Ah, what a way to end the story! This book took me on a wild rollercoaster of emotions, one that I'm least likely to forget. I've highlighted so many lines on this book I can barely keep up with myself.

Troian and Léo's love story is tumultuous; they went through a lot of obstacles. Sacrifices were made, judgments were drawn, hurdles were met and conquered.

This book talked about love through different views and avenues. Through different experiences and understanding.

"Love didn’t work proportionally; it made you feel in exponentials. Exponentially more happiness. Exponentially more pain."

"...only normal people love normally.
And I was broken and desperate. So, I loved brokenly and desperately."

" is only like our chemicals in one way: once two molecules have joined, have reacted, it is a very rare circumstance to be able to break them apart and pull them back to their natural state.”

Above all, it talked about how love is incredibly rare and should be worth fighting for. No matter what.

"What we have isn’t one end of the spectrum, it is the spectrum. Black and white and every goddamn shade of gray in between. It is the beginning, the middle, and the end. It is everything."

"Love is both the sacrifice and the reward. The need to give it all and the desire to take it all.
Love is pleasure and pain. Beginning and end."

This story is intense as it is passionate. It will take you an a journey of love and slef-discovery. Totally recommended!

In fact, I’ve realized that overthinking life is what destroys it. Living is about making mistakes. It’s about trusting the wrong people, and then forgiving them or forgiving yourself." "
