My Review of No Tomorrow by Carian Cole, M



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. 

So I usually write reviews as soon as I finish the book. There is no rhyme or reason to this. I am not one to procrastinate so it's easier for me to do it this way. With No Tomorrow I had to wait a day, I don't know why I just couldn't write this yesterday.
I'm kind of on a Carian Cole kick, I read Talon and I just got addicted. You know what's funny is that I really don't like rockstar books in general and I don't like guys with long hair but every book of hers that I've read so far has these characters and I fucking love them.
I think that everyone who reads this should go in blind just like Carian Cole recommends. Even if you read the synopsis you have no idea what you're up against. I'm going to give a little bit of the back story so if you want to really go in blind and are reading my review stop reading now.
I read the synopsis like an idiot so I knew that Evan was going to go from being homeless to rockstar status, I just didn't know when. At first I'm thinking how can Piper be with this homeless guy, I didn't see how it was going to make sense in the beginning but holy shit does Evan make you fall in love with him. I can't even put into words the feels that this book gave me.
"I don't want to, but I will. And you'll keep letting me." He brushes my lips across mine. "You falling in love with me will destroy us both."
I want to also go on record to say I hate crying in books especially if it's for a sad reason and I rarely do cry. Well yesterday morning was real fun because I was nearly halfway through this book and I came to a part where I tried to control my tears so bad but couldn't. I had to pop on sunglasses to walk my kids to the bus stop (it was sunny out anyway lol). Luckily my neighbors know I'm a crazy reader but seriously I couldn't control it.
I apologize if this review is all over the place but after reading it, I feel like my emotions are all over the place damnit.
I feel like another common theme with Carian's female characters is that they're really compassionate and with me if the writing isn't good that can be confused with weakness which is something I hate in a heroine. With Piper I wanted to scream at her but also understood why she kept taking Evan back (Evan keeps fucking up by the way). When all is said and done, she stood her ground when she needed to.
This book has so much emotion, so much angst, it's just everything. If you think you're going to be reading your typical romance book with this one just forget it. No Tomorrow touches on real life problems and it's like the whole time you're waiting for the other shoe to drop and when it does DAMN.
"Your heart is my home. The way you look at me, the way you make me feel, is my home."
I know this review doesn't do this book justice but it was really hard for me to find the words to do so. Just know I haven't felt this way about a book in a long time and will be encouraging all my book friends to read it. Carian Cole has now become a favorite author of mine. I'm so glad I discovered her books even if I am late in the game!!!

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. 
And hoping.

Again.
