Goodreads…

My name is Clover Calloway and I’ve lived two separate lives.

The first, I like to call “my past.” I never talk about it. I try not to think about it. My rockstar days of playing in one of the hottest bands on the planet are over. Along with the most volatile, beautiful, tragic love story of all time.

Over the past five years, I’ve settled into my second life. My “normal life.” The one where I work a normal job, hang out with normal people and fall in love with a normal, but wonderful guy. The life where I’m admittedly a little bored, but also safe.

My past wasn’t boring. But my past broke my heart into a million, unfixable pieces. So, I’m determined to keep it where it belongs—behind me.

And the man responsible for the shattering of me? Malachi Porter, lead singer and mastermind of Bright Tragedy, should stay there too. Far away from me and this idyllic life I’ve carved out for myself.

But what happens when my two lives collide?

When Malachi comes crashing into my perfectly normal world, he threatens to destroy it, promises to annihilate everything I’ve replaced him with.

He upends everything I thought I wanted and forces me to question the reasons I left Bright Tragedy all those years ago.

But I didn’t walk away five years ago, I ran. As fast as I could go. And while my heart is whispering that it’s different this time—that he’s different—my brain is screaming for me to run again.

Malachi Porter isn’t a normal guy. And he doesn’t belong in my “normal life.” But, nevertheless, he’s bound and determined to make a place for himself here.

I just hope my heart can survive him, that we don’t burn into another bright tragedy.

My take…

Kai Porter was the devil that had come back into my life, asking me to hand over my soul so he could do what he wanted with it.
And I was the idiot that had agreed.
Okay indeed.

My heart may never be the same after finishing this book. I fell too hard and too fast for this story, these characters, this real romance. When I finished I just knew I needed more. I needed more of Malachi and Clover. I needed more of the other characters that were sweet, honest and fun. They all found a crevice in my heart and nestled deep within. There is no way I can be happy just ending there. So make sure we get more of these fantastic people, Higginson. You hear me?

I hurt for Malachi and Clover and the past they once shared. I understood the paths they ended up taking, but only wanted and needed for them to find a way to get to a place where they could be happy now and together. I knew it would not be an easy road, but I knew it needed to happen. And the way that Higginson crafted the story and hardships they had to face, made the ending that much sweeter. It was an incredible read that I picked up every chance I got. Even at 2 in the morning when I found I couldn’t go back to sleep. Staying up until 4am was absolutely worth it.
