The Story of Us by Tara Sivec

Guys. She did it again.

Tara ripped me apart with this perfect romance. Second chance romances just do something for me. They bring such angst and hope with them. Annnnd we all know I an a glutton for angst. ALL THE ANGST. We dive in with Eli and let me let you in on a secret, you are going to fall absolutely in love with him. He is in hell and you will want to love him and help heal him. But back to the heart string pulling. This is one of those books that completely just guts you and then puts the pieces back together one word at a time. I won't review the plot because the synopsis is perfection for this book. Read it. then buy the book and read that.



From USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec comes an emotional, breathtakingly romantic new book about the power of first love and the promise of second chances. How much can a man take before he breaks? 1,843 days. That's how long I survived in that hellhole. They tried to break me, but I resisted. And I owe it all to the memory of warm summer nights, the scent of peaches, and the one woman who loved me more than I ever deserved to be loved. Now, I'll do anything to get back to her. Only Shelby Eubanks isn't the girl I left behind all those years ago. She's someone else, a stranger. My Shelby-my little green-eyed firecracker-would never give up her dreams, would never disappear into her mother's ambitions. But I won't give up on her. On us. I may be broken, and scarred, and not the man I used to be, but I will do whatever it takes to remind her of the story of us.
