“What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does?
I’ll tell you what you do.
Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.
To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.
Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.
But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.
I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.
I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.
I tried to move on without him.
But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.
Until something happened.
Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.
And nothing was the same after that.
Brittany's Five Star Review
To say this book is good is an understatement. To say this book is heartbreaking is an understatement. To say this book rips your heart out is definitely an understatement. Tears. Tears and snot EVERYWHERE.
The difference of loving someone and being in love, Ren, is loving someone can be full of obligation and self-denial. But being in love makes you selfish and greedy and hungry. It turns you into a self-serving monster because you can't breathe unless you have the one person you need.
This book is devastating and tragic. Full of love and laughter. This book is about finding love where you never thought you'd find it and holding on with all your might, desperate to hold on to it for as long as you can, only to be devastated when time runs out.
This story is no longer about a baby and a boy who were never meant to be family, but a woman and a man who were always destined to be soulmates.
This book took a turn I never expected it to. I didn't expect this to be sad. I didn't expect my heart to break. I don't know what I expected to be honest, but I know it wasn't what I got.
"I hope to be the man you deserve, Della Ribbon. I hope I can give you everything your heart desires. And then, when we've lived a life rich in so many things, I hope I die before you. Because if I don't, I know I won't survive a day without you. I can't."
But it just shows you that this duet is one you must read. To be able to reach into my heart and pull it out, with only words, is a true talent. One that I know Pepper Winters has been gifted with. Pepper can really make it so that the love these characters feel comes across to the reader. You can FEEL it deep in your own soul. You feel as if you're own heart is breaking when tragedy strikes. You just feel. Everything.
"We will never end because that isn't what true love is. True love is constant. It has no beginning, middle, or end. Life might end, but love...that's immortal."
Be prepared to hand your heart over to Ren and Della. Be prepared to cry. Be prepared to have your heart broken. Just be prepared.
