Number-One New Release in Romance
The number-one New York Times best-selling author of Verity and It Ends With Us delivers another breathtaking novel with a magnetic suspense that will keep you glued to your device.
"This book deserves a whole galaxy of stars, but alas, five is all I can give." (Shades of Rebecca)
Life and a dismal last name are the only two things Beyah's parents ever gave her. After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself. With only two short months separating her from the future she's built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim.
Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah's plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbor Samson throws a wrench in that plan.
Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface.
She comes from a life of poverty and neglect; he comes from a family of wealth and privilege. But one thing they do have in common is that they're both drawn to sad things. Which means they're drawn to each other.
Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn't realize is that a rip current is coming, and it's about to drag her heart out to sea.

*vague spoilers? Maybe?*
However the end was better then expected, I definitely cried; I did fall in love with Beyah and Samson. It was slower for most of the book, a “slow burn” type slow; and the sweet yet mysterious almost got too old for me, but then the HIT and it all came together!
I wish I would have started with this one, and not read Verity; Heart Bones doesn’t get near enough hype. I will be addressing this to my book club fb group.

✔️New Adult Romance
✔️Secrets And Lies
✔️First person, singular POV
Beyah has lived her whole life caring for herself. Never truly knowing happiness. Just knowing the struggle. When a death changes her plans and puts her at her absent fathers beach home, she hopes the summer will slip by. Samson throws her plans right out the window. Complete opposites drawn to each other through sadness, turns into a summer fling that will likely only hurt in the end.
This author never seizes to amaze me. This book gripped me from the start. That first chapter. My heart was heavy but ready for more. There’s so much sadness in this story, for so many reasons. But you also experience some truly heartfelt moments. It’s tragic, yet compelling.
Beyah and Samson were two lost souls who truly understood each other. Perhaps misunderstood at first. Yet, both felt wise beyond their years. Beyah with thick skin, though a vulnerability underneath. And Samson with a story behind his quiet eyes. This story took its time, you felt you really got to know them. Until the lies and secrets all come spilling out. And then the emotion truly pours in. My heart couldn’t take it. And you just couldn’t help but to route for them both anyways. So many great cocharacters who just added perfectly to the storyline. I don’t want to say too much more about this story, just that I highly recommend checking this one out.

I can't believe this is the first book that I've read by this author, jezz I think I must have been living on the moon. This book is absolutely freaking fantastic and I couldn't put it down at all and it deserves 10 thousand stars. I was hooked right from the first chapter and the title is just perfection too.
This is Beyah and Samson's story. Two people that have had such a crappy upbringing and a really tough start in life are completely drawn to each other and my heart bone totally breaks in half for both of them.
They have both always done what they could to survive and when Beyah goes through another traumatic time she goes to stay with her father for the summer and this is when they both meet for the first time.
This book will really have your emotions all over the place and you will really feel every single word on the page. The love that these two have is so pure, so real and so raw and is powerful enough to carry them both through. I loved the characters and the way that this author has written them, the reader can really connect with them and the story line flows throughout so great that I couldn't get enough of it. This book is one of the most raw and beautifully written stories that I have ever read. I really enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait to read more from this author in the future and I will definitely recommend this book to everyone.
This story follows our two main characters who have seemingly very different backgrounds. As the story follows their summer break more of their similarities are revealed.
As always I found myself enjoying Colleen’s writing and characters. I found Beyah’s story heartbreaking and found myself struggling to trust Samson and his intentions in the beginning. A lot of his story is revealed later in the story and I feel like I rushed through from that point until the end.
Throughout Beyah’s difficult upbringing and struggle with emotional connection is slowly impacted upon as she learns how it feels to have a friendship group and be a part of her family. Almost always I find myself in tears while reading one of Colleen’s books and this was no different.
Immediately after finishing this I had such an urge to re-read Ugly Love. If you’re a fan of Colleen’s It Ends With Us you’ll enjoy this latest book.
When she arrives in Texas she discovers that her father married the previous year and now has a stepdaughter. Something he did actually tell her but she has been so disinterested in building a relationship with him that she actually totally forgot these facts.
She spends the summer hanging out with her new stepsister, Sara, Sara’s boyfriend, Marco, and Marco’s friend, Samson. Samson, who just so happens to live next door. Samson, whom she just can’t seem to stop embarrassing herself in front of. Samson, who seems to stare into her soul and is incredibly secretive about himself and his past.
After a few weeks they decide they can’t fight their attraction any longer but agree to “keep it in the shallow end”. They’re going their separate ways in August and neither of them wants to leave with a broken heart. But you know what they say about best laid plans…
Gaaahhh I think Colleen Hoover might be an evil mastermind! Reels you in, makes you think you’ve probably figured it out, then makes you doubt yourself, and then leave you wanting more! Don’t get me wrong, I think the book actually ended in the perfect place, but I still want more!
Loved loved loved Beyah and Samson. So seemingly different, and yet so inherently alike. Much like Beyah, finding out all of Samson’s truths just made me love him even more.
I loved all the secondary characters, too! They’re all good people at their core and just want the best for those they love.
And, in case I haven’t made it clear enough, I love Samson. I just love him. So you should read this book for him, if nothing else. He will both break, and mend your heart bones.
