This is Blue and Piper’s story. Be aware going into this that it touches on sensitives issues such as drug abuse, depression and mental illness. This starts off with Piper at twenty-one years old and what you’d term a good girl, hardworking, caring, loving and easily pleased, working as an office administrator for a small fashion design firm, she spends most of her lunch hours tucked away on a bench in a quaint little park not far from work, one such day she’s drawn to the strumming of a guitar….. The guy appears to be in his mid-twenties, with a dog lying down by his side, she's instantly drawn to him, like a magnet that's attached itself to all her senses, he plays with so much depth and emotion that she can't help but get carried away by the soulful sounds he creates. These two and Acorn his dog strike up such a profound relationship, a toxic love that spans decades, theirs is not an easy ride, at times it's a ticking time bomb that could destroy them, a house of cards that will at some point come tumbling down, he's a vagabond that walks where his feet take him, He doesn't stay anywhere very long. He goes from place to place and only stays a few months before he goes on to the next place he wants to see. and she's the girl that's grounded that's never left her hometown. ‘No tomorrow’ attached it’s claws into me earlier than I would’ve thought possible, hitting the first chapter and I was beyond hooked, I didn’t want to put it down, I couldn’t put it down. The author had me sitting in the palm of her hand lapping up the words she was throwing my way, imagining smoke coming off my trusty iPad my bible as I sped through the pages of this book, the feels, the angst, the crazy love I felt for these two characters was insane..I also wasn’t expecting to have my heart ripped to smithereens. This book put me through the wringer, I swooned, I sighed, I raged, I cried, I giggled, but one emotion that stood tall above the rest is the love I had for this book, it crawled so far into my heart it’ll never unlatch itself. This book for me was utter perfection, utterly un-put-down-able, they were utterly perfectly imperfect for each other. I CrAzY LoVed ThIs BoOk!! “Did you know in Norway, there’s a myth that if a man and a woman see a ladybug at the same time, they’ll fall in love.” “No… I didn’t know that.” “We just looked at yours at the same time.” “That doesn’t count.

My head feels fuzzy. And I'm so in love with this incredible story that I can't even think of how to begin reviewing it. I love you like there’s no tomorrow.” I've never read this author before, but when I first saw the blurb for this book a few months ago, I knew this would be my first book by her. It hooked me immediately. Then I started reading it and I was DONE FOR. It sucked me right into its dark depths and didn't let me up until the very last page. This man is a drug and I’m an addict. I’m high on him and us, lost in the twirling world around me, every smell, sight, and touch heightened and vivid and so incredibly disconnected and hazy. The story spans years and spares no emotional detail. Piper and Blue first meet when she's only 21 years old and she spots a beautiful homeless man with a haunting presence playing guitar in the park that she frequents. Their connection is immediate. The two of them couldn't be more opposite, but you know what they say about that. Piper is the good girl to Blue's bad boy vibes, and the attraction between them sparks to life and entwines them in a fiery connection. Piper tries to understand the complexities behind Blue's eyes, but you always get the sense that there's something dark and painful that's brewing beneath the surface with him. He's a recovering addict and a troubled musician. He loves Piper in the only way he knows how. But love isn't enough to keep their tattered peaces from scattering in the wind. But what we have is a real love. It’s dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. This love—our love—is a love that never dies. It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before. Spanning fourteen years, No Tomorrow tells the story of their up and downs. And boy were there a lot of downs. A part of me wanted to hate Blue for his choices, but a bigger part of me just couldn't. This is a troubled man with many demons. I respect the author so much for not glossing over his issues. You get all of it; the good, the bad, and the worse. And while the story is told in predominantly Piper's POV, the few snippets we get inside of Blue's mind are incredibly potent. She’s the glue that held all my jagged cracks together, and I love her endlessly for it. Unfortunately, I’ve always known that eventually I’d break myself all over again and she’d be left with nothing but pieces. I fell in love with these characters. My heart ached right along with them. I rooted for them, I cried with them, and I was a ball of anxiety just thinking about how their story may end. No Tomorrow is a hauntingly beautiful romance full of depth and emotion. It was utterly captivating and sucked you right into the story. It was a book I won't be forgetting any time soon and one that I can't recommend enough. Blue was a rockstar unlike any I've ever read. If you're looking for something different and that'll make you feel, you've definitely found your next read. I fell hard and fast for her. She haunted me; lived in the fabric of my soul and inspired all the emotions and words that had always eluded me. ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest review Find me on:

However, being homeless is not all of Blue’s issues and he will put Piper and a reader through a gauntlet of emotions. You will take breathers, rant to friends, and then jump right back in to see what happens next. Thank you Carian Cole for writing a story I was connected to and moved by!

It was hard at times to read but I knew their love could get them through anything. It was so powerful and all consuming there was no other way. It was also ugly, devastating and painful. I really appreciate the author showing those 2 sides of love. Its not always flowers and sunshine, but that doesn’t make it any less powerful, life changing and beautiful. I don’t want to spoil this story so I won’t go into details, but just know that this is one of the most beautiful, gut-wrenching books I’ve read this year. It consumed me and never let me go. I don’t know why I’ve never read a book by this gifted author before, but it’s something I plan on remedying soon. Her writing is magnificent and so touching. I don’t know what else to say other than read this book. It won’t be an easy journey but I promise you it’ll be worth it.

I have read a lot from this author and every book I have ever opened of hers has touched me in some way, shape or form "No Tomorrow" was for me the pinnacle of all these other reads and though I usually stay the hell away from anything to angsty I am so glad I took a chance on this as I felt that melancholy enchantment so starkly experiencing it down to the depths of my very soul. I honestly think this is one journey that just needs to be experienced in all its messy unapologetic glory. Going in blind here is probably the best thing you can do. Just living this pilgrimage of discovery right alongside Blue and Piper, feeling the intensity of sentiment and pure instinct as everything is amplified in this personal expedition of self-worth. So, This is not a traditional love story it is anything but, what we have here is a stark portrayal of obsession and need. Messy and sometimes selfish the road to happiness here is paved with heartache and tears. Theres no goodies and baddies in this it just is what it is. A bleak blunt spiral into absolute despair aided along in its ever-forward momentum by a lifelong battle with addiction and mental illness. I smiled and cried and also felt the depths of despondency right alongside Blue and piper I was in awe of pipers ability and capacity for caring and forgiveness she was such a strong warrior with the strength and resilience of a woman just in love with her man. I have to say through my own personal experience with mental illness and addiction that this author was so spot on in her portrayal of the downward spiral and also the mindset of someone dealing with such day to day demons. Demons that not only affect the individual but also the whole unit of friends and family especially a romantic partner. That's what I liked about this the most, there was no unrealistic love cures all this was a process that never goes away but can with time, attention and care be lived with and managed. It was such a raw honest narrative that I truly appreciated. And though I felt my heart in my mouth throughout I was also glued to every poignant magical word expressed here so powerfully. Such an arresting expressive dialogue with a wonderful multi-faceted cast. And I absolutely adored that epilogue; If I could give this more stars than five I so would, this is a story that's going to live within my heart for a very long time to come indeed. Please do yourself a favour and read; this one is in a league all of its own making. Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of "No Tomorrow" of which I have reviewed voluntary. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. Reviewed By Beckie Bookworm. https://www.facebook.com/beckiebookworm/ www.beckiebookworm.com

It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before.” Warning : this book touches on some sensitive subjects so read with caution like drug abuse and mental illness. This is the third time that I try to write this review… Why is it the books that we love the most that are the most difficult to review???   Ok here I go … Carian Cole took me way out of my comfort zone here! I didn’t know it when I requested the ARC that one of the main topics would be about addiction to drugs. I avoid books with addicts like the plague, running the other way but as I love Carian’s books I read it anyway and …. have been on a roller coaster yet amazed. I never would have believed it if someone told me that one day I would read and love a book with such topic!   Why did I love it? Because Carian’s penmanship was uncompromising. She wrote “real and true”. Carian showed the complexity and bleak reality of loving and caring for someone with “problems” (sorry I stay vague here). She did not paint an unrealistic and rosy picture. She did not promise that love saves everyone in the blink of an eye and being addict you can be saved from all your personal demons only through pure love. No. But she also did not try to darken the story either and make it some mockery of being an addict. She did not paint her character as a heinous villain who deserves to suffer and hurt. No, her character is addicted yet is a fantastic human being. Someone caring, kind yet suffering from many demons. Her character did not ask for it.   This is Piper and Blue often toxic yet beautiful and real love story. Their attraction has been instantaneous and Blue will turn Piper’s world upside down. She won’t recognize the girl she’s become. She won’t believe what she did under that bridge. “I’m going to make you dirty, too. And it’s never going to wash off. “ Some will be horrified by what happened there. Most who know Carian will understand. Because her love stories are never easy and simple. Because she writes about human nature at its best and at its lowest. Because we all have flaws and real life is not like the fairy tales with rainbow and unicorns every day.   Some will be irritated by Piper. They will see her as a kind of “doormat” like her father did at some time. They won’t understand why she puts up with all this. Why is she still in love with Blue after all that he’s done to her? After all the broken promises. They will want to tell her to leave him and begin again with someone stable, uncomplicated. And that’s true that it takes a special person to love, care and stay with people “like” Blue.   When Pipper meets Blue she is wary of him. Yet soon enough with him she will feel beautiful, cherished and not the clumsy tiny woman everyone has always seen in her.   Blue has a presence. A magnetism that will enthrall Pipper. For him she’ll go through hell. Yet love has no expiration date and sometimes you can’t stop loving someone even if you know he will break your heart again and again.   As for Blue he is a very complex and restless character. Carian writes some of the most beautiful flawed male characters that I’ve read about. Vandal and Tyler are two of these broken characters. Yet Blue is by far the most complex, tortured yet so so lovable. Of course I wanted to let him go as he hurt Piper so many times yet I couldn’t help understand Piper. I have what is commonly called “the savior complex” and would have been unable to turn my back on Blue. Exactly like Piper who found her soul mate and wanted to love and help him so bad! “As much as I love the sound of the rain, the moody grey clouds and the rainbows, the storms trap me. I can’t stand the thunder and lightning and all the wind. That’s when I need you the most. You’re like my own little sunbeam.” A weak smile touches his lips. “You chase the storm away.”     This book is all about their relationship throughout the span of more than 10 years. Their love is true but complicated, violent, heartbreaking.   You will smile thanks to Acorn the dog waving at people leaving change for Blue when he plays the guitar. You will always be on edge. Waiting for the shoe to drop. For Blue to mess it up. You will swoon and you will cry. You will rage because they didn’t deserve this. You will admire Piper because she could set a limit and protect herself when it was vital yet still love Blue. And believe me that’s not easy feat! You will FEEL. One thing that’s for sure: you won’t feel indifferent.   What are your triggers/pet peeve in books?   Thanks for reading!

That being said, I know that I sometimes ignore those warnings and appreciate the spoilers when I am worried about a particular book -- so I will provide my usual spoiler tags, but I'll also add another one for this point on in my review because they are BIG SPOILERS and I don't think you should read on unless you are fully okay with the fact that you might not experience this book fully after you've read them! (view spoiler)[I enjoyed this book and it sucked me in from the start! That blurb set us up for a deliciously disastrous romance. I did struggle with some things though. The h. I think I struggled with the h in this book mainly because I had HUGE warning signs going off in my brain almost from the very beginning of the book about what was going on. It might be because I was a psych major in college, but it definitely made me want to shake her and scream "educate yourself, woman!" I also thought the pacing felt a little off at times. We get huge time jumps because this spans over a long period of time, but it also felt slow at other times where I never skimmed but I was tempted to. The ending was also lackluster in the sense that they had so many struggles to get through and then it seemed to be resolved and instantly thrown in to the epilogue to where it didn't feel fully resolved to me (hope that makes sense). Don't get me wrong -- the epilogue was cute, but it just didn't feel like enough for me. Even with those issues, I thought it was an enjoyable read that got the feels going. Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Piper and Blue's story. Piper is a quirky and misunderstood 21 year old with a boring life when she meets the homeless Blue in the park one day after admiring him from afar for a while. Blue turns Piper's boring life upside down when they start to spend more time together and fall in love. Blue is a hard man to love and he creates many obstacles for Piper to get through in order to find their HEA. There is a lot of time spent apart, some majorly angsty events, some sweet moments, and some sexy times...and they get a HEA ending. POV: This alternated between Piper (90+%) and Blue's POV. Overall Pace of Story: Not the best. I never skimmed, but for some reason it did feel a little slow at times. This has some major time jumps throughout the book. Instalove: Kind of, but not in the annoying way that usually bothers me 😜 H rating: 4 stars. Blue. I liked him. He was a mess, but he was oh so incredibly sweet and loving too -- and so much so that I couldn't help but like him. h rating: 3 stars. Piper. I felt a little torn about her character. I appreciated her sweet and loyal ways, but I also really was annoyed with how she was blind to what was going on! Sadness level: Moderate. I definitely shed some tears, but I never needed any tissues. Push/Pull: Yes (view spoiler)[ The H pushes away a lot, and the h does push away as well at one point. They both pursue the relationship at times, but I'd say the h is the main pursuer. (hide spoiler)] Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story. Descriptive sex: Yes OW/OM drama: Yes (view spoiler)[ The h's ex is now a friend (they never were intimate when together) that she moves in with, and this causes some jealousy for the H. The friend does kiss her and try to move out of the friend-zone during one of her separations from the H, and she is semi-interested at the time. (hide spoiler)] Sex scene with OW or OM: No Cheating: No Separation: Yes (view spoiler)[They are separated a lot in this book and some for long periods of time. They both were celibate during all of their separations except the H had drunken sex with OW during one separation where the h had fully cut ties and he thought they were over (*note: I have been told that the author said that the H said this out of anger but didn't actually sleep with OW. I thought it wasn't very clear and I took it as him having done it, but I guess we all interpret things differently 🤷🏻‍♀️*) (hide spoiler)] Possible Triggers: Yes (view spoiler)[Homelessness (on page), alcohol/drug addiction (on page), mental illness (on page), the h was a virgin, unexpected pregnancy (on page), miscarriage (on page), and suicide attempt (on page). (hide spoiler)] Closure: This had kind of an abrupt ending, but a cute epilogue. I would still call it a HEA ending even though I wanted more time between the conflict being resolved and the epilogue. Safety: This one is probably Safe with exception for most safety gang readers (view spoiler)[ - Does Not have cheating - Does Not have a descriptive sex scene with OW/OM - Does have both the h and H pushing away - Does have many separations between the h and H - Does Not have abuse - Does have a HEA ending (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]

I didn't find their love connection all that epic. It was mostly toxic, wrong, unrealistic and potentially dangerous. I feel like this one of those books that try to make it romantic to always act like a punching bag to someone who treats you like crap and is untrustworthy, just because well.. They love each other more than anything. So she should just stand there and take the abuse. Be left behind, be apart for years and never moving on or meeting another guy and trying to be happy. Maybe I'm getting too old or I just experienced too much relationship crap to like books like these. They stopped being romantic to me and are just.. bad examples. Mental/emotional/physical abuse shouldn't be romantized. It's not romantic to constantly allow yourself to be hurt, because you just love him and 'oh well he is who he is'. I don't think it's romantic to have someone string you along and demand that you'll always keep loving them and leaving a place for them, when they keep leaving you behind. There is also some serious addiction/mental health stuff, so if you want to avoid that, this is not the book for you. This book also contains the biggest romance book cliche, one that I'm not a huge fan of. And a teeny bit of (view spoiler)[OW, while she remains celibate for over 9 years aside from the occasional time they are together for a little bit (hide spoiler)] . I don't think the author is bad. The writing is pretty good. I think it's mostly an it's not you, it's me book. So give it a go yourself and tell me what you thought 😊. Judging by all the 5 star reviews, I'm definitely in the minority.

It was almost too easy to empathize with these characters and their story was not only hot and intense, it was dramatic, emotional and life-affirming. I wasn't sure how to encapsulate this book without giving anything away and thought short and simple would do the trick. I'm literally holding myself back from revealing too much because this story was indeed fantastic. It tackles homelessness, judgmental attitudes and how they effect others, addiction, music, friendship, love and destiny. I couldn't help but agree that Piper and Blue seemed to be meant for each other and the hardships they faced to get to their happy ending were worth it. If you love a story that details a certain and unfortunate reality, you'll love this one! ☆.。.:* ARC provided for an honest review .。.:*☆ Release: 09.13.2018 | Genre: Contemporary Romance | Primarily heroine - 1st person | Heat: 3.5 | Standalone Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr

    I finished NO TOMORROW last night, and I’m still not over it. In fact, I don’t think I will ever be over it. I decided I needed to take some time to process what I had read and try to find the right words to do the story, and Carian, justice, but in all honesty, I’m not entirely sure that anything I say could adequately convey how special this book is. NO TOMORROW is a beautiful, heart-breaking, epic love story, that at times is brutally honest about issues such as drug abuse and mental health; I finished NO TOMORROW last night, and I’m still not over it. In fact, I don’t think I will ever be over it. I decided I needed to take some time to process what I had read and try to find the right words to do the story, and Carian, justice, but in all honesty, I’m not entirely sure that anything I say could adequately convey how special this book is. NO TOMORROW is a beautiful, heart-breaking, epic love story, that at times is brutally honest about issues such as drug abuse and mental health; subject matters that are very close to my heart and that are SO relevant and often shied away from. It was emotionally draining in the sense that it completely consumed me; I was wrecked, and at certain points I had to stop because the tears were clouding my vision and I could no longer see the words on my kindle. Its not hard to see that Carian poured her heart and soul into this, and I really am so in awe of her right now. Blue and Pipers story spans years. I fell in love with them both immediately, but I knew it wasn’t going to be an easy ride. If you are looking for a light-hearted romance, this isn’t it. At 65 chapters long, it’s no easy read, but let me tell you something, it is worth every single moment. I am giving nothing away about the story because I believe you just need to dive right in and experience it all for yourself. If you are new to Carian Cole, then here begins your journey. As someone who has read all of her books, multiple times, I can tell you that this is, without a doubt, her best work yet. “ Hugging my comforter tighter to me, I lean my head into the phone and quietly sob. Life and love can be so cruel and beautiful and utterly confusing. This isn’t the love I dreamed of as a little girl. This isn’t the whirlwind romance I swooned over in books. There’s no sparkly ring, no wedding bells, no husband holding our baby in the delivery room. But what we have is a real love. It’s dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. This love—our love—is a love that never dies. It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before.“ This passage just sums up Blue and Pipers relationship perfectly. This isn’t a conventional love story; it was raw, it was gut-wrenching, and in parts it was downright devastating, but it was perfection, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. NO TOMORROW is going to be one of those books that’s stays with me forever, and I know that everytime I reread it, I will fall in love as if it was the first time.

I turn to look at him with tears brimming in my eyes because his words are masked with so much sadness and regrets, my heart hurts. "Love doesn't have rules, Blue. The way you love me is perfect. And I love you. That's all that matters." Ugh, che libro impegnativo. Bello, emozionante, ma davvero impegnativo. Siamo nel 1998, è qui che parte la storia di Contemporary Romance Standalone 3.70 stars "I don't know how to love you, Piper," he says roughly. "But I know I love you a little more everyday." I turn to look at him with tears brimming in my eyes because his words are masked with so much sadness and regrets, my heart hurts. "Love doesn't have rules, Blue. The way you love me is perfect. And I love you. That's all that matters." Ugh, che libro impegnativo. Bello, emozionante, ma davvero impegnativo. Siamo nel 1998, è qui che parte la storia di Piper e Blue. Si conoscono al parco, dove lei trascorre sempre la sua pausa pranzo dal lavoro e dove invece lui vive. Blue è un senza tetto, suona sempre la chitarra per qualche spicciolo e uno sguardo tira l'altro, i due diventano inseparabili. Piper diventa completamente pazza di quest'uomo dai capelli lunghi, dagli occhi azzurro cielo e del suo cagnolino Acorn. Si innamorano praticamente subito e proprio in quel parco, sotto ad un piccolo ponte, consumano la loro prima e intensa volta. Una scena davvero da brividi che ho riletto più volte, scritta davvero magnificamente, mi ha trasmesso un sacco di brividi ed emozioni. La loro storia però, in questo romanzo di quasi 500 pagine, è lunga all'incirca 20 anni. Piper e Blue hanno una relazione che in molti considerano tossica, perchè Blue non è una persona normale. Solo il fatto che è lui, inizialmente, a voler essere un senza tetto e a non voler una casa o un lavoro, fa storcere il naso anche a Piper, ma essendo completamente innamorata di lui mette tutto in secondo piano. Il piano di Blue, il piano che ha per la sua vita, è quello di continuare a camminare. Infatti non si ferma mai in una città per tanto tempo, vuole continuare a camminare e ad esplorare. Ed è proprio così che inizia il calvario, perchè si ritroveranno separati per diversi anni, mentre, nel frattempo, lei rimane incinta e da alla luce una bambina, Lyric. Il fatto di buttarci dentro una gravidanza è stata una cosa per me inaspettata, me l'aspettavo di più verso la fine, ma devo dire che non mi ha dato fastidio più di tanto (nonostante io detesti i bambini). Lyric è una bambina molto intelligente e per niente rompi balle. Piper cerca in tutti i modi di ricontattare Blue e quando scopre che è diventato una rockstar famosa, trova i biglietti per un concerto e si fionda nel backstage per riuscire a parlarci. Non voglio dire di più, perchè succedono davvero tantissime cose. Il romanzo tratta anche di malattie mentali, in modo abbastanza diretto e pesante. Piper dovrà sopportare tante cose, ma l'amore che la lega a Blue è più forte di qualsiasi cosa ci sia al mondo. Non importa se durante questi ultimi 20 anni sono stati quasi sempre separati, senza nemmeno parlarsi, lei non l'ha mai dimenticato a lui non ha mai dimenticato lei. Si amano con tutta l'anima, e questo amore lo senti uscire dalle pagine ed entrarti nel cervello. La mia votazione dipende principalmente dal fatto che Carian Cole ha rimandato tantissime volte la data di uscita, annunciandola almeno due/tre volte per poi lasciarci sempre con un pugno di mosche. Sono cose che ultimamente accadono sempre e con maggiore frequenza, e sono cose che io, come lettrice, non apprezzo per niente. Posso capire di rimandare per una settimana, perchè ci sono alcune cose da finire, ma rimandare di mesi e mesi e non far sapere niente ai tuoi lettori credo sia una mancanza di rispetto. Quindi solo per questo, mi ero ripromessa di abbassare la votazione. Non me la sentivo nemmeno di dare 4 stelle tonde (purtroppo Goodreads è indietro e non abbiamo le mezze stelle), perchè il libro era molto lungo e molte parti erano come vuote e lente, credo che si potesse tagliare tanto, senza dare un volume così alto al libro. Indubbiamente è un libro che ti da tanto, è stata una storia si pesante, ma che ha saputo farmi sorridere e anche farmi emozionare, con qualche lacrimuccia (Acorn, il cagnolino, vi farà innamorare seduta stante). Assolutamente consigliato! :)

    Fuck the secret baby trope. And ESPECIALLY fuck the celibate heroine/manwhore hero trope. Another 2018 disappointment to the growing larger-by-the-day pile.

Dislikes: 💔There are reasons some people are homeless. 💔Rough sex. 💔Crazy birds. 💔Time span. 💔Time apart. Even though there were things I didn't care for, I really enjoyed Blue and Piper's journey and ultimately the love they have for each other. It's a strong case for standing by the one you love.

    No Tomorrow by Carian Cole 5 stars!!!! “You were never a part of my delusions. You were my only anchor.” I have not pulled an all-nighter for a very, very long time and bearing in mind my recent reading funk I didn’t think it was possible, but Carian Cole did it. This was a one-sitting read until nearly 4am, I was captivated from first to last word and didn’t want to stop until I had finished this heart-breaking, yet heart-warming love story. I have never read this author before, and it was the No Tomorrow by Carian Cole 5 stars!!!! “You were never a part of my delusions. You were my only anchor.” I have not pulled an all-nighter for a very, very long time and bearing in mind my recent reading funk I didn’t think it was possible, but Carian Cole did it. This was a one-sitting read until nearly 4am, I was captivated from first to last word and didn’t want to stop until I had finished this heart-breaking, yet heart-warming love story. I have never read this author before, and it was the synopsis that pulled me in, and I’m so glad it did because I will definitely be going to this authors back list and downloading more. “If memories had a flavor, ours would be salt and blood.” This is a book that follows Piper and Blue for over a decade, through the good times and the bad. A love born in the most incredulous circumstances and yet the heart wants who the heart wants, it doesn’t matter where you come from, where you are in your life, or what your future holds, if your heart beats for another, you can’t stop it. “You falling in love with me will destroy us both.” Piper was a beautiful character, both inside and out and it was her honesty, integrity and her innate ability to see the soul that drew her to Blue. Piper saw past Blue’s exterior and zeroed in on the heart and soul, she saw the man behind the mask and loved what she saw. Blue was a stunning homeless man, who captivated her heart and attention with his music. Piper didn’t care about his means or lack of, she saw something in Blue, that Blue didn’t even see in himself. Piper never tried to change him, she supported him, she loved him, and it was unwavering. “I love you like there’s no tomorrow. Don’t ever forget that,” Blue was your typical troubled bad boy, but it ran deep, it ran through his veins. Misunderstood, complex, deep, dark, troubled and was haunted by his ghosts and demons. Insanely talented and yet it’s hidden under this black cloud that follows him wherever he goes. Carian Cole is brutally honest with regards to Blue, and it is this raw honesty that really ingratiates this character into your heart and soul. I wanted to jump into this book and give him the biggest hug. Even when Blue’s life runs right, he finds the wrong, for someone so handsome and talented, his self-belief was zero. “You’re the only one that’s ever looked past the dirt to see the flowers, Ladybug. That’s why I can’t let you go.” This book was incredibly emotional and angsty, my heart was in my mouth countless times, and the tears were plentiful. My heart was inextricably linked with these characters, and when they hurt, I did too. Carian Cole eeked out every possible emotion, wrung my heart out and squeezed out every single drop of blood she could. This book was totally captivating, unputdownable and one of my favourite reads of the year. I’ve read many a rock star book, and this is like no other, it was fresh, unique, as un-cliche as they come and that made this book stand out from the rest. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. “I fell hard and fast for her. She haunted me; lived in the fabric of my soul and inspired all the emotions and words that had always eluded me.” www.theromancecover.com

    5+ stars! Amazing, heartbreaking story with pure, raw and unconditonal love. Story spans for more than 14 years, which always has special appeal to me; it deepens pain and heartbreak and proves there is no escape from true love.

    I'm a huge Carian Cole fan and I love her style of writing and the way she developes her characters. She really makes you fall in love with her heroes and heroines. I was so excited to read a new book from her. This book is a departure from those that fans of Carian Cole have come to love. This novel involves heavy subjects and Piper's and Blue's love story evolves over more then a decade in its making. With Blue in and out of her life over that span.

This novel involves heavy subjects and Piper's and Blue's love story evolves over more then a decade in its making. With Blue in and out of her life over that span. I loved their beginning and I really could feel their chemistry and love. When he disappears and comes back several times I understand why he did but I did struggle with Piper's willingness to still be with him she came off as a doormat in my opinion. I know I'm in the minority but I didn't fall in love with Blue. There were times I wanted to throat punch him and others I felt he needed a hug. I loved the chapters from his POV I wish there had been more of them they were beautifully written. I think the book needed that to stay cohesive and for readers to love his character! I normally read a book quite quickly but I struggled with it I think mostly because of the heaviness of Blue and Piper's story and because honestly I really didn't like either of these characters very much. I also struggled with the length of the book and I at times was confused in the timeline in the story. This love story is messy and gritty and full of angst. It will have you cheering for and then yelling at Piper and Blue. At times you may want to throw your Kindle across the room I know I certainly did! No Tomorrow will take you through a gambit of emotions and at times you will wonder how their love will endure and what you would endure for the love of your life. Personally I don't think I would have held out for Blue to come around. I'm giving it 3 stars because it's not a book I would re-read nor one where I loved either of these characters. You lost me as a fan Carian. When you asked me in a private message why wasn't I honest in regards to a comment I made on another person's review and then blocked me from FB messenger before I could respond. You said on your discussion group every one is entitled to an opinion I guess we are if it's in accordance to you because I witnessed hand slapping by your admin for even saying I and another person didn't connect. You apparently only want fawning over your books well I for one won't do it.

Every break almost physically hurt – I was reading while walking- in my lunchbreak (I am even now significantly thinking about my lunchbreak because of this book). I read in the night leaving me only 4 hours of sleep – just the bare minimum and I was cursing myself for not starting to read that book on a Friday night. I would have been tempted to cancel my date the upcoming Friday – I guess this will teach me to be more careful – but honestly, I would have never expected that. - (TALKING WITH YOUR BOOK – NOMATTER WHERE YOU ARE AND WHO IS WATCHING YOU) ✔- I would have never guessed the how this book would make me act. I started rambling while reading with people around me- lucky they knew me and the way I get when reading. - (CRYING AND/OR LAUGHING - -OUT LOUD- NOMATTER WHERE YOU ARE) ✔ - yeah there is that …. I was sitting in my lunchbreak with colleagues around me and my eyes started to well up …. There is not much laughing in this book – no mam – but my throat closed and I felt like choking on more than one occasion – God this hurt ….I even have to blink several times now while writing this - (THE INTENSE FEELING OF WANTING TO PUNCH OR HUG A VIRTUAL CHARACTER IN REAL LIFE) ✔ - OH yes I wanted to punch someone here specifically the universe …. And If I could meet these characters I would hug them to death and tell them I am so sorry. I am not even sure why I am sorry I simply feel like that - (REMEMBERING THE PLOT/ THE AUTHOR / THINGS AND/OR CONVERTING CONTENT TO YOUR REAL LIFE) ✔- you can be sure – absolutely sure that this book will not leave me for the unforeseen future - My Essence ? Have you ever read a book and felt scared? Its that moment right in the middle of the book when it can go in any or no direction with the best or worst outcome and you feel like it would be better to not know what is going to happen rather than knowing the outcome is bad? Well this book is one of those books. So far every book I read from this author and there were several has been a deeply emotional 5 star ride and I think by now it is safe to say she is a def. a 1-click-read once you liked one of her books. I am pretty sure if you liked Storm, Talon , Tied or any of her other books you will love this one. It will hurt – oh yes it will – but her writing is beautiful it is like a train wreck – like the movie Titanic – you know that ship is sinking but you still cannot bring yourself to change the channel … THAT kind of hurt. Dear Author thank you for sharing these wonderful characters with us – please continue to choose plots like this and never change how you write. Even if this book came so much later then expected it was worth the wait. ═══ PLEASE SUBSCRIBE / LIKE / FOLLOW US ════ Blog : https://www.jerisbookattic.com FB Page : https://www.facebook.com/JerisBookAttic Twitter : https://twitter.com/JeriTRyan Goodreads : https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2...

I thought she was a sucker and she was basically stupid for putting up with the bullshit after so much heartbreak and letdowns. This was even knowing in my mind something deeper was going on and I had my predictions of course. I can tell you this. By the end of the book, I was pretty much amazed by Piper's patience and dedication to her one true love. Not many people would have put up with what she did. I have to thank the author for having those few chapters towards the end in Blue/Evan's POV. That shed some light on some things and definitely changed my feelings about his actions and behavior. This is a broken man......filled with demons.....and Piper was, in my opinion, his angel and shining light. We should all be so lucky to have someone like her....someone who had the strength to remain supportive and hopeful. This book takes you through years of their lives and turmoil. There is so much that happens. I highly recommend reading it and go into it blind as I did. This book was pretty emotional for me when I finally realized what was going on. It hit pretty close to home. (view spoiler)[My brother had mental illness and the demons and voices overtook him at times......he passed away last year from a rare form of leukemia. But he was loved. He was so intelligent, an amazing artist, and played the guitar like a rock star....long hair and all. (hide spoiler)] So, you see, I'm feeling a pretty deep connection to Evan right now. Thank you to the author for bringing something into the public eye that is usually swept under the rug and never talked about.

    DNF I know A LOT of people are loving this book.. but sadly it’s not for me. I really tried push through it but I had zero connection with the heroine. I couldn’t wrap my head around her decisions. This book made me feel... I don’t know... but I didn’t like it. On a plus side, the writing was good. It’s the story that didn’t sit well with me.

Our hero, Blue is a non traditional musician who is homeless and lives and plays on the street for money. Piper is a much younger, socially awkward heroine who takes an interest in Blue the first time she sees him playing his guitar in the park. The attraction was not quite insta love but the relationship progresses rather quickly on a sexual and emotional level. Some people may have a problem with Piper's naivete, carefree attitude and her complete lack of concern for her own safety especially being in compromising positions with a complete stranger. However, I loved her for not judging him because of his circumstances and for just focusing on the man that she felt a connection with. Their love was passionate and at times wild and out of control! There was a lot of sex in this book and honestly I thought too much. It just started to feel repetitive. I won't give spoilers but this couple is separated by time and distance and eventually get a second chance at love. So much angst, so much frustration and so much pain! I did feel it all and typically I love these type of stories but in this case, I honestly just felt this book did not have to be this long. There was definitely a pattern that the author was trying to establish with the relationship dynamics of this couple and it sort of became monotonous at some points and I found myself bored. The last thing I will say is that I found this book very well written and there was so much depth and complexity to these charcaters and the difficult topics adressed in this book were handled very well by the author. Having said all that, this book is a debbie downer. Maybe it was just the mood I was in but it was just too much sadness and depression. Not like someone died kind of sad, just that this couple never really got to be happy till like right at the end and I felt kind of "robbed" after reading such a long book. If you're looking for a super emotional, angsty book then this book may be for you and you may appreciate it more than I did. 3 Stars Contemporary Romance Heat Level: Moderate to Hot POV: Mostly heroine HEA Follow me for your next COMFORT READ!!

I swooned, I bled, I raged, I got frustrated (hence almost tossing the Kindle into the freezer), I got all teary and sniffly, I laughed and I questioned their actions and reactions, but in the end I rooted for them. I wanted them to get their HEA even when I couldn’t understand it all because they had that connection between them. That elusive and indescribable thing that had them so embedded in each souls that nothing, and no one, could break. But what made it work for me was that they both evolved. They both grew into the people they were always meant to be without losing who they were at their very cores and though it was a difficult process it was a very satisfying one in the end. No Tomorrow is an experience. It is a journey. And it is a romance that may not appeal to everyone. There are issues that are raised and situations that the characters find themselves in that may be difficult for some the deal with and accept, but each of them are ones that are necessary to the characters evolution. To say that this book was well worth the wait is an understatement, but it is the simplest way to put it. You can see just how much blood, sweat and tears the author put into this baby and it was all well worth it because you aren’t just getting a romance. You are getting an epic romance that will stick with you long after you’ve read the very last words. ~ Copy provided by L. Woods PR & voluntarily reviewed ~

    I loved Acorn. Seriously... come on now... the dog? Sigh. I feel like the odd girl out here, I know this book is getting massive love from all of the internet right now, so it is definitely a "me, not it" thing. I was roped in by my girls that were a doing a buddy read and they dangled this book in front of me like a glittery carrot, using magical words like rock star and angst... I mean, how could I possibly refuse? I mean... exactly! Anywho... I was laid up today with a bum back and this book I loved Acorn. Seriously... come on now... the dog? Sigh.

I had difficulty connecting with the female MC and there was a bit of lull and it was drawn out in the middle with repetition; but it did pick up toward the end and the overall message was important and I feel well written. 3 stars.

    Bravo Carian Cole! Epic love like rarely written before. I am so proud of how the subject of addiction and mental illness were tackled here. Her approach was brilliant and shameless and it took my breath away. No alpha BS here!! Just a really brave story that ended without the typical fanfare of HEA. it was what it needed to be, with a peppering of what may come with their son. The book was a bit too long and the heroine was exceptional but at time overly naive in my opinion. (view spoiler)[How qu Bravo Carian Cole! Epic love like rarely written before.

And not being pissed when it was called for. (hide spoiler)] Besides that, I loved this story. Bravo! Tour de Force!
