This book made me hold my breath so often.
Cassia Leo did it again. A heartbreaking and wonderfully written book. She has a way of describing her character's feelings in a way that makes you feel like you sit right next to them, it makes them kinda real.
I didn't really know what to expect from this book, I just knew that the story would be totally different from what we've seen from Cassia Leo before.
Mikki had to go through tough times in her life and when she finally decides to go to California to end it all, she meets Crush at the airport, again. He seems familiar, but she doesn't know why. Crush feels the same, have they met before? Because of canceled flights they stay in a hotel till they get new flights in the next days, and get to know each other during these days.
“I don't believe in fate, but I don't know what else could have out her there at that exact moment.” - Crush
Mikki tries to hide her pain, her thoughts, and all the things that went wrong in her life. Crush knows there is more to the girl in front of him. They slowly discover all the things, remember the times they first met, and even more than that. It's a shock and a relieve at the same time. And then there's Black Box. The mysterious book that has been the life line for Mikki since she got it. The last thing Mikki wants is to fall in love, she has other plans for her life. She knows that love isn't the right thing for her at that point in her life. But slowly she begins to make plans for her future without even realizing it, but Crush notices. He tries his hardest to make her see how beautiful life can be. But Mikki isn't the only one with a dark past.
“She loves me and all the blackness inside me.” - Crush
I loved every single page of this book. It's hard to find the right words for a book that made you speechless. All I can say is that I totally loved this book.
