“You look nervous,” he says. His hand, still in my hair, turns to my cheek. It’s warm. Smells good. “Come and sit down.” 
He takes my hand and leads me to a window seat. A built-in bench, pressed up against a wall of glass. He wraps his hands around my waist and lifts me up. Sits me down up there. My eyes scan the patchy, dirt-strewn yard outside. The way the rain smashes off the ground and into something else. The sky is white. Stark white. 
“Just a minute,” he says. 
My mind screams as he steps away. He reaches onto some shelves along the wall and grabs an armful of navy blue blankets. Painters’ blankets, I realize as he holds them out for me. He sits them on the bench beside me. Smooths one out. Lifts me up and sits me on it. Then he tucks another one behind me. 
“Thank you,” I murmur. Despite the blankets’ tattered appearance, they seem soft enough. There’s no paint on them, and they don’t smell like it. Another one unfolded by his big hands, tucked around me. 
“You got wet. Warm up a moment.” 
I sit there because my brain is broken and my heart feels puffed up like a balloon. 
He climbs up behind me and gently nudges me forward. He leans his torso up against mine, spreads his legs around my butt and thighs. Strong hands begin to knead my shoulders. 
“Don’t be nervous here, Angel. I’ll take care of you. Always.”

Nikki Rae... what can I say? After the Sunshine Series, I'll be hooked on her work so I was excited when I read that she was releasing a series of short novellas. Now, I have a serious love/hate relationship with a book broken down into novella parts. It never fails - just when I'm starting to get invested in the characters, it's over. I hate that. But I also love how I'm so antsy to get my hands on the next part. It's often like a sweet form of torture.

This series is no different.

After reading part 1, I was so frustrated because I was really starting to get into the story. The characters are very calm and there isn't a ton of turmoil going on so it's a peaceful read despite the tragic plot. We meet the main character, Casey. She's more adult for her age than most folks I know. But she has to be. She's sick. She knows this. She only has a few months left to live. So what does she do? She signs up for Mytruematch.com to try and spend her last days alive earning money for her mother & father. It's heartbreaking. But she's accepted it. She would love to just not be alone... She doesn't want to let her family know because she doesn't want to break their hearts at this point and drag them down. I loved her. I envied her strength & perseverance. She was such a smooth character so reading her POV was effortless. Then you meet Jonah... What can I say about him? He's such a mystery.... His calm personality just sucks me right in and lulls me into a sort of reading coma. Am I the only one that does that on occasion? A character's just so calm and reassuring that you continue to read without really putting any effort into it... You just get sucked into the lull of the character's personality and, although you've read for 2 hours straight, you feel like you've only read for 5 minutes. 

Then you get into part 2. This installment just grabbed me and had me sinking into the plot. I didn't want it to end. That's the "bitter" part of novellas... you have your bitter and your sweet. Bitter because it ends entirely too soon. Sweet because you're left on the edge and wanting more. More More More! I honestly didn't think that I could become so invested in a set of characters in such a quick amount of time. That's exactly what happened though. I became so attached to them after part 2 and hated to see it end. You see the characters start to build a sort of relationship with one another.


I truly cannot waitttttt for more.

So overall, both parts 1 & 2, I have to give 5 stars to.... They simply drew me in and kept me glued to the pages. I loved the characters. So far, I'm loving the plot.
