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 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.

Not what I expected

I did not finish this book. I bought it after reading the reviews and was looking forward to listening to a great book. However, the vulgar language (frequent use of the f-word, etc) was a real turn off. I am not a prude but I don't listen to audible for this and the sample and the reviews didn't clue me in to this. Perhaps there should be some kind of rating system, like the movies. It just got tiresome after a bit, as well as all of the talk about penis size, etc. Maybe if it had come a little later in the story when I was more invested in the characters...
But it just seemed like the author wanted to talk dirty to show that she could. Ruined it for me.
