Evelynn Mayer’s life was perfect. Then one day it was laying in ruins around her shattered heart. Danny, the man who’s been her best friend, her lover, her soul mate for the past four years vanishes without a trace. Ev is lost and confused. She doesn’t know what she’s supposed to do next. The only thing she wants is to know why Danny left, but that answer isn’t coming.

Ev tries to stop asking why this happened to her and fights to pick up the pieces of her life. She knows she can count on the one person who’s been by her side since childhood, her best friend, Clark. He’s the one to catch her every time she falters. His encouragement keeps her from giving up. He teaches her not to dwell on the unanswered questions. In order to rise above the despair chipping away at her soul, Ev decides she needs distractions to focus her attention on, instead of wallowing in her despair. She fights hard to put Danny behind her and make her life resemble normal again.

When life provides her the answer, she’ll need Clark’s strength more than ever, but this may be the one time her friend can’t be strong enough for her. Things are rarely as simple as they seem. When true motivations are revealed, Ev’s fragile world is once again threatened. Mixed emotions always end with a heartache. Will her heart make the right choice; the choice only Evelynn Mayer can make.

When Life is slipping away, do you fall with it…or fight for it?

This was a Novella, but it packed the punch of a full length book. It had me intrigued from start to finish and it wasn’t until the end that I realized where the author was taking the story line. The plot flowed with no interruption from start to finish and it was a quick read that you couldn’t put down. I finished this book in one sitting and loved it! It isn’t always a start, middle, end with Novella’s but this one wrapped everything up so there were no loose ends and you didn’t feel like you were gripped out of any of the story.

The characters were so likable that you were rooting for them the whole time, especially Clark. You almost want to hate Danny, but in the end it isn’t possible and you understand the whole reason behind it all. It didn’t seem like he would be a “good” guy, but he was, and poor Evelynn, just when she starts to move on it all comes back and is worse than when it started. I really enjoyed the level of detail that the author used and the character development that she had throughout the story.

This is an author that I can’t wait to read more from, as it had all of the elements of a great story and kept my attention throughout the story. It was unpredictable and fun at the same time, as well as suspenseful. It is a book that is definitely worth putting on your TBR list.

This story has some hot scenes, some heartache, and some heartbreak, but in the end it all comes together and works. It is a great book for someone looking for a quick read that is also fulfilling at the same time. A rare Novella that captures it all.
