There is no way we can still love and cherish one and other.
When I married Theo Walsh, the rough, bearded townie who worked construction on my family’s summer house, I’d found my happily ever after.
That was before the fighting.
Before the jealousy.
Before the infertility.
We’ll be divorced long before death does us part.
But to secure my place in the family dynasty, there is just one more hoop I have to jump through. And I need him to do it.
Faking the marriage we once thrived in will gut me.
Especially with the secret I’m carrying.
I would have sacrificed for her until the end of time.
I’d given it all up to marry her. That’s how much I loved Imogen Weston, the daughter to one of the world’s richest families.
From the day we met, I’d done nothing but try to live up to the man she expected to be with. And now, I was done.
Sure, I’d complete this one final ask of hers, even if it destroyed me.
But I’ve made her promise the one thing that might save me. She swore that after she got everything she ever wanted, she wouldn’t look back.
I made my wife vow to leave me forever.
This book was an amazing departure from Aarons’ normal books. I love her YA writings, but this book was on another level. It was gritty and raw and damn near painful in its brutal honesty. So, I loved it. I loved how she let each character’s emotions and thoughts bleed from the pages. You can feel their indecision, sacrifices, love, and sense of obligation.
They are all caught in the crosshairs of responsibility, family, and expectations. What’s funny is that many times these expectations are self-perceived, which impact familial relationships, roles, and responsibilities. The way Aarons tied it all together with perfect timing and tortured hearts made the books so stand out.
What I learned from Imogen, Theo, and Aarons is that self-sacrifice without communication will always lead to unhappiness and bumps in the road. If only we can listen to our hearts and be honest with ourselves before embarking upon major decisions.
Aarons kept me glued to this book and I couldn’t wait to see where this story would go. Gah, I can’t wait until she writes her next book!!
