The Story:

Theo Montgomery had a loveless childhood, and wants to find his soulmate. Anna Cole grew up in care, and is determined to start a family of her own.

Then, one day, they meet. Two damaged souls from different worlds. Is their love for each other enough to let go of the pain of their pasts? Or will Theo and Anna break each others' hearts?

There are two sides to every love story.

This is Theo's.

A Note From Amanda:

I wanted to explore the idea of happiness and what makes people happy so came up with the idea of 'Anna' and 'Theo'. Essentially, Anna is very poor but has a mum who loves her and Theo's family are incredibly rich but they don't have any time for him. So can money buy you happiness, or is having a loving family worth more than having a big house? Anna and Theo's story was originally going to be a single book but I couldn't fit all of the details in, so I split it into two stories. To give it more depth, I told the stories from each of their perspectives separately, so when a scene is shared, if you read both books, you get different information from to give you a richer understanding of the situation. In addition to that, to fill in any remaining gaps, I included a third book in the collection, 'How to Fall in Love Again' which tells the story from Kitty's point of view, a girl who went to Theo's school and knows some of Theo's background. All of these titles can be read as standalone books but when you read all three then the overall story has greater depth and should be read, 'Anna' first, then 'Theo' and finally 'How to Fall in Love Again' which is Kitty's story.

Standalone or Series?

Book 2 of 3 in the 'One love, two Stories' collection. Can be read as a standalone book but better when read after 'Anna' and before 'How to Fall in Love Again', Kitty's story.

I first met Theo in the authors other book, Anna. Anna and Theo are novels that gives the reader the chance to find out more about each character as well as see things from their point of view. You don’t have to have read either book in any particular order, the choice is entirely up to you.

We first meet Theo in his novel when he is at boarding school. My heart broke for the young boy who has to endure bullying as well as having parents who are self absorbed and brush away any of his concerns.

Mr Porter is a character that I absolutely loved and was paramount in the story. The friendship between him and Theo was both heart warming and emotional. There is a particular part towards the end that made me cry as it really was so endearing.

The story very much centres around Theo with Anna appearing later on in the book. It was so good to be reading about her as she has been in the back of my mind since finishing her story and I had to know if these two get their happy ending.

Theo was such an emotional roller coaster of a read. I went through so many emotions whilst reading this book and I loved getting to know as well as understand Theo better. It’s a story very much about love, relationships and friendships as well as overcoming your fears and standing up to your past. Absolutely loved it.

I am exhausted... this is some emotional roller coaster. But as always Amanda Prowse writers with humility, insight, grace and depth.... regardless, there are two sides to every love story...

Anna grew up in care, and wants to start a family of her own. Theo Montgomery had a loveless childhood, and wants to find his soulmate.... they are two of the most unlikely characters both wanting love but not knowing what it looks like or how to nurture and protect it...

Anna and Theo are such a special couple... each shows the other how to love. And each shows the other what heartbreak feels like...

This is Theo's story.

This is a great follow on to Anna. Lots of emotion, upset and love. 5 Stars all the way...
