LOST

We knew each other a lifetime ago. And then…
We lost childhoods. We lost opportunities. We lost love.
Fate is giving us another chance. But a chance at what?
Because even though we’ve been brought back to each other under the worst of circumstances…
We are still. So. Damn. Lost.

FOUND

We found each other where no else could.
Found a purpose. Found ourselves. Found love.
Again.
But then life got in the way.
Three years later and the people that we once were are nowhere to be found.
Can our love survive everything we’ve put it through?
Can we find a way back to each other…
Again?

I bend down and lay a featherlight kiss on her lips, letting my mouth linger there for just a minute.
And then I walk out of our house. Her house now.
Out of her life.

-Tucker

Lightning struck twice for Charlotte Morsey and I. The force of nature brought us back together and fused us so tight, that these days I’m not sure where I end and she begins.

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by author, in fact I think thus far I have read many enough to know the writing style and the author. This was new from her to me, darker and a duo at once also!

To say I was ready for this, I wasn’t. This kind of brought out emotional sides of me and darker sides. It’s heartwarming in a dark way but not less beautifully written by the author. Again, very different than what I am used to from her, so that was also a shock on it’s own.

LOST
Charlotte & Tucker, like saying night and day or sky and the ground. Tucker is the dark and Charlotte is the light. This will have some triggers for some, as it does involve addiction. Where Charlotte pass time is reading and anything nerd-book related, Tucker roams the street for his next fix. How do they go together, have attraction to one another? OOOH, in so many many ways. I don’t want to spoil it but it’s eye opening. The incidents they go through, the understanding that happens, the need from both in different ways *sigh* But the ending to book #1 was not fair, the history alone will have you begging for book 2 because I NEEDED to know so bad!

FOUND
This reminds me a little of Bonny and Clyde to be honest, where two unlikely people happen together and the adventures they encounter together will have you asking WHY. In so many ways of Book #2 i kept asking why, why did he do that, why did she stick to him, why did it happen…the chemistry between hero and heroine is mesmerizing though, someone so beautiful from the dept’s of dark. Their history, the side characters and story line, really sadly beautiful. REAL LIFE! I would say, that’s why the romance part of this was even more beautiful and relatable to. Also brief touch on the kiss and sexy scenes, FANTASTIC in both instances..just enough to both of the worlds! The ending to all this, W O W! What an outcome, I’m getting goosebumps just typing this, all over again. Prepare to shed some tears, I know I couldn’t hold them back. Like I said ALL THE FEELS!

A MUST READ!
