I should have died.
I should have been forgotten.
But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.
Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.
Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.
Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.
Used to be.
And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.
I’m told that’s me.
But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place.
A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.
I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?
Speechless. Completely and utterly speechless. Asher is a masterpiece. The way the words weave their way into your soul is magical. I one hundred and ten percent suggest you go and read the other books in this series and at least the first book in her other series. It will give you so much back story.
The plot. Oh the plot. This author took the basic plot of my favorite book of hers and spun it in a way that shocked me. Oh the tortured souls on this book. If you want an emotional ride, this book has you covered.
The characters are amazing. I love that we get more of Asher while questions about the mysterious Ember are answered. I also loved the way the author connected with the story she was writing. I could tell that these were more than just words to her.
The heat in this book is perfect. The story is developed very well. The author stays true to the characters and gives us a heart pounding, page turning story. I cannot wait to see where she goes next.
Ratings Plot: 5/5 Characters: 5/5 Heat: 5/5 Writing style: 5/5 Overall: 5/5
