's review

it was amazing

I think that the saying never judge a book by its cover apply so well there.

I genuinely do not think that I can find the right words to describe how this book made me feel. I should have known better… I should have known that as far as Kennedy Ryan is concerned, she never writes easy stories that make you dream. She writes stories that make you feel and think about your existence, about the meaning of life and love. I got drunk on her words and I am mesmerised by her talent and her prose.

“ I’m the devastation left in his wake”

Her writing style had me engulfed within the first few pages, and the deeper I went - the deeper the words were scarring me.
Iris is a damaged heroine who is brave, strong and so much more. Her story is about abuse and loss. You feel her constant headaches and the wrenching pain in her heart even as you breathe in her strengthening poise and resolve.
August- he is a bit of everything, friend, protector and a knight. I simply love him.
I do not want to say too much about the storyline but I must say this- It's splendid, it's heartbreaking. The story is so intense and it captured me the minute it started. Five stars doesn’t do this book justice.

“ Iris is my constellation. She took the darkness as her cue to shine.”
