“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” -Ernest Hemingway ~ A Farewell To Arms
They share an epic love but one moment changes everything. A life together that seemed certain is shattered. One learns you never love the same way twice; the other learns what it means to come home. You only think you know how this love story goes, but do you really know how an epic love can end?
“There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
She is living color, and I’ve been in a black-and-white world for far too long without her. Powerful stuff. It surrounds me. I’ve felt it since I first arrived. The forcefield of her. The magnetism of her. The power she wields over me. I’m alive again because of her, like a dying plant that finally gets some water. I’ve got it bad for this girl. Reality dawns. The light comes through the darkness and shines on me.
She’s my water.
The truth is I breathe with him. He is my air. Raison d’etre.

but that did not influence the review**
5 stars Oh, I have all the feels, my friends. All. The. Feels. This story has some serious game playing, like mind f*ckery of epic proportions in this series, but with an epic love you get epic everything. Although I wanted to scream at times, I seriously couldn’t put it down until I was done.
Linc was amazing before and totally amazing this time too. What a sexy mofo. He loves Tally with his whole being. He is a ridiculously good athlete with a silent confidence even when his world fell apart. He is dreamy, my friends, totally dreamy.
Tally sometimes frustrated me, but I still loved her. She had gone through the ringer and had had enough. The situation totally went nuclear (lol, her words, not mine) and that is still kind of an understatement. Tally is a bit of a psycho, but she owns it, which I why I loved her.
Tally and Linc together, the two of them, that chemistry never went away. Their souls loved each other the whole time, and it was totally spectacular. However, even though the attraction and pull was always there it was such a tough road. But we got there, and boy was it worth it, because the ending was amazing, beyond amazing. I was cheering, I was clutching my chest, I was so happy…all the things my heart did..the flips, all the things I didn’t expect to get and did. My fellow readers, this book will reward you with so much goodness your heart might explode. Just hang in there for that tough duration and I promise you that it will be worth it.
Rec it? YES! If you want an epic love story with so many ups and downs, with a couple that can’t stay away despite all the curve balls…this series is a must for your TBR.
