“You know what they say about air and water when it comes to fire, don’t you?” she asks.
Now, I’m curious. She hasn’t spoken for the last ten minutes of the drive. “What?”
“Too much air blows out the fire. Too much water destroys it.”
I nod trying to determine what she’s really comparing us to. “The idea would be to keep the flame going, right. For years?” She nods. “Like a relationship. Like a marriage.” She cringes at the word marriage. Noted. “So you need the air—to stay constant—to fan the flames of the fire, and you know, grasshopper,” I smile at her and catch sight of the corners of her mouth turning slightly upward in response to the endearment, “a hot enough fire will burn water, so you have to be careful with the water too.”
“That I do know,” she says softly. “So that’s the truth about air and water.” She sighs deep.
“It’s hard to maintain the balance to keep the fire going. You have to fan the flames without putting it out with too much water. But too little water will burn the fire right up. Too much fire. Too much destruction. We’re out of control.”
“You’re talking in circles,” I say.
“No. That’s us,” she says with certainty.”
Tally and Lincoln found there happily ever after in the ending of book 1, and I jumped for joy because finally they agreed to stop fighting the love they both need and share.
However, in book 2 takes to limits of unmistakable anger for Lincoln. Baseball. That’s all that matters right?! Not Tally, and her needs. Just Baseball.
But what baseball left him was let’s see what’s the right words? A Line DRIVE?! … you can say that times 100!. There was some points in the story, where I wanted to feel sorry for him and smack Tally and tell her seriously .. stop with the poor me, because you can’t really blame him, but then you have to think about what would you do if you were no longer a memory?! …
The ending was epic! LOVE IT!
What I loved about this book is that even thou you had the angst, and sadness and the mystery- you still go the point of falling love over again. You can still sit there and sigh and wonder wow… what a great story. I can say that this book will stay with me for a while and may be one of those ones that I re-read a few times.
“Beautiful things are like that, extraordinary one minute, gone the next.”
