Oh, God, oh god, ohmigod

Well written as always by Jasinda. I guess she likes the whole in love with one sibling then another comes along - I still am not over The Ever Trilogy. Never will be.
I think I was a little bit in love with Kyle. I imagine him as the boy who is the lead singer in a Spanish band called Dvicio. He's hot. Gutted!
"Hot heart-blood leaked from my face. From my eyes and my nose and my mouth. Not tears, because those would never stop. This was just liquid heartbreak seeping from my pores."
I think I was a little bit in love with Colt. I know he doesn't have long hair and he's more butch but he makes me think of Hozier. It's the guitar, lyrics, singing, and I think he's hot.
"I could write a song, and her name would be the music. I could sing, strum a guitar, and her body would be the melody."
Colt and Nell. Sigh. So much damage and baggage to fix on both parts.
"Compassion and pity are not the same: Pity is looking down on someone, feeling sorry for them and offering nothing; compassion is seeing their pain and offering them understanding."
The writing is poetic especially in the song lyrics Colt writes for Nell. Masterful character creation; I felt the pain of Colt and the utter melancholy of Nell.
"His body is a shelter, a fortress I can lose myself in. I can feel his pulse thumping in his throat against my nose, and I count the beats, wait for sleep."
"Grief slides away and slicks across the scratched laminate floor."
Really good read and it was free!
