Once upon a time, I fell in love with a boy.
A beautiful, broken boy who had his own world of struggles.
People warned me against our love, but I didn't listen.We looked weak.
Dangerously in love.
We didn't care.
In order to keep our hearts protected from the opinions of others, we became each other’s secret.
We shared stolen moments. Tender touches. Secretive embraces.
It was our twisted love story, and it worked for us up until our lives changed forever.
The boy I loved became Hollywood’s newest golden boy.His career blossomed as mine stalled.
He found massive success as I discovered multiple failures.
He made something of himself, while my dreams never came true.
We moved into different realms where our pieces no longer fit together.
In the fairy tales, love conquered all.
In reality, love was the main reason empires began to fall.
I always knew Landon belonged in my story.
He was my beginning, middle, and end.
The only problem? I wasn’t certain I still belonged in his.
4.5 Heart Review by Ashley
My heart is so full after finishing Landon & Shay's story. However, in true Brittainy C. Cherry fashion, my heart took a beating before it could heal. This book was such an emotional roller coaster that I found myself physically rubbing at my chest to ease the ache.
I loved how much both Shay and Landon grew in this book. How they chased their dreams even when it lead them further and further apart. How they yearned for the love that was missing. How they tried to move on. How they couldn't. But most of all, and stay with me because this is going to sound weird, I liked how they failed. That they were human. That they stumbled. That they got back up and healed.
This book touches on some hard topics with compassion and grace. While my heart bled for Shay and Landon and their pain it was a necessary evil. They had to work through all of their issues, their pasts, their pain. Once again, and I shouldn't be surprised at this point, Brittainy C. Cherry blew me away. Landon & Shay was emotional. The journey these characters took to finding and embracing and accepting love with each other was touching on another level. And that ending...be still my heart. It was pure perfection.
