The problem with heartache is that there's no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you've dreamt about the could have-the should have-nothing will console you. Because seconds later, you remember. And remembering can rip you apart. *** Kate will do anything for her family. It's why she took the job with Lee. It's why she's attempting to forget her pain. But it's hard to forget, when you're desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package. Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It's why he hired Kate. It's why he keeps his secrets, and it's why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate-not with anyone.

I made my sister choose an ebook from my Kindle for me to read, because I have like 70plus ebooks stored in it. And she chose this book. The first thing I’ll say (more like, YELL) to her the moment she comes home will be YOU. YOU CHOSE THIS BOOK. THIS BOOK BROKE MY HEART. YOU CHOSE THIS BOOK.

HAHA. But yes. Sigh, them FEEEELS made me cry at my best friend’s hostel. I am SO NOT HAPPY with this book, but on the other hand, I am so so in love with this book. I love this book because of how it touches on the topic of being crazy. People used that word loosely, never really understanding the definition of crazy. But honestly, WHAT does crazy mean?
Kate thought she had EVERYTHING. She had her life figured out. She’s graduating and going on tour with her almost-famous boyfriend. Her life was near-perfect, until her dad crashed her graduation day ceremony. DRUNK. She thought having him embarrassed her in front of everyone was bad enough, but things got worse when he reveals about his mental illness.
What’s worse? That illness is hereditary. So Kate has a fifty percent chance of going loco like her dad. I think what I adored about this book is the way the story was being told. I know that there are A LOT of books out there, touching on suicidal, death and illnesses. But what makes this book UNIQUE is how the book flowed really nicely. AND THE ENDING. As much as I honestly HATE the ending, it kinda makes sense. This book is a must-read. It placed you in the shoes of people who had a sick family member, and I think it makes me realize that no matter how bad someone seemed in their terminal state, they’re still human. And sometimes as much as we want to be mad at them for screwing things up, it isn’t intentional. SIGH. READ THIS BOOK GUYS. YOU NEED IT.
AND YOU NEED LOADS OF TISSUES TOO. LOADS AND LOADS.
