Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks

My rating: 5 stars

“Every couple needs to argue now and then. Just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

“She wasnt exactly sure when it happened. Or even when it started. All she knew for sure was that right here and now, she was falling hard and she could only pray that he was feeling the same way.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

“Love doesn’t mean anything if you’re not willing to make a commitment, and you have to think not only about what you want, but about what he wants. Not just now, but in the future.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

“Deep in her heart, she wasn’t sure she deserved to be happy, nor did she believe that she was worthy of someone who seemed…normal.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

“I’ve come to believe that in everyone’s life, there’s one undeniable moment of change, a set of circumstances that suddenly alters everything.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

“…nothing wonderful lasted forever. Joy was as fleeting as a shooting star that crossed the evening sky, ready to blink out at any moment.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

“If you love Alex now, then love him forever. Make him laugh again, and cherish the time you spend together. Take walks and ride your bikes, curl up on the couch and watch movies beneath a blanket. Make him breakfast, but don’t spoil him. Let him make breakfast for you as well, so he can show you he thinks you’re special. Kiss him and make love to him and consider yourself lucky for having met him, for he’s the kind of man who’ll prove you right.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

“‎When she looked up at him, it was suddenly easy for her to imagine that her fears were pointless. That he would love her no matter what she told him, and that he was the kind of man who loved her already and would love her forever.”
Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven

I loved the relationship between Alex and Katie. I liked how the book had a glimpse into Katie’s past abusive marriage and helped show why Katie is trying to seclude herself  in Southport and why it means so much that she trusted Alex anyway and was willing to open herself up to him. I loved the suspense in the story , I’m not normally a Nicholas Sparks fan. I loved how sweet and gentle Alex was and what a big heart he has.Katie is able to settle down and feel secure in Southport and then she’s blindsided when Kevin finds her and trys to take revenge for leaving him. The ending was great and there was a lot of tear jerker moments.
