I used his body to forget the pain until the line we drew was buried under muddied water.
I used to believe in three things:
That true love only existed once, heartbreak couldn’t kill you, and everything happened for a reason.
But if that were true, I never would have watched Daniel McCray get married to another woman, have a beautiful baby girl, and pass away before my very eyes.
Everything I believed was a lie.
Until I met them.
4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
This book had so many painful aspects to it starting with Piper having to deal with so much at her young age. She has some deep scars that are not physical but mentally and she closes off to others. She doesn't have many friends, and honestly she only considers Jenna her best friend her only friend aside from Ainsley and her roommate, Easton. Both Easton and Piper have a friends with benefits arrangement going on, they both seek each other out to drown out their pain and only being physical is what makes it go away.
Easton is just as damaged as Piper but he doesn't share any aspects of his life with anyone. He eventually starts opening up to Piper little by little once he notices that she starts withdrawing from their arrangement, or more like she's distancing herself due to her running into an old friend she had a major crush on when she was a pre-teen.
To say the least is that Piper has definitely put herself last and has dedicated her time and energy on Ainsley who really needs her. But now it's time to not just think about Ainsley, but she has to think about herself and the struggles and efforts she has to go through to get through schooling and starting her life with a good job that will provide for her and Ainsley.
But not only does she has to think about Ainsley anymore, she also has to decide who is the better man for her. Would it be Carter or Easton??
This was a tough one for me because both men really had profound feelings for Piper and they both treated her the way she wanted, except one showed her with words and affection while the other showed her with expressing them only at night time when they had their nightly cap. But only Piper really knows how she really feels for these men and who truly holds her heart. No matter what, one always ends up losing and one wins.
I though that Piper was a pretty strong heroine and I give her props for all that she had to deal with in life and taking care of a child with needs who'm she adored with all her life. She just had trouble trying to open up to people and letting anyone in her heart because she was badly hurt once before and I think this is why it was so hard for her to decide who she had stronger feelings for. But in the end she chose well. Both men were wonderful guys so it was a tough call.
B. Celeste always knows how to break your heart no matter what. But in the end she stitched my heart perfectly well this time around.
