The mystery of love is greater than the mystery of death.
~Oscar Wilde~Adoration is not profound enough a word to express the depth of my love for her. From the moment she walked into my life and set my heart and soul on fire, not a day’s gone by that she hasn’t plagued my every thought.
We were each other’s completion. She was everything I wasn’t–the sigh to my roar, the virtue to my sin, the cure to my wounds.
We Were One.
Until the unthinkable happened.
That I’ve survived such a tragedy without having completely lost it, is a mystery in itself. But as my mind starts to blur the lines between reality and my delusional heart, I begin to question everything, including my sanity.
And then the real mystery begins . . .
When I first picked up this book, I wasn’t 100% sure what I was getting myself into. I didn’t read the first book in this series, so I was pretty much going into this story blind.
One of the first things that drew me to this story was the synopsis. It intrigued me. I loved the mystery of it and could not wait to dive into the story. We Were One is told from the male point of view and follows the story of Nico. He falls in love young and fast. She was his everything until one day, fate had other plans…..Nico’s story is one of love, heartache and loss. It is a story of moving on and hope. It is a story that will make you question everything and will have you on the edge of your seat. You will feel so many emotions. And just when you think you have an idea of what is going on, the floor will be ripped out from under you and your mind will be blown. I can’t even wrap my mind around the twist or imagine what was going through Nico’s mind. It was that good.
We Were One was a well written and intriguing read. I read it easily in just one sitting. It played with my emotions and took me for one heck of a ride. Overall, I thought this was a good read and enjoyed getting lost in the story this author created.
