Reader’s Digest May book club pick

One of New York Post’s “best new books to read”

One of Reader’s Digest’s 32 Best Beach Reads for the Perfect Escape

“Will have you swooning, crying, and turning the pages late into the night…. Truly heart-rending.” —Sophie Cousens, author of Just Haven’t Met You Yet

“Even while her novel was breaking my heart into tiny pieces, I couldn’t put it down. Emotional and riveting, this is a story of big secrets, and even bigger love.” —Jill Santopolo, author of The Light We Lost

“A tightly-paced blend of angst and joy and hope. Perfect from start to finish. I absolutely adored this book!” Christina Lauren, author of The Unhoneymooners

“Emotional, angsty, and utterly romantic. I was rooting so hard for these characters to get the happy ending they deserved. This story will have you wiping away tears one moment, and smiling dreamily the next.” –Mia Sheridan, author of Archer’s Voice and Travis

“Paige Toon writes such beautiful, emotional love stories. I adored Only Love Can Hurt Like This—it swept me away to the gorgeous Wetherill Farm and I fell in love with Wren and Anders.”Beth O’Leary, author of The Flatshare and The Road Trip

“So unique and moving. I adored every lovely word!” —Josie Silver, author of One Day in December

“In this monumentally moving story (keep the tissues at hand) of two lovers kept apart by tragic secrets, Toon urges us to risk everything, to never play it safe when it comes to the heart, and to know that caring is always, always, worth the cost.” —Caroline Leavitt, author of Pictures of You and With or Without You

“A delicious, slow burn love story that hit me in parts of my heart I didn’t even know I had. Full of original and complex characters, it left me with the wonderful feeling that love this real can make anything possible.”—Annabel Monaghan, author of Nora Goes Off Script

“What a beautiful, lovely tearjerker of a book. This story will stay with me.” —Lizzy Dent, author of The Summer Job and The Setup

“Compulsively page-turning, wildly romantic and beautifully heartbreaking. I stayed up all night and inhaled it in one big gulp. A totally brilliant read—I could not love it more.”—Emily Stone, author of Always in December

“Emotional.” –Publishers Weekly

“Oh my GOD. This book! Only Paige Toon can make me believe in the power of love this way….It has everything: family, love, secrets, sexy descriptions of brooding, hot men…just sublime.” —Laura Jane Williams, author of Our Stop and The Love Square

“Remarkably romantic and emotional, written by one of the only writers who can make me cry!” —Lia Louis, author of Eight Perfect Hours

“A beautiful love story that simmers in such a heart-warming and heart-breaking way. I sobbed!” —Giovanna Fletcher, author of Eve of Man
