TWO SOULS TRAPPED IN TRAGEDY.
FREEDOM OF CHOICE. THE POWER OF LOVE.
THEY’RE GIVEN ONE LAST CHANCE.
When I met Judah Colt, I knew his presence in my life would change everything.
My gut told me to run before it was too late, and while I did the best I could to keep him at arm’s length, our connection became too powerful to deny. Too real to push away.
We fell hard.
Then we crashed and burned to ashes.
And now—after the rug had been torn from beneath me, yet again—I was beginning to think I was made for this. Born to walk this path full of unspeakable pain and unanswered questions, if only to learn the taste of my own strength and witness the tenacity of my soul.
But I never stopped wondering…where was my happy ending?
Where was Judah’s?
Did we get one?
My Skyscraper was broken, damaged, sick, but at one point, so was I. And with the help of those around me—with the unconditional love of my chosen family—I’d learned that brokenness was a choice. It wasn’t a sealed fate or a final death sentence. Healing was available if I wanted it, and while I held onto that realization with both hands, Judah could never manage to do the same.
Now? It was his only option.
I didn’t know what would happen next—had no way of predicting the future—but after months of endless heartbreak, after cleaning up the destruction that came with Judah’s addiction, I knew one thing for sure: I’d be damned if I didn’t close out this chapter of my life with a settled heart and a smile on my face.
The rest was up to him.
We are Phoenix and Judah.
Baby Bird and her Skyscraper.
This is the conclusion of our story, and it could either be our new beginning…
or our final end.

5 Heart Review by Lorena
I cannot believe the journey has ended for Phoenix and Judah but it was bittersweet. It was a long journey and it was a tough and a very long painful and healing process for these two but it was one heck of a ride that we went on with them. Phoenix and Judah both went through hell and back but Judah definitely put Phoenix through hell but she managed to get through it because she loved him and she believed in him and she knew what he was going through so she toughed it out for him.
Nothing like sticking it out and going through the pain with the person you love the most and going through the healing process with them and even though Judah hurt not just Phoenix, but a lot people, everyone was there for him and everyone was able to forgive him because they all were party animals and they all partied hard but the one who fell the hardest was Judah and he was the one who needed the help the most and without his best friend and his girlfriend, he wouldn't be where he ended up in the end and he owes everything to them.
Phar, my heart breaks for him, and I hope something good comes his way and the gang, oh my god, these people are like the best and they all need a book of their own and I hope I get to read a story on them because they certainly have a story to tell.
Brianna Jean certainly has left an indent in my heart with these characters and they will certainly stay in there because they are going to be hard to forget. I loved them to damn hard and their story was definitely a strong one that I will not be forgetting any time soon!
