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 book started out like a page out of my life but then it took a very interesting twist. For a novella it was very well written and I didn't feel like it was too short at all. I love Nickie's books and haven't found one that I truly couldn't get into. This book is no different.
My favorite character is Brandon because he absolutely reminds me of my best friend in life. He was always there to pull you through the tough times in life. He was an incredibly well rounded and thought out character.
As for the other characters I wasn't a huge fan. I wanted to beat the crap out of them a lot of the time because well they just had moments where they were utterly stupid.
Needless to say I would recommend this novella as well as all of Nickie's other books and novellas to anybody looking for a good book.
4 out of 5 stars
