I WAS in awe of this book. Both main characters, Maddy and Reid, had guarded hearts. Neither knew how to heal until they met and fell in love on the dance floor.
The lost that the two experienced although different but very much the same will have you in tears. Reid has the heart of all hearts and the good grace to make you melt. Maddy has a soul that needs to be mended and the ability to make you adore her instantly. Well together they are wonderfully cute but their past hold a key to unexpected events.
A fairytale for the new ages is my opinion. Melissa kicked ass on this book and had me in tears at the end. What was to be expected was nowhere near what actually happened. Stay in your seats ladies because the BEST is yet to be seen. I am so waiting on book 2 TBR July 31st. I give this book 5 hearts.
What would happen if you lost everything? If the people who were supposed to
love you unconditionally were no longer there for you, how would your world
change? That’s exactly what happened to Madeleine Becker when her parents died
when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything that she has
ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The only way for her to move
on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her
logic: she can’t get hurt if she doesn’t fall in love. That theory is blown to
pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is
gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He understands Maddy’s pain all too well, but
sharing his pain would mean breaking down the walls he put up around his own
heart. Conflicted between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to
reevaluate his world. Maddy’s inner strength, snarky personality and breath
taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past. Together they find out what
happens when they let love in.
