My rating: 5 of 5 stars
David’s religion is love.
Yara’s religion is heartache.
Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.
David is a musician. Yara is his muse. Their love story isn’t a typical one. It started off a little slow for me, but once it picked up, I couldn’t put it down. It was stressful to read, heartbreaking at times, and made my heart pound and had me biting my nails to the quick. Angst lovers will devour this. I fell in love with the words. With Yara and her brokenness. And the words. It bears repeating, I fell in love with the words. My copy of AWKAP was highlighted all over the place because the words were everything.
Sometimes, love is painful. Sometimes, love really does hurt. The path to a happy ever after isn’t boy and girl meet, fall in love, and live the hea. It’s so much more than that. Sometimes it hurts.
“There is no moving on when you’re truly in love. You try and you keep trying, but that love is a stain on your life. It’s just not that easy.”
