Favorite Quote: "I thought I was doing better. I thought I was getting over him. Nope. One glance from those beautiful hazel eyes and I am right back there again, being consumed by him."
Like the first novel in this series, prepare yourself, crying will ensue. This novel as even better then Drops of Rain. If you loved book one, you don't want to miss this.
I really loved reading about Drew in book one, but it was Beau that I REALLY wanted to know about. I wanted his story. He was the one that stuck out for me. This novel delivered with even more of a story then I could have imagined. Beau and Leila have a long story that needed to be told in a certain way. I thought I wanted it all at once, but Kathryn showed me otherwise.
This was a story that needed to unfold slowly. We needed the past and we needed how that was affecting the present.
Beau had a hard life. The hardest. Every day he suffered, and everyday nothing changed. His only solace was Leila. She was his best friend. He was the same to her. She needed him in those stolen moments just as much as he needed her.
The motional aspect of this story was heart wrenching. Every moment that was relived was painful to read. To see what Beau went through. What was even more emotional was watching Beau and Leila finally come to terms with a lot of things from their past. They have both always knows they were IT for each other, but life and circumstance saw to it that at this pointing their lives they were little more then strangers.
Jump into this novel and watch as fate lets her plans unfold. 12 years later lots of things have changed and Leila and Beau are about to see just how much. They are about to find out Why. I really can't wait to see where the remainder of this series takes us because this novel was fantastic. A Can't Miss Read.
She said that she was my best friend and then one day she wasn’t. Every day I live with the visible scars, but it’s the invisible ones that hurt the most. They are a constant reminder of everything I’ve lost as well as all the things that I’ll never have. I should be over this by now, it’s been years, but I can’t escape the memories that haunt me. Everyone around me is moving on with their life, so now I need to do the same. Tennis brought me to Columbia University, and I am quickly proving that I will not let anyone defeat me, past or present. I am in control now. Life has taught me the hard way to remember that. But after all this time, I’m still searching for an answer to the one question that is constantly burning in the back of my mind…why?
He said that he was my best friend, and then one day he wasn’t. It took one moment to change my entire life. What I thought I knew became a lie and nothing was ever the same. Slowly, I picked up the pieces and focused on what I could control…me. I live in New York City and attend one of the world’s most prestigious fashion and design schools. Day after day, I am getting closer and closer to making my dreams come true. I did this all on my own and no one can ever take it from me. I know my future is bright, even if my heart is destined to stay in the dark. The dull ache that still lingers is my daily reminder to rely on no one but myself. Although, after all this time, I still can’t help but wonder…why?
