Heroes fall. Peter first came to the tiny backwater of Daisy, California, as a child, and he was sure of one thing: his cousin Michael would take care of him. When Michael started a friendship with the fragile, haunted Bodi Kovacs, Peter's consolation in losing any claim to Bodi was that Michael would care for him too. But tragedy struck, and Michael ripped himself out of their world and threw away the people who loved him most. Six years later, Michael is coming home in a box. All it took to destroy a hero was a town full of bigotry and hatred. Reclaiming him will take strength of heart that neither Peter nor Bodi had six years ago. Since Michael left, Bodi has been lost and alone. Peter can try to make Bodi his and take the role Michael should have had, but first he and Bodi have to confront the past. They will need to face Michael, the good and the bad, the beauty and the sadness, and see his memory truly for what it was and not what it could have been. It's a simple act that may destroy them both: sifting through the flaming ruins of heaven is a sure way to annihilate a bleeding mortal heart.

ANGST!Oh, so much angst. Well-written and multi-layered angst, with a heavy dollop of small town stereotypes thrown in for good measure, but mostly it's just ENDLESS SOUL CRUSHING ANGST. If that's your thing, you'll love this book. I enjoyed it, but I'm not inclined to try any more of Ms. Lane's boo...

3.5 Heartbreaking as I knew it would be
Opening Line: “Daisy, California Population 2,726." As much as I love Amy Lane I have to admit this one was a struggle for me to get through. Don’t get me wrong the writing is still fantastic and there are passages that literally take your breath away but the story is so painful, so angry, so frea...

You know how sometimes you just need a good cry? And as fucked up as it sounds, you want that feeling of being gutted, of having your heart ripped out. Well next time you're in one of those moods, read this book. It's beautiful torture. Exquisite pain. You get the idea.It starts out with Peter ...

The writing was good, but I didn't like the "love story". Both MCs didn't really speak to me. It was one of those overly angsty stories, that didn't make much sense too me. Everyone was terribly broken. And all problems were tragedies. What will become a new pet peeve: The "I will fix you" plot. I d...

"...and you made the good parts real and the bad parts livable..." probably the most amazing thing that someone could say to the person they love, because in the end it's the hardest thing to do. I liked this book right from the start it's not a sweet happy story and if you've ever lived in a small ...
