Left or right.

It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all.

If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back.

If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me.

I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn't know I had.

And I love them both.

My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself.

The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too.

Left or right.

All I have to do is take a breath and turn.

“Maybe that was where our love was born….. between the lines of our scars" 

OMG!! I feel like my heart has been ripped out, stomped on, and then tried to be resuscitated! I have no clue what the hell I’m feeling right now and honestly, I just need a damn drink. Vodka on the rocks preferably because what I went through while reading this book? My nerves are messed the hell up! 

After reading the final chapter in “What He Doesn't know” I thought for sure that nothing could get any worse than that one final word that I read. My brain accepted it for what it was but my heart, was torn into pieces. But still, I got over it because deep down, I KNEW that in this book, it was going to be made for redemption and also new beginnings and I was more than ok with that. Then I started reading and do you know what I got? A fucking drinking problem that’s what!! 

I’m throwing back shots, making under the table deals with the devil himself, and torn between anger, frustration, joy, sadness, love and acceptance. This was a serious emotional rollercoaster ride for me and as I sit here and write this review, I’m happy that I got through it, but a huge part of me is sad that it’s over. I’ve always been a big fan of being caught in an emotional turmoil when it came to these kind of stories because they bring out a different side of you and whether you want to admit it or not, you secretly love that. You get off on the thrill, you bask in the drama, and you suffer with the loss because those feelings that you have? It showed that you FELT EVERYTHING.

If you’ve read What He Doesn’t Know, then you’re familiar with the characters of Charlie, Reese, and Cameron and what they mean to each other. This was a very complicated relationship between three people who loved each other differently, but fiercely in their own right. Some were silent, and some were louder than words but it was there. Loving two people at the same time is not an easy thing but having to destroy another person's happiness and making a decision to choose one over the other, that is what's to going to tear you apart. In this story, in order to achieve happiness, someone has to get hurt. 

I cannot say how much I adore this author's writing and the emotions she manages to capture in just one simple page. During these characters darkest moments, I truly felt as if I was in that room with them. Every tear and heartbreak, I felt it as if it was my own and that is something that I don’t feel very often. Now as much as I felt those things, I also felt  anger and frustration as well. COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY!!! I wanted to shake the hell out of these people and bang their heads together for not saying what needed to be said at the time. But despite that, and being disappointed with the chosen one, this was one hell of a duet and I’m so glad that I got to experience this. 

If you’re looking for a emotionally angst driven read, then this one is for you.
