So We Said Goodbye – A Contemporary Romance Novel With Peppy Twists So We Said Goodbye by Rama Marinov-Cohen is a contemporary romance novel with peppy twists. This is a different kind of love story and has an unexpected ending. The book is about the first love that never dies. The young love that calls back at a later stage of life. The moment young love reunites after a long gap, it brings in passionate memories. That becomes a life-changing factor. It is like fighting your present with your bitter past that tries to become sweet. The story is about Yaron and his childhood sweetheart Aya. It reflects that you never forget your childhood love even when you turn fifty. Probably childhood memories are so deep rooted that they stay forever till the end. Yaron’s love story with his childhood girlfriend Aya ends when he turns twenty. He was betrayed when Aya walked out of his life and their love story comes to an end. But that was probably not the end. That was a pause that lasted for thirty years. When Yaron turns fifty, he gets a call from Aya. A call that he had never expected in his life once his heart got broken almost thirty years back. Both are married by now. Then why Aya calls Yaron? Why Yaron drifted away back to his memory lane? Why couldn't he refuse when she asked for a meeting? So We Said Goodbye by Rama Marinov-Cohen is a mindboggling love story. It stirs Yaron’s present with his past. I liked the way Yaron is forced to unwind his memories with Aya. Even after a long time after their love shattered, he was never able to forget her. Probably it just got buried under a pile of years. Some memories that faded away got uncluttered and revived back in the spur of a moment. There were many questions that came to my mind while reading this love story. Is it really compelling to forget your past love, especially the first one? Are you never able to shred off your past? Although both of them have their individual life and are spending a married life for betterment but still it seems there is a gap in their life that they are not able to fill. Otherwise, the unsuccessful love of past would never try to peep in so vigorously. I liked the way story ends in such a fabulous and unexpected manner. You will have to digest the story to understand the crux and move to its end. It reflects that each moment spent in the youth writes the moment of your future. The story has a thrill imbibed in it in a classical manner. The story of So We Said Goodbye by Rama Marinov-Cohen is in a way about wisdom that you acquire with each passing year. It talks about undying love. It talks about the urge to keep your hopes alive in life. I would rate this book as 4 on a scale of 5. If you really love emotional, touchy, contemporary love stories, then you must read this book. You will definitely find the peppy twists in the story that touch your heart so deeply.

    I read this book on my Kindle. I started to read it when I was questioning some things in my life and I didn’t know what the book was about but the title made me imagine…and I was so right. This book made me realize so many things and at the end of it I feel like I…matured a bit more! I understand so much better some things now, I feel like after so many years, I was finally able to move on with my life. Aya and Uri, Yaron and Hagar. Two couples, so different and yet connected. The story basical I read this book on my Kindle. I started to read it when I was questioning some things in my life and I didn’t know what the book was about but the title made me imagine…and I was so right. This book made me realize so many things and at the end of it I feel like I…matured a bit more! I understand so much better some things now, I feel like after so many years, I was finally able to move on with my life. Aya and Uri, Yaron and Hagar. Two couples, so different and yet connected. The story basically starts because Aya, even though she lives a fulfilling life, was not able to forget her first love. She decides to contact Yaron and from that point on she is obsessing over him. Her husband, Uri, is so understanding just because he loves her so much and he is trying to show her support and to help her move on from her past. What she doesn’t know is that her actions harm so much Yaron’s wife, Hagar, which can’t help but compare herself to Aya. The writing looks like journal entries and each character gets a chance to explain their part in the story. At times is hard to follow, I find that when Aya is sharing her side, she is somehow delusional and thinks that they could probably live together…all four of them…happily ever after. The book ending is strange. Yeah…I don’t know what to say because I didn’t really understand where is everybody standing by the end. It could be that they were finally friends (all four) or that Aya was simply not able to move on from Yaron and she will always think about him even though she is married with Uri. I don’t know! ☺️ I have no idea and it is frustrating a bit, because I was looking forward to have an answer, to finally know what happens with these two couples. This book made me realize something though. No matter what you felt in your past, no matter how strong your love for someone else was in the past, one thing is for sure: You must STOP living in the past and forget all your past loves! If it didn’t work then, it would never work now! ☺️ So, once I finished this book, I closed my Kindle and I took a few minutes to say goodbye to my past life!

    Okay book I gave this book a 3 star because it was interesting just hard to get through. It didnt pull me right in. Honestly I didnt enjoy the almost cheating undertones that were going on in the book.

    Okay story I felt like this book was drawn out a lot loner than need be. The story was a little difficult to follow. The writing was decent. The chapters switch who is talking and you get the different sides of the story. For the majority of this book I felt like the women were reading the letters and they were both at the point of being obsessive with them. I was just really confused with this book. I would not recommend it to others because I was not a fan. I received a free copy of this book i Okay story I felt like this book was drawn out a lot loner than need be.

    I wanted to like it, but did not. I really was looking forward to reading this book, but quickly discovered it was not the book for me. I am, I think, a reasonably intelligent woman, but this book made me feel stupid. I just did not understand it. Many times throughout the story I struggled to comprehend what was written, only to ultimately fail. If you are looking for a light and breezy read, this is not the book for you.

    Was looking forward to reading this book as it sounds like it would be very good. Once I started it was slow to start. Thinking that maybe it was me, I put it down for a couple days and picked it back up, nope not me. Hard to get into and after several attempts it just wasn't for me. *received for an honest review*

    A story without a real plot. Although it was supposed to be about two people who were in love as teenagers meeting again, the story never moves the reader to feel anything for the couple. Most of the story was about their lives now. There just was not much of a moving story to this book
