    9. Bawling.eyes.out My Only is an emotional ride with stops in Sadness, Loneliness, Jealousy, Anger, Resentment, Happiness, Love and Contentment I didn t quite know what I was getting myself into when I started it but I wasn t expecting to feel so many emotions This book was distinctly different from other books I have read because it was told from a depressed, lonely male s POV Yes, I have read many books that are completely or partially from the male POV but this one was different and I liked liv [...]

    10. I been trying to gather my thoughts so i can attempt to write a review It s been so hard because this book was so deeply emotional Tears were part of reading this beautiful tale of first love Adam and OliviaThis book has all the elements to tell a story about a young man and a young women There were scenes that made me happy, laugh at times, some that warmed my heart, and others emotionally drained me I loved Olivia, I loved her free spirited heart Adam, i adored him, i loved his truthfulness an [...]

    11. view spoiler Did not really love how little Adam thought of himself I mean he practically forces himself on her as soon as they broke up Adam should have been first pick, not second best especially considering how much better they were suited for each other and that Adam was a sweetheart hide spoiler

    12. Adam and Aaron are twins but like any other twins, they are so different from each other Aaron is the jock of the two He s an athlete, a sociable person and everybody likes him especially girls On the other hand, Adam, oh Adam He s the geek in the pair, he s a member of the band where he excels as one of the rhythm drummers He s silent, and has little friends These two are way to different from each other, but they have a bond They were close and they truly love each other Their mother died givi [...]

    13. This review is originally posted to my blogJourney with BooksMy Only is the first book I ve read from Ms Sophia Duane and I must say that it s a revelation This book is a bittersweet novel that will surely make you run through a roll of tissue.I m not gonna write anything that will spoil the story for you Sometimes, we just need to let a book that we know little of, to take us in a journey that would let us see things in a different light because that is how real life works, and this book is all [...]

    14. Summary Adam and his twin brother Aaron couldn t be different Adam is shy, smart, introverted, and in the marching band His brother is popular, has lots of girlfriends, and is athletic The only thing they do have in common is their attraction to their new neighbor Olivia Olivia moves across the street into her grandparents home She and Adam quickly become friends Adam develops a big crush on her, but is timid about making a move Aaron on the other hand is fully prepared to step in and ask her o [...]

    15. Book one what When is book two out Who is book two about I need to know asap.Spoilers My god.I was not prepared for this type of ending Gosh sometimes I wish they would tell us in the description that someone will die But I guess it wouldn t produce a reaction if we knew Like me, I cried the moment his dad approached him to the very end I have a love hate relationship with books like these I hate when people die in books, especially when the main character loves them It makes it that much harder [...]

    16. 4.5 The last thing I expected from this book was to be up at 2ambawling , but that s exactly what happened I could not put it down once I got past the first few chapters, it was pretty different to read a whole book from a guys perspective, but still brilliant nonetheless All of the characters are so loving and Adam is adorable, from the beginning you can t help but root for him, sometimes you ve got to love the geeky underdog When I picked up the book I definitely didn t get what I was expectin [...]

    17. I m not really sure why I torture myself with these sad books This was heart breaking You couldn t help but feel for Adam and his life circumstances that make him feel inferior to his twin Aaron Until he meets Liv and she brings out so much in Adam This was a really touching story about growth, love, and living life to the fullest Have some Kleenex ready for this one

    18. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift That s why it s called the present Absolutely beautiful story I loved it.

    19. OMG This book was AMAZING It s sad to think the only reason people won t get to enjoy it is the price It s high for a kindle book It s a beautiful and heartbreaking story The characters were very realistic and believable A new favorite for me I highly recommend this Don t pass it up

    20. Make sure you have plenty of tissues Heartbreakingly beautiful Loved loved Adam in a sisterly kinda way Big bear hugs for him.

    21. A little slow start for me I am not sure I will be able to finish because I know this is a sad, heart crusher I need to be in the right frame of mind Maybe later.

    22. N.K Smith stepped me in to a machine and turned back the hand of time High school What is about those two words that make us cringe Well, at least for me it does and it s a time I d rather not remember but this book brought me back to an awkward few years of my life One word UGH It s a time when you become painfully aware of what your flaws are, who you aren t, who you wish to become and it doesn t matter if you are one of the cool kids or not High school is like serving a sentence for a crime y [...]

    23. You can find this and other reviews on my blog Dreaming In The Pages If I told you that I was pleasantly surprised by this book I would be lying I was blow away by my first Sophia Duane book and had to use than a few tissues to control my stream of tears Since I went into this book only reading the synopsis and no reviews I wasn t sure what I would get But once I flipped the last page, I can tell you that I got one the most bittersweet stories I have ever had the privilege of reading Now since [...]

    24. I hate being the rainy part of the rainbow is over flowing with positive reviews for this, most of them hovering in the five star range Though the premise didn t sound all that interesting, I appreciated the role reversal aspect, with the confident girl helping the shy boy Unfortunately, my appreciation for the book ended at that basic aspect.This was one of those astronomically slow reads, that really revelled in the insignificant and mundane details Adam s point of view is so riddled with over [...]

    25. Taken from vrindapendredI LOVED THIS The synopsis doesn t do it justice Yes, it s an apt summary of the storyline, but it doesn t convey the actual writing here because this is not a unique plot by any means, and admittedly I worked out where the story was going about halfway through the book, but none of that mattered because I just loved every moment of the way the author wrote it.The language was beautiful, and there were so many wonderful little lines that I kept highlighting My personal fav [...]

    26. This is a heartbreaking, beautiful story A story about different outlooks on life, on growing into oneself, and to embrace every experience life offers us Twin brothers, Aaron and Adam have very different personalities The book is told through Adam s POV He is such a gentle soul He is an introvert, unlike his brother who is popular and outgoing, especially with the opposite sex Olivia is the object of both of their affection and the three of them each have unique relationships with each other Sp [...]

    27. Spoilers Below Argh I really wished I read reviews on this book before I decided to read it I just did not like it First off there might be some SPOLIERS in my review because I just need to voice what I did not like about this book At first I really liked that Olivia was hanging out with the shy brother and I really thought that she like him Then she went and said yes to his brother Are you kidding me that s where the story kinda toke a turn for me Then when that goes sour she decided ok I will [...]

    28. You start to read the book, and with every page you turn,the author builds up the tension.You just know something bad is going to happen.I don t want to spoil anything.i enjoyed the read, i did NOT cry, but in the middle of the book, the tension between the twins got my stomach in a big knot,and i was feeling it along with them.Did not like the feeling, but NO tears If you liked chasing Nikky then this is your book to read.
