My name is Milo Caro and I have a confession to make. I’ve been in love with Colton Mathews since I was five. He should have known that sharing a cookie with a sugar obsessed little monster would do the trick–it sealed his fate. So really, the fact that he’s sporting a black eye, a limp, almost got ran over by a car, and was nearly responsible for another person’s death? Right. HIs fault. Not mine. I made a pact with myself–this weekend would be different. I’d come home for my brothers wedding, smile, and Colton would naturally melt into my arms, we’d get married have five kids, live in a house by the river, and get a dog named scratch (clearly I’ve thought this through). What really happened? I punched my brother in the face, Colton kissed me and apologized, I lied about having a boyfriend, oh and everyone wants to meet the mystery man. They say laughter always comes before insanity–ha, ha. All I wanted was my brother’s best friend…instead I’m sitting in prison. Let this be a lesson to you all…life rarely happens the way you want it to. Damn cookie.
Four Boundless Stars
This is the first audiobook I've actually listened too. All I can say is, this is awesome.
The story of Milo and Colton is one you would love to see as a movie. That's if they did it right. It's so funny how we can't just tell the person we like, how we feel. Damn that fear of rejection!
Now, I kind of wanted to slap everyone and say get it together! He loves you, you love him now go bump uglies.
I loved all the characters, they brought so much to the story. Though, Milo did annoy me. Yes he does think you're beautiful! Why would you even doubt it?! Gosh.
"...when in the end, she rescued me. Just by smiling. By breathing. By trusting me. By kissing me back."
Anyway, I really did enjoy this story. It was a fun, crazy read. I think Rachel really wanted you to feel that frustration of it. The craziness that we all go through for love.
“Love is never a sure thing, man. You’re never going to be totally certain that the person you offer your heart to will accept it with open hands, but if you don’t take that risk you’ll never reap the benefits of what it has to offer."
Pretty much.. Swoon worthy
