Behind the Bars Wrap
When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.
Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.
Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.
Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.
When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, she was the darkest storm.
By the way, what happened to Todd’s nose?” I asked. “I broke it,” Elliott said matter-of-factly. “What? How? Why?” He shrugged before turning to look out the window. “He called you a bad name.” “What was it?” “It doesn’t matter.” “Eli,” I started. He turned my way and locked his hazel eyes with my browns. “Jazz…” He shook his head. “It wasn’t true.” I swallowed hard, a big part of me certain Todd’s words held some form of truth. Elliott saw it in me—my fear. He kept shaking his head and whispered, “I don’t feel sorry for you. Sometimes you look at me like you think I feel sorry for you, and I want you to know I don’t. I think you’re perfect the way you are.” I quietly laughed at him repeating the words I’d told him earlier. A few tears rolled down my cheeks. “I’m a little messed up.” “I know.” He nodded. “That’s why I like you.” He went back to staring out the window, and I kept staring at him. And there it was. So small, so tiny, so real. Love. It wasn’t love, but it was the beginning of it. I knew I was young, and I knew it was stupid, but in that moment, I began to fall in love with the quiet boy who quietly cared for me. The boy who was scared and still strong. The boy who stood up for me when he was surrounded by reasons not to do such a thing. I hadn’t known much about love. I hadn’t known how it looked, felt, or tasted. I hadn’t known how it moved, how it flowed, but I knew my heart was tight and currently skipping a few beats. I understood the goose bumps covering my arms. I knew this stuttering boy who was sometimes so scared was someone worth loving. He was worth being the first one I gave my heart to. I knew Elliott Adams was love. And I was falling into him so fast. BCC_AVAILABLENOW

Hauntingly Beautiful!!!

Have you ever sat back after reading a really good book and just couldn't put into words how happy you felt? That was me after I finished this book. I have been having a really hard time with books as of late. I don't know what it is but nothing seems to catch my interest. Then this book! WHOA! I mean seriously I wish I understood how Brittainy C. Cherry's mind words because WHOA! Right from the get go this book was different. 

Okay, now I have to say I hated Jasmine's mom, like LOATHE that woman. I wanted to choke her. Sorry I really needed to get that out.

Alright, let's see I adored Eli. He was just the sweetest thing and I wanted to wrap my arms around him. 

Poor Jasmine, her mom was a heinous bitch. But I loved her dad Ray...he was a Ray of sunshine 😂😂 (I'm so funny). 

Oh and TJ...he's my heart LOVE HIM!!

There are two parts of this book. I seriously cried like 2 times in that first part. I about died and wanted to  throw my kindle during certain parts because some people are just total assholes and I could feel the pain of certain characters through the pages. Ugh! 

The second part OMG! I was already heart broken but this second part had me in a fetal position crying. ALL OF THE FEELS! I was so glad for Jasmine for finally doing something she should have long before and I was glad that she had her dad. Eli, oh Eli! If I wanted to hug him in the first part the second part wanted me to do everything in my power to make sure he was going to be ok. 

Honestly this would make for such a great movie. I don't usually care for book to movie adaptations but this one would be amazing especially because of the issues that were brought up. I cried so many times. I ugly cried so many times. It was a hauntingly beautiful. Every second, every moment was packed with unforgettable words that either lifted me up or broke me down. I absolutely love Brittainy C. Cherry, she has proven time and again that she knows how to write beautiful books that pack a punch! 

Now if you know me and my rating you know I hardly give out 5 hearts. I think the last one was Angie Thomas' The Hate U Give, but this book deserves it and so many more!!!
