He was my world, my whole life. My reason for breathing. I had a perfect marriage, a baby on the way, and I felt fulfilled—almost invincible.
Until the day life hit, leaving me broken, vulnerable, and alone.
She was my life. My ray of hope on the cloudiest day. With her, I thought I had the ultimate safety. A love that would never hurt or betray me. I gave her my heart, my body, and my soul.
Until she broke me, destroying every dream and illusion I had about life, love, and marriage.
In our grief, we made a mistake. A mistake I’m not sure we can come back from
WOW THIS BOOK…
When I started this book I just knew that it was going to have me hooked by the balls and it would be a book that really gets me thinking. The only moment over the weekend this book wasn’t on my mind was when I was drunk lol.
This book had me in tears by the first paragraph and the first half of the book I was pretty much the same, tears flowing down my checks as I read a book that could happen to any of us and that’s what I loved about it, it was heart breaking but so real. Kylie and Cooper were so so in love and had the perfect life. Then the worst possible thing happened to them and their lives fell apart.
I sat back and really thought about what happened to them and how this happens in real life, people handle grief in different ways that at times it can tear your life apart and have you holding on to your sanity by your fingertips. Even when you know what you are doing is wrong, even when you know you should fight you just can’t and then it comes to a point where you just can’t stop even if you want to.
The first half of the book was Kylies POV and it was pretty hard to read, being a woman, a mother the book touched home. Thankfully I have never been where Kylie has been but again just like Arsen could I really say that it would never happen and I wouldn’t react the same way. The heart breaking thing was no matter what they said and what they did the love was pouring through the page. It’s crazy and scary to think that love on its own can’t keep you with the person that you thought you would spend your life with. Kylie wanted nothing more to be with Cooper but her mistakes that she made, caused him to be a million miles away even though he was in the same bed.
I also fell for Grayson and loved the support he gave to Kylie when Cooper couldn’t and I could see the train wreak happening and sort of wanting it to happen, but that was when I thought there was no hope.
Then came part two Coopers POV and I was ready to fight alongside Cooper for his girl, the person he was made for and when you read that this beautiful man is actually not just beautiful on the outside but deeply beautiful on the inside, I was praying that he could get his life make and fight for not only what Kylie deserved but what Cooper deserved too. The way he watched his life fall apart was horrible but finding out what really happened to him in those two years was horrific and it broke my heart.
I actually really cried when I realised that communication between man and wife could have stopped this heart break from happening and again this is something you see all the time, not just in our own relationships but in others too. We become scared or we take what we have for granted when really if we just spoke from the heart life could be different.
I’m so fucking mad that our lives were stolen from us by my immature decisions
Then came the smiles the love just flew out of the book and I just couldn’t get enough of all this love and how second chances can become just as beautiful if not more beautiful. With that ending it was 110% more amazing than the first chance. Cooper was the man that we all knew he could be and the only sad part for me was Grayson but I know and have faith that he will be just fine.
This book rocked my world, but it also made me realise that we as humans should never judge what other people are doing and more importantly why they are doing it. People on the outside just didn’t think they were meant to be, but it was in fact they should never of let go. I’m just thankful through all that pain all that hatred Kylie and Cooper were still holding on by their fingertips and they actually had never let go.
This book was 10 STARS, I just loved everything about it, and even all the tears were worth the ending.
Well done Angie can’t wait for the next book
