***5 "Heartbroken" stars with all my heart***



Honestly, guys!!!! This was an amazing story!!!
Intense, emotional, heartbroken at the same time, but with a wonderfull plot that couldn't keep you untouched!!!!

I didn't want for this book to come to an end... ever!!!

This was a story about secrets that kept you at the bottom.... about invisible chains that were holding you away from the life that it should be yours...
This was a story about paying other's mistakes.... For doing your own mistakes... from fear, from guilts, from need!!!

It was about pure love that could consume you and confuse you at the same time...
It was about bravery in its most raw form.... and it was about the strength that you have inside of you, but you never knew that you had!!!!
It was a wonderfull and unique story that could captivate you... At least, it captivated me!!!!



Well, this story was telling by two persons....
Clover and Daniel...

Both of them had many demons from their pasts to chasing them down....
And in an unexpected time, they met each other and they couldn't let go from each other....

But there were secrets that were keeping them apart... and ghosts that kept hunting them down!!!!

"What i was supposed to do with this girl? It was like kicking little orphan Annie and her mutt. I didn't want to be the villain in Clover's sad little tale. I wanted no role in it at all, yet i still walked over and crouched next to her."

Clover appeared to the town from nowhere... There was no family and no friends for her... Only a faithful dog...
She moved Daniel in an unbelievable way and he wanted so badly to help her....
The need to protect her became stronger when she put herself in dangerous situations that needed to be saved from him...
And as the time was passing, they came really close...

But there were barriers between them in the form of secrets...
Secrets that Clover refused to reveal to him, but when the time came, she had to choose if she will reveal her secrets or if she will lose her freedom!!!
And when her secrets unfolded, everything changed...

For better, for worst??? I can't tell you!!!

"I didn't know much about boys and girls being together, but i was pretty sure that honesty was an important part. I could keep thinking inappropriate thoughts about Daniel, but I was also lying to him. My secrets were a snare. The more I struggled, the moreI flailed, and the more I flailed, the more the wire tightened around my throat."

You couldn't not love Clover....
She was so pure, so innocent, so kind that it was impossible to not adore her!!!
Her life before was aching my heart so deeply...

Clover was a fighter even though that she didn't believe that!!!!
She was a homeless kid that was struggled to live her life with dignity!!!
She was a strong young woman, a kind woman who didn't hesistate to give her money to those that were needed them, even though that means that she was staying without food in her plate!!!!

She loved the others with so much clarity that nobody couldn't resist to her wild charm...
I also adored the way she loved Daniel!!!

"Our hurricane had done more than change the world outside. It changed me. It tied me to Daniel in a way that was new and unsettling. Did he also feel it? I was scared that he did, and even more afraid that he didn't."

Before two years, Daniel lost his girlfriend and from that moment he couldn't let anyone to come so close to him...

But Clover was so different and from the first moment that he laid his eyes on her, he was drown toward her....
She didn't stop to surprise him and even though that he didn't want to get attached to her, he couldn't do anything to stop it!!!!

Clover changed the way he was seeing the things around him!!!
He was a good person before, but she made him a better person...

"I barely knew anything about her, but lying next to her in the dark felt comfortable and familiar. The thought twisted my stomach. I didn't want to feel anything for Clover Scott. She may have been a stranger, but I already understood that getting sucked into her life would lead to nothing but complications. So how come alone with her, sleeping inches apart?
I was just doing the honorable thing... that was all. Clover had been in danger, and i was making sure she was safe."


Daniel and Clover together were fitting so perfectly!!!
They were connected with a unique bond and they were consolation for each other...
Their hearts heeled by their love!!!

The road for them wasn't easy... Too many secrets, too many revelations...
In some point, they just got confused....
Was their love pure and unforced???
Did Clover really loved Daniel or she thought she was because of his constant saving actions toward her????
Did Daniel have true feelings for her or he was clinging to her because she needed a savior and he wanted salvation from his haunted past???


"All these things have gotten in the way of us being together, but they don't need to, not anymore."
I swallowed past the lump in my throat. I felt naked and exposed. He held the power to crush me or pull me back into the light, and I'd given him that power."


As i told you before, i loved this story so much....

I loved Mrs. Fleet's writing and her characters were unique and wonderfull...
And I'm not talking only about Daniel and Clover, because they were too many characters in there and every single one of them had an important part in this story....
I loved them all so much!!!! And now I'm sad that this story ended it!!!!

This book will be forever in my heart!!!
