Seconds.

That’s all it takes to have everything ripped away from you.
No one knows this better than Adam Beckerson and River Ahlers.

Each is fighting a losing battle with the death of Bobby and the fallout it causes. Adam loses a brother; River her best friend.

And while Adam finds himself fading into the bottom of a bottle, River finds the only thing she can do is run away from everything-- including Adam.

Sometimes when you lose everything, you lose yourself. The important part is finding your way back again.
 


Book #2 starts right where we left Adam and River in the first book.

DO NOT KEEP ON READING MY REVIEW IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE FIRST BOOK YET!!!!!!



Ok - Bobby and Tara have been in a car accident and Bobby died. Tara is in a coma and it doesn't look good. :/

Now it's all about how Adam and River deal with Bobby's death.
Bobby was Adam's only real family. His parents only ever cared for Bobby, but Bobby and Adam loved each other, like good brothers are supposed to. They were best friends.
Just like River was Bobby's best friend. He wanted more - he was in love with her his whole life - but River was always in love with Adam.

And now it's only River and Adam.
And they can't deal with the loss.
River tries. She tries to be there for Adam, she goes back to work and tries to start life again.
But Adam. He's not doing great. He's losing himself in alcohol, and River doesn't know how to deal with that on top of her own grief.
And then towards the middle of the book, things change - you could call it a plot-twist...
And suddenly nothing is as it was before. The chances for a HEA seem to get smaller every day....

WHAT WiLL HAPPEN TO RIVER & ADAM???
WiLL THE ALCOHOL AND GRIEF DESTROY THEIR LOVE???
WiLL THERE BE A CLiFFHANGER???





Nope - I'm not telling you ☺

OY! How long we had to wait to hear how River and Adam's story will go on...
And now here they are.
And it's so heartbreakingly sad to watch them fight through their grief.
I just wanted them to get over it faster and to go talk to a therapist and to fight more...But it's really hard. For both of them. Adam is 'dealing' with/through alcohol and not talking to River. And River, she's trying so hard to keep everyone and everything together. But she's not dealing with her own grief. She's getting lost trying to help Adam and Tara.

I loved the story and finished it in one night.
Now I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book!!!!

Where there some things I didn't like?
Hm, yeah...like in the first book, the sexiness was missing a bit. I think Cassandra is a bit afraid of writing explicit sex scenes! ☺ I would've loved to see them in the first book and I would've loved to see them here - even though it's not really appropriate here with the whole grieving mood. But still, I missed it. I didn't even know there were still books out there without sex in it. Other than christian romances!

Another thing.... this plot-twist kind of thing - am I allowed to talk about that?? Hm, not sure if it would spoil too much. Let's just say that another male character appears. And we like him a lot. But.... Adam??!?!? We love Adam and we wanted that Happily Ever After for them.
But there's still one and a half books left, so there might be hope still....

I love their story and I SOOOOO need the next book asap!!!!


FADED PERFECTION was the perfect second book in this great series. A book about two grieving people who should be there for each other, but have a really hard time with everything. Go and buy the book to see what will happen. ☺




LiNKS TO THE BOOK AND AUTHOR




BOOK #1





 STALK Cassandra ON:


Cassandra doesn't remember a time when she wasn't writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character's stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening. Besides being a writer, Cassandra is a professional photographer known for her automotive, nature and architectural shots. She is happily married to the man of her dreams and they live in the rolling hills of New England with their dogs, Bubski and Kanga.
Cassandra Giovanni is published by Show n’ot Tell Publishing based out of Connecticut, USA.
