Pretentious. Arrogant. Condescending. Cruel.
All words I'd used to label him. Exactly what I’d always believed he was. All that changed one spring morning when I realized I didn't know the man behind the facade at all.
Angry. Desperate. Broken. Mine.
All words I'd use to define him after I interfered. Once our eyes locked, I was all in. There was no turning back. He tried to push me away, but I refused to let him go. I was determined to save him. What I didn't expect was that he would save me, too.
I was so close to ending my misery. Mere seconds away. Then she stumbled upon our argument, and I changed my plans. She wasn't supposed to be there. She knew too much. Even with my entire world burning down around me, she wouldn't walk away.
I’ve always been on my own. No one had ever fought for me before. Why should anyone start now? But she did, no matter how much I tried to stop her. I knew I was nothing, unworthy of her, but she was persistent. Once she got under my skin, I couldn't let her go, because where I end, she begins.

Before you start this make sure to block a few hours off. Because you'll be pissed if you have to put it down. This is not a book to read in pieces.
Eve went thru high school miserable and lonely. Her only friend she knew was using her to get to Cy. Cy was Eve's bully. Only he called her Evie. Everyday he made a point to find her and torment her. She didn't know why. Her only reasoning was Cy and his friends were from the rich part town, with the rich families and she wasn't. Her mom was Cy's moms assistant and he reminded her of it daily.
Six years later and Eve is still in town. When her family moved she took over her moms job. His mom works out of her house. She ends up seeing Cy everyday and with another woman on his arm. Eve hates to admit it to herself but it kills her. Eve would give anything for Cy to notice her for more then the poor girl who has no friends.

Just as Cy's about to throw his hands up and let go something shocking happens to him. His Evie appears outta nowhere. When she gives him her hand he's shocked. But, he takes it and Evie takes him out of his living hell. It's then that he can finally start to breathe and with the girl he's always wanted but couldn't have.
Eve was bullied everyday of her high school. But, that didn't make her a timid little thing. She stuck up for herself and the people she cared about. Once she knew the story of Cy's bullying she was totally OK with it. She's a better woman then I am.
Cy was a broken man. Has been broken for most of his life. But, with the help of his Evie and best friend Parker he learns to live. And, the smiles and laughter he faked all those years, stopped being fake.
This story was filled with SO many emotions. Michelle did something you don't read or watch often on TV. She didn't give you the broken girl. The one who's been abused both physically and verbally. No, it was the other way around. She wrote this story in such a way that you'll feel it days after you finish it.
