"Gripping and painfully raw, Not the One stole my heart and held it hostage until the last page." 
~Liv Morris, USA Today Bestselling Author 

My name is Reyna Miracle. 
Even though a part of my name is Miracle, there’s nothing miraculous about me. 
My body portrays the tales of my life. 
Every feeling, every heartbreak, every emotion. 
Marked. Inked. Stained. 
A walking canvas of my messed up truth. 

But there’s one confession I can’t put in a tattoo. 
A confession that will kill me to tell, but my best friend died before I had the chance. 

Now I’m left with him. 
The only one who can hold me in the night and squeeze that spot on my neck that feels like my lifeline between sanity and chaos. 

But we don’t work together. 
We’re absolute poison for each other. 
We’re a stifling, suffocating, sickness of darkness. 

But I feel safe...because I’ve made an art of pushing people away. 

Now he’s pushing back…
And making me believe...
Making me wonder... 
Maybe, just maybe...
I could be the one.

But except her for what she is, and with Liam with her she's brill... Glad she finally put her demons in the closet and moved on.... Brill book, enjoy gx ❤️

    My Review Reyna is alone, she needs to be. She pushes everyone that she cares about away as hard, and as fast, as she can, you see she has a plague of sorrow that follows her, it infects everyone who gets close enough. She's the proverbial forest fire of destruction that destroys everything in her path and her black, almost dead heart can't possibly survive losing or hurting anyone else. Being alone? it's easier! I say almost dead heart...there's still that tiny flicker of hope. That one minuscule little breath on the wind that whispers to her that maybe, just maybe...she could be good enough...she could be strong enough, that winning her heart?...that that could be more than enough...that could be everything. How do you choose between the light and the dark? how do you decide between the safety and the comfort of hiding in your soft, warm blanket of misery with your souls mirror image? or stepping out into the cold, frosty light of day where every mistake is illumiated and you're laid, wide open and he can see you, the real you...the one that you hide and drown in a vat of alcohol to pretend isn't there? Well...You're going to have to have some down n Dawsy time to find out! and trust me? you need to find out!!! This.Book.Broke.Me! Now, if you know me? then you're already aware that i have slight psychotic tendencies when it comes to Ms Daws' writing. She cast her first spell on me about 18 months ago and has held my attention (and all of my stars) ever since. While all of Dawsy's books are frank-ly excellent (If you've read the series you'll get the joke) the 'London Lovers' series will always hold a special place in my heart! But this book? This is the book that pushed Amy into a whole new league! She isn't trading on a simple love story, this isn't about her sense of humour, this is the book where she stepped out of the ''norm'' she has done something here that, personally, i think is remarkable....Amy Daws has created an original idea! She's written a story about a woman that saved herself. A woman on the brink of utter destruction. She's the voice that pumps blood around Reyna's body...but Reyna's voice? This character is as real to me as my own son. I adore her. I sincerely doubt that any other author could've pulled this off and i salute you Madam Daws! And more importantly...i thank you. I thank you for spreading hope, i thank you for melting my heart a little and i thank you for staying true to Reyna's've done us both proud! 5 Stars and my official book of the year...maybe of all time!
