This book is not an easy read. It’s not a sunny romance filled with hearts and kittens. It is full of heartache and misery and subjects few people want to talk about, much less write about. One of the topics dealt with is Ever being in a coma. Will she ever wake up? How does Cade go on without her? Can he go on without her?
Obviously Cade is dealing with a huge amount of survivors guilt, which comes pouring out in one heartbreaking scene. Cade also refuses to give up on Ever no matter what her doctors say.
The most controversial part of the book has to be the decision Cade and Eden make. Even though both made the decision, I honestly felt like Eden bore most of the blame. By the end of the book I was really disliking her and her selfishness.
If you are looking for a light romance, this book is not for you. This is a gut wrenching, anger and ugly cry inducing book. Because of the way Wilder approaches the topics in this book it is oh so good. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.

Until the day I die, and I’ll love you in whatever world comes after this one. I love you so much, Ever. I miss you. Dear Jesus, I miss you. Come back to me.
