We meet Bliss when she is a little girl starting over at a new school and she is literally almost ran over by Becka, who later becomes her best friend. That is also when she meets 'him' Dusty. From the very moment Bliss meets Dusty they have this instant pull and over the years is becomes more present and starts to develop into something more than brother and sisterly love. But as Dusty grows into a young man we see the many struggles youth often go through. It was realistic, he made me think of my teen years and all the crazy shit I did. You can relate to the characters and what they go through. You are often yelling at them and pissed off. Many times I get so mad at Bliss, why do you take his shit? why don't you leave, and then I get mad when she doesn't want to come forth with the relationship and that makes Dusty spiral even deeper down the rabbit hole. But I understand, she is young, naive, in love and doesn't know better. She is full of guilt and shame and doesn't know what to do. And Dusty, that sexy delinquent is a pain in the ass most days. What he puts Bliss through breaks your heart. What he goes through breaks your heart. Knowing he is the way he is because of all he has went through is something no one should ever go through. He doesn't help matters and neither does Bliss. But these two are meant to be together. They love each other, they are just young and need to learn the right way to love and being a healthy relationship. By the end of this book I am getting more and more proud of Bliss and I just want everyone happy and healthy. This book is one of the most amazing, touching and real books I have ever read and I honestly think everyone will love it as much as I do. Cannot wait for October and Dusty #2!
Could not put it down once I started. Be prepared to laugh, cry and get frustrated. And be prepared to fall irrevocably in love with Dusty, Bliss and their story of love and heart break <3
"But it's too late to call him Filthy, because he's already Dusty."
"We don't pull wings off butterflies." ( I may or may not have this tattooed on my body ;-) it`s totally worth it!
"Tell me a secret." "I love you."
"You're my safe spot." "You have my heart. There's nothing else."
"She's my softer side, and I'm her motherfucking monster."
"I'm not afraid of your china-muffin. I'll touch it." ( bahahaha I love Becka! one of my most favorite characters in the book! )
