I'm not your typical girl. I've been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that depression has become my only comfort. I was content in the darkness...until Wes Michals offered to be my light.
know that time wasn't my ally -- that every second that ticked past was
one step closer to the end of something that was beginning to mean the
end of myself. He tried to warn me. He promised me all he was able to
offer--each moment as it came--but it would never be enough.
when you think it's the end, it's only the beginning. Wes thought he
could save me, but in giving me everything, he ruined me. Because after
one kiss, one touch, I couldn't--I wouldn't ever be the same.
And from that moment on, his heartbeat became my own.
My Thoughts on the Book
am not sure I have ever read a book that had me on an emotional edge
for the entire book like this one did. This book had me aching for both
characters the entire book. I fell in love with both of them right away
and was worried for both right away too. This book is beautiful, it
will make you laugh it will make you cry, it will have you swooning over
almost everything that comes out of Wes's mouth. It is all most too
much and not enough at the same time. Rachel created fabulous
characters and the supporting characters were just what Wes and Kiersten
needed for their journey as well. Other reviews have said this and I
have to agree, this book will stay with me for a very long time. Just
thinking about it makes my heart ache but in a very very good way. 5+
