Dear Heart, You Screwed Me, by Ashlee Rose | Book Review

Hello and welcome to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog, I have my book review of:

Dear Heart, You Screwed Me, by Ashlee Rose.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Death of a loved one (partner), mention of Car Accident resulting in death, Grief, Sex Scenes, (Accidental) Pregnancy.

Dear Heart,

I can’t believe I am even writing this.
I wanted a fresh start, to follow a new dream that I had to find after I lost Elijah.

Moving to New York was the best thing for me.
I had it all planned out.
New Friends, New Job and a New Adventure.

And a new adventure I had.

My best friend’s dad.
It was supposed to be a taboo fling… but it was so much more.

We were tied together by more than a mutual connection.
It ran deeper than blood.

The thought of starting over again petrified me, but here I am, ready for a new beginning and the new adventure I craved, it just wasn’t the one I had planned.

Dear Heart, you screwed me.

Dear Heart, You Screwed Me is such an emotionally charged story.

And an unmatched level of charm.

I never planned on settling down.
There wasn’t ever a reason to.
Or at least that’s what I thought,
Until she came barreling back into my life.

With long brown hair and hazel eyes,
She has the ability to disarm me with a single look.
And the little girl attached to her side?
She’s the shock I never knew I wanted.

The biggest mistake of my life.
The only woman I’ve ever loved.
If she were to say the words,
I might just give up everything for her.
 

Hendrix was a story I came across on social media, and I didn’t want to expect too much from it. Social media in general tends to hype things up waaay to much in my opinion. However, I’m really good at avoiding spoilers when I want to. I’m just going to say it:
