He softly took a hold of both my wrists and looked at them, rubbing the tattoos lightly. I saw the anguish in his eyes. I rolled over as the morphine settled through my body and I was able to step out of bed and slowly walked over to the window. I want to thank you for being my best friend and my lover. I have had nothing but pain and loss my whole life. But now I know why god saved me the first time. It was so I could find you. Then he saved me the second time so I could love you forever.
This house is perfect; you are perfect and no one will ever take that away from us.
I finally showered and stood in front of the bathroom mirror. I took my hand and wiped the steam that formed over it. I looked at myself for the first time in days. My ice blue eyes-which Kyle used to tell me reminded him of the sea-looked tired with bags that formed underneath them. I ran a brush through my long, blonde hair and then fingered mousse through it so that it dried wavy.
I put on some makeup to try to hide the fact that I'd been depressed and locked in my apartment for a week. I stepped into my favorite jeans and was surprised they were loose in places they never were before.
My five-foot-seven, size four body appeared to have shrunk a bit since the breakup. I tore through my closet for my favorite pink shirt. Once I was ready, I took in a deep breath and called a cab.
It was time to step out into the world and start my life again. Manny pulled his yellow cab up to the curb of my apartment as I walked out the door. Seeing me struggle with the three paintings that I was carrying, he got out of the cab to help me. Manny was my favorite cab driver, and I'd known him since I moved to New York. When I called a cab, I always asked for Manny. Sometimes he was available, and sometimes he wasn't. He stood about five-foot-ten with a muscular build.
He always wore his black hair in a ponytail, and his brown eyes always sparkled when I'd ask him about his kids. He was a family man and one of the nicest people that I'd ever met. His cab was the one that first picked me and Kyle up when we arrived in New York. I sat in front of the cab with him so that my paintings could sit comfortably in the back. Kyle doing, Elle? The expression on his face was sympathetic. Are you okay? I was a mess last week, but now, I'm adjusting.
Or was I just a good actress? He pulled up to the art gallery and helped me take the paintings out of the cab. I paid him the fare and thanked him for his help. Then, he got into the cab and slowly pulled away. Peyton saw me from the window of the gallery and came outside to help me bring in the paintings. She called the owner, Sal, and told him that I had arrived.
He came down from his office and kissed me on both cheeks. I was contracted to submit three paintings to his gallery as a trial. One of the paintings was a romanticism of a man and woman dancing under the moonlight and surrounded by clouds. The second painting was of a garden with a fountain surrounded by beautiful flowers. The last painting was of a child in a white dress sitting in a field of flowers as three angels looked down upon her from the sky.
All three paintings spoke something about me. I'm sure I won't have any problem selling these. I felt a little embarrassed because this was the first time that I was going to be showing my work to the world. He led me over to a small wall that was sitting bare.
I will call you as soon as one or all of them sell. Going out was the last thing on my mind. I wasn't ready to do the single girl out at night thing, but Peyton was persistent, and I knew I didn't stand a chance against her.
So, I hesitantly agreed. I left the gallery and started walking down the street. I fumbled through my large purse to find my ringing cell phone. I grabbed it and looked at the familiar number that found its way to my phone a little too much lately.
I hit ignore and decided to walk the six blocks home.
It wasn't long before the new voicemail alert lit up my phone. By the time I made it home, I was exhausted. I threw my keys and purse on the table next to the door and listened to the message that so annoyingly remained on my screen.
Taub calling. I noticed that you've cancelled the last two appointments since your last visit. I want to make sure that you're still coming to see me. It is vital that we talk about this. I can help you, Ellery. Please call my office to set up an appointment as soon as possible. I walked to the bedroom and decided to lie down for a while as the six-block walk home took its toll on me. I had only been sleeping for about an hour when I awoke to the sound of my ringing phone.
Chapter 3 "Hello," I sleepily answered. Connor Black, emotionally dead and damaged Aaaww, my favourite type of hero Connor Black, I love you already!!! View all 31 comments. This book was amazing. It had it all. I laughed, smiled alot I cried and most of all I fell in love with this couple. It was a beautiful read filled with lots of emotion.
I am so glad I had the opportunity to read this wonderul book. A must read people. If you haven't read it stop what you are doing pick up your copy and read it.
View all 52 comments. Let me start off by saying that I really enjoyed this story. I liked how Connor and Ellery met and I just plain liked how Ellery did her own thing and didn't bow down to anyone. That being said, there is a lot going on in and maybe even a bit too much. Also, while usually spelling and grammar don't usually bother me, I had a hard time with a few things in this book.
Ell Let me start off by saying that I really enjoyed this story. Ellery was refreshing and surprising because at first, I thought she was just going to be another needy girl.
She had been with her boyfriend for four years and not really been on her own, so she was upset when they broke up but I'm glad she snapped out of it. I loved all the interactions with Connor while they were 'friends'.
How she made him eat a hot dog and pizza with his fingers and eat ice cream!! How she didn't let him order her around. Connor started off as a jerk I liked that Ellery brought out another side of him and I loved that he was there for Ellery even when she said she didn't want him to be. Ellery and Connor were great together but boy, could they fight!
Like Denny said, they are both really stubborn! It was hard because instead of talking things out, they would take off. Connor is used to getting his way but he has also had some things happen to him that has caused him to close himself off. Ellery has had a rough life and it's caused her to not allow other people to treat her badly. It leads to some interesting moments and maybe some that were a little over the top.
There is a lot of drama. Both Connor and Ellery have things and people in their pasts that they haven't been honest about. It was really great seeing them try to work things out. I loved Peyton I liked how she would help set things straight with Ellery and like she said, that's what best friends are for.
The paintings that Ellery did added a special touch to the story especially a certain one that was included in the epilogue. I was a surprised that she wasn't upset at what happened with the first three paintings.
The epilogue made me really happy. It was a win-win-win.
I can't wait!! Favorite quotes: You make me feel things I never have before. This is my forever to you. View all 30 comments. He was sweet, caring and amazing. I really liked his character, It was just super good.. It had a nice flow. The side characters were amazing. I totally loved Elle's fiesty nature, it was refreshing.. Conner and Ellery was simply ment to be, totally amazing and beautiful. This would have totally been a 5 star read for me, but somethings about this book was off, hence the 4 stars!
Some parts about this book which were I think intended to make us cry, didn't make me, like the emotional level of this book should have been higher according to me.. At times the pace was weird, but it was cool.. He wasn't emotionally dead and damaged as promised in the summary: View all 8 comments. This was an ok read for me.
I liked a lot about Ellery. She was spunky and sarcastic and didn't let anyone push her around. I liked Connor too, most of the time,but I never felt like we actually got to know him.
I liked how their relationship started. I enjoyed that they were friends first.
I didn't understand Ellery managing to fall in love with Connor when she knew basically zero about him since he basically shared zero about himself with her until much later in the book I saw the twist coming This was an ok read for me. I didn't understand Ellery managing to fall in love with Connor when she knew basically zero about him since he basically shared zero about himself with her until much later in the book I saw the twist coming.
I was seriously irritated with Connor's reaction. He did a couple of things, usually when they were fighting, that just ticked me off. Maybe if I felt like I knew him better, it wouldn't have bothered me so much, but it did. I hated the way they fought. When something happened, it was a huge explosion, and they both went for the jugular. I was particularly unexcited the time he called her a bitch and a slut.
It drove me insane that she always ran away when things got tough and I hated that he let her sometimes. They just seemed really really dysfunctional. Now, this would not have bothered me so much, except it is never resolved, After each dramatic blowup, they come back together, but nothing is ever discussed or resolved - so not shockingly, it happens again and again.
This is why I couldn't even get really excited by the ending. Once again, their issues are never really addressed, and we should just be happy with the rushed HEA. Oh, and one other thing view spoiler [. What was up with the psychic aunt and her knowing that Ellery was sick.
Could there not have been a more normal way for it to come out? And what was with him being with the twin sister of the chick that killed herself. It just seemed insanely out if character. View all 12 comments. Feb 18, Stella rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm really sad to say that, but I'd be lying if I said any differently. Why would you need 7 dead people and two pairs of Twins?
Yup, same here. No clue. A total bummer. Ellie started witty and fun, ended up egotistical and whiny. I don't mean to sound heartless, I think her condition was very sad and I am sure lots of people will relate to her 'state', but I still don't understand why SO MUCH drama.
Isn't one character on deathbed enough? Will I read other books from this author, Why not? I just hope the next books have fewer dead people and more LOVE and focus on the characters and their relationship. View 1 comment. Feb 19, Mo rated it it was ok. I know I am in the minority here but this did not do it for me at all. First off, I found the writing a bit stilted This may seem like nit-picking but if I am paying for a books I am expecting something. There seemed to be too much going on here.
Maybe I have had my fill of billionaires, taking charge, younger woman who is less well off than the hero. Yep, think my days of YA and NA books are over. The heroine was just too emotional, going from one extreme to the other - OK, she had a lot to be emotional about. And the Aunt and her proclamations. Sorry - hate to put a downer on a first time author but I feel I have to give an honest opinion. View all 7 comments.
Feb 24, Wicked Nyx rated it did not like it Shelves: The first third of the book, I spent half of my time being jarred out of the story by the strange lack of contractions. The book is written in first person POV and even the inner dialogue was strangely bereft of contractions. How many people sound so utterly formal all the time, not only when speaking, but also when thinking?
We learn nothing about his motivations or his inner self and it seems to serve no purpose in the story arc. Every time they have a fight it turns into the sacking of Carthage, including the razing of the city and the salting of the earth. No small disagreements, just global thermonuclear war followed by one or both of them leaving.
And then with very little growth or development, magically they get back together and are having sex. And speaking of the sex, this was a very un-erotic book of erotica. The following excerpts are from a single two-page section: He gently inserted his finger in me and feeling the wetness before inserting another. I gasped at the pleasure and arched my back for him to go deeper. He reached his hands around and grabbed my breasts, squeezing them and pinching each nipple before moving his hand down and rubbing my aching spot.
All their sex scenes are like this - short, barely descriptive and supremely UN-sexy. And you can also see the profound lack of good comma usage. I would rather have too many commas than the extreme dearth of commas that this book presents to the reader. I found myself having to read sentences several times in order to get the right meaning. I think the author might also be unaware of the use of the apostrophe in order to show possession - instead of Connor's plane, it is Connors plane; instead of Connor's penthouse, it is Connors penthouse I don't know if I saw a single correctly used apostrophe to show possession in the entire book.
Feb 21, Crista rated it really liked it Shelves: Original Review posted at: This one really got to me and I'm glad I had a tissue box handy while reading. Forever Black again goes "back to the well" and features a multi-millionare hero. Connor is CEO of his own company, sexy as all get out, and has commitment issues. Sound familiar? Well, don't be too quick to judge, as that is where the similarities to so much of what is out there I loved so many things about this book.
First and foremost, Eller Original Review posted at: First and foremost, Ellery and Connor are great friends before they become lovers. This slow developing relationship feels natural and "right". They are in some ways very opposite, and Elle teaches Connor a lot about what it means to live.
She's an artist and a free spirit compared to Connor's more serious and rule following ways. She challenges him in such fun ways, and watching a man who only uses women for pleasure begin to truly care for a woman gave me all sorts of warm fuzzies. The friendship between these characters was amazing.
This book is a tearjerker. The complexity and challenges that this relationship face because of this fact sets this book apart from all the rest. The emotions, reactions, and conflict involving Elle's health felt very real to me.
I appreciated where both characters were coming from and the resulting internal turmoil they experienced. Elle and Connor are strong characters.
They stand up for themselves and what they believe in. Some reviewers have mentioned that their arguments became bothersome, but for me, their arguments added to the authenticity of the relationship. I believed in this couple.
This is a spicy book with no kink. Connor is straight vanilla with no BDSM tendencies. The story is told in first person from Elle's viewpoint, except for one chapter that without warning switches to Connor's POV. I have to admit that this was a bit strange. Some may be bothered by the editing, but it wasn't bad enough to affect my enjoyment or my recommendation. Overall, just a very lovely and believable story of a "meant to be" couple.
