How The Light Gets In

Book Description:

A Crack in Everything

Life used to be simple.

I was a city girl with humble dreams. Then Dylan O’Dea broke into my flat, held me against the wall and told me to stay quiet.

It was like in the movies, where the universe zeros in on a single scene. I looked into his eyes and knew he was going to change me.

For Dylan, the sky was always falling. He showed me how our world is a contradiction of beauty and ugliness. How we choose to ignore the awful and gloss over it with the palatable. How you need just a tiny drop of something unsavoury to create every great scent.

Pretty deep for a pair of teenagers living in a block of council flats in inner city Dublin, right Probably. But we weren’t typical. We both had our obsessions. Mine was growing things, Dylan’s was scent. He taught me how to use my nose, and I introduced him to the magic of flowers.

I had no idea that one day he’d build an empire from what we started together. But before that, there was love and happiness, tragedy and epic heartbreak…

My name is Evelyn Flynn and I’m going to tell you about the crack in everything.

A Crack in Everything is Book #1 in L.H. Cosway’s Cracks duet.

How the Light Gets in
He came back to me 16 minutes and 59 seconds into Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7.

We parted amid tragedy, so it seemed poetic. Dylan O’Dea, my childhood sweetheart, had once meant everything to me. Now we were strangers, and honestly, after eleven years I never thought I’d see him again.

 

I lived in the world of the average, of getting paid by the hour and budgeting to make ends meet. But Dylan, he lived in the world of wealth and success. He’d achieved the great things I always suspected he would. The dissatisfaction he’d felt as a teenager had obviously been an excellent motivator.

 

He started a business from scratch, pioneered a brand, and created perfumes adored by women across the globe. I was just one of the people who’d been there before. Now he was living his best life in the after.

 

And me, well, I’d been in a dark place for a while. Slowly but surely, I was letting the light back in, but there was something missing. I was an unfinished sentence with an ellipsis at the end. And maybe, if I was brave enough to take the chance, Dylan could be my happy ending.

How the Light Gets In is Book #2 and the concluding installment in L.H. Cosway’s Cracks duet.

⭐️A Crack in Everything

I started to read A Crack In Everything and oh my, my heart just cracked a little, Evelyn and Dylan took my breath away, and the butterflies…the freaking butterflies.

In a place where everything seems dark and all you wanted to do is to escape from fatality, to live in a shit hole for your whole life, wishing for a brighter future, live Evelyn and Dylan, two young souls. One is sunshine, the other more more down to earth, bitter.

Soul searching, written with such openness and sincerity.

I don’t know how the author managed to give me goosebumps, making my heart race, just by writing on paper a story about an epic love. A love that defined time and space, something so pure, visceral, heartbreaking, and incredibly romantic.

I was addicted, consumed by their journey. Falling in love and finding someone who would complete you, and for their young age, it was something so moving because of its poignant wording, bringing feelings to life to such an emotional level. Something you can feel inside you, something that everyone wishes for, to matter to someone, to be this special one.

I might have swooned a lot, the chemistry between the characters was so palpable and intoxicating. I was utterly addicted to this scent, a powerful one that will make you feel so much, from the bad and good times, and when you close your eyes all you can feel is how much you experienced this journey.

I have to say that I needed a drink after all the heartbreak the author put me through. In so doing, it brought emotional and poetic intensity to a story that would stay in my mind for a long time.

⭐️How the Light Gets in

After an ending that left me totally heart-broken, I knew that the light would come up soon. I had high expectations because I adored the first book, and I binged read the second one right away. Here I am at almost one in the morning, writing my review because I couldn’t get them out of my head.

When I told you that their love defined time and place, I was definitely right. Evelyn, the one who would have seen the world in the light, was the one who needed to see it again, to find herself again.

And then it happened again, Evelyn and Dylan stole my freaking heart again. I won’t say that this one was less darker than the first one but saying them at another time of their lives and older didn’t change a thing.

The butterflies?? Check

The swooning?? Check

The epic love story that would make you head spin?? Check

The author didn’t make it easy, the chemistry was still there, the magic was still operating and I fell in love all over again with this older version of them. The girl who loved gardening and the boy who fell in love were still there, they just needed some time to make it grow again, to bloom.

My heart was beating so fast, I was overwhelmed. When things in life happened and even all the love you had for someone couldn’t change the way it supposed to be, like driving into two different directions, damn I wanted to cry.

Little by little, playing with my emotions (it was torture, trust me), a second chance for two people who never stopped loving each other. But was it the right time, to finally be what they supposed to be years ago? How could you be one day high school sweethearts and then the other day strangers?

I lost count about how many « Oh my… » I’ve said while reading it. Watching them being friends again with a lot of sexual tension and that magnetism that was off the charts, to this long wait of seeing them reunited consumed me.

Once again, I have to say that author found the perfect words to make the romantic in me swooned a lot, putting into words so much passion, intensity, sensuality and so much love.

My heart burst so many times…

I don’t mind a little emotional torture when I read a story like this.
