In this book we have three main characters. We have Evelyn (Ev for short) who is a photographer. We also have Clark who has been her best friend for over 20 years, and Danny who is her boyfriend that she has been with for over 4 years.
I signed up for this book because I have been in the same situation as Ev before. She came home from work one day to find her boyfriend of four years had packed up his things and vanished into thin air. I never found out what happened with mine that got (went) away so obviously wanted to find out why Ev’s boyfriend left. I also wanted to know if what I felt was what someone else thought someone should feel in these circumstances.
So, I honestly felt a lot of the same anger/emotions that Ev did when Danny left her. The author did hit that right on the money. What I didn’t have that she did was a male best friend that was there to pick up the pieces. Clark helped her through all of her despair, made her eat when she didn’t remember, reminded her to shower, and tried to help her out of her funk. All while they both realized they may have more than friend feelings toward each other. I really appreciated that they didn’t just jump into something and that Ev wanted to preserve their friendship. She made sure they were actual feelings and she wasn’t just using them to replace her feelings for the hurt she felt by Danny leaving.
So where this book totally fell apart for me was when she discovers why Danny left. I could totally understand the dilemma she must have felt. I just wish she would have taken more time to consider the consequences of her decisions. She turned out to be such a big jerk to Clark. I even made a note on my Kindle about what a selfish person she was. I can’t imagine acting that way toward any of my friends, especially one I had feelings for. The book definitely needs to be edited for basic grammar errors and while I loved the plot, I sort of felt like this book (only 90 pages) was just a long outline for the real story. I really hope the author will consider making it a full length story and expanding on a lot of the concepts in the book.
