Fragile by M. Leighton

Goodreads Summary:

Her heart, as delicate as glass. His love, as strong as steel. Can either survive life and death? 

Hardy Bradford is an eighteen year old football phenomenon who has the girl, the school, the town and the future in the palm of his hand. His life is all mapped out for him, right down to who he’ll marry and how he’ll become a professional football player. It doesn't seem to matter that Hardy would’ve chosen a much different life if it was up to him. But it's not. At least not until his Miracle comes along. 

The first time Hardy laid eyes on Miracle St. James, he didn’t know who she was, but he knew she was something different and that he’d never get her out of his head. And he didn’t. Now, months later, Hardy’s world is turned upside down when Miracle shows up in his class, stealing his heart and forever changing the course of his life. 

Miracle’s sick. Very sick. And Hardy might be losing the only thing in his life that has ever mattered. How much is too much to sacrifice for the one you love? For just a little more time? For just one more chance? Can Hardy be the hero Miracle needs? Or is it Hardy that needs saving?

My Review:
The song that came on Pandora while I am typing this is so perfect, Kiss the Rain by Yiruma on piano. It is perfect for this book haha. Just a coincidence I suppose but, worth noting. This book was probably one of the sweetest love stories I have ever read. It was from Hardy's point of view which was refreshing. I don't read very many books that are so sweet and romantic that are in a guys point of view. There were a few pages that were from Miracle's point of view as well. I read this book in about 6 hours, in mostly one sitting. I couldn't put it down. Hardy's life sounds like the typical football players. Dating the hot cheerleader with the seemingly "perfect family." He is troubled though and not as happy as he could be. That's when he meets Miracle. 

Their relationship is hard to explain. You must read this book to get the full extent of it. I can only describe it in words. It is sweet, beautiful, and full of love. The kind of love and sacrifice that we wish for every day. The kind of relationship that can change the course of your life completely, change your hopes and dreams. That is the best way to describe it I think without bursting into song. Could you risk everything for the one you love?

The ending is perfect. I couldn't have seen it going any differently at all. Hardy is the kind of man all women hope to find and the kind of son we want our sons to be. Pick up this book people. It left me in tears.
