This is a story about a boy who loves a girl...deeply, madly, passionately. But never in a million years did I think my story would end like this...
I fell in love with her when I was just a boy.
And then I never fell out of love. I just fell deeper.
But she has everything. She is everything. And I have nothing to offer her. Except my heart.
Sometimes the guy gets the girl, and they live happily ever after. I wanted to be that guy, you know? Especially since I can't imagine ever loving anyone else.
Right after I work up the courage to tell her, my world gets torn apart. My dream becomes my worst nightmare.
I wish I could go back in time. I wish I had told her sooner.
But most of all...I wish it would rain again.
"Love is never a should. Love is a want. A desperate longing. An 'I can’t breathe without you'—exactly the way I feel about Evie."
Dylan and Evie are soul mates in the deepest sense of the word. Growing up on opposite sides of the street, their lives are entwined, and every memory that each of them has is anchored in the other. They've never been apart from one another for more than a day, and they share the most intimate of secrets.
The story follows the twenty year olds on a friendship-to-love journey that's so full of raw and honest passion that it will tug at your deepest core. Both living in the aftermaths of family tragedy, the pair have a seemingly unbreakable bond that ties them together by their heart strings meaning that there is quiet and understated awareness between the two of them.
Dylan's love for Evie really is desperate and all consuming, and her reciprocation is just as beautiful. However, when yet more tragedy strikes, there seems to be no hope left: worlds are ripped apart and as a reader, there will be nothing left for you but despair and anguish as you frantically scan the pages for a glimmer of optimism for their future.
Held up by a cast of vibrant and believable characters, this story will leave you breathless. Beth Michele writes with a delicacy that reaches right to the bottom of the pit of your emotions and drags you right into Dylan and Evie's world. The pictures she paints with her words and phrases are so desperately real that you will ride every wave with them, and feel every last raindrop on your face.
"Light rain dances over her cheeks, her lips curled into a riveting smile. I’ve never seen her more beautiful than she is right now."
