SYNOPSIS:

Unspoken Promises are worse than lies.
.
Morgan Kennedy and Lincoln Gates have been in love since high school. Their friends have envied their devotion to not only each other, but also the life they’ve made together. From the outside looking in, their relationship is perfect. One mirrored of fairytales. But behind the door, Morgan isn’t feeling as fulfilled as she once did. She wants more. She wants the glass slipper and the happily ever after.
 .
What Lincoln and Morgan don’t anticipate is that a horrific event is about to make them second-guess their wants.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

.

Don’t make promises you can’t keep Lincoln. Promises are worse than lies. You don’t just make me believe them, you make me hope for them.

With the way she is drinking, I can only imagine that tonight will not end well. Either she will pass out, or I will be holding her hair while she sings to the porcelain gods.

I hate that you hold my love in your hand. All those words you told me, the promises you made.

.

My Review:

 

Nothing against the quality of the writing or story – but due to my personal tastes – I struggled while reading this book as I am no fan of angst and Lincoln and Morgan’s story was 80% angst and turmoil. The characters were not the adorable and endearing couple I had found and enjoyed in book one with Jamie and Camryn, nor were they approachable or even likable much of the time. Both were stubborn, entrenched, and unyielding in their disagreement, although Morgan took it further into an icy bitterness. Written from a dual POV, Ms. Davenport tortured these poor characters with inner musing of conflict, melodrama, and discontent. However, when she periodically allowed them to connect – holy moly – atomically steamy!
