My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“I know we were forced into each other’s lives, but, I mean, I would have chosen you if I’d had the chance.”
This book released on October 1, 2014, and I didn’t read it until 1 month and 4 days later…that is just a travesty.
This story is so so soooo beautiful that I just want to cry. I finished it late last night and I just laid there in the dark staring out the window clueless as to what I was going to do for the rest of my life.
Books like this make my heart cry with happiness and make me want to die at all the same time.
“I’ll be your rock. Do you think you can handle that today?”
I think I get too invested in books. My heart can’t handle the separation once I’m done. I don’t even want to pick up another book for I worry that it will taint the memory of my sweet, sweet boys, Cooper and Jace.
From the very start, my heart felt full and happy. The writing flowed so beautiful and Cooper was the best boy/guy/man. He was funny and sweet and he hurt and it made me hurt. I wanted to grab him and cuddle him.
Jace was, well I don’t even know what he was. I just know that I loved him to death. He was cocky, but sweet. He was tough, but sensitive. He was amazing.
The two of them together…as friends, as brothers…it was the most heartwarming thing I have ever witnessed. I swear, my heart will never be the same again.
“You’re the best friend and brother I could ask for.”
Their pretend scowls and their half-hearted insults made me smile so hard.
It was just the little things that settled deep into my heart never to be forgotten.
The Rock Whisperer, the green little gloworms, the rocks that had a meaning for everything, every little smile, every tear, every hug, every nighttime walk through the bush, the acceptance…just everything.
Their story wasn’t perfect. It made me angry at times, so angry I was screaming inside and crying on the outside. I laughed loudly and I just loved so hard.
Jace, Cooper and their story will forever stay with me. ♥ ♥
“My favorite rock…Not the opal. You.”
