Jack and I had everything. Then, in one brutal instant, the universe tilted on its side, discarding us into black nothingness.
Now, I have a cocky a**hole for a husband.
The only way we communicate anymore is when we’re fighting or f**king.
With nothing left to lose, I write Jack a goodbye letter and head for Portland, where I quickly meet a neighbor who helps me find a job.
My new neighbor—hot, tattooed ex-soldier Isaac Evans—is complicated. Nevertheless, we form a fast friendship, bonding over our mutual desire to create something beautiful from the wreckage of our lives.
But despite the distance between us, Jack and I are still trying to make things work—fighting and f**king dirtier than ever. And he doesn’t appreciate my new friendship with Isaac. Not one f**king bit.
What the actual fuck.
This book was fucking intense.
I was not expecting to be pulled into the story so completely and quickly. The first chapter I was kind of like, okay.. this is fine. A little dirty for no reason, a lot of internal monologue that was going to get boring quick. But then plot bitch-slapped me and I was absolutely hooked.
I read a lot of Cassia’s books a few years ago, but this was by-far the best thing I have read by her. I seriously don’t want to give any spoilers.. but this book is quick, it’s dramatic, intense, sad and absolutely wonderful.
I loved every single one of the characters, even Jack, as cocky and rude as he is. I loved Isaac and I honestly don’t know which one of them I ship with Laurel. Isaac is definitely the sweeter one, with more issues than anything, though. I don’t know yet.
100% I will be reading the rest of this series. I’m counting down the days until I can get my hands on the rest of them.
This year is getting off to an absolutely fantastic start.
Until next time,
