This is a beautifully written, sensitive story of loss, friendship and love. I could not put down this book, and ended up reading it in one sitting. I loved these two strong characters and rooted for them right from the beginning.4 Star

Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl who is seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving, and besides, opposites attract. What starts as friendship turns into admiration, respect, and caring, until finally these two lone souls find that they are truly in love with each other. But staying in love is never as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they’re going to have to work at it . . .  — Extract from Goodreads.com


  1. Oh I’ve been itching to read this one. And I must say I prefer this cover to a previous edition that I’ve seen. So glad to hear you enjoyed it! Dylan and Gray sound like characters I’d definitely like!
