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?
If you have not put two and two together, Fragile is by M. Leighton who is also the author of the popular The Wild Ones and Down to You. I didn't realize that until I became a part of this tour!!
To be honest, I was wary of Fragile at the beginning. I was too cheesy for me to handle and I was really aggravated with Hardy, our main character but he, along with Miracle, started growing on me as I put aside my distaste for complete cheese sweetness. I gained respect for Hardy- who is stressed out because of football, college, his dad, his girlfriend and just life- when he actually started to to do something to make himself happy instead of pleasing everyone around him! What follows is a course of drama filled, good ol' teen angst of the world coming in between Miracle and Hardy because of all kinds of circumstances but Hardy is fighting hard for Miracle.
And you know I can't resist a romance. I just can't!
The book is written in 3rd person but it's centers on Hardy's thoughts. The writing is well done and I'm definitely going to bump up the authors other books on my TBR shelf! So if you're looking for angst and sweet romance, make sure you get Fragile!
p.s. Hardy Bradford had A LOT of things to live up to because the only worthy Hardy in my book is Hardy Cates♥
