They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.

He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.

He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.

I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.

Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.

But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.

You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.

I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.

He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.
And hoping.
Again.

If memories had a flavor, ours would be salt and blood.

Oh.
Oh wow.
Just WOW.
I feel like I’ve just been through an emotional rollercoaster. My heart hurts. My hands are shaking. My head feels fuzzy. And I’m so in love with this incredible story that I can’t even think of how to begin reviewing it.

I love you like there’s no tomorrow.”

I’ve never read this author before, but when I first saw the blurb for this book a few months ago, I knew this would be my first book by her. It hooked me immediately. Then I started reading it and I was DONE FOR. It sucked me right into its dark depths and didn’t let me up until the very last page.

This man is a drug and I’m an addict. I’m high on him and us, lost in the twirling world around me, every smell, sight, and touch heightened and vivid and so incredibly disconnected and hazy.

The story spans years and spares no emotional detail. Piper and Blue first meet when she’s only 21 years old and she spots a beautiful homeless man with a haunting presence playing guitar in the park that she frequents. Their connection is immediate. The two of them couldn’t be more opposite, but you know what they say about that. Piper is the good girl to Blue’s bad boy vibes, and the attraction between them sparks to life and entwines them in a fiery connection. Piper tries to understand the complexities behind Blue’s eyes, but you always get the sense that there’s something dark and painful that’s brewing beneath the surface with him. He’s a recovering addict and a troubled musician. He loves Piper in the only way he knows how. But love isn’t enough to keep their tattered peaces from scattering in the wind.

But what we have is a real love. It’s dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. This love—our love—is a love that never dies. It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before.

Spanning fourteen years, No Tomorrow tells the story of their up and downs. And boy were there a lot of downs. A part of me wanted to hate Blue for his choices, but a bigger part of me just couldn’t. This is a troubled man with many demons. I respect the author so much for not glossing over his issues. You get all of it; the good, the bad, and the worse. And while the story is told in predominantly Piper’s POV, the few snippets we get inside of Blue’s mind are incredibly potent.

She’s the glue that held all my jagged cracks together, and I love her endlessly for it. Unfortunately, I’ve always known that eventually I’d break myself all over again and she’d be left with nothing but pieces.

I fell in love with these characters. My heart ached right along with them. I rooted for them, I cried with them, and I was a ball of anxiety just thinking about how their story may end.

No Tomorrow is a hauntingly beautiful romance full of depth and emotion. It was utterly captivating and sucked you right into the story. It was a book I won’t be forgetting any time soon and one that I can’t recommend enough. Blue was a rockstar unlike any I’ve ever read. If you’re looking for something different and that’ll make you feel, you’ve definitely found your next read.

I fell hard and fast for her. She haunted me; lived in the fabric of my soul and inspired all the emotions and words that had always eluded me. 

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts.

My first novel in the best-selling Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published in September of 2014. I have many books and sequels slated for this series. My new spin-off series, Devils Wolves, launched in 2016 with the best-selling novel, Torn. There are several books planned for this series as well.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
