four-stars

A gritty, angsty, friends-to-lovers standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis.

A childhood promise. An unbreakable bond. One tragic event that shatters everything.

It all started with the boys next door…

Devin and Ayden were my best friends. We were practically joined at the hip since age two. When we were kids, we thought we were invincible, inseparable, that nothing or no one could come between us.

But we were wrong.

Everything turned to crap our senior year of high school.

Devin was turning into a clone of his deadbeat lowlife father—fighting, getting wasted, and screwing his way through every girl in town. I’d been hiding a secret crush on him for years. Afraid to tell him how I felt in case I ruined everything. So, I kept quiet and slowly watched him self-destruct with a constant ache in my heart.

Where Devin was all brooding darkness, Ayden was the shining light. Our star quarterback with the bright future whom everyone loved. But something wasn’t right. He was so guarded, and he wouldn’t let me in.

When Devin publicly shamed me, Ayden took my side, and our awesome-threesome bond was severed. The split was devastating. The heartbreak inevitable.

Ayden and I moved on with our lives, but the pain never lessened, and Devin was never far from our thoughts.

Until it all came to a head in college, and one eventful night changed everything.

Now, I’ve lost the two people who matter more to me than life itself. Nothing will ever be the same again.

A standalone new adult contemporary romance with a happy ending. Only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content and possible triggers.

This book is such an emotional roller coaster ride. And despite hating roller coasters, I throughly enjoyed reading every single minute of it. This book is one that I would never ever go for. However, I just couldn’t resist the blurb and was a lucky fish to get an ARC and Davis did her magic. I loved the characters, the emotions, and became fully involved.

Angelina, Devin, and Ayden for an amazing trio. I love that they had a close bond together. They were platonic, lovers, and then a completely unique bond. Sometimes they reminded me of Harry, Ron, and Hermoine in terms of the close friendship. Also, is it a coindeicence that Hermoine, Harry, and Ron have HRH and the Inseparable gang have ADA? The entire friendship concept was amazing.

I really loved how the book and plot line was set. Yes, it was set over the course several years but Davis did it justice. I like that we get to see the realism of the consequences of the trio’s actions. Also, the pacing was well done. There was tons and drama, push and pull, however, all of it added more to the plot and really made me enjoy it. Plus, there are some pretty fabulous plot twists.

The entire romance in novel was the roller coaster ride. Angelina was like between who to choose and who not to choose. Sometimes it did get frustrating. But I could see what Angelina saw in both boys. I felt that Devin and Ayden put Edward and Jacob to shambles (that’s a praise). I also did not hail some of Angelina’s secrets and lies. I felt that her response was way too reckless, but if I were her I probably would have done what she did. But the plus side was that Davis showed that falling in love ain’t easy. Angelina’s (whoever she chooses) choice won’t be easy and this book demonstrates that relationships aren’t all roses and flowers. There are thorns and nails, but it is through preserving that the happy end is received. I felt that after all that Angelina went through the boy she chooses deserves his HEA.

Overall, this was a really good book. I would have given it five had there been a wee bit less drama. I felt that some parts were just a bit dragged out, however, it was perfectly fine because I overall enjoyed this book. I highly recommend people read it. But not without a box of tissues.
