When Ash loses her boyfriend, she is consumed by grief, loneliness and an overwhelming sense of guilt for her role in not only his death, but the deaths of everyone she has ever loved. Refusing to let anyone in for fear of losing them too, she becomes withdrawn, spending her days reliving the nightmares from her past.
Until she meets Luke.
Initially scared by his intensity and interest in her, Ash tries to push him away. But as Luke slowly starts to chip away at the walls she’s built, Ash finds herself doing the one thing she swore she’d never do again — falling in love.
When the familiar feelings Ash had hoped were long buried with her past begin to resurface, she is forced to ask herself if falling in love again is really worth the risk
I SO desperately wanted to LOVE this book but just didn’t. Maybe I was just in a funk and it didn’t do the job to pull me out of that funk but I didn’t love it the way others have. I will say that I fell in love with Luke right away and he made this book good! He was the reason I didn’t put it down. I am glad that I finished it and I will admit that yes I was pulled in because every one was talking about it and I just wanted to know what the hype was all about. I did feel a little bit for Ash my heart broke for her at a few parts and yes it was horrible. But then Luke.. Ohhhh Luke. I don’t know what it was about him! I think it might be because I have a bit of an obsession for Rock Stars! and well he is a Rock Star! He also is pretty broken. Which is a something that I love about a boy in any of the books I read!
I understood her reasoning for pulling away from people but honestly it kind of started to piss me off with how she was pulling away all the time I can not imagine having to be alone and my heart hurt for her at the same time.
“I have to feel something because feeling nothing is just too empty”
I guess I was expecting much more then what I had gotten from this one. I didn’t hate it but I wasn’t completely in love with it. I do hope that whoever reads it does love it. but it just wasn’t for me and it didn’t have to do with the heartache or hurt or loss I love a good angst filled book but this just wasn’t it for me.
I hate to have to say that I didn’t love a book because for the most part I love them all. I will have to come back and possibly re-read it at a later time maybe I will feel different about it then. When I am not in a funk. I think I had just wanted something that was hot and steamy and full of “dirty-ness” but this was NOT that, so I will just go with that. It wasn’t what I was wanting at the moment I read it.
The love, loss, love and loss again is very sad and will pull you in. I did enjoy how it pulled you in then it would change on you. That drove me nuts. I like when I need to know more but then I get pretty much told “okay you now have to wait for the next chapter to find out what happens from here..” haha nice little trick.
