From The First Verse
Once upon a time…
There was a girl with long golden hair who had the truest, bluest eyes that turned white when she cried.
She lived in a kingdom far, far away in a tower made of stone, but her mind was made of glass that she kept sharp as knives.
Where her memories hid behind her darkest doubts.
Her deepest thoughts.
Her diary became the only thing she could rely on.
No one saw through her looking glass.
No one cared.
No one tried.
Until the villain presented himself as the hero in her life.
He took and took and took some more.
With no regret.
With no shame.
With no apology.
The page never turned.
Their story didn’t end.
Tomorrow never came.
His life of debauchery was their journey to nowhere.
She’d give anything to go back in time.
To walk where she had walked.
To see what she had seen.
One day at a time.
Though in the end, “I love you” were just words.
That destroyed us inside.
I am speechless with a torn heart, mind reeling and emotions are just raw. Monica Robinson has written one of her best works to date in this first book and of course packed with the angst in her style.
ARC Received for a honest review... as you may know it should know we met cash in the Love Hurts Duet. .. and as much as he totally pushed me off I just could not hate him and after reading From the First Verse.... Oh CASH CASH CASH.... ❤️ oh how I ❤️ you!!! Monica as I always say...
YOU HAVE COMPLETELY OUTDONE YOURSELF!!!
This book will bring ALL the tears so make sure the tissues are handy!!!!
Cash all though he may be Dylan F***ing McGraw’s boy he gives me the Austin (from crave me) feels... cash - wanting noting more then to be a rock god and had his dad approve... gets sucked down a very dark & dangerous path of self destruction...
Journey (aka our Junie) grew up loving Cash.. he was her first crush and love. And when he left her and his family to follow his dreams... and not return.. it left her crushed...
I looooove that our Queen gave us cash’s pov or a more in-depth part on the Harley/Baby part.. to understand why he did/said what he did. I need Till the Last Lyric like yesterday!!!!
Monica.. you never sease to amaze me... you are frigging amazing!!!!
“I’m going to show you what love is, Cash McGraw! You’ll see! I’m going to show you!”
No words can describe how excited I was for this book. And let me tell you the hype building up to this release didn’t disappoint.
Monica always knows how to draw us in and leave us wanting more. With Cash and Journey’s story you’ll feel the raw emotions of how they got to where they are.
“Music is what feelings sound like.”
It was great to see Cash’s side of things that have happened in previous books. Cash and Journey’s story is far from over and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds more and ends in the next book.
Well done Monica, you definitely have another hit on your hands with Cash McGraw
