My name is Reyna Miracle. Even though a part of my name is Miracle, there’s nothing miraculous about me. My body portrays the tales of my life. Every feeling, every heartbreak, every emotion. Marked. Inked. Stained. A walking canvas of my messed up truth. But there’s one confession I can’t put in a tattoo. A confession that will kill me to tell, but my best friend died before I had the chance. Now I’m left with him. The only one who can hold me in the night and squeeze that spot on my neck that feels like my lifeline between sanity and chaos. But we don’t work together. We’re absolute poison for each other. We’re a stifling, suffocating, sickness of darkness. But I feel safe...because I’ve made an art of pushing people away. Now he’s pushing back… And making me believe... Making me wonder... Maybe, just maybe... I could be the one.

5 stars

Truly emotional story that will break you and make you believe in love at second try.

Reyna Miracle is a broken soul, so broken that she has lost all faith in herself. She just can’t seem to see any good in her at all. She blames herself for so many things in her life from the day she was born to the present day. When she finally decides to do her best and move on with her life and at the very beginning of that new start her past is back to haunt her once more.

A past she was running from is staring her right in the eyes and will not back down again. He is the cause of her biggest heartbreak, one that is causing her nightmares. He is also the only cure for her broken heart. He is the one who wants to make her see the she too is the one.

Will she push him back once again? Or will she let her walls down and be the one

This was my very first read by Amy Daws and I was pleasantly surprised and even if I didn’t really knew what to expect this story made it to my GREAT reads list. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to listen to audiobook version and that made it so much more alive and I was sucked into the story before I could realize what happened.

It’s not a complex plot but neither it’s predictable and that makes a really good book. I love when the story keeps me intrigued for each chapter and craving to find out more and more. This one did that and more. The way it was written was refreshing and pure pleasure for me. I am looking forward to read more and can’t wait to read the next installment ” That One Moment”. Both books can be read as a stand-alone but I would recommend reading this one before because you get to met the main character in this book and learn to know a little bit about him.

Cassandra Trullo KICKED some serious a*s narrating this book. I haven’t listened anything done by her before and that will be rectified ASAP! She killed this book…it the BEST way possible. The way she did not just main characters but ALL of them was SPOT ON!!! Every emotion, every thought, every fear, every hope…. E V E R Y T H I N G was perfect. And that British accent was over the top. She nailed it.
