Her body leans back as her brows pinch with a dubious stare.
“You want me to teach you how to play piano?”
I nod. “The song you played. I like it.”
She blinks, brushing her fingers through her hair. “It’s
about learning to love people’s faults and pain for what they are. Beautiful.”
My head cocks. “Why is that?”
She wets her bottom lip. “I guess when you love someone, you
don’t get to choose which parts. You’re getting every single piece of their
being, scarred or not.”
Her eyes trail to her hand, scarred with white and pink

but part of her nonetheless.
Meeting her eyes, we stay like that for a few long moments.

This book is truly a masterpiece. B. Celeste continues to blow me away with her story telling abilities and her way with words.
I absolutely, whole heartedly, ADORED this book. This is a story that sticks with you for a long time. It proves that love is love, despite your age difference. You can’t help but fall head over heels in love with Ollie and Charlie’s story. These two were meant for each other. Time unfortunately is standing between the two as Ollie is about 16 years older than Charlie, but things have a way of working out for them in the end. (And thank god for that!)
But the time between them meeting and to them finally getting their HEA, was no easy task. It was filled with love, friendship, angst, drama, tears, hurt, and longing. This story really pulled on my heart strings and I found myself crying right along with the characters.
B. Celeste, you amaze me with your talent!! You are one of the most talented authors I have ever had the honor of reading. Thank you for bringing this story to life!
I highly encourage everyone to pick up this book, and enjoy the ride. It’s a beautiful story, one that I love very much!
