Gabriella Mason is damaged.
Teller Reddy is wrecked.
Misery loves company, and that’s exactly what Ella gets the afternoon her path crosses with Teller’s: the misunderstood premed student who instantly becomes her lifeline when she moves to Los Angeles, an attempt at escaping her heartbreaking past.
In the beginning, Lonely and Defensive complete each other. But in the end, their relationship is like broken glass—cutthroat and jagged.
Calling it off before they kill each other, Ella and Teller decide to “just be friends” despite the intensity that binds them together. It’s a delicate foundation rocked by tragedy, effectively destroying the illusion they’ve so carefully built.
Unable to deny what’s between them any longer, this is what happens when wrecked and damaged collide and close is still not close enough.
A story about two damaged people who both have a lot of ups and downs. This book goes from both past to present which is something I usually struggle with. I don't know why I just personally find keep going to the past as annoying and I loose my focus, but that wasn't the case with this. Their past needed to be shown as well as the present or this wouldn't have worked at all. It was a jam pact book with a lot of emotions and drama/angst. A really intense story which be warned does end on a cliffhanger (inserts sad face here), but hopefully I won't have to wait to long for the next book.
First read by this author but definitely wont be my last.
