|The people we love are thieves.
They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.

They say you never forget your first time.
He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.
He broke all my rules.
I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.
But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.
You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.
I thought I knew everything about him.
He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.
|✔✖ My Review Check List ✖✔
AKA significant signs for a good book
Here ? No Tomorrow by Carian Cole
✔ – there is a def yes on that in this book. Every break almost physically hurt – I was reading while walking- in my lunchbreak (I am even now significantly thinking about my lunchbreak because of this book). I read in the night leaving me only 4 hours of sleep – just the bare minimum and I was cursing myself for not starting to read that book on a Friday night. I would have been tempted to cancel my date the upcoming Friday – I guess this will teach me to be more careful – but honestly, I would have never expected that.
✔- I would have never guessed the how this book would make me act. I started rambling while reading with people around me- lucky they knew me and the way I get when reading.
✔ – yeah there is that …. I was sitting in my lunchbreak with colleagues around me and my eyes started to well up …. There is not much laughing in this book – no mam – but my throat closed and I felt like choking on more than one occasion – God this hurt ….I even have to blink several times now while writing this
✔ – OH yes I wanted to punch someone here specifically the universe …. And If I could meet these characters I would hug them to death and tell them I am so sorry. I am not even sure why I am sorry I simply feel like that
✔- you can be sure – absolutely sure that this book will not leave me for the unforeseen future –
My Essence ?
Have you ever read a book and felt scared? Its that moment right in the middle of the book when it can go in any or no direction with the best or worst outcome and you feel like it would be better to not know what is going to happen rather than knowing the outcome is bad? Well this book is one of those books. So far every book I read from this author and there were several has been a deeply emotional 5 star ride and I think by now it is safe to say she is a def. a 1-click-read once you liked one of her books. I am pretty sure if you liked Storm, Talon , Tied or any of her other books you will love this one. It will hurt – oh yes it will – but her writing is beautiful it is like a train wreck – like the movie Titanic – you know that ship is sinking but you still cannot bring yourself to change the channel … THAT kind of hurt.
Dear Author thank you for sharing these wonderful characters with us – please continue to choose plots like this and never change how you write. Even if this book came so much later then expected it was worth the wait.
