As a rule, men don’t grow up believing in a happily ever after. We don’t believe in meeting the love of our lives; or the white picket fence, and 2.5 children. Every man thinks that those stupid dreams or fantasies are just nonexistent shit until it happens to them. We should have been forewarned.
I wish I was prepared for someone to appear in my life and change all my priorities. I suddenly wanted that fence and children. The part of meeting the love of my life became very real, but I wasn’t ready for suddenly losing it all, and my life plummeting into this shithole forever.
The heartbreak of losing your soulmate is one of the worst pains you will ever live with. I should campaign and warn the young people. Vaccinate against love because if you lose it, you could lose yourself for the rest of your life. The burden on your back will forever mark you and wither away your soul, darkening your days and the rest of your natural life.
This isn’t false advertisement or a dramatic display of one bitter soul.
I fought by my mother's side until her last breath, and tried to help my father until his last memories dissipated. My sister is the last one standing, but her life is a miracle that can end at any given moment. All my life I’ve never been alone, but always felt lonely.
Today, my options on how to live my life are endless, yet my heart and my best friend limit them. Stay in Seattle, close to the one person that will never let me inside his world.
The thug, as mom would've called him. A man with a bad boy attitude and a heart bigger than the ocean.
This is a first Claudia read for me and this is another situation where I'm glad I got the opportunity to read her stuff.
Talk about a thousand feels!!! and by that, I mean heart getting squished throughout the story... sigh...
This is the 3rd book in the series, I haven't read the first 2 and I felt that was ok. I'm sure my reading experienced would've been enhanced if I read in sequence but I don't think it took anything away.
This is Jacob's and Pria's journey to getting to their HEA.
Jacob and Pria met in their late teens. Jacob, yet unjaded, talked with the earnestness of an 18-yr old boy with Pria. Pria, on the other hand, burdened with responsibilities too early in life, was cautious and unable to grab life by the horn until she met Jacob.
"You're an entire song about to be written, a song I'll play for eternity, Twinkle."... "Can you hear the notes? As your soul touches mine, we create sounds that become music as we move. Our melodies will transcend the stars, they'll remain in what you called the never-ending sky."
...Every strum of his guitar, every word he recites caresses every cell of my body, as if feathery kisses are showering my sould as he captures my heart with the sound of each note...
In a matter of days, I suppose their fate has been sealed. An emotion-filled weekend that was meant to be more ended up being just that due to circumstances. They both have to move forward given their choices, or lack thereof. Things happen, other people get involved, they grow up... sigh...Yet, have they really moved on?
From young love to star-crossed love in mere moments, it then moved to being second-chance love, a fave trope. With the history they have, there's much to know and learn, much to understand, much to heal... sigh...
From the first moment Jacob started spouting his cheesy lines, I was hooked. Only young love can evoke such emotion, I tell ya! As he got older, he morphed into this artist with a tortured soul and I couldn't have been any more enamored. And my heart just broke for Pria. I agree, she could've turned into a bitter person because of all the things she's had to deal with but no, she still ends up being the lightness to Jacob's darkness. She remained honest to her feelings and grateful for what she had.
And Claudia's writing is just pure poetry. I can't explain it any other way.
If you're looking for a good angst-y read, look no further. I know I'll be turning to Claudia's books when I'm in that mood.
Sigh... I'm telling you, these emotions just won't leave me... I think imma need a few days to shake em off... thanks, Claudia, thanks! *insert sarcastic but grateful tone* HAH!
