I recommend this book to everyone ages 15+
Short Blurb: It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him, because it also lived inside of me. We were both empty. We were both looking for something else. Something more. We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays. Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe. ©GoodReads
Characters: The characters were EXTREMELY well developed and I felt like I understood them. I connected with them on an emotional level. They weren’t flat, you could easily see them play out their parts in your mind. Favorite? Tristan has to be my favorite. They both had pretty traumatic pasts, and damaged hearts. Tristans side of the story stuck out to me the most though, I was sympathetic towards him more than Elizabeth.
Overall Opinion: The plot and entire story line was just amazing. I loved this whole story, through and through. There were parts that were super unexpected and I was screaming NOOOO! At times, the intensity raged my heart but it was worth every second. The ending couldn’t be any more perfect and I wish it would’ve went on forever. I was very connected to this book, I was going through a tough time a while back and all the quotes and moments I was like yes, I get you. #Relatable-Right!? There was a lot of crying and sadness but then there were parts I was laughing so hard to make up for the tears. It was beautiful, and precious. It was a little, strange? how they used each other to stay connected to their lost spouses. With that in mind, it was exceptional how they ended up connecting to one another in the process.
Her books are so QUOTABLE:
Here are my two favorites…
- “She was simply the air I breathed”
- “Because when you’re drunk and dancing, nothing else matters. You’re twirling, twirling, twirling, and the air gets lighter, the sadness gets quieter, and you forget what it feels like to feel for a while What happens when you stop? “That’s the one tiny problem with dancing. Because when you stop moving” – Her feet stopped froze and she released the glass bottle from her hand, sending it crashing to the ground- “everything shatters”
Thank you so much for reading my review!
