I was warned about Tristan Cole. “Stay away from him,” people said. “He’s cruel.” “He’s cold.” “He’s damaged.”
It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him, because it also lived inside of me.
We were both empty. We were both looking for something else. Something more. We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays. Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.

He gestured toward the house. “Hold her tight each day and night, because nothing’s promised to us. I just wished I would’ve held on tighter.”
Okay, now that I’ve finished bawling my eyes out until there are no tears left to shed…
I don’t recall ever reading a book that has made me cry as often as this one did. And oh boy did it pull on my heart strings! Giving birth to my son 5 months could be helping to influence my emotions, but maybe not.
This book was such a great read from start to finish. I truly didn’t want to put it down! I loved Tristan and Elizabeth, they fit together so perfectly. Two characters who were completely broken and just needed someone to help pull them out of the fog they were living in – they just made sense together. And we can’t forget about Elizabeth’s best friend Faye! Oh how I loved reading about that quirkly, foul-mouthed woman!
You know that place in between nightmares and dreams? The place where tomorrows never come and yesterdays don’t hurt anymore? The place where your heart beats in sync with mine? The place where time doesn’t exist, and it’s easy to breathe? I want to live there with you. –TC
This book had so many powerful messages but I feel like the main one is – live life to the fullest because tomorrow is never promised. And it’s absolutely true. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a nice romance that will have you reaching for the tissues faster than you can say Tristan!
