and unwavering in his love of Harper despite her best attempts to push him away After the things that he had The Chatterbugs Manual just went though the fact that he was able to be the person he was

though so I m putting it out there The pull between these two was so palpable that as a reader I knew that they had no choice but to be together Their ourney was far from typical but it was completely beautiful And the understanding of their respective fathers through their love for one another was amazing Never Goodbye is not a cliffhanger hallelujah I don t think that my heart would have been able to handle not knowing the fate of Harper and Vaun I really have nothing bad to say about this book except that I was sad that it was over I will be anxiously awaiting April and Carter s story I hoping for a little Harper and Vaun uite honestly due out in early 2014VaunMmmI love youHe kisses my head I love you I smile I love you times a thousandHe laughs and I love the echo from his neck to my ear Then he says I love you a billion times I love you infinityI love you infinity plus oneI think I beat you There is nothing higher than infinityHe strokes my arm and sighs I love you first Be prepared to hold a box of tissues next to your bed because seriously I cried like a babyThis book is one of those books where you know what challenges up head these characters will have to face and even when you are dreading the moment when it all comes to a head you can t stop reading it 4 to 45 starsWhat if you found your soul mate at the worst point in your lifeSeventeen year old Harper is in a new town facing a health crisis and still suffering from tragedy in in her past Vaun is plagued by ghosts too feels isolated and adrift He has used random sexual encounters to numb his pain but does not really feel anything They meet and form an immediate connection that defies logic Soon they are immersed in each other lives and harboring strong feelings But even as Harper tries to pull away to protect Vaun from her secret and uncertain future it all is exposed Will their love be enough to help her in the fight for her life or will Vaun face his biggest loss yetI have to say that the insta love in this book was really fast However I will admit that even though insta love usually annoys me I found their relationship sweet and heart felt They were both broken before they met from family issues and traumas but their meeting truly was the beginning of their new lives and new attitude It did really feel like they had a soulful connection And they were so consumed by their feelings and were so good for each other that I kind of ust went with it I love you infinityHarperI love you infinity plus oneVaunI think I beat you There is nothing higher than infinityI loved you firstYou winHarper was sweet loving caring and has an inner strength She had faced so much in her young life and was facing the hardest battle yet But even though she had so much going on in her own life she could still have empathy and concern for Vaun and his struggles And her care and concern for her little brother was admirable I know I should be embarrassed and I should be worried that I could bare such sorrow to a stranger when I keep it closed from the ones who love me most but Vaun doesn t feel like stranger He feels like an old friend One I had once and lost and found again A friend who understands my tears aren t a moment of weakness but of love Vaun and I share a kindred spirit of pain in so many ways different but heart altering all the sameVaun was simply amazing He was funny protective loving and devoted From the minute he saw her she pulled him in And he umped head first into wanting with her even as she tried to pull back and not let him in From the beginning he saw their connection for what it was never fought it or denied it In fact he pushed it And when things were difficult he pushed them both through it and found way to make a difference in her life And she had a positive effect on his too by giving him
