He wasn’t my friend until he became my enemy.
His center is freezing cold,
and his edges burn me when I get too close.
He is everything I want and nothing I am.
They say not to burn bridges,
but he burned ours to the ground.
She is the girl who wants to be seen,
but hates being noticed.
She was my friend, my tease, my confidant.
She is pure light against all my darkness.
The reason you burn down bridges,
is to build them up stronger.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Silas and Skylar’s story is wonderfully told in dual POV between present day and flashbacks to high school 10 years ago. Their friendship starts off rocky, but there is a genuine thread of appreciation and respect between the two of them. Until the day that it all goes to crap because of Silas’ actions when it comes to Skylar’s private sanctuary, her bridge. Neither one of them ever forgot that day, even though Sky was sure that his actions meant she meant nothing to her. How wrong she was.
Both of these characters are broken, but Silas especially so. There is a sweet and vulnerable boy underneath the alpha facade, and once Sky really lets him back in, theirs becomes an epic love story.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
Writer of all things untamed, romantic and free, Ivy Wild never planned on becoming a romance novelist.
