"There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in." - Leonard Cohen
I saw the stark, blatant honesty in his words and mourned for all the time we’d lost. Mourned because I had been lost in mourning. We both had been. He had to leave when he did. I had to stay when he left. Our paths diverged, first one, then two.
“Each perfume I’ve create was inspired by you, Ev. Synaesthesia is you in the morning, when you’ve just woken up. Wildflower is you when you dance. E.V is you when you smile. Limerence is how I love you. And Hiraeth is how I’ve felt for eleven years without you in my life.”
The scent was . . . sophisticated where once there’d been the naivety of a novice. It was . . . glorious, sumptuous, a medley of wonder.
I glanced at the man beside me and fell in love even deeper, because he’d flicked the switch. He’d turned on the light bulb in my mind, shown me a new way of thinking just like he did when we were teenagers. Only this time, I didn’t hate the world. I didn’t see the cracks. I saw all the beautiful, flawed and wonderful parts that held them all together.

"So," I hedged, glancing briefly at his bare ring finger. "No wife?"And SUPER FUCKING SWEET...
He gave a faint smile, eyes wandering in the direction mine had gone. "Why, you interested?" I rolled my eyes.
"Oh, yeah. Sign me up."
"The job's yours. When can you start?"
"Who you are as a human is its own success."
"I kept this flower from when were teenagers... I took it from the ones I picked to make my perfume when we were at school, then I put it inside some crepe paper for safekeeping. I had the pendant made at a jewellery store here in New York."He killed me. I want a Dylan 😍
"What's the point? Everything you grow just ends up dying."That's why I didn't bother trying for anything good. Good things were only taken away. Like Sam.She still remained strong in my eyes. It took a lot of work and you could still see the cracks in her, but I think that was just a part of growing up. Unfortunately innocence is a product of childhood and simply can't survive. But even despite Dylan, she was working on being better.
I had to find happiness within myself before I found it with someone else.I loved the way this second chance romance came together. As I mentioned above, it's a trope I'm picky about so I was so happy I had no complaints! They took real time getting to know one another again. I hate when couples immediately jump in the sack. Because even though they once loved each other, they had become different people. So I was glad they recognized this.
Here was a man who had once been a boy, who had once stolen my heart, who had once been my whole entire world. Now we were virtual strangers.Dylan and Evie stole pieces of heart and I don't even want them back. They've earned them.
"There are just as many molecules in a single breath as there are stars in all the galaxies. The scent from a single spray of perfume is a much grander experience when you think about it that way."
I no longer looked on the world through a dark lens. Now I understood that everything had to die so that new things could come to life.
I didn't see the cracks. I saw all the beautiful, flawed and wonderful parts that held them all together.A Crack in Everything destroyed me, but this book pieced me back together. This duet is why I read romance. I laughed, cried, swooned, and everything in between. I'll definitely be rereading these books, probably many times, because they're two of the most beautiful stories I've ever read. It was an easy decision to put this duet on my "best of the best" shelf. I thought I'd read Cosway's best. Not because I thought she'd get worse, I just couldn't imagine her getting any better. But she proved me wrong. This was perfection. I'll read any and everything she writes, and I can't wait for what's next! ❤️ If you haven't read anything by her, you really need to. You won't regret it.
