After surviving severe trauma, Camden Walker has spent his life being trapped by labels. Now, at age twenty-seven, he’s fine being the gifted artist not wired for a world that’s left him scarred. All he wants is to break free and find the beauty that’s been stolen from him.
Olivia Price is used to being invisible and living in the shadow of her younger sibling. The fact that Olivia is secretly in love with her sister’s boyfriend is just another example of craving what Claire takes for granted.
But when Claire dumps Camden without a thought, Olivia can’t let go of the haunted green eyes she’s loved for so long—especially when they finally see her too.
Because maybe it takes the one not wired for this world to appreciate the one who’s been ignored by it.
And maybe it takes the only person who’s ever understood the wounded artist to show him he’s as radiant as his art.

5 “love is violet” stars and so much more.
Aly Stiles’ storytelling has an uncanny ability to get right to my heart, a wide range of emotions. Like an explosion of colors, full of meaning when every color is closely associated with certain feelings and emotions. Well it resonated with me.
It is no secret that I adore this author, each book is an experience in itself making you feel every moment, so deeply. This one is no exception, raw, scorching and showing so much love and compassion.
Olivia and Camden, two souls who seemed so different but connected on a deeper level. Camden who was living through the motions, an artist who seemed out of this world, a man who learned to survive, to cope with his pain, putting people at distance.
Someone that was perceived in a certain way mostly on his looks and I loved how Olivia could see past it but more through him, the beauty hidden within. When art could reunite hearts, an expression of emotions which was captured in a moment.
There was something so special, intense and magnificent between Olivia and Camden. She was like the only color missing in his life, a breath of fresh air in this toxic atmosphere. For once maybe someone was loving him without expecting something in return. She was the one blooming by his side, in contact with his artistic creativity to his fractured soul. Learning to understand him with real interest.
Admittedly there were some heavy moments that almost broke my heart, the struggles and suffering that the main character had to go through, a constant reminder of his past.
Traumatic events come with many forms and Camden was just trying to cope in his own way.
Surprisingly Olivia was proving him wrong every minute, reading him like no one else ever did. Being that shining and vibrant color in his darkness.
I could talk about this book for hours and I would never get tired of talking about how much it made me feel, how much it moved me, with kindness, strength and sincerity. It was like a canvas in the making upon which emotion has it meaning, place and subtle in its delivery. I felt a lot of pain for sure but the happiness resulted was just breathtaking.
