Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.
Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.
Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.
Who taught her how to laugh.
Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.
This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.
But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.
When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.
Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.
My Review: 5 stars
So many emotions! So many tears! So many WTF moments!
Knight and Luna have been friends their entire lives. (We met both of them in their fathers stories in the Sinner of Saints Series)
Luna is a select mute. After her mother left when she was 2, she stoped talking. Does she want to live her life like this? No. She wants to talk. The only person who ever hears her talk, and its just a word or two, is her step-mom, Edie. She just can’t do it. She can’t use her voice. It didn’t help when her mother left, why would it help now.
Knight is the player. Always has a girl around, but never the girl he wants. He wants Luna but he knows he isn’t good for her. He knows he is not the boy she needs. So he does everything he can to push her away, in the relationship kind of way. But he never lets her go too far. Why? He loves her.
But when Luna didn’t take his advances towards her, he pushed her away. And with the help of a friend of his (without his knowledge) it was enough to make her leave and go to college out of town.
Knight and Luna were both lost. Lost when they were apart. Lost when they were together.
Knight makes some terrible decisions that push Luna away even more than he already had. Luna makes some bad decisions because Knight pushed her away.
But when tragedy strikes, Luna comes back for Knight. She comes to save him. She comes to save her “Knight in Shining Armor”. But will it be enough? Is Knight too lost? And even worse, has Knight lost Luna forever?
This book made me want to pull my hair out at times. Knight was so frustrating. Hot and cold. Nice then mean. And he was defiantly a mean drunk. The things he said made me want to reach thought the pages of the book and punch him.
But he also broke my heart. He was so lost. So broken. And his mom (adoptive mom) Rosie was really sick. (She is from Scandalous and I loved her character)
But this book was so much more than just a book. It was about love and loss. It was about forgiveness. It was about learning that sometimes you need to take a step back and learn from your mistakes.

I love the idea of reconnecting after time. Especially with some disability rep in there ❤ This sounds like something I'd enjoy.. especially as you generally can't go wrong with Shen. Great review! 🙂
