Sometimes best friends are each others halves that make a whole, two people that have a bond so deep that it’s hard to tell where one person ends and the other begins. This is how it was for Elara and Kam. They were everything to each other. Until one day, one moment that changed everything.

“Kam was my beginning, my middle, and my end. Without him, I’m lost. Without him, I don’t even know who I am.”

Struggling to find a new sense of normalcy after her heart is shattered ,Elara finds a friend in the most unlikely person. Kane is Kam’s older brother. Where Kam is easy going, Kane is a quite mystery. The only thing Elara knows is that she is drawn to him and the two find comfort in each other while they each try to come to terms with a devastating loss.

“I let it all go, knowing with complete certainty that nothing will ever be the same again.”

This book was such an emotional journey. My heart hurt for Elara as she carried such a heavy burden of guilt that only seemed to increase as her feelings towards Kane grew. Truthfully I didn’t want to like Kane because I loved Kam so much but I ended up loving them both. Elara was such a strong character and I just wanted her to forgive herself and let go of the secrets she carried. Kam was sweet and amazing and Kane was the calm during the storm that Elara desperately needed. In the end Elara and Kane were two people so destroyed by tragedy just trying to survive and who never expected to find love along the way. This is an emotional story and there is a lot of heartache but there is also joy and healing. If you’re in the mood for a beautiful and emotional story you should definitely read this one.
