She was my first love.
She was my first hate.
The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty.
Until I dimmed her light for good…
Or so I thought.
Now she’s back.
Cracked. Broken. Lost.
And for the first time in a long time, I feel free.
Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future.
Her misery is my music.
Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating.
For so long, all I’ve done is hate her.
So why do I love her?

Audio-book: Narrators – Erin Mallon and Noah Michael Levine These narrators do an exceptional job with this book! Filled with lots of dark angst and turmoil, both narrators brought the characters to life as their voices filled with hate, passion, anger, and love. I enjoyed every syllable of this story as Ms. Mallon and Mr. Levine shine in their presentation of Courtney and Rome. This read pulled me in and kept me with its dark tone and super angsty drama. There were layers upon layers to this story and I was so anxious to just get to the end so I could learn what had truly happened. My emotions were all over this bully to lovers story, which is usually not my style. In order for this trope to work for me there has to be a true, heartfelt shift from the hero. I felt that Rome did indeed make the switch. Most likely because despite all the history between them, he has always been drawn to her. Although there wasn’t a lot of groveling on the road to forgiveness, I was satisfied with the outcome. This has a lot of steam that is steeped in a bit of darkness, so beware. The secondary characters were necessary and vital to the story without taking over. I did feel that Courtney rolled over too easily for Rome in the beginning but through character growth she became a woman that could stand up for herself. I loved that about her!
This book broke me. I was not mentally prepared when I opened it, and boy, did it bring me to my knees. This book didn't just pull me in...it spoke to my heart. My soul cried out in understanding. I will say that "The Day She Cried" was very well written and it will take you on the roller coaster of your life. Grab tissues and enjoy the ride.
Twisted and beautiful. Not sure how the author does it, but as disturbing as the context can get she makes it utterly poetic and perfect. Love her, love her words, love her stories.
