Synopsis: I met Sarah Kate Erickson when I was twenty-one years old. I was lucky enough to keep her for seven years before a tragic accident stole her from me. She didn’t die, but sometimes I think it would have been easier if she had.
I lived in a haze for those four years after the accident. Catering to her every need, even though she hated the very sight of my face. I tried to hold on to her and the future that we were supposed to build together. But you can’t hold on to someone that doesn’t exist anymore.
It wasn’t until I met Jesse Addison, a barista at the local coffee shop, that I realized I didn’t just lose Sarah that tragic night, I lost myself as well. Jesse taught me how to let go of the past and learn to love again. But what happens when your past haunts your present and the woman you used to love refuses to accept the woman you can’t live without?
**Intended for readers 18+. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone.**
Jennifer’s Review: OMG! 10+ stars! This book blew me away, snatched me back and tied me down to the longest emotional roller coaster I’ve ever been on. And I loved every minute of it!
Brett is an amazing person to have endured so much. At a young age he met and married who he thought was the love of his life, but things changed. After an accident Sarah no longer wanted anything to do with him. And in the process of that accident Sarah lost her best friend.
Brett is still there for her and they’re still married. He knows that even though she no longer wants him he said “for better or for worse, until death do us part” and he believes that. He stays married to her to help her with health insurance because she can’t work. She won’t even leave the apartment.
Brett has just been going through the motions of life. If it wasn’t for his friend Caleb he probably wouldn’t be where he is. They had a falling out for a while, but their friendship held strong in the end.
Life has a way of throwing you for a loop though and that’s when Jesse Addison steps into Brett’s life. She is the complete opposite of Sarah. She’s quiet and shy where Sarah is loud and bossy. Brett thought Sarah was his forever until he got his hands on Jesse and he realized that he’d been living in a fog.
But Sarah has other plans. She may not want Brett, but she sure as hell is going to make his life hell with Jesse since he won’t give her the divorce she had so desperately wanted.
I don’t honestly think I can do justice to Aly’s book with the emotions that it brought out. I laughed, cried, awed, and shouted during different parts and by the time the book ended I had fallen in love with Brett and Jesse. Their story isn’t the typical one, but it was amazing to get to read it through the mind of Aly.
Aly! I can’t wait to read Stolen Course!
Kevin’s Review: This isn’t my normal genre, or at least it wasn’t before this weekend, but it may have just changed the course of my reading. I met this wonderful author at an event my wife put on, and after reading the synopsis of the book, I decided to give it a shot. I have NEVER read a book in less than 48 hours, until now. I literally could not put this thing down. It was an emotional roller coaster that you just can’t get off of. No matter what I say, I can do no justice to this book in a review. I put a book down that I have waited for over 2 years to come out so I could read this book. Aly Martinez, I HATE you for stealing my weekend away from me.
