He came back to me 16 minutes and 59 seconds into Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7.
We parted amid tragedy, so it seemed poetic. Dylan O’Dea, my childhood sweetheart, had once meant everything to me. Now we were strangers, and honestly, after eleven years I never thought I’d see him again.
I lived in the world of the average, of getting paid by the hour and budgeting to make ends meet. But Dylan, he lived in the world of wealth and success. He’d achieved the great things I always suspected he would. The dissatisfaction he’d felt as a teenager had obviously been an excellent motivator.
He started a business from scratch, pioneered a brand, and created perfumes adored by women across the globe. I was just one of the people who’d been there before. Now he was living his best life in the after.
And me, well, I’d been in a dark place for a while. Slowly but surely, I was letting the light back in, but there was something missing. I was an unfinished sentence with an ellipsis at the end. And maybe, if I was brave enough to take the chance, Dylan could be my happy ending.
How the Light Gets In is Book #2 and the concluding instalment in L.H. Cosway’s Cracks duet.
God, I liked the first book in this duet, but I freaking loved this one. So so much. Because of the character development. I just adored how the author had Dylan and Evelyn virtually switch roles. This time he was the day to her night. And man, a grown up Dylan was just so dang super swoony. I’ll never know how Evelyn managed to hold out on him so long this book. I couldn’t have done it. Thank you LH Cosway for always managing to make your books so incredibly original. The perfume aspects of this book were freaking awesome. I just never know what I am going to get with this author as far as story lines go. Will I be sitting in a cabaret watching a man dressed as a woman? Will I be traveling on a train with a circus? Or will I be in a boardroom in a business suit across from the man I love? I just never know. But what I do know is that I get incredible writing and even better stories that I haven’t read anywhere else.
