Blog Tour Review: Wide Open by Shelly Crane.

Milo is trouble.

He lives it, breathes it. He embraces anything that numbs and takes his mind somewhere else, a world where his mother is herself and not just a shell, and his brother didn't almost kill her, severing any relationship they had. But more importantly, Milo drowns out the guilt for leaving his mother and not being able to forgive his brother. He drowns his pride and moves on to another girl and another party, pretending that life isn't moving on around him and he's stuck in the same place. He's stuck in the past and doesn't know how to let go.

Maya is trouble.

She's done the party scene and has had her fair share of close calls and handcuffs. Not the kinky kind. She's so over it all and fought like hell for that life to let go so she could move on. She now works as a teen counselor. Her life is better, but her life is empty. She has no one but her brother in the whole world left and he's sick with a disease that no medicine can cure.

When they meet, a romance that scares them both emerges, but the love you fight for is the love that can mend bridges, heal scars, and open closed hearts. They'll need each other, they'll want each other, they'll have each other.

But will it all come too late?


I wasn't sure  if i wanted to read about Mason's brother,Milo.That was because of the little things i read about him in Wide Awake, opinion is different right now after i read his story.Beautiful and perfect.
I loved the story,not because it was about two broken people,but because it was about two people who fell in love and found a reason to make their life better.A reason to live ,even if they still remembered their past and all the bad things they did.

Let's talk about Milo-not much ,just a little.He was an addict who tought that he didn't belong with his family or that he was a disaster,but the truth was that after he managed to stop using drugs he turned out to be a better human-someone who deserved to be loved and cherised by someone else.He managed to make me hate him and love him at the same time(i hated him because he wasn't thinking that he was someone who deserved to be treated right and i loved him because he was soooo charming.Swooon!Yikes.),but what really made me appreciate and regret that i ever thought about not reading his story was the fact that he proved that he was prefectly capable of loving someone so much.And ,yeah,swoon!He changed and that's what really matters after all.

And Maya.She was a sweet ,broken girl who lost too much in her life.Like Milo she managed to quit drugs,but that wasn't the end.I hated the fact that she was hurting so much.She was too sweet,kind and amazing,but well,that how the story is.
I loved how she acted when her relationship with Milo started.A little unsure and always trying to do what was right,but that's how life was for her and that's how she knew she had to live her life.Yes,it wasn't perfect,but i guess it wasn't easy after what she has been hrough.She never stoped hoping that maybe someday something good will happen to her ,even after all the bad things that happened in her life.

I was happy to read again about Emma and Mason-but i almost jumped up and down after Milo and Mason started talking again.It was perfect,it was exactly what i expected to happen.So,yeah,thank you!
So many ups and downs.So many bad moments.So many good moments.I don't even know about which one i should write or what i should keep to myself.
Yes,not everything was pretty and happy.So many horrible moments in which i almost stoped reading,but i guess i couldn't stop.Nope,i had to read everything.And i did it.And i am happy.

If i think about everything i can say that i wish some things never happened in this book,but then i remember that things wouldn't be the same and i think that it was better this way.The book was about how much you can  lose in life and how hard you can fall without knowing,and ,of course ,about how a person can change your life completely.That if you let him/her in.
In the end what really matters is the fact that Maya and Milo were perfect together.Happy ending?Heck Yes!

And: You Have To Read This Book Asap!
