“Ciarrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.

Together, they struggle to come to terms with what ha

I'm the BIGGEST fan of Chiarrai <3

Nephylim is known for her love of beautiful male characters, look at Silver from Enigma series... But in my mind Chiarrai is the most beautiful of them all. He is special to me for... let's just say for some very special reasons.

The start of the book is so sweet, so cute, so pure. It lulls you to love Chiarrai and his gentle way with his little brother. It also introduces us to the fairy tale that is a key to this story.

After the sweet start EVEYRYTHING goes

The story, like the fairy tale in the prologue is simply magic!
Jack- A man who is struggling through his present, trying to dive into the lake to get at his sunken, lost past; only managing to skim the surface with the stones he throws into it and
Ciarrai- A man who is struggling to live in the present trying to stay on the surface, to get rid of his past, but only managing to sink all the stones he throws in no matter how much he tries otherwise.

I wondered thru a lot of this book if Jack and Ci were going to make it. Sometimes they clicked perfectly well and then others I thought that they were way too far apart. I wanted to slap Ci's mom and brother and I wanted to hug Jack's aunt and then pout behind her back about what a pain in the ass she the nicest way of course. :)

If I had one wish it would be to be a fly on the wall while Ci tries to figure out how to live in the real world. I'm thinking that no matter how much he hates

Ciarrai is running away from a life he didn't choose, a life of fame, fortune and constant unwanted attention. He finally breaks away but freedom isn't all he thought it would be. A chance encounter brings Jack into his life. They heal each other and Ciarrai is finally able to find himself, to be the person he never knew he was. Then his past finds him, and he leaves Jack rather than subject him to the life he hates.
I almost don't know where to begin. This book has given me some things to think
