From USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen comes a passion- and angst-charged story about a woman caught between a secure relationship and a once-in-a-lifetime spark with her muse.
They say first loves are oftentimes the end of one’s innocence.
Those words couldn’t ring truer for Everlynne Lawson, whose first brush with romance came with a heartbreak … and the thing that seems to follow her everywhere she goes. Death.
After a great tragedy, Everlynne loses all she cares about—her dreams, her family, and her soulmate, Joe.
Guilt-ridden, Everlynne decides to isolate herself in Salem, Massachusetts. A shell of the woman she once was, she takes her days one at a time, careful not to allow herself the joy she believes others in her life were robbed of. But when the mysterious, handsome Dominic storms into her life, it becomes more difficult to stay in solitude. Dominic is different: adventurous, joyous, with lust for life and a passion to make her his.
Everlynne is on the cusp of reinventing herself once again when the old wounds of her past are resurrected, rawer than ever. There is nothing worse than being in love with two men.
Especially when one of them hates you.
4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
This was very a beautiful and unconventional love story.
It was a very engaging story from beginning to end and I can tell you that this is very different from what this author normally writes and I love that she took the leap of faith with writing this story.
To think that Ever (h) fell in love with two men at different times but eventually would intertwine in her current life. She could never forget her first love, he was always in the back of her mind but she screwed up big time and always wondered. When she meets the current beau, she ends up in a heap of turmoil when her old flame comes back into her life and the twists that come along after this will leave you stunned and totally shocked.
I am putting this on top of my reads because it was so different from what I've read from this author and she totally took me by surprise and I LOVED THAT!
