Until we find the one soul who makes the burden of such secrets just that little bit easier to bear.

Lexington "Lexi" Hart is a senior at the University of Alabama. Surrounded by her best friends, her loving family and having fulfilled her life-long dream of making the Crimson Tide cheer squad, everything is going exactly as she always dreamed it would. But beneath her happy exterior, demons lurk, threatening to jeopardize everything Lexi has worked to achieve.

When events in her life become too much to cope with, Lexi finds herself spiraling down into the realm of her biggest fear. Lexi falls hard, victim once again to the only thing that can destroy her and, on the way, finds herself falling straight into the dangerous tattooed arms of a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Austin Carillo, starting Wide Receiver for the Alabama Crimson Tide, must get picked in this year's NFL draft. He needs it. His brothers need it. Most importantly, his mother desperately needs it. Brought up in a world where the poor are forgotten, the sick are left to fend for themselves and no hero miraculously appears to pull you out of hell, Austin had no other choice but to make a living on the wrong side of the law—until football offered Austin the break to get his life back on track.

But when a family tragedy drags him back into the clutches of the gang he believed he had left far behind, Austin finds himself falling. Falling back into criminal ways and falling deep into a suffocating darkness. Until a troubled yet kindred spirit stumbles across his path, where Austin quickly finds he is falling for a young woman—a young woman who might just have the power to save him from his worst enemy: himself.

Can two troubled souls find a lasting peace together? Or will they finally succumb to the demons threatening to destroy them?

Mary's 5 Star Review 

Where to start with this book.....

Its emotional from the very beginning. You meet broken Lexi that hides from her friends trying to turn off the voice in her head and then you meet Austin Carrillo who is doing everything to make it. 

The unlikely pair on the outside world but there secrets they hide behind are what unite them. I love Tillie dual POV we get Lexi broken heart and body while at the same time you want to hug her you want to shake her by her shoulders to get her to understand she is beautiful and normal. 

Then you meet Austin who has everything going for him awesome talent, awesome friends and a chance to make it beyond school. But his past is more now his present then ever when balancing his future while trying to take car of his family without hurting anyone in the process. 

"Buona note, e dormi bene, mia cara. Goodnight and sleep wall my darling. The Words my mama whispered to me every night at bedtime since I was born. The words that took away my fears, blocked out all the badness in the world."- Austin

But both Lexi and Austin past catch up to them and there not much they can do to hold the lies and secrets at bay but comfort each other knowing they can confide in each other. To one another they just seem Lexi or Austin they don't see all the stuff that happens around them. There no mask, no war paint just each other.

" Austin was bringing color into my gray scale life." Lexi

As Lexi the voice is louder by the day and Austin home life is progressing south there not much they can do but live the life's they have. Both try to strive for more with each other but can that be enough.

Tillie made me Cry, laugh and feel deeply for both Lexi and Austin you cant not love it. The way Tillie writes you feel every tear, every breath and every step these two make. As tilie states in the beginning of this book this is a very personal and touching story to here. Tillie gives the disorder as she calls it a voice and gives inside sight of what Lexi feels. We hear Lexi fight the voice until she cant. We see Austin dreams for a better future not only for himself for his brothers for the dream his mother has for him. But you see that dream almost fade as fast as his mother is fading.
