One universe, nine planets, 204 countries, 809 islands and 7 seas, and I had the privilege of meeting you.” –Unknown

When Tessa Talman meets Simon Fremont for the first time, not only is she attracted to him, she’s intrigued by how different their lives are. He’s a dedicated scientist, practical, pragmatic, and grounded—while she’s a head-in-the-clouds romance author. As their relationship grows, they agree to meet in places around the world, while continuing to live on opposite sides of the globe.

Though their feelings for each other deepen, their priorities remain the same. Simon is in a hurry to be financially sound and settle down, but Tessa is enjoying her freedom and newfound success. Neither is willing to give in, but as each goodbye gets harder, Tessa begins to wonder whether fame is the path to happiness, or if she has everything she needs in Simon.

Just as Tessa finds the courage to go after her own happily ever after, the unthinkable happens, separating them in ways they never imagined.

To move forward, she must let go of the past, and determine once and for all if love is truly more powerful than the pain of goodbye.

This book took my breath away!

From start to finish I was drawn in by the characters and their storylines, if you are looking for a book with all the feels then this is the one you want.

Eight Goodbyes is a brilliant example of what life can really be like, from the fast paced dramas to the simple enjoyments and it gives way to something that I think many of us forget ... that life can change in an instant.

Time gets away from us without us even realising and what Tessa and Simon begin to build is something refreshing, unexpected and every single moment of their blossoming relationship really seduced me as a reader, I wanted them to have more moments and I was left with my fingers crossed throughout hoping for a happy ending, reading through tears at times.

A love story unlike an others I've read, emotional and at times heartbreaking, this novel makes you appreciate life!


The whirlwind of book signings and private fan functions left her constantly exhausted. This was all new to her, and the past year had been too hectic. New York was the last stop in this year’s spring tour. Smile, laugh, get your A - game on. There’s nothing more exhausting than sitting at a table, four hours a day, for three days straight. But the satisfaction of seeing her words come to life in the hearts and minds of complete strangers kept her going. There was nothing better than meeting new people from all walks of life and from every place in the world. People who shared your feelings and understood your messages, who ceased becoming strangers and turned into friends.
“You say you hate it, but you do it every single time,” her best friend had said. Riley with the flowing black hair, shiny olive skin and the perfect collection of make-up. The same Riley who had the heart of Tessa’s older brother Jacob wrapped around her finger.
“I know,” Tessa had said while sitting on a bench outside the Soul Cycle on Wacker Drive just two weeks before. “My agent insists I do at least four this year. It’s all so unexpected. I don’t think we know how to deal with it yet.”
“What? Hitting the bestseller list?”


I wish I could bottle up the feelings this novel gave me to revisit constantly. Though this is a seemingly simple story about two lovers making their own rules for their relationship, it dives even further by conveying important messages about life and love. ~ 5171 Miles Book Blog

Her magical penmanship has given this standalone a real-life feel and undoubtedly while you're reading, all the emotions will seduce you. Embrace them and every single moment of this love story. You won't ever regret it. ~ Kindle Friends Forever

My emotions flowed freely as I read this beautiful and descriptive tale. From tears free falling to my heart soaring, I was taken on a journey of two souls chasing each other to the four corners of the world. ~ For The Love Of Reading

Eight Goodbyes is a spectacular contemporary love story. I would dare say, one of the best that I've read in 2018. ~ Goodreads Review
