Lauren St. James has been married to her husband Cooper for two years after dating him for three years. Prior to her relationship with Cooper, Lauren was a victim of an emotionally abusive relationship that still haunts and taunts her everyday. Lauren just wants everything to go back to being the way it was before she ever got hurt by Jason Garcia, the man who belittled her and made her feel like she was worthless and would never amount to anything.
Will Lauren finally see herself through Cooper’s loving eyes? Or will the past consume her and make her run from her present?
Here we go!
I just want to start by saying, I would have read this as an entire novel instead of simply a fifty-page novelette. It was that good.
This book really resonated with me because I understand being in a relationship similar to Lauren’s before she met Cooper. In fact, I understood Lauren so much that everything she discussed, from feeling like no one would ever truly love her to feeling pretty worthless, I understood because I had been there. Even though my relationship had been slightly different from her and Jason’s emotionally destructive one, I understood it. I knew Lauren’s pain.
And I was glad she had been able to find someone who understood her pain. Someone who would be there to always help her.
Sometimes I fear I won’t find someone like that myself. It’s a truly scary thing to think no one will ever love you. But enough about me. Back to the story.
Lauren had been in an emotionally abusive relationship with a guy named Jason for years. It wasn’t a relationship either should have been in. When Lauren met Cooper and began falling for him, she began to wonder if Jason had ever really even loved her. We’re not told too much about Jason and Lauren’s relationship, but we did see what Lauren went through when she began to recede into her memories. Anxiety attacks would kick in, but Cooper was always there to pull her out and help her. He tried what he could to keep her in the here and now. Same for Lauren with Cooper. In a way, they’re each other’s angels. They keep each other leveled.
Can I have my own Cooper? I want a guy who understands and loves me as he does Lauren.
I received a free copy of this and volunteered to review it. Thank you so much again, Aimee!
