The people we love are thieves.
They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.
They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.
He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still canât get him out of my head.
He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.
I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.
Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.
But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.
You canât go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.
I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.
He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.

No Tomorrow by Carian Cole
Brittany's rating: 5 of 5 stars
By FAR the BEST BOOK I've EVER READ!!!
This isn't the whirlwind romance I swooned over in books. There's no sparkly ring, no wedding bells, no husband holding our baby in the delivery room. But what we have is a real love. It's dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. This love-our love-is a love that never dies. It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before.
It's really hard to be able to put into words all that I felt while reading this book. Emotions ranged from desperation and utter heartbreak to anger and fear. I could not put this book down and cried for probably a good 50% of the book. I never cried this much with a book before. I ended up using 4 snot-filled and tear-stained tissues.
This book is tragic. Blue and Piper's love is tragic. And sad. And utterly wonderful. It's not perfect, by any means. It's filled with more struggles than any couple should ever go through. But like Piper said, their love is a true love.
"And that postcard I sent you
With the pretty little picture on the front
And all those words I wrote on the back
Sincerely yours, see you soon, and all my fuckin' love
You got it too late, you were already gone,
And there was nothing else I could do."
I cannot stop reading this snippet from one of Blue's songs. I don't know why, but it's affected me very strongly. And every time I read it, I'm reminded of Piper and Blue and their journey to find that everlasting love.
It's a total tearjerker and one not to be taken lightly. It's a serious book with serious subjects in it. It's one that will stick with me forever.
I absolutely loved this book and all of its tragedy-filled pages. I loved the characters and I loved their struggles. I loved Carian Cole's writing style and how she told their story. I did not dislike a single thing about this book, except that she made me feel all the things, most of which was sadness. I cried so much during this book. It's a definite tearjerker, so read with caution and a box of tissues.
