My name is Maya, and I'm not the same girl I was a month ago.
There is an emptiness I carry around in my chest now. A broken heart caused by grief.
There are also dark nights where I have trouble breathing as I feel the heavy weight of loss rushing through my veins, painful moments where I can remember my entire being scream in agony as I held onto my father's cold, lifeless hand.
Then there is always a hero to every story, isn't there? A hero who I despised from the moment he opened his mouth.
His name is Alexander. He is my inevitable I never expected to find. The one my broken heart leads me to. His existence, his touch, everything he did to make my pain bearable will leave a mark on me forever.
Yet, I know that when I'm gone, he'll only remember me as a fading memory.
***** 5 AMAZING STARS *****
I feel like I found a hidden gem. This book was written beautifully. It was so moving and breathtaking. I think I cried when I was only a few chapters in.
Maya goes to New York to fulfill her father's last wish. This wish was to contact her uncle. In New York, she stayed in her father's favorite hotel, which had a piano in the lobby full of beautiful memories. A panic attack came over Maya as a song played. A song that was played by her father every day in memory of her mother.
Alexander noticed the pain in Maya and helped her during her panic attack. He had his own demons with his ex-wife. The chemistry between Maya and Alexander was inevitable and scorching hot.
Ella Maise did an amazing job. This is a must read!
