This book will definitely put your emotions through the ringer!
There is a lot of angst in this book and maybe I'm a sucker but I truly loved this story! I know there is some controversy in other reviews and it's because of that that I had to read it myself and I'm so glad I did.
Kate is one hell of a strong woman. Some might say she's a doormat but when you deeply love someone despite their flaws, your emotions get the better of you. Her soul mate ended up marrying her best, so Katie pushed her feelings aside and was there for Rachel every step of the way. It was easy because Shane was in the marines and constantly being deployed, however, tragedy strikes and Kate puts her life aside to be there for the kids and Shane. She's an amazing person and loves those kids like they're her own. A year after Rachel's death, Kate is called upon to check on Shane and when she finds him and alcohol is involved; the lines get blurred - big time!!
Their story is a roller coaster of emotions. Shane is a dickhead a lot and I do not agree with the way he treats Kate. My belief is that he was a scared boy afraid of his emotions and the way he felt for Kate when they were younger which made him resort to go with a safer choice. Now years later, he's an angry man and is stilled scared of his emotions but after being with Kate, his walls slowly come down. After he makes a colossal mistake shattering everything, he finally sees the light and will do everything he can to fix it..... but will it be too late?!!

OMG, how do I even begin?!?!?? Well, first I loved that the story was told in both Kates and Shane's point of view so we could get into both of their heads and also figure out or try to explain why Shane was a dick throughout most of this book.😫 He cut down Kate DEEP💔 a couple times that I had a hard time even contemplating forgiving him and I think if it hadn't been for the kids Kate would have walked away a long time ago.
I felt bad for her because it seemed her best friend Rachel used and manipulated her for her own needs and Kate put up with it because she was the type of person that when you have her love and friendship she'll go above and beyond even if it's at her own expense. Kate was just a genuine person 🤗 who always put everyone first before herself.
I was happy she gave it to Shane and didn't put up with his attitude and gave right back to him, she was no doormat!!
This was a real roller coaster ride of tremendous ups and downs that's what made this book so very good and a 5 star rating for me. I just wish we had more time at the end for hea moments between Kate and Shane! 😍
5 rating for me. The dual narrations were fantastic and they did a GREAT job!!
his was some addictive story writing. I was immediately drawn into this cluster....of a mess. A man, his wife, an accident, her family, her best friend. Boy, so much and I loved the back, forth, up, down and more than anything, I loved to hate the jerk named Shane.
This book was strong on time passing and slow growth of situations. It was also the best when it came to children and family importance. I loved the angst and whilst I’m not sure Shane was worthy in the end, it was a great listen.
The narration, dual POV was strong throughout.
