Everything I ever learned about fairy-tales was a fucking lie… Four years ago, my life was everything I wanted it to be: I had everything I wanted, everything I needed, in my best friend and newly wedded husband—Tyler.
Yet, hours after we said “I do,” I lost him. Forever…
The dreams we’d shared, the future we’d planned—all of our hopes and desires, were ripped away in mere seconds. And now, four years later, my life still feels like a hopeless eternity.
So, I guess it’s quite fitting that the last person I want to hear from is currently standing at my front door. He wants to tell me the truth about that night, he wants to be my new knight in shining armor, but the thing is…
He was the best man.
Wow … this book needs to come with a warning. Need tissues and expect your heart to be ripped out. When I started reading this – I’ll be honest, I started to think I’ve read this before with Stephanie Smith’s Wherever you will go. Happily married one minute – devastated by their husband’s death the next. That’s where the comparisons stop though.
Unlike Stephanie’s book, Everly didn’t know about a double life her husband was leading. That is a wonderfully horrible theme throughout. She’s been mourning a man who kept terrible secrets from her. Everly died too when Tyler was murdered.
This is a painful tale of being alive but not living. The way Alice has written a tragic story of a woman who is grieving for living. I felt angry on Evely’s behalf when she’s finally told the truth about Tyler’s death. Others knew but didn’t tell her the truth.
I am a huge fan of Tribue’s Contractual and have faith in her story telling. This is a second chance at life and love story. There is a huge amount of growth from the heroine in this book. She was certainly on struggle street and lost. Lost when all her hopes and dreams were snatched away from her but hindsight is a beautiful thing.
She would’ve never had those hopes and dreams with Tyler. As much as she hates Luca – he is the man that gives her the happy ending of her dreams.
I will certainly tread more wearily though. I didn’t expect my heart to be ripped out like it was in this story.
