ARC: A Thousand Boy Kisses - Tillie Cole

Published Date: March 15, 2016
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: One kiss lasts a moment.
But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime.

One boy.
One girl.
A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade.
A bond that neither time nor distance can break.
A bond that will last forever.
Or so they believe.
When seventeen-year-old Rune Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove, Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation?
Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come.

Standalone Young Adult Tearjerker Romance.
For ages 14 and up.

Review: I have been holding off on this review for a while now. I didn't know how to put this book into words. So I think that I finally found the words that I needed. Motivational. Inspiring. Romantic. Moving. Etc. But I can definitely agree that this was a tear jerker. I definitely ugly cried. Here and there. Tillie knows how to put romance and a heart felt story together.

Here lies the death of my heart. I think I cried a good majority of this book. So thanks, Tillie. I have Kim Kardashian crying face and I'm in public while I try to get through this book.

I was expecting a bad book. I am not going to lie. Not only was I pleasantly surprised at how well Tillie can make someone cry, but she also can bring joy into the depths of someone's black heart. 

I swooned for Rune. Oh hey, that rhymes. Clever me. 

The book progresses as they grow up. Their characters develop their complexities and then boom, you're hit in the face with the truth. Would you believe I cried again? THANKS.

Now without any spoilers, I can say that if you're looking for a not to graphic romance novel that will tear your heart to pieces, this is definitely the book for you. I'm leaving now with a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
