Fragile by M. Leighton

Book Description:

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

Christina's BookReview

"Tonight, you got your miracle. The day I saw you, sitting with Mila in the park, I got mine."

M. Leighton weaved a beautiful story with an amazing 100% swoon-worthy guy. Hardy Bradford is the new hottie on the block!

Hardy Bradford has life all planned out. He is a great football player, had a popular beautiful girlfriend, friends, and a bright future. But Hardy soon realizes is that he doesn't want any of the above. The football scholarship, the popular girlfriend, and bright future as a football player isn't his dream. Its someone else.

His dream comes in the form of a sweet green eyed beauty. With just a glimpse of her in the park Hardy is forever changed. Months later when she walks into his classroom Hardy knows that he would do anything to get to know her. Miracle St. James is his miracle.

Miracle St. James has a different view of life. She has been through alot in life and has learned to value every moment she has. Good and Bad. She doesn't let anyone ruin her. Not a jealous upset girlfriend, not an angry father, but most of all, not a sickness. 

As Hardy starts to hang around Miracle he finally is able to stop living for others and live for himself. With Miracle he can be truly himself. Not someone his father wants him to be. Miracle understands him. Miracle can read him like a book. Miracle shows him the value of life and how to be a better person. Hardy would do anything to protect her and show her that he loves her more then anything in his life. She is his dream come true.So when Hardy is faced with the ultimate test he is dead set on protecting and saving the one person that it would hurt to lose. But will it all in vain? Will Hardy have to deal with the lose of his "Miracle"?

I cannot express how much I loved this book! Many people will compare it to A Walk to Remember and even with its similarities, this book will bury itself into your heart. It is mostly about Hardy and his journey and is told from a 3rd person point of view. You will fall in love with him and will melt with each word and each gesture of his. It might be an insta-love, and although I dislike those books, this story is so much more. This is about a guy finding the real meaning on life, not only through love but through the eyes of someone that values life and all its good and bad.

I highly recommend this book to any romance reader,any A Walk to Remember fan and any person that just wants to read a good book about love and life.
