We all make them. Sometimes we break them. But what happens when the promise you break haunts your dreams, when that moment of betrayal echoes within every last beat of your heart?
Love is passionate, painful, and all consuming in the most brutal yet beautiful way. How many people have you said 'I love you' to? Five, ten, maybe no one? I've said that word to two men, but only one where I felt it.
This word sums up my relationship with Nicolas: devastating, painful, depressing.
A first love that should have lasted a lifetime, but I ruined with a stupid decision. Nicolas is my star crossed lover, and even though Shakespeare has taught me that stories such as ours always end in tragedy, I can't not love him, even if I'm married to someone else.
A Love So Tragic by Stevie J. Cole
This book …
My pillowcase is a little damp, having cried myself to sleep after reading it.
And I just know …
This is a book that I will never forget.
My reasons for loving this may be too personal to put into a book review.
Perhaps it’s that deeply personal, extremely emotional connection that puts this in contention for top read of the year for me. (I know it’s early, but I doubt my feelings will change).
Stevie J Cole has such an eloquent way of putting words on a page. Words that captured my heart and soul. This was my first book by her, but most certainly will not be my last!
There is such a raw, brutal honesty to this story.
It’s also breathtakingly beautiful.
The characters are so wonderfully real. Hurting, hoping, second guessing and making poor choices. Each moment spent in their thoughts unveils how perfectly human they are – fragile and flawed. They made me cry and scream and swoon and then cry some more. Even when I should have hated them, I couldn’t help but love them.
I hesitate in saying that everyone should read this book – quite frankly, this story will not be for everyone. But for those with an open mind and an open heart – take the chance! I truly believe you’ll be rewarded.
