They are idols to millions worldwide. I hear their names whispered in the hallways and blasted through the radio. Their faces are never far from the television screen, tormenting me with images of what I gave up.
To everyone else, they’re unattainable rockstars, the music gods who make up The Sound of Us. But to me? They’ll always be the boys I lost.
I broke all our hearts when I refused to follow them to L.A., convinced I would only bring them down. Years later, after I’ve succumbed to a monster, and my life has become something out of a nightmare, they are back.
I’m no longer the girl they left behind. But what if I’ve become the woman they can’t forget?
“And that sums it up; one decision changes lives. One act, one moment, alters the course of many. One decision certainly altered the course of my life.“
I LOVED THIS BOOK! It grabbed me from the very first line and would not let go! I ate the story up and I didn’t want it to end! The book just flew by and was over before I knew it! I loved everything in it, from the characters, to the structure (then and now chapters), to the plot, to the romance, and everything in between! I just can’t get enough!
“We’re best friends because we’re all broken in different ways… You being broken means that for once we’ve found someone that is like us.”
Arianna- I like Arianna as a character, but I need MORE. What made her choose not to go to L.A.? Why doesn’t she feel worthy of the guys? WHAT HAPPENED?! I need answers!!!!
“Usually I avoided them like the plague, but junkies always gave in eventually. I was not the exception.“
The Guys- Where can I get one? Hmm??? I love them all SO much and I know that their personalities have only barely been revealed. They all break and warm my heart in different ways and I just want more!!
“Pretty girl,” he whispers. “You think you don’t deserve to share yourself, your secrets. You think you burden people with your darkness. But you don’t. You’re not dark. You’re light. You’re warmth. You’re good. Fuck. Ari,” his voice broke, “you are so good.”
Gentry- I HATE HIM SO MUCH!! THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR THIS LEVEL OF HATE. ARIANNA SHOULD HAVE KILLED HIM AND HE NEEDS TO ROT IN HELL.
“I’ve never made peace with letting them go. I never will.“
I know this review was a little short, but I am so eager to jump into the next book that these were the only legible thoughts that I could write into words. A lot of my feelings towards this book are just me screaming… That cliffhanger has left me reeling and I need to the next book ASAP.
