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?
First and foremost, this can be read as a standalone, however, for those of us who have been reading Carian Cole for a while, have been waiting for this story for what seems like forever. Though I have read several books in this series and the spin-off, I have not read them all (yet) and was not lost. Okay, now the review. I am at a loss for words. Asher by Carian Cole is a story about true love and everything that comes with it. Love and marriage is not easy by any means, but when you love with all your heart and know you are with your soul mate, anything is possible, right?
Asher and Ember were always meant to be. Best friends, lovers and everything else, they knew they were it for each other. Even with all the craziness of being rock legends, their love was always true. But when tragedy struck, was it all over? Not for Asher. Ember was his life and soul and that was the end of it. Even though now she cannot remember her past, he is ready to be her future. My heart hurt and soared while I read this. It was a beautiful and heartbreaking story and I devoured every second of it. This is truly a must-read!
