I would like you to preface this by saying that nothing in your life will have prepared you for this book. Not one thing!!!

Charlotte and Porter come from very different worlds. The only thing that connects them is the soul crushing pain they both endure everyday. It’s evident in their eyes and suddenly two lost souls find their kindred spirit.

But grief has a way of tightening it’s clutches just when you think it’s letting go. The story of pain and suffering, of love and acceptance. The epic saga of two people finding ray of light in the darkness that surrounds them.

I laughed for ten minuted straight after finishing because the other option was to ugly cry and run into walls.

I realised what actual pain means while reading this book. I had to physically rub my chest to ease the heartache. Charlotte and Porter’s pain is what connects them but their relationship is so much more than that.

Their chemistry was off the charts hot. I LOVE how they were absolutely at ease with each other and made the other smile. Gosh they are so cute together. *happy tears* I want to hug them both and just help them. I love them so much OHMYGOD!!!

Charlotte is my babe and I want her as my best friend. That poor soul, she needs to be protected from this cruel World at all costs. Porter, OH MY LAWD this man!!! I cannot believe this man is real. CANNOT!!!! He is loving, caring, funny, awkward and such a great dad. I love these characters so much that I wish they were real.

Aly has weaved such a brilliant story with these two. I am in awe and basically this book owns me for life. The characters are absolutely real and you can actually feel everything they are going through. You just don’t read this story, you experience it and then you feel it in your bones. This book became a part of me and I’ll carry it forever.

This story also gives you hope that no matter how broken you are, you always deserve love and one day it will find you.

5 Stars!

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.
“You’re pregnant.”
“It’s a boy.”
“Your son needs a heart transplant.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.
Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.
“He’s gone.”
For ten years, the darkness consumed me.
In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”
