This is Blue and Piper’s story. Be aware going into this that it touches on sensitives issues such as drug abuse, depression and mental illness. This starts off with Piper at twenty-one years old and what you’d term a good girl, hardworking, caring, loving and easily pleased, working as an office administrator for a small fashion design firm, she spends most of her lunch hours tucked away on a bench in a quaint little park not far from work, one such day she’s drawn to the strumming of a guitar….. The guy appears to be in his mid-twenties, with a dog lying down by his side, she's instantly drawn to him, like a magnet that's attached itself to all her senses, he plays with so much depth and emotion that she can't help but get carried away by the soulful sounds he creates. These two and Acorn his dog strike up such a profound relationship, a toxic love that spans decades, theirs is not an easy ride, at times it's a ticking time bomb that could destroy them, a house of cards that will at some point come tumbling down, he's a vagabond that walks where his feet take him, He doesn't stay anywhere very long. He goes from place to place and only stays a few months before he goes on to the next place he wants to see. and she's the girl that's grounded that's never left her hometown. ‘No tomorrow’ attached it’s claws into me earlier than I would’ve thought possible, hitting the first chapter and I was beyond hooked, I didn’t want to put it down, I couldn’t put it down. The author had me sitting in the palm of her hand lapping up the words she was throwing my way, imagining smoke coming off my trusty iPad my bible as I sped through the pages of this book, the feels, the angst, the crazy love I felt for these two characters was insane..I also wasn’t expecting to have my heart ripped to smithereens. This book put me through the wringer, I swooned, I sighed, I raged, I cried, I giggled, but one emotion that stood tall above the rest is the love I had for this book, it crawled so far into my heart it’ll never unlatch itself. This book for me was utter perfection, utterly un-put-down-able, they were utterly perfectly imperfect for each other. I CrAzY LoVed ThIs BoOk!! “Did you know in Norway, there’s a myth that if a man and a woman see a ladybug at the same time, they’ll fall in love.” “No… I didn’t know that.” “We just looked at yours at the same time.” “That doesn’t count.

My head feels fuzzy. And I'm so in love with this incredible story that I can't even think of how to begin reviewing it. I love you like there’s no tomorrow.” I've never read this author before, but when I first saw the blurb for this book a few months ago, I knew this would be my first book by her. It hooked me immediately. Then I started reading it and I was DONE FOR. It sucked me right into its dark depths and didn't let me up until the very last page. This man is a drug and I’m an addict. I’m high on him and us, lost in the twirling world around me, every smell, sight, and touch heightened and vivid and so incredibly disconnected and hazy. The story spans years and spares no emotional detail. Piper and Blue first meet when she's only 21 years old and she spots a beautiful homeless man with a haunting presence playing guitar in the park that she frequents. Their connection is immediate. The two of them couldn't be more opposite, but you know what they say about that. Piper is the good girl to Blue's bad boy vibes, and the attraction between them sparks to life and entwines them in a fiery connection. Piper tries to understand the complexities behind Blue's eyes, but you always get the sense that there's something dark and painful that's brewing beneath the surface with him. He's a recovering addict and a troubled musician. He loves Piper in the only way he knows how. But love isn't enough to keep their tattered peaces from scattering in the wind. But what we have is a real love. It’s dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. This love—our love—is a love that never dies. It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before. Spanning fourteen years, No Tomorrow tells the story of their up and downs. And boy were there a lot of downs. A part of me wanted to hate Blue for his choices, but a bigger part of me just couldn't. This is a troubled man with many demons. I respect the author so much for not glossing over his issues. You get all of it; the good, the bad, and the worse. And while the story is told in predominantly Piper's POV, the few snippets we get inside of Blue's mind are incredibly potent. She’s the glue that held all my jagged cracks together, and I love her endlessly for it. Unfortunately, I’ve always known that eventually I’d break myself all over again and she’d be left with nothing but pieces. I fell in love with these characters. My heart ached right along with them. I rooted for them, I cried with them, and I was a ball of anxiety just thinking about how their story may end. No Tomorrow is a hauntingly beautiful romance full of depth and emotion. It was utterly captivating and sucked you right into the story. It was a book I won't be forgetting any time soon and one that I can't recommend enough. Blue was a rockstar unlike any I've ever read. If you're looking for something different and that'll make you feel, you've definitely found your next read. I fell hard and fast for her. She haunted me; lived in the fabric of my soul and inspired all the emotions and words that had always eluded me. ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest review Find me on:

It was hard at times to read but I knew their love could get them through anything. It was so powerful and all consuming there was no other way. It was also ugly, devastating and painful. I really appreciate the author showing those 2 sides of love. Its not always flowers and sunshine, but that doesn’t make it any less powerful, life changing and beautiful. I don’t want to spoil this story so I won’t go into details, but just know that this is one of the most beautiful, gut-wrenching books I’ve read this year. It consumed me and never let me go. I don’t know why I’ve never read a book by this gifted author before, but it’s something I plan on remedying soon. Her writing is magnificent and so touching. I don’t know what else to say other than read this book. It won’t be an easy journey but I promise you it’ll be worth it.

I have read a lot from this author and every book I have ever opened of hers has touched me in some way, shape or form "No Tomorrow" was for me the pinnacle of all these other reads and though I usually stay the hell away from anything to angsty I am so glad I took a chance on this as I felt that melancholy enchantment so starkly experiencing it down to the depths of my very soul. I honestly think this is one journey that just needs to be experienced in all its messy unapologetic glory. Going in blind here is probably the best thing you can do. Just living this pilgrimage of discovery right alongside Blue and Piper, feeling the intensity of sentiment and pure instinct as everything is amplified in this personal expedition of self-worth. So, This is not a traditional love story it is anything but, what we have here is a stark portrayal of obsession and need. Messy and sometimes selfish the road to happiness here is paved with heartache and tears. Theres no goodies and baddies in this it just is what it is. A bleak blunt spiral into absolute despair aided along in its ever-forward momentum by a lifelong battle with addiction and mental illness. I smiled and cried and also felt the depths of despondency right alongside Blue and piper I was in awe of pipers ability and capacity for caring and forgiveness she was such a strong warrior with the strength and resilience of a woman just in love with her man. I have to say through my own personal experience with mental illness and addiction that this author was so spot on in her portrayal of the downward spiral and also the mindset of someone dealing with such day to day demons. Demons that not only affect the individual but also the whole unit of friends and family especially a romantic partner. That's what I liked about this the most, there was no unrealistic love cures all this was a process that never goes away but can with time, attention and care be lived with and managed. It was such a raw honest narrative that I truly appreciated. And though I felt my heart in my mouth throughout I was also glued to every poignant magical word expressed here so powerfully. Such an arresting expressive dialogue with a wonderful multi-faceted cast. And I absolutely adored that epilogue; If I could give this more stars than five I so would, this is a story that's going to live within my heart for a very long time to come indeed. Please do yourself a favour and read; this one is in a league all of its own making. Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of "No Tomorrow" of which I have reviewed voluntary. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. Reviewed By Beckie Bookworm. https://www.facebook.com/beckiebookworm/ www.beckiebookworm.com

However, being homeless is not all of Blue’s issues and he will put Piper and a reader through a gauntlet of emotions. You will take breathers, rant to friends, and then jump right back in to see what happens next. Thank you Carian Cole for writing a story I was connected to and moved by!

It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before.” Warning : this book touches on some sensitive subjects so read with caution like drug abuse and mental illness. This is the third time that I try to write this review… Why is it the books that we love the most that are the most difficult to review???   Ok here I go … Carian Cole took me way out of my comfort zone here! I didn’t know it when I requested the ARC that one of the main topics would be about addiction to drugs. I avoid books with addicts like the plague, running the other way but as I love Carian’s books I read it anyway and …. have been on a roller coaster yet amazed. I never would have believed it if someone told me that one day I would read and love a book with such topic!   Why did I love it? Because Carian’s penmanship was uncompromising. She wrote “real and true”. Carian showed the complexity and bleak reality of loving and caring for someone with “problems” (sorry I stay vague here). She did not paint an unrealistic and rosy picture. She did not promise that love saves everyone in the blink of an eye and being addict you can be saved from all your personal demons only through pure love. No. But she also did not try to darken the story either and make it some mockery of being an addict. She did not paint her character as a heinous villain who deserves to suffer and hurt. No, her character is addicted yet is a fantastic human being. Someone caring, kind yet suffering from many demons. Her character did not ask for it.   This is Piper and Blue often toxic yet beautiful and real love story. Their attraction has been instantaneous and Blue will turn Piper’s world upside down. She won’t recognize the girl she’s become. She won’t believe what she did under that bridge. “I’m going to make you dirty, too. And it’s never going to wash off. “ Some will be horrified by what happened there. Most who know Carian will understand. Because her love stories are never easy and simple. Because she writes about human nature at its best and at its lowest. Because we all have flaws and real life is not like the fairy tales with rainbow and unicorns every day.   Some will be irritated by Piper. They will see her as a kind of “doormat” like her father did at some time. They won’t understand why she puts up with all this. Why is she still in love with Blue after all that he’s done to her? After all the broken promises. They will want to tell her to leave him and begin again with someone stable, uncomplicated. And that’s true that it takes a special person to love, care and stay with people “like” Blue.   When Pipper meets Blue she is wary of him. Yet soon enough with him she will feel beautiful, cherished and not the clumsy tiny woman everyone has always seen in her.   Blue has a presence. A magnetism that will enthrall Pipper. For him she’ll go through hell. Yet love has no expiration date and sometimes you can’t stop loving someone even if you know he will break your heart again and again.   As for Blue he is a very complex and restless character. Carian writes some of the most beautiful flawed male characters that I’ve read about. Vandal and Tyler are two of these broken characters. Yet Blue is by far the most complex, tortured yet so so lovable. Of course I wanted to let him go as he hurt Piper so many times yet I couldn’t help understand Piper. I have what is commonly called “the savior complex” and would have been unable to turn my back on Blue. Exactly like Piper who found her soul mate and wanted to love and help him so bad! “As much as I love the sound of the rain, the moody grey clouds and the rainbows, the storms trap me. I can’t stand the thunder and lightning and all the wind. That’s when I need you the most. You’re like my own little sunbeam.” A weak smile touches his lips. “You chase the storm away.”     This book is all about their relationship throughout the span of more than 10 years. Their love is true but complicated, violent, heartbreaking.   You will smile thanks to Acorn the dog waving at people leaving change for Blue when he plays the guitar. You will always be on edge. Waiting for the shoe to drop. For Blue to mess it up. You will swoon and you will cry. You will rage because they didn’t deserve this. You will admire Piper because she could set a limit and protect herself when it was vital yet still love Blue. And believe me that’s not easy feat! You will FEEL. One thing that’s for sure: you won’t feel indifferent.   What are your triggers/pet peeve in books?   Thanks for reading!

    I finished NO TOMORROW last night, and I’m still not over it. In fact, I don’t think I will ever be over it. I decided I needed to take some time to process what I had read and try to find the right words to do the story, and Carian, justice, but in all honesty, I’m not entirely sure that anything I say could adequately convey how special this book is. NO TOMORROW is a beautiful, heart-breaking, epic love story, that at times is brutally honest about issues such as drug abuse and mental health; I finished NO TOMORROW last night, and I’m still not over it. In fact, I don’t think I will ever be over it. I decided I needed to take some time to process what I had read and try to find the right words to do the story, and Carian, justice, but in all honesty, I’m not entirely sure that anything I say could adequately convey how special this book is. NO TOMORROW is a beautiful, heart-breaking, epic love story, that at times is brutally honest about issues such as drug abuse and mental health; subject matters that are very close to my heart and that are SO relevant and often shied away from. It was emotionally draining in the sense that it completely consumed me; I was wrecked, and at certain points I had to stop because the tears were clouding my vision and I could no longer see the words on my kindle. Its not hard to see that Carian poured her heart and soul into this, and I really am so in awe of her right now. Blue and Pipers story spans years. I fell in love with them both immediately, but I knew it wasn’t going to be an easy ride. If you are looking for a light-hearted romance, this isn’t it. At 65 chapters long, it’s no easy read, but let me tell you something, it is worth every single moment. I am giving nothing away about the story because I believe you just need to dive right in and experience it all for yourself. If you are new to Carian Cole, then here begins your journey. As someone who has read all of her books, multiple times, I can tell you that this is, without a doubt, her best work yet. “ Hugging my comforter tighter to me, I lean my head into the phone and quietly sob. Life and love can be so cruel and beautiful and utterly confusing. This isn’t the love I dreamed of as a little girl. This isn’t the whirlwind romance I swooned over in books. There’s no sparkly ring, no wedding bells, no husband holding our baby in the delivery room. But what we have is a real love. It’s dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. This love—our love—is a love that never dies. It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before.“ This passage just sums up Blue and Pipers relationship perfectly. This isn’t a conventional love story; it was raw, it was gut-wrenching, and in parts it was downright devastating, but it was perfection, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. NO TOMORROW is going to be one of those books that’s stays with me forever, and I know that everytime I reread it, I will fall in love as if it was the first time.

    If memories had a flavor, ours would be salt and blood. The story of Piper and Blue was gritty and raw!

It was almost too easy to empathize with these characters and their story was not only hot and intense, it was dramatic, emotional and life-affirming. I wasn't sure how to encapsulate this book without giving anything away and thought short and simple would do the trick. I'm literally holding myself back from revealing too much because this story was indeed fantastic. It tackles homelessness, judgmental attitudes and how they effect others, addiction, music, friendship, love and destiny. I couldn't help but agree that Piper and Blue seemed to be meant for each other and the hardships they faced to get to their happy ending were worth it. If you love a story that details a certain and unfortunate reality, you'll love this one! ☆.。.:* ARC provided for an honest review .。.:*☆ Release: 09.13.2018 | Genre: Contemporary Romance | Primarily heroine - 1st person | Heat: 3.5 | Standalone Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr

Well this book is one of those books. So far every book I read from this author and there were several has been a deeply emotional 5 star ride and I think by now it is safe to say she is a def. a 1-click-read once you liked one of her books. I am pretty sure if you liked Storm, Talon , Tied or any of her other books you will love this one. It will hurt – oh yes it will – but her writing is beautiful it is like a train wreck – like the movie Titanic – you know that ship is sinking but you still cannot bring yourself to change the channel … THAT kind of hurt. Dear Author thank you for sharing these wonderful characters with us – please continue to choose plots like this and never change how you write. Even if this book came so much later then expected it was worth the wait. ═══ PLEASE SUBSCRIBE / LIKE / FOLLOW US ════ Blog : https://www.jerisbookattic.com FB Page : https://www.facebook.com/JerisBookAttic Twitter : https://twitter.com/JeriTRyan Goodreads : https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2...

It withers in the dark and comes back to life again under bright moments even stronger than it was before."   Blue aka Evan kept to himself; living in the street no one pay him any attention except for her.  Blue and Piper's chemistry was instant he was hot and his music attracted Piper towards him.  They became friends and there was no denying they both wanted each other.    "There's a myth that if a man and a woman see a ladybug at the same time, they'll fall in love."   This story was unique, deep, overload with feels and angst.  I honestly couldn't stop reading from the minute I picked it up, I had to know how this madness would end.  I literally had butterflies, lots of sick stomach feels and lets just say I cried more than I can count.  I absolutely devour this story from beginning to end and I can honestly has I regret nothing.  This author delivered a deep story with hard and painful topics and my emotions were all over the place.  The couple were hot together; the chemistry on point and the levels of pain was bitter sweet.  For readers who enjoy an unforgettable deep story, this is for you.    "Life and love can be so cruel and beautiful and utterly confusing. This isn’t the love I dreamed of as a little girl... But what we have is a real love. It’s dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between."    Book Info: Standalone F(BR) with Jennifer! For more reviews/reveals/giveaways visit:

Yes, I knew that going in (I do #fangirl over the author), but still. No Tomorrow is an epic romance that gave all the feels. ALL. OF. THEM. And made it so difficult for me to put down that I had to put a timer on so I would miss the adulting I had to do for the day. That’s how far down the rabbit hole I fell for Piper and Blue’s story. I got lost in it. Even when I wanted to toss the #Kindle into the freezer out of sheer frustration, I couldn’t because I NEEDED to know what would happen next and see them get the HEA they so desperately deserved and in the end I was emotionally drained but not disappointed in any way. I loved Piper and Blue, I did, but boy did these two put me through the ringer. I swooned, I bled, I raged, I got frustrated (hence almost tossing the Kindle into the freezer), I got all teary and sniffly, I laughed and I questioned their actions and reactions, but in the end I rooted for them. I wanted them to get their HEA even when I couldn’t understand it all because they had that connection between them. That elusive and indescribable thing that had them so embedded in each souls that nothing, and no one, could break. But what made it work for me was that they both evolved. They both grew into the people they were always meant to be without losing who they were at their very cores and though it was a difficult process it was a very satisfying one in the end. No Tomorrow is an experience. It is a journey. And it is a romance that may not appeal to everyone. There are issues that are raised and situations that the characters find themselves in that may be difficult for some the deal with and accept, but each of them are ones that are necessary to the characters evolution. To say that this book was well worth the wait is an understatement, but it is the simplest way to put it. You can see just how much blood, sweat and tears the author put into this baby and it was all well worth it because you aren’t just getting a romance. You are getting an epic romance that will stick with you long after you’ve read the very last words. ~ Copy provided by L. Woods PR & voluntarily reviewed ~

    Bravo Carian Cole! Epic love like rarely written before. I am so proud of how the subject of addiction and mental illness were tackled here. Her approach was brilliant and shameless and it took my breath away. No alpha BS here!!

This book absolutely and completely captivated me and I could not put it down. I started reading yesterday afternoon and finished it in the early hours of this morning, and now I’ve slept on it, I still can’t stop thinking about it, and I want to read it all over again. It’s been a long time since a book affected me like this, and I’m still “Our love may be unexpected and flawed, but it’s ours. That’s all that matters.” 6 angsty, emotional, incredible stars! Yes, 6 stars, because OMG, this book! This book absolutely and completely captivated me and I could not put it down. I started reading yesterday afternoon and finished it in the early hours of this morning, and now I’ve slept on it, I still can’t stop thinking about it, and I want to read it all over again. It’s been a long time since a book affected me like this, and I’m still all overwhelmed by the feels and the emotional rollercoaster that this story sent me on. I’ve read all of Cole’s books, I know that she writes emotion well, and after reading that blurb I knew this book was going to be something special. And I was not wrong. Piper and Blue’s story captured my heart in all of its passion, intensity and angsty deliciousness. I fell in love, my heart was broken, and I was healed over and over as I read. I felt everything, and I revelled in the epicness of this love story. I’m not always a fan of angst. It has to be done right, and in this book it was done right. Piper and Blue’s relationship is emotional and tumultuous, and at times it’s a hot mess. It’s functional dysfunction with no stupid behaviour or game playing. It’s life, with all of the hard, messy complications that come with it. And though it made my heart ache, it was beautiful in its brokenness with sweet moments, happiness, and so much love. Gah! I can’t gush enough! We meet Piper as a shy, quiet, introverted 21 year old who is just starting out in life. She still lives at home, but she’s working and saving for her own place, and she keeps to herself as much as possible. While taking her usual lunchbreak in the park, she spies a musician singing and playing guitar, and she feels instantly drawn to him and his music. Day after day she returns, unable to stay away and stunned when the gorgeous man begins to share secret glances and smiles with her. When they finally meet for real, it’s like a sense of rightness, of things clicking into place, and as she begins to spend time with the man who calls himself Blue, her whole world changes. Blue is unlike anybody Piper has met before. Gorgeous and tattooed with long hair and piercings, he oozes bad boy, but he is endlessly charming and sweet, just with an edge. Homeless by choice, he’s a man who has spent his life wandering, never settling, just following wherever his soul leads with his trusty dog by his side, and he takes Piper’s world by storm, claiming her body, heart and soul. Grabbing my waist, he pulls me against his body and leans down, pressing his lips against my forehead and holding them there for a few moments. “I like you, Piper.” “I like you, too,” I whisper. “I think I might need you in my life.” But all too soon Blue leaves Piper shattered, and the book follows their story over the years as they come in and out of each other’s lives. Blue climbs to the heights of success as a massive rock star, while Piper watches and loves him from afar, and as they are reunited over and over again, it’s clear that the connection they share is still very much there. These two are soulmates, but their lives are complicated by so many other factors, and it’s a matter of riding the storm with them as they fight for their much-deserved happy ending. That’s a very quick summary, and it doesn’t give the book the justice it deserves, because there is so much story in this story, so much that these characters go through, I just don’t want to give any of it away because you just need to dive in and experience it. It’s not always an easy read, there is some very serious subject matter, and there are some triggers to be aware of (view spoiler)[drug use, mental illness, suicide (hide spoiler)] , I had tears streaming down my face more than once, and my heart literally ached, but at the centre of it all is an incredible love story between two people who love deeply, fiercely and forever, and it’s so, so beautiful! “I love you like there’s no tomorrow. Don’t ever forget that.” Piper and Blue’s love for each other is wild, intense and all-consuming. I could feel it, and I was completely swept up in the emotion of it all. It’s incredibly passionate, and the sexy time is hot and dirty, brimming with intensity, and a true reflection of Piper and Blue’s feelings and need for each other. But they also have a sense of playfulness that balances out all of that intensity beautifully, and makes it all feel so real. “I really fucking miss you. I know you’re so sick of my shit. And I know you probably wish I’d just leave you the fuck alone. I try to, but it never works.” “No,” I say, cringing at how fast I said it. “That’s not what I want. I’ve never wanted that.” He takes a deep breath. “You want to tell me what you do want?” My ovaries scream his name. “No, I don’t.” “It’s me, isn’t it,” he teases in his wicked sexy voice. I laugh, even though I don’t want to. “Ego much?” “No, it’s not ego. Just wishing thinking.” This is very much a character-driven story and the character growth is just phenomenal. Both Piper and Blue go through so much, and there is so much development of who they are, and how they relate to each other. Of course I completely fell for Blue, his dirty bad boy rocker persona contrasts wonderfully with his sweetness, openness and vulnerability, and the way he poured his heart out for his girl had me in a world of swoon. And Piper so impressed me with her strength, devotion and protectiveness, and I thought she was just amazing. There are also a host of side characters that contribute wonderfully to the story, and I’m hoping hard that we’ll get to revisit this world with stories for some of the side characters, starting with Blue’s best friend, Reece!!! This is a long-ish book, but I happily lost myself to it as I was completely absorbed in the story. It felt right, and the pacing is really well done, detailed in a way that lets us feel everything that’s happening. Life and love can be so cruel and beautiful and utterly confusing. This isn’t the love I dreamed of as a little girl. This isn’t the whirlwind romance I swooned over in books. There’s no sparkly ring, no wedding bells, no husband holding our baby in the delivery room. But what we have is a real love. It’s dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. It finishes beautifully with an epilogue that had me grinning and hugging my kindle in bliss. I truly feel like I experienced something special with these characters and their amazing journey, and I know this is a story that is going to stay with me for a long time. 6 shining stars!

I didn't find their love connection all that epic. It was mostly toxic, wrong, unrealistic and potentially dangerous. I feel like this one of those books that try to make it romantic to always act like a punching bag to someone who treats you like crap and is untrustworthy, just because well.. They love each other more than anything. So she should just stand there and take the abuse. Be left behind, be apart for years and never moving on or meeting another guy and trying to be happy. Maybe I'm getting too old or I just experienced too much relationship crap to like books like these. They stopped being romantic to me and are just.. bad examples. Mental/emotional/physical abuse shouldn't be romantized. It's not romantic to constantly allow yourself to be hurt, because you just love him and 'oh well he is who he is'. I don't think it's romantic to have someone string you along and demand that you'll always keep loving them and leaving a place for them, when they keep leaving you behind. There is also some serious addiction/mental health stuff, so if you want to avoid that, this is not the book for you. This book also contains the biggest romance book cliche, one that I'm not a huge fan of. And a teeny bit of (view spoiler)[OW, while she remains celibate for over 9 years aside from the occasional time they are together for a little bit (hide spoiler)] . I don't think the author is bad.

Judging by all the 5 star reviews, I'm definitely in the minority.

I sometimes write reviews where I say that I love every single page of a book, but this is not one of those.

I feel exhausted and raw, my feelings too exposed, my heart too fragile and too big for my chest. Carian Cole...sigh. 💔 There is soooo much that happens in this story that I can't tell you about. You just have to dig in and survive it. Yes, it will blow your mind. Yes, it will break your heart. But it will also fill it too. Love is love is love and the presence of pain does not negate that love. Yes, everyone thought she was crazy for falling in love with a homeless musician that had nothing to offer her. If she had been given a choice, maybe she would have chosen not to fall. But by the time she realized it, it was too late, and he was ingrained in her soul. I wanted to hate him for the pain he caused, over and over and over. But, like her, I love him too. He promised her every tomorrow. But this story is titled No Tomorrow, and that fact kept flashing in the back of my head as I turned every page with fear and hope. This story wrecked me, but I wouldn't change a thing about it. Just be prepared, you will need tissues. I know this is a standalone, but there are some amazing support characters that have their own stories that I'm hoping the author decides to write. The line forms here...

    This book...wow. I've read all of Carian Cole's books, and this is probably her best. I can't even imagine the amount of research that must have gone into writing this book, along with the mental and emotional toll it must have taken to write it. It is epic, beautiful, painful, and honest. The depth of this book is incredible. The topics of addiction and mental health are handled honestly, showing both the ugliness that comes with them and the beauty that can come from them. I think this book is This book...wow.

The topics of addiction and mental health are handled honestly, showing both the ugliness that comes with them and the beauty that can come from them. I think this book is important, as too often these topics are avoided or not honestly handled. Not only do you get to see immediate affects of these things, but you get to see the long lasting aftermath. It's not easy or pretty, and it can't be resolved in a couple of chapters. Not only do we get to see these things from Piper's and Blue's point of view, we also see the reactions of those around them. Their friends and loved ones, and how lines can be drawn that force you to pick a side. This book isn't just about falling in love. It's about the dark sides that come with a deep and true love. It's about loving someone through their best and worst, about choosing to stay or go, and about discovering what makes someone "worth it". This is not a book you can easily devour, though you will want to. This is a book that will make you feel and make you think, and you will walk away from it a different person.

It was wonderful being on their journey of falling in love for the first time. Beautiful, addictive, would do anything for you kind of love. However, being a Carian Cole novel we know things are never going to go smoothly for our lovelies. As much as their love is beautiful, it is toxic too. I don't want to give anything away, however just know that you are going to be taken on a rollercoaster of a ride. I never knew what I was going to get as I turned each page of this book. Would I be laughing? Would I be crying? Would I be throwing my Kindle across the room? Sometimes it was all in the same page! No Tomorrow does deal with some dark issues like addiction and mental illness, and it is done well. As someone who suffers from depression, this cut right to my heart. It is a day since I finished reading this book, and it is still with me. I am still thinking about our lovelies. I have read everything by Carian Cole to date, and I have to say, No Tomorrow is right up there at the top as a favourite. I already feel like I need a reread, and I am jealous of everyone who gets to read this for the first time. I can't wait to see what Ms Cole brings us next.

    I can honestly say this is by far the best book I have ever read. All of Carian’s books are amazing but this one goes a million times above the rest. I am not an emotional reader but this books takes you such a journey filled with highs and lows, laughs and tears, and everything in between. When an author can get me to connect with character so much that I am crying with them and feeling every emotion with them that is an accomplishment. This book was so worth the wait.

I'm not sure how to review it, but if nothing else I will say that this book is one big trigger for anyone intmately familiar with the issues dealt with in this novel, in particular rampant mental illness, alcoholism and drug addiction. And anyone looking for a rocker story or a read with some lightness to it should keep looking. No Tomorrow is neither of those things.

And anyone looking for a rocker story or a read with some lightness to it should keep looking. No Tomorrow is neither of those things. The somber, almost foreboding note is present from the outset, and persists throughout the telling. The writing is solid, but the plot is dark and frustrating and I'm left with the dilemma of being unsure whether the heroine is a masochistic fool or a saint. The heart wants what the heart wants, very true, but at some point - at least in my opinion - self-preservation has to kick in. Doesn't it? I am not being unkind here when I say that 'Blue' - Evan - does not in any way represent a hero in this genre. In no previous romance novel have I ever encountered a principal character with the demons and level of damage he has. This guy is fucked. up. And in the end it pushes the limits of my belief that someone would so stubbornly cling to such a man, who incidentally was physically separated from the heroine through most of a story that takes place over about 20 years. It honestly begs the question 'when is enough, enough?' But I guess we can't help who we love and there aren't limits to that love. Anyway, judge for yourself. I am an admitted angst junkie, but even I need the respite of a hopeful moment here and there and the shadows didn't lift enough for me to fully connect to the characters or the story of their lives. The focus was all on the negative, basically unrelieved grit. I was drawn in by the blurb for this book months and months ago and I pounced as soon as it was released. But it wasn't at all what I expected and I wasn't even sure I wanted to finish it at one point. But I did and was left feeling hollowed out. I won't give up the ending except to say that I was mildly surprised. I've decided it ended as it should have rather than how it could have, but it wasn't a satisfying experience for me as a whole. This was my first experience with Carian Cole and my review isn't a reflection on her writing. She's actually quite good and the book is very well written, an authentic and unflinching take on the issues it deals with. I would simply caution anyone who might be susceptible to proceed with caution. Ambivalent as I feel about this one, I'll keep it neutral with a 2.5 rating.

This book sucks you in and it doesn't let you go, and I didn't want it to. I held on for dear life. It was incredible. Emotionally gripping, pulse pounding. Carian Cole not only pulls on your heart string, she snips all the cords and performs a riveting surgery to piece you back together. You feel something, on every single page of this book. From love and happiness, to desperation and soul crushing heartbreak. No Tomorrow is a book I will remember for years. It is so beautifully written and flows effortlessly. I don't want to go into detail about this book, I usually give pretty in depth reviews, but you just have to experience this one on your own. I'm not giving any lame safety warnings or whatever. I will warn you that if you DON'T read this book, you are missing out on one of the best books I have ever read. I don't say that a lot. Blue and Piper are two amazing characters. I loved them, and I hated them, and I cheered for them, sobbed with them and FOR them. Angst\Suspense-***** Writing Style- ***** I normally only read books with DUAL POV and it didn't even dawn on me that this was mainly from Piper's POV, and I didn't even bat an eye. Drama ***** Nothing over the top or just thrown in for thriller\shock value. Everything had a purpose and a point. Unique Plot- ***** Humor ***** There was some humor, not a lot, but it didn't really need it, but when there was humor, it was laugh out loud funny. Twists- ***** More twists and turns than a rollercoaster at Six Flags Blue (Male Lead\Hero) ***** " I like you Piper." - Blue " I like you, too." - Piper " I think I might need you in my life." - Blue Piper (Female Lead\Heroine) ***** I was super worried that Piper was going to be what I hate most, a doormat. But the chick is strong. Stronger than I could ever be if I went through half the things she does. Call it lust or love. Call it whatever you want. I'm in deep. I'm drowning in him, and no life boat is coming to save me. - Piper - We were born in the rain.- Piper
