Rating : 5 Stars
BEAU has never known a good life, only the torment that lives inside his head every day. The only way to block out the darkness that shrouds him is through the rhythmic beat of his drums. Knowing what happens when he opens up to anyone, Beau buries his pain deep inside, keeping it all to himself.
APRIL has lived a life of wealth and privilege, full of love and support. Her only insight into what it’s like to have a rough life is through her work with foster children. When she meets Beau, it starts as a challenge to get through to him but quickly turns into much more than either of them bargained for.
TOGETHER, they are mismatched, ill-fated, and COMBUSTIBLE. But when their connection is challenged by the collision of past, present, and future, will they be snared by love…or circumstances?
Often you read in a book blurb âfans of xxx will love this bookâ and sometimes when reading those stories I wonder who came up with those comparisons.
So I hesitate a little to give such a recommendation myself â but in certain cases like this one I feel the need to give a comparison myself so if you liked âGraysonâ by Lisa Eugene or âRealâ by Katy Evans – I am quite confident that you will love this book.
The plotlines might not be comparable but the intensity of the story is at a similar level. I loved how the author described the struggle that was going on in Beauâs mind.
To me as a reader it felt like I could understand what was happening. Which I think is not an easy feature when you are lucky to say that you have no experience at all with the problems that Beau is going through.
I could relate to April when she first came near to Beau. He was described with such an intensity that at times I thought I could actually see him in front of me when I closed my eyes.
April had a great natural intuition on how to handle Beau â long before she even knew what was really going on. I loved how the author described her thoughts.
And my heart broke at that bridge â I was actually envisioning that scene in front of me and it gutted me. I had to stop reading with tears in my eyes.
This book is in my top reads of the year 2016 list for sure â¦
