs to be read. Grant and Rose will forever have a special spot in my heart but I cannot wait for The Heart. 

I would very much recommend reading The Fall before diving into this story. While the primary focus of The Fall is on Rose's sister, Dallas, Rose and Grant's story starts here and follows in The Mind.
