Ten Below Zero – Whitney Barbetti

“In here,” he said, pushing on the skin above my heart, “you’re ten below zero. And you’re closer to death than I am.”

My name is Parker. My body is marked with scars from an attack I don’t remember. I don’t want to remember. I choose to live my life by observation, not through experience. While people are laughing and kissing and connecting, I’m in the corner. Watching them live. I’m indifferent to everything, everyone. The only emotion I feel with any kind of depth is annoyance, and I feel it often.

A text message sent to the wrong number proves to be my undoing.

His name is Everett, but I call him rude. He’s pushy, he’s arrogant, he crowds my personal space, and worst of all: he makes me feel.

He chooses to wear all black, all the time, as if he’s waiting to attend a funeral. Probably because he is.

Everett is dying. And he’s spending his final days living, truly living. In doing so, he’s forcing me to feel, to heal. To come face to face with the demons I suppressed in my memory.

He hurts me, he fulfills me, he completes me. And still, he’s dying.

First im going to say stick with this book, it is a slow burn, but it will shred your heart and fix the broken pieces.
I wasnt sure what to expect when i started reading this book its the first for me from this author but im so glad i read it, the story was unique not the norm for a romance book giving it an edge over others.
I really liked the characters and there interactions with each other and how the story was mainly focused on Everett and Parker.
This book is hard to review as i dont want to give too much of the story away, Ten Below Zero will make you look at the world differently, make you want to cling on to life and live it to the fullest.
Heart achingly beautiful story.
