Reaching for sunlight...
Finn survived the ambush and came home to me, but in his head, the battle is still raging. He’s falling apart and I’m trying my best to pick up the pieces of him, to find the us we used to be. I love him as much as I ever did, but love isn’t enough to fix this. I thought telling my father about our relationship would be the hardest thing we’d ever have to face. I was wrong.
Lost in shadows...
All I wanted was to be worthy of Carrie. One mission, just one, and I’d be able to give her the future she deserved. Then everything went wrong, leaving me tainted and broken. Carrie wants me to be who I was, but all that’s left is what they made of me. I’m no good for her. No good for anyone like this. I have to figure out how to move forward. Alone.
Sometimes love isn’t enough…

I wasn't sure how I was going to get through this book, in fact, it hasn't taken me this long to read a book in forever. Between constantly wiping away tears, and having to take a break to pick my heart up off the floor and put it back together, I was a complete emotion wreck while reading this book. What an apt title this book has, because it quite literally had my going out of my mind!
I have loved every second spent with Carrie and Finn. Their relationship was filled with ups and downs, and it was tested to the max on more than one occasion. But, what went down in this book, truly tore me to pieces. It came too close to home, and I felt all the pain and anguish that was poured into every page.
This book was a lot darker than the others. Finn was a complete mess. With one loss after another, I'm not sure how he coped, and I could see why it nearly drove him insane. I hated that his circumstances ripped into his relationship with Carrie, but I held onto hope that love would save them. After all, we've been taught that true love conquers all, so why would it be any different this time.
Aside from being scared for Finn, I was extremely proud of him. He did some stupid things, messed up everything that meant anything to him, but he did it with a good heart, and he was willing to work at it when the right time came. I just prayed that it wasn't too late. He was a good guy in a bad place, but he deserved his happiness, and that meant being with Carrie.
This book was hard-hitting, emotional and will make you cry like a baby. I feel so blessed to have read a book that could move me so completely. It was a spectacular read, that I am sad to see come to an end. However, I'm so glad I'm the type of reader who reads EVERYTHING in a book, otherwise I would have missed the hint that Marie, Hernandez and Riley will all be finding their happiness. I cannot wait!!
