**First off I’d like to say that there is mentions of rape and abuse so if they are triggers just a heads up.**
Heartbreaking beautiful. Two words to describe this story by S.M. Soto. It is so raw and deep. I struggled in the beginning, not because the story was horrible but because it hurt me to read how cruel one can be. It was gut wrenchingly beautiful and riveting. How memories of what once was was her only solace. I hurt for the young girl and the young adult she became. There were moments when I had to take breathers. God, I was so captivated by the poignant memories Bea recollected and yet still felt so much disgust.
“And I wanted to hate him for not saving me…But in all honesty, I didn’t really hate him, or even want to hate him. Love and hate are the same feelings under different circumstances—two sides of the same coin.”
I shed tears of frustration, sadness and happiness. My emotions were all over the place. My heart shattered into a million little pieces like the stars scattered in the sky.
“One day I’ll give you the universe, Bea.” “You already have…”
Bea and Liam has a connection only one could dream of. Their love was definitely written in the stars. Like a star, their love burns just as bright. Liam and Bea found their way back to each other reconnecting their heart, soul and mind.
“Bea’s my sun, my moon, and all my stars—the entire universe combined.”
I recommend going into this book with an open mind as there are some issues that may a hard limit for you so, remember there is a hea. With that being said, I highly recommend this book. Your heart will be broken and you heart will be healed with S.M Soto’s beautifully honest written words.
“Liam Falcon is the boy who captured my heart, and the man who saved my life. He’s my soulmate. He’s my one and only. He’s my happily ever after, and this was our story.”

When her best friend’s cousin, Liam Falcon, is sent to live with his aunt and uncle to clean up his act, Bea finds herself falling for the boy next door. With their hearts so infinitely entwined, Bea turns to Liam as her only escape from her new step-brother’s daily torment at home. Bea thought their love could conquer anything. But she was wrong. Love was for fools, and she was the biggest fool of them all. When Liam left Lakeport, he took her heart with him, shattering the organ to pieces.
