To Whom It May Concern,
It was easy to call us forbidden and harder to call us soul mates. Yet I believed we were both. Forbidden soul mates.
When I arrived in Edgewood, Wisconsin, I didn't plan to find him. I didn't plan to stumble into Joe's bar and have Daniel's music stir up my emotions. I had no clue that his voice would make my hurts forget their own sorrow. I had no idea that my happiness would remember its own bliss.
When I started senior year at my new school, I wasn't prepared to call him Mr. Daniels, but sometimes life happens at the wrong time for all the right reasons.
Our love story wasn't only about the physical connection. It was about family. It was about loss. It was about being alive. It was silly. It was painful. It was mourning. It was laughter. It was ours.
And for those reasons alone, I would never apologize for loving Mr. Daniels.

I don't remember the last time a book made me laugh/cry so much!! LOVED IT!!!
Beautiful, Heartwarming, Unforgetable
Mr. Daniels was my favorite character.
I have listened to many audio books with good narrators. However, the narration on this book was supurb
This has to ne one of the best novels I have read in years. You will miss out on a great love story if you pass this one up
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
A breathtaking NA romance as 22 yr old Daniel and 19 yr old Ashlyn knew what it was like to grieve - and grieve hard.. as the rest of the world laughed and got on with their own lives.. unaware of the turmoil, the sorrow - and the guilt that consumed these broken and very complex people. However, a chance meeting would bring these two lost souls together and like would find like through mutual attraction, through their shared grief, through sizzling chemistry.. and through Shakespeare's meaningful words. But unfortunately Fate stepped in and threw a major spanner into their budding intense relationship and the reality of their impossible situation would create a tsunami that would bring drama, angst, many tears and much heartbreak. And, as the deadly waters receded, the emotional wreckage that was left behind could only be healed by time.. so they sacrificed their todays now for a chance of tomorrows sometime in the years ahead.
This is NOT a happy feel good romance - it's gritty, it deals with death, grief and all that comes with the premature loss of loved ones - either by disease or by the actions of another - but the result is the same.. a gaping whole, a shattered heart and broken dreams. However, it IS a beautiful NA love story that'll touch your soul, break your heart and then piece it back together again to make a story that was compelling, beautiful and unforgettable too. The sex wasn't over done and the tender words shared between these star-crossed lovers sears your soul.. as does the gay step-brother's dilemma of coming out and all the hurtful heartbreaking scenes that followed. Daniel was broken, damaged, gorgeous, thoughtful, caring, sexy and the Lead Singer of Romeo's Quest and Ashlyn was lost, lonely, alone, abandoned and broken too. Together they healed and found the other half of their soul. Dual POV, great narration and a storyline that had a few surprises up its sleeve that I never saw coming.
Worth a credit? I don't usually like NA but I do like Brittainy Cherry and she absolutely floored me with this unique, moving, memorable and very creditworthy listen.
Wow.... this writer reminds me of Nicholas Sparks! Great story but man, my emotions were all over the place!i laughed, I cried, I got angry! Every emotion was experienced in this book, and it takes a brilliant author to pull that off...
A friend recommended this book because she thought it was amazing, couldn't put it down. Maybe because I'm a little older, but this story was so old and predictable. Student and teacher sneaking around to be with each other and of course she has huge breasts that they can't stop talking about. And all the crying the girl does is so ridiculous. Needless to say I will not be recommending to anyone.
What a touching and beautiful book. It will have you in tears and it will make you root for them.
Beautiful written and it never turned cheesy. The romance between the two were beautiful and soooo perfect.
Narration was good.
I loved this story. It had so much to say with so much depth. I really like Ms. Cherry's books. they are different than most of the books I listen to. This book made me laugh and brought me to tears a LOT but it shows how her writing got to my heart. I LOVED the characters and thankful that it turned out the way I had hoped! What a wonderful love story. This book is worth more than a credit..
I start eye-rolling almost immediately. I really wanted to like it, but the story was unable to evoke any emotion even through such tragic events.
hands down, my favorite book possibly of all times! it had just the right amount of corniness , humor , heart-wrenching sadness , and the best love story ending.
absolutely, especially to my friends who enjoyed the crossfire series, 50 Shades and Gabriel's Inferno Series.
Mr. Daniels, of course! How much more perfect could he be?!
Mr. Daniels, but they were all performed very, very well!
The book starts off by capturing your attention with the death of the twin and doesn't let up until the very end. She had me hooked from chapter 1.
I knew from the description that I would like this book, but I didn't foresee me falling in love with Mr. Daniels the way I did. For some reason that teacher/student relationship gets to me every single time. It reminded me quite a bit of Gabriel's Inferno series, but with more tragedy right from the start. As obsessed with Gabriel's Inferno as I still am and it's been years, this book would rank right up there with that series. From drugs, death, star-crossed lovers, father-daughter relationship, step siblings, to a beautiful love story that will provoke a vast array of feelings. This is a book you will want to read and re-read, at least that is how it is for me.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the crossfire series, 50 Shades of Grey, or the Gabriel Inferno series, but in my opinion it far surpassed the 50 Shades Series!
The cover does not do this book justice.
