I’ve made mistakes. Some of those mistakes have ruined lives, including my own.
Because of this, my past is something I have kept to myself, so when I found a woman who also wanted her past to remain hidden, it felt like the universe was pushing us together.
It turns out the universe had nothing to do with that.
If a person’s past doesn’t exist, the present may not unravel the way it should.
I found out the hard way, when I learned that my wife is not who I thought she was…living with a past I should know about. Her continuous self-destructive behaviors let me know she clearly has a plan—possibly one I never should have been a part of. I keep trying to save her, but she’s making it hard.
Now, both of our pasts have simultaneously rolled into the spotlight—colliding head-on, and causing the present to come crashing down on top of us.
I learned that since our pasts are part of who we are, they will always be the foundation of our present and our future.
The question I have is, will either of us walk away in one piece?
AJ Cole has stolen my heart. That’s right ladies, meet your next book boyfriend. Be ready to swoon and cry and you will soon see what I mean. I may also have a small girl crush on Cammy, although honestly it was a love/hate relationship for a long time, I sided with AJ for the most part throughout this story.
“….part of me has been stolen.”
We also have Tori, oh this woman was enough to drive me nuts. It was hard for me to connect with her, but it sure was easy to loathe her. I just didn’t understand her at all and AJ was a saint for dealing with her all along. He was such a great father, uncle, brother, son…just all around great guy and he didn’t deserve the hand that he was dealt.
“My life has been full of holes. My heart was missing, and I didn’t know if I’d ever find it again.”
My heart broke over and over again throughout A Missing Heart. I really didn’t expect it to hit me that hard. Following AJ and Cammy in the past and then that past crashing head on with the present was intense. But I promise that in the end your heart will heal and your questions will be answered. Shari Ryan did a great job of telling this story, she did AJ justice and it was better than I could ever have expected.
“Today is my best day,” she mutters against my mouth. “You said that yesterday,” I remind her. “Tomorrow will be even better,” she says.
