I've been many things in my life: daughter, friend, student, lover, wife…and now, widow. Getting past those labels and finding who I could be without them was the hardest thing I've ever done.
Then I became friends with Brendon Connolly.
Every time I look at him, I see a past, I see a present, and I’m afraid if I look too hard, I’ll see a future.
I've known Harmony Wynham since before she got married. Before she lost everything. I didn’t know that one day she wouldn’t be just my friend but the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
Only I don't think that can happen.
Not when every time she looks at me, she sees what she lost, and I can only see what I can't overcome.
I love her, even though I shouldn't. Somehow, we need to find a balance.
Because if we don't, walking away will be the hardest thing I've ever done—even if it's the only thing I should do.

“All the feels, 5 stars”
Harmony once knew what love was. It was this beautiful relationship that she never saw ending. Until it did. And now she’s picking up the pieces. Harmony’s at the point of acceptance and trying to move on. What she didn’t expect was her feelings for Brendon. The man who was her childhood friend, friends with her husband, and her support system. Will she risk their friendship for a relationship?
Brendon is in love with Harmony. He didn’t mean to fall for his best friend’s girl, but it happened. Not when it would have been bad though, only recently. He can’t help but want to be with her. Problem is he’s got issues of his own and he knows he doesn’t deserve her. The question is he willing to try though..
Ryan killed Shouldn’t Have You. The amount of emotion in this story is unlike any other widow book I’ve read. I love how these two had been friends forever and then everything changed. I simply cannot put into words how Shouldn’t Have You made me feel. I was pulled in until the very last page and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. If you one-click Shouldn’t Have You, you won’t regret it.
