I should have died.

I should have been forgotten.

But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.

Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.

Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.

Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.

Used to be.

And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.

I’m told that’s me.

But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place.

A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.

I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?

I knew that Asher was going to be break me. I made sure I reread Torn before I started Asher and Torn sets you up for the absolute heartbreak in Asher. Asher is the love story of Asher and Ember Valentine. They are a couple who have been together since their teens and who have a daughter. However, tragedy struck and Asher and Ember must rebuild their love from the beginning. This isn’t a second chance love story but rather one of discovery and the power of love and connection between two people. It broke my heart over and over again and by the end, it was a patchwork heart but one that was stronger than ever, just like Asher and Ember. I honestly went through an entire box of tissues while reading this book and cried from beginning to end. It was simply a beautiful love story.

“She also knows that the only time I ever truly sleep is when I’ve got my wife in my arms, when I can escape to that place where we’re together and none of this is real.”

Asher by Carian Cole, Chapter One

“It breaks my heart that Ember’s soul has lost its song”

Asher by Carian Cole, Chapter Fifteen

“I don’t think it’s gone, Asher. That kind of love can never be gone. It’s cracked in a lot of places. But I think it’s still there.”

Asher by Carian Cole, Chapter Twenty-Five

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
