♥︎ An Emotional New STANDALONE by Carian Cole ♥︎
No Tomorrow by Carian Cole is available now!
Get your tissues ready…
The people we love are thieves.
They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.
They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.
He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.
He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.
I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.
Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.
But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.
You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.
I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.
He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.
*** AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED ***
No Tomorrow was heartbreakingly beautiful. Ms. Cole drew me in from the beginning of this book and didn’t let me go until it was finished. In the moments I was forced to put it down to tend to life I couldn’t stop thinking about Piper and Blue (Evan). Their story was full of pain, angst, and undying love and spoke to my soul in a way few books are able. I felt like this was an important story to tell for so many reasons and is definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year.
At the heart of it No Tomorrow is a sweeping love story, but in reality, it is so much more than that. It’s a tale of hurt and healing, of loyalty and loss, of freedom and forever; No Tomorrow traversed the deep waters of anguish and joy with equal grace, and I was enamored with the extent of emotion this book drug me through. My heart both wept with tears of happiness for the kind of love Piper and Evan shared and was shattered by the torture they had to endure because of that love.
Mental illness is an issue that is very near and dear to my heart. I love it when I read a book that treats it with respect and brings awareness to what living with it is like, rather than using it as a crutch to make a character quirky. Carian Cole did a phenomenal job of portraying what the life of someone suffering from mental illness is like and how it affects everyone around them. I am absolutely in awe of how wonderful this book was, and I know I’ll be thinking about No Tomorrow for some time.
No Tomorrow was gritty and angsty; it dealt with some of the hardest subject matter there is, but never once did any of those things feel like they were used gratuitously. Each time the book delved into mental illness, drug use, or profound depression it was moving the story forward, giving the reader clarity to what loving someone who suffers from those afflictions can be like. It was often gut-wrenching, but I loved that Piper dealt with Evan and his demons with dignity and never let the bad come between them.
While I own several Carian Cole books, No Tomorrow is the first of her works that I’ve read, and I was completely blown away. The writing was fabulous, the story astonishing in its beauty and depth, and the characters amongst some of the most well-developed I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know in romance. This story, this author, this writing will be the standard by which similar books are measured, for me, for a very long time.
I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts.
My first novel in the best-selling Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published in September of 2014. I have many books and sequels slated for this series. My new spin-off series, Devils Wolves, launched in 2016 with the best-selling novel, Torn. There are several books planned for this series as well.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
