I’ll tell you what you do.
Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.
To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.
Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.
But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.
I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.
I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.
I tried to move on without him.
But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.
Until something happened.
Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.
And nothing was the same after that.
If ever there was a story that defined the meaning of soulmates, this is it.
They were born to be together, he just had to come first so that he was old enough to take care of her. His little ribbon, his greatest accomplishment, his greatest love, his whole reason for living.
I didn't cheat, I didn't read the ending. But I knew what was going to happen. And I kept reading anyway. I needed desperately to know how their life's story ended. And I sobbed my way through it. I don't think I have cried that hard through a book in a long time. They captured my heart and I was broken along with them that fate could be that cruel. And as I write this review, I'm tearing up again thinking about Ren and Della. Their life wasn't always simple or easy, but they loved deeply and it came across in every word and page.
