    2. I don't know what I was expecting with this book but I WAS DEFINITELY NOT EXPECTING MY HEART TO GET TORN FROM MY CHEST.Anyway, this book is beautifully written and was such a great story about friendship. And it killed me. Honestly, I wasn't expecting this book to be this amazing. I was a little meh with first chapter or so but once I was able to sit and read the rest of the book in one sitting, I was blown away. I definitely recommend Our Last Time.

    3. Never say Goodbye. They say kids are resilient, that teens will get over their first love, the loss of a best friend, but is that always true? Willow and Kennedy had been best friends forever, each bringing out the the best in each other. Kennedy had a free spirit, willing to laugh at life, live each moment to the fullest and tempt the fates. Willow learned how to live life in the moment from Kennedy and they were inseparable, until Kennedy was losing his second battle with cancer and he had bee [...]

    5. I truly loved reading this book. Before picking it up I questioned whether or not I'd have a problem with the writing, because the author of the book was eighteen at the time of publication. I was shocked by how well it was put togetherI could definitely tell time and genuine effort was put into the book. The story was easy to follow and understand, I completely related with the characters, and my emotions were all over the place while reading it.Willow and Kennedy's friendship is wonderful and [...]

    6. Bumping this one up to a 3.75-4 stars because I had a lovely conversation with the author, and she's made me see some things differently. All I have to say is that this made me shed ugly tears. Kennedy and Willow's relationship was so wonderfully done, I wouldn't change a single thing about it - despite it's heartbreaking and bittersweetness. I loved the way the author interweaves Kennedy/Willow's relationship from 1997 with Wyatt/Willow's relationship in 2006, it's simply magical. As I've state [...]

    7. I loved this book. This book is amazing. The characters are amazing. I love Kennedy and Willow. Even Wyatt was able to steal my heart before it ended, though he did push my buttons a little at first. Okay, so first I'm going to give you faces to match with names. Willow:In the story, Willow is described to be skinny, to have short blonde hair, and brown eyes. And damn if I didn't picture Brie Larson's face when given that description.Kennedy:In the story, Kennedy is described to be skinny, reall [...]

    10. Our Last Time by Cristy Poplin is a new adult, second chance at love standalone novel. The book is well written, and Poplin has used the dual time line structure admirably. The story of Kennedy and Willow in high school is narrated by both characters whereas the present-day story is told only by Willow. Kennedy and Willow are joined at the hip. They’ve known each other since they started school. It is almost impossible to describe the characters separately because they are so much part of one [...]

    11. **ARC provided by Author, in exchange for an honest review**OUR LAST TIME was heartbreakingly beautiful. This book made me laugh and cry throughout reading it.

    12. See full review at booklovercircumspect4/2016This book involves the relationship of Willow and Kennedy. The books goes back and forth between the present time and current time to tell their engaging love story. Willow and Kennedy have been best friends since elementary school, but Kennedy previously had a brain tumor when he was younger that was easily treated. Now at 18, Kennedy has terminal brain cancer and only has a few months to live.Willow is leaving for college in Chicago as Kennedy does [...]

    13. Heartbreaking and emotional.I liked how the time shifted back and forth, and how it gave the great backstory and young romance of best friends, Kennedy and Willow. The lump in my throat is a high indication of how emotional this story was, and how having to say goodbye may end in "Hello". This was an endearing story of a young woman, and as Kennedy put it, she was his forever, and he was her beginning. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Poplin has a talent for showing emotion with her words, and sh [...]

    14. This is a book that would be better narrated in third person point of view. Being in the head of the main character in her first person narrative is annoying because the main problem of this book is Willow herself. Willow is an unsympathetic character. She's entitled and seems to think that she's superior to other people--which I get from the way she thinks about the subtitute teacher and the way she looks down on people (who go to prom, who wear lipgloss, etc). Her not giving Tessa a chance, he [...]

    15. 3.5 StarsThe synopsis of Our Last Time caught my attention and I couldn't wait to get stuck in. The prologue left me in an emotional state. I instantly loved Kennedy but not sure of my feelings regarding Willow. Our Last time is told in both past and present, which I loved. The past (Kennedy and Willow) is narrated by both characters, I enjoyed reading about their high school years. The present is told by Willow, I liked learning what happened after Kennedy. Okay, I enjoyed reading Our Last nigh [...]

    16. If anyone understands losing your "forever" it's me. I was in love with my best friend and lost him in high school, like Willow and Kennedy. Looking at it from a wider point of view, I think their relationship is so sweet and I understand Willow's survival methods. However, the writing style of this book, the interactions of the characters, and Annette seeming more like a 4 year old than an eight year old drove me crazy and I can't give this book more than 2 stars.

    17. 2.5/5 StarsToo many things to talk about why this ended up being a disappointing read. I wanted to like it all but I can't.
