Title: A Love so Tragic
Author: Stevie J. Cole
Genre: Contemporary/Second Chance Romance
Release Date: February 15, 2016
We all make them. Sometimes we break them. But what happens when the promise you break haunts your dreams, when that moment of betrayal echoes within every last beat of your heart?
Love is passionate, painful, and all consuming in the most brutal yet beautiful way. How many people have you said 'I love you' to? Five, ten, maybe no one? I've said that word to two men, but only one where I felt it.
This word sums up my relationship with Nicolas: devastating, painful, depressing.
A first love that should have lasted a lifetime, but I ruined with a stupid decision. Shakespeare would refer to Nicolas as my star crossed lover, and I should know that stories such as ours always end in tragedy, but even with that, I can't not love him, even if I'm married to someone else.
I am completely on the fence with this one...I wanted so much to love it but it didn't get there for me. I know I'm in the minority here but I have to be honest.
I liked the premise of the book as second chance romances are one of my favourites and I liked the way that the author presented the story.
I found it very hard to feel anything for Peyton and the situation she found herself in, being married to one man and in love with another. There was an air of entitlement around her that I didn't like. Nicolas is the one I felt most for, being in love with a woman who is married and the whiplash he must have felt with her, not knowing from one moment to the next where he stood with her.
There was some good writing here and although it didn't rock my boat, I can kind of see why so many have liked it. I can only suggest you read it to make up your own mind.
Stevie J. Cole is a secret rock star. Sex, drugs and, oh wait, no, just sex. She’s a whore for a British accent and has an unhealthy obsession with Russell Brand. She and LP plan to elope in Vegas and breed the world’s most epic child.
