Ten years is a long time when you’re thirty-two. We’d seen our share of ups and downs, but I could honestly say, they were mostly up. That’s the thing about happiness though. It lulls you into a false sense of security.
Neither one of us ever thought we’d ever be touched by crippling loss or immeasurable grief. But not all stories have a happy ending, and I knew, better than anyone, that sometimes, one of you won’t make it till the end. One of you has to go first. And one of you will be left behind to pick up the pieces.
That one is me.
But starting over isn’t what I thought it would be. I need escape from the memories that plague me, remind me. So I went back to where it all began. To the town where I was born. To the place whose beauty could pierce my pain. Where I experienced my first kiss, where I fell in love, where a man was my earth. And I…
I was his sky.
You never had a girlfriend.” I whispered.
“No, Rylie. I didn’t.”
I pushed away from him, my mouth coating itself in preparation for what was to come, and ran toward the field behind his parents’ house. I threw up everything in my stomach, but I kept heaving with wracking sobs, unable to keep my shit together. If I’d listened….if I’d answered his letters…if I hadn’t met Nick…
His hands were in my hair, pulling it back, but it was no use. I was a mess in every way possible.
“This isn’t…” I hiccupped, “how I imagined this going.”
“Yeah?” he said softly. “How’d you imagine it?”
“We would have it out, and then we’d have angry sex, and then we’d fall in love and have babies and live happily ever after.”
“Oh Rylie,” he said with humor in his voice, not at all bothered when he wiped the edges of my disgusting mouth with his hand. “I’ll be pissing you off again…probably on purpose just so we can have that angry sex you just mentioned.”
About the Author:
Julie is a southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably a romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin)and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers).
She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she might be a singer/songwriter. The ‘writer’ part is that one that stuck.
Julie is obsessed with Pi…the equation and the food. She’s allergic to cats, cantaloupe and hates mushrooms. So if you ever want to give her a gift, those are out for sure.
She currently lives with her romance hero husband and two boys in Melbourne, Australia.

Watching The Sky Cry was everything to me. This book about two soulmates, tortured souls who reconnected and found their way back to home hit me hard. I was hooked from the first page. Damn if I wasn’t enthralled and carried away by emotions.
The story wasn’t beating around the bush. The pain, the love, I felt it all!
Quentin and Rylie were best friends and star crossed lovers. Broken and bruised by life, trying to heal apart by totally failing it, the more they were apart, the more destructive they seemed to be. Epic love romance that gonna sweep you off your feet.
It was an internal turmoil of emotion, like a tsunami devastating everything in its path. Rylie and Quentin got that second chance in love and after all they’ve been through, it was about damn time. I was utterly lost and transported into their journey. I was surprised by the turning events and mostly how the author managed to get us addicted, where each characters’ drama were melting perfectly on the story, each one had their part, never overstepping on the others.
It was absolutely beautifully written. Heartbreaking and poignant, I finished this at 2am and I’ve been served with a huge hangover.
Watching The Sky cry reminds me why I love J.B. Hartnett, and how she is an amazing storyteller. She don’t mess around. Just letting you feel, raw, gripping and so intense.I really missed your stories, J.B. and I was so glad to get to read this one, thank you so much for the gift.
An EPIC romance, straight to the guts. I lived Quentin and Rylie’s journey with all my heart.
