Kindle Crack Book Reviews
When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. 

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen. 
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness. 

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find. 

And in a flash, she was gone. 

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated. 

Caged. 

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her. 
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again. 

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. 
When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

Excerpt: 
By the way, what happened to Todd’s nose?” I asked. 
“I broke it,” Elliott said matter-of-factly.
“What? How? Why?” 
He shrugged before turning to look out the window. “He called you a bad name.” 
“What was it?”
“It doesn’t matter.” 
“Eli,” I started. 
He turned my way and locked his hazel eyes with my browns. “Jazz…” He shook his head. “It wasn’t true.”
I swallowed hard, a big part of me certain Todd’s words held some form of truth. 
Elliott saw it in me—my fear. He kept shaking his head and whispered, “I don’t feel sorry for you. Sometimes you look at me like you think I feel sorry for you, and I want you to know I don’t. I think you’re perfect the way you are.”
I quietly laughed at him repeating the words I’d told him earlier. A few tears rolled down my cheeks. “I’m a little messed up.” 
“I know.” He nodded. “That’s why I like you.”
He went back to staring out the window, and I kept staring at him. 
And there it was. 
So small, so tiny, so real. 
Love. 
It wasn’t love, but it was the beginning of it.
I knew I was young, and I knew it was stupid, but in that moment, I began to fall in love with the quiet boy who quietly cared for me. The boy who was scared and still strong. The boy who stood up for me when he was surrounded by reasons not to do such a thing. I hadn’t known much about love. I hadn’t known how it looked, felt, or tasted. I hadn’t known how it moved, how it flowed, but I knew my heart was tight and currently skipping a few beats. I understood the goose bumps covering my arms. I knew this stuttering boy who was sometimes so scared was someone worth loving. He was worth being the first one I gave my heart to.
I knew Elliott Adams was love.
And I was falling into him so fast.

Review of Behind the Bars
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4- 4.5 Review to follow 🎤🎷
Updated:
Life, music, happiness, and sorrow. Everything went down Behind the Bars. This touching second chance romance pulled at my heartstrings. Behind the Bars struck a chord in my heart. Elliott and Jasmine bonded over music as teenagers in New Orleans. Elliot played the sax; Jasmine was an aspiring singer.

“He played as if he were bleeding out into the streets of New Orleans. He left nothing on the table and gave his music his all. In that moment, I realized I never gave anything my all—not like him, not like that.”

The two meet and discover that they attend the same high school. Skinny and awkward Elliott is the target of school bullies. Jasmine has her own set of emotional baggage and her "momager" from hell who bullies her. The unlikely pair finds some harmony in their lives until one day changed it all.

“We were only sixteen years old, but our hearts felt older whenever we were together. Before I met Elliott, I thought loneliness was a thing I’d always feel. Then he found me with his music and everything changed.”

“For the remainder of my life I’d be trapped in the prison of my guilt. I’d be trapped behind the bars of my mind, unable to break free from the damage that had been done to my heart and soul.”

I can’t tell you anymore without spoiling this book. You need to one-click this one.
