There once was a boy, and I loved him.

Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet, while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and I refused to frown.

The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn't look away.

We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows.

Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision--a decision that changed us forever.

There once was a boy, and I loved him.

And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too.

She smelled like the days when summer went to sleep and awakened as fall. Soft, sweet, perfect. My fucking high.

Brittainy C. Cherry has done it again. Made me a blubbering mess and a believer in the redemptive power of love. What I love about this author's stories is that she writes about weighty subjects with true value. And she does it with subtle nuances that feel so organic to the story, I don't doubt the authenticity of the words. I walk away from reading her books with the knowledge that I've read something so beautiful that I won't soon forget it.

There is often tragedy, pain, and tortured souls. Characters who are fighting for their happily ever afters with everything in their beings. These are characters that are not perfect. They're realistically human and fallible. And I think that's one of the things that makes me so easily drawn into these characters' lives she creates.

Logan and Alyssa easily captured me and held on tight from page one. Logan, the impoverished boy who was mentally and physically abused by his parents. He wanted nothing to do with love, it's caused nothing but heartache his entire life.

And Alyssa, a wealthy girl who had everything money could buy except the affection and acceptance from her parents. They were opposites in many ways but in the ways that count, they understood each other at an intrinsic level. They found acceptance and love, but most of all, friendship. Before they were lovers, they were best friends. A pair of struggling teens dealing with the hand that life gave them.

There was a feeling of completeness when they were together. I felt their camaraderie, their joy, and their comfort in one another. Yet, in their younger years, I also felt the turmoil. The feeling that as perfectly as they understood each other, they were headed toward tragedy. There was too much emotional damage caused by years of abuse for things to run a smooth course.

I hated my mind, how it remembered. Memories were daggers to my soul, and I hardly had any positive ones to hold on to.

How would they manage to survive if being together was no longer an option?

This book is told in part when they were seniors in high school, and partly 5 years later. It's the before and after. One horrible choice. One decision that altered their lives forever and left devastation. The after is filled with regret, loneliness, and pain. And memories that haunt. I'm not going to lie, there was a period of time in this book where I started to doubt Logan. His actions were done out of anger, self-preservation, and a fear of hurting Alyssa any further. And he was a complete ass. I'm just going to throw that out there. But there was a turning point in the story that made everything all right again. All the frustration that was building evaporated with the knowledge that the author revealed.

Another thing I have to mention is how much I adored the bond between Logan and his brother. The love they shared was something so unbelievably beautiful. An unconditional love that never faded or broke no matter how hard life beat at it. I actually cried just as much with scenes involving him and his brother as I did with him and Alyssa.

This was a story about healing, about overcoming the circumstances that you arrived in and becoming a better person. It's about learning to love yourself. Accepting the love that has the power to mend the broken pieces, and form something even stronger. It was told in Brittainy's lovely poetic style of writing that never fails to enchant me.

A person didn't fall in love. They dissolved into it. One day you were ice, the next day, a puddle.

Read this book! I can't recommend it enough.
