“She’s beauty for my ashes. And I’m hope for her heartache.”—Cole Danzer.
I don’t know what makes a great love story. Is it that instant attraction when boy meets girl? The passionate kisses and the fairy-tale ending? Or is it a lifetime of tragedy, paid in advance, for a few stolen moments of pure bliss? The pain and the suffering that, in the end, you can say are worth it for having found the missing piece of your soul?
The answer is: I don’t know. I don’t know what makes a great love story. I only know what makes my love story. I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thing that saved me. That saved us. He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole. If thatis what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine…ours is the greatest of them all.

My Review: I can't even figure out how to review this book. Like it was sooooo good and just wow. This book brings so many emotions, and will set a high standard to all other NA books you might read. Yup, thats how much I loved it.
The characters were so well built. It made it hard not to love them and feel for them. The nightmare they were running from just made you want to be there for them and help the nightmare to end. Then Cole came in and the attraction and love was just one of the best I've read.
I really loved this story and would love to read more. The author did an amazing job and I will adiing her as one of my favorites. However do take some caution when reading this book. There are things that not everyone may like so just keep that in mind.
