Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come.
This book DESTROYED ME… utterly slayed me… turned me into an emotional wreck. The feelings that this book emits are raw, real, touching, true, and heartbreaking. I can’t even begin to describe how intense this book is. It literally rocked my soul. And even though this book is terribly heartbreaking, it is absolutely beautiful as well. This is one of those book that will stay with me. I can’t stop thinking about it even though I finished it a few hours ago. I have a feeling that in years to come when I think about books that absolutely stirred my emotions and sucked out my heart that this will be the book that comes to mine. It’s incredibly gorgeous and a must read for all fans of everlasting love.
Poppy and Rune… Friends from the first time they met, and lover’s years later. Who would know that a person could find their soulmate at such a young age? That one person you can’t live without. That one person who makes life worth living. That one person whose heart beats at the same fast pace as yours does. Poppy and Rune are lucky… Because they have found this in each other. And 1000 boy kisses will go too quickly. Or will they?
“When I look at you, when you touch me, when I see your face…when we kiss, my heart plays a song. It sings that it needs you like I need air. It sings to me that I adore you. It sings that I’ve found its perfect missing part.”
I don’t want to say too much about the plot of this book because I feel like it will spoil the whole story for readers who haven’t had a chance to pick it up yet. So I’ll keep my review light and mysterious with a few warnings. #1. You will cry. This cry may be one of the ugliest cries you have ever had in your life. So please, read it alone. #2. Your heart will burst. You will hope that one day, if you haven’t already, you will find a partner like Rune and you will love as deeply and purely as these two do. #3. You will have this story in your mind for a while. If you like books you can just toss aside and move on from after reading than I have to say, this isn’t going to happen. This book will stay with you for hours, maybe days, even weeks from reading. And finally #4. You will become a BIG fan of Tillie Cole after this one…
“I closed my eyes and replayed our lives in my mind. I remembered the times I hugged him and he hugged me harder. I remember how I kissed him and he kissed me deeper. And best of all, I remembered how I would love him and he would always strive to love me more.”
This is a 6 star and above book for me. Not too often will I rate a boo higher than the typical 5 stars, but this one deserves it. If you haven’t read this one and have been curious I would suggest diving into it soon. It’s beautiful!
