What do you do when the love of your life forgets?

Not the good times.

Not the love.

Not the passion.

But the pain and heartbreak and betrayal.

He doesn’t remember that he broke my heart.

But I do.

He doesn’t remember the darkest parts of our marriage.

He doesn’t remember that six months ago, I said goodbye.

What do you do when the love of your life remembers your marriage but not your divorce?

My Review

I may have finished this book, but I can most certainly assure you…This book is NOT finished with me! My heart y’all! I felt like I was on a speedway of feels with this one. QB Tyler put on her cute little racing suit, hopped in the driver’s seat and let it rip over and over again around the track and right over my poor little heart. But, not to worry as always my beautiful crafty queen pieced my heart back together better than ever by the end. But… She took me for one hell of a ride first! While this book is fantastic and wonderful and  all you are looking for in your “fantasy world you read to get away to”. It is also relatable to real life. So many people have traveled the same road as our precious Bennett and Olivia and been in some of the very situations that let to the decline in their marriage. I myself have been through some of these very situations. QB was so wonderful in the way she handles the sensitive nature of some of the topics this book deals with. From someone who has dealt with these things personally I can say she handled this with the utmost respect and sensitivity while staying true to her book. I just Love her!!

“You’re not the only one broken, Olivia”

 Now, everyone’s journey is a little different , but just as personal and deep as this one was. This story was told in alternating POV’s. The timeline takes place in current times but also going from the present time back to the past times in their nine year relationship. It’s so well written that it flows flawlessly between the time hops. That’s a testament to how awesome a writer QB is. I have seen authors jump times and it does not work out well AT ALL! This is not an issue for QB Tyler at all as this book seamlessly goes from past to present. 

Bennett and Olivia are FIRE! They have been together for 9 years. They met when Olivia was in college studying for finals. They fall hard and they fall fast. They are the most important people in each other’s lives and are so full of passion. They have the type of love and marriage people dream about and are envious of. For a long time , everything is absolutely perfect.

 But their Plans and dreams don’t quite go how they had envisioned and some real life , real devastating things begin to happen.  How they respond to those events sets off a heartbreaking chain of reactions and consequences. 

Olivia is this vibrant woman of color. She’s successful and sassy and smart. From the moment Bennett first saw her he knew she was it for him, she was unlike anyone he’d ever met.Gah! The love this man has for this woman, y’all! They are So.Freakin.Hot!

On the outside, Bennett is this  GQ model looking man. I’m talking total office wet dream, alpha AF tattooed god underneath his business suit and can wear the hell out a pair of dark jeans and a white t-shirt, kinda fine! But he’s a good man, who loves his wife, is an amazing friend, and devoted son. Who made a huge horrible mistake. That he doesn’t remember making. 

Where Our Story Really Begins…

Olivia is struggling with forgiving Bennett and herself. Bennett can’t forgive himself because he doesn’t remember what he did! She’s dealing with her own insecurities for things. But She IS Bennett’s world, and he still IS hers too. She has been since the moment he met her and probably always will be. This book is tough. You feel the devastation on ALL sides. For them both. It’s like this never ending “cluster F” of hurt inflicted to each other by each other. Neither meant to, it just happened. Where do they go from there though? What happens when they take two steps forward only to take three steps back? 

Do not miss this book. Pick it up ASAP! It’s a stand-alone. Gah! Such an amazing one too !This must read book will make you cry, it will make you laugh, it will break your heart, but it will heal your heart too! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️⭐- I FREAKIN LOVE MY GIRL QB! I was barely a few pages in an I knew this book was going to break me. With that said…Being the QB super fan I am I knew she would fix it up by the end, and she did. She gave me everything I could possibly want and more. Really, I couldn’t have loved this book any more. Prepare for an epic Book Hangover for days, Heartbreak throughout, and a determined couple willing to cut, kick, scratch and claw their way to their Happy Ending!
