Navigating mental wellness and healing is messy. One might also say, it ain't pretty! But when written by a master of words, I would go as far as to say that it can be beautiful. Beautiful in a complex, angsty, disastrous, frustrating and ultimately human way. In this conclusion to this duet we revisit Landon & Shay not only where part 1 ended, but throughout the next decade of their personal and combined struggles and their journey back to their love. Like I said, it ain't pretty, but it's real and it's beautiful in it's own way. Normalizing mental challenges in stories such as this is SO necessary in this day and age. The world needs this, the book community needs this, I needed this. Well done Brittainy... well done!

Our Favorite Quotes

The bravest people in the world live with fear - they just let their drive drown out fear's sounds.

That's what we both do for one another. We make each other better without even trying. What's what love is, I think. Love is feeling healed whenever you're near your person.

It took me a long time to realize that darkness could be beautiful, too. So many beautiful things lived in the shadows, and it was our duty to be kind enough to them and to remind them that they, too, belonged.

From The Publisher


Once upon a time, I fell in love with a boy.
A beautiful, broken boy who had his own world of struggles.

People warned me against our love, but I didn't listen.
We looked weak.
Young, foolish.
Dangerously in love.
We didn't care.

In order to keep our hearts protected from the opinions of others, we became each other’s secret.
We shared stolen moments. Tender touches. Secretive embraces.

It was our twisted love story, and it worked for us up until our lives changed forever.

The boy I loved became Hollywood’s newest golden boy.
His career blossomed as mine stalled.
He found massive success as I discovered multiple failures.
He made something of himself, while my dreams never came true.

We moved into different realms where our pieces no longer fit together.

In the fairy tales, love conquered all.
In reality, love was the main reason empires began to fall.

I always knew Landon belonged in my story.
He was my beginning, middle, and end.
The only problem? I wasn’t certain I still belonged in his.

*Book Two of the Landon & Shay Duet.*


Book 1:

I'm a mom of 2 rad AF adults, 1 fresh baby and a super cute fur babe. Hospital administration by day, yoga instructor by night, travel junkie, shoe addict, foodie and avid reader in all the spaces in-between. I got my love of books from my mama and honestly can’t remember a time in my life where reading wasn’t a daily priority. I’m a sappy hopeless romantic who’s a sucker for 2nd chances, mature characters, and serendipitous connections. In an ideal world, you can find me on the beach with an icy cold adult libation in one hand and my Kindle in the other.
