Also in this series: Braking Without You
I've been many things in my life: daughter, friend, student, lover, wife…and now, widow. Getting past those labels and finding who I could be without them was the hardest thing I've ever done.
Then I became friends with Brendon Connolly.
Every time I look at him, I see a past, I see a present, and I’m afraid if I look too hard, I’ll see a future.
I've known Harmony Wynham since before she got married. Before she lost everything. I didn’t know that one day she wouldn’t be just my friend but the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
Only I don't think that can happen.
Not when every time she looks at me, she sees what she lost, and I can only see what I can't overcome.
I love her, even though I shouldn't. Somehow, we need to find a balance.
Because if we don't, walking away will be the hardest thing I've ever done—even if it's the only thing I should do.
Series: Fractured Connections #2
Shouldn’t Have you by Carrie Annie Ryan is the second book in her Fractured Connections series and gives us the story of Harmony and Brendon. This was such an emotional and touching friends to lover romance. Harmony and Brendon have been friends for a long time, but after a tragedy, they reconnect again in ways they never imagined.
Harmony lost her husband and was learning to cope with that when she loses one of her best friends. She has the support and love of her friends which she is so grateful for. When she decides to start dating again, she can’t seem to find what she is looking for. Brendon was friends with and worked with her husband. Though Brendon does not see it, he was such a good man. He knows he cares and wants Harmony but does not think he can be with her. They share a great friendship and connection and I love seeing them together.
Shouldn’t Have You by Carrie Ann Ryan was such an emotional romance. Harmony and Brandon were such great characters with a charming slow burn romance.
