“What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret? 
I’ll tell you what you do.
You lie.”


Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth.
His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror.
But then…he ran.
He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed.


I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything.
My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it.
At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why.
For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.
But by the end…he loved me.
The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him.
And slowly, my secret drove us apart.

Summary (Goodreads):

Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.

Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.

To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.

For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.

For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.

For me to walk out the door.

For it all to be over.

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Title Fonts on Covers

Yay! It’s my first TOP 5 Wednesday here @ WordPress! This tag is created by Lainey of gingerreadslainey. For the Goodreads Group: Top 5 Wednesday to check for every week’s topic. So, this Wednesday’s topic is Title Fonts on Covers

 Here are the books with beautiful title fonts:


To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

  • This book cover is a total package for me. I really love the font style of the cover.  Looks like a freestyle script in a vintage way. I swear, the first time I saw this I just fell in love with it. Very Lara Jean-y. 


The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

  • As much as I love the apple green cover, I cannot help appreciating this cover. There is so much emotion on the title font and the texts surrounding it. This book is really good by the way and so as its movie adaptation.


The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

  • I adore this font. It’s simple but edgy and gothic. It’s one of those fonts that will immediately attract you. Especially when you are in the mood for mystery thrillers.


Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters

  • One of the sexiest fonts I’ve ever encountered in a book cover. Yep. Just a friendly reminder, this book is NOT FOR YOUNG READERS. I’m definitely emphasizing that.


Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

  • How am I not gonna love this font? It’s so beautiful, elegant and classy. If I’ll get a metallic tattoo, that will be the font. YES. Can I be an alchemist like Sydney Sage? So Adrian Ivashkov will be mine. HAHAHA!

How about you? What are your favorite Title Fonts on Covers? Feel free to share. 😀
