Publisher's Summary

I fell for Connor Drake. I didn't want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.   

I'm in love with Connor...so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he's the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there's electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can't keep me away.  

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I'll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle...for both of them.  

Contains mature themes.

Perfect

I loved this book. And I lived the narrators. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes a triangle.

Heart Mulcher

Emma is a sure shot heart mulcher with her words. Her books are always steeped with loss and heartache, stewed in sweetness of first time tender touches and there's always a poetic rendition of sentiments for good measure. I know what I'm getting into.. THE most memorable journeys that shall resonate with me for all time. She reads loneliness and abandonment like a pro, her acute sense of detailing dejection and misery makes her one of the TOP angsty writers of our times. How she created Weston the "Sock Boy" who's been left behind by a fleeing father. As he ran behind his taxicab, his chase starts at that exact point. With only fumes and dust in his face and a sock in his hand are all the seven year of boy receives in the afterdraft as inheritance. He's never stopped running since. From his conscience, his peers, his bullies, his heart. His legs pump on the track but his destination is invisible and undefined. His back bowed with extreme kindness and generosity of his best buddy Connors family, who've rescued Weston family a million times and to repay them he joins the army reserves after Connor, to watch his back In between he becomes a soul for Connors charming shell and merged together they win over a beautiful red headed girl- Autumn. "You’re the Halley’s Comet of girls. The kind that doesn’t come around but maybe once in a life. I don’t want to spend the rest of mine wondering what might’ve been if I hadn’t tried, one last time, to take you someplace where every man will stare at you, and wish they were me. " It annihilated me with its poignant unrequited love. Tears flowed freely from my eyes and my heart felt a pain it had forgotten many books ago. The trio of friends kept sacrificing for each other drowning them all in abject despair. The narration was so good, Esp the female narrator, she brought life to the words and I could feel all the throat clogging emotions in her voice, heightening the anguish tenfold.

Wish it ended differently.

The narration was perfect. Well developed characters who fall in love with the same girl. I loved Wes’s character and how people did not know the real him. Well worth a credit.

Such an incredible story.

I absolutely fell in love with Weston & Connor from the first moment their friendship started. It broke my heart for Weston that he has withheld his emotions due to such a painful childhood loss. He has so much pain and so much anger. But at Weston's core he has this amazing love and poetic heart. The the two meet Autumn and although there is bro code Weston goes for pursuing Autumn and the love triangle begins. Saying that just feels wrong as its emotional and not intentional. So complicated, complex, multi layered and gah I loved it so much. The ending had me rushing to get Book 2 as I have to find out how this plays out and dry the tears that didn't;t want to stop.

The narration was perfect with nailing the accent and capturing all the emotions.

What a captivating, beautiful story

This was my first book by this author, and I was so pleasantly surprised with the prose. This book was so well-written that the characters feel like people I know. Yes, this book has a cliffhanger at the end--this is part of a duet so that is to be expected. However, after listening to both parts I can honestly say this is one of the best duets I've read this year. The slow build-up is intense and Connor's words are just so poetic you can't help but be moved. Just captivatingly breathtaking.
