Publisher's Summary

I was warned about Tristan Cole. "Stay away from him," people said. "He's cruel." "He's cold." "He's damaged."
It's easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn't do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him, because it also lived inside of me.
We were both empty. We were both looking for something else. Something more. We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays. Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.

Heartbreaking & Beautiful all in one!


I love a book that gives you two damaged & lost souls and lets you see how they find their way back to happiness. This book is really about loss, love, friendship and finding your way out of a deep dark hole of guilt, anger and genuine heartbreak. Tristan is a broken man who's way of coping with loss is being ANGRY and just plain mean. He tries to make everyone stay away from him. Elizabeth dealt with loss and despair by running away. She couldn't drown in her depression because she has a daughter who needs her. These two come together like a freight train and reading about how they use each other to help cope and move on is beautiful. The story line was fabulous, the characters very likable and the ending perfect. I really enjoyed the narration too!!! Highly recommended!

Heartbreaking and heavy

Wow. This one was emotional. I hesitated on the book because I read the preview and could see it would be a heavy story, but after hating the last three I listened to, I finally landed on this one. I'm glad I did. It was adult...something a lot of books have been lacking, and it was deeply heartbreaking and beautiful. At 32, finding a great story that doesn't revolve around college age is getting more difficult, and its hard to get into the mind set.. here, you're dealing with loss and pain that play on your biggest fears. The author nailed it, there were eye roll moments, but at the same time they were fairly relatable. I formed an emotional bond to the characters and even found myself so sad I was throwing it aside only to pick it right back up because I had to know what was next. Brian Pallino was the other reason I finally decided on this one, he and Erin Mallon both are fantastic. Great read, fantastic listen, but prepare yourself to feel the emotions.
