Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Gah. Emotional, grips my heart and doesn't let go. This is (IMO) one the 'quintessential' New Adult romances that needs to be read. It's dark... all is not even close to perfect, and people can be so strong while viewing themselves as weak. It's a journey, and it will leave you cussing for book #2. But I love each sweet second of it. No insta-love... exact opposite. The emotional baggage has created a minefield making love seem near impossible. At least one of these darker subjects touched a chord with me and my childhood (but I'm not telling more because this is about the book) but it didn't leave me uncomfortable or reliving past issues. It reminded me of that time, but it doesn't dwell on the negative. Callie and Kayden are out there trying to live their lives, trying to make the best of it. That nearly hidden optimism and hope resonates within me. But, to quote the book:

“In the existence of our lives, there is a single coincidence that brings us together and for a moment, our hearts beat as one.”

My heart was beating as one with them, if only for a moment.
