Publisher's Summary

My name is Reyna Miracle. Even though a part of my name is Miracle, there's nothing miraculous about me. My body portrays the tales of my life. Every feeling, every heartbreak, every emotion. Marked. Inked. Stained. A walking canvas of my messed up truth.
But there's one confession I can't put in a tattoo. A confession that will kill me to tell, but my best friend died before I had the chance.
Now I'm left with him. The only one who can hold me in the night and squeeze that spot on my neck that feels like my lifeline between sanity and chaos.
But we don't work together. We're absolute poison for each other. We're a stifling, suffocating, sickness of darkness.
But I feel safe...because I've made an art of pushing people away.
Now he's pushing back....
And making me believe....
Making me wonder....
Maybe, just maybe....
I could be the one.

Something different for a change!

I had a hard time rating this book. I enjoyed the writing style and the story line but I did have a few issues with this book. The characters for one were very hard to connect with for me. Reyna was way to much a drama queen for me. I get that she knew loss but it felt like an excuse to be damaged too me (especially the whole sisters thing). She was a love tornado, taking down every man in her wake and turning a blind eye to their feelings claiming no one could love her. Her now best friend Hayden is an alcoholic with issues stemming from his sisters death. They are a terrible pair, they fed into each others problems and she is blind to all the issues their friendship creates for him especially. Liam is her "dead best friends fiancé", she has a history with him and she runs, crushing him when he needs her most. I loved his character even though he dealt with way more crap then I would have. In the end I love that all of these characters found their way and grew. Even though I had things I didn't like, this book did exactly what a book should, it sucked me in from page one and I didn't stop until it was over. The story line, the writing, the narration and the great cover is why I gave it 4 stars.

The narration was good. At first I didn't think I'd enjoy the accents but I got used to them very quickly.

Interesting Emotional Story

The narration was great and brought the book to life for me.

This was a realistic story that goes back and forth telling the story about Reyna and Liam.

Reyna is broken and carry the burden of having cheated on her best friend Melissa. Reyna has spiraled out of control after the death of her best friend. Flashbacks from 3 years prior show just how deep the past still haunts her.

Liam sees her 3 years after their graduation and tries to approach her. She is full of doubts, regrets, and unwanted feelings. She doesn't usually let anyone in but when things go too far, she has to evaluate her life, get help, and see herself in a different light.

Reyna has vivid dreams that caused a bit of confusion for me a few times. The timeline back and forth is a bit choppy at times.

One of my favorite characters was Frank.

Overall, this is a very emotional story and truly quite different than what I'm used to reading. I did enjoy it quite a bit.

I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
