Review: Love's Suicide by Jennifer Foor

My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too na├»ve to know what that even meant. We didn’t understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I’d made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.

Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I’d ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I’d ever known.

That’s where my story should have ended.

Two years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.

The only question was…

Would I give it to him

I’m Katy Michaels and this is my story. 


My Review
Well. There is so much that went on within this story. While I didn't love it, I did have trouble putting it down. This book is jam packed full of emotion, angst, and heartbreak. From the the very first few pages I was in tears. 

This book is more than just a triangle. It is a double triangle with Katy and Brooks always two of the points. Katy.. Well Katy aggravated me to no extent. At times my heart ached for her, but her decisions never made sense to me. But I understand that she had some serious issues that she needed to work out and though I did not once agree with her decisions, I still can see that she thought she was doing what was best. 

I absolutely adored Brooks. At first there were times I thought I was going to hate him, but that didn't last very long. He was always thoughtful and a shoulder to cry on. Granted he also went about a few things wrong. Branch was another story all together. I liked him for about 4 pages... Then, well then I didn't really care for him much at all and wanted to junk punch him. But trust me, he wasn't the only one I wanted to junk punch.

Anyways, this was a good story. I wanted to like Katy more, but as soon as I did, she made a stupid choice time and time again. That being said, I can't say that had a been in her situation my decisions would have been any better. Sometimes you make choices in life and you feel like you have no way out and no other choice and then you end of doing something even worse. Katy needed more guidance in her life and I understand that impacted her decisions. Anyways this book at its core is about following your heart and soulmates. Sometimes the road to happily ever after is bumpy and full of sharp curves. But the road always leads you home. This story illustrates just that.
