When Carter is killed in combat, he leaves behind his heartbroken wife, Avery, and his shattered best friend, Remy. Naturally, these two wounded souls gravitate together, irresistibly drawn by the loss of the one they both loved, as well as their deep friendship with each other. But when that friendship starts to turn into something more, new problems arise.
Will Avery be able to move on after losing the love of her life?
Will Remy be able to fill the void left by the loss of his best friend? Or will this new chance at love cost them all they have left?
I am sure my heart was ripped out of my chest. It got put back in by Jude. Carter was deployed only two days after his wedding to Avery. Carter and Remmie and Avery were best of friends. They shared a strong bond. When Carter was shot, he asked Remmie to take care of Avery, then died in his arms. Such a heartwarming story. Narration was great!

Highly Recommend! I've volunteered to review this for the author. I love to read Jude Ouvrard stories. I had the audio version of this one. I totally fell in love with this story. It made me cry, but in the end it was a great. This story is abut Carter, Avery and Remy. Carter and Avery were the perfect couple. What will happen to you if you lost your loved one? Can you make it through it without some form of support and love? Remy had always loved Avery but he wasn't about to get in the way of his best friend Carter. Remy is so sweet. This story has love, friendship, and heartbreak in this story was amazingly written. I found that Reagan West did an wonderful job with bring each charterer out even more. I felt like I was there with them every chapters. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this one! Keep up the amazing work Jude!! Can't see what else you will bring to us in the future.
This is a beautiful book of lost love and finding of love. I cried and laughed with this book, amazing. Simply loved the narrator, she did an awesome job. So recommended this book.
Ovurard creates an intriguing plot to her story.
When the story begins, we discover that Avery (beautiful female) has left the armed forces after an explosion nearly killed her and killed many of her group. The man she is about to marry, Carter, has to return to duty 3 days after their marriage.
It breaks her heart, but as a prior soldier, she understands. Only the worst possible situation unfolds. Two months from returning home, Carter is killed by the enemy.
Prepare to cry. After luring you in to love both Avery and Carter, Carter is killed by an enemy militant.
And his best friend, Remy, is soon seriously injured as well. When they get Remy back to stateside, Avery is there to help and heal him. And given how close she was to Remy for ten years of her life, falling in love wasn’t hard. What was hard is not feeling guilty for falling in love so soon after Carter’s death.
This was not just a problem for Avery. It was also a problem for Remy as well.
The twists and turns in this story kept me riveted. I could not stop listening to the story. Will they get past their history and guilt? Or will they break apart? You’ll get no spoilers from me.
A fabulous story from beginning to end. The narration was 5 star, the storyline was 5 star which means, overall it is a 5
This book keeps you wanting more. The connection to real life events that affect all of our, and our need for love rings through as the story unfolds for Avery. Each of us have desires, needs, and fears in our life, Avery’s story really shows us resilience and the art of always moving forward, based in a military realm. Without any spoilers, this is for sure not one to miss!!
What a listen this story is! This is my second Jude Ouvrard listen and it definitely will not be my last. If you are looking for a book that will let you experience every emotion, it's for you. Carter, Remy and Avery all share a history. Avery and Carter are married and immediately following their wedding, Carter is deployed. When he is killed in action, the relationship between Remy and Avery is forever changed. Carter's death is expressed so well by Ouvrard, you will feel the incredible loss by both characters and how they learn to cope. There is some delving into PTSD too, such a tragic result of each of these soldiers saw. I love the way the story progresses, with the feelings of survivor's guilt and love, depression, fear and happiness. Remy and Avery will steal your hearts and let you take their paths to finding that love shows up whenever it is right, time will help heal your heart and you can find that second chance at getting their happily ever after.
Reagan West is an amazing narrator. I love the warmth that her voice extends through her performance, giving each character their own voice. She is top notch and a pleasure to listen to.
