Review Tour: All We Were by Elisabeth Grace and Michelle Lynn

Will I ever stop hurting the one person who’s never hurt me?

I’ve done things I can never undo.

No matter how much I wish I could, sometimes the wounds I inflict are too deep, too catastrophic, too septic to heal.

As I look into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved I know I’ve gone too far. I’ve finally crossed the line.

Even if he knew my reason for doing this, he’d never forgive me.

He always puts my needs before his own.

Now it’s my turn to protect him.

None of that matters though because the betrayal and disgust in his eyes comes from deep within his soul. There’s no coming back from this.

He will forever be tormented by what he’s seen, and he will never forgive me.

The last fragment of my heart to hold out hope that we’d share a future, withers and dies.

Review by Jen Skewes

This book toyed with my emotions, pulled on my heart strings and left me with a major book hangover.  From the moment I read the prologue and did not want to put this book down.  I was captured and sucked in from the very start.  There is angst, heartache,  and a lot of raw and intense moments.  And it was fantastic, flawlessly written and heartbreakingly beautiful and I cannot wait for more. 

Lilah and jimmy have been best friends since they were kids.  They grew up dirt poor in a small town in the mountains. They had a childhood that no one would ever wish for.  They have demons that will haunt them for a long time.  They did things that they are not proud of but had to in order to survive.  

Lilah and jimmy made it out of that small town and jimmy is now a big up and coming movie star while Lilah is a model.  Those demons I mentioned, well let’s just say that they both handle them differently.  Maybe Jimmy is able to keep them in the past while Lilah deals with them in another way.  A way that causes Jimmy to constantly clean up her messes and in the process she is hurting the one person who this world who loves her and who means the most to her.  Will they get to a point where Jimmy says enough is enough?  And if so what will that mean for their relationship?  It’s not way to walk away from the one person you have loved your whole life.  But sometimes it’s her to stay.  

Did I make you think? Was I a little vague?  Of course I was.  I don’t want to give anything away.  Go in completely blind and hang on for the ride. 

This books deals with delicate topics and was written in a way that was honest.  It depicts so much, the raw emotions, the hurt, the intensity, the high and lows and the pain. Lilah and Jimmy have a very intense relationship.  they depend on each other, love each other, have an undeniable chemistry,  but what they have can be very dark at times.  there is no doubt in my mind that one they are both able to truly put the past behind them and fight their demons that they will be perfect together.  I am rooting for them.  I already feel that no matter what they have been through together, no matter how much pain and hurt they have experienced, these two love each other with everything they have.  Is it enough?  I will patiently waiting for book two to find out.  

Coming face-to-face with my past changes EVERYTHING.

I’m at the top of my game. All my struggles have finally paid off. Life should be great.

I mean, life is great.

Except for the fact that I can’t stop thinking of her. The woman who mangled my heart into a bloody pulp and never looked back.

If I could free myself of our shared memories, my future would be golden.

There’s only one way to move on—I have to confront the past, so I can move into the next chapter of my life in peace. Which means confronting her for the final time.

I had no idea that knocking on her door that day would turn my life upside down.
