I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Everly is lying to me about my sister’s death. I don’t know what she’s hiding, but I’ve made it my mission to break her down until I know every last detail. Our broken pieces will match, and she’ll know the soul-crushing agony I feel when I look at her. I hate that I want her. Unequivocally, the need I feel for her is stronger than I’ll ever be. If she thinks she isn’t still mine, she’s lying to herself, too.
She used to look at me like I was everything to her.
She’ll look at me that way again.
I can promise you that.
My best friend is dead, and I can’t tell anyone her secret. Patrick thinks I’m protecting myself. But really, I’m protecting him. He’s in pain, and knowing I’m the reason is utter torture. The truth will cut him far deeper than losing whatever it is we had. I’ll give him what he needs, even if it means he’ll hate me forever.
He wants to break me.
He’s too late.
My world shattered the day I chose to lie to him.
Includes a happily ever after, but main plot points continue on to the next book in the series. Each book features a new couple in The Darlington Elite world. This book discusses adult themes and is suitable for 18+ readers.
The story of Patrick and Everly was an interesting read. It had so much drama. So much angst and also gentleness and love.
But… I was a bit upset when the story ended because it left me hanging and I needed to know what was going to happen next.
I can’t wait for the next installment of this series and hopefully, we’ll learn what happened when this book ended…
