About BREAKING WITHOUT YOU
Available April 16, 2019
From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.
I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.
I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she'd believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.
Where oh where do I begin??? Carrie Ann Ryan takes us on a journey of hurt, loss, devastation, reconnection, acceptance, and forgiveness in this amazing start to the Fractured Connections Series. I for one was in tears numerous times while reading this book and I would venture to guess that most readers were as well.
This book deals with the suicide of Voilet's best friend, Allison, it was done off page so we don't witness the downward path that drove her there but what we do see is the devastation left behind. Violet is having an extremely hard time dealing with the fact that she didn't see her friend was in trouble and needed help. This is something that all loved ones that are left behind have to come to terms with and believe me when I tell you it isn't easy.
As if things weren't hard enough for Violet to handle in walks her ex, Cameron, who just up and left town years earlier without a word and left her heartbroken. Cameron and his brothers are trying to save the bar their adoptive father left to them. I really enjoyed this part and look forward to seeing more of the brothers interactions because there was so much animosity with Cameron leaving his brothers behind years earlier but he's back now and he is hoping to make amends with everyone he hurt, but they have to meet him halfway too and that proves to be more difficult for some than others.
Carrie Ann Ryan is an author that I always recommend and this book is no different, my one suggestion would be to have some tissues nearby because you will need them. Happy Reading!!!
