Toby Hawthorne was an enigma.
One I didn’t factor into my college plans.

I wasn’t looking for love.
I wasn’t not looking for it either.
And in that state of in-between, he found me.

Unaware of the battle he fought everyday, I fell fast.
By the time I found out, it was too late.
Because I wanted everything.
Every broken, lost part of him.

I knew I couldn’t fix him.
I could only love him.
But I should’ve known better than to think that was enough.


Once again Ella Fields has captivated me whole body, heart, and soul with yet another one of her stories. I still can’t believe that it has taken me this long to read her books, but now that I have started there is no way I am stopping until I reach the end of her backlist! Her storytelling is beautifully unique and unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. She is hands down going to be another one of my top one-click authors from here on out. She is forever stuck with me, whether she wants to be or not 😉.

Move over Daisy and Quinn because Pippa and Toby have entered the picture now…and they may have just dethroned you, but don’t worry I still love you both so freaking much! My love for Pippa first began back in Suddenly Forbidden and continued to blossom throughout my reading of Bittersweet Always. I thought I loved her before, but nothing could compare to the feelings I had towards her during this story. Her character was just EVERYTHING and I was left breathless scene after scene witnessing her strength. Now Toby…oh my dear sweet Toby. Just like Pippa you managed to wiggle your way deep inside my heart and firmly planted yourself there to stay. I wept for you the entire time I read this story and in many ways I felt as if I experienced all of your struggles towards mental health right alongside you. Your journey spoke to me and will hold a special place in my heart for years to come.

If I thought Daisy and Quinn’s story pulled on my heartstrings, then Pippa and Toby’s story obliterated them into nothingness. These two are both strong and their strength left me breathless time and time again! Their story has a lot of unexpected twists and turns with some dark times in between. This might not be an easy book to read for some readers because it does deal with some sensitive sides to mental health, but Ella Field writes it in such a way that it makes an impact in our lives. This story is a MUST READ for all New Adult/College fans!
